AIRROBO P20 Robot Vacuum Review1 scaled

Any links to online stores should be assumed to be affiliates. The company or PR agency provides all or most review samples. They have no control over my content, and I provide my honest opinion.

I have previously reviewed the AIRROBO T10+, which is one of the most affordable LiDAR mapping and self-emptying robot vacuums on the market. It has been excellent, and I still use it as my main robot vacuum now.

On the more basic end of the spectrum, AIRROBO has the P10, which currently costs just £120 on Amazon but regularly drops down to around £90.

The new P20 is the new upgraded model with improved cleaning performance.

The P20 improves on the existing P10. The main thing is that it has a much more powerful suction level for superior cleaning. It then has a larger dustbin, and AIRROBO has mode the robot 1m smaller in height which should allow it to fit under things fractionally easier.

App settings

The AIRROBO app is basic but functional. It has all the features you would expect from any other robot at this price point.

You can manually start it in auto mode or set a schedule and can select edge, spiral or spot cleaning. Under the preference setting, you can select the suction level.

Within the settings, you can set the speed of the vacuum, either meticulous or quick clean, and you can see the remaining life in the brushes and filters.

Navigation & Obstacle Avoidance

I have a strong preference for LiDAR or VSLAM-based robot vacuum cleaners that will map out your property with either lasers or cameras. This allows you to have multi-room cleaning without the robot getting constantly stuck.

However, depending on your scenario and budget, that style is not always needed. I happily used my Eufy RoboVac 30C for well over a year. We have a large kitchen and dining area, and we used the boundary strips to ensure it stayed within this room. It was perfect for cleaning in this scenario.

The AIRROBO P20 will work in a similar manner. It has no mapping and instead uses a gyroscope for navigation. It will work best in large open-plan living arrangements or for room-specific cleaning.

Object detection is almost nonexistent in comparison to the more advanced options. AIRROBO advertise this as having improved obstacle detection, and I’d say 50% of the time, it does seem to stop before bashing into something, but it is still very much reliant on its bumper. Like all of these vacuums, it is only ever a gentle nudge before it stops and changes direction.

With the gyroscopic navigation, it will attempt to do a logical back and forward style clean, which should be more efficient than the completely random directions some robot vacuums use.

Within the app, there is a map section, and it does give you the impression of mapping. However, this is displayed just to show you the area it has cleaned. It does not intelligently remember the map and use it for future navigation.

Cleaning Performance

Due to the number of rooms, objects and cables, my home isn’t very friendly for robot vacuums without navigation. For this review, we kept it limited to the kitchen, which is all hard flooring, plus some limited testing on carpets.

While this may not be as smart as other robot vacuums I have reviewed recently. The cleaning performance is just as good as many options on the market.

This is rated at up to 2800Pa, but this Is only for spot and spiral cleaning modes. The standard mode is 1500Pa, and the powerful mode is 2000Pa.

Looking at all the Anker RoboVac models I have reviewed, they all max out at 2000Pa.

The dustbin capacity is 600ml which is about average for this style of cleaner.

For my kitchen/dining area, this worked well, it happily bumped around, cleaning up all the mess I make on a day-to-day basis when cooking. Similarly, when testing it in my living room, on carpet, the high suction power allowed this to collect an impressive (and disgusting) amount of dirt.

With this being as affordable as possible, there is no mopping attachment or any other advanced functions.

Price, Availability and Alternative Options

The AIRROBO Robot Vacuum P20 is currently available on Amazon US. The RRP is $199.99, but with the promo code p20promo, you get 40% off, taking it down to $119.99.

On Amazon US, the older P10 is currently £140 with a $30 off voucher.

At the time of writing, the AIRROBO P20 is not available on Amazon UK, but I have noticed them listing the P20 charging station, so I expect it will be available imminently.

In the UK, the older AIRROBO P10 has an RRP of £120, but at the time of writing, it has a £30 off voucher, making it an absolute bargain at £90.


The AIRROBO P20 is an excellent robot vacuum, with the main selling point being it is priced extremely aggressively. It will be hard to find another vacuum for significantly less.

If you have a simple home layout or just want it to clean one room, then this does a perfectly good job in comparison to the much more expensive robot vacuums with mapping.

If you just want a cheap robot vacuum, then the only reason not to buy this is that the AIRROBO P10 might be a bit cheaper.
