Powerful stick vacuum, great battery life and awesome value
Coming from several Dyson models that didn’t have enough battery life to do our whole house we gave the Dreame V9 a go. 230 sqm house (mixture of tiles, timber and carpet) is easily done on medium power with some turbo action thrown in where needed. Never runs much below half battery life. I love the 'toggle' style power button option as you had to hold the Dyson button down constantly which was a pain. For the price this vacuum is awesome, and I’ll definitely look at xiaomi models next time I want to buy.

Love this vacuum, awesome performance and an affordable price
We have a labrador that sheds fur wherever he goes. We had a couple of expensive vacuums with pet hair foot (the latest was a Dyson ball). I was sick of the cord and wanted something that I can just use daily (on carpet and tiles) to suck up the fur. The Xiaomi works so well!!! I have had it for about 7 months and I'm so happy with it. If I had to find a negative, it would be that it can get tricky to empty it when you let it fill up too much. Never had any issues with battery or suction. Considering the affordable price I'd say it's a bloody good vacuum.

Great cordless vacuum cleaner
I received this cordless vacuum cleaner 1 1/2 wks ago. It’s very versatile. I use it on carpet and cork. It’s very easy to use. My 10 year old granddaughter loves using it and vacuumed downstairs and the staircase. She demonstrated the vacuum cleaner with the different heads to her Aunty. It hangs on the wall and everything fits together very well. The suction is great. There are three different levels you can use and the maximum suction is very strong. Apparently on the lowest setting you can use it for 60 mins. It has not run out of power yer. I can highly recommend this cordless vacuum cleaner

This is a truly wonderful cordless stick vacuum. I got the carpet head, and it works a treat. I own a Dyson V8 absolute, and it picks up more on the lowest setting, even after going over the carpets with the Dyson on high first. (I had just taken the Dyson apart and thoroughly cleaned it, along with the filters). The battery lasts plenty long enough for my needs. I have absolutely loved the Dyson. I have had it for about 3 years. Times move on though, and Dreame V9 is even better. Especially for the money. It's a great machine. Just don't purchase one from Dick Smith/Kogan. They are rubbish.

Excellent piece of stick
It is amazing how much dust this little stick can pick up. Came with multiple heads and a wall mounting unit. Sleek design and powerful suction. Great after sale customer service as well. I once dropped it and the lid came off. The customer service team sent in instructions right after I contacted them. Easy to clean filter etc. Beats a Dyson any day. Great value for the price.

Great for the price
My first purchase of a stick vacuum and this one was fantastic. Used it on wood floors, car, couch and rug and it worked really well even without the carpet attachment. Compared it to my housemate's Dyson V8 and this one was 1000 times better. The feel of the material is luxurious and the different heads work great.

My first Cordless.....im in love!
Everything was well organized and wrapped in foam gives an excitement of learning how each things work.
After the looks is our first test;
on the beds then sofa using the
mini- motorized nozzle.
1. I cannot believe my bed contain that much dust and lint.
2. no burning or motor smell.
3. the 3 power mode selector, I mostly use 2 then Max to quickly finalize it.
4. the feeling was close to buying a new car, planning to use it on our cars soon....

Only bought this item recently and am genuinely surprised by how well it does the job. I like that its wireless and can reach high places easily. Good value for money
Vacuuming done in a flash
I previously used a corded Dyson but the Dreame does a comparable job at a fraction of the cost. We have floorboards in the home with rugs throughout and being able to hold the Dreame in one hand and the carpet nozzle in the other hand when it is needed is really handy. Had to empty the dust barrel twice and clean the nozzles from long hairs which stopped it spinning but this is expected. The swivel heads made it easier to get into corners. Not having to connect/disconnect the cords made it easier but vacuuming is still a chore.
Amazing Vac, !!I cant believe how good this Vac is. I almost went and bought went Dyson V11, by chance I saw Xiaomi V9 in google!!!!! The best buy. Cleaning is so good!!!!

suction is really strong, battery life is good.
Normally i use lower model for my timber floor and it perform very well. I Purchase carpet head separately for my bedroom, it cost me extra but working better compare with soft roller head in the standard package.

Excellent cleaning and battery life
Having had a Dyson V6 prior to this I can honestly say the Dreame is a far better product in every way. It is quiet, powerful and cleans wooden floors and carpets equally well. Having all the attachments on the wall hanger is a boon.
I have only had the Dreame for 2 months but gets a full workout 3 times a week. It does not get clogged up as much as the Dyson and is easier to empty. It is too early to comment on durabilty but it is very well made plus it does have a hepafilter which the Dyson does not have. The Top line Dysons maybe a better long term bet but also cost more than twice as much.

Far superior to the V6 Dyson it replaced, and cheaper to boot
Had a Dyson V6 hand stick for a while, which had an issue with batteries. Seems a common problem with them.
Having had previous positive experience with Xiaomi products (phones, TV box, USB powerbanks), I bought this. It just *sucks*.
* The charger automatically stops charging when done.
* The multi angle floor head is much better than our V6 Dyson - very quiet and smooth
* Long battery life
Apparently the motor is more powerful than the V8 Dyson's - and it's around half the price...

Great stick vacuum
Very light, easy to use in any room of my house. Comes with lots of accessories, which are easy to switch out. There is also supposed to be a carpet head accessory being released for this vacuum later this year. The three suction settings are great for saving the battery for areas that aren’t too dusty.

Questions & Answers
has it got a power head not a turbo head?
I think I accidentally put some water in the battery compartment while clean-washing this vacuum cleaner. And now, after leaving it for drying 24 hours, and plugging back to charging, this is not starting, and the charging light always stays blinking only at the first step of charge.
Do you guys know, what else could be done? I bought this on eBay and through the seller “oz_accessory”, but now I don’t seem to find the contact details of this seller on eBay (neither any search results come up on google with this seller’s name). Any ideas/suggestions please?
That’s disappointing because it is a good stick vacuum cleaner. I bought it through Kogan. Just like you I would have dried it in the sun for a while. They have instruction manuals online. Maybe that can give some more information
There’s nothing mentioned about it in user manual only it mentions a strong warning to not put water. Feels like the unit has doomed.
I’m renting and can’t drill holes into a wall. Can it be charged without installing the docking station on a wall?
Hi Dotti. Yes you can. The charger can be plugged directly into the vacuum in the back of the handle. You don't need the docking station at all. It's just for convenience. Hope this helps.
Great, thanks a lot :)
Hello Dotti, I agree with R Wake’s answer. It looks great hanging on the wall and is convenient but not necessary. Enjoy this cordless vacuum cleaner. I am very happy with it. Ineke
