The Narwal T10 was praised by testers for its excellent battery performance and impressive mop and vacuuming ability.

However, they felt that its lack of a brush roll made it a non-starter for carpet cleaning and that its lack of a scheduling option would disadvantage some customers. Also disappointing was its small dirt compartment.

Product Snapshot

Overview

The Narwal T10 is a premium robot vacuum that was announced in 2022. According to the manufacturer, it’ll only use about 0.47 liters of water to clean a room up to 224 square feet, and with triangular mop pads that rotate up to three times per second, its efficiency rivals some of the best vacuum cleaners in the market.

Similar to many highly rated robot vacuums, the T10 ships with an anti-allergy HEPA filter that filters out up to 99.99% of allergens. Its lack of a brush roll means there’s very little chance of hairs getting tangled during cleaning, and with a large water tank capacity of up to 5 liters on its base station, it is ideal for big rooms.

It also has a suction power rating of 1800Pa and can be controlled through an app. Lastly, since its 0.4-liter dirt capacity is not as large as the 0.7-liter dirt bin on the Naeto D8, the T10 might require more frequent emptying.

Consensus

our Verdict

Reviewers hailed the Narwal T10 for its ability to switch between mopping and vacuuming and impressive battery performance. E

xpert testers from Tech Radar were happy that the T10 could run for up to three hours since it didn’t need to recharge when they tested it by cleaning their 600 sq ft apartment.

They also appreciated that the T10 could mop and vacuum, as these are missing features on the iRobot Roomba S9. Reviewers also liked that at 63 decibels, it does not get as loud as the Milwaukee M18 Backpack vacuum, which has a noise output of up to 76 decibels.

While experts from Modern Castle scored it at 100% for its vacuuming and mopping performance on hardwoods, they were not as impressed with how it handled low and high pile carpets during their tests, scoring it at 45% efficiency.

They noted that this poor performance was due to its lack of a brush roll. They also didn’t like that despite having app control, there was no option to set up scheduled cleaning.

With a 172-minute battery life, the Narwal T10 does not last as long as the Roborock S7, which can keep cleaning for up to 204 minutes. However, the T10 has a shorter charging time of 112 minutes compared to the S7, which can take up to 246 minutes to charge.

The Narwal T10 charges much faster than the Ecovacs DEEBOT OZMO T8 since it takes only 112 minutes compared to the Ecovacs, which takes up to 370 minutes. However, the T8 can vacuum and mop simultaneously while the T10 cannot, and the T8 also has a longer battery life of up to 291 minutes, which is much longer than the T10 since it only manages 172 minutes.
