Roomba Combo J9 Plus from iRobot tackles all floors

Techstination feature for Tuesday, December 5, 2023

Techstination, your destination for gadgets and gear.   I’m Fred Fishkin.        The Roomba Combo J9 + from iRobot is taking on the challengers to the pioneering robotic vacuum company.   It features an Auto-fill Dock designed to hold about a month of water for mopping…but unlike some of the competition…does not feature mop washing or storage of dirty water.  Director of Floor Care Warren Fernandez..

“The user can with one hand, literally, pop out the mopping pad, and then they’re going to properly wash it either by hand or in your washing machine.”

The Combo J9+ smartly raises the mop out of the way while vacuuming carpets.   There’s also an iRobot OS 7  feature called Dirt Detective…enabling the vacuum to prioritize cleaning certain rooms.  And then there is the SmartScrub function…to tackle the tough jobs.   Impressive.   Find more at
