Vileda Virobi Robotic Duster £20 @B&Q instore and online (wont let me enter the URL)
loads on pallet, this was in Widnes, might be national.

The unit can pick up a fair amount of very small dirt particles and fluff such as pet hair on hard floor surfaces such as laminate, tiles, marble and linoleum, but its inability to pick up anything larger than the finest dirt particles makes the Virobi Robotic Mop little more than a mildly entertaining toy for your pet or toddler.

Here's what it can and can't do:

Can't deal with wet surfaces.
Can run for two hours before a recharge.
Can tumble down the stairs.
Can pick up pet hair and fine dirt.
Can't pick up anything coarser than fine dirt, such as toast crumbs.
Can comfortably handle sharp corners and turns, working in a random pattern.
At only 7cm high, the robot can clean under most furniture, along walls and close to corner edges.
The robot is fairly quiet.

still a deal as cheaper than most.

paid £15 for mine at b&q just remember to get plenty pads for them if on offer .. got 2 packs for £5 at b&q there nearly £10 a pack on amazon

No sign of it on the website as far as I can see.

They apparently have the dusting pads for £2 for 20 which is a bargain but that's if you can find them anywhere. Stock check didn't show any for me.

I got one for £15 last time but to be honest the price of the pads means it hasn't been used for a while

I have one of these and tried using it on a wooden floor. It is absolutely rubbish; it regularly gets stuck in one place on the floor and also does not seem to pick up any dirt/hair. Avoid.

These are cheap and nasty. Useless at cleaning and will get stuck. We got ours for free (left behind from somebody who rented our house) and it's good for 5 minutes of fun watching the dogs chase/run away from it but it's useless. **not voted**

Local b and q didn't have any pads and Cheapest I've managed to find them online is on eBay 100 for £19.99 ( 5 packs of 20) in case anyone else is looking .

I'm going to invest in a small mop and bucket....then pay my 6yr old 20p a day to do the floors. Job gets done, kid learns cleanliness is next to godliness.

I'll pay them 21p to do my floors. How much do they charge to clean the toilet?

Do these come with a mains adaptor? Because the (now £60) vacuum one doesn't...

actually to be honest its not that bad, if you think your floors are clean then try one of these and you will be surprised what it picks up, in fact shocked. Ok not going to pick up big crumbs but the likes of dust and hair it does really well which is what it is for. Great for cleaning under beds and under the couch and if you have dust allergies then this would be ok. The only thing worth mentioning is it struggles on thresholds and stops so close your door prior to using and move the likes of slippers.
