Xiaomi Robot Vacuum X10+: a new multipurpose robot vacuum cleaner
The manufacturer remains interested in the connected home and announces the launch of the Robot Vacuum X10+. The latest addition to Xiaomi’s line of robotic vacuum cleaners, this versatile cleaning device comes with a smart station. It’s capable of emptying trash into your bin, cleaning your mop, and keeping it damp; or fill the water tank, keep the cloth damp and dry to avoid musty odors.
Xiaomi specifies that its robot vacuum cleaner adapts to all types of floors, thanks in particular to its fringed mop that can be lifted when the integrated ultrasonic sensor detects a carpet. From a technical point of view, the manufacturer mentions a vacuum cleaner power of 4000 Pa and specifies that the two rotary mops can sweep under pressure. This should help remove the toughest stains.
