Battery only lasts 5 minutes

published

Battery only lasts 5 minutes!! Feels like it’s going to break in your hand while using it. After 6 months the battery failed and the spinning attachment broke so Dyson sent me a new replacement battery but same problem only last 5 minutes. It takes 2 full charges (4 hours) to vacuum my small 1 bedroom apartment. Other than that it does work well at vacuuming floors.

Purchased in for $800.

Super efficient and easy to use

published

We have used our Dyson cordless vacuum for over 12 months now and find it to be so efficient on all types of flooring and so very easy to use. The life of the battery pleasantly surprised us along with the attachments for other uses such as car cleaning.

Low battery longevity

published

On the maximum setting, it goes flat after 10mins. It lasts longer on the standard setting, but not as strong. Vacuuming anticipating it to go flat. Had to keep the old corded vacuum for times when the whole house needs to vacuumed. It also can't pick up raw rice from tiles on either setting.

Great for small houses

published

If you have a medium to large house a second battery would be required to complete or so it in two stages.
Product is fine and powerful. The hanger for charging is great

Lightweight beast!

published

This vacuum is great! I use on my hardwood floors and carpet and it works great. Comes with multiple attachments - the best is the mini motorised head which is perfect for carpets and couches and gets every bit of dust. The hard surface head doesn’t scratch my hardwood floors either. Profile is sleek too so it can hang in my pantry. Only issue I have is the battery… doesn’t last as long as I would like it to.

Purchased at JB Hi-Fi for $899.

Tile and carpet. Love how it works on both the floors without any height adjustments. Collects a lot of dirt and easy to empty the canister. The battery lasts for quiet a while.

Questions & Answers

Annie

V8 Absolute

Do the filters on the V8 wear out. I have a V8 which is a few years old but the filters keep clogging or I think it is that as it splutters a lot. I clean the filters but within a short time it is off again. I have checked all the nozzle and there are no clogs there.

Thanks. Yes, I have found since that the problem seems to be the head not the filters. I will have to give that a good clean.
