Dyson V6 Absolute Cordless Vacuum
Just when you thought Dyson couldn’t improve on their cordless vacuum, they invented the new V6 Absolute. This is definitely an improvement in their line of cordless vacuums that perform above and beyond the expectations of users.
The V6 Absolute is more powerful than their last vacuum and can run up to 20 minutes on a charge of the Li-ion battery. A Max mode allows users a little increase in the power when there is a more challenging task, however it isn’t necessary to use this mode most of the time as the suction is already powerful. When depressing the Max power mode button the battery will use a little more power.
The HEPA filter is important for allergy sufferers because it captures 99.97% of particles and holds them so as not to release them back into the air when air leaves the machine. If you suffer from allergies, sinus problems or asthma or simply want cleaner air, this filter will help. HEPA stands for “High-efficiency particulate air” and is the required by the government to remove 99.97% of particles as small as 0.3 microns. This filtration is a plus for anyone with medical issues, small children, or pets.
With the two different heads that come with the vacuum, the V6 Absolute is the only cordless you will need for both carpets and hard floors. The soft roller cleaning head as well as the direct-drive cleaning head are both included with this model. The actually direct-drive motor forces the brushes deeper into the carpet to capture more debris and dust.
The V6 Absolute includes several tools including a crevice tool to clean in corners and baseboards as well as combination tools for a variety of cleaning. The mini soft dusting brush is the optimum size for getting into keyboards or other areas without scratching the surface.
My favorite part of the Dyson cordless vacuums remains the same on the Absolute. As with the other Dyson cordless vacuums, the Absolute is lightweight and easy to use both when vacuuming the floor or reaching in higher places. Getting those cobwebs on the ceiling is a breeze as well as cleaning the tops of blinds or shutters. Cleaning the dust out of screens is easy with the Dyson because of the way it is weighted. While it won’t wash your windows, at least the screens will be clean and dust free. When was the last time you cleaned your screens? They are year-round dust and pollen collectors.
The convenient docking station also is easy to use. Simply attach it to the wall and plug in the vacuum. And emptying the vacuum is simple with just a push of a button. The vacuum itself is red and gray, giving it a sleek, modern look.
The Dyson V6 Absolute comes with a 2-year warranty.
If you are looking for a small, lightweight, cordless vacuum with super power to clean both carpets and hard floors, a HEPA filter for better breathing, plenty of tools to clean the entire house – or apartment – and easily converts from a floor cleaner to a handheld, then the V6 Absolute is worth the investment. With Dyson technology and all the bells and whistles, plus the additional benefit of the HEPA filter, this is the one cordless vacuum that does it all.
