If you think about the fact that Xiaomi has poco more than 10 years and is much younger than other giants such as Samsung and Apple, and then you consider the fact that despite his young age he is there to compete with the most "elderly" in the technology sector, one can only come to the conclusion that in recent years the Chinese giant has given its best, doing a great job.
And one of the weapons that allowed the company to achieve these results, goes beyond the simple world of smartphones and points to a concept that first Apple, then Samsung have started to follow (albeit in a different way): the ecosystem. And already, because by now we know that Xiaomi does not only produce devices like the excellent Mi 11 (of which you can find our review here), but - also thanks to a whole series of satellite companies - now it sells all kinds of devices, including accessories for smart home automation and excellent robot vacuum cleaners.
Well, the product we are talking about today fully represents the company's philosophy: it is Xiaomi Mi Vacuum Cleaner G9, a brand new wireless cyclonic vacuum cleaner that is not only Xiaomi branded (instead of being produced by one of its partner companies), but which is probably one of the cheapest in the category (considering, of course, the technical characteristics). In short, buy it Xiaomi Mi Vacuum Cleaner G9 it could be a bargain, it is true, as long as you buy it aware of some compromises that the company had to accept in order to guarantee such a low price. But first things first.
Xiaomi Mi Vacuum Cleaner G9 review: cheap and quality wireless cyclonic vacuum cleaner
The packaging of the Xiaomi Mi Vacuum Cleaner G9 follows the line of all the company's home products. It is white, well finished, and inside it contains all the essential accessories to be able to take advantage of the wireless cyclonic vacuum cleaner in all possible conditions: despite being an economic model, Xiaomi has not given up practically any essential accessory.
Inside we find:
- Rigid tube;
- Main motorized brush;
- Roller brush;
- Anti-mite brush;
- 2 in 1 crevice tool;
- 2 in 1 upholstery nozzle;
- Support for charging.
Design and materials
Made entirely with a white plastic shell, the shape of the Xiaomi Mi Vacuum Cleaner G9 allows a very convenient cleaning, the weight of the central component is about 3 kilograms, which makes the cyclonic cordless vacuum cleaner quite handy. I am rather perplexed about the color, which in this type of product should aim for decidedly darker shades: the white of the whole body tends to get very dirty from the first use and it could happen that, with the passage of time, the vacuum cleaner tends to get stained continuously.
Ok, the look of the Xiaomi Mi Vacuum Cleaner G9 it might seem less "futuristic" than other models, not to mention the latest Dyson model, it must be said, however, that it is an essential product, born to clean, in which the master is certainly not the appearance but quality and suction power.
La battery is removable, which is good, the point is that recharging can only take place with the battery connected to the vacuum cleaner (unless you buy an external charger), which makes it a bit meaningless: it is a solution designed more for the longevity of the vacuum cleaner and to make it easier to replace an exhausted battery, rather than to allow you to clean longer, charging one battery at a time while you continue to use the vacuum cleaner.
No LCD display, no digital management of suction modes and no "Hold" function for cleaning. There is no doubt therefore that it is Xiaomi Mi Vacuum Cleaner G9 is an essential vacuum cleaner in all respects, and even if the absence of the display and the choice to use a "mechanical" button to choose the suction power poco I'm interested, what I would have liked to see in Xiaomi's vacuum cleaner is the possibility of not always having to press the trigger to vacuum: it might seem nonsense, but it is something that in the long run makes the cleaning process much more comfortable.
Under the white body there is also the filtering system, whose heart is a HEPA-13 filter very easy to extract, as well as all the other filter components and the dirt container: everything can be washed under running water, but be careful not to immerse the filter and wait for all the components to dry well: the system filter is capable of capturing and holding up to 99.97% of particles from 0.3 microns upwards.
Suction power - Xiaomi Mi Vacuum Cleaner G9
The engine of the Xiaomi Mi Vacuum Cleaner G9 it's a 400w brushless at 100.000 rpm which guarantees a suction power equal to 120AW: it is less powerful than many other products in the same category, but costs about 1/3 less than most of its competitors and is able to guarantee more than adequate suction.
There are three suction modes, the most powerful emits a noise of 68 db, and in addition to affecting the actual power, they significantly affect the battery life: an important detail for these devices, which we will talk about shortly.
In terms of handling we are at the level of even more powerful models. With the motorized brush lo Xiaomi Mi Vacuum Cleaner G9 gives its best, and is able to slide on surfaces perfectly though - given the rotation and the material of the brush - may have some difficulty on carpets, which could risk tangling if they are too thin and light.
Besides the brush, you can use the lots of accessories that come out in the package, which are functional even without the aluminum tube and connected directly to the vacuum cleaner.
In short, it will not be the most powerful in its category, but it is Xiaomi Mi Vacuum Cleaner G9 will allow anyone to clean even the dirtiest environments in which dirt or dust are the masters with excellent efficiency.
Lo Xiaomi Mi Vacuum Cleaner G9 integrates 7 2500 mAh batteries which, according to the company declares, are able to guarantee a maximum autonomy of 60 minutes if it is used without the motorized brush. In real life, however, in my tests I managed to get to 9 minutesi of autonomy with the most powerful suction mode, or a 25 minutes with that average ea 50 minutes with the low one, always using the motorized brush.
However, the charging system is excellent, which will require about 3 hours and a half to go from 0 to 100%. And considering that the Jimmy JV 85, which has practically the same battery pack, takes 4 to 5 hours to recharge, there is no doubt that the work done by Xiaomi is of an excellent level.
Price and considerations
The price of the Xiaomi Mi Vacuum Cleaner G9 is 239.99 euros, but through the coupon you find below, you can buy it on eBay in the launch offer at 170,99 euros. And, let's get straight to the point: at this price you can't buy anything better.
It is a well-built, solid, sufficiently powerful cordless cyclonic vacuum cleaner, packed with accessories in the box and with a excellent value for money. If it were not for those few compromises chosen by Xiaomi, one above all the absence of a "Hold" button for cleaning, probably the wireless cyclonic vacuum cleaner of the Chinese giant would have been the absolute best-buy in its price range.
