We recently reviewed the Eufy Robovac 11S, the slim model in Eufy’s massively popular 11 series. Naturally, compared to the original, it was smaller and stood a better chance of reaching under furniture for a more thorough clean than the original Eufy RoboVac 11. Now, it is the turn of the Eufy RoboVac 11C and this time, the C stands for connectivity. Every robot vacuum in Eufy’s 11 series has been a cracker so far, but this one takes things up a notch. One of our main complaints has always been that the manufacturer rarely ventures further than an infra-red remote control to save bending down and hitting a button. The inherent cleaning power, combined with a wealth of activation options, could make the 11C the star at this price point.

The Eufy RoboVac 11C has been around for a while as we embark on this review, and it was partly for the sake of completeness in the 11 series that we decided that we simply had to get our hands on one and test it out. Having already experienced the excellent cleaning abilities of the standard 11 model and the slimmed-down RoboVac 11S, we were eager to see what the 11C could do, not least because it solves one of our most common issues in the range.

Connectivity does not matter to everyone, and the infra-red remote control that comes with the 11C is often sufficient for the needs of many. However, when you have seen what some of Eufy’s closest competitors can do with Wi-Fi and voice activation, you do have to wonder whether the potential is there.

It clearly is here on the 11C, which compares well to Roomba models in the same price range for connectivity. Wi-Fi is supported as standard, and this enables the first mobile app in the 11 series. Robot vacuum mobile apps are something that we can spot plenty of areas for improvement in as neither the efforts from iRobot on their Roombas or Eufy on their RoboVacs is particularly sophisticated or exciting. Nevertheless, we have grown accustomed to their flexibility and would always suggest going for the connected model in any range.

The Wi-Fi is not only suitable for scheduling cleans and remote activation through the app. It also ensures that the RoboVac 11C will be comfortable in the smartest of homes thanks to its Amazon Alexa and Google Home capabilities. You can use your voice to trigger a clean and, just as expected at this price point; this smart vacuum will head back to base when cleaning has been completed and set about charging up, ready for the next job.

Eufy RoboVac models generally have the edge over comparable Roombas in battery life, and that proves to be the case here. In standard cleaning, meaning that the RoboVac is not stopping every few seconds for intensive cleans, this one will last for 90 minutes between charges, which should be more than sufficient for both floors in an average home.

Another difference between iRobot Roombas and Eufy RoboVacs is the cleaning process. The former generally rely on lower suction but more brushes and rollers, while the latter bumps up the suction power. The 11C clocks in at 1,000 Pa, which compares to 1,300 Pa on the 11S.

Eufy RoboVac 11C – Pros and Cons

  • Fantastic connectivity through a mobile app and voice activation with Amazon Alexa and Google Home
  • Excellent cleaning on home surfaces
  • Automatic docking and charging at the end of jobs
  • Slightly louder than 2nd-generation Eufy RoboVacs at 60 dB
  • First generation model lacks refinement
  • Only suitable for thin carpets

Eufy RoboVac 11C – The Verdict

It is essential to consider at this point that the 11C model we have reviewed here is a first generation Eufy model. Most of the Eufy RoboVacs you can buy today are second generation models and, as such, have benefited from incremental improvements. To be clear, if you were to buy a Eufy RoboVac 11C today, you would not necessarily benefit from the latest robot vacuum technology. Unfortunately, that is not necessarily reflected in the price.

Eufy RoboVac 11C MAX Review

What makes the 11C difficult to recommend is that the Eufy RoboVac 30C is a superior robot vacuum cleaner. It boasts stronger suction, a lower profile and the same connectivity features that users will find here. On top of all of this, you will also find that the 30C can be snagged for the same kind of price as the 11C. We would always promote the idea of going for the most recently released robot vacuum that you possibly can as technology moves just as fast in the robovac world as anywhere else. With that in mind, while we do consider the Eufy RoboVac 11C as being a decent robot vacuum cleaner in its own right, it is beaten within its own range. All the good points of the 11C are readily available on the 30C, along with so much more. If the price difference were significant, there would be a decision to make. However, the Eufy RoboVac 30C is simply equal or better in every area and, as such, comes more highly recommended than this one.
