On Xiaomi crowfunding started collecting funds for the Roidmi Handheld Wireless Vacuum Cleaner or simply Roidmi F8. For the "exceptional design" the new model won the iF Design Award 2018.
Powerful and convenient
The vacuum cleaner is equipped with a motor that makes up to 100,000 rpm. Suction power reaches 115 watts with a total consumption of not more than 415 watts. A full charge of the battery for 74 Wh is enough for 55 minutes of work or 10 minutes in turbo mode. Roidmi F8 weighs just 1.5 kg or 2.5 kg with an electric brush. The main attachment was additionally equipped with an LED backlight for cleaning under the sofas.
The novelty uses a four-level air purification system. The HEPA filter needs to be changed periodically, and the vacuum cleaner will tell you when. Rather, the notification will appear in the mobile application, where the power and filling level of the dust bag (volume 0.4 liters) are also monitored. If the vacuum cleaner does not turn on and only "blinks the lights," you can view information about the problem on the smartphone.
The standard delivery set includes a magnetic mount to the wall (the dock does not support charging, the cable has to be connected manually) and two simple nozzles. Those who order a vacuum cleaner now, give as a gift a filter ($ 3) and two more attachments: flexible ($ 13) and a small turbo brush ($ 16). Separately, a rigid brush will be sold to clean carpets with long nap. In the photo above, optional accessories are indicated under numbers 3, 7, 9 and 10.
How much is it?
In China, crowid-fencing Roidmi F8 can be ordered for about $ 240, after the campaign ends for all the options will have to pay. The closest competitor is the Dyson V8 wireless vacuum cleaner with similar characteristics and costs from $ 400.
On AliExpress, you can find budget options ranging from $ 125 to $ 150 depending on the brand. What do you have to sacrifice? Power and autonomy, plus inexpensive models and plastic housing.
Tired of waving your hands? In this case, there are robotic vacuum cleaners. Partners Xiaomi not so long ago presented several models , and the firm Mi Robot Vacuum costs about $ 255 on the home market.
