Gone are the days where vacuum cleaners need to keep you tethered to the wall, with cordless cleaners becoming more powerful and effective they are now turning out to be one of the first choices for many homes.
The X20 from Roidmi is a cordless vacuum cleaner with the capacity to mop at the same time giving you double the cleaning power in half the time, with a 120,000rpm brushless motor, a healthy 65 minute battery life, magnetic wireless charger and Air-X air-dust separation system.
This Air-X air-dust separation system avoids congestion and loss of suction with six layer filtration and double purification from the front and rear filters. The wet mop accessory can hold 160ml water, the Intelligent Slow Drop technology avoids too much water being left on the floor, the magnetic microfiber mop pad works well at removing day to day dirt, for tough dried on messes you will still have to use some elbow grease.
The nanoscale hydrophobic fibre is waterproof, anti-fouling and self-cleaning, the 270° two-way handle, allows you to comfortably grip with both hands making mopping the floor a little easier. That generous battery life we mentioned earlier is quickly depleted when the X20 is on its highest setting (in little more than 10 minutes), however the lowest setting is more than capable enough to tackle daily dust and dirt, the battery is also replaceable if needed.
The X20 performed best on hard floors, it manoeuvres easily around and underneath furniture and its lightweight design makes it comfortable to handle for extended periods of time. However, the X20 did struggle more on carpets with mid to deep pile, especially with finer dirt and some hair, you may find yourself going over the same spot multiple times and still missing some bits. Like everything these days it comes with an app, this is not essential for use, it will basically tell you the battery and filter life as well as stats on how long you have been cleaning for and the surface area covered, interesting but not necessary.
The light-sensitive LED lighting automatically comes on in a dark corner or under the sofa making it easier to spot debris, the dust bin is a little on the small side at just 400ml which means you will have to empty it out regularly. The X20 is a solid midrange option, the suction power is reasonable, the battery life is good, and the wide range of attachments give you plenty of cleaning options, the mop feature is handy but it is a little tricky to get to grips with so don’t let this be the main reason you choose this vacuum. £324.99
