The RoboVac 15C MAX from Eufy is one of the most powerful robotic vacuum cleaners of today. It doesn’t have many of the convenience-adding features as many high-end models, but with Wi-Fi connectivity and decent navigation software, using the 15C MAX is definitely a joyful experience. Take a look at my review to see whether your floors deserve the magnificent cleaning performance that the 15C MAX has to offer.
2,000-Pa Max Suction
One of the first things customers will notice is that the 15C MAX has a maximum suction rating of 2,000 Pa. In case you’re wondering, the rough average of modern robotic vacuum cleaners is around 1,500 Pa so you get one-third more cleaning power than most models.
With this much power, the 15C MAX has absolutely no trouble cleaning low- to medium-pile carpeting in a single sweep, let alone bare floors. A lot of its enhanced cleaning performance has a lot to do with the…

3-Point Cleaning System
Namely, three brushes working in tandem to dislodge and bring in loose debris from carpet fibers into the vacuum inlet. The side brushes are tilted at such an angle as to reduce the amount of scattered dust and increasing how much actually enters the vacuum cleaner. The side brushes make quick, effortless work out of edge cleaning.
On bare floors, the robot doesn’t need to deliver 2,000 Pa of suction – this would significantly reduce its battery life without enhancing cleaning efficiency. Instead, thanks to BoostIQ Technology, the 15C MAX decides automatically how much suction pressure to deliver.
Transition times between different suction speeds is about 1-1/2 seconds so the robot saves more power, allowing it to clean a wider area on a single charge.
100 Minutes of Continuous Cleaning
When the 2,600-mAh battery is at full capacity, the 15C MAX can work for up to 100 minutes straight, but the maximum runtime per charge depends on how often BoostIQ kicks in. When the battery drops to roughly 20%, the 15C MAX will roll on over to its charging dock to refuel – a process that takes anywhere between 4 to 5 hours.
The sad part is that the 15C MAX doesn’t have an auto-resume function, meaning you’ll need to manually instruct the robot to get back to work (starting from the beginning). But that, folks, is hardly a problem.
The 15C MAX can connect to your home’s Wi-Fi router where users, after downloading the app on their smart devices, can send instructions from faraway distances. The app’s interface is pretty neat, albeit super-basic.
The available commands include start/stop, recharge, scheduler, and “find my robot” for when the 15C MAX gets trapped in some unknown dimension. Alternatively, you can shout orders at Alexa or Assistant, and they’ll relay them to the 15C MAX. Controlling a robotic vacuum cleaner could not be easier.
10 Built-in Infrared Sensors
The navigation software preinstalled in the 15C MAX isn’t the best, but it will definitely get the job done. The robot navigates your floors using a random “bouncing” pattern, although no actual bouncing is done thanks to the 10 infrared sensors built into the 15C MAX.
These sensors allow the robot to see and identify obstructions that it will attempt to avoid. Cliffs, stairs, and large obstacles are easily identifiable, but smaller objects like cables, not so much.
58-db Noise Output
One of the best features of the 15C MAX is not just its suction power but how little noise it produces while working at its highest speed setting. At most, the 15C MAX generates only 58 decibels – hardly enough noise to wake a person out of their slumber, and definitely not enough to scare the wits out of pet dogs and cats.
How much noise the 15C MAX produces is heavily reliant on its filter; a clogged filter will amplify vacuuming noises by several decibels, which is why I’m glad to report that it comes with a…
Long-Lasting Unibody Filter
The single onboard filter ensures that nothing inside of the 0.6-liter dustbin can escape through the vacuum’s exhaust, ensuring almost-perfect clean floors after a long day of vacuuming.
The Unibody Filter is designed in such a way to reduce the risk of clogging, thereby maintaining optimal cleaning performance for longer. Eufy recommends replacing the Unibody Filter once every two months.Related Eufy Robot Vacuum Articles

So what do you think of the Eufy RoboVac 15C MAX? After reading this review, you can see that there’s hardly anything to complain about. Powerful suction combined with BoostIQ Technology is a recipe for clean floors all day long, and with the smartphone app, the robot can get to work without needing supervision.
