for a long period of time, in order to protect the battery.
Turning on from Stand By power.
When the Roboking 2.0 is not at the Home Station, and is in the
Stand by mode, press the ‘START/STOP’ button for more than
1 second. The Roboking 2.0 will be turned on and a melody will
be sounded.
※ Roboking 2.0 will automatically return to the home station to
recharge when the charge is low during operation, or if left idle
with no cleaning command for more than 10 minutes.
※ Do not operate Roboking 2.0 on tables or desks. It will result in
an injury or damage to the product when it starts to search for
the home station after 10 minutes.

- Turn on the power switch if off, and wait for more than 3 seconds.
- Press the ‘START/STOP’ button when the power switch is turned on.
- If the power is not turned on or if there is no display but only the “Ting” sound, put
the Roboking 2.0 on the home station.
- If there is no change even when Roboking 2.0 is attached to the home station, press
the reset switch located on the rear side of the home station for 3 seconds while the
Roboking 2.0 is attached on the home station.
HOW TO START AND STOP CLEANING
Using the buttons on the Roboking 2.0
After the Roboking 2.0 is turned on, press the START/STOP button
to begin cleaning. A melody will sound and cleaning will begin.
Press the START/STOP button during the cleaning cycle to stop
cleaning.
※ When the ‘START/STOP’ button is pressed while the power supply
of the Roboking 2.0 is turned off, the power will be turned on. Press

the power is off, press the ‘START/STOP’ button on the upper side
of Roboking 2.0 to turn the power on and to allow the remote to be
used.
※ During cleaning, collisions can happen when the sensor cannot detect objects because of their shape (Thin
chair and table leg, furniture corner). When this happens, the internal impact detecting sensor will avoid
the obstacles by using a backward motion.
※ If the Roboking 2.0 is set to start cleaning at a location away from the home station, put the device on
a flat floor in order to prevent a malfunction of the obstacle detecting sensor. In addition, start cleaning
from a location where there are not any obstacles such as curtains or walls within 30 cm (11.8 in) of the
Roboking 2.0.
Tip
For best results:
•B
riefly scan the area to be cleaned for big and small objects that will cause difficulty for the
Roboking 2.0.
• If cleaning is started when the Roboking 2.0 is at the home station, the device can rapidly be
returned to the home station as the current home position has been accurately read.
• For the safety of the Roboking 2.0, a step height of more than 10mm (0.4 in) cannot be
crossed.
• When then mop plate is fitted, the Roboking 2.0 cannot go over door sills or step treads that
are higher than 5mm.
15
HOW TO CHARGE THE BATTERY
Automatic charging
The Roboking 2.0 returns to the home station at the
end of a cleaning cycle or when its battery is running low.
※ When cleaning is started from the Home-station, Roboking 2.0 will
show better performance in automatic recharge.
(Even in the wide area where the Robot vacuum cleaner cannot see
the signal from Home-station, the Robot will remember the location
if the cleaning is started from the station.
※ In the event that the unit returns to the Home Station due to a low
battery, cleaning will be started, after the charging, from the nearest
place of the area which has not been cleaned before. (Page 17)
※ If Roboking 2.0 is unable to dock to the home station on its first
attempt, it will try again until it docks successfully.
※ When Roboking 2.0 completed all areas that it can clean, it will return to the home station even when the
battery level is not low.
※ Roboking 2.0 will automatically return to the home station to recharge when it's left uncharged or without
cleaning order for more than 10 minutes.
※ Do not operate Roboking 2.0 on tables or desks. It may result in an injury or damage to the product when
it starts to search for home station after 10 minutes.
Be sure to turn the power off when placing Roboking 2.0 on high furniture.
Manual charging
If using the Roboking 2.0 for the first time or when charging the battery during cleaning, you can manually
charge the battery.
Method 1. Attach the Roboking 2.0 to the home station
by aligning to the front side of the home
station. A melody sound will be generated
along with an audio message to start
charging.
※ If an audio message saying “Turn on the
main power switch on the bottom of the
unit” is generated repeatedly when the
Roboking 2.0 is attached to the home
station, please check the power switch
and turn it on.
Method 2. When the HOMING button of the remote
control or the Roboking 2.0 is pressed, the
charge process will start by announcing the
search for the Home Station and will then
attempt to return to it for charging.
※ If the Roboking commenced cleaning whilst away from the home station, and then the Homing button is
pressed from either the remote or the unit, it may take slightly longer to find the home station.
※ If the Roboking 2.0 stays within 10 cm (3.9 in) of the front of the charging terminal while the power supply
is turned on, it will automatically be returned to the home station and charging will begin.
Tip
16
Take the following precautions when using the home station:
• If foreign material is covering the charging terminal, charging may not proceed smoothly.
Wipe the terminal from time to time with a dry cloth after the power plug is disconnected.
• To prevent electric shock, do not touch the charging terminal with any metallic objects.
• To avoid fire or electric shock, never disassemble or modify the home station.
• Do not to place the home station or power plug near to a heating appliance.
