Report on the vacuum robot
The hybrid device (Wipe and Suck) is the latest revelation from Eufy. We tell you if the device is suitable for your apartment.
Not suitable for...
Navigation of the vacuum robot
The device has a systematic cleaning. This means that the RoboVac G10 Hybrid drives the apartment in lanes. At the end he cleans again along the edges. Back to the charging station, he finds alone. There is also an “AUTO RETURN FUNCTION”. This must be activated in the app. If this is active, the vacuum robot returns to the station if the battery is no longer sufficient for cleaning, recharges up to 80% and then automatically starts cleaning again in the area where it left off. It all happens in car mode. In addition, there is still a spot cleaning mode. As you put the robot cleaning at one point and he drives them in a circle. The circles are getting bigger and bigger up to a certain radius. Then the orbit decreases again, to the starting point.
RoboVac G10 Hybrid suction power
The suction power is given as 2000 Pa by Eufy. That is perfectly sufficient for crumbs and animal hair. But as mentioned above, the robotic vacuum cleaner is not suitable for carpets. This is due to two reasons. For one thing, he has no main brush down. As a result, he can not lift the dirt on carpets. But eliminates the annoying hair removal at the main brush. On the other hand, the robotic vacuum cleaner has no carpet recognition which would also wipe the carpet in the wiping mode. As always with Eufy, I find that the noise development for this high suction power is extremely low.

Wipe function of the RoboVac G10 Hybrid
Everything needed for wiping is already included. This includes a water tank, 2 wipes and a plastic plate that you can put under the charging station. This is pretty handy. This prevents puddles from forming on the bottom of the charging station. You do not have to adjust anything for the wiping function. Simply attach the water tank under the dust container and it’s ready to be wiped. Basically, this works well too. There were never puddles in our tests. As it is with all other wiping robots, this feature is only a small nice addition. The wiping by hand does not save you. To do this, the devices simply put too little pressure on the floor. In addition, this device is still missing a carpet detection. He would also wipe the carpet with it.
Summary of the RoboVac G10 Hybrid
For about 250 euros you get a very good overall package. The RoboVac G10 looks good, is very quiet, very smart and you also get a systematic cleaning. The mobile app by Eufy has been revised and now shines “finally” in new splendor. The cleaning performance of the device speaks for itself. The wiping function is a nice addition and better implemented as the Ecovacs Deebot 600 but still no reason for me to buy. You should buy the device, if you are looking for a vacuum robot. Since I can only recommend the device. As a complete wiper replacement as well as all other devices, the robot is not suitable.
This is not the right device for you … then take a look at the test overview of all current vacuum robots and wiper robots.
