The difference between Mi Robot Vacuum-Mop 2 Pro and 2 Lite

Cost-effective Xiaomi sweeping robots are very popular all around the world. They have a wide variety of vacuum robots but their names are very similar. Mi Robot Vacuum-Mop 2 Pro and 2 Lite are easy to be confused. Many consumers think they are the same machine at first glance, but in fact they are two completely different vacuum cleaners. We can treat them as one professional and one simplified version.

Currently, the retail price of 2 pro on Amazon is $499.99, while the retail price of 2 Lite is $367.40. Compare the difference between the two robot vacs and see if the extra $132.59 is worth buying the Mi Robot Vacuum-Mop 2 pro.

The navigation system is different between the Mi Robot Vacuum-Mop 2 Pro and 2 Lite, We can directly notice the difference in the navigation system: the 2 Pro uses a LDS laser navigation system. But the 2 lite uses Visual Navigation System which have a wide-angle camera to capture the home layout and environment, flexible to cope with complex environments. Xiaomi official claims Compared with the domestic version of the Mi Robot Vacuum-Mop Essential (also named Xiaomi G1), it is cleaner and more efficient.

The 2 pro’s multi-layer mapping function is also a main Marketing Bullet Point. According to the official introduction, it can map five floors, this means that you save the map on each floor, and then place the sweeping robot at any position on a certain floor, it will recognize its location and continue to clean. From this perspective, this function is absolutely worth it. The inexpensive Lite version does not advertise this feature, and we suspect it may not be as powerful as the Pro version.

In terms of suction, the suction of 2 Pro is 3000Pa (2 lite suction is 2200Pa), if the breadcrumb falls to the ground, this suction can suck it away in an instant. So in terms of suction power, the Pro version is also a bit more powerful.

Finally we come to the mopping function, the 2 Pro is also equipped with a mopping system that uses 10000 vibrations per minute for powerful cleaning. The whole device vibrates when dragging the floor, which can easily remove stubborn stains such as coffee and soy sauce.

Both machines support mobile app control. They can be controlled by the Xiaomi Mijia app. This means that even if you are not at home but when you need to clean your house, the APP makes an appointment to clean and manage it remotely at any time.


Both are excellent sweeping robots, which can keep the floor clean. The key factors that need to be considered are that 2 Pro has a more effective mop, half more battery life and multi-layer mapping function. If you have extra dollars when making a decision, it is very worthwhile to choose 2 pro.
