The Eufy RoboVac G10 Hybrid marks one of my favourite robot vacuum manufacturers’ second foray into the world of hybrid robot vacuums and robotic mops. The first, the Eufy L70, was and remains an excellent device, with a high price tag to match. The G10 does almost everything the L70 does, but at a price that won’t have your wallet casting questioning glances in your direction. I immediately drew comparisons between this model and the 15C MAX, which has sat atop the list of best robot vacuums on the site for months at the time of writing. It’s like taking that and adding mopping functionality, and slightly bumping up the price to make it possible. This device was made with hard floors in mind, and if you don’t have carpets and rugs, you’re in for a treat in this review.

Our Eufy RoboVac G10 Hybrid Robot Vacuum and Mop Review
Roomba might still be the name to beat when it comes to robotic vacuum cleaners, but Eufy has certainly proven an appetite for innovation and competition. The Eufy RoboVac G10 Hybrid isn’t the first combined robot vacuum and mop from the company – that would be the Eufy RoboVac L70. However, with the L70 now being somewhat difficult to get hold of in the UK, we already consider the G10 as being the brand’s flagship hybrid model, and an excellent choice for anyone that wants not only to vacuum, but mop too.
It feels like the Eufy RoboVac range grows all the time, and they have released more robotic vacuums in the last couple of years than any other brand. Crucially, these releases are not rehashes, and Eufy has grabbed significant market share through designing new robot vacuums with particular customers in mind. With the G10, the USP is that it is designed specifically for hard floors. Do you have no carpets in your home? Then this could be the best-optimised robovac you’ve ever seen. With that said, if you have any carpets at all, we’d have to point you away from this one. The G10 does have the power to clean a carpet, but Eufy themselves say that the navigation on this model can be knocked out of line if it encounters carpets. With that in mind, if you’re happy to forego mopping for something similar that will work on carpets, we recommend the Eufy RoboVac 15C MAX (currently topping the charts on our list of the best robot vacuums at the time of publication). If mopping is essential, then there’s no better choice right now for a robovac that can indeed cope with carpets then you won’t beat the Roborock S5 MAX, but do be warned, it’s almost twice the price of the G10! For something around the same price, and often even cheaper than the G10, I’d suggest the Lefant T700. It’s not as good as the G10 overall, but it mops and handles carpets well.
In the Box
Presentation matters at Eufy. If you’ve ever bought anything from a charging cable to a pair of wireless headphones from Anker, Eufy’s parent brand, then you’ll have got serious Apple vibes from the packaging. It makes for a luxurious experience from the moment your G10 arrives, but it’s what’s in the box that matters most. Naturally, you’ll find the robovac itself along with the base unit that will act as the unit’s home for the next few years, plus a power adapter for your country. I’ve written before on the importance of keeping your robot vacuum clean, and Eufy makes that easier thanks to the inclusion of a cleaning tool. The water tank arrives separately, and the G10 Hybrid will run without it if you so choose, and there are also two mopping cloths in the box, which will last a while as they’re washable in their own right.
Everything else comes attached to the robovac as standard, but you’ll receive plenty of spares. There’s an extra set of filters, four additional side brushes and a pack of cable ties to ensure that your G10 doesn’t get tangled up in its own power cord on the way back to base. There’s the all important G10 Hybrid manual and a separate installation guide, all finished off with Eufy’s standard 12-month warranty.
Cleaning and Capacity
Given that the Eufy RoboVac G10 Hybrid is designed for hard floors, and Eufy’ explicitly encourages owners not to use it on carpets or rugs, I wasn’t sure what to expect by way of power. The nature of hard surfaces means that most of the dirt and dust is surface level and you don’t necessarily need the suction power of the 15C MAX or something like that for a great clean. The good news is that you get it anyway! At 2,000 Pa of power, the G10 is right up there with the most powerful robot vacuums around. Thanks to that power, Eufy has decided against using a typical roller brush, so you don’t have to worry about scratches on your hard surfaces, with the two side brushes taking care of bringing dirt into the robot’s path.
Both the dirt box and the water tank come in at a capacity of around 0.6l. For vacuuming, that means emptying the G10 a couple of times each week if you run it daily. For mopping, that means around 60 square metres of cleaning – about the same size as a quarter of a tennis court. Eufy recommends not adding detergent to the water tank due to the risk of damaging the tank itself. That does mean that the mopping jobs are ultimately somewhat superficial, and you’ll need a regular mop for any ground in stains. However, for keeping the floors shiny and free of light spillages and dust, it certainly gets the job done.
