    Best Vacuum 2022 🏆
    Dyson V15 Detect Absolute

    Dyson V15 Detect

    Dyson V15 Detect

    Dyson's new flagship convinces with excellent cleaning performance and innovative technology.

    The cordless and bagless 2-in-1 battery vacuum is super versatile in use. Whether it’s a hard floor or carpet, or even if you use it as a hand vacuum – NOTHING can stop this device.

    Highlights of the Dyson V15 Detect

    The Dyson V15 has a whopping 230 air watts, which is the most powerful suction we have ever seen.

    Thanks to over 60 minutes of runtime and three different power modes, the cordless vacuum achieves excellent cleaning results.

    It even has an LCD display so that you can monitor the suction process.

    And there’s more to it: The V15 constantly analyses the floor and the size and type of dirt.

    The vacuum cleaner automatically adjusts the suction mode according to its analysis and does the work for you.

    Dyson also upgraded the attachments. They’re now even more efficient in combating (pet) hair. 

    The new brush for mites/pet hair from Dyson

    Hair can’t wrap itself around the brushes anymore, thus preventing blockages.

    The revised Fluffy attachment for hard floors also has a green laser now. With this, you can see even fine dust particles and vacuum them directly.

    Test Winner 2020 🏆
    Dyson V11 Absolute Extra

    Dyson Dyson V11 Absolute

    Dyson Dyson V11 Absolute

    It’s our winner. It impresses with its strong suction power and innovative features.

    The Dyson v11 Absolute Extra is a premium cordless vacuum. 

    Dyson brought the suction performance of its V-series to the next level with the V11. On top of that, they also equipped it with innovative technology, a practical display and an exchangeable battery.

    Dyson V11 Absolute Extra - Best Vacuum in 2020

    The latest model from Dyson is also the best. Dyson UK continuously improves its devices, and the most recent model from 2020 has a surprise in stock for us. 

    Now you can click out the battery of the device and put in a charged one. You can double up the runtime with a few simple steps.

    Tops of the Dyson V11 

    Battery Life 

    The battery life is about 60 minutes, which is the best runtime among Dyson's cordless vacuums. It should be more than enough for most households. 

    You can even extend or double the runtime thanks to the click system. 

    New and Smart 

    Dyson equipped the V11 with a practical LCD screen. The display helps to monitor the device and shows useful information.

    The new LCD display of the Dyson V11

    Intelligent Adjustment of Suction Power

    The new Dyson V11 recognises the surface and adjusts the suction power accordingly. That improves the cleaning performance and prolongs the battery life, as it saves battery power. 

    Exceptional Suction Power 

    The V11 brought the most powerful suction to the table of all the devices that we tested. The suction power was so strong that we removed more dirt from the carpet than we had spread. 

    The suction power of the 2020 model is even at 220 AW in boost mode.

    You can read the full Dyson V11 Absolute review here. 

    Which Dyson V11 from 2020 is the best? 

    There are currently 3 variants of Dyson V11 from 2020 on the market: 

    • Dyson V11 Extra 
    • Dyson V11 Extra Pro and
    • Dyson V11 Extra + 
    • Dyson V11 Outsize 

    The difference between the first three is only in the delivery scope. 

    Attention: Please always compare the current prices, as Dyson often changes the offers. 

    The Dyson V11 Outsize 

    However, the Outsize has a couple of innovations in stock: 

    As the name suggests, it has a different size. The dirt container has a capacity of 1.2 l, which is almost 500 ml larger than before. 

    The floor brush is also 25 % wider. 

    Thanks to these features, you’ll be done much faster if you clean with the Outsize ☺ It’s also particularly suitable for larger areas.

    Which Dyson V11 is your best choice? 

    We recommend the Dyson V11 Absolute (2020) 

    1. For all those who have to vacuum a lot of hard floors because it includes the soft floor nozzle. That cleaner head does a great job when cleaning hard floors.
    2. For all those who have many different floor types because the Absolute Extra’s Torque-Drive floor nozzle of the V11 comes in very handy here. 

    Only the Extra Pro has even more features, like the docking station for storage. But YOU have to dig a little deeper into your pocket for that.

    Advantages

    New automatic floor roller

    New LED display

    Over one-hour battery power

    Very powerful suction

    Much quieter

    Battery is replaceable

    Disadvantages

    Dyson V11 Outsize main

    Dyson V11 Outsize

    Dyson V11 Outsize

    Powerful suction now even bigger... Larger dirt bin and wider floor brush.

