eufy BoostIQ RoboVac 15C MAX
RoboVac Eufy 15c max is one of the leaders in the Anker range of robot vacuum cleaners. This model meets all the necessary requirements for robot cleaners to provide quality cleaning.
Eufy 15c max supports Wi-Fi connection and voice control, charges independently, and cleans any surface from hard floors to medium-pile carpets.
This black ultra-thin vacuum cleaner can increase the suction power from 1300Pa to 2000Pa thanks to BoostIQ technology, still ensuring quiet cleaning.

The Eufy RoboVac 15c Max is an affordable, almost entry-level robot vacuum that can be controlled from your smartphone, or via your home’s smart speaker.
It doesn’t have the bells and whistles of more advanced robot vacuums (it can’t learn the layout of your house, for example), but it does offer Wi-Fi connectivity, a companion app and a slimline profile, allowing it to easily maneuver itself around (and sometimes under) furniture.
Another key draw of the RoboVac 15c Max is its relatively quiet running, making much less noise than traditional up-right vacuums – which our cats certainly appreciated during our time with it.
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.
Remote, app and voice control
In the box you’ll find the Eufy RoboVac 15c Max comes with a remote control (and two AAA batteries to pop inside it), allowing you to start a clean without having to get up. You do, however, have to be in your home for it to work.
The good news though, is the RoboVac 15c Max also has a smartphone application allowing you to control it both at home . When you’re away (by connecting the vacuum to your home Wi-Fi network).
You’ll need to download the free Eufy Home app . (Which can also be used to control the company’s other smart home devices, such as smart light bulbs) . And follow the simple on-screen instructions to set up and name your robot vacuum.
Once set up, you then have a variety of options to play with. There are four clean modes to choose from (also available on the bundled remote control).
The first is auto clean, which will see the Eufy RoboVac 15c Max set off for a cleaning session . Where it will determine when it’s time to return home, or if its battery is running low.
If you don’t want your robot vacuum zipping around for an extended period. You can choose a 30 minute quick clean, while the other two modes are a little more limited.
Spot cleaning mode can be used if you’ve got a particular area that needs a clean. Select the spot mode, and place the vacuum in the middle of the spill. It will then take a spiral path from its starting point and work its way outward, to suck up the spillage.
The final mode is Edge cleaning, which will see the RoboVac 15c Max track along walls only for 20 minutes before returning to base.
In auto cleaning mode we noticed it wasn’t great at getting up close to walls consistently. And the circular design means it can’t really get into corners properly either.
You then have the choice of three power modes, with standard (low), BoostIQ (medium) and maximum (high) to pick from. The higher you go, the louder the RoboVac 15c Max gets and the more energy it will consume.
For the ultimate hands-free experience however. You can also link the Eufy Home app to Google Assistant or Amazon Alexa. Allowing you to bark commands at your smart speaker to get the RoboVac to start or stop cleaning.