Battery and Charging
It’s possible to leave the G10 to it regardless of surface, and it will choose between vacuuming and mopping, or even do both at the same time if you want it to. You have full control over this, but it’s fair to say that if you leave it to its own devices, it’s putting in quite a lot of work compared to other robot vacuums. This does have a slight effect on battery life, which comes in at around 80 minutes. That should still be more than sufficient for small to medium homes, and power consumption varies depending on whether the robot is mopping or cleaning at the time. If it’s vacuuming only, then it matches up to other Eufy RoboVacs of this generation, with around 100 minutes of cleaning.
Charging is also around the same as what you’ll be used to if you’ve used a Eufy RoboVac before. The G10 requires around five to six hours to fully charge from empty. If that sounds like a long time, you’ll find it doesn’t pose much of a problem as it will actively manage its charging needs and optimise getting back to full whenever it’s on the base.
One thing I’ve always loved about Eufy Robovacs is they’re often much quieter than the competition. That’s particularly impressive given how powerful they are. Whether mopping or vacuuming, you won’t expect to hear anything over around 50 dB out of this unit, making it quieter than a microwave.
As with all current robot vacuums from Eufy, the G10 Hybrid comes complete with true HEPA filters, ensuring that you can not only expect cleaner floors, but better air quality too. Dust and dirt ends up in the dust box and not flicked up into the air. They last for months without any action on your part, and your first replacement is effectively free as there’s a spare filter kit in the box, which covers both the mopping and vacuuming filters. If you like to stock up as you buy, you’ll find the standard vacuum filter kit here and a set of replacements for the mop here, and neither will break the bank.
Eufy rarely disappoints when it comes to connectivity either. Most people have wifi in their homes, and the Eufy RoboVac G10 Hybrid is more than happy to make the most of it. Initial setup is simple and uses the mobile app, available for both iOS and Android, to make the connection. Once it’s hooked up, you can use the app for anything and everything, from starting a clean to scheduling one for later. Naturally, you can do things on the app from anywhere you have an internet connection, and don’t have to be in the home to make it happen.
The Eufy RoboVac G10 Hybrid also works with voice control thanks to compatibility with Amazon Alexa and Google Home. Robot vacuums that work with Apple’s HomeKit are few and far between and this isn’t one of them, but I’d imagine that support is only a software update away once Apple makes it possible.
Mopping on the Eufy RoboVac G10 Hybrid
I’m yet to find a robotic mop that can completely replace a standard, manual mopping when it comes to tough stains. Then again, I also feel like we’re some way off finding a robot vacuum that can fully replace an upright – after all, who’s going to clean the stairs?! If anything, I’d suggest a manual mopping first, and then relying on the G10 to keep things neat and tidy by going over the relevant floors once or twice each week. I can’t imagine that many people go out of their way to stain the floor, so the mopping on the G10 will keep things sparkling.
I will specify that the mopping on this device isn’t a gimmick or a waste of time by any means. It’s certainly better than nothing and the quality of the clean is right up there with the likes of the Lefant T700 and only slightly below the aforementioned Roborock S5 MAX, which is to be expected given the price difference.
There are good and slightly limited points to the navigation on the Eufy RoboVac G10 Hybrid. Eufy’s standard navigation system has always been quite good, and it takes another step here with the use of what the company calls Smart Dynamic Navigation. It claims to cut cleaning time in half, and I can see that being the case. It definitely does a better job than my iRobot Roomba 671, which has been relegated to something of a backup role but still likes to crash into as much furniture as possible when it gets the chance.
The zig-zag pattern this robovac takes ensures a speedy, even clean and it won’t disappoint. However, the limitations I referred to come down to boundary strips. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: this is an outstanding robot vacuum for hard floors, but it’s not made for carpets. That goes for rugs as well. If you used the RoboVac 30C, you could also make use of boundary strips around rugs and other areas for which robotic vacuuming is unsuitable. However, the G10 doesn’t support these strips, and there are no specific navigation tools in the app either. In short, it cleans well and does so quickly, but there are a couple of – in my opinion, entirely optional – bells and whistles that you won’t miss if you’ve never used them, but might make a difference if you have.
