Many of you know that BlitzWolf focuses on music gadgets such as wireless headphones, speakers, and other devices. But the Chinese brand does not stand in one place and recently I got acquainted with a new robot vacuum cleaner, which was called BlitzWolf BW-VC2.
In the modern world, when you are always busy, it is difficult to find time to clean the apartment. This is not to mention cleaning the floors. But the technology develops every year and even now it is possible to purchase a robot vacuum cleaner, not at cosmic prices.
Let’s say, if we talk about the new robot vacuum cleaner from BlitzWolf, then the BW-VC2 model will cost you $ 320. Considering its cost, I conducted several standard tests about the quality of cleaning and I will describe them in this article.
If we talk about the capabilities of the BlitzWolf robot vacuum cleaner, then everything is like that of premium and flagship brands. It is a strong suction force of 2200 Pa and the use of a laser navigation system. I can also highlight – this is the presence of wet and dry cleaning and in addition, there is a large battery capacity of 5200 mAh.
Well, at first glance, this is an ideal robot vacuum cleaner that can kill its competitors from Xiaomi, 360, and other manufacturers. But let me tell you more about the new vacuum cleaner, is everything as smooth as it really is.

Unboxing and packaging
The BlitzWolf BW-VC2 robot vacuum cleaner is delivered in a typical style like other devices from the BlitzWolf company. It is a white box with green lines. On the front, there are no drawings, but only the inscription of the name of the model and company.
Inside the box, I found the following components – these are instructions for use. Each component was packaged very well in a separate box – this is a charging dock. Also power cable and brush to clean hair and dust. In addition, the box contained a water container with a cloth installed and of course the robot vacuum cleaner itself.
I also want to mention that the robot received the side rotary brushes already installed. Usually, these brushes need to be installed separately.
In general, the package is standard, but I want to note that each item was well-packed. Thus, there should be no problems during transportation. Now let’s talk a little about the build quality and the materials used.
Design, assembly, and materials
The new BlitzWolf BW-VC2 robot vacuum cleaner received a typical round cylindrical shape, like most other models of robotic vacuum cleaners.
But I would like to say that the plastic itself has a matte finish, which gives the device its strength in case of accidental fall or run over objects. In my case, I did not have such situations and the vacuum cleaner always worked well and without any questions. But I will talk about the work and cleaning itself a little later.
If we talk about the build quality, then I have no strong complaints. Each element is assembled perfectly and efficiently. I would also like to note that there are interesting waves on the top of the device. And they give the robot an interesting look.
You can also find on top – this is the cover behind which the container for dust and debris is hidden. The capacity of the container itself was 380 ml. Of course, this is not as much as that of most competitors, but it still has a good volume.
Next to the flip cover, there are two buttons – this is the power on and automatic go to the docking station for charging. The robot vacuum cleaner is controlled only through the mobile application, but you will learn about it in the next section. I often started seeing models with remote control, but this model does not include it in the kit.
The main feature of the BlitzWolf BW-VC2 robot is a 360-degree laser navigation system. As I have said many times, devices without laser navigation are very poorly oriented in space. In the case of BlitzWolf’s smart robots, I didn’t have such problems.
In addition to the laser navigation system, the robot received an additional 9 different sensors. They are located in show jumping and at the bottom of the body.
There are also two magnetic contacts on the side end. They are required for charging through the docking station. The docking station itself is small and is made in homage to matte and glossy plastic.
There are two drive wheels at the bottom of the smart robot vacuum cleaner. They are able to run over objects, such as a threshold, 1.5 cm high. There are also two side rotating brushes for collecting debris and a central brush for sucking the debris into the container. You can also find here – this is the central wheel, which is responsible for maneuverability. In addition, in the lower part, there are grooves into which a container with a water tank is inserted.
