Suck and wipe at the same time, high suction power, top design and workmanship. This was what the Roidmi NEX stood for when it came onto the market a few months ago. The second generation of the successful Roidmi NEX is now available through Xiaomi’s sales and crowdfunding platform Youpin. We have gathered all the information known so far. Better than the predecessor?
We are not 100 percent convinced that the name will be “Roidmi NEX 2“. Maybe there are also different variations, depending on which continent the product is sold on. And as the table with the technical data shows: At first glance, not much has changed compared to the previous model. Vacuum and wipe at the same time , app control (meaningless for battery vacuum cleaners), LED lights (switch on when darkness is detected around the floor nozzle ) and 60 minutes of work time are included.
It is probably a simple upgrade of the previous model, the engine was optimized, which now works at 120,000 revolutions per minute . The suction power was increased from 23,500 to 25,000 pa. As you can see in this overview of all Xiaomi battery vacuum cleaners , Xiaomi subsidiaries tend to bring out different upgrade versions of good models. So here too. But hey, the roller has another color! Yellow-black now (BVB fans among us?). Seems to be trendy, Realme is also currently using black and yellow . I wonder when the first China manufacturer comes up with the idea that you can simply choose the colors when you order.
However, since the roller at Xiaomiyoupin is “customizable”, that means it can be freely chosen in terms of color, it is quite possible that it will also come in a different color. The Roidmi NEX 2 NEXT generation can be switched to a hand-held vacuum cleaner with a click lock. A mite attachment is also included, which removes dust mites and dust from textiles, which is primarily relevant for allergy sufferers.
On the subject of app control with a cordless vacuum cleaner: I would like to be instructed otherwise, but find it pointless to spend more on a model just because you can use an app to understand the remaining battery life more precisely. Then prefer a display like the Roborock H6. As much as I like to integrate products in my Xiaomi Home app ( Android, iOS ), I don’t think that has to be the case with a vacuum cleaner. Alternatively, the in-house app ” Roidmi” ( Android, iOS ) is also available.
Outlook: exciting upgrade of the NEX? No, not exciting, but interesting depending on the price. After all, the product is currently only available to Chinese buyers, but should also make the international leap in the next few weeks. Xiaomiyoupin currently pays 1600 yuan, which is the equivalent of just under $250. It is foreseeable that the price will be significantly higher for us. The previous model NEX already costs $350, an upgrade model could be around $400. And then we are talking about a price that should be considered twice.
Personally, I like the manufacturer Roidmi very much, the models have always been top quality and kept what they promised. Devices with which one could be satisfied after the not so pleasant payment. With the 2nd generation of the NEX, however, the idea that I have recently had with Roborock and the vacuum robots has slowly crept into my mind: Why so many models that differ only marginally? Why only such short development cycles instead of new ideas? The answers are clear, it seems to be paying off somehow. But as a brand-interested customer, you can quickly get confused. And sometime bored as a tester.
