Constant clogging, difficult to empty,
I have a very hard time believing the reviews for this product are genuine. It is a cheap piece garbage.
Literally every single time I try to empty the canister, I need to stick my fingers in as far as possible to try to remove the dirt and debris. Often, I need to use the back end of a spoon or something to get them out. This is due to the ring inside the canister. Because the dirt is often trapped at this level, the vacuum clogs constantly while in use.
Suction power is miserable. I have to run it on full power mode to do my carpet, and eve...n then it is simply not clean. On the standard level the thing won't even pick up grains of rice. And on high of course the noise is like a banshee and the battery dies in minutes. When I use the thing, I literally keep the trigger down while I run to the bin and hold it over before releasing the power. This is because the tube will be full of stuff that will just instantly fall back to the floor, because it's not powerful enough to pull it all the way in. The last sub-$100 plug-in vacuum I had beats this hands down. I'm on this site now looking for a new one and signed up for an account just to write this review. Hopefully others will see and not make the same mistakes I did.
Efficient but has a high pitched banshee like wail. Perfect for a horror movie sound track.
The vacuum cleaner picked up dust well on tiles and floorboards and was easy to use. As mentioned the noise is the main problem. Ear muffs are a must when using.

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.

Owned for 1 year, vacuum not as powerful as hoped and part now broken off so no longer usable
I've owned this vacuum for just over a year and have used it as a supplement to my robot vacuum cleaner, on a variety of surfaces (hardwood, tile, low pile carpet) but mainly it's purpose has been for the stairs and dusting cornices and corners where dust settles and is hard to reach.
It replaced a Dyson barrel vacuum which I found cumbersome to lug around a 2 story home.
I found the suction on the Dreame V9 to be lacking for dust collection and the brush crevice tools bristles too soft, so they would bend a lot, making them not very effectiv...

Good for a year till it stopped working!
I'm one of the biggest Xiaomi supporter, I've got Watch, Lights, Cameras and I bought the Vacuum too thinking that it was another "well build and reasonably priced" product that made the brand great - big mistake!
At the start was good but after 6-8 months suction & battery life was getting worse and worse.
I didn't think much about it but one day stopped working completely.
Contacted the customer service and they told me that nothing could've been done because I bought it from Catch of the day so I had to contact them.
The store from catch of...

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.

Started off great
For the first month my vac was great I raved about it to workmates... but now for some reason if I use it and then take my finger off the trigger, most of what I vacuumed up falls back out the head like it never made it to the bin part. I’ve checked and there isn’t any blockages. If anyone know how to fix this please let me know!

Made vacuum cleaning very easy
I love the product. I had it for three months and I use it every day, it’s quick and quite.
It works perfectly on wood floor and not bad in carpet. Easy to clean, to charge and to swap attachment. It looks modern and cool. Love it!
I wish it had the option to leave it on without keeping pushing the button (like my old vax had), but that’s the only negative.

Battery timing is also good.....

Excellent buy at reasonable price
First time I ever used a cordless handheld vacuum cleaner. Very happy with this product in terms of quality and the color I got, red. It can clean well on timber and tiles flooring. The suction power is good too. It is not heavy and very convenient to use. Overall a happy customer.

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....

Was initially a bit worried going with a brand I hadn’t tried before, but have been pleasantly surprised!
We have really tough light grey carpet in our apartment to which dust and fluff sticks. To make matters worse, our old vacuum used to cause fluff piles when rolling over the carpet, often making it worse. The Dreame is extremely effective on the carpet on the highest setting, sucking up basically everything. It’s also perfect on tiles and hard floors, including on lower power settings.
It’s easy to empty and charge, and a real breeze to p...ush around the floor. It’s so light and powerful that it almost feels like it’s pulling you across your floor, instead of you pushing it! I only have two complaints which aren’t major enough to affect the rating. The battery isn’t amazing, which means less than 8 minutes on the highest mode which is necessary for my carpet will run the battery dry. Further, you need to constantly press the power button down to operate the suction. Understandably this is to avoid unnecessary usage and battery drain, but it’s also a bit tiresome. Overall very happy.

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.
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
