Eufy RoboVac 35C

Improved!

The Eufy RoboVac 35C is the newest release from the company that won’t cost you a fortune but will deliver amazing performance. To lower its price a bit, the vac was designed using a plastic top instead of a glass one and has four control buttons instead of one. In other respects, however, it hasn't changed much.

The cleaner, just like its previous version, can be connected to your home Wi-Fi network and operated remotely using your phone or tablet. The only thing you need to do is download the Eufy app, which is available for free and compatible with both iOS and Android systems.

Besides that, the vac is compatible with Amazon Alexa and the Google Assistant voice services, which means you can control the item not only with your gadget but also with your voice. Even if the vac is out of sight, using the settings you can send it to the charging base or program it to clean your living room, for example.

The next thing we like about the Eufy 35С RoboMac is its battery life. On a single run, it gets 90-100 minutes which should be more than enough to clean quite a big space. And, like it is often the case with robotic vacs, you have an option to set boundary strips, so you can program the vac to clean only those areas that require cleaning and avoid all others, a handy option for homes with pets.

Review of Eufy RoboVac 35C Robotic Vacuum Cleaner

Boost of Power

The other strength of the Eufy 35C is quiet performance, which is surprising given its power. Speaking of which, the vac certainly delivers where other models fail. With 1500 Pa suction power and 3-point cleaning system, it's capable of combating all types of dirt. And if extra vacuuming strength is required, the vac offers the BoostIQ technology enabling you to increase its suction power within 1.5 seconds. Not only does the Eufy 35C remove dust and dirt but also it effectively eradicates bacteria and allergens lurking in the air. All dust that it captures goes through two filters - a dual-layer and high-performance ones - which leads to a cleaner and healthier environment.

To avoid collisions with furniture and falling of the stairs, the RoboVac is designed with several infrared sensors which upon noticing any odd object make the vac change the route. And if the vac somehow gets stuck or lost, you can just tap the Find My Robot button in the EufyHome app and it will emit a sound signal, letting you know where you can find it.

So, if you're in the market for a smart and effective robot cleaner, get the Eufy BoostIQ RoboVac. It is less expensive than most of the competition, it performs well both on carpets and hard floors, and it has one of the most capacious batteries giving it enough charge to clean pretty large spaces.

Eufy RoboVac 15C

The Golden Mean

Eufy has a decent range of models varying from really expensive vacs to some more than reasonably priced ones. The Eufy RoboVac 15C is the golden mean. It offers decent performance and the same smart features found in the premium Eufy robots.

With 1300 Pa power, this little unit will definitely not replace a regular, full-size vacuum but will do a good job picking up main debris from the floors. It effectively removes pet hair and litter, dust, food crumbs, minor spills, and other dirt that can end up on your floors.

If there are some transitions from hard floors to carpets, you can be sure this little guy will trundle along without any issues. Also, it tackles most rugs on the floors with ease.

Running in the edge setting, the vac shows good results in sticking to the outside edges and getting the bits of dust and hair. By the way, the unit is quiet on any setting, hence, you won't even notice it is working.

You do have to clean out the dirt after each sweep through, as the container gets full fairly quickly. But it's very easy to remove and empty. Cleaning the filters is a little trickier.

Review of Eufy RoboVac 15C Robotic Vacuum Cleaner

Smart Intergation

You can connect the vac in a few ways - using the remote, Alexa, or phone app. The most handy option, in our opinion, is the EufyHome app. Once you download it, all you need to do is plug in the vac’s dock, set the vac on its charging pins, and add it to the app. The app will find the cleaner immediately and guide you through the easy process of connecting it to your Wi-Fi network.

As soon as the vac is paired, you can start cleaning. You have the option of selecting between four cleaning modes including quick Single Room mode, Edge mode, Spot Cleaning mode, and Auto mode. Also, the vac can sweep at three different strengths - standard, Boost IQ, and Max.

The app allows users to schedule the vacuum, choose a preferred mode, set specific days of the week and times when you want it to start cleaning.

There's also a steering feature in the app, which looks much like the way you control a robot toy. It lets you move the vacuum left, right, back, and forward. You can turn to this option when you want to get the RoboVac 30C back to its charger, for example. However, it's always easier to send it home through the command.

As mentioned, the Eufy 15 robot also works with the voice assistants, Amazon Alexa and Google Home. So, if you live in a smart home, you can verbally start the robot without going into the app or manually activating it via remote.

All this makes the vac a good choice for those who need a cleaner that links into digital assistants. With this little helper, you don’t need to do much while still keeping your home clean. It'll easily collect small, crumb-type bits from your floors.

Eufy RoboVac 11S

Extremely Slim

The RoboVac 11S is one of the slimmest robotic vacuums on the market today. It’s only 2.85" tall and can vacuum under low-hanging furniture and other hard-to-reach spots where pet hair is likely to lurk. It easily squeezes under beds, wardrobes, armchairs, or floor-standing cabinets to remove all dirt, dust, crumbs, and hair that have been stuck there. And owing to upgraded wheels, this compact vac can easily climb thresholds up to 0.63-inch high. The vac is great for cleaning low- to medium-pile carpets, hardwood bare floors, laminate, and tile. However, it's not the best option for high-pile carpets.

