Ergonomic and lightweight

A first look at this device reveals its design factor which is quite different from conventional vacuum cleaners. This device is fully compatible to be used as a full length vacuum cleaner with the proper attachment.

The ergonomic build features a gun-grip body with its center of gravity towards the hand. This makes the “less than 3 pound” device feel weightless and thus very easy to use. Not only the gripping but also the location of motor being very close to the hose and handle reduces the dimensions and makes it more compact.

Powerful and capable suction

The V6 is powered by digital motor by dyson, which according to the company delivers up to 3 times more power than conventional vacuum motors giving it a huge 110,000 RPM. The motor being higher powered at 350W, delivers power and hence capable of producing a high suction.

There are two modes in which the motor works. One is the regular mode which lasts about 20 minutes and a high power mode which lasts about 6 minutes on a single full charge.

2 tier cyclonic filtration

The 2 tier radial cyclonic filtration helps in separating dust, debris and even minute dust particles completely from the sucked in air, achieving a higher and refined cleaning ability. The re-engineered 15 parallel cyclones distributed over 2 tiers actually increases the airflow multiple times.

Thus, a centrifugal reaction takes place helping even the minute dust particles to settle down in the dirt bin. This not only is helpful in better removal of dust but also aids in reducing the noise.

Can be used for multiple cleaning activities

This compact device features a combined tool which can act two ways. It can transform into a brush for performing dusting activities and can also transform into a crevice attachment for cleaning hard to reach areas. The activity is not limited till here.

One can add an array of accessories with the nozzle that are available in the market at a very low additional costing. A motorized brush tool attachment can deliver a superb cleaning of pet hairs when needed.

Powerful re-engineered battery

The V6 handheld cordless vacuum runs with a re-engineered Ni Mn Co battery which can transmit about one and a half times more power than other battery types.

This battery has been custom designed to provide constant power to the motor which results in stable suction which does not decrease due time.

This battery helps the device deliver a total cleaning time of 20 minutes on a single charge in “standard mode” and 6 minutes of high powered suction in “boost” mode.
