Eufy might not be the top brand that comes to mind when you hear cordless stick vacuums, but after reading our review of the HomeVac S11 Infinity, it definitely will be. This handy stick vac is a prime option for those who don’t want to lug around heavy uprights or canisters but also need high-pressure suction for medium and large sized debris.
I wasn’t kidding when I said the S11 Infinity delivered high-pressure suction. With a suction rating of 120 airwatts or 20,000 Pa, you’re getting almost-upright level suction strength in a compact, easier-to-use stick vacuum.
The S11 Infinity is exceptional on bare floors, but you can expect it to work almost as well on low-pile carpeting.
Up to 40 Minutes of Power
The battery pack in the S11 Infinity, on its lowest cleaning speed, can supply up to 40 minutes of continuous cleaning per charge. To put this in perspective, the average stick vac runs for up to 30 minutes. However, as you switch to higher vacuuming speeds, the battery runtime decreases significantly.
On standard, you get a max of 25 minutes, and on high-speed mode, you only have 8 minutes to work.
Back-Up Battery Pack
The great news is that the S11 Infinity comes with a back-up battery pack. If the first pack runs out of juice, just swap it out for the additional, fully charged pack, and you’ll have twice as much time to clean.
You very rarely see stick vacs come with additional battery so this is definitely worth getting excited over.
3 Handy Cleaning Tools
The floor brush isn’t designed for spot-cleaning above-ground surfaces – instead, the S11 Infinity provides you with three cleaning tools to make quick work out of small tasks. The first tool is a miniature motorized vacuum head that works beautifully at removing fur from upholstery.
The remaining two are crevice tools; one is a 2-in-1 attachment that’s great for staircases and tight corners. The other is attached to a flexible hose that fits easily between cushions. If you’d like to extend your reach, all you need to do is attach them to the end of the metal hose.
Wall Mounted Dock with Storage
Like most stick vacuum cleaners, charging the S11 Infinity requires placing it onto the wall mounted dock. It takes roughly four hours for the battery to reach full capacity which is about the average charging time in the stick-vac world.
Best of all, the charging dock has special compartments where each of the cleaning attachments can be placed so you’ll never lose them. As for the additional battery, you’ll need to charge it with the separate AC charger.
To ensure every speck of dust and every strand of hair stays in the dustbin, the S11 Infinity uses a 5-tier filtration system consisting of two cyclonic filters, a standard net filter, a high-density sponge filter, and finally a high-performance filter.
After passing through the five stages, there’s virtually no risk of dust being blown out into the air through the vacuum’s exhaust. However, without a True HEPA Filter, microscopic allergens (pollen, dander, etc.) may seep out through the cracks.
Tap to Dispense
Emptying out the dustbin is a simple process involving pressing a button that opens the dustbin’s latch. Everything inside falls out quickly and without getting trapped in or around the dustbin. To close the bin, simply pull the latch shut the stick vac is ready for round two.
Quick and Easy Maintenance
Even with numerous filters, keeping the S11 Infinity in tip-top shape is rather simple. The high-performance and high-density sponge filters can be removed from the dust cup for a quick rinse under running water. Make sure the filters are dried thoroughly before reinstalling.
Bright LEDs for Hunting Dirt
Stick vacs usually come standard with bright LEDs, and the S11 Infinity is no different. The brightness of the LEDs makes finding and eliminating dirt in dark spaces a lot easier. The lights illuminate the surface in front of the main vacuum head, pointing out piles of accumulated dust.
All that’s left to do is glide the vacuum and brushroll over the spot and move on to the next.
After reading this review, you should have a pretty good idea of just how great the S11 Infinity by Eufy is. Many customers have commented that this stick vac puts many of Dyson’s to shame, and at only a fraction of the price!
Choosing which cleaning speed is simple – low for bare floors, standard for carpets, and high for anything the vacuum may have missed in its first pass (not much, by the way).