    The Dyson V11 Outsize is an outstanding cordless hoover.

    Designed specifically for large households and large areas, it comes with a larger dirt bin, a bigger floor nozzle and even more power.

    Highlights of the Dyson V11 Outsize

    The dirt bin

    The Dyson V11 Outsize has an extra large dirt bin.

    It has a capacity of 1.2 litres. That's a record!

    It means you have to empty your cordless hoover much less often.

    The XL-Torque Drive

    With the Outsize's 25% larger standard brush, you can clean surfaces faster.

    You have more time for the really nice things in life.

    More power

    Even more power: 220 airwatts of power in boost mode. No one has ever done that before.

    When vacuuming, you notice the power and the cleaning really goes deep.

    Conclusion

    The size of the Outsize makes it the heaviest of its kind. For some people, the 3.6 kg device might be too heavy in the long run. Here, it's your personal feeling that decides.

    Dyson V10 Cyclone Absolute

    Dyson V10 Cyclone Absolute

    Dyson V10 Cyclone Absolute

    The test winner of 2018 has powerful suction and an innovative design

    This cordless vacuum plays in the top league. Its cleaning performance leaves nothing to be desired, and the innovative design is very user-friendly.

    Dyson V10 Cyclone Absolute - Test Winner 2018

    The Dyson V10 Absolute caught us off-guard with its entirely new design when it came out in 2018

    The new arrangement of the engine and dirt tank has improved performance significantly.

    The Dyson V10’s Highlights 

    Excellent Cleaning Performance 

    The Dyson V10 came out with flying colours in our cleaning tests. No matter what dirt or on which floor type, the Dyson V10 left the floor spotless.

    The Dyson V10 vacuuming the carpet

    The cordless stick vacuum scored so well thanks to its powerful suction. According to the manufacturer, the V10 has 150 AW. You see that when you vacuum. That’s why the V10 stole the show from all other cordless vacuums in 2018. 

    Emptying the Dirt Container 

    Emptying the Dyson V10

    The new emptying function is also a considerable advantage. 

    You just have to push the slider forward, and the dirt falls directly into the dustbin. 

    Advantage: It’s very suitable for allergy sufferers, but it’s also great for everyone else. Now the annoying dust won’t find its way back into the flat. 

    Flexibility 

    It’s super easy to convert it from a stick vacuum to a handheld vacuum. The vast amount of accessories also increases the versatility of the V10 immensely. 

    Long Runtime 

    The battery life of the Dyson V10 is excellent and lasts for up to 60 minutes. That’s sufficient for cleaning most flats and houses. After that, it takes about 4.5 hours to charge the battery fully. 

    3 Different Power Settings

    It’s also got an upgrade from two to three suction modes. This way, you can always choose a suitable power mode for the dirty challenge that lays in front of you. 

    The button for the power settings of the Dyson V10

    You can switch to turbo mode if you have to deal with stubborn dirt. If it’s only light dirt, the minimum level will be sufficient. 

    The medium level works great for most everyday situations. 

    The extra mode improves cleaning performance and battery life. 

    There’s always room for improvement 

    After the Dyson V11 came onto the market, the price of the V10 has also dropped immensely. The most significant disadvantage of the cordless vacuum cleaner has become insignificant. 

    Which variant is the best deal? 

    There are three variants of the V10: 

    • Absolute, 
    • Motorhead, 
    • Animal. 

    The manufacturer offers only the Absolute model at the moment, which is the best option anyway if you ask us. Its features are simply the best. 

    Read more about that in our detailed Dyson V10 Absolute review

    We recommend the Dyson V10 for those who want an excellent cleaning performance but don’t need the latest technology (display, automatic adjustment of suction power, etc.). 

    This naturally affects the price of the V10. It’s much cheaper than the latest models.

    Dyson Omni-glide main article

    Dyson Omni-glide

    Dyson Omni-glide

    The Omni-glide was specially developed for cleaning hard floors. It’s very efficient and mobile.

    It’s a super light and compact 2-in-1 device, meaning that you can use it both as a cordless handheld vacuum and also as a cordless stick vacuum.

    The highlights

    The Dyson Omni-glide is a super lightweight, cordless, bagless vacuum for cleaning hard floors.

    Hard floors are indeed its specialty. It achieves excellent cleaning results here.

