Under the vacuum, it’s is pretty similar to its competitors. There is a central standard bristle brushroll with a spiral pattern that helps to pull the debris in more effectively and resist tangles.

The two spinning brushes on the side help to capture debris along edges and corners.

There are three wheels—two along the sides to transition between different flooring surfaces and one small wheel at the front to direct steering and navigation.

The two metal plates to the side of the front wheel are actually charging contact plates. This feature allows the robot to charge wirelessly when it reaches the charging dock.

Bagotte Performance

To assess the overall performance of the Bagottee BG700 robot vacuum, we put it to the test in our at-home testing lab, where we made a big mess and saw how the Bagotte handled it.

Our mess consisted of a mix of debris, including: cereal, rice, kitty liter, and sugar.

Cleaning test debris types
Testing Debris – From left to right: Rice (3 oz.), Kitty Litter (3 oz), Cereal (1 oz), Sugar (3 oz)

Overall, the cleaning performance of this robot vacuum was consistent with the performance we see from most of these Chinese-made robots — pretty good, not flawless.

The performance on hardwoods was near perfect (99%) and the performance on carpet, both high and low, showed consistent signs of struggle with fine debris, like sugar. (93%)

Cleaning Hardwoods

On hardwoods, this robot vacuum breezed through, capturing 100% of the cereal, kitty litter, & rice and leaving negligible amounts of sugar on the testing lane.

All in all, this was a solid performance this robot is a great performer on hard flooring.

Cleaning Low Carpet

On low carpet, the vacuum struggled a bit more, capturing most all of the cereal, kitty litter & rice and having worse performance on the fine debris. On average, it cleaned 93% of all of the debris dropped.

Cleaning High Carpet

Cleaning high carpet, the Bagotte had pretty much the same issues. Again, performance of sugar cleanup was less than the other debris types.

Typically, high pile carpets is an area where robot vacuums struggle. However, the Bagotte managed to perform equally as well on high pile carpets as it did low pile.

  1. Hello! Do you know if the charger works well in 220 v electricity? I live in Argentina, and I heard it has like a fast charger mode at 220. Thanks! Bye

    • Unfortunately, I’m not sure about Rocio. We only have the 110v here in the US. Sorry I don’t have better info.

    • I own this exact model of robot vacuum so I can confirm: the power adapter is universal and lists support for 100-220V. You will need the right adapter plug for your country’s receptacle but the adapter itself is marked to work.
