Last week I was able to test the cordless handheld vacuum cleaner from Xiaomi and I was left with good emotions. If the Mi G9 gave me a positive impression, what about the flagship model JIMMY H9 Pro?
The JIMMY company has produced a rather interesting model of a cordless vacuum cleaner. In addition, this model of vacuum cleaner was able to surprise me very much, both in terms of performance and in terms of build quality.
Naturally, the Chinese brand JIMMY is under the wing of Xiaomi. Therefore, it is not surprising that the products from JIMMY have a very high-quality assembly and good performance. But the shortcomings did not pass by the new model of the vacuum cleaner called JIMMY H9 Pro.
If you are interested in a new model of cordless vacuum cleaner, like me, then you should definitely read this entire review before purchasing this unit.
The price tag for the JIMMY H9 Pro cordless vacuum cleaner model was $500 with free shipping. As I said, this is a flagship vacuum cleaner, so expecting a low price tag will definitely be superfluous.
Prior to this, JIMMY has produced versions such as the H8 and H8 Pro. But the new generation H9 Pro has received a number of significant changes and, of course, for the better. For example, the engine power has increased from 500 to 600 W, and the suction power has also improved by an order of magnitude from 160 to 200 AW.
In addition, the battery life has increased to 80 minutes in eco mode, and all thanks to the increased battery capacity of 86.4 Wh. There are many other improvements, but I want to talk about them with you in the in-depth and detailed review below.

Unboxing and packaging
The new device from JIMMY is delivered in a rather large cardboard box, which was made in white. On the front of the package, you can find a picture of the device and its name with the main features.
But inside the box itself, all the components were well-packed and neatly packed. Therefore, every brush or accessory was in good condition and without any damage. In addition, I was surprised at the number of different accessories that JIMMY offers us.
For example, here I found – this is, directly, the cordless vacuum cleaner itself, a base for charging a battery with a stand. I was also able to find various brushes such as the main motorized brush, carpet brush, anti-mite brush.
In addition, the delivery set also included various attachments – this is a 2 in 1 crevice nozzle and a nozzle for upholstered furniture 2 in 1. I can also highlight the presence of an articulated main pipe with multi-position adapters. That is, the equipment is very extensive and there is everything you need for a complete cleaning of your apartment or house.
Design, workmanship, and build quality
I think you will be interested to know some of the main features that make the new JIMMY H9 Pro cordless vacuum cleaner stand out a lot. The first positive point is the weight of the device, which does not exceed 1.5 kg. For example, such devices weigh about 3 kg and this weight is almost twice as large as our today’s hero.
From this, I can conclude that using the H9 Pro handheld vacuum cleaner will be much more comfortable and convenient since the weight of the model is very light. But another question emerges from this – from what materials is the vacuum cleaner assembled then? JIMMY company decided to use combined materials in its performance. That is, the vacuum cleaner is made of fairly high-quality plastic and some metal elements.
As for the quality of performance, I did not find any special complaints. The new model of the JIMMY vacuum cleaner has been completely made without any flaws. For example, all bending elements, both on the main tube and on the base of the brushes, had a smooth movement and did not emit extraneous sounds and squeaks.
I also want to draw your attention to the fact that the new model of the vacuum cleaner was made of gray plastic with a combination of orange. These colors give the device a very beautiful and modern look, just like for the 2021 line. Of course, white looks more minimalistic. Although gray is also minimalistic, it is more practical at other times. Since gray plastic will not show traces of use as much as, for example, on white.
On the main body of the JIMMY H9 Pro vacuum cleaner, an LED screen was located, which displays useful information. Here you can see the remaining battery level and the operating mode used. Just below the screen, there are two buttons, where one is to turn the device on or off, and the second is to switch operating modes. In total, the vacuum cleaner received three operating modes, but I will talk about each a little later.
Waste bin capacity has increased from 0.5 to 0.6 liters when comparing the previous JIMMY H8 and H8 Pro models with the new generation H9 Pro. The capacity of the container has not grown so much, but it is still encouraging that there is more dust and debris to fit in and the container does not have to be cleaned so often. There is a HEPA-13 filter element inside the dust container. It can be easily removed and rinsed under running water if necessary.
