OtherCarpet Boost technology enables the Cybovac to detect carpeted surfaces and automatically increases suction power to 1500Pa for a deeper clean. The map it created just shows the area it cleaned and is cleaning. You can not use that map to stop the robot from cleaning a specific area, or ask the robot to vacuum selective zones.

  • Navigation:
    This is one of the key difference.
    The Cybovac E20 uses random navigation, it moves around randomly.
    The E30 and E31 use Gyroptic Navigation which enables the Cybovacs to move in a zigzag pattern and clean more efficiently.
    The S31 uses a more advanced laser navigation system that allows it to choose the most effective cleaning path.
  • Mapping:
    This is another big difference.
    The E20 does not create a map while the E30, E31 and S31 can create a real time map.
    The E30 and E31 can create a real time map. However, the map on the app is not useful. It just let you know where it cleaned and is currently cleaning, it has no other benefits. The Cybovacs do not use that map for later usage. You cannot set no go zones or specific areas to clean based on that map in the App.
    The S31 features Lidar Navigation System which allows it to scan and learn your home and create a map of your house layout in real-time. It cleans the house following the generated map. You can use the map to set selective cleaning areas and no-go zones via Kyvol App.
    If you want one with real mapping function, then the Cybovac S31 is the best one that meets your needs.
  • Mopping:
    The E20 and E30 do not have mopping function while the E31 and S31 are 2-in-1 robots which can vacuum as well as mop hard floors. The E31 uses a 300ml water tank whereas the S31 uses a 110ml water tank.
  • Self Empty Base:
    The S31 features self empty function which enables it to empty the dust bin by itself. It comes with a self empty base which uses a 4.3L dust bag that holds up to 60 days of dirt and debris. After every cleaning, the robot will dock and empty the dust cup.
  • Set No-go Zones & Selective Cleaning via App:
    Only the S31 allows you to set zones to clean or not to clean via App. While the E20, E30 and E31 only support magnetic boundary strip, and these three come with 6.6-foot boundary strip.
  • Side Brush:
    The E20 and S31 use two side brushes while the E30 and E31 use one side brush.
  • Max Suction Power:
    The S31 has the strongest max suction power which is 3000Pa, the E20 max suction power is the lowest which is 2000Pa, while the other two have 2200Pa max suction power.
  • Battery,Charge Time,Run Time
    The S31 uses 5200mAh lithium-ion battery, charge time is 5 hour, and runs up to 240 minutes; while the E20, E30 and E31 use 3200mAh lithium-ion battery, charge time is 6 – 6.5 hours, and runs up to 150 minutes.
  • Height
    The S31 height is 3.85-inch, it is taller than the E20, E30 and E31 which is 2.85 tall. The S31 uses new laser sensor which adds its height, makes it require higher clearance.
  • Suction Levels
    The S31 has 4 suction levels while the E20, E30 and E31 have 3 suction levels.
  • Dust Cup Capacity
    The S31 dust cup holds up to 500ml while the E20, E30 and E31 hold up to 600ml.

Similarities:

  • All of them support Wi-Fi;
  • voice control via Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant;
  • feature Carpet Boost which enables them to automatically increase suction power for deeper cleaning when detect carpeted surface;
  • Schedule Cleaning setting;
  • App control and Remote control;
  • Anti Drop ability;
  • carry 18-month limited warranty.

Eufy RoboVac Robotic Vacuum Cleaners Comparison

The Eufy by Anker offers a few robotic vacuums, some of them look very similar to each other, however, there is difference between them. For example, some use bounce navigation while some use smart navigation for increased efficiency; some support Wi-Fi while some do not; some can vacuum and mop whereas some only vacuum; some support virtual boundary while some work with physical boundary strip, etc.
I do the research and compare these Eufy RoboVacs below to show you the main difference between them, hope it helps.

Quick selection:

  • If you want the best selling one, get the 11S.
  • If you want one with mapping function, the only one you can get is the RoboVac L70.
  • If you want one that supports virtual No-Go Zone, only the RoboVac L70 fits your needs.
  • If you want one with mopping function, you can choose between the G10 and L70.
  • If you want the cheapest RoboVac, take a look at the 11S, it commonly is priced the lowest.
  • If you want the best RoboVac for pet hair, choose between those Max versions, G30 series,and the L70 which have higher suction power.
  • If you want a RoboVac exclusive for hard floors, check the G10, since it does not have a rolling brush.
  • If you want the best RoboVac for carpets, you could consider the Max versions, G30 series,and the L70 which have higher suction power. It is not recommended to use RoboVacs on carpets which is thicker than 1.02 inches / 26 mm.

Generates the strongest max suction power among the Eufy RoboVacs.
Longer running time and shorter charging time.
Increased climbing threshold height.

