So my several year old 1st Gen Xiaomi Vac has finally started having issues, and its battery is pretty much dead (barely does a room or 2 and just stops dead without even getting back to the dock to recharge)
- A new genuine battery looks to be about $150 (which seems excessive considering the price of a completely new entire vac)
- A new generic battery looks to be about $60-70 (but likely a month or 2 wait)
- A completely new 1st gen looks to be about ~$320
Has anyone with a 1st Gen Xiaomi robo vac ever upgraded to one of the newer/better models and seen a significant improvement?
We have a tiled area, so mopping would be 'beneficial' but unsure how well it actually performs on the better models (and there are so many models, so hard to identify the differences/benefits of more expensive models)
So, anyone want to weigh in and help me decide
Much appreciated for any advice.
