Dyson V11 Absolute

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

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.

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.

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.

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 

  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.

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.


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.

Cleaning Test Comparison: Dyson V11 Absolute Extra vs V11 Outsize

In advance, even though the Outsize pulls quite a bit more Airwatt (AW) out of the hat:

Both vacuums were absolutely top class in the cleaning test.

For the cleaning test, we spread different dirt (lentils, fine sand and porous oat flakes) on different floor types (long hair carpet, short pile carpet, laminate). Then we vacuumed it up again in automatic mode.

Both the Dyson V11 Absolute and the Dyson V11 Outsize sucked up almost everything we gave them.

Cleaning on hard floors in comparison

When cleaning hard floors, both cordless vacuums achieved very good results.

No matter what dirt... everything was sucked up.

Back and forth...

...Both took a little longer with the sand. The result was still great!

Which attachment works best on hard floors?

We were most efficient with the soft roller attachment. This is also much gentler on the floor and it simply picks up the dirt better. But also the torque drive left no dirt and is well suited for hard floors.

Cleaning on short carpet

Until the test of the Dyson V11 Absolute, there was no cordless vacuum cleaner that achieved 100% in the test on short carpet. With the test of the Outsize, there are now two devices that have achieved this.

In Boost mode, we were briefly afraid that the Outsize would suck up our carpet.

Two times 100%... Hats off?!

Cleaning on long pile carpet

When it comes to cleaning on high carpets, the Dysons are unrivaled. Both devices really get down to business thanks to strong suction power and a well-designed floor nozzle. In this way, they bring the dust of long-forgotten times to light.

Extra bonus for deep cleaning.

Cleaning in everyday life and conclusion

Everyday cleaning is much more pleasant with the Dysons from the V11 series.

In short, no dirt has turned up in our daily lives that the Dysons haven't managed, despite children and pets.

The purification in everyday life

The cleaning category here is a draw based on our comparison of the two vacuums....

Both win!

The design of the two cordless vacuums in comparison


Seen from a distance, both devices look exactly the same.

Both are in the usual futuristic Dyson design with metallic, pop colours.

Both come with the typical vertical arrangement of the motor unit and dirt bin. This design has been used by Dyson since the release of the Dyson V10. It offers several advantages.

Advantage: Here, for example, the very well functioning emptying function should be mentioned.

Differences in the size of the Dyson V11 Absolute vs V11 Outsize

The main difference between the two devices is already in the name.

The Dyson V11 Outsize is much larger than its "predecessor".

Model Dyson V11 Absolute Extra Dyson V11 Outsize
Total size as floor vacuum cleaner 128 cm (50.4 inches) 127 cm (50 inches)
Length motor unit 37 cm (14.6 inches) 45 cm (17.7 inches)
Brush width 24 cm (9.4 inches) 32 cm (12.6 inches)
Check Amazon* Offer* Offer*

The overall size has remained the same. 128 cm (50.4 inches) is a size that contributes to good manoeuvrability.

However, the motor unit of the Outsize is a good deal larger than that of the V11 Absolute.

Dyson V11 Absolute and Dyson V11 Outsize compared: Size

Dyson has shortened the suction tube so that the overall length does not increase significantly. This ensures that hardly any difference is noticeable when vacuuming the floor.

More interesting than the overall size is the size of the floor nozzle. The XXL torque drive is a whopping 25% larger than the normal torque drive (of the Dyson V11 Absolute). This allows you to vacuum large areas much faster.

The weight of the Dyson V11 Absolute and the Outsize in comparison

The Dysons are generally not among the lightest cordless vacuums in the UK.

The almost 500 grams (1.1 lbs) that the V11 Outsize has more of are therefore also clearly noticeable.

The Outsize on a scale

When vacuuming the floor, we do not experience the weight of either device as annoying. However, we can imagine that some people find it too heavy for long periods of vacuuming.

Differences and similarities in the display

There are no differences in the display, only similarities:

Both cordless vacuums come with a stylish LCD display.

