Roborock has just introduced its new generation of handheld vacuum cleaners, the Roborock H7. The Roborock H6 was launched last year to compete against the titan of this sector, Dyson, but now the firm has improved its product recipe with more suction power, a larger tank, and some interesting features, such as MagBase support.
The device will be available for purchase from June 2 for a price of $499 on Amazon, Geekbuying, and eBay. However, on the launch occasion, it will be available at a promotional price of $499.99. Having made the introductions, let’s get to know it a little better.

The Roborock H7 is based on the Roborock H6, so for practical purposes, it is a very similar device. The improvements focus on capacity, power, functions, and the battery, which is LiPO and now comes with fast charging.
So, the first change is in the suction power. The Roborock H7 has a 480 W motor capable of generating a suction power of 160 AW, 10 AW more than the previous model. This is designed to better vacuum on difficult surfaces, such as carpets, mattresses, or sofas. And speaking of carpets, the vacuum cleaner will automatically turn up the power when it detects them.
The device has an 80 Wh battery that, according to the manufacturer, offers an autonomy of up to 90 minutes in eco mode, 45 minutes in normal mode, and eight minutes in maximum mode. This is a similar figure to the previous model. It has fast charging and, again, according to Roborock, it charges in 2.5 hours (not bad considering the H6 charged in four hours).
The vacuum cleaner is TÜV Rheinland certified to provide constant suction, meaning it doesn’t drop in power when the tank is full or the battery starts to run down. Of course, the Roborock H7 has different cleaning modes that can be set using the 1.3-inch OLED display on the top.
On the other hand, the company has improved the capacity of the solids tank, which is now 500 ml, so it takes longer to fill and needs to be emptied less frequently. Another eye-catcher is the optional dust bags, which are antibacterial with a triple-layer filtration system. The bags, which last for about two months, seal automatically when removed from the tank, preventing dust from re-emerging when the bag is removed from the unit.
One interesting thing to note is MagBase, its magnetic storage system. The mast of the vacuum cleaner is magnetized, as well as the accessories, so you can easily place them on the mast and transport them. More functions to contemplate are the power lock (to avoid pressing the trigger all the time) and the lock for children and pets.
Pricing and Availability of the Roborock H7
As mentioned above, the Roborock H7 will be available for purchase from June 2 on Amazon, eBay, and Geekbuying for a price of $499.99, although it will be reduced to $469 for a limited time.
