Xiaomi launches the X20+ and E5 smart robot vacuums – Keep your home clean with minimal fuss

Xiaomi has launched the X20+ and E5 smart robot vacuums in South Africa, offering cutting-edge automated cleaning to those looking to make life easier.

The X20+ is the most powerful smart robot vacuum in Xiaomi’s line of machines thanks to its extensive features, including a base station and many cleaning modes.

Alternatively, the E5 is the most affordable Xiaomi smart robot vacuum, lowering the cost barrier for automated home cleaning.

Thanks to the addition of these two smart robot vacuums, Xiaomi now offers a total of six smart robot vacuums in the country – providing South Africans with an excellent selection for keeping their floors clean and avoiding time-consuming manual labour.

According to the American Cleaning Institute, the average person spends around six hours a week cleaning, with floors being the primary time-sink.

Xiaomi smart robot vacuum cleaners free up your time to focus on other more productive or enjoyable activities – such as hobbies, spending time with the family, or watching your favourite shows.

Understanding what these robot vacuums offer is essential when buying yours – and we have outlined each Xiaomi device, below.

Robot Vacuum E5

One of the new launches, the Xiaomi E5 is the most affordable of the six available Xiaomi devices in South Africa and comes in black and white variants.

It boasts 2,000pa suction power and a 2,600mAh battery – allowing it to run for up to 110 minutes from a full charge and cover approximately 80sqm.

A 400ml dustbin complements this capability and ensures you won’t need to worry about frequently emptying the vacuum.

The E5 is also a great choice for those who struggle with pet hair, as it uses an innovative nozzle design that is resistant to tangled hair.

Rounding out this impressive package is the Xiaomi E5’s mopping capability, which makes it easier to clean a diverse range of surfaces.

At only R2,499, this makes the E5 a great choice for those on a tight budget who still want superior automated home cleaning.

Robot Vacuum X20+

The Xiaomi X20+ is the best choice for automated cleaning with a powerful 6,000pa suction and high-speed rotational mopping.

This allows the X20+ to handle almost any cleaning job with ease.

Refined obstacle detection is also key to the X20+’s offering, ensuring that it can navigate and detect objects with millimetre-level precision – even in low-light conditions.

This helps the X20+ avoid accidents that could require your assistance.

Combined with enhancements made to its station, which let you go up to 75 days between emptying its dustbin and infrequently topping up its water supply, you’ll be able to go about your business without worrying about the X20+.

These features ensure the Xiaomi X20+ is the ultimate smart robot vacuum, easily handling just about any room, floor, or mess.

It is available at an impressive R11,999, making it the ultimate choice for your smart home cleaning.

Robot Vacuum E10

The Xiaomi E10 makes keeping your home clean a breeze thanks to its 2,600mAh battery, 4,000pa suction power, and a water tank with three water flow levels.

These water flow levels ensure that your floors won’t be damaged by excessive water usage and protect floor types such as wood panelling or tiles.

It also provides three cleaning modes for different sorts of messes – including vacuuming, mopping, or a combination of the two.

The combination of these features makes the E10 an incredibly flexible machine that delivers a great balance between features and affordability.

It can cover up to 80sqm per cycle, and thanks to its multiple cleaning modes, the E10 is great for all types of floors.

The E10 is, therefore, a great choice for South Africans living in flats or small homes – and it priced at R3,799.

Robot Vacuum S10

The Xiaomi S10 is a great choice for homeowners with more complex home layouts, thanks to its cutting-edge house layout detection and planning.

This feature uses laser technology to map your entire house and create different zones for more meticulous cleaning.

You can then set it to clean specific zones and avoid others, schedule cleaning times, and set the depth of cleaning for individual zones based on their requirements.

The S10 is notably the first model to boast this feature, and supports it with a powerful 3,200mAh battery and 4,000pa suction power.

This battery lets the S10 leverage its impressive suction power for up to 2 hours at a time.

Three water flow levels then ensure a constant yet precise moisture level that will clean your floors without damaging them.

The S10 is priced at a very reasonable R5,199, making it ideal for any South African.

Robot Vacuum S10+

The Xiaomi S10+ features an impressive 4,000pa suction power and a dual-pad mopping capability that provides superior stain removal.

These dual pads are made from woven fabrics for improved water absorption and rotate at high speeds to emulate manual pressure mopping.

This results in hugely improved cleaning power for dealing with wet and dry stains.

A large-capacity water tank supports this functionality, allowing the S10+ to mop up to 150sqm without needing a refill.

It also has a hugely improved 5,200mAh battery that allows it to cover up to 200sqm before docking to charge, ensuring it can easily cover your home regardless of its size.

Thanks to this, the S10+ can cover multiple different zones and custom cleaning routines without any hassles.

The S10+ is available at an RRP of R8,499, making it a great choice for any South African home.

Robot Vacuum X10+

The Xiaomi X10+ provides excellent automation and cleaning capabilities thanks to its cleaning station.

This station automates dust collection, pad washing, hot drying, and water refilling for almost hands-free usage.

S-Cross AI for 3D multi-dimensional obstacle avoidance expands on this automation, ensuring the X10+ can work around objects in its path.

The X10+ is also equipped with an AI-powered camera that uses algorithms to identify obstacles on your floors and in rooms around the home and adjust its cleaning appropriately.

For example, the X10+ will automatically lift its cleaning pads when it detects carpets, but continue vacuuming.

The X10+ is a great choice for anyone looking to automate floor cleaning and for those with larger homes and varied floor types.

The Xiaomi X10+ is available in South Africa for R17,499.
