The iRobot Roomba J7 plus is the brand’s newest robot vacuum. Also, it sits between the Roomba S9 Plus and the Roomba i7 Plus at the top of the line. While it couldn’t match the S9’s suction power, it was just as good at collecting dust and debris from both hard surfaces and carpets as the i7.
iRobot, which has been active for more than two decades, and was one of the first companies to introduce a robot vacuum. The Roomba brand continues to dominate the automatic floor-cleaning business thanks to a mix of innovative technology and tremendous suction. Roombas account for 20% of all robot vacuums sold.
It’s also iRobot’s smartest Roomba yet, with built-in AI that can recognize and identify barriers like a charging wire left on the floor or a sock. It will clean as near as possible to such things without plowing through them, preventing tangles in the brush roller.
The name Plus relates to the fact that this is a self-emptying robot vacuum cleaner. The robovac comes with a base station that is one of the smallest we’ve seen yet. Also, it will deposit the stuff of its 14oz / 0.4-liter dust container into a 57oz / 1.7-liter bag that should last roughly 60 days. Depending on how often the iRobot Roomba J7 plus vacuum cleans your floors. This does, however, imply that there will be an ongoing fee connected with this robot vacuum.

Whether cleaning hard or carpeted surfaces. The iRobot Roomba J7 Plus robot vacuum was quite quiet, recording a maximum of 64db on our decibel meter during use. This sounds like the sound of ordinary office talk.
Even better, if you stop a clean ask the robot vacuum to clean a specific area. The vacuuming components of the device will be turned off. Making the device as quiet as possible when traveling between tasks.
The robovac’s low noise doesn’t extend to when it docks and empties its dust container; in this case, our decibel meter read 90.6db. Which is the sound you’d hear standing 20 feet away from an automatic car wash. The iRobot Roomba J7 Plus is one of the noisiest robot vacuums.

On one full charge, you were able to clean all floors of a three-bedroom house. But the battery level doesn’t provide a percentage of time remaining. So we had to guess how much energy was available. The iRobot Roomba J7 Plus took three hours to completely charge.
