Typically, Tineco’s vacuum cleaners are long-range and can last for decades. Therefore, they are best suited to large areas like big apartments and living spaces.
This smart sensor adjusts the suction power of the vacuum cleaner, depending on how much dust is on a particular surface of cleaning. Thorough, efficient, and effective cleaning is where it’s at right now. iLoop dust sensors are the next big thing in the efforts towards smarter and better vacuum cleaners.
The Tineco vacuum cleaner has two unique brushes which translate to twice the cleaning and half the time spent on chores. The brushes are faster as they implement an inbuilt high torque motor meaning they can clean all those hard to reach crevices. It is worth mentioning that all these brushes are detachable hence allowing for easy switching and replacing of the brushes.
There’s a crevice brush that is especially suited to this purpose of cleaning between tight spaces where standard brushes would not reach.

The soft roller brush is also available for use when cleaning smooth surfaces, which are fibers, carpets, cushions, or mats. This brush takes care not to lift threads off of the surface being cleaned, reducing wear and tear of such surfaces. It is thorough yet gentle on surfaces. It is also useful in picking up fine dirt particles from surfaces in the home.
The hard power brush is tailored to take care of hard surfaces, for example, wooden floors. Standard brushes would do the job but would be worn off quickly. This brush lasts for longer, cleaning hard surfaces.
The Tineco S12 lasts longer than its predecessors and is powered by two strong 2500 mAh each Li-Ion batteries. These last for up to over 1.5h or 100 minutes of work done. With two batteries, you are assured of the uninterrupted cleaning experience with longer battery life.
The charging system can charge both batteries simultaneously and is a wall-mounted dock. Not only does the wall-mounted dock charge the batteries, but it also saves floor space as it is a storage location for the vacuum and accessories.
Switching between manual and auto just got more comfortable with a multi-touch keypad at the handle. Such a keyboard has reduced the hustle of pressing buttons each time you want to switch between the modes. In addition to this, the power adjustment of the vacuum cleaner is also made simpler with the power control slider. This makes for a more accurate and precise setting on the vacuum cleaner.

With Auto mode, it is easier to control the vacuum since it adjusts itself depending on the surfaces in which it is cleaning. If continual re-adjusting of the device is a nuisance to you, artificial intelligence will come into play by making the vacuum cleaner operate on auto.

We’re talking about battery life, connectivity, runtime, modes, brush roller status, dust sensors, air channels, and power. All of these at your fingertips, literally.

The massive contrast between the dark background and bright words, make the screen easy to read even in dim lighting. The display on the vacuum gives a real-time update of what is going on in the machine and how this may affect cleaning.
Tineco has developed a smartphone app that is the best thing to happen to home cleaning, well except for the device itself. The App sends updates, notifies you of malfunctions, and tells you if there’s any malfunction in the equipment.
The Tineco App is available for download and is relatively simple to use. It will work in the background, thus meaning zero disturbances because of notifications. Integrating the app with the device is seamless, and they would work together to improve your experience with the device.
Traditionally, vacuum cleaners have been synonymous with noise pollution during cleaning. However, this is not the case anymore. Implementing a new Ultra-quiet mode, the cleaning process has become baby and pet friendly, cutting out the hum and buzz of traditional vacuum cleaners.
A person could sleep to the low whisper sound of the Tineco S12 vacuum. That’s just how quiet it is.
Smart suction control is made possible by the incorporation of a capacitive touchscreen, which allows for easy setting of the suction power of the device. The capacitive touchscreen has redefined how people operate their vacuums. Everything has been put together in the simple to use screen. A swipe of a finger is all it takes.
The Tineco Pure One S12 comes equipped with a self-cleaning filter feature, which means the filters are cleaned on the go. The filters do not need to stay dirty, thanks to smart filter self-cleaning. They stay clean, and so do surfaces in the home, making for a less interrupted experience.

It is now easier to clean high places, for example, ceilings or tall cabinets with the handheld mode. The Tineco S12 is a very light machine that allows for it to be handheld and even transported easily. It is also easy to switch it to handheld mode with a few minor adjustments.
The Tineco Pure One S12 is best suited for both soft and hard surfaces, for example, carpets and hardwood floors. It performs well in terms of total usage time, which is relatively long.
Concluding our Tineco Pure One S12 review, it is worth noting once again that this brand offers a wide range of smart vacuum cleaners and has proven itself to be a force to be reckoned with in matters of cleaning appliances.
