Xiaomi Mijia 1C battery-powered vacuum cleaner with 20,000 pa for $228.50

Hey, guys! Just a heads up: The linked offer is already a bit older and the price of the gadget might have changed or it might not be available anymore.

Once upon a time there was a Chinese company called Xiaomi, which brought very powerful battery-powered vacuum cleaners with a chic design and top workmanship onto the market through several subsidiaries and third-party suppliers. Then they decided to handle it the same way as with smartphones: Many model versions, short product cycles and confusing model names. And so they developed the Xiaomi Mijia 1C.

Inventiveness ending at Xiaomi?

Perhaps a bit lurid the headline, but expresses our current feeling to the umpteen battery vacuum cleaners of Xiaomi. One would think that the many partner companies of the Chinese tech giant would also bring more innovations to light, but at the moment there are rather many versions with different technical data sheets:

  • The strong Dreame V9 was followed by the V10, which can only be regarded as an optimized predecessor version. Also the V9P is difficult to classify.
  • Those who still have an overview of the Jimmy models with their many colour combinations and different product designations must work at Jimmy.
  • After the F8, Roidmi launched the Roidmi NEX as an innovative device on the market, but with various Lite versions it also causes more confusion than sales.
  • Now the Mijia 1C. And as you can see from the technical data in the table above: The similarity of the “inner” values to Xiaomi’s European model, the Mijia handheld, is amazing. To round the whole thing off and further
  • complicate it, the look is also almost identical (or completely identical?).
The Mijia Handheld …
…and the 1C. Who finds the difference?

Sure, the Mijia handheld is a good to very good model, of course you can offer a different version. 20.000 pa suction power compared to 23.000 pa for 30, 40 dollar less? Why not? What also speaks for the 1C is the half an hour longer battery life of one hour and the 0.5 l dust chamber compared to 0.4 l of the Mijia handheld.


A longer battery life is more important than the difference in suction power. Accordingly, one could say that the 1C could even be the better model of both. Of course you can’t say that exactly at a distance and without a test model. In general, Xiaomi hasn’t deceived much about battery life yet.

We are neither convinced nor particularly taken with this model. If it were up to us, Xiaomi wouldn’t have produced this umpteenth model. But since there were so many questions on your part about the vacuum cleaner, we didn’t want to withhold an article about it from you. Are you annoyed by the current product range or are you happy to have such a large selection?

I'm interested in Gadgets, that make our life at home easier - especially when it comes to cleaning the floor or the windows. I was able to test about fifty robot vacuum cleaners since now.

    I agree, Xiaomi has too many models. I didn't even realize that the Mijia & the Mijia 1C were different. What is Roidmi then?

      Hi ZX Ding, Roidmi is like the "flagship-brand" of Xiaomi with LEDs, App control and mopping function
