Roborock H6 Features and Specifications
Roborock H6 is an ultralight stick vacuum cleaner weighing only ~3.1 pounds (~1.4 kg) and thanks to the full-swivel floor nozzle neck, it is a very maneuverable unit, being able to clean along the walls, and under and around furniture, beds, sofas, and other floor objects and obstacles.
Conversion between stick and handheld vacuum and back can be done in just a few seconds by removing or attaching a vacuum cleaner wand (no tools are required).
Thanks to the convertible design, long-lasting battery, lightweight construction, and available set of cleaning tools, Roborock H6 is able to clean surfaces from the floor to the ceiling.
Roborock H6 features onboard 22.2 volts (6-cell) 3610 mAh lithium battery, and comes with 420 watts suction motor, creating maximum suction of 150 Air Watts and 25 kPa.
Note: The battery is designed to withstand 400-600 charging cycles with the capacity drop down to 80% (or more) of its nominal capacity.
Also, the main Carpet Brush features 50 watts motor ensuring thorough cleaning of both bare floors and carpeted areas.
Roborock H6 features three suction modes, Eco suction mode, Standard suction mode, and Max suction mode, with runtime depending on the used cleaning tool, as listed in the following comparison chart:
|Tool/Mode||ECO Mode||Standard Mode||Max Mode|
|Crevice Tool, Dusting Brush||90 minutes||45 minutes||12 minutes|
|Motorized Mini-Brush, Floor Brush||70 minutes||35 minutes||10 minutes|
Note: actual runtime depends on the battery condition, temperature, surface type, condition of the air filters, etc. Although Roborock H6 is very simple to use and maintain cordless unit, when it arrives, be sure to thoroughly read the manual - better safe than sorry.
When the unit arrives, be sure to charge it before the first use (after reading the manual, of course).
If the battery is fully discharged, it takes some 4-5 hours to fully charge it again. Since Roborock H6 features a smart built-in Battery Management System and an intelligent battery charger, it is safe to leave the unit connected to the charger, even after the battery is fully charged.
Roborock H6 comes, by default, with the Carpet Brush as the main floor nozzle - the Carpet Brush is a multi-surface cleaning nozzle, optimized for cleaning of both bare floors and carpeted areas.
Also, one of the very interesting features of Roborock H6 is the so-called 'Auto Carpet Boost' which allows the user to vacuum floors with, for example, Standard suction mode and when the carpet is detected, the unit automatically increases the suction to the Max suction mode in order to provide the best cleaning possible.
Note: often, when vacuuming low-pile carpets, Auto Carpet Boost does NOT increase the suction automatically, since Standard suction mode is often more than enough to thoroughly clean the low-pile carpets and thin area rugs.
However, users with mostly bare floors like tiles, hardwood, marble, laminate, and similar should consider buying Hard Floor Brush - it features a soft brushroll, optimized for bare floors with anti-static fibers and anti-tangle design.
Controls of Roborock H6 are positioned very close to the handle, which could be a little bit more ergonomic, but the unit is so lightweight that it is not an issue to hold the unit for longer periods of time.
Controls include a trigger switch, sustain button, mode button, and small OLED screen that displays to the user the most important information about the unit, alerts included.
The dirt cup is transparent and is emptied directly in the trashcan. The dirt cup should be emptied after each cleaning task, or when the amount of vacuumed dirt reaches the Max Fill line.
Roborock H6 features a multilayered air filtration system that is able to filter out at least 99.97% (some sources claim even 99.99%) of 0.3 microns or larger particles making Roborock H6 a true HEPA vacuum cleaner.
In order to maintain suction and long operating time on the single battery charge, it is very important to keep the air filters clean - from time to time, it is recommended to wash them and after they are thoroughly dry, they may be returned/reassembled back into the unit.
Again, for exact maintenance procedures, be sure to read/check the Owner's Manual.
After some time, air filters should be replaced with a new set of air filters.
Note: some users order another set of air filters right away - as one set of air filters is being air-dried, another set is in the unit, allowing the user to use the vacuum cleaner at the moment notice.
When the unit arrives, the box contains Roborock H6 vacuum, cleaning wand, dusting brush, crevice tool, flex tube, carpet brush, charger, mini-motorized brush, wall mount, and Owner's Manual.
However, some online shops list Roborock H6 with a slightly different list of cleaning tools and even standing dock instead of wall mount - check actual box content before ordering or buying.

Roborock H6 Cleaning Tools
In order to clean elevated surfaces, Roborock H6 comes with a set of additional cleaning tools.
This set includes:
- Motorized Mini-Brush features a design similar to the Carpet Brush and is intended for deep cleaning of smaller carpeted areas, stairs, beds, sofas, mattresses, upholstery, etc. Since the brushroll doesn't feature a tangled hair removal system, Motorized Mini-Brush is not a maintenance-free tool and periodically has to be cleaned by the user.
- Dusting Brush is used for dusting various surfaces, especially sensitive ones.
- Crevice Tool is intended for vacuuming hard-to-reach areas like crevices (hence the name), gaps, edges, corners, etc.
Also, Roborock H6 features a flexible cleaning hose that may be very helpful when detail cleaning around the house, or when detailing the car interior, for example.
Roborock H6 vs Dyson Cordless Vacuums
With 150 Air Watts of suction power, Roborock H6 is one of the strongest cordless units on the market, comparable even to Dyson cordless units.
With the maximum suction of Dyson V8 Absolute of 115 Air Watts, Dyson Cyclone V10 Absolute of 150 Air Watts, Dyson V11 Torque Drive of 185 Air Watts, and Dyson V11 OutSize of 220(!) Air Watts, Roborock H6 has the suction very similar to the Dyson V10 - 150 Air Watts.
Both units feature similar power rating - Roborock 420 watts (+50 watts for the Carpet Brush), while Dyson V10 is rated at 525 watts.
Roborock H6 features longer operating time in both 'Eco' mode (90/70 minutes vs 60 minutes) and Max suction mode (12/10 minutes vs 8 minutes).
Also, Roborock H6 is lighter (3.1 vs 5.9 pounds) and somewhat cheaper.
On the other hand, Dyson V10 Absolute comes with Combination Tool, Crevice Tool, Mini Soft Dusting Brush, Mini Motorized Tool, Torque Drive Cleaner Head, and Soft Roller Cleaner Head - more cleaning tools out of the box.
Dyson V10 Absolute feels stronger and more robust unit - personally, they both clean well, it just seems that Dyson V10 Absolute vacuums better - and it should since it is heavier (feel more robust) and also costs more.
Long Story Short: Roborock H6 cordless vacuum cleaner is well designed, lightweight vacuum that can really help the user to keep the home clean and more pleasant to live in.
It has excellent suction and air filtration, efficient cleaning tools that clean thoroughly, it is easy to use and maintain, etc.
If You are looking for a cordless, convertible vacuum cleaner, consider this unit as your final choice - however, always choose according to your own personal needs and preferences.