    The innovative design leads to excellent maneuverability. 

    The device is very light, and you can vacuum forwards and backwards thanks to the 360-degree floor nozzle.

    But a coin always has two sides: To be such a lightweight, it has to compensate with shorter battery life and a smaller dirt container.

    Dyson V8 Absolute

    Dyson V8 Absolute

    Dyson V8 Absolute

    The Dyson V8 is a premium cordless vacuum that set new benchmarks in the past.

    High quality has always been Dyson’s trademark. The V8 was a real gamechanger when it first came out. Now you won’t even have to dig too deep into your pocket to make it your own.

    Strong cleaning performance and good for your wallet - the Dyson V8

    The Dyson V8 was Dyson's top model for years and impressed even then with excellent cleaning performance. 

    The appearance of the Dyson V8

    Nowadays, the device’s price is almost unbeatable, considering what an excellent performance it brings to the table. 

    The Advantages of the Dyson V8 

    Bright and shiny at the end 

    Like all Dyson devices in the UK, the cleaning performance leaves nothing to be desired. The Dyson V8 has an impressive 120 AW. That’s a superb value - even for today’s standards. 

    In our cleaning tests, it hardly reached its limits.

    The cleaning test on short carpet

    Versatile? - Definitely 

    The V8 is also very versatile in use. It works great for cleaning your flat, furniture and also to vacuum the car. 

    Power Modes 

    You can step up your game for coarse dirt and save battery power when removing everyday dirt thanks to its two suction levels. 

    Are there any disadvantages? 

    Old but Powerful 

    It’s an outdated model that works very well - but not as good as its successors. 

    Time Matters 

    The battery life is relatively short. 

    Attention Allergy Sufferers 

    Emptying the dirt container is a little more complicated than with the successor models. You can’t hit the bucket with that much precision. You have to be more careful so that the dust won’t sneak back into the flat. 

    Recommendation 

    The power is decent, and the cleaning performance is good. 

    We recommend the unit for those who have a small budget, in smaller flats. 

    Dyson V7 Motorhead

    Dyson V7 Motorhead

    Dyson V7 Motorhead

    The Dyson V7 is a discontinued model but still good in use.

    The Dyson V7: Old but gold. We’ve been using it in our flat for several years now, and it fulfils its tasks reliably.

    The Dyson V7 - What a nice price!

    The Dyson V7 as the market leader for a long time, thanks to its good performance and long battery life. It doesn't come close to its successors these days, but we can turn a blind eye on that if we consider the price...

    The Dyson V7

    The Highlights of the Dyson V7 

    The Price 

    The best thing is the price. It’s been on the market for so many years, and now the price is at an all-time low. 

    Unfortunately, it’s hard to get your hands on this model because the manufacturer has stopped the production. 

    But you can still buy the remaining stocks on Amazon in the UK for peanuts. 

    Cleaning Performance 

    The cleaning performance is decent and still much better than with well-known cheap models. You’ll get a taste of Dyson's quality standards here. 

    Versatile 

    It’s got lots of accessories, and you can convert it into a handheld vacuum. 

    Dyson V7 Accessories

    Where’s room for improvement? 

    How long does it last? 

    The runtime of the newer models is much longer than that of the Dyson V7. It lasts about 30 minutes in normal mode. 

    Cleaning performance 

    The Dyson V7 had difficulties with coarse dirt and hard floors in our tests. 

    Dyson V7 - Is it an exhibition piece or still worth buying? 

    We recommend the Dyson V7 cordless vacuum as a second device. It’s a great addition to a robot hoover (here you can find the best vacuum robots review)  or to a corded vacuum. 

    It works well when you want to remove a little dirt or if you want to clean the car quickly. It doesn’t have any problems with light dirt such as dust either. 

    Take a look at our reviews of the latest robot vacuums.

    What are the advantages of Dyson cordless vacuums?

    QUALITY is its trademark

    Dyson's cordless vacuum cleaners are all premium models and are of high quality. You can usually use your device for a long time.

    Chic and Futuristic

    Dyson cordless vacuums are known for their futuristic design.

    It’s a striking combination of a chic metallic look of the suction tube, glossy colours and a design that looks like it’s from outer space.

    Sure...

    ...Appearance is a matter of taste. If you like it, you can count the Dyson as decoration in your home.

    The 2-in-1 Function: from a cordless stick vacuum to handheld vacuum

    The versatility of Dyson vacuums is excellent.