From the comparison chart, you can find some major things that may affect your buying decision:

  • Navigation Type: Bounce Navigation vs Smart Dynamic Navigation vs iPath Laser Navigation
    The RoboVacs – 11S, 11S Plus, 11S Max, RoboVac 12, 15T, 15C, 15C Max, 25C, 30, 30C, 30C Max, and 35C which use Bounce Navigation to navigate while cleaning your home will go straight until it detects an obstacle and then it will change direction randomly.
    The RoboVacs – G30, G30 Edge, G30 Verge and G10 Hybrid, which use Smart Dynamic Navigation to navigate when cleaning will move in a methodical pattern. Commonly, it will clean more efficiently than the random pattern for larger houses with complex layouts.
    The RoboVac L70 uses the iPath Laser Navigation which increases efficiency, it also gets the robot clean in a systematic pattern.
  • Mapping Function
    Only the RoboVac L70 can map your home, and allow you to set virtual boundaries to exclude the areas in which you don’t want RoboVac to enter.
    (For the G30, G30 Edge and G30 Verge, when they finish the cleaning job, you will see the map which shows when and where it cleaned via the app. The map is for your reference only if you wish to see how and where RoboVac cleaned. You cannot edit it or set boundary in it.)
    The other RoboVacs do not support the virtual No-Go Zone.
    Some of them – RoboVac 30, 30C, 30C Max, 35C, G30 Edge, G30 Verge and G10 can only recognize physical Boundary Strip, while the others are not compatible with boundary kits.
  • Wi-Fi, Voice Control Supported
    The 11S, 11S Plus, 11S Max, RoboVac 12, 15T, RoboVac 30 do not support Wi-Fi, voice control via Amazon Alexa, and Google Assistant.
    While the 15C, 15C Max, 25C, 30C, 30C Max, 35C, G30, G30 Edge, G30 Verge, G10, and L70 support.
  • Schedule: Daily vs Weekly
    The ones that do not support Wi-Fi only allow users to set daily schedule while those models support Wi-Fi allow you to set weekly schedule because they can work with the app.
    What’s the difference?
    For RoboVacs only have daily schedule, they will run every day at the same time once the scheduled cleaning mode set.
    For RoboVacs support weekly schedule, they can be sheduled at different date and time.
  • Max Suction Power
    The max suction power of these Eufy RoboVacs range from 1300Pa to 2200 Pa. Generally speaking, greater suction power will provide more thorough cleaning. However, on the other hand, it can drain more battery power.
  • Filter
    Triple-layer with High-Performance Filter vs Unibody High-Performance Filter
    At this moment (Jan. 2021), there are two types of filters, the Triple-layer with High-Performance Filter and Unibody High-Performance Filter.
    The Unibody filter is easier to clean and needs less maintenance.

Some hot questions and answers:

  • What’s the difference between Eufy G30, G30 Edge and G30 Verge?
    The difference between them is:
    The RoboVac G30 does not support Boundary Strip while the other two do.
    The G30 Verge is the offline model of G30 Edge, that means the G30 Verge is sold mainly offline.
    The Verge has one set of 6.6-foot boundary strip whereas the Edge comes with 2 sets which has a total length of 13.2 feet.
    There is also tiny difference on the color scheme.
    The other things are the same.
  • What’s the difference between Eufy RoboVac 11S and 11S Max?
    The main difference between the Robovac 11S Max and 11S is the suction power and the filter design.
    The max suction power of 11s Max is 2000Pa versus 1300Pa on the 11S.
    The 11S uses Triple-layer with High-Performance Filter while the 11S Max uses Unibody Filter which is easier to clean and requires less maintenance.
    The other features of these two Robovacs are the same.
  • What’s the difference between Eufy RoboVac 11S, 15C, 25C, 30C, and 35C?
    Only the 11S does not support Wi-Fi, Voice Control, and it has daily schedule while others have weekly schedule.
    The max suction power are not the same among these RoboVacs. The 11S, 15C, 25C, 30C, and 35C have max suction power of 1300Pa, 1300Pa, 1500Pa, 1500Pa, and 1500Pa.
    Only the 30C and 35C work with Boundary Strip (the 30C comes with 2 sets 35C includes 1 set), while the others do not.
    The RoboVac 25C and 35C use the Touch-Control Panel with three control buttons instead of one on the other models.

Shark IQ vs AI Robot what’s the difference?

Both the Shark IQ and Shark AI robot vacuum series have a few models, you can read the comparison of some of the Shark IQ robots, and AI robots comparison to learn more on each series.