Another bonus in the JIMMY H9 Pro model is a removable rechargeable battery. Therefore, if you have a large area of a house or apartment, then you can buy a separate battery and replace it if the first battery is completely discharged.
The motorized brush received two types of rollers, which should be changed depending on the surface conditions. That is, one roller serves for hard surfaces such as tiles, linoleum, and others. But another shape of the roller is necessary for soft surfaces such as carpets, carpets and others. Okay, now I propose to talk about the quality of cleaning and the main technical features.
Performance, battery life, and cleaning quality
At the beginning of the review, I already mentioned some of the technical features of the new model of the JIMMY H9 Pro handheld vacuum cleaner. But now let’s talk in more detail about all the questions that interest you.
An improved electric motor with a rated power of 600 watts was installed onboard the device. This is the most common brushless electric motor, which works on the principle of a double cyclone. It is also worth noting that the suction power got a value of 200 AW. This is a pretty good indicator for its class of devices.
Although, if we talk about the value of the suction pressure, then it lies within 25 thousand Pa. Cordless handheld vacuum cleaners of past generations, namely the H8 and H8 Pro models from JIMMY, are of the same importance.
The manufacturer installed an 8-cell battery in the new model of the vacuum cleaner with a total capacity of 3000 mAh or 86.4 Wh. Battery capacity matters a little more than its predecessors. Therefore, the battery life from a full battery charge has become a little longer. And let’s talk about run times in a little more detail.
As I already said, the JIMMY H9 Pro vacuum cleaner received three operating modes – eco, turbo, and maximum. Depending on the mode of operation, the device will have different battery life.
For example, in eco mode, the vacuum cleaner can work for 80 minutes, in turbo mode – half an hour, and in maximum mode – 17 minutes. These values can be achieved if you do not use a brush with an additional electrically rotating roller. But if you use an electric brush, then the battery life will be slightly different from the above. That is, in eco mode, the vacuum cleaner will work for 60 minutes, in turbo mode – 25 minutes, and in maximum mode – 15 minutes. All the same, these are excellent indicators of battery life, as for a cordless vacuum cleaner.
But the full charge time is not a positive side for the JIMMY H9 Pro model. During my testing, it took me 4.5 hours to fully charge from 0 to 100%, which is quite a long time.
As for the cleaning itself, I really liked how the new model of the cordless vacuum cleaner from the JIMMY company copes with the tasks. The suction force was very high, and even large debris was sucked in for no particular reason. In general, cleaning took me about 20 minutes and during this time I managed to clean an area of 80 square meters.
In addition, I liked how the vacuum cleaner cleans up hard and soft surfaces. I have a dog in my house and not every model of vacuum cleaner can clean dog hair. But the JIMMY H9 Pro model easily copes with this task well even on carpets with a large pile.
Conclusion, reviews, pros, and cons
The new model of the flagship JIMMY H9 Pro cordless handheld vacuum cleaner will definitely satisfy you with its work.
On the positive side, I can say that it is very lightweight and easy to clean. I also liked the 90-degree bendable metal hose, which will help you clean up the tightest spots with light comfort.
The most important feature of the new model of the vacuum cleaner is the suction power and the power of the electric motor. Therefore, the quality of cleaning will have a very positive effect on your apartment or house.
In addition, the complete set will definitely not disappoint you, as it has everything you need for complete and high-quality cleaning.
Now for the cons. First of all, I want to talk about the value, which is not the sweetest for a Chinese brand. Therefore, the new model of the JIMMY H9 Pro vacuum cleaner will be a good alternative to Dysons products. Although the latter will not have as many useful features as the new model from the JIMMY brand.
I would also like to receive a second battery in the package, but unfortunately, it is not here. Another disadvantage I can single out is a rather long charging time.
Price and where to buy cheaper?
Currently, the price tag for the new JIMMY H9 Pro cordless handheld vacuum cleaner is $499.99 with a 50% discount. Also, when ordering over $490, you can use a coupon for $70 OFF and the final price will be $429.99.
Overall, I really liked the work of the cordless vacuum cleaner, but the price tag is still quite high. Therefore, I can recommend the device to those whose salaries are above average.
