Jimmy H8 Pro is one of the best upright vacuum cleaners made in China, offering a wide range of accessories and high performance. It has an intelligent mode that allows the device to automatically recognize the type of surface to be cleaned and, accordingly, automatically adjust the suction power. Moreover, its maximum autonomy reaches 70 minutes. Is this your dream vacuum cleaner for quick everyday cleaning?
In this review, we take a look at the main features of the Jimmy H8 Pro, which outperforms many of the competition due to its excellent price-performance ratio. As a result, the quality of cleaning matches the level of Dyson vacuum cleaners, but the price tag is noticeably lower than that of premium products from top brands. And if you have any doubts about this part, just read this text to the end.
Complete set and design
The Jimmy H8 Pro comes with enough accessories to suit every need of the modern housewife. In addition to the motor unit of the vacuum cleaner, the box contains the necessary nozzles and extension tubes with hinged adapters to create flexible joints: vacuuming under the closet and under the bed will become noticeably easier than with the vertical models of previous generations.
The Jimmy H8 Pro version repeats the design of other products of the Xiaomi sub-brand, but unlike them, the H8 Pro model turned out to be more compact. The quality of materials is at a height and is not inferior to top-class vacuum cleaners, and the assembly of the vacuum cleaner is carried out literally in seconds. Moreover, you can independently come up with the most suitable configurations to make cleaning convenient: the accessories in the kit allow you to give free rein to your imagination.
Jimmy H8 Pro is dominated by metal and plastic, and the main brush, coupled with the articulated tube, makes it easier to interact with the vacuum cleaner for any type of cleaning. Please note that the complete turbo brush has some of the features that you might find in more expensive cyclone vacuum cleaners. In particular, the solution with an integrated comb opposite the rotating roller prevents animal hair from tangling and hair from being wrapped around the motorized roller. This will avoid frequent maintenance and removal of hair from moving parts.
Ease of use
The assembled vacuum cleaner weighs no more than one and a half kilograms and is equipped with a classic pistol grip, which makes it easy to use. You do not need to hold the trigger for the device to work – just press the device activation button once and Jimmy H8 Pro will work until you end the session with another press.
The control keys are located above the LED display, where basic information about the status of the vacuum cleaner is displayed (the selected cleaning mode and the remaining battery charge are displayed here). In addition, we note that the components of the vacuum cleaner are designed in such a way that they can be quickly disassembled and washed. For example, the same HEPA filter is very easy to dismantle and change to a new one (it is recommended to change it at least once a year and remember to clean it regularly).
The vacuum cleaner also has a convenient replaceable battery. By the way, you can buy another one and double the autonomy of Jimmy H8 Pro. Thus, while one battery is charging, you can continue cleaning with the spare. The battery can be charged in two ways: on a separate docking station that comes with the kit, while removing the battery from the vacuum cleaner; or charge it directly without removing it from the device. This is true if the vacuum cleaner is on the docking station.
Cleaning power and quality
The Jimmy H8 Pro motor is a brushless solution and is capable of delivering 160 AW (air watts) at 10,000 rpm. With this power, you definitely won’t have to vacuum the apartment twice, because such a high traction force allows the device not to leave a single gram of dust on the floor. However, at maximum suction the vacuum cleaner can seem quite noisy, howling at an impressive 80 dB.
We recommend not to get carried away with cleaning in the maximum power mode, but to use the automatic power mode, which is suitable for most typical dirt. In this mode, the vacuum cleaner’s sensors themselves decide to increase the power, depending on the amount of dirt detected and the type of surface to be cleaned (for example, when moving from a laminate to a carpet, the vacuum cleaner independently adds traction).
Ultimately, even the trivial cleaning of the room ceases to seem like a torment to you, because it does not take a lot of time. Vacuuming the floor? They took off the extension tube, connected the nozzle for upholstered furniture, and in a few minutes the space around you is replete with such purity that you can breathe more freely. Allergy sufferers will love the Jimmy H8 Pro, coupled with a sealed design and filtration to keep dust particles out of the container.
And the last, no less important parameter is the operating time on one battery charge. We have already mentioned above that you can purchase another battery in reserve to increase the cleaning time. But, what if you didn’t want to spend on an additional purchase? What cleaning time should I expect?
The Jimmy H8 Pro battery consists of 7 lithium cells with a total capacity of 3000 mAh. In theory, this allows you to use the vacuum cleaner for 70 minutes without recharging. But only in a gentle way and without the use of motorized brushes. As a rule, in most cases, you will use just such attachments. Therefore, the final autonomy will be about 40 minutes. In turbo mode, this parameter is halved, and at maximum operating mode – almost three times.
Also, keep in mind that it takes a long time to fully charge the battery, as with all devices of this type: it can take 4 to 5 hours to replenish the energy from 0 to 100%. So having a spare battery on hand seems like a smart move. Especially if you have to clean up in a large apartment and a two-story country house.
The Jimmy H8 Pro Upright Vacuum Cleaner will cost you almost half the price of the top model Dyson V11, but at the same time it offers more accessories and comparable power (25,000 Pa) with very effective cleaning quality. This model has only two drawbacks: not the most convenient base, on which it will not be possible to place all the accessories, and long battery charging. However, the second problem can be solved by purchasing a spare battery.
