Xiaomi Mi Robot Vacuum-Mop 2 Pro + review
Unboxing - Xiaomi Mi Robot Vacuum-Mop 2 Pro +
The sales package is made in the classic white hardcover on which the robot is depicted and inside we find the following equipment:
- Xiaomi Mi Robot Vacuum-Mop 2 Pro +;
- water tank with integrated cloth;
- power cord;
- charging base;
- side brush;
- cleaning tool;
- multilingual instruction manual (including Italian).
Design and construction
Il design the Xiaomi Mi Robot Vacuum-Mop 2 Pro + it is not so different from that of the competition or previous models, as it always has a rounded shape with the same distribution of the brushes and the water tank. However, the big news is that this robot doesn't have a classic turret with laser distance sensor (LDS) to map home, but only two cameras with ToF sensors.
This novelty will allow the device to perform the same functions as before, but with some smaller in dimensions, therefore it will facilitate cleaning under raised furniture or sanitary ware. Indeed, the robot has 35 cm in diameter and is only thick 8.15 cm, for a total weight of 3.7 kilograms.
La construction however it is a lot solid and the materials used are of good quality. In fact, glossy and opaque plastic alternate, which have the only defect of retaining the dust a little. I'm not talking about large quantities of course, but a dusting every two days you will have to give it to him.
Above we find the visual navigation sensor, the home button and the power button, while below there are the altitude sensors, the omnidirectional wheels, the charging contacts, an optical sensor, the side brush and the main one and the wheels.
Lifting the lid we notice the status LED for Wi-Fi, the button for the reset and the dirt container. Analyzing the last sections we move on to the front profile on which the other camera with ToF sensor is placed, the anti-collision cushioned band, while on the back you can see the air intake with the integrated speakers.
The application to use to take advantage of all the features of the Xiaomi Mi Robot Vacuum-Mop 2 Pro + it is the classic and excellent "Xiaomi Home", which is in Italian and fully functional with European servers.
First it will be necessary register and then carry out the pairing between the robot and the smartphone. Obviously, to do this you will need a connection Wi-Fi. Otherwise you can still start the robot, but without being able to exploit all its potential smart.
From the first screen you can select the 3 most important functions:
- Base: the robot will return to the charging base;
- Start cleaning: to start (or to pause later) the vacuum;
- mode: it will be possible to choose different types of cleaning including Silent, Standard, High power, Turbo;
- Setting the water level: we can choose how much water to release for washing the floor. The options are 3, namely Low, Medium and High.
In addition, you can view the mapping of the house, the route taken in the current cleaning session, the area already covered, the percentage of remaining battery and the cleaning time from the start.
Before analyzing the menu, I will talk about some interesting functions that are worth mentioning, in fact through the app Xiaomi Home it will be possible to start cleaning only in some areas, to program the cleaning according to schedules, to trace on the map of the barriers that the robot must not cross or memorize maps or activate the intelligent suction mode, which changes power according to the surface on which it is located.
It will be possible to share the management of the robot with multiple users and change the language. There is Italian as well as the main European and non-European languages such as Chinese and Korean.
For the rest there are the classic features seen on board its predecessors such as:
- DND mode: that is, the non-disturbing mode in which we can specify the hours when the vacuum must neither clean nor emit sounds;
- Notifications: if we want to receive notifications about the status of the robot;
- Chronology of the cleaning: it shows the history of the cleaning sessions, the number of starts, the total of the covered area and the total number of minutes of use since the first installation;
- Service program: it is possible to monitor the state of integrity of the internal components, when to replace the brushes or clean the filters and sensors;
- Remote controller: it allows us to control the device at will by means of directional buttons;
- User manual: here we find the user manual and instructions for use;
- General Settings: there are the basic settings of the robot including: rename, share device, automation, check for updates, unpair and so on;
- Locate my vacuum cleaner: through this function the robot will start to speak to allow us to find it easily.
In short, nothing to say about the app Xiaomi which is truly complete and perfect for advanced use.
Before starting to talk about its operation, it is good to make a brief recap of its technical specifications:
- Aspiration: 3000 pa;
- Power: 40W;
- Battery: 5200 mAh;
- Collector capacity: 0.55 L;
- Tank capacity: 250ml.
I say it right away: it Xiaomi Mi Robot Vacuum-Mop 2 Pro + I was surprised. Replacing the laser turret with two ToF sensors was not easy, but the company managed to find a more than functional solution that saves thickness.
I was surprised there precision with which this robot approaches furniture and obstacles without hardly ever touching them, but bypassing them and continuing with minute cleaning of the apartment. In this way, accidental damage caused inside the home when you are not at home is greatly reduced. Furthermore, thanks to the set of various sensors, the robot will be able to climb small steps of a couple of centimeters (think of the parquet trim or a carpet), avoid real steps thanks to the difference in height sensors and understand where in the house it is placed.
La cleaning is great thanks also to the suction power of 3000 Pa, which will be able to pick up even the most difficult dirt. I've always used it in mode Standard e High power, but the former is more than enough for a daily passage. I would like to point out that, if you have carpets, you can set the mode "Super suction for carpets" which will automatically detect the suction surface and increase the suction power.
Here, in this case I would remove the water tank to avoid wetting the carpet, but for other situations I remind you that, being also a floor cleaner, it will also remove the residual dust on the floor to ensure better cleaning.
About this aspect it is good to point out that inside the tank no type of detergent must be inserted, soap or other liquid, but only water. This is because they risk clogging or deteriorating the nozzles.
However by setting a high water release it is possible to clean an apartment from 80mq and still have 1/4 of the tank available (the total capacity is 250 ml). With the remainder it is possible to cover approx 40mq with low release mode.
Lo Xiaomi Mi Robot Vacuum-Mop 2 Pro + It is equipped with a battery 5200 mAh, which guarantees us aexcellent autonomy and ensures us a complete cleaning even for very large houses. Obviously the suction mode affects the duration a lot, but also with mode High power the robot managed to cover approx 80mq (the map marks 40 square meters, but the vacuum makes a double pass) consuming just the 30% of the battery for about 70 minutes of use.
If the robot was about to discharge, it will automatically return to the charging base and once it reaches 100% it will return to clean the apartment from the area it had left pending.
Conclusions - Xiaomi Mi Robot Vacuum-Mop 2 Pro +
With the new Xiaomi Mi Robot Vacuum-Mop 2 Pro + the Chinese company has launched a product decisively interesting with cutting-edge technology that we will soon see aboard other competitors. In everyday life we talk about a robot that behaves very well both in cleaning and washing and does it extremely well precision e minutia.
I was very satisfied with the new home vacuum Xiaomi and today I think it is one of the best solutions on the market. Obviously the price reflects its quality and officially it is sold well 400 over the euro, but thanks to our coupons that we share daily on GizDeals you can buy it on AliExpress a 323.20 € with discount code "2PROPLUS20". I remind you that it is sent from Spain, it has an Italian and Italian language.
At this figure it becomes decidedly more attractive and less expensive than other competitors with fewer features found on Amazon.
