Review of 70mai Car Vacuum Cleaner Wireless

Review 70mai Car Vacuum Cleaner Wireless Light Weight Handheld 70mai Auto Vacuum Cleaner 5000Pa Strong Suction for Car Home Useage

Greetings. I would like to share my opinion on 70mai compact vacuum cleaner Swift model. 70mai is a company that is part of the Xiaomi ecosystem and deals only with car accessories (at least for now) — vacuum cleaner, recorders, car compressors, starters, chargers, smart rear-view mirrors, tire pressure sensors and more.

Check The Current Price on Aliexpress

I have a 70mai launcher — a great device, the build quality is impeccable (as always with Xiaomi), everything is very convenient and practical.

I took the vacuum cleaner on the “club day” of the store, then the price was 2 times lower. Before that I already had a UNIT vacuum cleaner, also a car vacuum cleaner, but it worked only from a cigarette lighter, which is inconvenient.

In terms of power, such a vacuum cleaner, of course, cannot be compared with any home vacuum cleaner, but its main plus is compactness, you can carry it with you and you do not need to have a 220V outlet for work.

70mai went further and decided to remove the need for a 12V cigarette lighter as well. Now there is no need to pull wires around the car and burn fuel (although I’m lying, I bought myself a “220V EU plug — 12V cigarette lighter socket” adapter for a long time. I use it for a compact car wash and vacuum cleaner, where there is an outlet nearby, of course).

For some, such vacuum cleaners will always be a toy and I will not lie, a full-fledged vacuum cleaner is much more practical, but it is quite suitable for small cleaning.

Buy 70mai Car Vacuum Cleaner Wireless

It comes in a white minimalist box with the outline of the device and the 70mai logo — nothing ordinary, almost all Xiaomi devices come in such boxes. It’s not a pity to give this one, but it’s a pity to throw it away.

Specifications

Power: 80W (a ridiculous figure, but we have not a half-meter floor brush and 2–3 meters of pipe here, but a minimum of length and a tiny directional nozzle)

Noise level: <= 70dB

Suction power:> = 5kPa

Working voltage: 12 V

Working time: 24 minutes (I didn’t have enough to clean the car, literally 2 minutes, but I filmed a video of cleaning at this time. Under normal conditions, I think it’s enough for 1 cleaning. But it’s not very pleasant when it is cut down, but the garbage is left for a couple of times scratch).

Vacuum cleaner weight: 690 g (weighs decently, but oddly enough, hands do not get tired when cleaning).

Waste container: 100ml (I have never clogged it completely, the HEPA itself clogs up much faster and needs to be shaken out so as not to lose power).

Charging: Type-C 5V 3A (support for quick charge — vacuum cleaner with quick charge — not bad, huh?)

Battery: 7.4V 4000 mAh (28.8Wh) — in fact there are 4 pieces of 18650 Li-ion, most likely 2000 mAh each

Spaces in the box with a stock and I heard that there could be an optional charger from 220 or from a cigarette lighter, a cover for a vacuum cleaner, but I did not have them.

The whole set. Vacuum cleaner with a cover. Type-C cable. Instructions (for the attentive in Russian, there is even. I wish Xiaomi itself realized that the CIS countries are the second in the use of its devices). 2 nozzles — nozzle and brush.

Larger brushes. For various crevices, a nozzle will go, the brush (from experience) removes debris and hair from the carpet and seats well.

Instructions in several languages, including English. Here are a few pages from there.

The body of the vacuum cleaner is made of durable soft touch plastic, made in one piece. Above is the 70mai logo, 3 indicators (1 blinking — it will turn off from minute to minute, 1 — low charge, 2 — sufficient, 3 blinking — full, work is in progress). When charging, by the way, it does not work, which turned out to be a surprise. That is, we have 24 minutes of work, and then we smoke. Moreover, with the discharge, the power also decreases.

On the underside is a Type-C port, all sorts of logos, charging current / voltage. On the sides of the air outlet.

Under the lid is the nozzle of the vacuum cleaner (aka dust collector).

There is a rubber cover on it, which rises during operation and lets dust and debris inside, it is very convenient — it does not scatter debris when tilting and overturning — in the past, the vacuum cleaner was also like this, but it fit more tightly.

All parts of the vacuum cleaner are removed by turning counterclockwise movements. Very comfortably.

We take out the HEPA filter assembly from the garbage receiver. In the vacuum cleaner itself, the blades of the motor are already going further.

