eufy Boost IQ RoboVac 11s Review
If you hate cleaning your home and you love smart tech, this little vacuum will be your cup of tea. Ever since the first robot vacuums have shown up, we were considering getting one. They are small, they are smart, they are user-friendly, and they demand so little maintenance, you won’t even know they’re there. Here’s our take on this clever little robot vacuum.
Remember the scene from Disney’s Fantasia where Mickey enchants the broom? Now be honest — didn’t you want to have those powers just so you could clean your home easily? Ever since people started cleaning their homes, a magical device that would do it for them has been the fantasy.
And now that fantasy has become a reality. However, it is an expensive reality that most people can’t really afford. Or at least it was. eufy Boost IQ RoboVac 11s has changed all that. Efficient and affordable, this is the robot vacuum for everyone’s pocket.
The very first thing you’ll notice about the RoboVac is that it is amazingly slim. With only 2.85 inches of height, this model definitely justifies the S mark in its name. This slim model is among the lowest profile ones out there, which means it won’t have any trouble hunting down dust bunnies under your furniture.
This robot delivers approximately 1.300 Pa of suction, which means it’s not just elegant, but also powerful. It has a runtime of 100 minutes per charge, which is more than some high-end devices offer.
It will easily pick up the dirt from your floors. Cereal, dust, pet dander, crushed cookies, or dirt won’t stand a chance against it. Even better, you won’t have to empty it every day, as the dustbin has a 0.6L capacity.
When you look at this sleek little bot, it really doesn’t look like it’s among the cheapest on the market. That’s all thanks to the upper deck that’s made of plastic brushed like aluminum and covered with tempered glass. The only thing that stands out on its surface is a simple chrome power button.
And we like it that way, as do thousands of its users. It’s simple, it doesn’t look robotic, doesn’t look flashy, and it will fit into any home seamlessly.

What Else Comes with This Vacuum
Unlike many similar devices, this one doesn’t have a companion app. However, after having tested it, we firmly believe that it doesn’t need one. That being said, you should know that you don’t just get Robovac in the box.
It comes with a welcome guide, a remote control, AC power adapter, a charging base, and a worry-free 1-year warranty.
When additional tools are in question, RoboVac comes with a cleaning tool, 4 side brushes, 5 cable ties, and an extra set of high-performance filters.
eufy Boost IQ RoboVac 11S Performance
As always, we had to test this little guy and see if he really lives up to his reputation. And he does. Firstly, we tried to “talk him” into jumping over a ledge, but his drop-sensing tech prevented it. He just stopped, turned, and went the other way. Some of the most expensive models on the market aren’t able to do that.
Then we let it run around the house to see how it performs on different surfaces.
Since this model can clean up to 100 minutes per charge, it’s a pleasure watching it work. It goes over the floor in a random pattern and picks up small debris as if it were nothing. It also goes under the furniture to clean, which is a great plus. However, it does have one flaw — it can’t clean the corners properly. That’s something you’ll still have to do after it.
Thanks to its large wheels, this vacuum can climb onto your carpets without a problem and clean them as thoroughly as you would. These wheels even allow this eufy model to roll over obstacles. It can go over door ledges into different rooms to clean everything perfectly.
Powerful suction combined with a triple filter system is what ensures that 11s will pick up every strand of pet hair from your floors. And it really does clean up the place nicely.
What Do the Users Have to Say?
Alright, so we liked it. But what do people who are using this RoboVac on a daily basis have to say? Apparently, only nice things. With 4.5 on Amazon and 744 positive reviews, this amazing little robot is really well-liked.
Here’s what people keep repeating as the things they like the most about 11S. It is easy to use, it’s silent, it doesn’t get jammed in carpets or on cords, and it is amazingly durable. Furthermore, most of them are amazed at how clean their homes are now and how much dust and dirt their RoboVacs gather every day.
Those who disliked it commented on it being unable to work well on black surfaces, which is generally an issue with robot vacuums.
What Makes eufy Boost IQ RoboVac 11s Stand Out?
You will absolutely love how quiet this tiny vacuum is. It leaves a small footprint with its charging pad; it’s nimble and user-friendly. Whether you’re setting it up or cleaning it, you won’t have to go through much of a hassle. It even comes with a HEPA filter, so you know it will efficiently clean your floors from pet hair and allergens.
When it comes to robot vacuums, the price can be a bit hefty. However, with this model that isn’t the case, it’s wonderfully affordable.
Some of the eufy Boost IQ RoboVac 11s Setbacks
Even though we love its beautiful design and efficiency, this Robovac does have a few flaws. Its list of features is rather short, so you won’t get a ton of options. We also dislike the fact that it can’t clean corners, and that it cleans rooms in a random pattern. Its Power Boost option drains the battery quickly, so you will often see it on the charging pad.
eufy Boost IQ RoboVac 11s in a Nutshell
Cheap, small, and capable, Robovac will definitely do its job. We can see why it was voted to be the “Best Robot Vacuum of 2018” by Digital Trends.
Yes, it has some flaws, but every product does. So no, there’s no WiFi, no app, and no fancy features, but it will keep your home clean, and it won’t cost you an arm and a leg.
All you’ll have to do is empty the dustbin every once in a while. Sounds like a fair trade, doesn’t it?
