Yuffi introduced a pair of new vacuums emphasizing suction power at the all-virtual CES 2021 event this morning.
First up is the Eufy RoboVac L80 Laser Navigation Robot Vacuum Cleaner, which aims to be a serious player in the robot vacuum market this year. This vacuum brings laser navigation and infrared sensors to your carpet. Cleaning modes include spot cleaning, single-room navigation, zone cleaning, and an auto mode.
One of the more effective techniques manufactured in vacuum is found in twin turbines that provide 2,000 suction each. There is an 80% increase in airflow compared to the previous model. Combine that with the Smart Navigation mode, and it marks a great advance in Yufi’s robot vacuum offerings. The design and incorporation of twin turbines also makes it an audience among the robots currently being built in the market.
We recently reviewed the Eufy RoboVac G30 Hybrid, and the L80 addresses one of our primary concerns. In particular, the G30 ships with magnetic tape you use to shut down not to clean rooms or areas. The L80 does this with real-time multiflor mapping, and the app allows you to designate areas that are off limits. This is a much more sophisticated solution than magnetic tape.
The Eufy L80 comes in two variants – the L80 and L80 Hybrid, which also have mapping capabilities. Both run at around 60 decibels. Both are a full centimeter taller than the Eufy G30 Hybrid, which can affect the ability of the vacuole to get under couches, kickplates, and the like, but we get our hands on these models after our full review Will save for Overall, this is a great upgrade from the G30, providing more intelligent navigation and more powerful suction.
Eufy wrapped up a minor look at another smart lock device, the Eufy Security Smart Lock Touch, which was announced last year. It is essentially the same model with a fingerprint reader, security code, app, and traditional key access, but now features Wi-Fi for true remote access when away from your home network. This now allows it to work properly with Google Assistant, and uses autoclock, Bluetooth unlocking, and a full year on a set of batteries.
The new version of the Uffi Smart Lock Touch will be released sometime in February with a $ 250 price point, while the Uffi Robovac L80 is slated for a June release. Pricing for the robot vacuum remains to be finalized.
