The Eufy RoboVac G10 Hybrid is not the first device of this type that I have dealt with. A robot vacuum cleaner is like a dishwasher – until you start using it, it may not be there. However, it is enough to try the technique for it to become your home assistant forever.
The RoboVac G10 Hybrid spent over two weeks in my apartment trying to prove it was true. Whether he succeeded or not, you will find out from the review.

Unpacking and kit
Eufy RoboVac G10 Hybrid is packed in a large box, which contains, in addition to a vacuum cleaner, a power supply and a charging station, as well as many additional items.
These are mainly spare parts that wear out as a result of using the device (mop cloth, side brushes and HEPA filter). I also remember the design of the optional base for the docking station, which protects the floor from possible leakage of liquid from the tank for mopping.
There’s even a set of cable ties to organize loose wires that the vacuum cleaner can get tangled in. Thus, the contents of the box can be considered complete and sufficient.
Design and construction
The Eufy robot vacuum cleaner looks very nice and elegant. The eye-catching pattern on the upper gives the impression that the RoboVac G10 Hybrid is not only practical, but also attractive.
Light reflections are visible on the upper tempered glass of the lid, the robot is protected by it so that pets do not scratch the lid. Unfortunately, because of this, the case is instantly covered with a layer of dust and fingerprints.
After unpacking and assembling the vacuum cleaner, I filled the wet cleaning tank with water and put the vacuum cleaner on the charging station to make sure that the battery was charged before the first cleaning. At the same time, I downloaded the EufyHome app from Google Play (also available in the Apple AppStore) and went through a simple and intuitive pairing procedure for the vacuum cleaner (available in Russian).
Application and control
I really enjoyed working with the companion app for the Eufy RoboVac G10 Hybrid, EufyHome.
While the robot was charging, I connected it to Wi-Fi (only 2.4 GHz networks are supported) and set it up to be controlled via EufyHome. After launching the application, select the device you want to add (the application is also used to support other Eufy smart devices).
In general, the program itself will guide us step by step, so there will be no problems with its use.
The application is easy to use, intuitive and at the same time available in Russian. Through EufyHome, you can adjust the suction power, start and stop cleaning, send the vacuum cleaner to charge, clean in one specific place and set a schedule.
You can also find a vacuum cleaner, although in practice it’s probably hard to lose a large black piece of plastic that’s unlikely to be anywhere else but on the floor. The application also has a function of manual control of the vacuum cleaner, which can bring a lot of fun. The software also monitors the level of wear of consumables.
Robot vacuum cleaner in practice
I could not describe in one word the experience of using the Eufy RoboVac G10 Hybrid. First of all, because the vacuum cleaner not only made me happy, but sometimes bothered me.
Although the application does not build a detailed map of the premises through which the robot moves, from observations of work and how the apartment looked after passing the Eufy G10, we can say that it is really accurate and looks into almost every nook and cranny. This is a big plus for the navigation system.
It is worth noting that the robot vacuum cleaner can also be controlled using voice commands – thanks to integration with Yandex assistants Alice, Google Assistant or Alexa. The RoboVac G10 Hybrid took about an hour to clean my apartment (less than 60 meters), which means that if you refuse the maximum suction power, it can vacuum it in one pass, without recharging.
The device is mainly intended for cleaning the flat surface of tiles or laminate, and the cleaning efficiency here can be described as very high. But, it is not possible for him to completely clean the carpet with a long pile. Many of the particles that should be collected just get stuck between the fibers, but again, remember the price.
Nevertheless, the RoboVac G10 Hybrid did an excellent job of removing dust and other small debris from the apartment. There was a wash mark on the floor, but the cloth itself showed no signs of wear or heavy soiling – perhaps this is due to the fact that other cleaning robots have already done their job.
After cleaning, the air feels fresh, but the floor still requires the intervention of a classic hand mop. In addition to the smell of freshness, sometimes when the RoboVac G10 is running, there is something else in the air that is agitated by the outlets of the vacuum cleaner.
Eufy’s RoboVac G10 Hybrid is 7.24 centimeters tall, which means it will be able to drive through and clean many places that a conventional vacuum cleaner can’t reach or can’t reach. In my case, the robot easily drove under beds and sofas. In order to vacuum in these places earlier, I needed to lift the mattress or the entire bed structure.
Gyro navigation worked surprisingly well. Other than launching, RoboVac no longer required any intervention from me. I also didn’t notice any major issues with obstacle avoidance. Not once did he get tangled in cables or get stuck, unable to return to base on his own.
Autonomy Eufy RoboVac G10 Hybrid
The battery of the Eufy G10 is perhaps its weakest point. The claimed battery life of 100 minutes is only achievable if you vacuum normally.
At maximum suction power, the run time is significantly reduced – in my tests, the Eufy only lasted 55 minutes before having to return to the charging station. As a result, the Eufy RoboVac G10 Hybrid with a 2600 mAh battery cleaned my apartment of 60 meters in normal mode in 50 minutes. The battery was three-quarters dead.
Charging time was about four hours, which is acceptable for such a device. Since the robot automatically returns to the charging station, you don’t need to worry. After charging, the vacuum cleaner also automatically resumes cleaning from the place where it did not finish cleaning. Yes, you may have to wait a little, but there is nothing to worry about.

To summarize the review of the Eufy RoboVac G10 Hybrid, I want to say that in general I liked this robot vacuum cleaner.
Its main advantages are an affordable price, thorough and rather quiet cleaning, aesthetic appearance and a convenient mobile application. Unfortunately, there are also disadvantages: I would describe the process of mopping as gentle wiping, and the clouds of dust that sometimes hover in the air after passing the RoboVac G10 Hybrid can be a nightmare for allergy sufferers.
However, the latter problem is common for this type of home appliance.
Is it worth buying
As a result, the advantages of Eufy’s RoboVac G10 Hybrid outweigh the disadvantages, so I can recommend it to anyone who is looking for an inexpensive robot vacuum cleaner for ₹11,999.00 .
