Two of eufy’s most recent robot vacuum releases—the RoboVac X8 and RoboVac X8 Hybrid—have set a higher standard for robots everywhere. Both of them can handle all sorts of debris without trouble, and they feature high-tech navigation systems that do a lot more than keep them out of trouble.
So, if you’re on the fence about deciding between one or the other, we’ve come to help you. Today, we’re going to compare the RoboVac X8 and the X8 Hybrid to show on which points they differ.
Similarities Between X8 and X8 Hybrid
Before we go over how the two Eufy robot vacuum cleaners differ, we think it’s important to see which specs and features they share, which is quite a lot.
Built into both robots are twin motors that produce 2,000 Pa of suction power each. The two motors and turbines work in conjunction to extract the tiniest speck of dust out of carpet fibers and between floorboards and tiles.
What’s more, both X-series models come with a handy floating brush roll studded with bristles and rubber flippers that constantly stay in contact with the surface of your floor. Combined with unrivaled suction performance, Eufy claims that these robots can loosen and lift nearly 60% more hair per pass than their predecessors.
UltraPack Dust-Compression System
The dustbin is designed in such a way as to store suctioned debris in the farthest recesses before filling up any other cavities. This is mainly due to the extraordinary suction power, which pulls in dust particles and compacts them before removing air through their oversized vents. The primary goal is to reduce the frequency of emptying the dustbin out, which is a must-have since neither of these robots comes with a self-emptying base.
The X8 and X8 Hybrid use laser navigation to do more than just avoid cliffs and obstacles. During their initial run, they map out the layout of your home and store the map in their memory with near-100% accuracy. They can also store multiple maps, allowing you to move them from floor to floor without having to do another preliminary scan.
With the help of the EufyHome smartphone app, you can access these digital maps to create virtual barriers (no-go zones) and utilize selective-room cleaning. Each room in the map is color-coded and has adjustable barriers, allowing you to easily send your robot to different areas of your home with a single tap.
180-Minute Runtime with Resume Function
Inside of each X series robot is a massive 5,200-mAh battery that supplies up to three hours of cleaning per charge. It takes nearly five hours to recharge the bot, but thanks to the auto-recharge function, you won’t even notice it. In addition, the Eufy X8 and Eufy X8 Hybrid will also resume their cleaning session if they have to stop midway to refuel.

Differences Between X8 and X8 Hybrid
As you can see, the X8 and X8 Hybrid are identical in nearly every way. So, how do they differ?
The Eufy X8 is a vacuum-only bot, whereas the X8 Hybrid is a 2-in-1 vacuum and mop combo. The X8 Hybrid comes with a mop attachment, a waterproof pad, a reusable microfiber mop pad, and several disposable pads. To activate the mop mode, simply attach the 250-ml water tank to the robot’s underside. It will automatically switch between vacuum and mop modes depending on the surface it’s currently cleaning. Like most mop bots, the X8 Hybrid merely wipes floors with a moistened pad, so there’s no actual scrubbing involved.
The X8 comes with a 600-ml dustbin, whereas the X8 Hybrid’s dustbin is limited to just 450 ml. The difference in dustbin capacities is mainly due to the X8 Hybrid’s water tank, which sits flush underneath the dustbin. However, there is a clear difference in how long in how much time it takes for their respective dustbins to reach max capacity. Thankfully, UltraPack Dust-Compression does a lot to alleviate much of the hassle of frequently emptying out the X8 Hybrid’s bin.

Not that aesthetics matter a ton, but one way you can distinguish the X8 from the X8 Hybrid is by the color accents on their tempered glass top panels. The X8 comes with blue and pinkish accents, which are cooler than the dual gold accents on the X8 Hybrid (in our opinion).

So, if you’re still unsure of whether to get the RoboVac X8 or X8 Hybrid, consider this: they both belong in the same price range, but the X8 Hybrid can perform two functions in one go. While the mopping function isn’t as effective as a human, it does a decent job at removing moist spills and removing any debris the Twin Turbines might have missed. If the majority of your floors are covered in carpets, then the X8 is clearly the robot to go with.
