Answer: Mine charges about a hour and half

Does this go onto area rugs? I’m choosing between this or vbot or pyle?

Question: Is it loud? And does it beep? If yes, can the beep be turned off?
Answer: You can hear it but I do not consider it loud, maybe if it is under your feet. There is no beep. I am thrilled with it, did not want one that had a dock. I bought this for one for myself & my daughter & she loves hers also. It will stop when it needs to be cleaned out. For the price it is great!
Question: Can I rinse the filter screen?
Question: Should it randomly shut off after some time when not needing a charge?
