    Features


    Mop your floors without lifting a finger

    This robotic vacuum easily navigates around your home to clean your floors even when you're not home. Works on most hard-surface floors, including hardwood, tile, vinyl and laminate.

    Capture dust, dirt, hair and grime

    Choose from two modes — dry sweeping or damp mopping. Use with disposable or microfiber cleaning cloths to pick up daily dirt, dust and hair. 1 dry sweeping cloth and 1 damp mopping cloth included.

    Scans, maps and methodically cleans each room

    Smart sensors as well as cliff-detection sensors help the robot avoid stairs, area rugs and raised transitions to carpeted areas to effectively clean your home.

    Determines which areas have been cleaned and which ones require attention

    NorthStar navigation works like an indoor GPS to clean until the job is done.

    Effectively cleans your living spaces

    Wall-following technology helps the robot mop along walls, baseboards and edges. 3.1" low profile cleans under furniture, beds and kickboards.

    Up to 1,000 sq. ft. dry-mopping coverage area

    Along with damp-mopping coverage up to 350 sq. ft. to keep an expansive area clean. Additional NorthStar cubes (not included) expand dry-mopping coverage up to 2,000 sq. ft.

    Maintains a damp cloth during use

    The Pro-Clean system along with a reservoir cleaning pad dispenses liquid throughout the cleaning cycle to ensure reliable performance.

    Clean large spaces efficiently

    An 8-1/2" cleaning path width covers a wide swath of flooring with each pass and battery-powered design allows the vacuum to clean a vast expanse of flooring before charging.

    Easily clean hard-to-reach areas

    The compact, lightweight design weights just 4 lbs. and fits under most sofas, tables and more. A soft-touch bumper helps prevent damage caused by impact.

    Simple power replenishment

    Turbo Charge Cradle recharges Braava quickly.

    Change a cloth in the middle of a cleaning cycle

    The pause/resume feature lets you swap out a dirty cloth for a fresh one without interrupting a cleaning.

      Cleans well, but the cube is annoying

      This isn't like the roomba where it will map out your home. It uses cubes that project on your ceiling. This works fine for the room where you place the cube, but doesn't work well with one cube and multiple rooms. It holds enough water to clean half of a 1400 square foot apartment, but it only partially cleans two of three rooms. In the two smaller rooms it looses the signal from the cube which I place in the largest room. This should have been designed like the roombas or the Braava jet 240 where it doesn't require the cube and just simply maps out the rooms when cleaning. The Braava jet 240 doesn't hold enough water and doesn't use cloths as the 380t does. The cloths are a plus as you can use them, wash them, then reuse. The cloths are like common lint free clothes. They seem to be made of the same material. The mop doesn't try to go on carpet, so no worries there. The 380t is larger than the 240, so I suspect the 240 would clean in a few places in my apartment where the 380 doesn't fit, but it's only a couple places where the 380t doesn't clean. The larger size does give more room for a larger battery compared to the 240 thereby giving the 380 plenty of runtime. The 380t shouldn't entirely replace mopping. It should take care of your floors in between the times that you mop which it does well. If your hardwood/tile floors are small (300 square feet or smaller), I would recommend looking at the 240, but if your rooms are much larger as mine are, the 380t is the better one to go with even with having to deal with the cube since you won't have to keep adding water multiple times per cleaning. Of note: the 380t is manual start so it doesn't have scheduling capabilities and doesn't connect to any app. For some this may be a deal breaker, but since I have to fill it with water before each cleaning, I have to handle the 380t anyway, so it not having scheduling capabilities wasn't a problem for me. All of these mops will be much better when iRobot adds a built in water heater and full scheduling capabilities.

      iRobot - Braava 380t is a great start

      My first impression is the iRobot - Braava 380t is a great auto Swiffer. This isn't intended to say there is anything wrong with it in any way. But you have to keep in mind that there isn't any type of vacuuming actually happening. It simply uses a pad (you can actually use the Swiffer pads) and pushes the dirt around. It DOES indeed do a good job at this, but if you are looking for a vacuum, you'll need to look at another model. I'm pleased with the "mop" feature. You just change to the other pad and base, fill with water, and set it to go. This is still Swiffer style of mopping. The map system does do a fairly good job. After I rearranged the living room it took a little longer for it to re-learn the layout but it did get it done. My plan is to keep this for the "mop" feature and get a second model that will actually vacuum. Just haven't decided on what model fits our needs just yet. With what I know now after making the purchase, I would still purchase this again if I had it to do all over. 90% of our house is hard wood floors and this does a good job of the light work. We just set it to run at night and put it back on the charger in the morning. SUPER quite (due to no vacuum feature) The bump sensor works well. I haven't noticed it hit anything hard.

      Worth buying

      Initially I was not sure if the Braava was worth the money - after all it is not a big deal to sweep and mop floor, but after using it for a couple of months I am sold on this little worker. The iRobot does it's job while I can relax and enjoy, and it does more thorough job than I would do. One cube covers 2 rooms and the hallway and it takes about 45 minutes to finish sweeping. Mopping takes longer, but it covers the same surface in one charge. My floors were never this clean and shiny. Why the 4 stars, then? 2 things could have been improved: 1. This unit is, basically, a computer and I believe the software keeps improving with time, but iRobot doesn't allow the software update. For such an expensive sweeper/mop a USB port could have been added to download the upgrades, or, better yet, OTA upgrades, like cell phones have. As it is, we soon are going to be stuck with an outdated model. 2. Only the lower part of the unit is padded for protection against hitting the furniture, but sometimes it is the upper part of the unit that hits a bottom of my low-standing desk, and it is not protected, so I am afraid it is going to break soon. Other than that - it is a nice little hardworking unit. If you like rest more than work - you are going to appreciate it.

