We already had the new Dreame V9 in the review, but now we also have the Dreame V10! So do we have a better Pro version here, the Dreame V9 “Pro” of the wireless hand vacuum cleaner? At first glance, it has been upgraded with metal on the case and it’s also supposed to offer a higher performance. This was at least the state of knowledge at the practical test of the Dreame V9. Apart from that, nothing has changed in the device, the scope of delivery and also the price is pretty identical with $249.99 depending on the offer situation.
Not Xiaomi Dreame V10, but still marketed via Xiaomi’s Youpin platform. Products that offer a lot for the money end up on the “Marketplace” – and the well-known retailers then add the products to their assortment and we can order them. So not directly Xiaomi, but Xiaomi-worthy value for money.
The first big innovation definitely catches the eye when unpacking: the area above the dust container has been given a new look. This is now dark grey metallic instead and is also associated with metal on the product photos. However, this is plastic – metal would definitely have increased the weight. It doesn’t look bad, but I like the harmonious look of the Dreame V9 better.
Otherwise nothing has changed: the Dreame V10 is also very well processed despite plastic. A little bit you could criticize the game between the Dreame and the extra time. The Dreame V10 is still operated via a fire button (pistol trigger), which has to be pressed with the index finger during operation. In practice it’s no problem and you save battery.
The scope of delivery of the V10 is exactly the same as we know it from the Dreame V9, also at the attachments nothing has changed.
Also here everything works flawlessly, except for small things. So the extension tube could sit a bit tighter or the flex tube of the JIMMY JV83 could still be there. The JIMMY’s mite / upholstery brush simply works better, too, due to the rigid angle of the Dreame.
At the beginning, we assumed that the Pro version would start the test with even more suction power – 21,000pa instead of 22,000pa – but now there is no more information about this. Also the Dreame V10 is given with 20k Pascal.
To vacuum the floor with the extension tube and the floor roller, the first stage is sufficient. If you drive over a carpet, I always switch to maximum power in order to remove dirt properly. With the mite / upholstery brush I use stage 2 – maximum power would be even more, but then the battery would not be enough for the complete couch and bed. The Max level is also usually used in combination with the two bristle nozzles – perfect for cleaning the computer keyboard, for example. Attention: the Dreame V10 is not suitable for wet vacuuming and the HEPA filter would probably be damaged.
The same suction power is accompanied by the same battery power. The Dreame V10 is also listed with 2500mAh (allegedly from Samsung), whereby it reaches the usual values of the other battery vacuum cleaners. At level 1, you can reach a maximum of 55 minutes and 45 minutes with the floor roller. Level 2 is still sufficient for 30 minutes and at maximum power the battery is empty after 12 minutes. Here, too, it should be noted that the battery needs a break after a good 6 minutes at Max in order not to overheat – at level 2, you can still continue vacuuming.
I am personally very satisfied with the battery life. For example, it’s enough to vacuum the entire apartment (80m²), or to do some fine work with the fine nozzle and upholstery brush – the vacuum robot still does most of the work. You can also vacuum the car completely with one battery charge. Here the footwell carpets, trunk, seats and all cracks belong to it.
There’s a surprise about the charging time of the battery-powered vacuum cleaner – albeit a bit inexplicable: I was able to fully charge the Dreame V10 in 3:30 hours, while the normal V9 took just under 4:00 hours. Maybe the wall mount takes some power out, even if I can still imagine it.
Dreame V10 has a design sense and a sense of quality. It provides a pleasant experience with low noise and is easily accommodated in its entirety. It has a very high cost-performance ratio. Vacuum cleaners are a powerful tool for improving family life and are worth buying.
