TLDR: The DreameBot L20 Ultra robot vacuum cleaner is an excellent choice for homeowners who want easy and effective floor cleaning. It has strong suction, advanced MopExtend™ technology, and smart obstacle detection. It also operates quietly and can use cleaning solution. Whether you want to make cleaning easier or upgrade your current robot vacuum, the DreameBot L20 Ultra is a great option.

Robot vacuum cleaners have become popular due to our busy schedules and reluctance to do chores. They automate floor cleaning, saving us time and effort. But, how do you choose the right one to buy?

Just half a decade ago, prominent technology brands dominated the vacuum cleaner market. However, smaller brands like Dreame have gained traction in recent years. Not only do their robot vacuum cleaners offer similar functionalities to bigger brands, but they also come with a competitive price tag.

In this article, we review one of Dreame’s latest robot vacuum cleaners, the DreameBot L20 Ultra, and we share our thoughts on the following:

  1. What’s in the box?
  2. What are its functionalities?
  3. How was our experience using the DreameBot L20 Ultra?

The DreameBot L20 Ultra comes with a Robot Vacuum Cleaner, a Base Station, and a Base Station Ramp Extension plate. It includes an accessory box that contains a Side Brush, a Power Cord, a bottle of Cleaning Solution, and two pre-installed Mop Pad Holders with Mop Pads.

Additionally, the Main Brush, Dust Box Filter, and two Dust Bags (one pre-installed and the other stored in a compartment) are also pre-installed. The base station storage bin also contains a Cleaning Tool that is hidden inside.

How was my experience using the Dreamebot L20 Ultra?

So, setting up the DreameBot L20 Ultra was a piece of cake! First off, just slot the robot vacuum cleaner into the base station and download the Dreamehome app to set up your network connection.

I gotta admit, I messed up this part at the beginning, but the manual was actually pretty easy to understand and helped me fix things up super quickly. It would be even cooler if the base station was detected automatically once it’s powered on.

Navigates around stairs

Once you power up the robot vacuum cleaner, it’ll immediately start mapping the area it’s cleaning, depending on how much juice is left in the battery.

DreamBot L20 Ultra Virtual Wall

If you have steps or stairs at home, the advanced sensing feature helps the robot vacuum cleaner to navigate around stairs without any trouble whatsoever. You can even set up a virtual wall to block its path if you need to.

Cleaning noise

One common concern with vacuum cleaners is the noise they produce. Dreame addresses this issue with the DreameBot L20 Ultra, which has a noise level of only 63 dB. For comparison, the normal vacuuming speed of the DreameBot L20 Ultra is lower than a regular vacuum on its lowest suction mode behind closed doors.

This means that you can schedule it to clean early in the morning without jolting everyone out of their bed, thinking a fighter jet is taking off.

That being said, the noise level will increase when you set a higher suction speed or when it detects tougher and stubborn dirt. For my case, the base level of the vacuuming was sufficient to keep my floor clean.

Cleaning solution

DreameBot L20 Ultra Cleaning Solution

While I love the convenience of robot vacuum cleaners, one thing I wish many had was the ability to add cleaning solution for better washing. Most vacuum cleaners I’ve used did not come with this feature, but the DreameBot L20 Ultra does, which is definitely handy. However, please note that it’s always recommended to use their proprietary cleaning solution to prevent corrosion or damage.

Is the DreameBot L20 Ultra for you?

Overall, I am extremely pleased with the DreameBot L20 Ultra. Its matte black coating with a touch of gold adds a classy and elegant look to the vacuum cleaner. Even when not in use, it blends perfectly into its surroundings, making for a good art piece.

DreamBot L20 Ultra Dust bag

What’s more, the base station that automatically refills cleaning water, extracts dirty water, and dispenses dirt into the dust bag is a godsend. It alleviates the need for me to do it myself every time I send it out to clean.

I highly recommend the DreameBot L20 Ultra to all homeowners if you have not had one yet. If you stay in a double-storey home, consider getting this as your second.

The DreameBot L20 Ultra retails at $1,799. But from 9 Sept to 11 Sept, you can stand to enjoy a GRAND LAUNCH price of S$1,499 (Apply Shopee Voucher Code: DREATCH) and get a free Dreame Hair Gleam hairdryer worth S$165!