Disassembled filter. The upper white part has nets that filter dust. The HEPA filter itself (consumable) has paper blades. Stops the smallest dust particles passing through the mesh and protects the motor itself. Never wash it with water. In my previous vacuum cleaner, I washed it and it became oak — the power dropped noticeably — I had to change it. You can shake it out / knock it out, wipe it, but do not wash it with water. By the way, the mesh is possible and even necessary — it is even written in the instructions.

HEPA is identical to the one in Xiaomi CleanFly (70mai copied it and changed it a little) — you can take consumables from CleanFly (there is a slightly different silicone ring, but it is reusable and you can not change it).

Found a photo comparison of filters. On the left is 70mai, on the right is Xiaomi CleanFly. The only difference is in the bottom white round insert.

The place for waste is only 100ml, which is very small. As I said, enough for 1 time with difficulty. Not to say that it is a big problem, but you should always have access to the trash can.

The attachments fit tightly into the waste container.

Charging with a 5V 3A unit takes about 3 hours. Indicators flash on charge level. Lights up continuously when finished.

Dismantling the vacuum cleaner

Everything is sorted out simply and as quickly as possible, but you need something thin to pry off the plastic on the handle (there are batteries) and a special screwdriver for removing the motor (found this only in a set of Xiaomi screwdrivers — is it a coincidence? — but no, the same is in the Jeremy set, since the $ 0.01 JD Sale). Many parts are removed by turning counterclockwise.

It will not be very convenient to change batteries, everything is much simpler and more convenient in Xiaomi CleanFly.

The wires are thick, soldering is fine. Insulation is really like a plaster.

Batteries from 2019.11.11 — apparently what’s left from the sale. Why is it so kolkhoz glue — a question (rhetorical, of course. E — economy).

2019 Motor, 6V

2 batteries are in the handle, it will be easy to change them, and here are 2 more in the very center of the non-separable case. Can be changed by unscrewing 2 screws with a Phillips screwdriver. It is logical that the batteries are so located for the center of gravity and to save space; the convenience of replacement did not bother anyone here. By the way, no name batteries, Xiaomi had branded batteries.

Demonstration of work (photo before cleaning)

I’ll show you how it was, how it became and how much and what kind of garbage the vacuum cleaner collected.

It makes no sense to vacuum the dirt on the rugs, shake them out, then knock them out, and then I still go over it with a wet brush.

The car has not been cleaned for exactly a year. most of the debris accumulates on carpets.

Small stones are enough — they are removed very quickly. But the grass, grains of sand, feathers / hair — it is very difficult to clean, you need to actively vacuum in order to lift them from the pile. (and it will be so even with a powerful vacuum cleaner).

After cleaning

The driver’s, collected all the large and small stones, barely noticeable grains of sand remained. There was some grime left, after the vacuum cleaner I also wiped the floor and the racks with a wet rag — it became almost perfect. A white spot in the center, a nut — everything was wiped off with a rag.

This is how the dust collector looked after cleaning only from the back. I shook it out about 5 times, probably during the whole cleaning of the car. When a lot of dust and other debris sticks to the HEPA filter, it seems that the power drops a little (this is logical).

Heavier debris in the form of sand and stones is collected in a container.

Lightweight — hair, dust, wool — sticks to the HEPA filter. Easily blown out. I thought the dust would not get beyond this white mesh, but no — inside the cardboard HEPA filter itself, there is also enough tiny dust that has passed through the mesh.

The grid is a good solution. The filter will last much longer. It was not on the previous vacuum cleaner and all the debris directly adhered to the cardboard filter.

Then I cleaned the rear floor and seats. Used only a narrow nozzle. I used the brush only on the seats so as not to leave white marks. Where there was stubborn dirt, I had to scrub a little with a brush.

Removed the front passenger seat. Traces from the brush are visible, where it was necessary to scrape.

I removed all the cars in 30 minutes (I ran tests and I didn’t have enough battery — let me remind you that we only have 24 minutes). The vacuum cleaner removed everything — stones, dust, lint, hair. I didn’t expect that there would be so much dust — everything seemed cleaner.

With sand and any grass / straw, you need to tinker and move the nozzle of the vacuum cleaner well to pick up the debris from the upholstery.

A clear minus is the working time. If you clean your car more often, maybe 24 minutes and it’s fine. The vacuum cleaner is comfortable, hands do not get tired (although it weighs a lot). The impression is controversial, would you take it now? — maybe not even. Although not so: if you have a garage, a summer residence or just access to an outlet — buy Karcher, make money, but you will be happy and you will not regret it even once. Such a small vacuum cleaner did not even stand next to a full-fledged one. Otherwise — such a portable one would be a good choice — compact, does not require an outlet.
That’s all for me, thank you all for your attention!