    You can turn your Dyson stick vacuum into a handheld cordless vacuum in no time.

    You can attach any accessories to the motor unit in just a few steps, thanks to the click system.

    Conversion from a cordless floor vacuum to a handheld vacuum

    Dyson cordless hand vacuum for the car

    We also tested the Dyson V11 in the car.

    Vacuuming in the car

    It’s obviously convenient that you don’t have to struggle with cables anymore. You can simply convert your device into a hand vacuum and carry it to the car.

    The crevice tool or the mini electric brush works very well when cleaning the car. You’ll get it done in no time.

    Your advantage: You can even save some money here because you no longer have to pay for the vacuum at the car wash ?.

    User-Friendliness

    Dyson’s put a focus on User-friendliness and ease of use. You notice this immediately when using it for the first time.

    Commissioning is very easy and self-explanatory. Once you’ve unpacked the device, you just have to plug in the attachment you want to use, and off you go.

    Display

    The newer devices also have a display. The display makes the handling even easier, as it shows a lot of useful information.

    Dyson V11 display

    It shows the remaining runtime, and also maintenance tips and so on.

    Maintenance

    The maintenance of Dyson cordless vacuums is also very user-friendly and straightforward.

    It consists of these tasks:

    • Cleaning the appliance
    • Emptying the dirt/dust container
    • Maintenance of the filter
    • Maintenance of the battery

    Sustainability

    Sustainability is of great importance to the company.

    You’ll definitely notice that once you’re using a Dyson device.

    Firstly, the device has plastic-free packaging. Everything is safely packed in recycled cardboard boxes.

    Dyson's plastic-free packaging

    The (long-lasting) HEPA filters, bagless dust containers and replaceable batteries also produce less waste...good for you...good for the environment.

    How much does a Dyson cordless vacuum cost?

    Dyson cordless vacuums are available in the medium and upper price segments.

    The middle price segment starts at about 200 pounds. But you can only find the oldest models in this segment.

    Nevertheless: It’s worthwhile buying Dyson quality at a low price, too.

    The more recent models are in the upper price segment, which starts at about 400 pounds.

    But beware: You shouldn’t save at the wrong end. If you want the best Dyson devices, you have to dig a little deeper into your pocket.

    And for what it’s worth: even though Dyson cordless vacuum cleaners have the best test results so far, they are still not the most expensive ones.

    Another plus is that you have no follow-up costs in the long run with modern cordless vacuums (apart from electricity).

    You won’t have to buy filters or bags anymore, as you would have to for corded vacuums, which is better for your wallet.

    The Customer Service in the UK

    We have to give Dyson's customer support in the UK some credit, too. You can reach out to the customer support staff via chat or phone, even via WhatsApp. They’re always happy to help with any problems.

    What to consider when buying a Dyson cordless vacuum

    You’ve already made up your mind and want to buy a Dyson device?

    Good. All you have to do now is choose a suitable device.

    From here, it’s child’s play. We’ll tell you which criteria you should consider when buying.

    • Cleaning performance
    • Battery power
    • Accessories
    • Dirt container
    • Weight
    • Volume
    • Budget

    Cleaning Performance

    Cleaning performance depends on many factors. Looking for the air watts only won’t do the job. Many factors lead to good or lousy cleaning performance.

    The Dyson cordless vacuum cleaners always have the best suction power (highest air watts values) of all the devices tested.

    But there are also other cleaning features, such the automatic floor detection, that contribute to a perfect cleaning result.

    The best way to find out is to take a look at our reviews. We’ve put all devices through the wringer.

    We spread different dirt on several floor types and checked how each vacuum coped with our dirty challenges.

    The cleaning result of the Dyson V11 on short carpet
    Cleaning result of the Dyson V11 on short carpets

    Battery Performance: What’s the runtime of Dyson vacuums?

    The performance differs from device to device, but on average, they have powerful batteries. Battery runtimes range from 30 minutes for the older devices to about an hour for the latest devices.

    The key question is: How big is the flat/house?

    Battery power is crucial because it's very frustrating when your vacuum doesn’t even last for cleaning the entire flat in one go.

    We’d recommend vacuuming your home and track the time. You can check in our reviews how long each Dyson device lasts.

    Accessories

    The accessories determine the versatility of the cordless vacuum cleaner.

