The yeedi K650 is a budget-friendly robot vacuum. It performs very well on bare floors but doesn't do as well on carpets, where it has a hard time clearing small debris like baking soda. The battery performance is fantastic, with a maximum life of nearly four hours, and it has a good-sized dirt compartment for a robot vacuum. It works with a companion app, but its automation features are fairly basic. You can make a cleaning schedule and adjust the power mode, but unfortunately, it lacks a smart pathing feature and tends to miss some spots and bump into obstacles.

Our Verdict

7.8 Bare Floor

The yeedi K650 is very good on bare floors. It easily clears most pet hair, small debris, and bulky material from bare surfaces. As its dirt compartment fills, it struggles a bit more with large debris like cereal. It feels sturdily-built, has an okay-sized dustbin, and maneuvers itself reasonably well. However, its maintenance needs are demanding, and it incurs high recurring costs.

Pros
  • Good build quality.
  • Fantastic battery life.
  • Easily clears most pet hair and debris.
Cons
  • Demanding maintenance needs and high recurring costs.
  • Sometimes bumps into obstacles.
5.8 Low-Pile Carpet

The yeedi K650 is disappointing on low-pile carpets. It does best with larger debris like sand but struggles more with pet hair and fine debris like baking soda. It's also hard to maintain and incurs high recurring costs. On the upside, it's well-built and has a decently-sized dirt compartment.

Pros
  • Good build quality.
  • Fantastic battery life.
Cons
  • Demanding maintenance needs and high recurring costs.
  • Sometimes bumps into obstacles.
  • Struggles with fine debris like baking soda.
6.6 High-Pile Carpet

The yeedi K650 is okay at cleaning high-pile carpets. It can climb onto and move around on high-pile carpets and picks up a fair amount of bigger debris like sand. However, it has more of an issue picking up pet hair and especially fine material like baking soda. It also incurs high recurring costs and is difficult to maintain. On the upside, it feels sturdy.

Pros
  • Good build quality.
  • Fantastic battery life.
  • Can maneuver on high-pile carpets.
Cons
  • Demanding maintenance needs and high recurring costs.
  • Sometimes bumps into obstacles.
  • Struggles with fine debris like baking soda.
6.1 Pets

The yeedi K650 isn't bad at cleaning up pet hair. It performs best on bare surfaces, where it easily clears most pet hair. It picks up a good amount of hair from carpets, although it might require a few passes to properly clean those surfaces. It also incurs high recurring costs and can be tricky to maintain, but on the plus side, it's well-built and maneuvers itself fairly well.

Pros
  • Good build quality.
  • Fantastic battery life.
Cons
  • No allergen-trapping HEPA filter.
  • Demanding maintenance needs and high recurring costs.
6.1 Stairs

The yeedi K650 is a robot vacuum and isn't suitable for cleaning stairs.

Build Quality

The yeedi K650 has a good build quality. It's mostly made of matte-finish hard plastic, with a glossy top and rubber-treaded wheels. Most of it seems sturdy, but the grey plastic dustbin feels like it might break if dropped. On top, there's a small Wi-Fi indicator light and a button you can use to start and stop a cleaning cycle. The vacuum arrives mostly assembled, and you just need to snap the two side brushes into place and plug in the docking station.

User Maintenance

The yeedi K650 robot vacuum can be tricky to maintain. It has several parts that need to be removed and serviced regularly, but luckily they're all easy to access.

  • Brushroll: This can be accessed by removing the brushroll compartment door and pulling out the brushroll. It should be cleaned by removing tangles with the cleaning tool once a week.
  • Side brushes: You can pull these out of their sockets by hand. Use the cleaning tool to cut away any tangled hair every two weeks.
  • Dustbin: The dustbin can be removed by pressing the release button. It should be emptied into a garbage can after each use. You can also rinse it with water, but be sure to allow it to dry completely before replacing it.
  • Filter net: This is located inside the dirt compartment lid. The manufacturer doesn't specify exactly how often it should be maintained, but you can use the cleaning tool to dust it off whenever you empty the dustbin.
  • Filters: The filters should be cleaned once a week, and can be removed by unclipping the filter cover release button located on the dustbin lid. To clean the high-efficiency filter, simply tap it over a garbage can. The sponge filter can be washed with water and should be allowed to dry completely before going back into the vacuum.
  • Front wheel: The front wheel can be pulled out of the socket by hand, although it can be difficult and you may want to use a tool. Once a week, use the cleaning tool to remove any tangled hair and other debris.
  • Sensors and charging pads: These are easy to access on the vacuum and charging dock. They can be cleaned by wiping with a dry cloth once a week.

The yeedi K650 has quite a few parts that need to be replaced regularly, so it incurs high recurring costs.

  • Filters: The sponge filter and high-efficiency filter should be replaced every three to six months.
  • Side brushes: The manufacturer recommends replacing these every three to six months.
  • Brushroll: The brushroll needs to be replaced every six to 12 months.

Replacement brushrolls and side brushes are available from yeedi's online store.

The yeedi K650's battery performance is fantastic. If you set it to its most powerful 'Max+' mode, it lasts for roughly 50 minutes. That stretches to nearly four hours of continuous cleaning time if you use 'Quiet' mode, exceeding the maximum cleaning time of 130 minutes that the manufacturer advertises.

The vacuum takes roughly two hours to charge completely, although yeedi recommends allowing it to charge for roughly five hours before using it the first time.

The light on top will blink white when it's charging and turn solid when it's fully charged, cleaning, or on standby. It will turn red for any errors, and turn off when the vacuum is shut off or out of battery.

The yeedi K650 does an adequate job of maneuvering itself. It uses a random cleaning pattern and can miss some spots, notably in the middle of a room, but still provides good coverage overall. It can climb onto and move around on high-pile rugs and fits under low furniture like couches and coffee tables but tends to bump into obstacles, including its own charging dock. It also gets stuck on rugs with tassels, but not on electrical cords, although it can push and drag them around.

If you're looking for a robot vacuum that uses smart pathing and cleans in a more organized pattern, take a look at the Wyze Robot Vacuum.

App Name
yeedi

The yeedi K650 has okay automation features. You can use the companion app to manually set the power setting and cleaning mode. You can also have the vacuum return to its docking station, create cleaning schedules, see when parts need to be replaced, and view a cleaning log. You can't set virtual boundaries, but you can separately buy magnetic boundary strips to keep it out of certain areas, although we haven't tested that feature. There's also a "Find my Robot" feature that tells the vacuum to make a noise so you can tell where it is. Consider the yeedi vac station if you're looking for a robot vacuum with more advanced automation features.

It's compatible with Amazon Alexa devices, which allows you to control it with voice commands. You can also use the button on top to start and stop a cleaning session without an internet connection.

Differences Between Sizes And Variants

The yeedi K650 is available in one color variant, 'White'. You can see the label for the unit we tested here. If you come across any other variants, please let us know if the discussions so we can update our review.

Compared To Other Vacuums

The yeedi K650 is a budget robot vacuum. On bare floors, it easily clears pet hair and debris, outperforming many similarly-priced robots that we've tested, like the iRobot Roomba 692. However, it's not as good on carpets, where it struggles with fine debris like baking soda. It has fantastic battery life and a spacious dirt compartment for a robot vacuum, but cleans rooms in a random pattern and sometimes misses spots or bumps into obstacles. If you want to see more options, check out our lists of the best budget robot vacuums, the best robot vacuums, and the best robotic vacuums for hardwood floors.

Roborock E4
