Do you know what they say about Eufy robotic vacuums? They’re some of the best available, and from looking at many of their previous products, we can’t argue. The new RoboVac G10 Hybrid is the very first robot-mop combo bot from Eufy – the added mopping feature will make cleaning your floors a lot easier and less time-consuming than ever before.
First things first, suction power. The G10’s supreme 2,000-Pa suction power delivery is in the same class as only the most powerful, most versatile robots out there. With this much suction power, there’s really no point in questioning whether the G10 is able to bare floors.

55-db Noise Output
Best of all, the G10, according to the manufacturer, disturbs dust and not people.
This is possible by the low-noise output of the G10 on Standard power mode. With only 55 db of noise, you’ll hardly notice the buzzing and the humming emitted from the robot as it passes from room to room. It’ll most likely be drowned out by ambient household noises from TVs, people, and possibly passing vehicles.
For some odd reason, pets take it upon themselves to fight, scratch, and claw new robots entering their territory, despite their task being cleaning up after them. Damage from cat and dog claws isn’t an issue – its top-facing tempered glass ensures that no scratches will form from pets or when it passes beneath furniture.
2-in-1 Vacuum and Mop
Now onto the main point: the added mopping feature. The G10 doesn’t just mop or sweep at once; with a tankful of water, this hybrid bot can do both simultaneously. It vacuums up front while pulling a moist cloth behind to give your floors a quick yet thorough cleaning when you’re too lazy to pick up the mop.
Like all combo bots, the G10 will not replace mopping entirely since it will not remove crusty old food particles.
The navigation software installed in a robotic vacuum cleaner is extremely importance. It’ll tell you how it navigates around its surroundings, avoids obstacles, and whether a map can be accessed through your smartphone.
The G10’s Gyro Navigation creates the most efficient weaving path instead of randomly bumping around your home, resulting in less battery waste and more square footage cleaned per charge.
The G10 comes with an impressive battery that provides up to 80 minutes of continuous cleaning per charge (40 minutes on Max Power Mode). As I mentioned earlier, this robot uses its battery as efficiently as possible thanks to Gyro Navigation. Best of all, as soon as the battery falls to 20%, it doesn’t just stop in its tracks.
Auto-Recharge and Resume
It makes a beeline for its charging dock to refuel. It can take anywhere from three to four hours to fully charge so the power-to-charging-time ratio isn’t too bad.
As soon as its battery it full, the G10 doesn’t await commands via Alexa, Assistant, or the downloadable smartphone app. Instead, it’ll pick up right where it left off when its battery was almost depleted. Super-handy if you ask me.
Hard Floors Only!
Despite its heavy-duty, 2,000-Pa suction power, Eufy advises that the RoboVac G10 stays on hard floors. With the mopping feature, this is understandable since the last place you ever need to mop, if ever, is your carpet.
The G10 uses suction to clean floors, not a rollerbrush for extracting embedded debris. Eufy has several other robotic vacuum cleaner models that are made for both bare and carpeted floors, but the G10 is not one of them.
No Boundary Strips/Programmable No-Go Zones
Another thing that’s definitely worth knowing about the RoboVac G10 is that it does not include boundary strips. In addition, the downloadable smartphone app does not give you control over setting up no-go zones.
This can be problematic for those with pet bowls, vases, or other fragile objects lying around on your floors.
Small Water Tank
This might seem nitpicky but it’s the cold, hard truth. Some might say the G10’s water tank for the mopping feature is too small, and I’d agree.
This completely eliminates the convenience of owning a mop-bot since you’ll have to refill the tank ever so often – probably in the middle of its cleaning cycle. It’s definitely not the end of the world, and I really don’t see how they could have made the tank bigger.Related Eufy Robot Vacuum Articles

Overall, the Eufy RoboVac G10 Hybrid is arguably one of the best vacuum-mop bots out there considering its affordable price tag. The only way this robot could be better is with the inclusion of boundary strips in the box since the app is pretty limited by what it can do.
That being said, you’ll have a difficult time finding another hybrid bot in its price category that compares to the awesome performance of the RoboVac G10.
