Update 04. April 2020
Roidmi has announced the global launch of the NEX 2 Pro. The cordless vacuum cleaner will appear globally as the Roidmi X30 Pro. Initially, the vacuum cleaner will go on sale on Indiegogo. Early birds can pre-order it there for 499 USD (465 euros). The regular retail price is 599 USD (550 euros).
This would make the X30 Pro a good deal more expensive than its Chinese counterpart. It is not yet known when the Roidmi X30 Pro will be available.
The Chinese company Roidmi is part of the Xiaomi ecosystem, for which it produces smart handheld vacuum cleaners. That made the start Roidmi F8 , which we already had tested two years ago. In the meantime, many new cordless vacuum cleaners have been added to the range. The Roidmi NEX 2 Series, with the NEX 2 and NEX 2 Pro, is currently the latest, most powerful and smartest model series from the manufacturer.
Chic design in Space Gey
As always, the design is a matter of taste, but the Rodimi Nex 2 Pro definitely doesn't need to hide. This is also shown by the numerous design awards (including Red Dot, iF) that the cordless vacuum cleaner has already been able to claim for itself. The color of the Pro model is a particular eye-catcher. Instead of plain white, there is a chic space gray, combined with a black brush attachment. The dimensions of the vacuum cleaner are 1191 x 259 x 164 millimeters. The weight is a pleasant 2.7 kilograms. In comparison, a Dyson V11 weighs just under 3 kilograms.
Status via OLED display
A smarter status display was introduced with the NEX 2 Series. The Roidmi NEX 2 Pro has installed a brightly colored OLED display for this. Information on the remaining battery, error messages, the filter status and the remaining capacity of the dust container can be seen in no time at all. Whether it was a good decision to place the display below the handle and not, as with models from other manufacturers, at the top of the vacuum cleaner will be shown in the test. As with the previous models, this cordless vacuum cleaner can also be managed and operated using an app.
High 26500 Pa suction power
The new Engine-X 2.0 motor makes the Roidmi NEX 2 Pro one of the most powerful cordless vacuum cleaners. The manufacturer specifies the suction force as 26.500 Pa (150 AW). Again in comparison with the Dyson V11, whose suction force is 24.000 Pa (140 AW). According to Rodimi, the noise development should be 77 dB (A).
The new BMS-X 2.0 battery system is also used so that the cordless vacuum cleaner does not run out of juice after a short distance. A total of 8 high-quality Samsung / LG cells make up the 2500 mAh (72 Wh) battery. In standard mode, the running time should be up to 70 minutes, which in turn corresponds to an area of 450 m². At the highest level, the running time is reduced to 10 minutes. The magnetic charging cradle charges the battery within 2.5 hours.
NEX-V floor nozzle and wiping
The orange (main) bristles of the brush roller are arranged in a V-shape to trap dirt in notches and hard-to-reach areas. An LED strip on the floor nozzle facilitates orientation in the dark. The electric floor nozzle can also be equipped with a mopping attachment. The mopping attachment is a combination of a water tank and a microfiber cloth that is held magnetically to the floor nozzle.
The dust container has a capacity of 0.55 liters. The trapped dirt is passed through 6 filters. Two HEPA filters trap particularly fine particles so that they are not released back into the environment. The removable dust chamber can be emptied at the push of a button. The Roidmi NEX 2 Pro is suitable for cleaning hard floors, carpets and upholstery. The scope of delivery includes 5 attachments and extensions for various purposes.
Rodimi NEX 2
The economy model of the NEX 2 Series dispenses with the great Space Gray look and is only available in white. The other differences are in the details. Instead of an OLED display, there is only an ordinary LED display. The included attachments make a further difference. The flexible extension with animal hair attachment is not included.
Roidmi presents two very competitive cordless vacuum cleaners. In addition to the chic design and the remarkable performance, what catches the eye are the prices. The NEX 2 is available from 2099 yuan, which is the equivalent of 275 euros. The NEX 2 Pro in turn costs 2499 yuan, which corresponds to about 325 euros. Of course, these are the Chinese sales prices, which are not taken over in this way. It is also not (yet) known to what extent the Roidmi NEX 2 Series will appear in western markets. But the chances are good. All previous models have also appeared in this country. So it remains to be seen what awaits us in the coming weeks.
