Xiaomi just launched the second generation of its successful Roidmi NEX handheld vacuum cleaners. The NEX 2 and NEX 2 Pro are manufactured by the Chinese tech giant’s eco-chain partner Roidmi and are launched under its Youpin crowdfunding platform.
In addition to the built-in colored screen, both vacuum cleaners come with strong suction power, smartphone connection support via Mijia application, and sleek design.
Design and construction
Design-wise, both the vacuum cleaners look a lot like the famous Dyson handheld vacuum cleaner. The NEX 2 Pro is quite sleek as compared to its sibling; however, internally, both have the same features.
The NEX 2 comes with an LED; in contrast, the NEX 2 Pro features an OLED. The displays are designed to showcase the cleaning status of the machines in real-time.
Both vacuum cleaners are available in only one color option. The NEX 2 is available in white and NEX 2 Pro in grey color.
Both vacuum cleaners are a major upgrade as compared to their predecessors. The motor has been upgraded and now works at 120,000 rpm. The suction power has been bumped up to 26,500 Pa from 23,500 pa with a total power rating of 435W.
The NEX 2 and NEX 2 Pro come with a massive 500mAh/72Wh battery that provides 60 minutes of cleaning on one charge. As far as the charging process is concerned, the vacuum cleaners come with a magnetic wireless charging system that charges the battery from 0 to 100% in 2.5 hours.
Apart from this, both models are equipped with a 0.55L dust storage compartment that comes with a HEPA filter system. Moreover, they can also be converted to a handheld vacuum cleaner with a click-lock.
Pricing and Availability
The vacuum cleaners are currently available for sale on Xiaomi Youpin. The Roidmi Nex 2 costs $295 while the Nex 2 Pro is priced at $352.
