Dyson continues to innovate, creating ever more powerful vacuum cleaners in smaller and smaller form factors. The V8 Absolute is the marriage of these technological advancements, boasting incredible suction capabilities in a truly mobile design - no cords, just performance.

Radial Cyclone Technology

This Dyson handheld vacuum cleaner is powered by the incredible 2-Tier Radial Cyclone system that has been meticulously engineered by Dyson to deliver uncompromising performance. A total of 15 cyclones are arranged in a 2-tier layout, working in concert to increase airflow and suction power - even fine dust is effectively picked up. There is a 0.54 litre capacity bin onboard, so you can capture a good amount of dirt per session, and the hygienic dirt ejector allows you to effortlessly empty your vacuum cleaner with a single action.

The V8 Absolute is capable of up to a maximum of 40 minutes use per charge, giving you plenty of time to get the job done. Additionally, a Max Power Mode allows for up to 7 minutes of high-powered suction to deal with particularly difficult tasks. Only weighing 2.61kg, this is a truly handheld vacuum cleaner that you will be able to comfortably hold for extended periods of time. The cordless design means that nowhere is off-limits to the V8 Absolute, enabling you to clean places you couldn't before.

Cordless Cleaning

This Dyson cordless vacuum cleaner comes with the superb Direct Drive cleaner head, which has longer bristles that reach deeper into carpets for an improved clean, and the Soft Roller cleaner head, which treats hard floors gently without sacrificing performance. The filtration system used is so advanced that air expelled by this vacuum is cleaner than the air you breathe - yet another sign of Dyson's dedication to pushing domestic technology further. Finally, a convenient Docking Station allows you to not only store the V8 Absolute effectively but also keep it charged and ready for whenever you need it most.

Benefits of the Dyson V8 Absolute Handheld Vacuum Cleaner

  • Incredible performance from the 2-Tier Radial Cyclone technology
  • Cordless design and lightweight construction makes this truly handheld
  • Vacuum for up to 40 minutes per charge in optimum conditions
  • Handy Docking Station keeps your vacuum cleaner at the ready

