Each model has the same sized battery with the same milliamp hours and both boast a runtime of up to 100 minutes (under perfect conditions). Besides, the Eufy and the Ecovacs Deebot rely on their sensors only for navigation and do not have a mapping ability.
Knowing the specifications can help your decision. Knowing what those specs mean in detail is even better.
Both of the robots use a 2600mAH battery pack that will propel each vacuum for up to 100 minutes. Note that when you are using the robots at home, you will have varying amounts of carpeting, different types of hard flooring, more obstacles, furniture and, of course, dirt.
It’s a good news that even at 85 percent, the battery is usually enough to clean an entire home. If your floor plan is under 1400 square feet of all hard flooring, or under 1100 square feet of hard flooring and carpet, either robot shouldn’t have a problem cleaning everything in one charge.
Both of the robots will return to the charging dock when their batteries drop below 15 percent. This means that for a full battery charge you are only getting 85 to 90 percent of the battery used for cleaning.
For those lucky homes, the robot will finish cleaning and return to the docking station, recharge and be ready to go the next time you need to send it out.
However, you should note that neither the Eufy 11S nor the Ecovacs Deebot N79S will automatically resume cleaning after the batteries have recharged. If there is still floor space to clean, you will have to tell the robot to get back to work manually.
Bottom Line: This round is a tie, both vacuums use the same type and size batteries.
The only control option that both the 11s and the N79S have in common is that they both have local controls or buttons on the machine itself to tell it what to do. Both have a single button that will turn on the robot on the first push and send it out to clean using the automatic cleaning cycle on the second press.
There, the similarities stop. The Eufy 11S equipped with an infrared remote control to start, stop, pause or resume a cleaning cycle. You can also send the robot back to the charging station to recharge the batteries. To do that, you must stop the cleaning cycle before pressing the home button.
In terms of remote control, the Eufy 11s has an LCD sreen shows date and time, as well as scheduling periods you already created.
For mode selection options, you can choose to have the robot do an automatic cleaning cycle which. This results in a sporadic cleaning pattern that eventually covers the entire floor. Besides, you can select spot cleaning mode for heavily soiled areas. The robot will concentrate on a single spot, spiraling outward to about a two-foot radius deep cleaning that area. Lastly, the edge cleaning mode will force the robot to find the wall and run along the baseboards of your home cleaning.
On the other side, The Ecovacs N79S uses wireless communications to connect to your home network then sync the mobile app on your phone to the robot and control it that way. Though the mobile app isn’t the greatest, but it gets the job done. You will be able to select all the same cleaning modes that the Eufy has: automatic, spot cleaning and edge cleaning.
You can also start, pause, resume or cancel a cycle in progress or make the robot return to the charging station. The apps also allows you to activate max cleaning mode, which increases the motor speed. You will see the status of the robot and the battery charge level as well. You will also have the opportunity to create, edit or delete a cleaning schedule.