Although the RoboVac 11S is super-slim, it’s still packed with numerous notable functions. It features a 3-point cleaning system (rolling brush, two side brushes, and super powerful suction) to deliver a thorough cleanup. Also, it boasts 100 minutes of continuous runtime per one charge. So, you can be sure that this mighty one will be able to clean your whole home after a single charge. By the way, the vacuum automatically returns to its charging base once the power is low. The vac has a large 0.6 L dustbox that holds a decent amount of dirt, thus reducing the frequency of emptying.

Another advantage of this model is its super-quiet operation. It produces just 55dB (the equivalent volume of conversational speech), so its operation won't drive your pets crazy. Other highlights of the RoboVac 11S cleaner include a premium design with an anti-scratch tempered glass cover, which ensures extra protection, and the drop-sensing technology, which prevents the vac from falling down the stairs. Also, it has an infrared sensor that helps it avoid obstacles. Overall, if you need a highly functional cleaner for pet hair removal, it’s a suitable choice. It can reach all those hard-to-get spots where other models usually fail.

Review of Eufy RoboVac 11S Robotic Vacuum Cleaner

Smart BoostIQ™ Technology

Another highlight of this robot is BoostIQ™ Technology of the second generation. The vacuum can automatically increase the suction power up to enormous 1300 Pa within just 1.5 seconds when extra strength is needed. This function may be extremely useful when cleaning some especially dirty spots. The only slight downside is that when increasing the suction power, the operating time of the appliance will decrease a bit. So, take this into account and be sure to use the Power Boost mode rationally. We recommend switching to this mode only when you need to remove extremely stubborn dirt.

Eufy RoboVac 12

Step Up from 11

The RoboVac 12 is a frills-free model that falls into the budget category but does its main job perfectly. Actually, it's the latest upgrade from the most popular Eufy robot, RoboVac 11. For sure, this vacuum boasts some great improvements in most areas.

To begin with, the RoboVac 12 has more suction than the previous model (1500Pa vs 1300Pa). Beyond that, you get the opportunity to set this Eufy to its maximum setting, and it will remember it the next time it turns on. The older 11 vac would come back to standard suction every time.

Yet, the increase in suction influenced the runtime. Whereas the 11 model would run for 90 minutes, this model runs for 45 minutes if set to max suction.

On the positive side, the upgraded robot has much better sensors now. It's apt to avoid collisions with an obstacle or wall. Also, the new model is lower in height, which prevents it from getting stuck under the furniture, where the previous vac usually failed. Plus, it's generally quieter.

Speaking about the main concern, cleaning abilities, the RoboVac 12 performs much better. It picks up even more crap than the previous model.

Other improvements include the way the dustbin inserts, the way the front brushes are attached/detached, and the easier removal of the main brush for cleaning.

However, some things haven't changed much. There's still no Wi-Fi connectivity, virtual walls, day-specific scheduling, and smart speaker integration. But if you want those extras, there are pricer Eufy models out there.

Review of Eufy RoboVac 12 Robotic Vacuum Cleaner

Easy Maintenance

The RoboVac 12 requires low maintenance and comes with extra filters, side brushes, and a cleaning tool. The said tool is great for removing wound hair from the brushroll and cleaning the side brushes. To keep the vac in top-notch condition, the manufacturer recommends cleaning the rolling brush once a week and side brushes once a month. Also, it's advisable to clean the filters once a week and a brush guard every 3-6 months.

All the parts are easy to detach for cleaning. Take note that you can wash the pre-filter and foam filter with water and air-dry them thoroughly before reassembling. But the high-performance filter mustn't be rinsed with water.

The rolling brush can be cleaned with the provided cleaning tool or a vacuum cleaner, while side brushes require just a damp cloth.

Last but not least, you also get five cable ties in the package that can be used for neat storage of cords and wires.

Summing up, the RoboVac 12 is a decent cleaner without bells and whistles to pay extra money for. It's unpretentious in use and maintenance. Perfect for those who value practicality and simplicity.

What Is an Eufy Robotic Vacuum Cleaner?

Eufy is a famous Chinese brand born from Anker, a company renowned for manufacturing innovative electronics that empower life on-the-go. With the motto of “Smart Home Simplified”, Eufy creates products aimed to make your everyday life simpler and a bit more high-tech.

Eufy RoboVacs are easy-to-use smart home devices that can really enhance your life. Each of the products has been designed and refined solely by the Eufy professional team. Throughout the years, Eufy engineers have tested thousands of products, analyzed their results, and applied knowledge to bring RoboVacs to perfection.

It wouldn't be an exaggeration to say that Eufy robotic vacuums are one of the most advanced and effective in the industry. They deftly combine smart technologies with innovative design to deliver exceptional cleaning results and make homes happier.

We have picked the top-selling Eufy robots for this review that can cater to any cleaning need and budget. However, if you still feel that you've not been covered, you can look through our multi-brand selection of robotic vacuums.

