eufy RoboVac X8

This eufy innovation comes with twin-turbine technology. Airflow is increased by 80% so your home can be in the best shape possible. Also, more pet hair is cleaned up when compared to single-turbine robot vacuums. The X8 uses a rolling brush and washable high-performance filter.

This bot transitions between surface types with ease. 18 mm thresholds can be crossed. We just wish it was slimmer to go under more furniture types.

This bot operates fast, but whenever it is about to run out of battery, it redocks to recharge. Its dock needs to be positioned in a specific way to cater to the X8’s docking process, however…

iPath

This bot utilizes iPath laser navigation that:

  • Memorizes your home environment
  • Quickly builds a virtual map
  • Optimizes the cleaning route
  • Avoids obstacles (but not always)
  • Navigates even in the dark
  • Does not need your manual effort

Other technologies

The RoboVac also uses SLAM, which is simultaneous localization and mapping.

As for AI.Map 2.0 technology, the RoboVac is guided by intelligently generated multi-floor maps, so it will know where it is cleaning: the first floor, basement, or attic etc.

BoostIQ technology makes the RoboVac increase suction automatically when a carpet is found. The X8 is good with floors as well.

There is also UltraPack dust-compression, so dust is sucked into the dustbin with sheer force to maximize volume utilization and minimize the need for you to empty the dustbin.

Cleaning modes

Here are the cleaning modes:

  • 450 Pa * 2
  • 850 Pa * 2
  • 1,450 Pa * 2
  • 2,000 Pa * 2

The suction is generally good, but it does not pick up everything…

Smart control

Through the app, you can:

  • Customize cleaning areas.
  • Set no-go zones.
  • View maps.
  • See how much the X8 has cleaned.

And more! However, rooms could have been divided better on the app…

You can use voice control through Alexa or Assistant as well.

Conclusion

The eufy RoboVac X8 is a much appreciated addition by the legendary company, but it is not its best…

  • Pet-hair expert
  • Diverse suction
  • Surface-type coverage
  • Fast operation
  • Transitions well
  • Smart mapping
  • Battery life
  • Imperfect suction
  • May collide
  • Could be slimmer
  • Demanding dock
  • App room division
