Features of the Xiaowa E35 Robot Vacuum
Strong suction power
The suction power is among the highest from the industry. It comes with a motor which is rated with 2000 Pa. This is strong enough to adequately remove of dirt, especially when cleaning low-pile carpeted floors and areas with rugs. You will need this kind of power to suck up dirt when cleaning hallways or the children’s playroom, as these areas often have dirt that defies most robot vacuums with low power.
When you don’t require the strong suction, you can always set the vacuum to lower sweeping levels. Modes include silent, normal, strong, and maximum, with “maximum” mode being the highest. Lower suction levels also mean lower noise levels. From the silent to maximum mode, the vacuum moves through 60 dB to 68 dB.
The Xiaowa E35 features a 14.4V, 5200 mAh lithium-ion battery. When full, the battery will run the vacuum for 2 and a half hours before it needs to be recharged. This time is one of the longest you can get from a robotic vacuum. Uninterrupted cleaning is especially helpful when you have large areas to be vacuumed. The battery takes about 3 hours to attain full charge. The “juice” comes directly from the charging dock the vacuum comes with. The dock outputs 20V at 1.8A, and can be plugged to a 100-240 power outlet.
Large dust bin
With a capacity of 21 oz (0.64 liters), the dustbin of this vacuum is among the largest you can get. It’s even larger than the bin of most cordless vacuums. This allows it to clean large rooms without worrying about the dust filling up. The large capacity is also useful when cleaning areas that harbor a lot of dirt. These include your children’s play areas and the pet’s resting place.
Highly efficient filtration
The Xiaowa E35 comes fitted with a HEPA E11 filtration screen. The filter is washable, and can be replaced once it gets worn out. It serves to ensure the air in your home is free of dust and other particles after the vacuuming process. It does this by trapping the tiniest of the vacuumed particles. The result is that only clean, dustless air comes out of the vacuum.
The vacuum is a compact size, measuring 13.9 inches in diameter and 3.6 inches in height. I would’ve preferred a smaller height. It weighs a mere 6.6 lbs and is lightweight enough for easy storage and portability.
The Xiaowa E35 comes backed by a 1-year warranty.
On buying the vacuum, you will receive the manual, a power cable, a charging station, a cleaning brush, a mop tray with a pad already installed on it and a plastic anti-slip mat which can be connected to the dock. Replaceable parts include an extra filter, an extra mop pad, and a few extra water filters.
Apart from the manual control, the vacuum is built to allow you control the robot remotely by using the Mi Home app. The app is downloadable from app stores and is compatible with both Android and iOS platforms. It connects to the vacuum through a WiFi link to let you start, pause or even cancel the cleaning process. The various features on the app include mapping, voice, carpet recognition, cleaning history and more. Using these functionalities, you can work the vacuum remotely. Capabilities for the remote control include checking the condition of the vacuum and receiving a real-time map of the cleanup. You can also use the app to update the vacuum’s control software and introduce a smarter algorithm.
Connecting to Mi Home app – a small tutorial
Here are the main steps to connect and command the Xiaowa through the Mi Home app.
- Step 1: Install the app, open it and go the the Home Appliances section.
- Step 2: Click on the Xiaowa, input the password of your home network.
- Step 3: Connect to the Wifi of the robot, and then wait for the initialization.
- Step 4: The robot should appear available in the app. Click on it.
- Step 5: Inspect the user interface.
- Step 6: Change the level of suction as you please.
- Step 7: Check live details in the upper part of the screen.
- Step 8: Check the map built based on the readings of the proximity sensors.
- Step 9: Adjust robot settings to match your time zone, volume preferences and cleaning modes.
One of the smart features of the Xiaowa E35 is the return-to-charging-dock functionality. Once the battery discharges to 20%, a mechanism is triggered to take the vacuum to its charging station. It will do this smartly by choosing the shortest path. As soon as sufficient charge is attained (80%), the vacuum resumes its cleaning job. It will remember the last place it cleaned, so will not go over the already worked areas.
For the return function to work well, ensure there are no obstacles to block charging charging station, and see that the dock is adequately held to the wall. Install the provided anti-slip mat so the vacuum doesn’t skid away.
The navigation capability of this vacuum is as good as it can be from a robot with no laser sensor. It comes equipped with two gyro sensors. These high-precision sensors made by EPSON and BOSCH take space measurements to enable the vacuum to move around, while trying to minimize navigation errors. Your robot won’t bump into furniture or tumble down the stairs. A total of 13 other precision sensors offer the internal controller navigation support (IR deceleration, electronic compass, bumper, dustbin detection sensor, cliff sensors, odometer, and so on). They do this by mapping out the area being cleaned to avoid incidences of repeating cleaning lines. The result is an efficient cleanup and exemplary avoidance of obstacles and cliffs.
In addition to sucking up dirt, the Xiaowa E35 comes with a mopping capability. It can carry a small water tank and a mop on its underside. The mop features an automatic absorption where water is drawn to the mop by capillary action. What’s more exciting, you don’t need to turn over the robot to disengage the mop, and you can simply drag it out like a drawer.
The vacuum then mops your floor alongside the sweeping. However, you can stop the mopping action anytime by disabling the feature. You can do so either remotely or manually. Although it can vacuum and mop at the same time, the producer recommends to activate only one function.
The vacuum comes with relatively large wheels. This enables it to climb over obstacles that are as high as 2cm. With this feature, the vacuum will move from a bare floor to a carpeted one with ease. You will love this feature if your home has both bare and carpeted areas.
Pros of Xiaowa E35
- Sweeps and mops concurrently.
- 2.5 hours of battery life, one of the longest on the market.
- Strong 2000Pa suction for efficient cleanups especially on carpet or rugs.
- Large wheels are enabling the vacuum to overcome obstacles that are as high as 2 cm. It allows the vacuum to transition from bare floor to carpet easily.
- Round shape for easier navigation and reduced chances of collisions with furniture and other obstacles.
- Great app control to allow for remote scheduling, real-time monitoring, and software updates.
Cons of Xiaowa E35
- No virtual walls are included in the package
- Map is not as precise as in the case of models with range laser sensor
