Today I will talk about an interesting home product from Xiaomi. I think that each of you knows that the Xiaomi brand produces not only smartphones and smart wearable devices but also vacuum cleaners. Xiaomi smart vacuum cleaner has already heard about robots, but what about a handheld cordless vacuum cleaner? Today we will talk about this and the device has received the interesting name Xiaomi Jimmy JV71.
A few months ago I talked about such a vacuum cleaner, only the sub-brand was Dreame, and today is the new Jimmy. Why does Xiaomi have so many sub-brands for similar products, I can not give an exact answer to this question. But in this article, I will try to find out the main differences between the new Jimmy JV71 and Dreame V9P.
The price for the Xiaomi Jimmy JV71 cordless handheld vacuum cleaner will be around $250. Of course, the price tag is not small, but as the manufacturer promises, the new vacuum cleaner is the most powerful device in this price range.
The new Jimmy JV71 handheld vacuum cleaner received 400W power and suction power of 130AW. The vacuum cleaner works due to an electric brushless motor with a maximum speed of 100,000 rpm. There are also dual dust collectors of 0.5 liters each and the battery life at the optimal load will be about 40 minutes.
Before telling the results of my apartment and car cleaning tests, I want to start by unpacking and looking at the cordless vacuum cleaner.

Xiaomi Jimmy JV71: Unboxing
A fairly voluminous and heavy box came to my review, where on the front part you can see a sketch of the vacuum cleaner and the name of the model. A box looks very simple and not attractive, but most home goods have a typical box look. For example, monitors, TVs, air purifiers and many other devices.
Inside the box, each element was packed in a separate plastic bag and polystyrene was present for safe transportation.
Here I found a cordless vacuum cleaner itself, two separate brushes, where one is a composite brush and the other is a furniture tick removal brush. The kit also includes three different nozzles – this is for a sofa, a roof and flat nozzles for hard-to-reach spots. I was surprised to have a flexible long hose, like a conventional vacuum cleaner. In addition, there is a charging dock and a power adapter.
I want to note that the docking station does not need to be nailed to the wall, it is simply placed on a flat surface and holds the vacuum cleaner in an upright position. Convenient and most importantly, without unnecessary troubles.
Xiaomi Jimmy JV71: Design
The first thing the Xiaomi Jimmy JV71 cordless vacuum cleaner stands out with is its color combination. Typically, such devices are white and gray. But the sub-brand Jimmy abandoned the typical colors and presented his device in a color design – gold, gray and red.
It looks unusual and stylish, even stands out a little, but this is only the first time in operation.
The body of the Jimmy JV71 vacuum cleaner is made of plastic and magnesium alloy. Therefore, the weight of the device does not exceed 1.1 kg, so it is not as difficult to carry or lift as a stationary vacuum cleaner. In addition, at the bottom, there are wheels that help to roll the device without lifting it.
At first glance, it may seem that the design is very complex, but in fact, it is not. It is easy to assemble and disassemble, and cleaning from dust and debris has become even easier.
The center of gravity is shifted to the bottom of the cordless vacuum cleaner. The new generation received two removable dust collectors of half a liter each. Therefore, you do not have to clean them every cleaning. And the container cleaning itself is very simple and easy.
An optional flexible hose is supplied. It will be convenient for it to clean inaccessible high places, for example, a ceiling or curtains.
There is one button on the base of the handle that switches between cleaning modes. The Xiaomi Jimmy JV71 model has only two modes – this is standard and turbo. Switching is simple – you just need to press the button once and you don’t need to hold the button.
Naturally, the cordless vacuum cleaner does not have any cables, but only a built-in battery. In our case, there are 6 lithium-ion batteries with 2500 mAh.
Each element of the vacuum cleaner is assembled efficiently and definitely worth the money. It is easy to control, and there is no need to configure anything additionally since this is not a robot vacuum cleaner.
Jimmy JV71 does not have applications and additional functions, only one control button. Therefore, the model is well suited for older people who do not want to steam with settings and controls.
Xiaomi Jimmy JV71: Performance and Cleaning
The new cordless handheld vacuum cleaner has an electric motor power of 400 watts. The suction power was 130 AW and maximum revolutions of about 100,000 rpm.
Today it is the most efficient vacuum cleaner from Xiaomi. For home cleaning, there is enough power. It also easily transforms into a compact vacuum cleaner that you can take into a car and do the cleaning there.
The battery life is high, for example, with the standard mode, Xiaomi Jimmy JV71 worked for me about 40 minutes, and with turbo mode – about 8 minutes. For daily cleaning, the standard mode is enough. In rare cases, you can turn on the maximum mode for very dirty places.
The manufacturer guarantees that on one charge the vacuum cleaner is able to remove about 350 meters squared. This is the area of a large house. If you have an area of about 40 square meters, like mine, then he will be able to clean the apartment several times without recharging. The charging time will be about 5 hours.
Three nozzles with various nozzles are included. To replace each, you just need to press the button and the nozzle itself is disconnected from the main body. These nozzles have different sizes and each of them is well suited for hard-to-reach places, for example, for cleaning in an interior car.
There are four filter elements inside the vacuum cleaner body. The first is a metal mesh for primary filtration. Next comes the cyclone filter, which will drive the dust through the dust collector. Then there is a standard HEPA filter and the last MIF filter for additional purification of air from small particles of impurities.
The maximum noise level is high and reaches up to 75 dB. It makes a noise like an airplane, but it is in maximum working mode. During standard mode, the noise is much less.
I would also like to talk about an additional brush for deep cleaning furniture. It is able to even suck in bed mites by 99.9%. This extra brush has a separate electric motor, which twists the brush inside to 14,000 rpm. It is easy to use and changes with the click of a button.
Naturally, the Xiaomi Jimmy JV71 cordless vacuum cleaner is designed only for dry cleaning and wet cleaning is not here.
The quality of cleaning is high for its class. The large debris is easily cleaned, for example, various cereals, such as rice, buckwheat, and others. The small debris, such as flour, will be cleaned in two passes, which is also good.
Of course, if you do not remove animal hair on a hard surface, but on a carpet with a large pile, cleaning will not be a strong point for Jimmy JV71.

I liked the appearance of the vacuum cleaner, a large number of nozzles, simple use, good battery life, and sufficient power.
I think that this device should be in every home to quickly and easily do the cleaning of an apartment or car. In general, I am satisfied with all the parameters given its low price.