As for the dimensions, they were 346 x 346 x 97 mm, and the robot vacuum cleaner weighs 3.1 kg. When compared with other models, for example, Xiaomi Mijia STYJ02YM has 350 x 350 x 94.5 mm and a weight of 3.6 kg. That is, the BW-VC2 model is slightly smaller in diameter, but higher in height. It is also half a kilogram less than the competitor from Xiaomi.
In general, I liked the look and design of the new BlitzWolf BW-VC2 robot vacuum cleaner. There are many sensors installed here, and the assembly is of high quality as are the materials used. But now let’s tell you my impression and the quality of cleaning and application.
Performance, application, and cleaning quality
The BlitzWolf BW-VC2 is not as weak a robot vacuum cleaner as you might expect. For example, its suction power was 2200 Pa. If you look at competitors such as Xiaomi Mijia STYJ02YM, then it has 2100 Pa, Xiaomi Mijia 1S, and Roborock S50 – 2000 Pa.
An important parameter when choosing a vacuum cleaner is its battery capacity. In the case of the BW-VC2 model, everything is fine – it is 5200 mAh. So, the battery life will be about 2 hours and charging 4 hours. In my practice, the robot was able to work four full cleanings in a row, without recharging, since I have a small apartment of 50 square meters. Although the manufacturer has guaranteed about 280 square meters.
In terms of wireless connections, BlitzWolf has 2.4 GHz Wi-Fi and Bluetooth onboard. As I wrote above, to get the maximum functionality of the robot vacuum cleaner, you need to connect the application. The app itself is called BlitzWolf Clean and it is available for both Android and iOS devices.
After a simple pairing, which is detailed in the instructions, you can get a large list of functions and features. For example, on the main screen after the first cleaning, your apartment map will be displayed. After that, in the future, you will be able to select areas where you need to clean up or, on the contrary, where you should not clean up.
In the upper part, just above the map, there is information about the area harvested, cleaning time, and battery level. And at the bottom, there is a cleaning button, a go home button, and many other functions. For example, these are barrier setting, cleaning selection, cleaning modes, and other features.
BlitzWolf Clean app settings offer the following sections – getting updates, cleaning history, voice settings, do not disturb mode, kid mode, and much more.
In addition, you can control the BlitzWolf BW-VC2 robot vacuum cleaner via Alexa voice control. A very handy feature that will help make your home even smarter. In my practice, this option works without any problems.
If we talk about the quality of cleaning, then I really liked the operation of the device. The robot coped with the task correctly and quickly. I didn’t find it taking the same route multiple times. And all thanks to the laser navigation system and many built-in sensors.
For example, I made a fall test. I put the vacuum cleaner on the table and start cleaning. The result was positive, it didn’t drop, and that’s good.
I have also run tests on several surfaces such as laminate and carpet. Of course, on hard surfaces, it carried out better cleaning. But I don’t want to say that there is a lot of dust and debris on the carpet. Of course, if you have pets, but on the carpet, it will even be difficult to clean wool with a powerful stationary vacuum cleaner, not to mention a small smart vacuum cleaner robot.
Also, I can’t say anything bad about wet cleaning. BlitzWolf BW-VC2 has a small water capacity, but it is enough to clean my entire apartment. If you have a bigger house or apartment, then you will have to add a little water.
Conclusion, reviews, pros, and cons
The BlitzWolf BW-VC2 is a stylish matte robotic vacuum cleaner that not only looks durable but also does the job well.
Here, I can say with confidence that the device has received good performance. Due to the suction power of 2200 Pa, good autonomous operation, two cleaning modes, namely dry and wet.
On the downside, I can attribute it to a slightly tall body. Therefore, if you have sofas or a bed on legs with a small height, then it will be impossible for it to clean there. Also, I would like to get a remote control, which is not included in the package.
Price and where to buy cheaper?
Currently, anyone can buy a BlitzWolf BW-VC2 robot vacuum cleaner at a low and favorable price for only $ 319.99 with a 29% discount. The store also offers a $ 20 discount if you are a new user.
Therefore, given its low cost and technical specs, I can easily recommend a new robot vacuum cleaner for purchase.
