The Dyson V10 cordless vacuum is very user-friendly. The device comes in a large cardboard box. We were also delighted that they didn’t use any plastic for the packaging of the individual elements.
Once you unpack the parts and give the vacuum battery a full charge (about 3.5 hours for the first time), you’re good to go. No cables, no bags, just attach the accessories you need and start vacuuming.
When you set it up and use it, you can tell that Dyson is all about ease of use.
You can quickly convert the Dyson V10 from a stick vacuum to a hand vacuum with just a few movements. You just have to press one of the plug-in system’s red buttons to remove or attach the accessories.
What’s the battery runtime of the Dyson V10 Cyclone Absolute?
Well, well, well.. the Dyson V10 and its battery life. For years, it was the bottleneck of cordless vacuum cleaners. There was always that anxious voice in our head: Is the battery runtime long enough to vacuum my entire flat? Not without reason do we ask that and similar questions.
That’s why Dyson UK focuses on the development of the battery and the runtime of each model.
By adding level 1 - which is relatively weak -, Dyson scores a long battery runtime of 50 minutes with its new cordless vacuum cleaner.
That's 10 minutes less than the manufacturer states, but it's still a considerable step in the right direction.
We consider it a significant enrichment for the cordless vacuum cleaner since the 14 air watts of level 1 are often sufficient.

In Max mode, the battery lasts only about 9 minutes. However, the suction power in this mode is so strong that you’ll only need it for really stubborn dirt.
In medium mode, the battery runtime of the Dyson V10 is about 30 minutes. This cleaning mode was our top choice during our review. We were able to vacuum 100 to 120 square metres at a stretch in medium mode.
The Dyson has an excellent performance with these battery runtimes.
How loud is the cordless vacuum cleaner?
What’s the volume of the Dyson? Is the volume of the suction power in Max mode unbearable?
We did a soundcheck with the Dyson V10 in dB.
In Max mode, we hit 80 dB. We can’t call that quiet, but it’s still negligible. The volume is acceptable, especially if you bear in mind what a powerful suction you get for it.

The new Dyson V10: Manoeuvrability and flexibility
The Dyson V10 is very flexible in movement. Due to the joint between the roller and the tube, you’ll almost get a right angle in curves. You can effortlessly move it through the room.
You can also lay it flat on the floor in an almost 180-degree angle. That makes it easier to vacuum under higher furniture such as beds or cupboards.
Unlike many other manufacturers, Dyson UK has built in the motor directly on the handle and not on the roller’s bottom. That also contributes to an easier vacuuming of the dust under the furniture.
