The versatile cordless handheld vacuum cleaner is very popular even in 2021. Since smart robotic vacuum cleaners sometimes do not do their job 100% well. Therefore, today I want to talk about the updated model of the cordless vacuum cleaner called Xiaomi Mi G9.
The new version of the vacuum cleaner has come to replace the popular Dreame XR model, which I previously tested. Therefore, if anyone is interested in knowing my opinion, then you can read my full review at this link. Today we will focus specifically on the Xiaomi brand, which this time produced its own model of a cordless vacuum cleaner without anyone’s help.
If we talk about the cost, then at present you can buy the Xiaomi Mi G9 vacuum cleaner at a rather interesting price of only $210. Considering that the cost of its older brothers and competitors will cost you a little more, I can’t say anything negative about the price.
But let’s check out the main technical features of the new model. The maximum suction power was 120 watts, and the motor torque reached 100 thousand rpm. Xiaomi claims that the performance of the new vacuum cleaner has increased by 20% compared to the first generation.
But is it? You can find out in a detailed and complete review below. Therefore, I propose to start unpacking and look at all the components and their quality of execution.

|Product size (L x W x H):||1286 x 214 x 256 mm|
Unboxing and packaging
The cordless vacuum cleaner is delivered in a rather bulky package, which is made in white. On the front, you can see a drawing of the device with the designation of the company name and model. There are also icons with basic features. You can find out about all the options below.
I liked that the box comes with color pictures and has a lot of useful information. Typically, Xiaomi manufactures its products in a regular cardboard box. But I think that the new products from the Chinese giant are planning to go to a completely different level and they are good at it.
Inside the package itself, you can find accessories such as various documentation, brushes with cleaning attachments, a metal tube, the body of the vacuum cleaner itself, a wall-mount, and a filter. In general, the equipment is very good, considering its cost, there is everything you need for a complete cleaning of your apartment, house, car or other places. But now let’s talk about how well the vacuum cleaner is assembled.
Design, build quality and materials
Most of the products from Xiaomi are made in white with bright design elements. The new model of the Xiaomi Mi G9 cordless vacuum cleaner is no exception. The body of the vacuum cleaner was made of white matte plastic.
If you take a closer look, then I did not find any defects or problems with the build quality at all. The cordless vacuum cleaner has been well built and has the ideal build for both heavy-duty cleaning and everyday use.
When I first took the vacuum cleaner in hand, I was pleasantly surprised not only by the high-quality plastic and assembly but also by the low weight. For example, an updated device from Xiaomi weighs about 3 kg. Therefore, it was not only comfortable for me to use it but also for my wife and even my child. But the total dimensions of the vacuum cleaner were 1286 x 214 x 256 mm.
The container received a cyclonic design and I think this is a good solution, for a modern 2021 vacuum cleaner. In this case, the capacity of the container was 0.6 liters. This may not be so much, but for several cleanings a week, this volume will definitely be enough for you. In addition, to clear the container from dust, you must press one button at the bottom of the device case.
In addition, a five-stage filter system is located inside the waste container. The main filter element is, of course, a HEPA-13 filter, which can be easily removed and washed if necessary. Also, you can easily rinse the entire container, both from dust and from hair.
As for the filter system itself, it not only retains dust particles with a size of 0.3 microns but also cleans the air. I can also talk about a rather unique new cleaning technology that works thanks to a 12-cyclone separator to filter dust and other dirt.
A useful feature of the new Xiaomi Mi G9 vacuum cleaner is the option of a removable battery. Now you can easily remove the battery and charge it wherever you like. The battery capacity was 2500 mAh and a full charge took me about 3.5 hours. But I will talk about the battery life a little later since it depends on the operating mode used.
Unfortunately, there is no LED or LCD touch screen on the body of the device, but only a three-phase switch. As you might have guessed, the device supports three modes of operation – eco, standard, and turbo.
I also want to share my emotions from various cleaning brushes. In addition to the main brush for cleaning carpets, tiles, or any other surface, there are a number of other different brushes available.
- For example, this is a versatile 2-in-1 brush that can make your cleaning effortless, even in the tightest of places. You can use it to clean your laptop keyboard or car seats.
- The crevice brush or nozzle is used for cleaning furniture products where space is limited. This brush was useful for cleaning the back of the cabinet and the upper corners of the ceiling from dust and other dirt.
- The last and most interesting brush is the furniture brush. It is able to clean pillows, soft products not only from dust and hair but also from dust mites and other parasites up to 99%.
Power, cleaning quality, and battery life
The new generation electric motor is capable of operating at speeds of up to 100 thousand rpm and developing a fairly powerful cyclonic thrust for effective suction force.
Also, the new model of the Xiaomi Mi G9 cordless vacuum cleaner uses a 400W motor. At the same time, the suction power was 9000 Pa or 120 aeroWatts. But will this power be enough for high-quality cleaning of carpets from pet hair? You will find out in just a few sentences.
Here I can also note that in terms of power, it practically does not differ from its competitors. But the price tag is almost three times less than its main competitors such as Dyson.
Okay, I also want to tell you about the noise being made. The manufacturer assures that the maximum noise level was 68 dB. No matter how strange it may sound, but at my maximum operating mode, the noise level was 65 dB.
If we talk about the working time, then the Xiaomi company assures the maximum working time of up to 60 minutes. During my use, the device was discharged in 9 minutes at maximum operation. In 25 minutes during medium cleaning and in 50 minutes during low cleaning. It is worth noting here that I reproduced all measurements with a motorized brush.
Ok, now let’s talk about my cleaning experience and share my emotions with you. My first impressions were quite positive, as the cordless vacuum cleaner easily coped with the tasks on any surface.
For example, I conducted a series of tests, on a hard surface such as parquet, tiles, and linoleum, and did not reveal any problems with cleaning. But on a long-haired carpet, you may have problems, since the power of the vacuum cleaner will hardly be enough.
Conclusion, reviews, pros, and cons
Yes, it may not be the most powerful cordless vacuum cleaner I have tested. But I cannot say that he does not do his job well. The new model of the Xiaomi Mi G9 vacuum cleaner was created for everyday tasks and it copes with them without any problems.
At the same time, it is quite problematic to find a similar device with similar technical characteristics at a tempting cost.
Other positive aspects, I can attribute, are high-quality assembly and materials used. Lightweight and dimensions contribute to easy and comfortable cleaning not only of an apartment but also of hard-to-reach places, for example, a car.
I also liked the runtime and the removable rechargeable battery with fairly fast charging. And the number of different attachments and brushes will help you to easily remove difficult places and objects from dust, dirt, and even dust mites.
Price and where to buy cheaper?
Currently, you can purchase the Xiaomi Mi G9 Cordless Handheld Vacuum Cleaner at a tempting price for only $209.99 with a 30% discount.
Given its insignificant cost, I can definitely recommend the new model of the cordless vacuum cleaner from Xiaomi.
