Viomi continues to give Xiaomi a run for its money, with the Viomi A9 coming to counter Xiaomi’s upright brooms, and doing so with such ease that it’s surprising.
The first thing that will impress you, is that its black and silver plastics make it VERY impressive, but I guess you didn’t go in to see it just because it’s gorgeous.
The fact that she IS pretty helps a lot, of course.
The reason you went in to see it is because of its 400W brushless motor, which gives 23,000pa suction, with the rotary brush on the end of it, pushing the trash towards the 5 filter system, which separates the trash centrifugally, via cyclonic technology.
The 100,000 RPM rotating Moter is powered by a 2500mAh battery that gives it 10 to 60 minutes of operation depending on the power level you choose between MAX mode, Standard mode and Energy saving mode.
Correspondingly the sound for these three levels is from 71-83db, and the trash collection canister has a capacity of 400ml, so you won’t have to empty it all the time either.
The impressive feature of the Viomi A9, is that its battery is very easily removable, and unlike other vacuum cleaners on the market, which after 10 minutes of heavy use, have to stay on charge for a couple of hours before you can use them again for that long, here you can purchase a second battery, and snap it on when the first one gives up the ghost, and continue uninterrupted.
The weight of the vacuum is 1.5 kilos, and in the package, apart from the motor and battery, you’ll find a flattened tip for those tricky corners, and a 2-in-1 brush, and of course there’s an extension hose, but also a wall mount that lifts the vacuum, its charger, and all its stuff.
On the plus side, count the 4 LEDs in its face, which allow you to see all the trash, socks, shoes, cookies, markers, forks, cups, devils, the IT clown, goblins, and the piccatsu (not teddy bear, the real one) hiding under the couch.
I own the Xiaomi Mijia 1C, which on paper is of similar characteristics, and I can’t tell you HOW MUCH A HELP THIS WIRING IS. Very big. Too much.
In Banggood’s offer, you can find the Viomi A9 at 151.8€ with shipping from the Czech Republic, a price WAY TOO honest.