    The accessories of the Dyson V10 Absolute
    The accessories of the Dyson V10 Absolute

    Dyson often has so many different models, which can be quite confusing. But most of them only differ in the delivery scope. So take a closer look and think about what you need to save some money.

    The Dyson developers aren’t afraid to break new ground and develop innovative accessories all the time.

    The Mini Electric Brush

    This cleaner head is an example of that: The mini electric brush is particularly suitable for removing pet hair from upholstery.

    The Mini Electric Brush
    The Mini Electric Brush
    Extra tip: It’s usually much more expensive to buy accessories afterwards. Therefore, you should take your time when choosing a model and consider what you need.

    The Crevice Tool

    This cleaning head is another must-have accessory that comes as standard.

    You can use it to remove crumbs between the upholstery.

    The crevice nozzle of the Dyson V11

    The practical wall bracket and charging station

    The wall bracket is also trendy. It comes with almost every Dyson vacuum.

    You can mount the Dyson cordless vacuum cleaner on the wall. It’s very convenient because it takes up less space, and you can even charge the device simultaneously.

    The wall bracket
    Practical Wall Mount

    If you don't want to mount it on the wall, you can also buy an extra docking station. It also functions as a charging station, and you can store the device upright.

    The Dirt Container - the bigger, the better

    The size of the dirt container determines how often you need to empty your Dyson.

    But the motto "the bigger, the better" doesn’t apply here. The cordless vacuum cleaner’s got to be comfortable to hold and can’t be too heavy.

    The size of the V11 (0.76 l) proved to be very good.

    The new Dyson Outsize is designed for larger households. The dust container has an extensive capacity of 1.2 litres, but it’s not that comfortable to hold anymore after a more extended period.

    Weight of the Cordless Vacuums

    Weight can also play a decisive role.

    The weight is essential if you want to use the device as a cordless hand vacuum cleaner often.

    In this case, you have to make sure that it’s not too heavy.

    But otherwise, if you mainly use the device to vacuum the floor, weight isn’t an important criterion. The weight will be well-distributed since the cordless vacuum cleaner rests on the floor.

    How Loud is a Dyson Vacuum?

    Dyson cordless vacuums are relatively quiet among the cordless vacuums. Of course, it’s not quiet.

    You can't make an omelette without breaking eggs, right?

    We measured their volumes between 60 and 80 dB. The volume is quite acceptable in medium mode. It can get a little noisy in boost mode, though.

    Our volume scale shows with which volumes you can compare the Dyson devices

    Plan your Budget

    Especially when you’re going for a Dyson device, it’s essential to set the budget in advance. The new devices are always the most expensive, and if you want to have the latest technology, it’ll cost you 600 to 700 pounds.

    If you can do without the most modern features, you can get a very good device for around 400 pounds. Here you can find our current price-performance winner, the Dyson V10 Absolute.

    If you need a device that works well but is less powerful, you can get an old Dyson model for around 200 pounds.

    Which Dyson is the best against pet hair?

    Basically, all Dyson cordless vacuums are well suited for removing pet hair from the floor and upholstery due to their strong suction power. (We reviewed the best cordless vacuum cleaners for pet hair)

    All in all, the suction power gets stronger from generation to generation. It is therefore not surprising that we recommend the V11 Absolute at this point, as it has the strongest suction power.

    With the older models (V10, V8, etc.), Dyson always brought out an extra model with the addition Animal.

    The device had actually not differed from the Absolute, however, the Animal version still comes with an extra brush, which is particularly suitable for cleaning pet hair from upholstery.

    The mini electric brush of the Dyson cordless vacuum cleaner is particularly suitable for removing pet hair from upholstery

    Your advantage: This brush is also included in the scope of delivery of the V11 Absolute.

    Which Dyson is the best for hard floors or laminate?

    All Dyson cordless vacuums can be used flexibly on any type of surface (indoors). This is one of the great advantages of Dyson devices.

    However, if you mainly have hard floors, it definitely makes sense to make sure that the "soft roller" cleaning brush is included when buying your vacuum. This is particularly suitable for cleaning hard floors.

    Which Dyson is the best cordless vacuum for carpets?

    Wondering if Dyson cordless vacuums are suitable for cleaning your carpets?

    The answer is simple:

    Dyson cordless vacuums are great for cleaning your carpets.

    Carpets are generally more challenging for hoovers. The following applies:

    The longer the "hair" of the carpet, the more difficult it is to clean. Of course...

