Compare Ecovacs Vacuuming Robots: Deebot 35, Deebot 63S, Deebot 79 and Deebot M82
If you're considering getting an Ecovacs Deebot floor cleaning robot, you may find this article useful in helping you with selecting the right Deebot robot for your home.
Ecovacs makes two types of Deebot floor cleaning robots: those that are used strictly for vacuuming and those that can be used for both vacuuming and mopping. Note that Ecovacs has produced a large number of robots in each of these two categories, and therefore, to simplfy your task of choosing the right robot for your needs, we will only consider the most popular ones bought by Amazon customers.
Note the following:
This article will focus on Deebot robots that can only vacuum. If you are interested in a comparison of Deebot robots that can both vacuum and mop, please click:

Comparing the Deebot Vacuuming Robots Deebot 35, 63S, 79 and M82
The following table compares the various features that come with the four Deebot vacuuming robots (please read the explanations to the table notes that follow for a better understanding of the features):
Table Notes 1 - 19 Explained:
Bare floors could be any of wood, laminate, tile or marble.
For effective vacuuming, carpets need to be low pile.
Low profile vacuuming robots with smaller heights can go better under low lying furniture.
Deebot 35 has no main agitator brush. It uses direct suction, and therefore, it works best on bare floors.
Deebot 63S and Deebot 79 suction is done via the main agitator brush which makes them clean efficiently not just bare floors, but carpets as well.
Deebot M82 gives you the option of using the robot with or without the main agitator brush. When using on bare floors, the brush can be removed, and when vacuuming carpets, it can be reinserted.
Deebot 35 has only a single cleaning mode which is automatic. It is a simple-to-use robot that operates with just the press of a button telling it to clean bare floors. In automatic mode, the robot cleans in a straight line and changes direction when it detects or meets an obstacle.
Deebot 63S and Deebot 79 have 4 cleaning modes:
- AUTO Mode: This is the most commonly used mode. In AUTO mode, the robot cleans in a straight line and changes direction when it meets an obstacle. If the robot detects a lot of dust during its initial route, it will change its path to fan-shaped or spiral route.
- INTENSIVE Mode: This mode is good for aggressive cleaning or for extremely dirty or dusty floors. In this mode, the robot is more sensitive to dirt and dust, follows the same cleaning pattern as in AUTO mode, but performs a more thorough cleaning. In INTENSIVE mode, the dust sensors sensitivity is increased, so cleaning is more efficient. Note that when cleaning a small area like corners or a hallway in INTENSIVE or AUTO modes, the robot will automatically conduct a “zigzag” pattern and then will return to the previous mode to continue cleaning.
- EDGE Mode: This mode is good for cleaning the edges and corners of a room. In EDGE mode, the robot cleans along a border (e.g. wall).
- SPOT Mode: This mode is applicable for an area of highly concentrated dirt or dust. In SPOT mode, the robot focuses on a specific area to clean and operates in a “zigzag” pattern from left to right.
- MAX mode: In addition to the 4 modes described above, Deebot M82 has also a MAX suction mode: pressing the MAX button will boost suction for exceptional cleaning.
The Deebot 79 charging station features an integrated handheld canister vacuum which is removable with the touch of a single button and allows you to clean surfaces where the robot can not reach, such as above the floor and in the car. Seven accessories are included.
The handheld canister that comes with Deebot 79 has a capacity of 47.3 ounces.
Each Deebot robot is equipped with sensors to detect objects in its path and navigate around them while cleaning. If the object is very low to the ground (1.5” or smaller in height), the robot may gently touch it with cushion bumper rail before turning around to protect walls, furniture and other household items.
All Deebot robots are specially equipped with sensors that enable them to constantly interpret the terrain. This gives these robots intelligence to clean up-to and around stairs, or any drop-off greater than 3 inches, without the risk of falling.
Using the dust sensors and the built-in Intelligent Dust Detection Technology, Deebot 63S, 79 and M82 robots constantly monitor the levels of dust and debris in its environment and automatically adjust to the most effective cleaning method.
- Deebot 35 is equipped with a single control button that is used to start and stop the robot and to schedule it. Note that all robot functions can be accessed from the remore-control device.
- Deebot M82 is equipped with a single control button that is used to start and stop the robot. Note that all robot functions can be accessed from the remore-control device.
- Deebot 63S and Deebot 79 are equipped with touch control panels. The Deebot 63S panel is simpler and provides access to fewer control commands and indications than the Deebot 79 panel. Those control commands that can not be accessed on the Deebot 63S touch panel can be accessed from its remote-control device. Note that for both robots, all functions can also be accessed from the remore-control device. Deebot 63S and Deebot 79 touch panels are shown below:
All four robots come with a remote-control device that allow scheduling of the robot as well as selection of the cleaning modes.
Deebot 79 is the world’s first self-emptying robot that automatically empties itself, rather than having a human do it, after every cleaning. To achieve this, the hand-held vacuum canister is used also as the dust repository: indeed, the charging dock of Deebot 79 was designed so the hand-held canister rests on top. When the robot finishes cleaning, or its battery gets low, it returns to the charging dock to recharge itself. Once it docks successfully, it automatically empties its own dust bin into the handheld vacuum canister which has a capacity of 47.3 ounces (more than 4 times the capacity of the robot dust bin). This means the robot can empty the dustbin contents 4 times into the handheld vacuum canister before human intervention to empty the canister is required. The following picture shows the docked Deebot 79 robot emptying its dustbin to the handheld vacuuming canister:
Deebot 79 is made of a robotic vacuum and a detachable handheld canister vacuum providing you with 3-dimensional cleaning ability. The handheld canister fits on top of the charging station and is removable with the touch of a single button and allows you to clean any surface in your home no matter the size, shape or location (above floors surfaces, the car, etc.).
With all four robots considered here, when the robot finishes cleaning, or its battery gets low, it returns to the charging dock to recharge itself.
Note that Deebot 79 can also empty its dust bin while at the charging dock.
HEPA stands for High Efficiency Particulate Air and is a filter that can remove more than 99.97% of dust particles as small as 0.3 micron leaving fresher and healthier air behind.
All four robots allow scheduling to automatically vacuum every day of the week.
All four robots allow canceling of the scheduling.
The four robots make an audible buzz to indicate that something has gone wrong.
Ni-MH stands for Nickel–Metal Hydride and is a type of rechargeable battery.
mAh stands for milliamp-hour and is used to distinguish the strength or capacity of a battery. The higher the mAh, the longer the battery will last.
So which of the four Deebot vacuuming robots to choose?
- If you are looking for a basic vacuuming robot for bare floors that can effectively vacuum food crumbs, pet hair and debris, that is very simple to operate and that is affordable, don't look further than the D35.
- If you also need to vacuum carpets and still looking for an affordable simple to use robot with some additional sophistication such as intelligent cleaning modes and remote control device, then you might want to consider the D63S.
- If you want a robot that auto empties its dustbin, is equipped for vacuuming above floor surfaces, and comes with sophisticated features such as intelligent dust detection and rich touch panel , you should choose either the Deebot 79.
- Finally, if you want to be able to remove at times the main agitator brush for direct suction to provide a tangle free vacuum in environments full of pet hair, you should consider Deebot M82 which also has a MAX mode which increases the suction power, a feature not available with the other three robots considered here.
