Brigii M1: Handy design
Let's start testing the Brigii M1 right away. Visually, the Brigii handheld vacuum cleaner is a bit reminiscent of a thermos. It can even be put upright like a thermos. The design is space-saving and handy. The dimensions are 57 x 57 x 260 mm and the weight is a moderate 485g.
Brigii M1: scope of delivery
The handheld vacuum cleaner is ideally delivered with accessories. In fact, there are a little more accessories than other brands.
In addition to the vacuum cleaner, it also includes 5 attachments (see photo), a flexible hose, a USB-C charging cable and a practical bag in which the vacuum cleaner and accessories can be stowed. A charger is missing, but you can use any conventional smartphone charger as long as it charges with at least 2 amps.
Brigii M1: mini dust chamber
At the top is the dust chamber with a capacity of 100 ml. There is enough space for fallen potting soil, toast and chips crumbs or dirt in the sofa. In the case of coarse soiling, it is better to use a larger device.
The lid is held in place with a slide lock and can be opened quickly for emptying. You simply knock the trapped dirt into the trash can. It doesn't always work without getting your hands dirty. Hair can get caught in the metal filter and you have to help.
Alternatively, the dust chamber can be completely removed. The metal filter and the HEPA filter are also separable and easy to clean under running water. Replacement HEPA filters are not yet available, but according to Brigii, spare parts will soon be available to order from Amazon.
Brigii M1: Versatile
The Brigii M1 is versatile. Thanks to the compact design and the practical attachments, the handheld vacuum cleaner can even reach places that are difficult to access and which a conventional cylinder vacuum cleaner would not be able to reach. Lamps, cracks in the sofa, cupboards and radiators are easy to clean.
But the Brigii M1 is also a practical companion as a vacuum cleaner on the go, e.g. on longer car journeys. When the kids crumble the car, you have it to hand quickly. Stowed in the bag, it can be easily stowed away with its accessories in the glove compartment.
The suction power, which Brigii specifies as 65 watts or 6500 Pa, also plays a decisive role. That's enough to soak up most of the household dirt. There is only one suction level in total. Press the power button longer and the vacuum cleaner switches on, pressing the power button again switches the handheld vacuum cleaner off. The volume is comparable to a hair dryer on a high level. The suction attachments are simply inserted into the duct of the air inlet.
A special feature of the Brigii M1 is its use as an air pump. Brigii uses the air outlet for this by simply concentrating the air drawn in at the front and blown out at the rear. All attachments can also be attached to the air outlet.
The function has proven to be extremely practical in the test. With the nozzle attached, keyboards or PCs, for example, can be cleaned excellently. The power is also sufficient to inflate air mattresses or balloons.
The 6000 mAh battery is charged via the USB-C socket on the side. Brigii happily points out that a 5V charger with at least 2A charging current should be used. During the charging process, the LED on the power button flashes red. If the LED lights up red continuously, the battery is charged. A full charge takes approximately 4 hours.
The battery life is just under 20 minutes. To say something quickly, the running time is completely sufficient. However, if you want to vacuum an entire car, you have to hurry! When switched on and fully charged, the LED lights up white. When the battery level is low, the LED flashes red repeatedly.
