Overall Impression

Homeowners who have a lot of hard surface flooring in their home know the struggle of trying to keep these floors clean. The iRobot Braava 380T is a mopping robot that can help with this chore. Overall, the 380T does an excellent job of sweeping up dust and other particles and mopping your floors.

Cleaning Ability

The Braava 380T was specifically designed to clean any type of hard surface floor.

It is not a vacuum, but rather a wet and dry mop.

It only has 3 buttons: power button, a dry sweep button, and a damp mop button.

The cleaner uses reusable microfiber cleaning cloths for each function. These cloths trap dirt and other debris from your floors.

There are no special cleaning solutions/liquids required.


The Braava 380 uses the NorthStar navigation system, which makes use of a NorthStar cube to center its cleaning path.

The NorthStar cube is placed in the center of the room and activated before turning the robot on. This helps guide the robot around the room.

When the robot is in dry mop mode, it will move in straight lines to pick up dust and hair.

In damp mode, a back-and-forth mopping motion is used to grab ground-in dirt and grime.

You can wet the cloth or fill up the reservoir included.

Automation and Scheduling

The iRobot Braava 380T does not have a scheduling feature. It must be manually activated and shut off.

What it Misses

As mentioned, the Braava 380t does not have a scheduling feature.

In addition, it does not self dock when the battery runs low.


The iRobot Braava 380t mopping robot is easy to use and easy to maintain.

Once you have used the machine, simply remove the microfiber cloth and throw it in the washing machine to clean it.
