As you know, Xiaomi has many sub-brands such as Mijia, Deerma, Yeelight, Amazfit and others. While Roborock produces robot vacuum cleaners, Roidmi is known for its wireless handheld vacuum cleaners, such as Roidmi NEX X20. Yesterday, the Chinese manufacturer announced the release of a new wireless vacuum cleaner called Roidmi NEX 2.
By the way, the vacuum cleaner was released in two versions – NEX 2 and NEX 2 Pro. The main difference between them is LCD display for NEX 2 and OLED display for NEX 2 Pro.
Both handheld vacuum cleaners have 2500mAh battery and up to 70 minutes on a single charge.
Let’s talk about the other features of the new Roidmi vacuum cleaners in this first review.
Judging by the picture above, Roidmi NEX 2 Pro is available in white and grey colors, while NEX 2 comes in white only.
The package content of new vacuum cleaners is quite rich: various filters, mounts, nozzles, metal pipe, bending pipe, etc.
LCD/OLED Color Display
As I said before, one of the major updates of NEX 2 and NEX 2 Pro is the color display. NEX 2 has an LCD display, while NEX 2 Pro comes with OLED screen.
The display shows battery level, error, suction power, change the HEPA filter, and even burned calories. Very interesting!
The main part of the vacuum cleaner has a container for collecting garbage. It has a capacity of 0.55 litres. According to the manufacturer, this is enough to clean a room of 450 square meters.
The vacuum cleaner also has special connectors for wireless charging. Now you do not need to connect the charging cable. Just attach it to the wall with wireless charger.
By the way, handheld vacuum cleaner weighs about 2.7kg. That’s not much, so the long cleaning shouldn’t be the problem for you.
Motor and suction power
Okay, now let’s talk about the specifications of the new Roidmi NEX 2 and NEX 2 Pro handheld vacuum cleaners.
The new devices have a motor power of 150 W and suction power of 26500 Pa or 26.5 KPa.
Battery life and charging
As for the battery, it has a capacity of 2500 mAh. According to the manufacturer, the vacuum cleaner works up to 70 minutes on one charge, or 450 square meters.
Charging from 0% to 100% takes 2.5 hours. As I said before, you can use wireless charging.
Wet cleaning? Wash the floors?
Judging by the picture above, Roidmi NEX 2 and NEX 2 Pro have a wet cleaning function or mopping.
This is something interesting! It looks like the new Xiaomi handheld vacuum cleaners have a water tank as well as a cloth that can be used to wash floors. Now it’s not just a vacuum cleaner, it’s a mop.
By the way, the maximum noise level of Roidmi NEX 2 and NEX 2 Pro is 77 dB. I agree with you that it is too much, so your child can not sleep, while you are vacuuming. However, firstly, 77 dB is the maximum noise level at the highest suction power. Secondly, it is less than many old vacuum cleaners.
Bluetooth connection to smartphone
I also want to note that the new handheld vacuum cleaners Xiaomi Roidmi NEX 2 and NEX 2 Pro are connected to a smartphone via Bluetooth. However, this is not a new feature.
Previous Roidmi vacuum cleaners also had a Bluetooth connection to smartphones.
Price and Buy Roidmi NEX 2 and NEX 2 Pro
The new Xiaomi Roidmi NEX 2 and NEX 2 Pro handheld vacuum cleaners were introduced on YouPin a few days ago. The price of Roidmi NEX 2 is 2099 yuan or $295. If to talk about Pro version, it costs 2699 yuan or $380.
We can be sure that in the near future Roidmi NEX 2 and NEX 2 Pro will go on sale at Aliexpress, GearBest, Banggood and other popular Chinese shops. Waiting!
