If you hear the word “vacuum” and picture an unwieldy contraption as it clumsily navigates the room while tethered to a cord, you simply haven’t seen what Dyson’s been up to these days. Put simply, the brand has completely optimised the modern-day vacuum cleaner by way of superior technology, absolute power, and a cord-free design.
Continuing along those lines is the new Dyson V11, which very well might be the brand’s most formidable cord-free vacuum to date. Available in three versions, it comes equipped with a new digital V11 motor, a High Torque cleaner head with Dynamic Load Sensor (DLS), LCD display, a long-lasting battery, and three microprocessors, among other things. The result is premium agility along with 99.97% capture of particles as small as 0.3 microns. Indeed, when we say this baby is here to clean house, we aren’t kidding.
Dyson’s new V11 cord-free vacuum cleaner is 10 years, 315 engineers, and 32,500 parts in the making. Thanks to its three microprocessors—which are respectively located inside the DLS, the motor, and the battery—the appliance delivers monitoring performance up to 8,000 times per second. To put it another way: the V11 is really, really adept. For example, the DLS inside the High Torque cleaner head can communicate with the battery and motor and then automatically adjust suction when there’s a change in floor type or resistance.
Speaking of the High Torque cleaner, it’s Dyson’s most powerful cord-free appliance head to date. Features include stiff nylon bristles, anti-static carbon fibre filaments, and the integrated digital motor. Consequently, the brush bar drives deep into surfaces, captures dust from hard-to-reach places, and spins at up to 60 times per second. It also seals to the floor using a sealing bellow of elastic polyurethane.
Powering the cord-free vacuum is a 7-cell battery pack and new V11 motor. The battery brings up to 60 minutes of fade-free floor cleaning while the motor spins at up to 125,000rpm and delivers 20% more suction power than the Dyson Cyclone V10 vacuum cleaner. Also included are three diffusers, which collectively straighten airflow, tackle turbulence, boost suction, and even improve acoustics.
Bringing all these wondrous features to surface is the vacuum’s LCD display, which exhibits current performance levels, power modes, and remaining runtime. It also reminds you when you need to clean a filter or when the filter isn’t connected properly to begin with. As if all that weren’t enough, the screen will even inform you when there’s an obstruction and how to clear it.
In case it’s not already obvious, the Dyson V11 is a smooth and versatile operator. Driving that point home are three cleaning modes. Auto mode intelligently balances power and runtime while adapting to different floor types. Boost mode is ideal for taking on ground-in dirt and other obstacles. Eco mode cranks the cord-free runtime up to a full 60 minutes for those longer cleans on any type of floor.
Representing a 40% increase in size over its predecessor, the Dyson V11 is here to clean house in the most literal sense. Rounding out its bevy of charms is the ‘point and shoot’ system for emptying contents. Along similarly effortless lines, switching from stick mode to handheld mode is as easy as one click. There are three cord-free variants to choose from, with a starting price of AU$1,099. If you’re seeking an upgrade from the appliances of antiquity, Dyson’s latest is a no-brainer.
