Resumee

The ROIDMI - X20 NEX is a solid vacuum cleaner with a satisfactory cleaning result. In order to clean the floor properly from the particles, it is necessary to pass over the spots more often. It is noticeable that the vacuum cleaner is a bit impractical because the charging cable bends when charging and the power button is inconvenient to reach. Also, the battery only lasts a few minutes in turbo mode and the runtime decreases rapidly if you use the mode in between. Otherwise, the battery lasts about an hour in normal mode and even quite long in relation to the charging time. In general, cleaning the device is very easy and the lamps, which turn on in dark rooms, help you to see the dirt better.

Pro

  • Many attachment possibilities
  • 3 suction strengths
  • Easy to empty

Cons

  • Doesn't stand up by itself
  • Ergonomically unfavourably positioned power button
  • Small rollers run loudly across the floor and could scratch
  • Mediocre to poor suction results, especially at edges
  • A locked joint at the foot

It has some ergonomic disadvantages in the construction but is easy to empty and scores with the attachment possibilities.

Preparation

The ROIDMI - X20 NEX comes in a simple package and is ready for use as soon as it is taken out of the box. This manual describes how to handle the unit in English only.

Optics

The unit is white and grey on the main unit and also the feet have these colours. Small lights indicate the battery status in white.

Handling

The suction cup is easy to assemble and can be simply plugged together with the click system. The accessories include two electric attachments, one with a carpet brush and a brush for hard floors and one attachment for furniture. There are also small attachments and a flexible corner attachment.

To switch on the vacuum cleaner, press the power button for about 2 seconds. This button is ergonomically disadvantageous and should rather be located at the height of the suction power button.

With this, three suction strengths can be adjusted. The switch can be simply pressed with the thumb above the handle and does not have to be held permanently. If the button is pressed, the performance changes.

The dirt container can be emptied at any time. To do this, the container is tilted forward at a knob and can then be unscrewed to tip it out. With approx. 0.4 litres the container is quite small and must be emptied regularly. The filter can be removed just as easily and should be cleaned or changed regularly for a better suction result. A replacement filter is included in the scope of delivery.

At just over 2.5 kilograms, the device is handy and very easy to lift. The wide roller under the foot makes it easy to use and should be checked and hair removed from time to time. The joint of the suction foot is very flexible and you can easily get into tight corners.

The volume is very low in normal mode and corresponds approximately to a normal call volume. The slight beep is noticeable, which resonates in the sound. This is carried through several rooms. In maximum mode, the suction cup can reach a volume of about 76 dB. If you want to put the device to one side during work, you must lean the vacuum cleaner against a piece of furniture or the wall. To improve the grip, a rubber coating is applied to prevent it from slipping. The vacuum cleaner does not stand by itself.

With the wall bracket, the vacuum cleaner has a fixed place, but you can also charge the vacuum cleaner without the wall bracket. It is noticeable that the charging cable bends when you lean the vacuum cleaner against the wall.

You can charge the vacuum cleaner independently of the charging station

Cleaning result

The cleaning result is satisfactory. In the case of more serious soiling on hard floors, the vacuum cleaner pushes back small piles, but the result is still good forward. On carpet, you need several passes in normal mode. On edges, however, some residue remains and you can vacuum again without the suction rod and with the corner tool. The vacuum cleaner has lamps at the front that make it easier to see dirt. The light only comes on when it is dark.

The carpet is well cleaned after several passes, but edges are cleaned unsatisfactorily

With the wiper attachment, you can also wipe in addition to vacuuming. The amount of water discharged cannot be controlled. In general, very little water escapes from the openings provided for this purpose. The rubber bumps at the bottom should not be pressed in, as they only serve as dampers but not as pumps.

In normal mode, the battery lasts for about 60 minutes, which is enough for normal use in several rooms. As soon as you switch to turbo mode, the battery life drops rapidly. It is also noticeable that the vacuum cleaner gets warm when you use it continuously. If you only vacuum in turbo mode, the battery lasts for 12 minutes. The charging time is about 2 to 3 hours.

Can the suction stand on its own?
Avatar
AskGeorge.com
No, the weight has been shifted too much forward and the vacuum cleaner cannot stand on its own. However, there are rubber linings at the back which allow the appliance to lean safely against the wall.
