When speaking of wireless vacuum cleaners, the Dyson brand is certainly the first thing that comes to mind. Compared to the long and limited traditional vacuum cleaners, the compact, stylish and unconstrained wireless vacuum cleaners became the love of the tidemakers. And Dyson has had almost a dominant position in this field. However, like many top brands, the general price of Dyson wireless vacuum cleaners is above 3,000 yuan. For many families, there is indeed some luxury. Recently, Xiaomi’s science and technology eco-chain company Roidmi Technology has become a successful disruptor in this field, introducing a hand-held wireless vacuum cleaner with a strong suction and a long life but at the half price tag. Right now we are going to find out what key features the Xiaomi Roidmi Handheld Wireless Vacuum Cleaner comes with and whether it is a worthy alternative to the Dyson cleaners.
The Xiaomi Roidmi Handheld Wireless Vacuum Cleaner has just ended the crowdfunding campaign and obtained support from more than 12,000 users. The crowd-raising rate reached 6141%, and the amount reached more than 18 million yuan. A for Roidmi, people have been familiar with car accessories only coming our way from this brand. They include air purifiers and car chargers. In fact, this wireless cleaner is actually very helpful for internal cleaning of cars as well.
Xiaomi Roidmi Handheld Wireless Vacuum Cleaner Box Content
The box includes the cleaner itself, a set of roller heads (including a soft fleece roller and a carbon fiber roller brush), a multi-function brush (a collection of long flat suction), an extension hose, a metal connecting rod, and a wall suction fixed box, a cleaning brush, a filter cartridge, and a power charging adapter.
First, let’s take a look at the host. The machine’s largest weight is here, including the motor and dust cup. However, due to the 270° large handle design, the grip is still very comfortable. The mainframe design is simple, elegant, in a pure white color, and sleek body.
The dismantling of the dust cup is very easy, and it is very easy to remove the dust cup by pressing and holding the release button at the end of the dust cup. The dust cup capacity is about 0.4L. That’s not that large. So do not forget to clean up the internal debris in time when cleaning. Of course, when the cleaner is connected to the APP, it will also intelligently remind the status of the dust box.
When the dust is poured, only the tail cover needs to be opened. It’s a single-hand operation and won’t require many efforts. The other end of the dust cup is blocked by a HEPA filter. The latter can filter out particles as small as 0.3 microns. Generally, it can be cleaned with a brush, or it can be washed. One more is included in the package. It’s recommended to replace it every 3 months.
The filter element can be pulled out through the two plastic bulges on the edge. Only after that, the internal dust separator can be seen. The outside of the dust separator has a preliminary layer of metal mesh filter, and then enters the inside to separate the particles from the gas. Actually, the dust settles to the bottom of the dust cup. The air is filtered through the filter core and the polymer sponge. The purification rate can reach 99%. Not in vain, the company has been specializing in making air purifiers.
The Xiaomi Roidmi Handheld Wireless Vacuum Cleaner uses a brushless digital motor with a speed of up to 100,000 rpm. The power of the whole machine is up to 415W, and the effective suction power can reach 115W. So we can say it doesn’t yield Dyson in terms of power. At the same time, a multi-level tornado air duct system has been designed to match the high-power motors and generate a suction force. In this mode, the motor high-speed rotating air volume reaches 1100 liters per minute. It can even produce up to 18,500 Pa of centrifugal air pressure and efficiently adsorb particles on the ground.
Brush Head Experience
The cleaner comes with the most common brush head for cleaning the ground. There are two kinds of internal roller brushes. One is a built-in soft roller brush, which can be used for floor tiles, wooden floor, and other surfaces. But it can’t be used to clean the carpet. Another optional brush head is a carbon fiber brush that can be used to clean floor tiles, carpets, and short-groomed carpets.
There are two buttons on the handle. One of them is the power button, while the second one is the suction switch button. The Xiaomi Roidmi Handheld Wireless Vacuum Cleaner has two different modes: standard and strong.
The standard soft fleece roller brush is wrapped by two imported nylon fibers (soft and hard). The overall cleaning effect is still very satisfactory. All kinds of particles and paper scraps can be easily cleaned. Plus, it comes with a multi-angle flexible rotation design. Thanks to it and a 6.6cm thin design, you can easily drill into the sofa, bed bottom, and other furniture. In addition, the floor brush comes with a sensor LED lighting. So in the dark environment, it will automatically open helping users to see the bottom of the furniture.
The multi-functional brush aka sofa suction can be used to clean sofa seats, closets, windowsills and all types of dust on the countertops.
In addition, the multi-purpose brush also incorporates a long flat suction and is used after the brush head is removed. The long flat suction is suitable for cleaning small gaps such as doors and windows, stairs and dead corners.
The corners that are difficult to reach can be cleaned after using extension hoses.
The portable wireless vacuum cleaner can easily absorb the footprints inside the car, decorate the fabric of dirt, while cleaning up allergens such as fungi and bacteria, giving the family a healthy interior clean environment.
Xiaomi Roidmi Handheld Wireless Vacuum Cleaner Endurance
The Xiaomi Roidmi Handheld Wireless Vacuum Cleaner is packed with a built-in LG/Samsung lithium battery. A single maximum lifetime is 55 minutes, and the cleaning area can reach about 350 square meters. But when it is working in the super mode it can provide about 10 minutes of battery life. The battery power can be observed through the light on the body, or in the APP. If it is almost discharged, you will get a notification.
Xiaomi Roidmi Handheld Wireless Vacuum Cleaner Storage
The Xiaomi Roidmi Handheld Wireless Vacuum Cleaner has a magnetic holder designed for wall suction and transparent wall stickers that can handle complex wall surfaces and environments. In addition, the wall suction side is designed with a charging line card slot, which can also prevent the power cord from being entangled while fixing the charging. This is an awesome design when taking into account the combining of storage and charging into one.
It’s not difficult to guess the Xiaomi Roidmi Handheld Wireless Vacuum Cleaner can be connected to the APP (Mijia) via Bluetooth. Besides viewing data such as the remaining power, cleaning time, dust box reminder, and filter replacement, the users can also see the calorie consumption index and cleaning campaign combination.
Generally, the Xiaomi Roidmi Handheld Wireless Vacuum Cleaner stands out due to its simple-yet-elegant design. By the way, it has won the iF design award. But we are dealing with a cleaner. So it should provide a satisfactory performance in this sense, first. Honestly, this cleaner comes with abundant suction tips, a wide range of user choices, and sufficient suction power. The battery inside is capable of a life sufficient for a daily cleaning. But what we liked most is the combination of storage and charging into one. All these features sound quite good, but the selling point of the Xiaomi Roidmi Handheld Wireless Vacuum Cleaner is its pricing. The crowdfunding price is 1,499 yuan ($235).