The V11 Series Display

Of course, the display doesn't just look good...

...it also helps us to monitor the system of the battery vacuum and gives out important information:

  • It calculates the remaining term live
  • It shows the currently selected suction mode.
  • It gives error messages.
  • It gives useful tips on how to maintain the unit.

Your teat will be better protected and last longer.

Accessories Comparison: Dyson V11 Absolute Extra vs V11 Outsize

Accessories are very important when buying a cordless vacuum cleaner.

Often there are many variants of a model, but they only vary in terms of accessories and price.

In our comparison, we have the V11 Outsize vs the V11 Absolute Extra.

Basically, the accessories for these two are compatible. However, not everything is included in the scope of delivery for both devices.

In the following table, we have illustrated these differences in accessories.

In the right column, you will also find another version of the Dyson V11 Absolute. The Dyson V11 Absolute Extra and the Dyson V11 Absolute Extra Pro are identical. The only difference is the accessories included.

Before buying, you should be clear about which accessories are important and useful for you.

That's why we'll briefly introduce you to the individual gadgets below.

The accessories in detail

A difference in torque drive

The standard floor nozzle, called the torque drive, is the only accessory that is different on the Outsize than on the Absolute.

The torque drive XL of the Outsize is 25 % larger than that of the Absolute. Of course, this means you can clean large areas correspondingly faster.

Dyson V11 Outsize Torque-Drive nickel and Torque-Drive-XL side by side

The Suction Pipe

The suction tube of the cordless vacuum from Dyson is robust and comes in a chic metallic look.

Dyson V11 Outsize The suction tube

The Fluffy Attachment

or also called soft roller. This floor nozzle is equipped with soft rollers that enable it to clean all types of delicate hard floors.

If you mainly have to clean hard floors, make sure that this attachment is included in the delivery.

Dyson V11 Outsize Fluffy Attachment

The Joint Nozzle

The crevice nozzle is ideal for cleaning narrow spaces, such as between upholstery or under the seat of a car.

Dyson V111 Outsize The crevice nozzle

The Combination Nozzle

The bristles are soft, so you can also vacuum delicate objects or edges. The hard end is useful for getting a grip on coarse dirt.

Dyson V11 Outsize The combination nozzle

The Mini Electric Brush

This practical rotating brush for cleaning effectively removes dust and dirt from sofas, cars or mattresses.

Dyson V11 Outsize Mini Electric Brush

The Joint Attachment

The articulated attachment gives you extra reach, so it's great for cleaning high or hard-to-reach places.

Dyson V11 Outsize Articulated Attachment

The Practical Wall Mount

Thanks to the wall mount, you can place your cordless vacuum upright and save space on the wall and charge it at the same time.

Dyson V11 Outsize practical wall bracket

Wide Upholstery Nozzle

This brush is, as the name suggests, intended for cleaning upholstered furniture. If you have a mini electric brush, this brush is basically superfluous.

Dyson V11 Outsize Wide upholstery nozzle

The Flexible Hose

The flexible hose is useful for cleaning in tight spaces, such as under the seats of your car or in other hard-to-reach areas.

That's probably why it comes as standard with the Outsize, but not with the Absolute.

Dyson V11 Outsize The flexible hose

You don't want an Outsize but a flexible hose? No problem!

All accessories can be purchased in the Dyson UK onlineshop.

The Extra Soft Brush

This brush has very soft bristles and is ideal for dusting pictures or similar objects.

Dyson V11 Outsize The extra soft brush

The Extra Hard Brush

The hard brush is extremely stiff and good for removing dirt from a robust surface. It is not suitable for delicate surfaces.

Accessory Clip for the Suction Tube

A simple holder that is clamped to the suction pipe.

So you always have the right accessories with you.

Accessory clip for the suction tube

Spare Battery

The spare battery easily doubles your working time. While you are vacuuming, you can simply click the battery onto the wall mount and it charges. Of course, even without the motor unit.

