As our review goes live, the Eufy RoboVac 15C MAX has been available for just a matter of days. As self-professed fans of the Eufy brand, we had high hopes for this new release which has been designed to slot in between two of the most successful robot vacuum releases of all time in the RoboVac 11C and the RoboVac 30C. Eufy’s model numbers make plenty of sense, and their products have never disappointed thus far. This model definitely looks the business and is their most futuristic release so far. In the full review below, we will discover whether the cleaning power and connectivity measures up.

We have to admit that we get absurdly excited when a new robot vacuum cleaner hits the market, and the Eufy RoboVac 15C is about as fresh as it gets as this review goes live. After a few days of testing, poking and prodding, it quickly became apparent that our excitement was in no way misplaced.

From the moment this unit came out of the box, it felt like a luxury experience that even some models that retail at twice the price cannot match. If you have owned a Eufy RoboVac before or bought something as simple as a phone charger from Anker, you will know that they are almost at Apple levels with the quality of the packaging. The brand has an uncanny ability to make the buyer feel like a valued customer just from opening the box. Fortunately, if you take the plunge and opt to make the RoboVac 15C your robot cleaning companion of choice, this is only the beginning.

The unit’s design is just what would be expected from Eufy. The vast majority of robot vacuums out there on the market are black and circular. Someone will probably innovate something completely different one day, but for the time being, a big black dot is generally the best we can hope for. A difference is noted as soon as the 15C is turned on for the first time, as this model marks the debut of a larger blue light within the unit. It serves no practical purpose unless you regularly find yourself losing your robovac in the dark, but it adds that touch of aesthetic appeal that is often sadly lacking at this price point.

It looks and feels great, and it was immediately a shoo-in for our buyer’s guide covering the best robot vacuums for those with limited mobility. That all comes down to two major reasons. Firstly, this is among the lightest robot vacuums ever made. At 2.7 kg, it is barely heavier than the Eufy RoboVac 11C MAX even with all the added connectivity. To put it into perspective, the popular Bagotte Robot Vacuum comes in at 4.3 kg, while the comparably-priced iRobot Roomba 671 tips the scales at 3.6 kg.

Secondly, you do not need to be anywhere near this RoboVac to turn it on. Indeed, you do not even need to be on the same continent. If you’re relaxing on a Caribbean island, clean carpets back home should be the last thing on your mind – but you never know. The 15C boasts industry-standard levels of connectivity thanks to Wi-Fi. There is a mobile app for both Android and iOS which can be used for the simplest tasks like turning the unit on and sending it back to its charging base, or to schedule cleans for certain times each day. The unit also works with Amazon Alexa and Google Home, so you can use your voice to control its actions.

What will enable this unit to stand out compared to some of its otherwise equally well-connected competitors is that the iconic Eufy remote control has not been overlooked. Eufy has made the not unreasonable observation that not everyone for whom a robot vacuum would be most useful would necessarily have a smartphone. The standard remote operates by infra-red and works just as effectively as the mobile app, albeit over shorter distances. They have even included the batteries, so there is no excuse not to get the robot up and running right away!

A large part of the marketing of the Eufy 15C surrounds the fact that it boasts the manufacturer’s strongest ever suction. At 2,000 Pa, it rivals many of the most powerful robot vacuum models around, even at higher price points. There is basically no chance of this unit missing a spot, and the use of 10 separate infra-red sensors ensures that it finds itself in the right place and at the right time. As with all the latest RoboVacs, the 15C also makes use of BoostIQ technology which informs the robot cleaner when it needs to work a little harder on certain spots.

A single charge will be sufficient for most homes, even spanning both floors, with 100 minutes of cleaning time per full charge. It doesn’t make a song and dance about it either, as it follows in the footsteps of the 11S max through being no louder than a microwave when in action.

The RoboVac 15C successfully gives the impression that Eufy has thought of everything. We are still delighted by the fact that the regular remote has not been overlooked in favour of just the app. The box also contains a spare filter and even cable ties to give our robot pal a fair shot at not tripping over its own base unit’s wires.

It is a great package, and we can foresee the 15C shooting to the top of our own rankings, as well as the bestseller charts. It represents fantastic value at this price point and outperforms some models that verge on being twice the price. Only those with particularly thick carpets or that prefer dedicated mapping will find anything better than this, and such functionality does not come cheap.

Eufy RoboVac 15C MAX – Pros and Cons

  • Among the lightest robot vacuums around, weighing in at just 2.7 kg
  • Supreme connectivity through Wi-Fi, with links to a mobile app for Android and iOS
  • Suitable for all but the very thickest of carpets thanks to adaptable cleaning
  • No built-in mapping so cleaning patterns can be haphazard on occasion
  • The Eufy RoboVac mobile app is not the most sophisticated around – although it is very intuitive
  • Not suitable for high-pile carpets and rugs

Eufy RoboVac 15C MAX – The Verdict

Our primary consideration whenever reviewing a robot vacuum is how it measures up to the competition. Naturally, the first models to come to mind are the other core products in Eufy’s range, the 11C and 30C. Both are fantastic robovacs, but the 15C benefits from being the newest of the current models at the time of this review and has them both beaten. Subtle touches like the blue lighting are the icing on the cake for what might be the best robot vacuum around when comparing price to performance. It has everything that most buyers would want, from a fantastic clean to outstanding connectivity. The only reason to go for something more expensive would be for dedicated mapping and single-room automatic cleaning. Even similarly priced models from the closest competition cannot hope to compete with the combination of cleaning prowess, value and remote access that the RoboVac 15C provides.

Eufy RoboVac 15C MAX Review

As noted, the Eufy RoboVac 15C was essentially brand new when we tested it out for review purposes, and it would be fair to expect something as fresh as this to impress. We must say that we were well and truly blown away and we struggle to think of a superior robot vacuum for comfortably less than £300. If value for money if a major consideration, then it does not get any better than this. This is not the only area in which this robovac shines either and it is a market leader in so many categories. It has some of the strongest suction that we have ever seen, is among the lightest robot vacuums out there today and the connectivity rivals the most expensive robot vacuum models on the market. It is safe to say that the Eufy RoboVac 15C is a triumph of home cleaning design. It represents a true star buy and comes highly recommended.
