Xiaomi smart vacuums are unrivalled – Here’s how to choose the right one for your needs

 ·20 Jul 2023

Xiaomi’s smart vacuum cleaners make keeping your house clean a pleasure, thanks to their roster of high-tech features.

They come in four different models in South Africa and boast impressive technical capabilities with powerful suction fan blowers, high-capacity batteries, advanced mopping functions, and automatic recharging.

All models available in South Africa exemplify the quality and performance for which Xiaomi devices have become renowned, and they are each the leaders at their respective price points.

Xiaomi robot vacuum benefits

Xiaomi’s robot vacuums take all the effort of keeping your floors clean out of your hands thanks to their comprehensive autonomous capabilities.

From navigating obstacles in their vicinity to supporting robust scheduling – Xiaomi’s robot vacuums will keep your home spotless without any supervision.

This means you can set your robot vacuum to silent mode and leave it running during the night, or you can schedule it to run during your work hours so that when you return home, you are greeted with spotless floors.

You can even set your Xiaomi robot vacuum to remember multiple floor plans so that you can use the same robot vacuum cleaner to clean several different rooms.

We detail what each robot vacuum offers and which one is right for your needs, below.

Xiaomi Robot Vacuum E10

The Xiaomi Robot Vacuum E10 is the best choice if you want an affordable and effective smart vacuum for smaller rooms.

Unlike other affordable smart vacuums available from lesser-known brands, the E10 has undergone a rigorous design and testing process to ensure it offers an excellent range of high-tech features that will keep your home pristine.

For example: It has a 2,600mAh battery that will run for nearly two hours on a single charge, and uses a novel zigzagging path for each cleaning pass – allowing it to reach areas other smart vacuums would have missed.

This zigzagging approach won’t cause collisions with your furniture, either, as the E10 sports multiple sensors that constantly track its environment and adjust its path accordingly.

When it comes to its cleaning capabilities, the E10 boasts an impressive 4000Pa suction system – unrivalled at this price point – with four adjustable levels that can handle everything from dust to larger debris.

The E10’s mopping function is just as adaptable and will even adjust its water usage to match the floor it is cleaning.

After your rooms have been cleaned, it is incredibly easy to empty and clean the vacuum’s dust and water tanks

At a recommended retail price (RRP) of R4,499, the E10 is unrivalled in its segment.

Xiaomi Robot Vacuum S10

The S10 is an affordable smart vacuum that offers even more features.

Its biggest differentiator from the E10 is its precise laser navigation technology – which boasts a range of up to eight metres and a raised LDS sensor with 360-degree detection.

Thanks to these sensors, the S10 will not get lost or stuck during a pass – which is useful as it will be active for longer periods thanks to its 3,200mAh battery.

Thanks to this larger battery and its impressive laser navigation technology, the S10 is a great option if you want to leave your smart vacuum on overnight or when you’re at work.

Additionally, S10 also comes with a superior 4,000Pa fan blower to help keep your floors clean – along with four impressive suction modes.

The recommended retail price of the S10 is only R5,999, and you’ll be hard-pressed to find a better value offering in this segment.

Xiaomi Robot Vacuum S10+

The S10+ provides a significant step up from the S10, including enhanced functionality and power.

Key to this is its 5,200mAh battery, which allows the S10+ to handle much larger rooms.

In fact, the S10+ can clean up to 200 square metres in a single pass – making it ideal for large homes and for businesses looking to keep their office clean.

This incredible coverage size combines with a robust laser navigation system and 3D obstacle avoidance to provide an exceptional clean even in complex environments – such as those with lots of furniture.

Another notable upgrade with the S10+ is its large water tank, which lets it mop up to 150 square metres in a single pass.

These mopping passes are facilitated by its double-layer composite mop pads that deliver improved stain removal across a larger area.

When executing a mopping cycle, the S10+ will also use its expert carpet avoidance system to navigate around your carpets and ensure they remain dry.

The S10+ available at an RRP of R9,999 – making it ideal for larger households and businesses.

Xiaomi Robot Vacuum X10+

The top robot vacuum from Xiaomi in South Africa is the X10+.

The device takes cleaning to the next level with a wide array of automated features that are facilitated by its Smart Cleaning Station. These include:

  • Self-emptying – The X10+ will automatically empty all dirt it has picked up into its Smart Cleaning Station.
  • Self-refilling – When your X10+ runs out of water for mopping cycles, it will return to the Smart Cleaning Station and will automatically be refilled.
  • Self-cleaning – When your X10+ senses it is dirty enough to effect performance, the Smart Cleaning Station will clean the smart vacuum.
  • Self-drying – When a mopping cycle is completed, the Smart Cleaning Station will dry the X10+ to prepare for a dry vacuum.

The combination of these features ensures the Xiaomi Robot Vacuum X10+ is the most autonomous robot vacuum currently in the country.

Thanks to this unrivalled autonomy, you can set up your X10+ once and will never have to worry about it again.

It can be left running through the night, while you are at work, or even when you are away on holiday – in every case, it will keep itself running optimally indefinitely.

This takes the stress of keeping your home clean out of your hands and lets you enjoy more quality time with your family.

Additionally, Xiaomi has installed S-Cross AI Advanced obstacle recognition and avoidance technology to allow the X10+ to navigate any environment with millimetre-level accuracy.

This technology will recognise which items can be vacuumed over – like a mat – and which should be avoided.

For example: If your animals leave their toys lying around, or if your children have left their clothing on the floor, the Xiaomi X10+ will automatically recognise that it should not run over these items, and will instead navigate around them.

Thanks to this impressive tech, as well as the wide range of cleaning cycle types, there is no better smart vacuum cleaner in South Africa than the X10+.

The X10+ is available at an RRP of R19,999.
