The HOBOT LEGEE D8 Robot Mop & Vacuum Cleaner Launches in the UK

Solenco, a company specialising in air treatment and lifestyle technology, has launched the HOBOT robot vacuum cleaner and mop into the UK market. The HOBOT LEGEE D8 offer eight cleaning modes, tangless suction, an ECO Compactor™ and its own 4-in-1 cleaning station.

The HOBOT LEGEE D8 robot mop and vacuum cleaner has been designed to keep floors clean and dust-free. It boasts eight cleaning modes and 5000Pa suction, which is said to be capable of capable of tackling everything from stains to lint and hair removal.

As you would expect from the very latest technology, this robot cleaner can recognise different types of flooring material and will automatically lift itself by 7mm to glide easily onto carpets, intelligently switching cleaning modes in real time.

Its reciprocating mop has a pressurised wiping force with a platform that scrubs up to 1300 times per minute to clean flooring efficiently, and the robot vacuum cleaner’s ability to collect residual water means it can wipe the floor dry and streak-free.

The LEGEE D8 integrates five technologies to help it plan the best cleaning route and uses advanced AI to recognise and avoid obstacles.

It also features an ECO Compactor™ (shown above) that automatically compresses dirt collected to conserve up to five times its capacity. This enables households to run the D8 five times longer, minimising maintenance by reducing the need to empty the dustbin so often.

The cleaner’s smart D-shaped design and side brush also ensure thorough cleaning on edges, corners, and underneath cabinets, curtains, and sofa skirts.

The LEGEE-Lulu 4-in-1 Cleaning Station refills recharges, cleans and dries the D8, making cleaning the robot hassle-free. High-speed dual rollers scrape down dirt efficiently to clean the mop entirely, and heated air blows directly through a specially designed wind tunnel to dry the damp cloth evenly and quickly.

The station also features an instant drain system, so consumers can avoid messy sediment and manual maintenance.

“The HOBOT LEGEE D8 offers an extremely smart and unparalleled cleaning experience for households, with a combination of features that make home cleaning as effortless and energy efficient as possible,” explains Trevor Brewer, Director at Solenco.

The charging station

“With the addition of the LEGEE-Lulu cleaning station, everything to make keeping your home clean as hassle-free as possible has been considered. The HOBOT products have been a huge success in the Australian and South African markets, and the LEGEE-D8 was declared a Gold Winner at the A’Design Awards 2023. Good Housekeeping UK has recently reviewed the LEGEE-D8 and gave it their stamp of approval, so we are confident that UK consumers will love it too.”

The LEGEE app is abundant with features to manage the HOBOT LEGEE D8. Its highly customisable functions allow households to build their own cleaning mode, selecting the cleaner and mop functions that most suit their requirements or space.

The D8 cleaner can store multiple maps for multistorey houses, recognising where it has been placed and cleaning the area with no extra instruction.

Smart features such as the ability to assign virtual barriers to avoid and curtain zones on maps make the D8 a sophisticated addition to a home. Unlike many similar competitive models, all mapping data for the D8 is stored on the device rather than in the cloud for added security.

In addition, the LEGEE-D8 can store and automatically switch between three sets of Wi-Fi networks and use Hotspot to connect if Wi-Fi is unavailable.

The RRP for the HOBOT LEGEE-D8 is £599, and the RRP for the HOBOT LEGEE Lulu is £399. More information on these two models, including more detailed information on their capabilities, is available at
