What we like about the Yeedi Vac Max
It’s a pretty good navigator
When it comes to robot vacuums, we weigh navigation more heavily than suction power, because a robot vacuum can't clean where its brushes haven't been.
During its testing run on our robot vacuum obstacle course in our labs, the Yeedi Vac Max finished cleaning in under 15 minutes, which is pretty quick. For example, the iRobot j7+ took around 20 minutes to complete the same course.
The Yeedi Vac Max never got stuck or crashed into anything, common for more affordable models, but it also didn't perform as well as its cousin, the Yeedi K650, shying away from some of the more challenging obstacles in our testing course.
All said and done, the Yeedi Vac Max is a pretty good navigator.
It has a decent app
The Yeedi app is pretty simple to set up.
Once active, you can start your robot vacuum remotely and it keeps a record of cleaning jobs, and this is a standard function of most robot vac apps.
What sets the Yeedi apart from its competitors in this price range is the virtual map. The Vac Max can create a virtual map of your floor plan, and from there, you can set virtual boundaries or command it to clean specific areas.
What we don’t like about the Yeedi Vac Max
It’s not particularly powerful
Overall, we found the Yeedi’s cleaning prowess to be lacking when we tested it.
On average, it picked up 6.5 grams of debris per cleaning run. For comparison, our top-rated robot vacuums pick up between 9 grams and 11 grams, an amount that allows them to keep up with a full-sized vacuum over the course of a week.
The Yeedi Vac Max’s performance puts it in a lower tier.
The mop is an unnecessary add-on
The Yeedi Vac Max comes with a mop that just feels superfluous. It’s a dusting mop only, so don’t expect it to clean up stuck-on messes like the iRobot Braava M6.
You might as well either get a dedicated robot mop or go for a higher-end two-in-one combo like the Ecovacs T8.
What users are saying about the Yeedi Vac Max
Out of 812 ratings on Amazon, 544 of them are 5-star. Users cite liking the simple operation and the good floor coverage. On the flip side, some consumers are disappointed in the suction power and are frustrated by the app.
Should you buy the Yeedi Vac Max?
No—the price is nice, but there’s little value
When it comes right down to it, a robot vacuum is meant to clean and just too many of the Yeedi Vac Max’s competitors outpace it.

Jonathan Chan currently serves as the Lab Manager at Reviewed. If you clean with it, it's likely that Jon oversees its testing. Since joining the Reviewed in 2012, Jon has helped launch the company's efforts in reviewing laptops, vacuums, and outdoor gear. He thinks he's a pretty big deal. In the pursuit of data, he's plunged his hands into freezing cold water, consented to be literally dragged through the mud, and watched paint dry. Jon demands you have a nice day.
