The latest robot vacuum from Amarey is an incremental improvement rather than a whole new model. It takes the company’s map-enabled A900 and ratchets up the suction power from 1400 to 1600Pa, a not-insignificant upgrade given that Amarey’s vacuums have proven to be some of the best at extracting stubborn pet hair. That and its basic map capabilities make it an excellent value for animal owners in particular.
The A980 has the relatively slim dimensions of the other Amarey robot vacuums we’ve reviewed, measuring just 12.7 inches across and 3 inches high. An auto-clean button, Wi-Fi indicator, and 145-degree navigation camera—used with Visual SLAM technology to map the layout of the room—adorn the top of vacuum. A honeycomb pattern under glass gives the all-black device some eye appeal.
On the bottom, the vacuum has a single rolling brush and a pair of side brushes for cleaning, two main wheels plus a swivel wheel for maneuvering, and a power switch. Accessories include a charging dock and power adapter, a pair of extra side brushes, extra filters, magnetic boundary tape, and a cleaning tool.
You can control the vacuum with its physical remote or the Amarey Pro companion app. It’s also compatible with Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant, allowing you to start, stop, and pause cleanings with simple voice commands.
The A980 needs minimal setup to use. You just have to snap the two edge brushes onto their respective pegs on the vacuum’s underside, flip on the power switch, set the vacuum on its plugged-in charging dock, and wait until its battery is fully powered to start cleaning. Once the vacuum powers up, “Mary,” its voice assistant, lets you know she’s ready for duty.