Eufy RoboVac G10 Hybrid – Pros and Cons
- Leaves hard floors looking as good as new with a combined wet/dry clean
- Runs for well over an hour, even while combining both functions at the same time
- Can serve as a robot vacuum alone by emptying or removing the water tank
- Not a great buy for anyone that has carpets or rugs as they can interfere with mapping
- No support for either physical or digital boundary strips
- Has a slightly smaller dust box compared to other Eufy RoboVacs to accommodate the water tank
Eufy RoboVac G10 Hybrid – The Verdict
I really, really like the Eufy RoboVac G10 Hybrid and feel that it does exactly what it says on the tin, and does it very well indeed. The primary consideration is whether you have carpets and rugs. If you do, this isn’t the robot vacuum for you – even if you want the mopping functionality. Carpets won’t ruin the device, but Eufy has stated that any kinds of carpet can throw out the navigation sensors, potentially even meaning that your RoboVac can’t find its way home. The lack of a main brush also means it would be somewhat underwhelming on carpets too.
Eufy RoboVac G10 Hybrid Review
However, if you only have hard floors, and I’m talking laminate, hardwood, tiles or anything else that isn’t carpet, then this robot vacuum represents a fantastic investment. It’s a step above the Lefant T700, which is it’s main rival at this price point, largely due to better mopping and superior navigation. It’s easy to see that Eufy has taken numerous steps to ensure that it’s optimised to clean hard surfaces without damaging them. If there are no carpets or rugs in your home, then this is the best robotic vacuum and mop hybrid you can buy today without spending almost twice as much on the L70 or S5 MAX.
Eufy RoboVac G10 Hybrid – Questions and Answers
Can the Eufy RoboVac G10 Hybrid Mop and Vacuum at the Same Time?
You can indeed – and if you don’t remove the water tank, you don’t have much alternative. The way in which the G10 Hybrid cleans involves a combination of the side brushes at the front, the powerful 2,000 Pa suction in the middle and the mop at the rear. In effect, the G10 will suck up dirt and dust first, and follow that up with a polish for that extra special clean. Preventing mopping isn’t the most elegant – it would be nice to be able to disable it in the app. However, if you don’t want mopping while vacuuming, you can either empty the water tank or remove it altogether.
Does the Eufy RoboVac G10 Hybrid Work on Carpets?
Technically yes, but it’s not designed to and there’s not much room for compromise either. The suction power is enough to clean carpets – this device puts out the same suction as the Eufy RoboVac 15C MAX, which is our highest rated robot vacuum overall at the time of writing. However, with different brushes, the G10 isn’t as effective. Carpets can also interfere with the onboard mapping and navigation on this device. So, in the simplest terms, I’d have to say don’t buy this robovac if you have carpets or rugs!
Does the Eufy RoboVac G10 Hybrid Cope with Pet Hair?
If you only have hard floors in your home, the G10 Hybrid is absolutely fantastic for pet owners. It’s got the suction power to take care of hair and fluff, and the mopping capabilities to get rid of stains and marks. I’ve always considered a HEPA filter as being all but essential for pet owners too, and this device delivers in that area too. It goes far beyond coping and really stands out.
Does the Eufy RoboVac G10 Hybrid Work with Amazon Alexa and Google Home?
Eufy has made fantastic connectivity a key part of their product selection and every robot they’ve released outside of the truly entry-level models has boasted support for wifi, Amazon Alexa and Google Home. If you’ve used a Eufy device before, you’ll be fully clued up on how easy it is to link to wifi through the mobile app, and it’s a pleasure to use for scheduling, starting cleans and all the other functionality you might hope for.
Is the Eufy RoboVac G10 Hybrid Compatible with Boundary Strips?
One thing you can never be sure of with Eufy RoboVacs is whether they’ll work with magnetic boundary strips. The 30C is, but the 15C MAX isn’t. The G30 won’t recognise them, but the aptly named G30 Edge will. To answer the question, the G10 Hybrid isn’t compatible with those strips. There’s no boundary-setting facility in the app either, so you’ll want to keep the floor clear of wires and other obstacles as this is a robot vacuum and mop that goes where it wants!
Will the Mop on the Eufy RoboVac G10 Hybrid Deep Clean Floors and Remove Stains?
I touched on the quality of the mopping on the G10 earlier in the review. It’s not a substitute for mopping the floors yourself, especially if you or others in your home tend to spill things a lot. This isn’t a criticism, as I’m yet to see a robotic mop that can truly replace human input, and I’ve seen every one on the market to date. As long as you consider the mopping on this unit as being a polish and a bit of added shine to your hard floors, you won’t be disappointed.
