Kyvol Cybovac E30 Robot Vacuum review
Now, a final result of over half the battery life estimate may seem like a disappointment, and to some extent it was, but that’s far longer than we’ve experienced from Kyvol’s competitors, which are more expensive.
The dustbin was full after every cleaning session, with the vacuum traversing over roughly 1,700 square feet of a mix of carpet and linoleum, leaving very little, if anything, behind.
Vacuuming is one of those chores that needs to get done, but it always feels like one that gets tossed in the pushed back category. That’s why robot vacuums were invented, right? At least that’s what we keep telling ourselves.
You don’t have to worry about the E30 falling down stairs, thanks to sensors on the front of the housing. Similar sensors are also used to detect magnetic strips that come in the box, telling the vacuum a specific area is off-limits. For example, you can place a magnetic strip across an entryway if there’s a room you want it to stay out of or under a couch if it can get stuck.
Kyvol touts up to 150-minute battery life, but we never reached that number in our testing. In fact, the longest single cleaning session we monitored was 75 minutes, with the battery at 16%. In comparison, the Roomba 675 (a $249.99 robot vacuum) lasts for only about 70 minutes before needing a recharge. We also found the Kyvol to be a bit quieter, although it’s not silent; a vacuum does need a motor to work.
