The Roborock Xiaowa E2 is the second generation of the Roborock Xiaowa Lite (C1).
You might be confused with naming. The Roborock Xiaowa E20 is also known as the Roborock Xiaowa E2 and E25. The Roborock Xiaowa E20 is a white robot vacuum, the Roborock Xiaowa E25 is a dark grey color option. They are absolutely identical, the features are the same, the only difference in colors.
The Roborock Xiaowa E2 is equipped with a water tank and mopping cloth. All you need to make the robot working is to insert the water container filled with water (and the mop cloth) and let the vacuum go. The cleaner mops for about 40-50 minutes until the tank gets dry. To continue cleaning fill the container with water again and press start. When the Xiaowa is now moving, the water stops dripping.
Inside the robot, there is a dual-gyroscope system that is a mix of EPSON and BOSCH, dual optical laser and LED motion tracking sensors that work together to capture the floor plan in high frequency.
When the robot is working, you can see how it builds a map inside the Mi Home app in real-time.
From the side, you can find a sweeper that works together with a cleaning brush to catch and agitate debris channeling it to the suction path where it gets sucked up inside the big dustbin.
The Xiaowa E2 supports continuous cleaning. Only the flagship models resume cleaning after being recharged
The 2,600 mAh battery lasts for about 100 minutes, when it gets low of power, the robot returns to the charging dock, juice up the battery to 80% and then go back to resume the cleaning cycle from where left off. If the Xiaowa E2 was moved somewhere manually or suspended, you could continue the cleaning cycle by placing it back to the original point, without repeated cleaning.
With the strong suction, carpet boost and big wheels, the Xiaowa E2 performs great on carpets that are not thicker than 20mm
The large wheels can cross obstacles up to 20 mm high which is surprising for such price. Only high-end robots can do that. It is suitable for transferring from bare floor to thicker carpet or stepping over thresholds.
Carpet identification is a bunch of sensors that recognize when the robot is on carpet flooring and automatically switch the cleaning mode to Max level.
The Roborock Xiaowa E2 shows excellent performance on carpet.
10 reasons of why is the Roborock Xiaowa E20 better than most of the budget robot vacuums?
- Recharge & Resume. High-end robots resume cleaning after recharging. Some of the budget robot vacuums support the resumption.
- Strong suction power. A few flagship models deliver more than 1,800 Pa of suction.
- The Xiaowa E20 mops and sweeps at the same time. Some cleaner either sweep or mop, most of the robot vacuums only sweep.
- The Xiaowa E20 is equipped with a dual-gyroscope system that refuses the cleaner to go over the same spots again.
- The E20 can identify carpet flooring. It boosts up suction to its maximum level when it recognizes carpets/rugs. Not many high-end models have this option. Carpet boost provides deeper cleaning.
- Only a few models can climb a 20 mm obstacle which makes them suitable for thicker carpets.
- Thanks to the three processors inside, the Xiaowa can be tracked in real-time, you can watch it building a map in the Mi Home app.
- Washable HEPA lasts longer than non-washable. It is safe for those who suffer from allergy and asthma.

Question 13: How to set up Wi-Fi?
Answer: Hi, please try the methods below: 1. Please go to the app's setting to change the region to your local region, not select China mainland. 2. If your phone is android, please go to the phone's setting to enable the location permission and enable bluetooth. 3. If your wifi password contains special characters like questions mark, colon, please change a password without them to have a try. 4. If it says it could not connect public wifi, it is probably because your wifi's encryption mode is WEP. Please log in your router's page to change the encryption mode to WPA or WPA2. 5. You could try to reset wifi by holding the recharge button and spot cleaning button for 5 seconds until you hear voice reset wifi. 6. Please notice the vacuum could not connect 5G HZ wifi. Notice: Please keep your eye on wifi indicator light under the cover of the device. It will flash with a higher frequency than normal status when it is trying to connect wifi and become solid when it is connected. Sometimes the app may show error after connecting steps finish, but the wifi indicator light becomes solid and the device is actually connected to wifi successfully. In this situation, please close the app and run it again to see if the device is on the list of app.

Answer: The Xiaowa E2 has a 150 ml container that is enough for around 30 minutes cleaning until you have to refill the container again. The mopping feature is good for everyday chores but would not be suitable for big messes and you would need to do manual mopping anyway but less often.
Question 21: Does it need Wi-Fi to work?
Answer: It can work without Wi-Fi.
Question 22: How often should I empty the dust container?
Answer: The robot has a relatively big dustbin and can be emptied once after 1 or 2 cleaning cycles. If you have pets it might get full faster, tho we recommend emptying the dust container after every cleaning.

Answer: It only has a HEPA filter that can be washed with water.
Question 26: Can S50 mop pads be used on the E2?
Answer: Yes. The mop pads of S5 are universal with E2.
Question 27: Can i use a clening solution for the mopping
Answer: The manufacturer does not allow using a cleaning solution for the mopping because it may block the filter. If you are okay to change the filter in some time, use the solution, the filters are cheap to change and the risk is not that big. Besides, the robot will perform better with it.
