Our friends at Eufy and Anker continue to iterate and improve their products, as evidenced with the Eufy RoboVac 35C. The 35C is very similar to the Eufy RoboVac 30C we previously reviewed, however, it adds a touch control panel to the top of the vacuum. Also, the RoboVac 35C is sold through retail, while the 30C is sold via Amazon.
As I mentioned, the Eufy RoboVac 35C is very similar in most ways to the RoboVac 30C, so I won’t rehash our previous review too much. However, I will point out the differences between the two and talk about how the RoboVac 35C has performed for us during the testing period.
The biggest difference, which I noticed immediately and thanked Eufy for was the touch panel on top of the robot. While the remote is still the main way we interact with the RoboVac, the touch panel allows you to interact with the robot in different ways. There are a total of three buttons on the touch panel, including start/stop, a power plug icon which tells the robot to go back its charging base, and a swirling icon which puts the RoboVac into spot cleaning mode.
Let’s say the robot gets stuck under a couch or you need to clean out the brush. You’ll bend down and free the robot from its sticky situation, but while doing so you may have left the remote up on the counter. With the RoboVac 30C, if you wanted to send the RoboVac back to its charging base at this point, you’d have to go grab the remote. But now, with the touch panel, you can simply press the “power plug” button on top of the vacuum and it’ll find its home.
Performance is still excellent, thanks to the RoboVac 35C’s 1500Pa suction and 100-minute battery capacity. We still appreciate the fact that the body of the 35C is low to the ground and can fit under the chairs in our living room and dining room. We can also still use our EufyHome app to control both our RoboVac 30C in the den and the RoboVac 35C in the living room, dining room, and kitchen, thanks to the Wi-Fi connectivity.
