Design

  • 0,2 gallon / 0,75 liter trash can
  • LCD screen displays accumulated dust level and remaining operating time
  • Comes with eight tools

On the surface, the Dyson V15 Detect Absolute looks a lot like the V11 range, including the motor, a 1 inch / 2,6 cm color LCD screen, the motor, which creates the suction, the cyclones which generate centrifugal force to ensure dust and dirt remains in the can and the 0,2 gallon / 0,75 liter dust container on top. Weighing in at 3,1kg / 6,8lbs, this is one of the largest and heaviest cordless vacuums we've ever tested.

However, under the hood, the V15 Detect Absolute receives some serious improvements over its predecessor, with the engine generating 230 watts of air, or 24% more suction power than the V11 range, while the piezo-acoustic pickup uses the sound to track the number and type. . dust particles collected by the vacuum cleaner, displaying this information on the LCD screen with the remaining battery level and the selected power level.

TheV15 Detect comes with two cleaning heads; The Laser Slim Fluffy cleaning head, which has a soft brush bar to ensure that hard floors are not damaged, is one of the tools that comes with the vacuum cleaner. Includes a class 1 laser diode (so safe for humans and pets) mounted at an angle of 1,5 degrees and 7,2 mm from the ground, which projects a beam of green light in front of the cleaning head to highlight dust particles microscopic that are invisible. to the eye.

The V15 Detect also comes with the high torque cleaning head which, when used in automatic mode, adjusts the power according to the type of floor you are cleaning during use. However, unlike the version that came with the V11 range, it now has 56 polycarbonate teeth that grind hair into small sections to prevent it from getting tangled around the bristles of the cleaning head.

The V15 Detect Absolute has three power levels which can be selected using the button on the top of the vacuum cleaner; And like other Dyson cordless vacuums, you can turn the V15 Detect Absolute into a handheld cleaner by removing the main wand and connecting one of eight included tools directly to the dust cartridge.

The V15 Detect Absolute has an interchangeable battery built into the handle, to reduce interruptions to your cleaning session, assuming you buy an extra battery. Dyson says the battery lasts up to 60 minutes between charges, but that depends on the power setting you're vacuuming on. A docking station and charging cable are also included with the vacuum.

Performance

  • Extremely powerful suction
  • The laser highlights the powder invisible to the eye
  • High torque head will adjust suction based on detected powder levels

At all power levels, the Dyson V15 Detect Absolute absorbed all the fine dust, cookie crumbs, and cereal we spread on carpets and hard floors in one slow pass, and it also glided easily over both types of floors. When we used the High Torque cleaning head and switched to automatic mode, the vacuum automatically increased the suction when the piezo-acoustic sensor detected high levels of dust and reduced it when it detected a drop in dust levels.

We were able to see the type and amount of dust drawn in by the V15 Detect on the LED display, which represented the different dust particles as a colored bar graph, while the remaining runtime was displayed below the graph. We were also able to use the button on the top of the vacuum to adjust the suction power.

On top of that, we were impressed with how much dust the Laser Slim Fluffy cleaning head actually pulled off our hard floors. Nous avons delibérément manqué les bords d'une pièce avec des sols durs, puis avons poussé la tête vers ces bords - avec le laser vert éclairé, nous avons été shoqués par la quantité de poussière, who n'était pas visible auparavant, se trouvait on the floor.

As mentioned, the Dyson V15 Detect Absolute also comes with the new Anti-Tangle Hair Screw tool, designed to remove human and animal hair from small areas such as sofas and car seats. During our tests, we deliberately removed a strand of human hair from a hairbrush and placed it on the sofa, then used the vacuum cleaner with the attached anti-tangle tool to suck it up; we were impressed to see that it sucked right into the cartridge without getting tangled around the tool bar.

Converting the vacuum to portable mode and vice versa was straightforward, as with other Dyson cleaners, this requires removing the main wand, although we found it to be slightly heavier to use in this mode than vacuums. Dyson's old ones, and we couldn't clean long before our arm started to hurt.

We also found the V15 Detect Absolute easy to empty - once the cleaning wand and accessories were removed, we were able to use the lever on the back of the dust cartridge to open the lid and eject the debris into the trash can. . . .

The vacuum was pleasantly quiet when used on lower power settings, but at maximum suction our decibel meter registered 81 dB, which is similar to a truck traveling on the highway at 40 mph, which is in fact one of the most powerful cordless vacuums we've tested.

Battery duration

  • 15 to 60 minute range depending on power setting
  • Battery takes 5 hours to fully charge
  • Interchangeable battery reduces cleaning interruptions

As we mentioned, Dyson claims the battery will last up to 60 minutes on the lowest setting, Eco, and in our tests we had a respectable 59 minutes before the vacuum recharged. It took approximately five hours to fully charge the battery with the supplied charger.

As we mentioned, the battery, which connects to the vacuum cleaner handle, can be replaced to ensure your cleaning session is not interrupted, as long as you buy extra batteries, of course.
