Xiaomi Robot Vacuum Mop 2i review

Ever since the pandemic happened the demand for good vacuum cleaners has gone up. And if it does the work on its own then it is the cherry on top. Xiaomi is no stranger to robot vacuum cleaners and the latest to enter India from the brand is Xiaomi Robot Vacuum Mop 2i. We spent a lot of time with the new-age vacuum cleaner to know its ins and outs. This is the Xiaomi Robot Vacuum Mop 2i review you must read before buying any robot vacuum cleaner.

Xiaomi Robot Vacuum Mop 2i review: Design

Out of the box, the Xiaomi Robot Vacuum Mop 2i looks like any other robot vacuum cleaner in the market with subtle differences. To begin with, this one is dressed in white, while others have darker colours on them. White in our view will get dirty over time and will show the stains. Don’t get us wrong, white looks spectacular but does get grimy rather quickly.

You will find the bumper upfront of the Xiaomi Robot Vacuum Mop 2i, which has sensors all around it. Above and bottom, too. On the top, you will get a power button, a home button and a camera that will map the whole house or area, which it needs to clean. Behind this is a flat panel that can be easily lifted. This hides the dust container (with 450ml capacity) that can be easily removed, cleaned and reinstalled.

Underneath there is a powerful 2,200Pa suction motor vent that can pick up the tiniest dust particles with ease. Here you will also get a sweeper that pushes the dirt toward the suction vent and located at the bottom back is the wet mop. You can fill it with water (up to 270ml) and it will wet mop the area as well.

With it comes a charging station that can be placed up against any wall near a power outlet and the Xiaomi Robot Vacuum Mop 2i will go back to it on its own, to charge.

Xiaomi Robot Vacuum Mop 2i review: Performance

To make the Xiaomi Robot Vacuum Mop 2i vacuum work you will need to install the Mi Home app on your smartphone. For the first time make sure the mobile device and the Vacuum Cleaner are being connected to the same Wi-Fi network as that is needed for the initial setup. It takes 2-5 minutes to complete this setup and if the robot mop is charged fully you are ready to make it work for you.

For the first time, the Xiaomi Robot Vacuum Mop 2i takes 1-3 hours, depending on the home size, to map it out completely while cleaning it. It uses an advance zig-zag motion, which enables it to clean better. This means instead of going all over the place it goes in one direction then turns around and comes back in the other direction. Making sure it does not leave any dirty spots behind.

Once the Xiaomi Robot Vacuum Mop 2i has mapped your house, the next time it will take much lesser time to clean the house as it knows where the walls and obstacles are. For it to work best, make sure there are not too many objects left on the floor.

The Xiaomi Robot Vacuum Mop 2i is a great cleaner, not only it removes the dust it wet wipes the floor too. You can also control the amount of water that it uses. Over that the slim design is great to go under and clean hard-to-reach places. Once it is done or if it feels there is less battery, it will come back to the charging station on its own to charge fully. In case an area is left before recharging, it will go back to it to clean after fully charging.

Talking about its battery life, the Xiaomi Robot Vacuum Mop 2i has a 2,600mAh battery and the company claims it can last for 100 mins. In our tests, we got almost 90 minutes of clean time from it, which is not bad at all. It took the Xiaomi Robot Vacuum Mop 2i to clean 140 square yards area in under that much time.

The Xiaomi Robot Vacuum Mop 2i has 25 sensors with gyroscope to navigate it through your house. It has an anti-fall detection sensor too, so if it approaches a ledge or staircase it will not proceed and will turn around. For walls, it has a front collision bumper that enables it to detect and go back or around objects. Over that, you can also schedule clean-ups using the app. At Rs 18,999 this mop is a great investment, that is not very loud and will clean your home in no time.