The replacement battery is only included with the more expensive version of the V11 Absolute (Dyson V11 Absolute Extra Pro).

But don't panic, you can also buy this accessory online.

The Charging Dock

Dyson V11 The loading dock The charging dock is also only included with the Absolute Extra Pro.

It is basically a stand on which you can store your teat upright.

Your advantage: You can simply put it somewhere else if it bothers you at some point.

The classic wall mount, on the other hand, is permanently installed.

Only with a certain amount of effort can you mount them in a different place (drilling holes, etc.).

Cleaning Features: What helps with cleaning?

The cleaning performance of cordless vacuums results from the suction power and the coordination of the individual components.

What definitely helps the V11 Absolute and the Outsize to achieve very good cleaning results is, for example, the torque drive already presented.

What makes the Torque Drive so special?

The torque drive - whether large or small - is an ingenious invention.

It helps the cordless vacuum cleaner to adapt the suction power to the surface. This saves energy and you can vacuum for longer.

In addition, the brush inside naturally rotates automatically and transports the dirt into the suction tube at high speed.

Dyson V11 Outsize Torque Drive

The Torque Drive is suitable for any type of floor...

...very flexible in use!

The Fluffy attachment for hard floors

The Fluffy attachment is ideal for cleaning hard floors such as laminate, tiles, etc. due to its soft floor roller.

Here, the Fluffy attachment is even a little more efficient than the Torque Drive.

The Fluffy attachment for hard floors

Attention: The soft roller is not available in XL format. This means that it is the same size for the Absolute and the Outsize.

The suction levels

Both the Absolute and Outsize come with three suction levels. You can choose between:

  • Eco: A very battery-friendly suction level with the lowest suction power. This suction level is suitable for very light soiling, such as dust on books and pictures.
  • Auto: The vacuum adapts to the surface and you get the best out of the device. Sensational!
  • Boost: Super strong suction power for the rough stuff. Of course, this is at the expense of battery life...

Dyson V11 Outsize Three suction levels

Differences in the motor unit

The Outsize adds 35 Airwatt to the peak (Read more about Airwatt...) more power in the comparison.

How did Dyson UK manage that?

The Dyson vacuum cleaners work with the help of a cyclone technology in which the air that is sucked in is whirled up and starts to rotate. The G-forces generated cause the dirt to be thrown outwards and separated from the air (Read more...).

Long story short: The Dyson Outsize has 18 cyclones, which is 4 more than its little brother, the Absolute.

Dyson V11 Absolute Extra vs Dyson V11 Outsize: 2-in-1 Function in Check

The Dyson V11 Outsize and the Dyson V11 Absolute both have the great advantage of coming with a 2 in 1 function.

This means that both devices can be used as cordless vacuums to clean the floor. On the other hand, they can also be converted in a flash and used as a cordless hand vacuum.

Very practical!

To increase flexibility, all the accessories supplied fit both on the suction tube and directly on the motor unit.

Dyson V11 Outsize as a cordless hand vacuum
Dyson V11 Outsize

We regularly use the cordless hand vacuum variant to:

  • Vacuum furniture
  • Upholstery to clean
  • Vacuuming mattresses
  • Vacuuming out the car

The areas of application are almost limitless...perhaps you have something completely different in mind?

How heavy are the devices as cordless hand vacuums?

Comfortable vacuuming with a hand-held vacuum cleaner depends decisively on the weight.

We found the Dyson V11 Absolute, weighing around 2 kg (2.1 kg without attachment = ~4.6 lbs), very comfortable. The device is compact and easy to handle in hand vacuum mode.

It looked a bit different with the Outsize.

In our opinion, the additional 500 grams (1.1 lbs) (2.6 kg (5.7 lbs) in total) are quite noticeable.

When sucking on the ceiling, this can be strenuous for the arms over a longer period of time.

