✅ #1 Top Pick: ILIFE V8s Robotic Mop & Vacuum
The ILIFE V8s is an affordable option for homes w/ lots of hard flooring.
It comes w/ 6 cleaning modes + new mopping function — it mops in blocks (23 ft. x 23 ft.), making it very efficient.
V8s also comes w/ new floor-detection sensors.
If it senses carpeting or high-dirt areas, it increases 5X suction — powerful enough for deep particles and dog hair!
Also comes w/ remote control + large .75 dustbin.
Lots of positive reviews + affordable price!
Eufy BoostIQ comes w/ a triple-filter vacuum + mobile app function.
BoostIQ’s powerful suction of 1500Pa is strong enough to pick up 99% of particles in carpeting.
It also features a “Quiet Clean” mode that lasts 100-mins per charge — buyers confirm it’s relatively quiet and great for night cleaning.
As a triple filter vacuum it has a special filter for the smallest particles + dog/human hair.
9Best of all, you can schedule or command using the mobile app.
Overall, the Eufy BoostIQ is an affordable option w/ positive reviews.
The ILIFE A8 Vacuum is a quiet operating vacuum w/ affordable price.
Compared to similar vacs, the A8 is very quiet at 64 decibels — using the mobile app, you can select the lower power level and run even quieter at night.
It also comes w/ advanced suction — perfect for large carpeted areas or picking up hair.
Battery life lasts 130 mins per charge.
Overall it’s a very affordable vacuum w/ solid features.
The eufy RoboVac 11S is one of the slimmest robot vacuums – only 2.85 inches tall.
Slim height is what makes it unique — can get under furniture that other robot vacuums can’t: coffee tables, couches, dressers, etc
Relatively strong battery strength — operates for 100-mins (on standard vacuuming) or 60-mins (with increased suction).
BoostIQ allows eufy to sense flooring type and choose the appropriate suction power.
For areas requiring higher suction, the RoboVac 11S will auto increase suction.
In terms of price, the eufy BoostIQ 11S is very affordable + has very positive buyer reviews.
The Roomba 890 vacuum is moderately priced and offers amazing suction power.
It connects via WiFi and is compatible w/ the Roomba mobile app.
For performance it includes floor-detection sensors — it automatically increases suction capacity for rugs/carpets and is able to pull embedded particles.
Using iRobot’s advanced mapping it’s unlikely to get lost. You’re also able to send it to specific areas of your home using the LED barriers.
Battery life is 90-mins per charge — should be enough for most homes.
Roomba 890 has lots of positive buyer reviews.
Fancy a robot vacuum w/ mobile app control + very affordable price?
The newly upgraded Deebot N79 comes w/ auto-clean mode, smart motion navigation + 3-tier cleaning system:
1/ Direct vacuuming
2/ Helix brush-roll
3/ Dual-sided brushes
Helix brush design is one of the unique features — reaches deeper into the carpet and does well along wall borders + corners.
Deebot N79 includes 3 cleaning modes:
1/ Smart Motion – guided auto-cleaning
2/ Spot Mode – for specific areas
3/ Edge Mode – for edges and corners
Buyers love the mobile app — they can activate it from anywhere + get realtime status notifications.
Battery life is approx. 90-mins per charge.
With its chic design + versatile features that have made it one of the most popular Roomba vacuums online.
What does this model offer? Using iRobot’s patented 3-stage cleaning system the Roomba 690 uses multi-surface brushes, an edge brush, and enhanced suction power.
⭐⭐ Best Robot Vacuum for Medium Size Homes ⭐⭐
Dirt Detect sensors auto alert the 690 to increase power when stumbling upon extremely dusty or dirty areas — Paired w/ 3-stage cleaning system, it is ready for any type of floor surface.
What’s made it popular is its affordable price and mobile app compatibility. (I believe it was one of the first to have iHome App controls.)

- 3-stage cleaning systems
- Loosen ; Lift ; Suction

A robot vacuum that works efficiently on any flooring?
The new Roborock S5 Robotic Vacuum is a super quiet, smart cleaner with advanced mopping and sweeping systems. All of its functions can be controlled using the mobile app – Mi Home App.
What I really like is how easily the S5 auto navigates your home – and using the mobile app you can plan + schedule cleaning sessions from anywhere.
⭐⭐ Best Robot Vacuum for Large Homes ⭐⭐
Roborock S5 comes w/ variable-speed side brush which runs between 130 RPM and 330 RPM (strong suction)
Built-in sweeping system enables maximum absorption of dust while the mopping mechanism is designed to avoid drip marks and water streaks.
S5 Vacuum has 2000Pa suction power — enables it to conform w/ different floor types (high suction is ideal for carpeting).
Battery capacity enables 150-mins of vacuuming.
RoboRock S5 is a little expensive, but very strong buyer reviews and mopping function make it one my favorite robot vacuums.
- Brand: Xiaomi Electronics
- Affordable: Fairly expensive
- Mopping function: Yes
- Vacuum battery: 150 mins (2.5 hours)
- Sweeping + Mopping
- Smart App control

If you want an affordable + highly-rated robovac, I recommend the WiFi connected Shark ION robot vacuum.
As the newest robotic vacuum to the Shark family, the ION vacuum comes w/ 2 spinning side brushes to suck-in debris from corners and edges.
Very solid at picking up hair – especially dog hair — one of the best robot vacuums for dog hair + dust. (if you’re allergic to dog or cat dander, this might be the robovac for you!)
⭐⭐ Best Robot Vacuum for Price Value ⭐⭐
Self-cleaning Brushroll is picks up long hair — sometimes gets tangled in other vacuums.
Similar to Roborock S5, this model, too, has smart navigation sensors that adapt to various surfaces and surrounding furniture.
Lithium Battery lets it operate 60-90 mins.
* FYI – the Shark ION is not available in some countries.
- Brand: Shark Vacuums
- Affordable: Yes
- Vacuum battery: 60-90 minutes (1.0-1.5 hours)
- WiFi enabled w/ mobile app
- Cleaning + scheduling w/ Amazon Alexa
- Self-cleaning, Performance brush roll
- Easy-empty dustbin
- Not the best robot vacuum for large carpeted areas
#10.) Roomba 960 Robot Vacuum
Slightly earlier version of the 980, the Roomba 960 comes w/ 90% of the functionality + more affordable.
Roomba 960 comes w/ powerful suction — it’ll auto detects type of flooring and can deliver 5X the suction power (mostly for carpets)
980 model includes 3-stage vacuuming system:
1. loosens debris
2. lifts using the suction/brushes
3. pulls debris up from the floor
What I like most about the Roomba 960 and 980 is the mobile app control – the iRobot Home App lets you schedule cleaning, clean specific rooms + receive realtime updates.
** FYI — Roomba 960 has 5x power suction; the Roomba 980 has 10x power suction.
For homes w/ lots of carpeting (or dogs!), I suggest the 980 model. You can read more here >>