      Basically a robotic Swiffer

      Posted
      Bogetta

      I bought this because I have 2 basset hounds that shed and I don't have time to sweep my stained concrete floors daily. This works perfect in between a good deep cleaning. Plus, I have back issues, so this makes it where I can wait a tad longer between said deep cleanings. What this basically is is a robotic Swiffer. It doesn't vacume, you attach a cloth and it will basically sweep up the floor and most of the dust/dirt/hair will stick to the dry cloth. Then you can run the mop part and it pushes a wet cloth all around your floors. The manual said that you can't use with Swiffer products, but I have and I haven't had a problem. Using something disposable also keeps me from having to wash the washable wet and dry pad that came with the robot every day. My dogs are big babies, but this doesn't scare them; it's really quiet. It gets into places that I normally can't get to to clean, such as under cabinets and under furniture that isn't too low for it to get under. I haven't had an issue with mine getting stuck either like some people seem to have had. I usually just move small things and cords out of the way and let it do its thing. The only cons is that it is a little slow and can take a long time to complete a job (especially since it's so thorough) and that the little tank for water is super duper teeny. It would be nice not to have to fill it up with liquid so often. On the plus side, the battery seems to last quite a while. I can sweep and mop my living room, kitchen, dining room, a bathroom, laundry room, hall, and one bedroom before the battery runs out. And all are decent sized rooms; even the bathroom. Overall, this does what I needed. Now If they would make one that vacuumes, sweeps, AND mops, it'll be perfect.

      Good little robotic swifter

      I used this little iRobot for the first time today. I couldn't be more pleased. It does just as advertised, and does it so quietly. It acts like a little robotic swifter, but it gets underneath everything it can and gets so much dirt, it's great. It isn't a vacuum, but it doesn't claim to be. As far as the mopping, it does a great job if you don't expect it to scrub. I didn't. I just wanted a mop. It is so easy to operate. You do have to change the pads every room, or you will just be pushing dirt around. But if you change them, it does a great job. It is very quiet, but it does bump into things, so be prepared. Make sure to pick up anything off the floor that you can, especially cords. Once it maps the room, it does go in straight lines to sweep and in little v shapes to mop. It plays a little song when it starts, and another to alert you when it is finished in the room. Changing the pads is super easy. I used swifter cloths for the dry sweeping and the enclosed wet pad for the mopping. I had tried the robot vacuum 880 before this. But I sent it back because it is so loud in a house with all hardwood and tile floors. It gave me a headache. This one is so quiet that I have to check on it if I am in another room. I can't hear it. You will still have to vacuum before this, but in between vacuuming, this is amazing. Thank you, IRobot! And thank you, Best Buy, for a sale price!

      We were at a friends house when we experience this bot for the first time and was impressed on how well it did on tile. We have laminate floors and was initially skeptical on how well it will do and if there would be any risk with water leaking into the laminate. It's been ran 4-5 times through the entire house and it has been impressive. The mop liquid attachment drops water at a slow rate so not to saturate the floor but enough that when done, it feels like a regular mop went through the area. Note it will not mop away sticky or dry areas but it does well to make the floors clean to barefeet. The bot has some weight to it but it helps to apply pressure as it mops away but not heavy to lift. Its not like a botvac that self docks because of how it is placed on the charger but it definitely satisfies the level of cleanliness desired. Since it doesn't self dock, I've found it stopped at random points in the house and would have to pick it up and place it on the dock. However, with the quality of work this guy dishes out, it can be overlooked. Another note, our household has two dogs and five cats.

      Overall this robot is ok, could be much better. Feels outdated comparing to other roomba bots. 1st bad - it cannot use laser gates from other roomba bots. 2nd bad - it uses special beacon cube to point it somehow to the center of the cleaning area 3rd - you have to buy extra beacons or relocate the original multiple times 4th - relatively small cleaning area 5th - no indication of the water level 6th - can fall downstairs 7th - weird charging station, you have to load it sideways. Has no "homing" features. 8th - no automation, no scheduling due to the lack of this feature completely and due to charging station design. Overall cleaning quality is good, considering that it is rubbing the same area with dump cloth many times over. Single charge is sufficient for 2 cleanings. Very quiet. Can sneak up on you. Overall good, but requires major overhaul to modernize.

      I purchased this as a mother's day gift to compliment the iRobot Roomba my mother already has. Between her being an ER Nurse and my father working all day too, combined with their 3 dogs and 2 cats, they don't have a lot of time and what little they do, they put into cleaning up after all the animals. Both the Roomba and the Braava 380t have given them the blessing of more time to enjoy life instead of having to worry about cleaning. After the roomba does a cleaning better than any other device I've seen, they send out the Braava to finish the job. My mother texted me after the first few times running it saying "I've never seen my floors shine so brightly. Even brighter than when we used the Hoover floor scrubber in the past." I also have a roomba/Braava combo at my house as well and it has been amazing to not have to worry about those two chores. Most people do not likes Vacuuming and mopping because they're chores and you'd much rather be doing something that interests you. Buy this if you want a quality mop without the expense of your time.
