iRobot Mint Plus (5200)

iRobot Mint+

I was secretly hoping that iRobot will bring a new version of the Mint mopping robot to Vegas, but I only found the Mint Plus (also known as Mint 5200) at iRobot's booth. Evolution Robotics, the original developer of the Mint robot line was acquired by iRobot in September 2012, and I hoped that this event had sped of the development of the Mint lineup. I was wrong. Instead of a new model, iRobot has integrated the Mint Plus and Mint II into their product portfolio, and offers the same old models that served home owners since the end of 2011.

The Mint Plus brought a few improvements over the original Mint that I have reviewed in August, 2011. It can now handle more than one navigation cubes (beacons) and has a special reservoir in the cloth holding pad to prevent the drying out of the reusable cleaning cloth. The cubes help the Mint Plus to roam from room to room that extends the range of the robot significantly.