Dyson V11 Outsize Sucking on the ceiling

The device was also too bulky for cleaning in confined spaces, such as the footwell of the car.

Your advantage: That's probably why Dyson includes the practical flexible hose. You can use it to compensate for this deficit.

Dyson V11 Outsize Vacuuming with flexible hose

Conclusion on the hand vacuum mode

When comparing the handheld vacuum mode of Dyson V11 Absolute Extra vs Dyson V11 Outsize

the point clearly goes to the V11 Absolute.

It is simply better suited as a cordless hand vacuum because of its size and weight.

Nevertheless, the outsize is not to be despised here. Clever solutions, such as the flex hose or the joint attachment, can partially compensate for weight and size.



Commissioning is very simple.

For both devices, Dyson's credo of making the packaging as sustainable as possible applies.

In concrete terms, this means that they do without plastic here.

Dyson V11 Outsize Unboxing

A small instruction manual is included to help you. You can also scan the barcode in the lid to access the online tips.

However, the commissioning is actually self-explanatory:

After the first charging (once 4.5 hours), you are ready to go.

Simply select the attachments as required and start vacuuming.

The practical plug-in connections work very well! Nothing snags and everything fits as it should.

Power Button

This is where opinions differ. Many of our readers have already asked us why Dyson has no lockable power buttons.

The answer: Dyson says that this allows them to significantly increase the runtime of the vacuum cleaner. This is because power is only consumed when users are actually vacuuming.

Neither the V11 Absolute nor the Outsize have a lockable power button. So you have to press it to suck...

Dyson V11 Outsize The power button

We find that you get used to it very quickly and that it is not a hindrance.

However, this is a matter of taste and you must consider how important a lockable power button is to you.

Agility and Mobility

The manoeuvrability and agility is largely generated by the rollers on the underside of the floor nozzles. In addition, the joint between the nozzle and the suction tube is responsible for the Dysons being able to take tight turns.

The rollers of the floor nozzles and the joint

That works great with both devices. With the lighter and less bulky V11 Absolute, it's a little easier to whirl around the flat.

Behaviour under furniture (height of floor brush)

The Dysons are also great for vacuuming under furniture.

Your advantage: Because the motor is located at the top of the handle, the rest of the vacuum is nice and slim. A typical cordless vacuum...

The XL torque drive of the Outsize is about 7 cm high. So under all furniture that is higher, you can vacuum well with both devices.

The Volume: V11 Absolute vs Outsize

Our decibel scale showed approximately equal values for the two Dysons.

The volume in comparison

The cordless vacuum cannot be described as quiet. In boost mode, it gets about as loud as a washing machine. But the noise that is produced is not unpleasant.

You just notice that work is being done ?

The volume in comparison

Comparison of Battery Life and Charging Time

An important factor when buying a cordless vacuum cleaner is the runtime.

The battery vacuum cleaner should run at least long enough for you to clean your hut completely once.

The Battery Life

The running time depends mainly on two different factors:

  • How long do you vacuum at which level?
  • Which attachment is used for vacuuming?

Therefore, you can see approximate values in thefollowing table.

The running time in comparison

Suction Mode V11 Absolute V11 Outsize
Eco Approx. 70 minutes Approx. 60 minutes
Auto Approx. 55 minutes Approx. 45 minutes
Boost Approx. 8 minutes Approx. 11 minutes
Check Amazon* Offer* Offer*

The fact is that both devices have very good battery life.

Most important is the runtime in auto mode. At least in our everyday cleaning, this was the mode of choice most of the time.

The runtime in boost mode seems a little short here, but we never really needed it.

How long do you have to charge the V11?

The charging time for both devices is 4.5 hours.

Is it possible to change the battery?

Both the Dyson V11 Outsize and the Dyson V11 Absolute are equipped with the click-in function. This means that the battery can be removed at the touch of a button. If you have a spare battery, you can click it in and continue vacuuming.