15 cyclones working in parallel across two tiers generate high centrifugal forces. More microscopic particles as small as 0.5 microns are captured from the airflow. And as with all Dyson vacuums, there's no bag, so there's no loss of suction.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good machine as a second cleaner I have had this for nearly a week now and it is amazing does as good as a corded machine. Only downside to it is that the battery is very poor and does not last long, This is why i can't give this a 5 star. It is brilliant as a second cleaner for quick clean up jobs but as a main vacuum cleaner a definite no no. Always keep a main corded one as your main cleaner other than that it is a very good machine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from ABSOLUTELY SUPERB!! Would not be without it now!! This Dyson V8 Absolute is one of my best buys EVER!! It has changed my cleaning routine forever - all for the better. I used to drag my Dyson Animal DC41 (also a great machine by the way) corded vacuum out, do the entire downstairs, unplug, wrap the cord around, then lug it up stairs, having to stop every few steps on the journey up, plug in, then hoover all upstairs rooms. I found I would only get my DC41 out every few days, when the carpets LOOKED like they needed a good hoovering. Now, I just do a bit of vacuuming at a time, at MY convenience. I vacuum more often. I whiz around with it in one sitting room and the hall. When I want to, I vacuum my large sitting room (it's not used that much). I just carry it (so easily) upstairs and do all bedrooms, perhaps just once a week. The sheer CONVENIENCE of just grabbing the V8 and quickly whizzing around any area is fantastic. No "putting off" doing the vacuuming any longer. Can you actually ENJOY vacuuming? Well I do now (sad - lol). My small sitting room is now vacuumed daily - and my carpet looks so much better for it!! I have 3 cats. Although they are very good, clean cats, the inevitable fur drop is there - but you don't see any cat fluff in sight these days. I used to think, "I'd better get the vacuum out" as I could see the odd few cat hairs....not now, whipping round every morning with my V8. It literally takes me about 3-4 minutes. No major panic if someone drops in unexpectedly! All the tools you need are provided with the V8. No more bending down to clean skirting boards - just leave the extension tube on and use the small narrower oval brush. I don't think the tops of my wardrobes have ever been continually clean - as they are now! Simply WONDERFUL for cleaning the stairs and mid-landing, as a handheld. Gets ALL bits out of car boots and foot wells - and as it's so easy to get out and use, the car interior has never looked continually clean. Suction power is incredible. On high power, quickly brings my cat beds and cat igloos up like new - not a hair in sight! It leaves vague "vacuuming stripes" on the carpet, so you can really see the carpet has been cleaned. You do NOT get 40 minutes use time if you are using the motorised power heads - it's about 25 minutes. You only get the 40 minutes if you are using the "manual" tools. That said, I find 25 minutes using the power heads is more than enough for me to do the whole house if I just give it a quick go over with the V8!! FIVE suggested improvements for a near perfect V8 product please Mr. Dyson: 1. Option to switch the V8 permanently ON. Yes, still have the push button option, but supply a SEPARATE PUSH BUTTON for permanently ON and OFF. 2. A bright front LED light (which you can have on or off), for doing dark corners, tops of wardrobes, behind furniture, etc. 3. A nice folding "carry bag" with appropriately sized sections or compartments to hold the individual tools, with a carry handle and hanging handle. 4. A Charging STAND that sits on the floor! I don't use the wall charger holder as I don't wan it hanging on one of my walls. The V8 is difficult to stand up alone, unless carefully propped up in a corner somewhere!! so a small CHARGING STAND would be just PERFECT. 5. A NON-SCRATCH tube. My lovely gold extension tube now has scratches (and I have been really careful when using it). By the way.....NO - I am not a clean-freak!! Lol. If you're "considering" getting the V8 Absolute - consider no more. Just get it. Expensixe? Yes - but it will change your laborious vacuuming chore into somewhat of a pleasure, give your carpets the chance to always look good and give you the ability to change your boring and heavy-going vacuuming routine!! I love, Love, LOVE my V8 and would never part with it. Thank you Mr. Dyson. Looking forward to a V9 model, with my suggested improvements above. Just please don't make it too expensive - so I can get one!! I'll be the first in the queue.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Powerful but horrible This is a powerful vacuum and the tools are as good as on any "normal" machine but it is the most unpleasant piece of equipment to use that I've ever encountered. I'm a normal strength, six-foot man with no impairments so not an unusual user by any means. However the vacuum balance is very poor, using it on ordinary flooring (tiles or carpet) is like holding a cavity block with a sweeping brush tied to it, and trying to push it through a field of gravel. The handgrip is cheap and nasty - 40 minutes of squeezing the trigger (why no latch ???) with the superfluous finger "rest" digging into my knuckle was enough to leave me with a blister and reaching for the insulation tape to tie the trigger down for the rest of the session. If you have RSI or arthritis I suggest you give this abomination a wide berth. And if you don't, you won't have long to wait. The combination of holding the trigger continually (putting your tendons in tension) and having to heave it back and forth (compressing the same tendons) while the swivel on it twists your wrist from side to side depending on the slightest resistance from the floor will have you swallowing ibuprofen in no time. No wonder commercial cleaners stick to the tried and trusted models.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome bit of kit Bought this from M.E. for £400 which was the cheapest place online at the time, £20 cheaper than Curry's or Dyson. Such a smart bit of kit; compact, powerful and it looks great. I just wanna clean up all the time! For most jobs it works great on its lower-power setting and also gives the longest battery life. Add an attachment and the time reduces. Switch to full-power and it drastically reduces the battery life, but it's not running 100% of the time like a conventional wired vacuum as you only press the trigger when required. Emptying the thing is a breeze also and you can do it much more regular because of this, so don't let the small bin put you off!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Portable, fast - I wouldn't go back to a standard upright ever again! We bought this after getting a cat as we knew we'd be vacuuming more often than we used to be. Cordless, fast and with a decent battery length this is absolutely perfect for us. Our old upright is gathering dust in the cellar!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from dyson v8 absolute very pleased with purchase, easy to use, lightweight yet powerfull,would recommend this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Grate Little Machine Bought this machine for the small jobs about the house but find that it gets the lounge carpet cleaner than the mane house cleaner I think that is because the carpet brush head is driven by the electric power from the battery and not from the sucksume power so that the rotating brush is always at full speed.