The main difference between the Shark IQ and AI robot is:

images from Shark official site infomercials

  • AI Laser Vision
    The Shark AI robot is a newer series, it features Shark’s most advanced vision module – AI Laser Vision which makes Shark’s IQ Navigation smarter, it helps the robot detect and avoid objects. The better thing is that it supports virtual no-go zones. It can respond to the no-go zones you set up in the app. Meanwhile, the AI robots can still recognize the physical BotBoundary strip.
    To keep the IQ robots from certain spots, you need to use the physical boundary strip, they does not support virtual boundary.
    The AI Laser Vision also enables the AI robot to run properly in low light conditions because the AI Laser Vision is not dependent on ambient lighting.
    Whereas the IQ robots will not navigate correctly in the dark, it cleans but it will not move in a row by row pattern. Because it needs light to know where it’s going. For better cleaning performance and coverage, it is recommended to turn on the lights when running the IQ robots at night or in low light conditions.
    P. S.
    The AI robot will only avoid objects taller than 2.8 inches. Anything lower than this height will not be recognized.

  • Sonic Mopping
    The AI robot includes a vacmop version, including Vacmop RV2000WD and Vacmop Pro RV2001WD, which features sonic mopping that scrubs 100 times per minute. With the mopping module, the robot can vacuum and mop hard floors at the same time. The mopping kit includes a fluid reservoir and a mopping pad. The Vacmop packages also come with a trial size bottle of solution.
    Whereas all the IQ robots are not compatible with the mopping kits.
  • Self Empty
    Though the AI robot is the newer series, it does not support the Self Empty Base which the IQ Self Empty series features. The IQ Self Empty robots come with a self empty base that holds dirt and debris up to 30 days of cleaning. The robot equipped with an Empty & Resume feature that allows the robot to return to its base after 30 minutes of cleaning to empty its dust bin, then resume its cleaning session. This feature can be disabled in the app. Shark recommends to turn this on for high traffic areas and homes with pets.

  • There are also some less important difference, such as the dust cup capacity, dimensions, and weight.

the Vacmop and Vacmop Pro feature sonic mopping function to mop hard floors whereas the basic AI Robot does not have this feature.
You cannot buy the AI Robot R201/RV2001 and R211/RV2011, then add the fluid reservoir later. Because the AI Robot is not compatible with fluid reservoir.
The Vacmop can only wet mop hard floors, but cannot wet clean carpets.
The robot has the ability to detect carpets and rugs.
You can activate the Carpet Detection in the app when it mops to stop it from moving onto carpets and rugs, or set up no-go zones in the app.

According to product specifications on Shark official site, the AI Robot dust bin capacity is 0.33 quarts versus 0.27 on the vacmop and vacmop pro.
And the AI robot weighs 7 lbs versus 7.6 lbs on the vacmop and vacmop pro.

What’s new on these Shark AI robots?
The Shark AI robots adds the new AI Laser Vision which claimed to be Shark’s most advanced vision module. It enables the robot to detect and avoid obstacles, and respond to no-go zone you set up in the app. Unlike the previous robot versions, it does not require the physical boundary strip to keep the robot out of certain areas. The Vacmop models also feature sonic mopping which scrubs hard floors 100 times per minute. You can not schedule the vacmop robot to dry vacuum first then wet mop. It vacuums and mops simultaneously when the fluid reservoir and mop pad attached. To vacuum only, the fluid reservoir must NOT be attached to the robot. And it does not mop only.
And according to Shark, the AI Laser Vision is not dependent on ambient lighting and can navigate your home at night or in low lighting conditions. Previous series robots needs light to know where they are going, if clean in dark areas, they cannot clean properly in a row by row way.

Some questions and answers:

  • Do they clean randomly or methodically?
    They clean row by row methodically.
  • Do these Shark AI robots have the self empty feature like the IQ self empty robot?
    No. The Shark AI robots is not compatible with the self empty base.
  • Can you use it to clean a multiple story house?
    It can only map one floor. You would need to manually move it to another floor. When the Robot is low in battery, you would need to manually put the Robot on the charging dock to recharge.
  • Do they return to charge automatically and resume cleaning?
    Yes. As long as you use them on one level, and follow the user guide, these things should be done automatically.
  • Do they include boundary strip so that you can stop them from entering no go zone?
    No. These AI robots now support virtual no go zone, so they do not need the boundary strip anymore.
  • Do they work without internet connection?
    Yes. But any features that require Wi-Fi will not work.
  • How tall are these vacuum robots?
    They are 3.48-inch in height.
  • With the AI robot vacmop, can you set it to vacuum only?
    It will not mop hard floors unless you attach the fluid reservoir.

Another difference is the dust bin capacity. The bin on R100 holds up to 0.6 quarts while the R101AE has a much smaller dust bin which holds up to 0.2 quarts. However, since the R101AE features self empty base, the smaller bin does not matter.