What Features to Compare

Smart Functionality

Like with most other robotic vacuums, the first thing you need to pay attention to when choosing a Eufy cleaner is its intelligence. By intelligence we mean the sensors and navigation technology used.

In a word, the more sophisticated technologies are used, the more intelligently the robotic vacuum will clean. It'll create the most efficient cleaning path in the shortest time possible and will follow it afterward. Basically, Eufy cleaners use the following cleaning paths: Auto cleaning, Edge cleaning, Spot cleaning, Single-room cleaning.

Single Room is quite self-explanatory. You put a vac in the room with the door shut to let it vacuum the room intensively for 30 minutes. The vac automatically detects the objects and avoids them.

In Edge mode, the vacuum detects walls only and cleans along them at reduced speed for 20 minutes.

Spot Cleaning mode makes the vac tackle concentrated dirt by cleaning it in a spiral pattern for 2 minutes.

In Auto mode, the robot automatically chooses the best mode or mix of the modes to get the job done.

For avoiding obstacles and to prevent falls, the manufacturer has stuffed the vacs with some advanced technologies. The drop-sensing technology prevents the vacs from falling down the stairs and off the ledges, while dual-hall sensors can detect boundary strips to ensure your RoboVac cleans only the areas you want (found in high-end Eufy models).

One more feature to consider here is the smart functionality. Top-tier Eufy robotic vacuums are usually featured with built-in Wi-Fi modules and can be paired with different smart devices. The models compatible with Amazon Alexa and the Google Assistant voice control services, for example, will let you accomplish the vacuuming needs with zero effort from you. And the special EufyHome app will allow you to give commands from your smartphone or tablet wherever you are. The same app makes it possible to schedule the vacuum to clean your house for a week ahead.

Performance

Also, don't neglect such aspects as the suction power of the unit and the battery capacity. Naturally, more powerful Eufy vacs provide better cleaning results. However, extra power usually yields more battery, which results in reduced cleaning time. But we can't even call that a con, since all Eufy robots automatically return to the base, re-charge, and resume their work.

It's worth emphasizing that all Eufy vacs use proprietary 3-point cleaning system, meaning each vac combines one rolling rush and two side brushes. In the first stage, two swivel side brushes sweep the dirt into the main brush that picks it up. In the final stage, the motor delivers strong suction power to put the collected dirt in the bin. This way, no dust will be left along wall edges or the vac’s path.

Extras

Finally, pay attention to the extras Eufy robotic vacs offer. Some models come with boundary strips allowing you to set limits. With their help, you can set borders along the pet feeder, for instance.

Another useful feature for pet owners would be a good filtration system that can trap even the smallest dust particles and allergens. Also, consider the package of the vac. It's nice if it comes with cleaning brushes for easy maintenance and some additional replacement parts.

Did you know?

Eufy is not Eufy?

Actually, Eufy is just a subdivision from a Chinese brand, Anker, based in Shenzhen, Guangdong. The company is known for producing not only smart robotic cleaners but also the computer and mobile peripherals, other smart home appliances, and car accessories.

What is notable, Anker was the leading brand of mobile chargers on Amazon.com in 2015. The charging devices from this brand use the proprietary "PowerIQ" technology which helps them to automatically optimize the current delivered and charge the devices faster.

Where can you use RoboVac?

  • Eufy robots can be used only indoors and only on dry surfaces.
  • For best performance, it’s not advisable to use RoboVacs on thick, plush carpets (more than 1 inch). Also, avoid carpets that have tassels.
  • Take note that the vacs can fail on very dark floors.
  • It’s better not to leave trailing cables as robotic vacuums may become entangled in them.
  • Do not use Eufy vacs on the carpets that have tassels, as the tassels may entangle RoboVac.

What should you avoid vacuuming with Eufy RoboVac?

You should definitely avoid:

  • Liquids including pet excrements.
  • Chemicals, and all inflammable/explosive hazardous materials. Burning objects like cigarette butts, matches, and ash also must be avoided.
  • Sharp objects (broken glass, screws, construction waste, and the like).

What is the boundary strip for? How to use it?

The boundary strip that comes with the most sophisticated Eufy vacs can keep it away from any area or object you don’t want a vac to clean. The robot will automatically recognize the boundary strip and won’t cross the borders of that blocked-off area.

To set the borders, you simply need to:

  1. Identify the area you want to protect.
  2. Measure the length of the boundary strip required and cut it off with scissors.
  3. Apply the adhesive tape (included in the kit) to lay the boundary strip flat on the floor or under the rug.

If the boundary strip is somehow rolled up (even a little bit), remove it and then re-apply. Otherwise, it might not work well. Also, you should keep the boundary strip away from the objects that emit heat.

What do I need to control a vac using Amazon Alexa or the Google Assistant?

If you’re just about equipping your house with smart devices and would like to start with a RoboVac, you need to purchase an Alexa-enabled device or a device enabled with the Google Assistant additionally. It can be Eufy Genie, Amazon Echo, Echo Dot, Amazon Tap, Echo Show, Echo Spot, Google Home, or Google Home Mini.

The Amazon Alexa app or Google Home app will be already installed on any of these smart devices, and all you have to do is create your personal account.
