Video Review: eufy WetVac W31 Wet Dry Vacuum Cleaner

Published

on

Wet dry vacuum cleaners are all the craze today. Traditional vacuum cleaners are so passé when you consider these wet dry vacuum cleaners that can not only sweep but also mop your floor at the same time, without much hassle. eufy, which is a part of Anker Innovations is the latest entrant in the wet dry vacuum cleaner market. And the company sent us its first device, the eufy WetVac W31 for a test drive. How did it perform? Well, check out the video below, and read the review to find out!

The WetVac W31 comes packed neatly in a box with everything you will need to get started with it. Now this includes the main body of the W31, the handlebar, the floor cleaning solution, the cleaning tool, and the charging base. Installing these pieces together is quite easy. Insert the handlebar into the main body of the W31 and you will hear a click to let you know that the installation was successful.

Next, charge the W31 – in order to do that, place the charging base against a wall. Put the main body of the W31 into the charging station, making sure you align the charging port. The LED display on the W31 would then light up to let you know that the device is charging.

In order to start using the W31, remove the water tank and fill the water tank with clean water and two bottle caps of the floor cleaning solution. Now, reinstall the tank by sliding it into place, ensuring it is secured in position. Now place the W31 on the floor, gently step on the foot pedal and push the handlebar backwards.

For a comfortable experience, keep the main body of the device at a 35-40 degree angle to the ground. Press the power button on the handlebar to operate the device and start moving forward to clean the floor.

If the floor has a harder stain stuck to it, you would need to pass over it multiple times, and use the water spray button under the handlebar to clean it entirely. The WetVac W31 also works on carpets – so that’s an added bonus. And when the vacuum cleaner is in an upright position, the W31 will enter into standby mode. After 2 minutes of standby mode, it will automatically shut down to conserve battery.

One of the stand-out features of the eufy WetVac W31 is its ability to self-clean. In order to do that, press the self-cleaning button when the W31 is charging. The device will then start self-cleaning and drying the rolling brush automatically. However, before using the self-cleaning feature, make sure the clean water level is over 50%, the battery level is over 30%, the dirty water tank is installed, and the roller brush cover is closed.

Maintaining the W31 is also quite simple. To clean the roller brush, first, remove the brush guard. To remove the roller brush, pinch the small bracket on the left side and lift it up. Use the cleaning tool to remove any debris and hair from the roller brush. Next, insert the right side of the roller brush into the connector and then secure the left side in place. And then, reinstall the brush cover.

Cleaning the house using the eufy WetVac W31 is effortless. The device is quite lightweight when compared with similar class vacuum cleaners out there on the market. During this review, I cleaned an entire 2 bedroom apartment and I was still left with about 49% of battery which is brilliant. Once your cleaning is done, you need to empty out and clean the dirty water tank which is quite straightforward.

If the dirty water tank requires emptying in between a cleaning session, the W31 will alert you. At the end of my cleaning marathon, the W31 was able to pull in every bit of cat hair, belonging to our cat Oreo.

And once you are done cleaning the dirty water tank, it’s time to recharge the W31. Plug in the charging station and slide the W31 in, making sure the charging points are in contact. Once you switch on the device, it will tell you that it is charging and it’s time for self-cleaning. Just press the self-cleaning button under the handlebar and the device starts self-cleaning the roller and drying it.

You might wonder if such a feature-packed wet dry vacuum cleaner would cost you an arm and a leg. Well, not exactly. The eufy WetVac W31 Wet Dry Vacuum Cleaner is now available at a price of AED 1999. For this price, eufy also throws in its RoboVac 25C Max for free. Now, that’s an offer you cannot resist.

Overall, the eufy WetVac W31 Wet Dry Vacuum Cleaner was a charm to use. It works as advertised and it keeps your house clean with minimal effort. And eufy hits the sweet spot in terms of pricing. The eufy WetVac W31 Wet Dry Vacuum Cleaner thus walks away with the Gadget Voize Editors’ Choice award for being feature-rich and pocket-friendly.

Price: AED 1999 (with free RoboVac 25C Max)

Sony Launches FE 24-50mm F2.8 G, a Compact, Large Aperture F2.8 G Lens with High-Performance Optics

Published

on

Sony Middle East and Africa has announced the release of its new compact 35mm full-frame compatible α (Alpha) E-mount lens, FE 24-50mm F2.8 G (product name SEL2450G) standard zoom with F2.8 maximum aperture over the entire zoom range. Despite its small and lightweight body, it achieves the high-resolution performance and beautiful bokeh that can be expected from a large aperture G Lens with F2.8. It covers a focal length of 24 mm to 50 mm, allowing you to capture everything from still images such as everyday snapshots, and portraits to video shooting, all in high quality but with a design that will easily fit in the smallest of kit bags.

With the latest optical and mechanical design, the dimensions have been kept compact with a filter diameter of φ67 mm, maximum diameter of 74.8 mm, length of 92.3 mm, and weight of approximately 440 g. Sharp and detailed images at all focal lengths are achieved thanks to the arrangement of four aspherical lenses and two pieces of ED (Extra-low Dispersion) glass, so that aberrations such as chromatic aberration, are reduced, achieving high-resolution performance from the centre to the corner. FE 24-50mm F2.8 G uses an 11-blade circular aperture which together with the optimisation of spherical aberration provides the beautiful, soft and smooth bokeh that is characteristic of the G Lens series. It has a minimum shooting distance of 0.19 m (AF) at the wide end and a maximum magnification of 0.30 x (AF) offering high-quality close-up shooting.

The quality is evident through the AF (auto focus) whereby, equipped with two linear motors, it achieves high speed, high precision, high tracking, and quiet focusing. It also supports high-speed continuous shooting with AF/AE tracking of up to 120 frames per second for the full-frame mirrorless camera Alpha 9 III. For those wanting a solid video performance, AF tracking is available for high frame rate 4K 120p or FHD 240p movie recording where critical focus control is required, plus it supports in-body Active Mode image stabilisation for steady shooting while walking. It is also compatible with the focus breathing compensation on camera bodies, allowing for high-quality video expression.

Intuitive manual focus is achieved thanks to the adoption of linear response MF which allows smooth and superior image expression. FE 24-50mm F2.8 G is equipped with user-friendly functions such as a customisable focus hold button, aperture ring, aperture click ON/OFF switch, and focus mode switch, offering high operability and comprehensive control. Plus, for further ease of use, they are designed to be dust and moisture-proof with a fluorine coating which prevents dirt from sticking to the front surface of the lens.

 The new FE 24-50mm F2.8 G will be available in the region from Q2 2024.

HONOR Says its Eye-Tracking Features Can Move a Car

Published

on

HONOR has introduced an AI-powered eye-tracking feature that can move a car without a driver inside. This experiment, demonstrated by an automotive engineer, uses the eye-tracking feature of the HONOR Magic6 Pro to control a car based on the user’s eye movement.

A video by Autocar, available on YouTube, showcases this innovative technology. The HONOR Magic6 Pro is equipped with four commands that can be activated by eye gaze, allowing the car to start the engine, turn it off, and move forward or backwards. After focusing on a specific button for 2-3 seconds, the corresponding command is activated, and the car responds accordingly.

HONOR says that this demonstration is a testament to the company’s belief that AI can transform the way humans interact with devices in the future. HONOR has announced that its MWC Launch Event will be on February 25th. HONOR will also host an AI Panel with industry partners such as Qualcomm to unveil more discoveries about the future of AI. This event will take place on February 26th at 17:00 (CET) at MWC 2024. Find out more at this link: https://www.hihonor.com/ae-en/events/honor-mwc/
