Awesome price for a robot vacuum and a good brand - 2.5 hours of cleaning on a single charge, can switch it on remotely also just incase the evil MIL decides she wants to come over and stick her oar in (as usual) - full specs / deets below - it also gets very good reviews - 4.9/5 stars from 737

USE CODE XIAOMIVAC at checkout (must be logged in) - EDIT - new code at bottom of description will bring total down to £214.05



Xiaomi's smart home ecosystem has a new addition today! The Mi Robot Vacuum is a highly intelligent home cleaning device with 12 different sensors. The Laser Distance Sensor ( LDS ) scans its surroundings 360 degree, 1800 times per second, to map out the interiors of your house. The three processors track its movements in real-time, and the Simultaneous Localization and Mapping ( SLAM ) algorithm calculates the most efficient route for cleaning. Using the Mi Home app, you can switch on and remotely control the robot, change cleaning modes and set schedules, Additionally, a powerful Nidec brushless DC motor, a main brush with adjustable height and a 5200mAh Li-ion battery for up to 2.5 hours of cleaning.

Are these actually any good? I believed the hype with steam mops and they turned out to be crap but this is a more expensive gamble to be taking.

Have watched many hours of videos on YouTube, this is the best vacuum out there for the price and more...... . Best price I have ever seen. Hopefully won't have to pay customs....


Maybe spend less time watching videos of vacuum cleaners and more time cleaning your house... You might save yourself £200
bought it

Have two of these and they are brilliant! The cheapest yet reliable robotic vacuum that does mapping
This one or the Robovac 11? ( both around £220)
I have the one from Amazon that is fantastic. I've had it six months and wouldn't be without it. On a wooden floor and having a dog it's an investment for £219.

Anyone know what the import duty (and chances) for getting this delivered would be?
Can it vacuum on fitted carpet? My whole house is fitted with carpet...

I'm waiting for the price to go down ( was £167 Jun 13) !
Havent used this product before but I've been using the Mi home app for the smart light bulbs and its horrendous to use.

The only way I could get it to work was to change the account to connect to Singapore servers and lose the English text.

Really bad app.

I wouldn't buy any other vacuum that doesn't do mapping. If you just google some review videos, they will most likely show you how these Mi robot vacuum kind of draw the map of your house and go through every single corner. But conventional robot vacuum just keep bumping around like a headless chicken. iRobot Roomba 980 can also do mapping but it costs about four times as much.

Yes it can. It depends a little bit though on how thick it is.


You can see here how it works on a fitted carpet:

Anyone know how long the batteries last before replacement, and whether replacements are available? Thanks

that's the only thing that puts me a bit off. The Robovac 11 reviews/performance/price is really good, comparing to similar specs Robot Vacuums. The Xiaomi Mi Robot Vacuum specs are also really good ( 1800pa suction, 2.5H cleaning fade-free (?) ) .... decision decisions !!!

Gambling on this. Hoping customs works out ok. I think this is superior to the eufy but face some risk with warranty and shipping.

This is a great price however, what is the estimated import duty cost? This could make a fair difference.
Do these have to be permanently connected to WiFi, or do you just have to connect it to allow it to plan it's route, and then it doesn't require it anymore?

I generally find when ordering like this if you take the free shipping it ends up without customs charges, but if you courier it, you get stung

SOURCE: Have ordered 5 or 6 items from China never paid any customs including a xiaomi phone. Ordered same phone for a mate from same place, he wanted it couriered over (no patience), ended up with a 10% customs fee before the local sorting office would release it

Which is pretty much the same price as it is now if you convert to USD in Jun 13...Cancel Brexit and you might see that price again.
Hail our new robot overlords
Ordered, I am so dead, unless it is amazing! Now for a clean-the-bathroom robot please
Do these come with a UK plug?
i've used roomba for 8 years now. Fab. But save time in way dishwaher does. You still need to clear floor of toys etc and empty it. Like dishwasher you must empty/fill/put salt in etc

I bought one form China 5 months, used with thick carpet, works great.

I don't think so, but most of time it comes with an UK adaptor for free.
They are around about this price from fasttech.com too. Just type xiaomi in the search bar and i think its like the 1st item. £217 incase these sell out at GB or the code expires. :-)
Banned
Would highly recommend. Works well.
Why are most Xiaomi products listed as "original" Xiaomi.
i have a robotic vacuum cleaner and i swear it is very helpful. easily saved me enough time to earn the cost.

Thank you. That has sort of been my experience too. I always end up paying a little customs which I don't mind but I'm as guilty as your friend. Lack of patience. I did chose the free shipping on this occasion which says 10-20 business days so if I can avoid getting stung I'll be very pleased

According to the Gearbest site they ship a free adaptor of the destination order. In this case you should get a free UK adapter. The power cable is just a simple 2-prong power cable which you can order off Ebay for less than £3. I'm gonna buy one anyway as I'd rather not have an adaptor plugged in. Just looks a bit untidy.
Anyone know how this compares to the Neato botvac? Ours is about 3 years old now and although it still works lovely and can run for a couple of hours, the battery calibration is shot and if you pause it in the middle of a run it decides to return to base to recharge. Sometimes it returns to base, and 5 minutes later says it's fully charged again and it gets into a loop of charging/running for 5 mins at a time and you have to switch it off for a while. If the Xiaomi one is on a par or better I might buy one and retire the Neato to the robot spares bin

Lol fair enough, I'm just jealous I can't afford it
Hows the returns or warranty with these items with GB?
I'm mainly worried about software fully in Chinese and that I will pay big customs on top of that
