I’m sitting on the floor now because I want to say sorry. I’m sorry because I’m potentially going to make you spend some money. Introducing the Roborock Dyad Pro Combo.
Everything that we’ve written in this article is better seen in action. So, watch our video for a better experience.
If you’re interested in getting a full-fledged stick vacuum with the ability to also mop your floor, then look no further. This is the best you can get today. Why? Well, it’s time for some backstory.
The idea of a vacuum cleaner-cum-mopping machine is not new. There are many other similar products in the market right now but what Roborock did differently is having the ability to convert between a vacuum-cleaner-cum-mopping device into a standard stick vacuum. And yet this is a very affordable device too – at somewhere around RM2,699 or USD $460 but the prices fluctuate since they constantly have discounts.
You might have realized that hey – there is another Dyad Pro that’s a lot cheaper. Well, the Dyad Pro does not have the things available to convert it into a stick vacuum. If you want the ability to also use it as a stick vacuum, then you’ll need the Dyad Pro Combo.
Now, when I got the Dyad Pro Combo, the box is huge. Make sure you have enough space to do the unboxing because the amount of stuff is… a lot. 15 things across 3 layers in the box, to be exact. At the top layer, we are immediately presented with the quick start guide – which is useful, especially the graphic at the bottom left corner that tells you how everything is mounted into the docking station.
Instead of going through the entire unboxing experience, let’s take a look at the entire docking station after everything is built. All the parts are separated at first, by the way. Even the base was split into 3 parts at first. The dock for the vacuum accessories can be placed on the left or right side – and I think that’s a nice touch. The power cable goes in this side. The dock also acts like a charging and cleaning station, by the way.
The entire device just sits in this slot and it’ll charge automatically. I have no idea what type of connection it does since the pins are covered in rubber, perhaps there are some mechanisms to unveil the pins when the machine is docked.
Now, the entire machine has three removable. First is a clean water tank located at the back. We can just detach it and fill water – very self-explanatory here.
The second one is a dirty water tank located at the front. We’ll need to be a bit more careful as the white part is to be separated and pour out the dirty water.
The last one is an auto detergent dispenser tank. Just fill in some detergent and it’ll automatically use it when we start mopping. Simple enough, right? In a way, this way of using detergent can actually be more efficient and generate less waste. It’s so efficient that I used it about 5 times now before needing to refill the detergent. Of course, your mileage will vary depending on your mopping floor area.
I’m not sure what’s the “certified” list of safe detergents to use with this Dyad Pro but I just use whatever that I typically use and it worked perfectly fine. Roborock does sell their own floor detergents too, by the way.
Then, we can just lift up the entire thing and press that power button on the handle, and it’ll start mopping. From what my mom, who is my co-reviewer for this Roborock Dyad Pro Combo, said this is very smooth to maneuver. It cleans the floor and immediately dries it, leaving zero wet marks or slippery floors. Even when I pressed the stop button, it will continue running for about a minute to dry the floor first, before actually stopping.
This brush inside the Dyad Pro also will butt up against whatever wall or furniture you have – and that’s excellent. However, it won’t perfectly clean the corner of your room – and that’s okay with me.
The second button is to change the vacuum strength. I just leave it in auto mode since it does an excellent job with that anyway. And it’s very quiet too, by the way.
Once the entire Dyad Pro is docked, it’ll charge and we can press the button to start the self-cleaning and self-drying routine. It’s important to do this every time to prevent any foul stench from emitting from the machine. It just cleans the mopper, and then automatically dries it after that. We’ll return to this later.
Up to this point in the video, all functionalities we have shown is the Dyad Pro only. The “combo” part is all of these stuff that provide the stick vacuum functionality.
To convert it into a stick vacuum, we have to press this button, take this part out. Then take this vacuum tube looking bell jar thing and attach it to the main unit. This part isn’t the easiest to do, though. We’ll have to align the two sockets first, then align the latch at the opposite end and snap it in place.
Then, we can start attaching the extension tube or just directly plug in a tip and start vacuuming. Once again, we can press the swirling button here to change between auto and max suction force. Pretty simple.
It’s also surprisingly quiet. I thought the vacuum would be very loud but it’s not. I once tried vacuuming at night and no one in the house heard me vacuuming at all. Surprising.
However, if we want to charge the Dyad Pro, we’ll have to reassemble back to how it was before. I should also mention about the battery life of this machine. It kinda depends on what mode you use it in. I tried using it in the max turbo mode with the mopping functionality and the battery drains pretty quickly as it only lasts about 20 minutes. In auto mode, it does last a lot longer.
If I purely use the stick vacuum functionality then the battery will last even longer since it doesn’t need to power up the mop motors.
There is a little display on the main unit that tells us what battery level it is in, and what mode we’re using.
The dustbin can be cleaned easily as we can just pop out the entire filter. It even has a handle too.
Now, this Dyad Pro can also be connected to the internet and controlled via the Roborock app. Its functionalities are pretty simple, to be honest. The dashboard has a few things for us to see – like start self-cleaning or start drying. We can also press this button and make it do those things automatically when we put the Dyad Pro back on its charging dock.
We can also do a few more other settings here like how much detergent to use, how much water to use, all of those things. We can also check the status of the filter and roller too. Of course, there is also the ability to update the firmware.
We can also change the voice or language of whatever announcement the Dyad Pro will make – but the speaker quality in itself isn’t that good. I mean, I can’t really hear what it’s trying to say most of the time.
Other than that, I think the app doesn’t offer much utility. It has some health monitoring features but I don’t have a reason to actually open the app to clean or dry the Dyad Pro since I can make it do all those things automatically anyway.
Oh – maintenance. If we want to clean the rollers, then it’s easy. We’ll have to make it sleep, then access the bottom part of it with just some knobs. We can also use the included maintenance brush to scrape things out, or use the cutter that’s built into the handle to cut tangled hair for example.
Should you buy the Roborock Dyad Pro Combo?
So overall – for the price of how much? RM2,499 only right now? Sheesh that’s a super good price. You get so many features that actually make sense. And I highly recommend you buy the Dyad Pro Combo set because you get all of these things to make it become a stick vacuum. Roborock does not sell the “combo” part separately so if you buy the Dyad Pro only, you’ll technically have to buy the entire thing once more to get the stick vacuum functionality.
And I mean, for the price of RM2,499, it’s around the price of the Hizero’s wet and dry cleaners, but they do not have the stick vacuum functionality. That’s why I’m saying that the Roborock Dyad Pro Combo is such a good deal and you should buy one too.
