Roborock’s latest robot vacuum the Q5 Pro wants to stop those hair tangles with its DuoRoller Brush system. 

Released in Australia and New Zealand today, the Q5 Pro uses two rubber brushes, and 5,500pa suction to pick up debris. The rubber brushes, dubbed the DuoRoller Brush rotate in opposite directions seemingly pushing mess away from each other, leading to less blockages. According to Roborock, this system picks up 20% more hair from carpet than the Q7 range (with a single roller) does. Notably the suction has also improved from the 2,700Pa in the Q7.

The onboard dustbin holds 770ml which is around what you would expect from a large Dyson stick vac. While the Q5 Pro is a standalone vacuum and mop, the Q5 Pro+ comes with an auto-empty station that can hold up to 7-days worth of dust per bag. 

Both devices utilise LiDAR to map the environment, hold a 5,200mAh battery, and are rated to clean for four hours before needing a charge. According to Roborock, the device should cover 350 square metres without returning to the charging station. 

Q5 Pro is available from Roborock and participating retailers, starting from $699. Australian pricing for the Q5 Pro+ is not yet available, but it currently sells for $699 USD, which comes to just over $1,070 AUD. We predict the Q5 Pro+ will cost around $1,100 in Australia when it is released.
