In the field of cordless vacuum cleaners, there are different models, including advanced ones – more powerful, with an unusual design, a display, and a large number of attachments. Today on testing one of these – Jimmy h8 pro for 25 thousand rubles. I propose to figure out if the improvements are worth the surcharge.

Jimmy H8 pro: Whats in the box?
You expect an appropriate configuration from an advanced model, and our hero does not disappoint. Five different attachments, optional adapters, floor stand, battery charging dock – a complete set. To complete the picture, one brush is not enough, but more on that later.
Appearance and Ergonomics
The Jimmy H8 Pro’s design stands out from most cordless vacuums. It’s all about the unusual shape due to the lateral location of the container and smooth lines without a single-pointed transition. The graphite color with vibrant purple accents is a nod to Dyson, a true stylistic parallel.
The unusual layout made it possible to handle the top point of the vacuum cleaner and shift the center of gravity down. As a result, with a standard weight of one and a half kilograms, the vacuum cleaner feels very light and comfortable – the hand does not get tired at all.
A set of attachments and accessories
The main brush with a soft rotating roller is designed for hard floors such as laminate, parquet, or tile. She perfectly collects dust and erases streaks. The nozzle is mighty. The included vacuum cleaner automatically rushes forward when it rotates – additional wheels also facilitate this. The opposite of a soft roller is the same hard-bristled carpet roller. Unfortunately, it does not come with the Jimmy H8 Pro and is not available for purchase in the store.
The soft roller can be removed for subsequent washing in warm and, if necessary, soapy water. Before reinstalling, I advise you to completely dry the fabric without using a battery to avoid deformation of the pile.
The second smaller motorized brush is designed for cleaning upholstered furniture. The rotating roller with large bristles and rubber edges leaves no chance for stuck hair and dust. And the suction force relieves the stuffing of dust mites – integral companions of any furniture. An ordinary vacuum cleaner is unlikely to cope with such cleaning. The small brush roller is also removable.
We didn’t forget about auxiliary brushes for cleaning hard-to-reach places. With their help, I finally cleaned up all the dust between the wall and the closet. You cannot do without these brushes while cleaning the car: the space under the seats, all possible transitions, as well as the joints between the seats and backs. Each of them can be combined with a flexible hose and swivel angle – this gives an additional degree of freedom.
I want to point out a delicate brush with soft bristles. This is a good option for vacuuming curtains or collecting dust from an expensive table that should not be scratched. It is especially convenient to use in conjunction with a flexible hose, making it possible to hold the vacuum cleaner lower in relaxed hands.
Experience of use and autonomy
The main advantage of the Jimmy H8 Pro compared with the available models is the serious suction power of 25,000 Pa. This is the merit of the 500 W motor. The difference becomes apparent in difficult conditions when it is necessary to collect dust and larger particles or pull out all the excess from the upholstery of upholstered furniture. There are only three modes and an automatic program that regulates the power independently. In everyday use, it is worth using it for optimal energy consumption.
Garbage is collected in a 500 ml container using a cyclone filter that keeps foreign particles along the walls. A HEPA filter filters the outgoing air. There is no smell of dust during operation.
The second bonus of an expensive model is the ease of use. In particular, a small LED display shows the charge level, the selected mode, and the lamp for replacing the HEPA filter. Both buttons, power and mode change, are located next to each other under the thumb. It is unnecessary to constantly hold the button while the vacuum cleaner is running since it works like a switch.
The removable battery consists of 7 standard 18650 cells of 3000 mAh each. The battery snaps onto the body exactly under the handle and does not outweigh in either direction – ergonomics does not suffer. The company claims up to 70 minutes of battery life at minimum power.
A small docking station is provided for charging, which can constantly be on the table in standby mode. In total, it takes 5 hours to charge, after which the indicator turns green.
Caring for your Jimmy H8 Pro
Tidying up the vacuum cleaner can be divided into three steps. The simplest action, emptying the bin at the touch of a button, must be performed after cleaning. Next, the cyclone separator will need to be cleaned every few days. The third stage – replacing the paper HEPA filter – is performed every 3-6 months. All these are simple operations. You don’t even need to get your hands dirty.
The vacuum cleaner is supposed to be stored on a vertical stand. So you don’t need to fix anything on the wall. The heavy platform stands apart and is more than stable.
Recall after two weeks of use.
Before summing it up, here’s a quick digression into Jimmy’s history. The brand is not yet very well-known on the Russian market, and world history has been going on since 1994 in the person of the parent company KingClean. General specialization in household utensils, special emphasis is placed on vacuum cleaners of various formats. As a result, KingClean has its own production and R&D center, employs 700 engineers, and has a portfolio of more than 1,300 patents.
The comfort of using and maintaining the cordless vacuum cleaner is unquestionable, especially when compared to old-fashioned models. On the example of Jimmy H8 Pro, the second truth becomes obvious: the more expensive models cost the price difference, primarily due to the higher power, 25,000 Pa is an excellent value. Such a vacuum cleaner can be trusted with any cover, especially if you add a carpet roller to the kit. A screen, a docking station, a vertical stand – all these are additional conveniences inherent in a good thing.
- the most convenient wireless format;
- unusual form factor with a side container;
- high suction power;
- a large number of nozzles and adapters;
- informative display;
- the power button does not need to be held down during operation;
good vertical stand.
May not like:
