Almost half a year after the Roborock S50 is published in Xiaomi "Youpin" Store another suction robot appeared. Of the Xiaowa Suction Robot Youth Edition Although not wearing the Mi-abbreviation in the name again, but comes from "Roborock", a Xiaomi subsidiary that has developed and produced all Xiaomi suction devices so far.

Bye laser room recognition
To meet the budget price of just under 130 €, waived the Xiaowa Youth Edition on a laser room recognition, Instead, the vacuum robot is based purely on a transmitter module, which is located on the top of the housing. This makes it possible to return to the charging station, which is triggered automatically either at the push of a button or at a low battery level (30%). A room map can not be created, which is why no route planning is possible and the cleaning is rather arbitrary!
The collision detection done with the help of a total of 6 infrared sensors, With 50 scans per second, the sensors are able to detect obstacles early. To detect reflective objects, the suction aid is additionally equipped with a front bumper that gently touches obstacles. about 4 more sensors on the bottom The Xiaowa vacuum robot is also able to detect heels and prevent crashes. A room delimitation by means of "Virtual Wall" (Magnetic tape) is supported.
Dirt and dust is over one lateral auxiliary burr and centrally located main brush captured. It is noticeable that both brushes did not differ from the predecessor models and that they are therefore compatible with each other. The Suction power is at 1600 Pa and thus slightly below the first Xiaomi suction robot (1800 Pa) and accordingly also under the Roborock S50 (2000 Pa). Remarkable is again Capacity of the removable dust containerthat at 640 ml lies. In comparison, the Roborock S50 has a capacity of only 480 ml. For the filtration of finest particles, the dust container is additionally with a replaceable HEPA-Filter provided.
The cleaning programs amount to an arbitrary cleaning, a circle cleaning and an edge cleaning. The suction power is adjustable in 4 levels. The sound level is according to first test reports between 59 and 66 decibels. Carpet edges and door sills are overrun with maximum 2 cm height. As soon as the vacuum robot is on a carpet, the suction power is automatically increased. A "Entwirrfunktion" allows the brushes to be rotated in the opposite direction to release them from trapped cables or other obstacles. A wiping function is not available!
