TP-Link Tapo Robot Vacuum and Mop Combo

The RV10 robot vacuum-mop combo has three levels of electronic mopping to cover up to 2,100 square feet in one go. Before vacuuming carpets or rugs, you can simply detach the mop attachment. The HEPA filter should capture about 99% of allergens as little as 0.3 microns.

For your reference, 500 square feet should take about an hour, and about an hour is how long your RV10 unit might last despite the advertised three hours of battery life.

Suction modes

There are four suction modes to clean pet hair and other debris:

  1. Quiet
  2. Standard
  3. Turbo
  4. Max

The floating suction vent stays close to the ground to clean as much as possible. The noise level should not be louder than a microwave. Regarding hair-tangling, the main brush is detachable to get any hair out of it.


Whenever a carpet is found, the RV10 boosts its suction on its own for the best results, including on medium-pile carpets. Needless to say, the RV10 can transition from hard surfaces to carpets if the height is 0.79 inches.

How it moves

With gyroscope navigation, the RV10 moves in an organized S-shaped zigzag pattern for more efficiency without skipping many spots like random-route robot vacuums.

Admittedly, if there are irregularly shaped spaces, such as a triangular shaped space under a table, the RV10 may get stuck in a loop until it loses battery and needs to redock to recharge.


Whenever the battery is low, the RV10 goes back to its dock to recharge and then resumes its mission from where it left off. A caveat is that the RV10 may not be successful in doing so if you manually drive it during a cleaning cycle. Other reasons may cause it to not redock as well.

Spatial awareness

Multiple cliff sensors on the RV10 make it avoid falling off heights to its demise. This bot can also go under furniture to clean there if needed, thanks to its low profile. If you want to set virtual barriers for the RV10 not to trespass, you may be able to purchase a magnetic strip separately.

Smart control

Use the Tapo App to control the RV10 or even make use of voice control through Amazon Alexa and Google Home. You can do things like schedule a cleaning or switch cleaning modes during a session.

With voice control, you can say things like:

  • “Alexa, ask Tapo to vacuum after 6:00 PM.”
  • “Alexa, ask Tapo to start cleaning the kitchen.”
  • “Alexa, ask Tapo where it is.”

Do you have children or pets that might trigger the RV10 accidentally? Make use of the lock feature!


The RV10 is probably best used in a home with floors and carpets but without a nuanced layout.
