You may be familiar with Eufy as a producer of some of the world’s best robotic vacuum cleaners, but did you know they’re also quite well-known in the vacuuming world for their handheld units? If not, here’s your chance to see one of their best models – the HomeVac H11.
This fancy handheld vacuum cleaner delivers more suction than you’d expect it to, and its versatile cleaning head makes simple work out of spot-cleaning the most cramped spaces. Let’s see what the HomeVac H11 is all about.

The thing that surprised me the most about the H11 is its tremendous suction power. With a maximum of 5,500 Pa, there’s no speck of dust, no strand of hair, and no crumb of old food that can escape the high-power draw of the H11. This handheld unit even outclasses many stick vacuums by a wide margin!
Of course, as a wireless handheld vacuum cleaner with a ton of suction power, you can’t reasonably expect the H11 to run for very long. On a full battery, it works for a little less than 15 minutes. To bring the battery back to max capacity, it requires up to 3-1/2 hours of charging. By handheld vacuum standards, this isn’t out of the ordinary.
Forget about (frequently) purchasing replacement filters. The H11 uses a washable high-efficiency filter that traps the tiniest of particles. The filter works quite well at preventing a majority of the collected dust from exiting through the exhaust port. Make sure to spend a bit of time reading the manual to find out how to properly clean the filter.
If you’re like 100% of the population who eats in front of their computer, then you’re already familiar with how painful it can be to adequately clean your keyboard. The H11’s soft-bristle brush attachment can make light work out of removing dirt and crumbs from delicate surfaces. No scratches, no tears, no problem!
Non-Slip Ergonomic Grip
The design of the H11 isn’t just for style points. The handle is designed in such a way to promote comfort while working for the entire 13-minute battery lifespan. Its wide enough to provide you with a comfortable grip without tiring out your fingers and wrist. Without the risk of slipping, you won’t need to worry about your sweaty hands dropping the H11 while working in warm places.
When it comes time to put the H11 away, you don’t to clear space inside of a drawer. The unit stands up perfectly without needing support. The only thing you’ll need to remember is where you placed the H11’s cap since it also doubles as a stand. Also, try and keep it out of reach of children and pets since a simple nudge can cause it to topple over.
About the size of a bottle of wine, the H11 weighs only 1.2 pounds on an empty dust bin. Very rarely will you find something as lightweight and as powerful as this handheld vacuum. Needless to say, the weight of the tool won’t wear you down, but it is a bit delicate and will crack when dropped from countertops.
Eufy gives you peace of mind by throwing in a 24-month warranty for the H11. Handheld vacs don’t last forever, but at least you can expect 2 years of use out of this model. Be sure to handle the H11 with care since damage caused by the user is not protected by the limited warranty.
No Charging Brick Included
Now, onto some of the cons. First of all, the H11 comes with a USB cable to charge it up but not a power brick. You’ll either need to use one you already have or purchase it separately. This isn’t the biggest of deals, but it does mean the box doesn’t come with everything you need to get it up and running.
The H11’s biggest flaw is its exhaust port. It’s located near the suction end and tends to scatter dust everywhere. It requires a bit of patience to get used to this serious design flaw.
The HomeVac H11 from Eufy is unlike most handheld vacuum cleaners in design and performance. With 5,500-Pa suction deliver, handy cleaning attachments, and compact design, this unit’s potential is limitless.
Whether you’re doing a bit of spot-cleaning at the office, cleaning the seats in your car, or need to get rid of crumbs in electronics, the H11 will be there for you. But no handheld vacuum cleaner is perfect, evidenced by the exhaust’s questionable location that causes dust to scatter.
