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.

Had a V6 and wanted to upgrade without the cost of the latest version.

published

Current price NZ$499 looked a bargain compared to the latest offerings - and it is!
Does everything that was expected of it; better than the V6, and easier to empty with the newer mechanism.
Throw in the additional, small powered head, and it's the complete answer to any cleaning situation.
Our 3rd Dyson, and won't be the last.

Purchased in at JB Hi-Fi Online Store for $499.

This is a life saver

published

I use this Dyson on granite, floating timber as well as carpets in formal area and my car. I was asked not to use regular vacuum cleaner by my osteopath due to pain on my spine. As a result I had cleaner service weekly but stopped it during covid. My daughter left her Dyson vacuum when she went overseas. Now I use it and have no problem with pain unlike in the past. It’s design is great and worked well for a while. Lately had battery changed (3 yrs )there after it functions well.

waste of money

published

I had to replace the battery twice, once within the warranty period and again a few months out of it. I had Dyson's previously and was very happy with it, the V8 is not as good as the one I previously owned.

I used on my carpets and wooden floor as well. It's just if they have something for cars. It would be icing on cake. It doesn't have proper equipment for cars.

If all the vacuums I’ve used this cleans by far the best.

published

Mostly on carpeting. And some hard floors. Works really well on carpeting. Vacuum could benefit from longer lasting charge options. The storage attachments need improvement like easy attaching wall mounts.

Purchased in at Costco for $900.

Awesome

published

I use this vacuum on both my tiles and carpet.
I like the fact that you can select the strength of suction. I use normal suction on tiles and deep suction on carpet. Would be surprised how much extra dust it picks up even after vacuuming with our other vacuum cleaner. Only drawback is that if using deep suction it will not vacuum the whole house so by breaking up between deep and normal the battery will last

Super efficient and easy to use

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.

V8 Animal

We have hardwood floors throughout our house but we also have a long haired dog. I know the V8 animal is designed for pets and we are very open to that fact, however my question is, would the standard Dyson V8 do the job just as well [or close to as well] given the hard floor consideration or do you really only recommend the animal or animal plus version even with hard floors? Huge thanks!

Hi Di, each models machine variation will have different accessories included with the machine. The Dyson V8™ Origin just happens to be a model with less attachments.

Dyson V8

Details

As of December 2020, the Dyson V8 is the highest-rated cordless and stick vacuum cleaner on ProductReview. As well as being the highest rated, the V8 is also more afordable than other Dyson cordless and stick vacuum cleaners - such as the V11, which is around $300 more expensive.

Features:

  • The V8 series includes 4 different vacuum cleaners, with a $100 difference in price
  • Two power options: Max Mode for extra power, which is good for tough clumps of dirt or pet hair; and Powerful Mode, which allows for longer usage, but may provide a slighlty weaker suction
  • A 5-hour charge provides up to 40 minutes of use

Points of praise:

  • Some reviewers purchased the Dyson V8 after owning the V6 and reported noticing an improvement. Although they didn’t claim to be unhappy with the V6, many said that the V8 was more powerful and picked up a larger quantity of dirt and dust.
  • The highest power setting (Max Mode) latest longer than expected. One reviewer was pleased that they could vacuum their whole apartment while still having plenty of battery life left.
  • The vacuum was lightweight and easy to manoeuvre, meaning that people could clean hard-to-reach crevices and corners of the house.
  • Three large, shedding dogs proved to be no match for this vacuum cleaner. A happy reviewer mentioned that they could finally remove the mess their dogs had left behind.
