When Ecovacs finds ways to improve upon its robotic vacuum technology, it wastes no time rolling out those upgrades in the form of a new model. When the Ecovacs Deebot 711 was released, the inclusion of rubber blades on the bristled brushroll and the addition of an optical sensor made the 711 one of Ecovacs’ most powerful, efficient models.

Ecovacs DEEBOT 711 vs. 711S

Deebot 711

Although the Deebot 711’s runtime is lengthy at 110 minutes, Ecovacs wanted to push it over the 2-hour mark. A smart move considering the average square footage of new-construction homes has grown. Hence, the recently launched Deebot 711S. The 711S’ battery lasts for 20 extra minutes, yet the robot retains all the 711’s best features.
