If you want to feel the real power of the tested vacuum cleaner, you should just fire up Eminem's “The Real Slim Shady” and let Mr. Slim stand up. Pay your respects and respect, because from now on, your nightmare of rolling clouds of western dust is a thing of the past. Please, stand up Xiaomi Mi Robot Vaccum-Mop!
Puffs of dust from under the wardrobe? Never again!
Everyone knows this feeling: guests will be in half an hour, and here you still need to vacuum! Whoever has never swept crumbs and dust off the floor under the bed or wardrobe at the last minute, let them throw the stone first. This brilliant plan can be dispelled in a flash by a breath of fresh air from an open window. Oh God, what a shame! The attention of all guests is attracted by a large cloud of dust that flew from under the wardrobe straight into the center of the dance floor. A real party breaker! Some guests pretend that nothing happened, others look nervously at the watch, and others hide a grimace of smiles under their noses. You already know what they'll talk about when they leave ... What a nightmare!
Mr. Slim. It means: Xiaomi Mi Robot Vacuum-Mop
Fortunately for me it's just a bad dream from the past. I once experienced this feeling myself. But know that recently, when I dream about a memorable party with a cloud of dust, I wake up with a grimace of a smile. For several days, a device that like the title slim shadow flashes around my apartment. Xiaomi Mi Robot Vacuum-Mop, nicknamed Mr. Slim (Siajomi low inspection mate), wakes up every day after leaving work and makes sure that more dust sleep does not materialize. Do you know why? Because it cleans even where there is an abyss of clouds that remember furnishing the apartment.
The real slim!
Xiaomi Mi Robot Vacuum-Mop is a real thinner in the family of cleaning vacuum cleaners. It has no top radar and this means that its total height is only 8,2 cm. Undoubtedly, this is its main advantage. The robot fits perfectly under all cabinets on legs, under which you promised to clean yourself on the previous holidays. I even managed to tune the bed, thanks to which Mr. Slim is already vacuuming the entire living room area. You probably wonder how the Vacuum-Mop handles terrain orientation without the top locator? Well, pretty good. Xiaomi has equipped the vacuum cleaner with the Visual Simultaneous Localization and Mapping Algorithm (vSLAM), which task is to analyze data from 15 sensors, creating an image built from over 30000 environmental points. Performing 50 operations per second, he maps the cleaned surface and improves his map each time. Thanks to this, it chooses the optimal cleaning path.

Mi Robot Vacuum-Mop These are the data
In fact, sometimes it takes him a bit longer to bump each corner exactly. However, as I mentioned, when he does it several times, he improves his line of morning charge. I watch it, among others after decreasing time every day necessary to clean the whole apartment. Valuable information for fans of various types of floors is the ability to overcome thresholds with a height of up to 20 mm.
I'll do what you want
Pairing and operation of the vacuum cleaner are child's play. I had the opportunity to work with Xiaomi Mi Robot Vacuum-Mop in the Mi Home application environment, in which its configuration is very intuitive. The lower drop-down menu bar has access to cleaning mode, water level settings, cleaning schedule, map management and alerts. In fact, that's enough for a typical user. However, if someone would like to bring Mr. Slim a beer from the kitchen, he will find the remote control function in the drop-down menu. There are also many more functionalities, but it is impossible to describe everything, because it is rather used for really crazy users and is identical to similar devices.
Technically, the robot is up to the challenge. The main parameter, i.e. the suction power, is satisfactory. In "Turbo" mode it reaches up to 2500 Pa. Unfortunately, this translates into a slight noise. When choosing the golden mean, I recommend the normal mode. In the silent mode, the vacuum cleaner does not pick up major dirt such as sunflower seeds.
Mopping is still a limiting field of cleaning robots, because the floor is only slightly moistened, even in high mode. To mop a surface, you need to install a water dispenser to which a microfiber cloth is attached with Velcro. During the tests, my floor may not have been in the Ultra Nano-Cleaned for NASA class, but it was relatively clean, and yet the cloth had to be washed every several square meters. I have the impression that "manual" mopping with an analog mop of the "stick and rag" type could be more effective.
Servicing Xiaomi Mi Robot Vacuum-Mop comes down to cleaning brushes and containers, which is carried out just like in most Xiaomi cleaning robots. I will not write here, because it has already been discussed many times. However, if someone were a lazy like me, they would find pictogram instructions on every element that requires handling. It even captivated me because I'm of the opinion that smart devices are smart when they save us every nanosecond of time. Simple instructions definitely do it. A nice touch is the gesture of the manufacturer, who tried and added a comb with a knife to remove hair tangled in brushes.
Summary of Mi Robot Vacuum-Mop
For the user who requires the cleaning robot to clean up every forgotten corner so that no dust remains under the cabinet, Xiaomi Mi Vacuum-Mop is the perfect solution. Its size makes it fit easily under most wardrobes, and even under the bed, with only 8,5 cm. The downside is mopping, which is a gadget rather than a real relief from the obligations of everyday life. Maybe a better solution would be to use a mechanism borrowed from a car wash, or maybe just add a few cloths in stock? I leave this answer to you, the readers. I invite you to discussion!
