If I had an HDFC card I wud have got a 2k off, yet wouldn't have come anywhere near the deal I got in FK.

I got similar deals for the iPad Air and a Samsung WM. I stayed up till 2AM buying them, cos from previous experience I knew that the best deals in FK happen in the first few hours.

Looks like a massive stock clearance strategy before they introduce the Mop 2 Pro version, albeit at a hefty price.

That's an amazing deal. I did purchased from Amazon with cashback and card offer the final bill was 17.5k.

Was testing the Vacuum and Mop options for couple of day and found Vacuum is very good (we cleaned the house with broom before testing and it still picked up lot of fine dust. Mopping is ok, not bad and not great. It takes approximately 1 min per square meter for Vacuum and mop together and consumes approx. 25% of battery for a 40Sqm house.

Strange and funny incidents:
1. Switched off the docking station while the robot is performing its job. After cleaning it came back to docking station, and then it started behaving weird as if its lost, started moving to random place and searching for docking station . Had to switch on the docking station, stop the robot from docking and again asked it manually to move to docking station from the app. We were laughing at it

2. Restricted it for bathrooms. I was like lets play with it and see if the restriction really works. Opened one bathroom door. Voila, it went inside bathroom and immediately it realized that's a no-go zone and jumped back to the room (bathroom floor is 1 inch lower to room floor)

Did you find a solution for this?

The "Add consumables" button is not working for me as well. Nothing happens when I click it.

Re: Mi Robot Vacuum-Mop P Review

I received the 2 hepa filters I ordered yesterday. I ordered the same on 29th of September and received a mail to make payment on 30th. I made the payment same day and yet it took a good 12 days to deliver. Part of the issue lied with the DTDC carrier who were pretty slow to carry it from Bangalore to Ranchi (10 days)!

I managed to add the consumables and submit the form. I'm not exactly sure what was the issue, but you could also try exactly what I did.

I contacted mi customer care on the phone and spoke about the issue. The customer care guy checked at his end and he was able to add consumables. He asked me to try through a pc after signing into my mi account on the browser.

I went a little further and did exactly the following:
1. Cleared site data for all mi.com, miservicemanager, xiaomi and Xiaomi/Mi related web pages in Google Chrome.
2. Signed into my mi account through the mi robot product page.
3. And went to this link on another tab.

This time, all the buttons in the web page were clickable and I was able to add the required consumables.

I suspect the issue was with the stored site data, but I'm not 100% sure. You could try following the same steps, and could probably get it working. And I suggest you do it on a pc and not through your phone/mi app.

Did exactly as you have typed and still no change. I spoke to their tech support and they said they will verify and contact me again within 4 hours.

Still don't understand why they can't just add it on their main site itself. Especially when their spares for the water purifier are all easily accessible.

Oh well. The wait continues

That's a bummer

Yes, they should've made it a lot easier to purchase. Even though I have submitted the form, I still haven't been contacted for payment and order confirmation.

The wait continues for me as well

Re: Mi Robot Vacuum-Mop P Review

I have installed a bigger water tank (550 ml capacity) on my Mi Mop P. It's actually for Viomi models, but also works perfectly with Mi Mop P as well. Really useful if you are using the robot for mopping, since the water tank of the stock 2 in 1 compartment is too small (only around 200 ml). I'm inserting the amazon link here

I have asked for two hepa filters since I see that the existing one is quite grimy. I clean it using gentle brush attachment with my old Eureka Forbes .
After 2 weeks I am very happy with the machine. Cleans part of my house, which is fairly large. I use it for about an hour a day. Our dogs are a little scared of it, and it has scooped up all the fallen fur from every corner

Re: Mi Robot Vacuum-Mop P Review

As someone who has been using Dyson for past 1year and purchased this Mi vac & mop just a week before -- I'm not at all satisfied with the robotic vacuum cleaner's performance

In fact, there's no comparison to both - Dyson's performance is stellar & extremely efficient, it picks up dust from nooks/corners/carpets/sofa/bed/walls/windows which I've been not aware of. After 1 round of Dyson usage, the dust compartment is full with debris/dust from all over, and floor looks so clean that I don't feel the need to mop it.

Carpets/doormats etc. go back to pristine new condition after a round of Dyson usage, whereas this Mi one has been a letdown. Its cleaning is just average, maybe 35% of Dyson efficiency.

Moreover, the battery goes down to 30% or so within vacuuming just a room and it runs back to dock. And when I try to zone it room-wise and make it learn 1 room after another, it just cleans up the edges of the room and declares this room is done!

Maybe I've to explore the app a little more, and try to make use of the bummer in whatever better ways possible.

Advise to me from 2weeks back (if that were possible) -- DON'T go for the robotic VC.... IF you own a Dyson -- you'd be terribly disappointed

This is very unusual behaviour and I'd suggest you contact customer care. For reference our Mi Vacuum does the entire house (800sq.ft) in one go using up 70% of the battery, and zoning the rooms makes it clean not just the insides, but it cleans the boundary lines of the zones twice!

Not having used a dyson (way too much for me to afford), i can't compare the cleaning efficiency but the battery consumption seems to be off in your case.

Unless i go for the higher power modes, i am able to clean my entire ground floor without losing power completely.

Please check if you have any firmware updates pending. Also i assume this is with wifi connected.

And yes, please do check with the mi tech support team as well.

We are very happy with the product It's been a year now i guess.