    ...because the longer the hairs, the more dirt can get caught in them and also the dirt particles get deep into the carpet and are difficult to get out of there.

    Attention: Many cordless vacuum cleaners fail in this task because they are simply not strong enough.

    Not so the hoovers from Dyson. Because of their enormous suction power, they get the dirt from deep inside. Experts refer to this as deep cleaning.

    This fact was confirmed in our tests.

    Even from our super long living room carpet, a whole dirt bin full of dust could be sucked out. Even though we had previously cleaned it with our old hoover.

    So which Dyson is the best for cleaning carpets?

    Here's the obvious one:

    The Dyson V11 from the current vintage is the best for the job. That's simply because it also has the most power.

    What is special about Dyson cordless vacuums?

    James Dyson launched the first bagless vacuum in 1983 in the UK.

    That was a real revolution and the product hit like a bomb.

    But Dyson has not only perfected bagless vacuuming. The specially developed dual-cyclone technology ensures a special kind of cleaning.

    In short, the cyclones stir up the air and throw out the dirt particles. What remains is clean air. While the dirt ends up in the dust bin.

    Meanwhile, Dyson UK also uses its technology in other devices. We have already tested the best air purifiers

    How do you clean and maintain the Dyson cordless vacuum?

    You should service and clean your Dyson regularly.

    Cleaning the Dyson focuses on a few parts and is done quickly:

    • Dust container
    • Filter
    • Battery
    • Floor nozzle

    Cleaning the appliance

    Here you should regularly clean the floor nozzle from hair and threads and also clean the dust container.

    Cleaning the brush

    Cleaning the dust container

    Your advantage: With Dyson cordless vacuums, the dirt bin can be removed and washed out at the touch of a button.

    No bags, No problems

    Emptying the Dyson
    The innovative "emptying system"

    Emptying the dirt container/dust bin is a real advantage, especially with the newer models. A sliding function allows the dirt to be transported from the dust container into the dustbin with pinpoint accuracy.

    Advantage for allergy sufferers: With the emptying function, allergy sufferers in particular get their money's worth, as the dust does not get back into the home.

    Maintenance of the HEPA Filter

    The HEPA filters from Dyson are so-called long-life filters.

    Change or clean the filter

    So, as the name suggests, these are long-life filters. They only need to be changed in rare cases. Usually, regular tapping or washing out is enough.

    Please be sure to follow the manufacturer's instructions. Not every filter can be washed.

    The HEPA filter is an important part of the Dyson vacuum. The HEPA filter filters even the smallest particles out of the dirty air. This prevents them from getting back into the room air.

    This is also good for allergy sufferers.

    But pet owners get their money's worth here. Because when even the smallest particles are removed by the vacuum, this also helps to neutralise odours.

    The Maintenance of the Battery

    The batteries of Dyson vacuums have always been replaceable.

    With the earlier generations, you still had to unscrew the units, but it was still no big deal.

    With the latest devices, the battery can be replaced quickly and easily thanks to the click-in function.

    Battery change with click-in function

    Your advantage: The click-in function simply doubles the mileage of your device today.

    More on the Topic

    • Which Dyson is the strongest?


      Dyson UK has continuously developed its motors and features and managed to constantly improve the suction power. That's why the latest model, the Dyson V11, is the most powerful. 

      So the question is rather, what strength do you need? 

      To answer this question, please read the analysis of the different models in this report above.

    • I have sucked in water with my Dyson, what do I have to do now?


      It depends on the quantity! 

      A little water is not bad. 

      If you have vacuumed through a puddle, then you should disassemble the unit (as described above) and dry it. Basically, the Dyson is not designed for moisture.

       

    • What can I do if the Dyson cordless vacuum cleaner always goes out?


      Often the problem is easy to fix. 

      You can first check whether the battery is charged and whether the charger is working properly. If the battery is empty, the motor howls briefly and releases the rest of the energy, then it is sense. 

      Another reason we know for a battery-powered vacuum cleaner going out is that hair or threads etc. have become wrapped around the brush. Then the brush can block and the battery vacuum cleaner switches off again directly.

    • How can I clean the HEPA filter of a Dyson cordless vacuum?


      Cleaning the Hepa filter is very easy. Depending on the appliance, you can simply remove and tap it out and wash it at regular intervals.

      Removing the filter is simple

      Attention: After washing, the filter should dry for at least 24 hours before you use it again.
