In today’s fast-paced world, many people are always on the go. At the same time, people are more connected than ever before, whether to each other via social media or to the devices around them. Why not use the former point of connectedness to solve one of the challenges from the latter? Automation has streamlined many tasks in our daily lives, especially when it comes to our jobs. In recent years, this has also begun to surround our personal lives. Xiaomi has been at the forefront of this movement in many aspects, but one that has easily stood out is the range of Xiaomi Robot Vacuum Cleaners.
We’ve seen in the previous month’s release that Xiaomi has been driving the integration of Smart Home Appliances, as well as offering improved technologies to keep you and your devices connected. Building on this ecosystem, the brand has also focused significantly on improving its range of robot vacuum cleaners that have already taken the market by storm.
Xiaomi has introduced its second-generation robot vacuums to the market with a range of options for every household and with different pricing options for various budgets. With many new competitors in the market to compete as well, the brand continues to push the boundaries of its technological advancements to offer consumers the best-in-class products, as well as options specifically designed for your requirements. Not only that, but the level of automation will also deliver better results overall, allowing you to continue with daily tasks, taking out one time-consuming aspect of your life without fuss.
Furthermore, another great aspect of the range of Xiaomi Robot Vacuum cleaners is its availability. It is now available on a broader scale in more stores, each with payment options to fit your pocket. This includes online stores such as Takealot, Tafelberg, FNB and Vodacom, as well as predominantly brick-and-mortar stores such as Yuppiechef and Incredible Connection.
First on the list is the affordable Xiaomi Robot Vacuum E10. The entry-level automatic vacuum cleaner provides all the features needed to keep your household clean across a range of surfaces, including tiles and carpets. It has an improved battery capacity and battery life over the original range while delivering better cleaning results.
In terms of its hardware specifications, it has a 2,600mAh battery, 200ml water capacity for mopping, 400ml dust box for collected dirt and a 4,000Pa suction on its vacuum capabilities. Additionally, it features a gyroscope navigation system, a 15mm climbing ability to scale carpet and tile rails, and three levels of water adjustment for your mopping requirements.
With its three levels of water usage and four levels of suction, users can customise their daily and weekly automated cleaning programme based on their requirements. For those days when you need that extra cleaning power, you can turn it up to the maximum. However, when all you need is to maintain the household, you can then adjust accordingly. All this can be automated via the integrated Mi App with the rest of your Xiaomi smart devices.
The Xiaomi Robot Vacuum E10 EU (BHR6783EU) has a recommended retail price of R4,499. This is a great entry-level price for an automated vacuum system that saves plenty of time for owners. The device is available across the country and can be found at the following retailers: Takealot, Tafelberg, FNB and Vodacom, Yuppiechef and Incredible Connection.
Xiaomi Robot Vacuum S10 EU (BHR5988EU)
Next is the Xiaomi Robot Vacuum S10 EU (BHR5988EU). The unit offers all the great benefits of the Robot Vacuum E10 with a few additional features of operation.
One of the biggest differences between the Robot Vacuum S10 over the E10 is its larger battery capacity. It features a 3,200mAh battery, allowing for over two hours of cleaning in standard mode before automatically heading back for a recharge.
The device includes high-quality parts, which include the side brush, main brush, dust box filter and more. It has multi-directional coordination for a complete and efficient cleaning solution. It does this by utilising an LDS laser navigation system to allow it to build a map of your household while cleaning. This makes it more efficient with each cleaning cycle.
In addition to the larger battery, it also features a larger dust box at 300ml, as well as a 170ml water tank. These additional features and specifications work well for users with larger households or a more frequent cleaning schedule.
Moving up the sliding scale even further is the Xiaomi Robot Vacuum S10+ EU (BHR6368EU). While the S10 was an improvement over the E10 with new features and expanding battery and tanks, the S10+ expands even further on this as somewhat of a booster package.
The unit has an even larger battery capacity of 5,200mAh to boost its cleaning duration significantly. With the S10 offering over two hours of cleaning uptime, the S10+ is closer to three hours before needing to recharge. Additionally, it also features a larger capacity dust tank to support the additional cleaning, now at 450ml, and with a 200ml water tank.
Furthermore, it offers features like 3D obstacle avoidance to accurately traverse its surroundings as it cleans. This avoids scratching any of your painted furniture or surfaces, as well as reducing its own risk of getting stuck. It can also continue to do its work in low-light conditions to keep up its cleaning schedule.
The unit weighs 3.8KG, which is fairly lightweight. It uses a zigzag cleaning path for optimised and efficient cleaning. It also has a slim design, which allows it to vacuum beneath many objects, including your bed. It has a height below 10cm, so anything with a higher clearance can be cleaned underneath.
Xiaomi Robot Vacuum Mop X10+ EU and Auto-Empty Station (BHR6363EU)
If you’re looking for a completely automated experience and budget isn’t a factor, look no further than the Xiaomi Robot Vacuum Mop X10+ with its Auto-Empty Station. The unit offers a premium experience for users thanks to its extraordinary cleaning capabilities.
For starters, the unit has an S-Cross AI Advanced 3D obstacle recognition and avoidance system with LDS navigation. It utilises the included hardware along with an AI algorithm to create a more accurate diagram of its surroundings. Not only is it capable of moving around the room with ease, but it can also avoid specific obstacles it recognises through the algorithms. This allows it to create a planned pathway around the home for better cleaning routes and reduced manual intervention during operation.
In creating a fully automated experience, The Xiaomi Robot Vacuum Mop X10+ has a smart, all-in-one station. Unlike the rest of the range, which only offers a charging station, the X10+ goes beyond. It offers a multi-dimension range of functions, including automatic dust collection, pad washing as well as hot drying and water refilling of the tank system.
Furthermore, the dust collection and dustbin emptying can be set to your desired frequency. The unit has a strong water blast to keep the tray clean and soaks the pads, rotating and scraping it at high speed to remove any stains. This is then followed by spin-drying for a spotless cleaning system.
The station has a built-in 2.5L dust bag, which can store up to 60 loads from the X10+ vacuum. After the X10+ has been washed, it has a minimum two-hour hot drying time to guarantee damp-free and odour-free freshness. This also ensures less transfer of bacteria and the like during the cleaning process around the house.
