Cordless 2in1 vacuum cleaner
The Dyson V8 Absolute provides a lot of great features, such as powerful suction, a variety of cleaning attachments, and easy maneuverability due to its design and weight. However, it comes with a high price so if money is not a problem for you, then the Dyson V8 Absolute might be an excellent option.
The Dyson V8 Absolute offers various unique cleaning attachments that you can use in any floor type or on any object. It comes with a soft roller cleaner head, direct-drive cleaner head, mini motorized tool, combination tool, and rigid crevice tool.
The soft roller cleaner head is mostly seen in Absolute versions of Dyson cordless vacuums. It is an excellent cleaning nozzle for hard floors because it can easily pick up large debris compared to other cleaning nozzles. It is also quieter than other cleaning nozzles and won't scratch your floor. The direct-drive cleaner head has stiffer bristles so it works best in carpets since it can pick up deeply embedded fine dirt in your carpet. The mini motorized tool is suitable for picking up pet hair or fine dirt from the sofa or bed.
The wall-mounted dock allows you to store your Dyson V8 Absolute neatly. However, there isn't enough space for all six cleaning attachments so you still have to keep the other cleaning attachments somewhere other than the wall-mounted dock.
The Dyson V8 Absolute has outstanding suction power even on the normal suction mode, but if you are still not satisfied with it, the Dyson V8 Absolute gives you an option to use a higher suction power setting. There is a switch on top of the handle where you can easily adjust the suction power from normal to max mode. However, the max mode gives the Dyson V8 Absolute a shorter battery life, and you can only continuously use it for 7 minutes.
Dyson claimed that the Dyson V8 Absolute has an improved battery life compared to its predecessors. Still, if you compare it to cordless vacuums at this price range, the battery life might be disappointing. Moreover, it doesn't feature a detachable battery that gives you double battery life where you can replace the drained battery with a fully charged one, just like in the Tineco PURE ONE S12.
Like in any other Dyson cordless vacuums, you have to press the trigger switch to start then continuously hold it the entire time you are cleaning. The purpose of this is to optimize the battery life since it is already poor. However, some users don't feel comfortable continuously pressing the trigger switch. If you want a cordless vacuum with a lock button feature so that you can start and stop the vacuum with just one press, you might want to check the Dreame V11.
Overall, the Dyson V8 Absolute is a great cordless vacuum for any floor type and has outstanding suction power. It offers many excellent features and excellent cleaning performance so it justifies its high price.
The Dyson V8 Absolute is an advanced cordless vacuum cleaner with no-touch bin emptying, hassle-free operation, and an advanced filtration system. This design offers up to 40 minutes of cleaning on a full charge and quickly converts to a handheld when you want to clean surfaces and soft furnishings.
Like all Dyson models, the V8 Absolute is a carefully thought out and well-designed vacuum cleaner with a range of onboard technologies. This model offers a complete cleaning solution on soft and hard floors, with 15 Radial cyclones arranged across two tiers in an effort to increase airflow and capture fine dust particles. The Dyson V8 Absolute manages to provide a deep and powerful clean while remaining gentle on your floors.
This cordless vacuum cleaner is powered by the Dyson V8 digital motor, which is able to provide up to 40 minutes of operation on a full charge. While run-time can vary depending on the suction mode selected and state of the floor, this is among the longest run-times available for cordless models. Two independent power modes are available, with MAX mode providing up to 7 minutes of high power performance. The Dyson V8 Absolute is in Energy Efficiency Class A.
The Dyson V8 Absolute ships with a motor head, fluffy motor head, mini motorized tool, combination tool, and crevice tool. The hygienic dirt ejector allows you to eject dust from the bin in a single action, and the convenient docking station allows you to store, charge, and hold your attachments in a single location. The weight of this unit is just 2.61 kg and the dimensions are 12.4 x 22.4 x 25 cm. This cordless vacuum cleaner is available in nickel/yellow and has a noise level of 82 dB.
