    The SpinWave Cordless Powered Mop is building on a solid product lineup from Bissel. Assembly was a'snap' and requires little to no time to get this product ready for use - other than doing the initial full-charge conditioning of the battery. Overall, the cleaning effectiveness of this machine is solid. The weight and balance of this power mop feels nearly perfect along with the height (extension) of the handle. In operation, the rotation action provides a steady and predictable amount of forward 'pull', never feeling like it is going to take off or go out-of-control. The kit comes with two sets of cleaning pads, one for set that can be used for any surface because of the relative softness of the contact surface and a second set explicitly designed for increased scrubbing action - which is not recommended for hard woods or delicate surfaces. We found both pad types to be extremely effective in removing dirt otherwise left behind by our Shark steam-based cleaner. Outstanding! The unit is not very loud in operation and charges relatively quickly. Cannot comment on the battery life duration due to the limited time to test but at first blush, it appears this system should easily clean a few hundred square feet at least twice under normal conditions. Cleaning solution consumption was markedly less than expected and our floors dried quickly with the provided solution. The only gripe I have about this system is that it only comes with one set of each type of cleaning pad. I don't see the added cost factor of providing two sets of each as a big deal and it would make for a better customer experience to always have at least 1 extra set of pads in waiting. At the very least, Bissel should include 2 sets of the basic cleaning pad as this will be the more commonly used arrangement. Other than that minor nit, the overall design and performance far exceeded our expectations. Pros: Easy to assemble. Light weight and very well balanced in-hand. Remarkably quiet in operation. Strong yet controlled motion on tile and hardwood surfaces. Charges quickly. Cleans thoroughly with a minimum amount of solutions sprayed. Cons: Should come equipped with 2 sets of the regular pads and 1 set of the deeper cleaning, scrub pads. @@@@@ 4 and half stars to be sure and we'd recommend this product to friends & family without a second thought.

    Better than a manual pad-type mop but a bit pricey

    Pros: * Lightweight * Easy to use * Sufficient motor power * Adequate battery life * Refillable fluid bottle and reusable cleaning pads Cons: * Could use more pressure on the pads for deeper cleaning * Easy to "walk away" while spinning so have to control its motion * Poor value versus similar non-motorized mops We've terrazzo and tile flooring throughout our home. Vacuuming is necessary for regular maintenance but wet mopping must also be done to get the typical traffic areas and muddy foot and paw prints. We've tried everything from manual (Swiffer-type) to motorized (Floor-mate) options and even semi-commercial spinning hard floor cleaners. They all have their pros and cons, so we're constantly on the look-out for better options. The Bissell SpinWave Cordless mop is a reasonably good option for fill-in cleaning but isn't quite optimal for more intense cleaning. The unit's relatively light which is a double-edged sword for cleaning floors; it's easy to carry from room to room, but the lack of heft means that it doesn't really muscle in to scrub the floors. It does a better job than the manual mops due to the spinning pads so it's great for day-to day cleaning, but not so great for really deep cleaning. There are two buttons on the handle that are easy to see and use; one for turning the unit on and off and the other for manually spraying the solution from the refillable bottle. The battery status LEDs are easy to see and understand, too. The AC adapter is a typical wall-wart type that plugs into a hole on the handle. A docking base would be really nice, since it has a docking tray (to keep the wet pads from sitting on the floor) but you still have to plug the charging cable in separately. Overall, the unit cleans well enough and is easier to use than a manual spray-type mop for every-day cleaning. The value for the price paid isn't the best, and would be better at a lower cost (price reduction or when on sale). The included reusable pads and refillable bottle make the price paid a bit easier to accept since you don't have to continuously buy new bottles of fluid or replace disposable pads.

    Quick and easy mopping

    This is a pretty good product. It reminds me of a floor waxer with two spinning pads. I like that I can squirt a little or a lot of cleaner making it so the floor drys quick if it's not really dirty. It's easy to maneuver and not too heavy. It comes with a tray to store it in so the wet pads aren't sitting on the floor. This seems best if you have a large area. I had issues with small areas because the pads are so big. Like using it in a bathroom is hard to get around the toilet and such. Also there's no way to get into corners. I wish the battery lasted longer as well. You get 20 min out of a 4 hour charge. I did 4 small areas that didn't use up all the "small area" cleaner amount and I was down to less than 33% of battery. I'm not sure how you make the battery last for a big area. The scrubbing pads make quick work of spots on the floor that a mop would require some pressure to get off.

    Works Great, Easy to Use

    I've been using a spray bottle and a push mop to clean my hardwood floors for a few years. The SpinWave does an excellent job removing spots off the floor and restoring a shine I don't quite get from a push mop. Pros: The spinwave comes with two different types of pads. One set for occasional cleaning and a 2nd set with scrubbers for tougher jobs. Applying the pads are pretty easy. Lay them in the tray that comes with the SpinWave and sit the heads straight down on top and the velcro does the rest. Using the mop is pretty simple. Push the power button and it starts rotating. It moves a bit odd at times as the heads rotate on the floor, but it's pretty easy to control. Pull the trigger when you're ready for cleaning solution. The spray goes about 5-6 inches in front of the mop and the cleaning agent worked great on my floor. The pads are washable so your not roped into constantly buying disposable pads. Cons: The battery life isn't super but it's enough to finish my floors. It is also a bit large and the scrub pads take up a lot of room. Storage may be a bit tricky for some. Some may find navigating it a bit difficult as the spinning pads may sway it in one direction or another, but after a few minutes, I had a pretty good handle on it. Final Thoughts: I would recommend this if you're looking to get away from the mop or disposable pads and want to get a great shine with less effort.

    A fun way to mop

    Bissell Spinwave Intro This SpinWave mop makes mopping fun. sort of. It's light and it has a built-in handle to make it easier to carry around. It's quiet so go right ahead and mop in the middle of the night. The power button is located on the handle for ease of operation. You can pause and put the unit on stand-by by putting it in the upright position. However, reclining it back to the cleaning position takes putting your foot on the unit's foot and pulling the handle back. A release lever would have been nice. It's cordless! Yay! It takes about three and a half hours to fully charge the battery and the charge have typically been good for +/-20 minutes of continuous cleaning time. There are three LED charge indicators located on the front (3 LEDs=100%-67%, 2 LEDs=66%-33%, 1 LED=32%-10%, 1 flashing LED means you should take a break and charge the unit). The clean water tank has fill lines to easily mix water and the cleaning formula. One for small room cleaning and another for a large room. I don't think the battery charge will last for that large room cleaning though. It comes with 4 reusable and washable pads. Two regular pads and two pads with rough strips for scrubbing. Because the cleaning formula leaves streaks on tiles, noticeable on dark tile floors. Because of that, I mainly use the scrubber pads for cleaning then use the regular pads to buff the streaks out. So much for making mopping fun and easy. There is a push button on the handle to dispense the formula and it will also make a buzzing noise while it's dispensing. It comes with a storage tray which keeps the unit off the floor and helps vent the wet cleaning pads for faster drying time. Pros - Cordless - Light weight - Cleaning pads are reusable and washable Cons - Cleaning formula leaves streaks - 3+ hours charging time for -20 minutes cleaning time - Needs a release lever to recline the unit Outro If you need to do some maintenance mopping, this will do the work easily. Instead of the breaking out the old fashioned bucket and mop, you might just reach out for this Bissell SpinWave!
