CES 2020: LG’s CordZero ThinQ Vacuums Make for A Synergistic Cleaning Network
LG Electronics’ newest cord-free cleaning products with new mopping capabilities, to be on view at CES 2020, include the CordZeroThinQ A9 Stick Vacuum, which delivers vacuuming and mopping from a single stick-type device, and the CordZeroThinQ Robotic Mop, which combines LG’s robotics and appliance technologies in a compact package. And these two devices can work synergistically, via a Wi-Fi-based relay communication system. Homeowners who own both can connect the two units via Wi-Fi to, in effect, create a home cleaning network. Once the R9 has completed vacuuming, it will notify the CordZeroThinQ Robotic Mop with information on areas of the home that require mopping.
LG’s proprietary Power Drive Mop technology is employed in both products. Thanks to an advanced automatic water supply system, two rapidly rotating mop pads have just the right amount of water to clean without leaving a puddle behind. To accommodate different types of flooring and cleaning power, users can choose to increase, decrease or completely shut off the flow of water.
With interchangeable nozzles, the LG CordZeroThinQ A9 can be switched from vacuum to mop and back again. Its Power Drive Nozzle removes dust from carpets and hard floors via suction, thanks to LG's Smart Inverter Motor. This same motor also delivers great mopping results when used with the Power Drive Mop attachment. One-touch controls, two quick-change battery packs and removable, washable filters elevate the effectiveness of this dual-function appliance. An included multi-type charging stand offers both recharging and space-efficient storage for both the vacuum and accessories. For owners of the original CordZeroThinQ A9, there is being made available a Power Drive Mop upgrade kit, which includes the nozzle and mop pads.
The LG CordZeroThinQ Robotic Mop automatic floor cleaner features power drive dual spin mops enhanced with Dual Eye technology. With its front-mounted Dual Eye camera, the CordZeroThinQ Robotic Mop can detect and recognize its surroundings to avoid collisions with household furniture and pets. By accessing MyZone using the LG ThinQ app, users can designate which areas of the house to clean.