The Click in function of the V11

Your advantage: The exchangeable battery function extends the runtime and makes ecological sense. You can simply replace a defective battery and don't have to send in the entire device or even throw it away.

Similarities and Differences in Maintenance

The same maintenance tasks apply to both units:

  • Emptying the dirt tank
  • Cleaning the dirt tank
  • Cleaning the HEPA filter
  • Cleaning the floor nozzles

Emptying the Dirt Tank

Emptying works great with both devices. Simply hold it over the waste bin and press the slider down...

.... The lid pops open and the dirt falls into the bin.

Emptying the Dyson V11

If something gets stuck there, the sliding mechanism ensures that the dirt is pushed out.

This works really well and the dirt lands pretty much where you aim it.

This mechanism makes the Dyson V11 (whether Absolute or Outsize) a good device for allergy sufferers.

Nevertheless, it is always best to empty the vacuum cleaner outside. Then you can be sure that the fine dust does not find its way back into the flat.

Your advantage: If you opt for the Outsize, you will have to empty the device less often. The larger dust box makes itself felt here.

Cleaning the Dirt Tank

Cleaning the dirt container is also very easy to handle.

Simply press the small button on the underside and the dust container can be removed.

Cleaning the dirt tank

You can then wash it out under running water or just wipe it out.

Cleaning the HEPA filter

The HEPA filter (HEPA filter) ensures that even the smallest particles are filtered out of the air.

To maintain the full performance of your machine, the filter should be washed out at regular intervals.

Just twist it off at the back and you can wash it out.

Filter cleaning for the V11

The filter is very durable and does not actually need to be changed. This saves money and protects the environment.

If you do need to change it, you can of course get a replacement online.

Cleaning the Floor Nozzle

It makes sense to check the roller of the floor nozzle at regular intervals. From time to time, hairs or threads wrap around the brush. This can affect the performance.

The roll can be removed with a simple operation of the lever on the side.

Removing the role

Now it is easy to remove the hair with a sharp knife.

Our Tip: Combine cordless vacuum and robot vacuum

It's better to have it vacuumed than to vacuum it yourself...

...that is the motto today.

Let the robot vacuum do the regular cleaning for you and spend more time with your family or your hobbies.

For the finer details and the thorough weekly cleaning of the home, for the upholstery and so on, you then pick up your Dyson cordless vacuum.

The Price Comparison: Dyson v11 Absolute Extra vs Dyson v11 Outsize

Battery vacuums are cheaper in the long runThe Dyson V11 Absolute in the "Extra" version is a good deal cheaper than the XL variant Outsize.

The Outsize is bigger and has more power, so the price difference here seems quite justified.

Both devices are of high quality and belong to the absolute top class among cordless vacuum cleaners.

From this perspective, the relatively high prices that Dyson charges here are also justified.

Quality has its price!

Modern cordless vacuums are cheaper in the long run

There are hardly any follow-up costs for the devices, as they do not require any disposable filters or vacuum bags.

In the long run, this is noticeable in the wallet. In addition, the environment thanks us, as less waste is produced here.

Conclusion: Comparison Dyson V11 Absolute Extra vs V11 Outsize

In the end, we can say that in our comparison of the Dyson V11 Absolute Extra vs V11 Outsize, two exceptionally good products sucked through our test area.

There is hardly any noticeable difference in the performance of the two devices.

However, the handling of the Dyson V11 Absolute is already more pleasant in hand vacuum mode. Here, the additional weight and size of the V11 Outsize are simply noticeable.

One really positive effect of the Outsize's large dirt bin is that you have to empty the machine much, much less often.

In addition, with the Torque-Drive-XL you can also deal with large areas much faster.

But who won the comparison?

We can definitely recommend both vacuums for purchase.

If you need to vacuum a lot of dust and dirt and have large areas, it's best to buy the Dyson V11 Outsize.

If you want a lighter and more manageable cordless vacuum cleaner, then the best choice is the Dyson V11 Absolute Extra. You can then save some of your hard-earned money.
