Even though Shark is mainly known for its upright and convertible canister vacuum cleaners, don’t sleep on the company’s lineup of robotic vacuum cleaners. Today, we’re looking at the ION AV752, Shark’s low-end robot for budget-conscious shoppers. Please read our review to see whether the AV752 is the right fit for your floors.
The AV752 uses three brushes—one main brush and two side brushes—to loosen and draw in dirt from every side. The multi-surface brush roll works exceptionally well on smooth floors and reasonably well on carpets.
Customers claim that it takes the AV752 multiple passes to pick up rice-sized debris from low-pile carpets, so one or two cycles is all it takes to have spotless floors.
The triple-action brush combined with powerful suction makes the AV752 more than capable of removing embedded pet hair from carpets.
However, hair does tend to wrap around the edge of the brush roll (not uncommon in robots, even in higher-end models). A quick snip with a pair of scissors should get all of the hair out.
Built with a 2,600-mAh battery, the AV752 is able to run for 120 consecutive minutes in between charges. Based on user reports, this is enough time to clean over 2,000 square feet of floors before it makes a beeline back to its charging dock.
As a super-affordable robotic vacuum cleaner, you’re not going to get an auto-resume function. So, when you command it to clean after recharging, it starts its vacuuming cycle from the beginning.
If you want to send commands to your AV752 from across town, you can do so by downloading the SharkClean smartphone app and connecting your robot to your home’s internet.
The SharkClean app lets you program cleaning schedules; tell the robot when to stop, start, and recharge; and even send voice prompts via Alexa or Assistant. Fortunately, the AV752 works without an internet connection, as well.
The AV752 isn’t fitted with a top-tier filter. Instead, it comes with a standard filter that traps larger particles from escaping the dustbin. We wouldn’t expect much more from such an affordable robot, so if you want a vacuum cleaner to help deal with pet and seasonal allergies, you might need to look elsewhere.
One thing that users will need to be aware of is the slightly limited capacity of the dustbin. At most, the AV752 can store as much as 0.45 quarts of debris.
The filling time depends on how dirty your floors are, but on average, customers claim that they need to empty it out every two cycles. You’ll receive an alert via the SharkClean app if the robot’s dustbin has reached max capacity.

Somewhat Iffy Navigation
Since the Shark AV752 doesn’t come with high-tech navigation software, it patrols your home in a somewhat random fashion.
Given enough time, this robot vacuum should be able to clear an entire floor in one or two charges. However, some users have complained about their AV752 misidentifying carpets as obstacles.
