ROIDMI F8 VACUUM CLEANER
Do my eyes deceive me or is this a cordless vacuum cleaner that hasn’t been designed by an English guy who hates bags? Yes, the F8 does indeed seem to be a “high performance” cordless vac from a Different Manufacturer. And that manufacturer is the Chinese megacorporation, Xiaomi.
Well, the fact it isn’t a Dyson and so costs about a third of what a Dyson costs, is right up there. It has 18.5 kilopascals of centrifugal air pressure, according to the marketers who seem not to know how those words are supposed to go together. But who cares? It’s white! Oh and it probably vacuums reasonably well.
The F8 is supposedly powered by a Samsung Li-Ion battery but let’s be honest here: it’s going to wear out in a year, max. And like the Dyson vacs, the bumf all says “55 minutes vacuum time!” but when you get to the small print it admits yeah okay, only 10 minutes on “max mode” which is what anyone with an actually dirty house needs.
