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 5 out of 5 by from A real game changer I'm an asthma sufferer, so Dyson's proven technology was a no-brainer. Chose the V8 as it's got the power and the necessary battery life for a 4 bed and then some. Using it is a real joy - we have become addicted to this gadget. It's light, portable and powerful. We can clean the 4 beds, kitchen and hallway, stairs and landing in 30 minutes. With no cables to lug around and it's ergonomic design, it has totally changed the way we keep our house clean and safe.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Convenient Convenient and easy to use. Very good suction, have used on carpets and hard floor and pleased with the results. Had to remember to mop up splashes from kitchen sink as any moisture left on floor created tiny electric shocks- as listed in the instructions. The handheld section is good for windowsills and dead flies and spillages on floor. Not as good for cleaning black carpet in the car though, left hairs behind.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good hoover, be aware of the 5 hour charge time This is an extremely useful hoover, good for the stairs, bedrooms and hard to reach places but I will still be keeping a hold of my upright hoover. We charged it up when we got it and it only lasted 7 minutes as it was on max mode, so we fully charged it up again and it took 5 HOURS which is absolutely ridiculous so be aware beforehand, that's one reason our upright is staying put. My wife also keeps getting blisters on her hand when using this and has to put plasters on herself thumb to stop it rubbing against the handle. I often think will this hoover stand the test of time and often wonder why the cordless only comes with a 2year guarantee!!!! Probably because of the battery life, time will tell.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Give it a try, you will not regret it. Im in a wheelchair and it was my brother who recommended I get this as i already have a Dyson Animal, but it is to heavy for me to use. I was very skeptical about the Absolute, due to the fact Ive got a cordless hoover already and it's ok but not great. (Not a Dyson) Anyway The price tag was a bit high, but I thought I would give it a go. Wow Im so glad I did, it's and amazing piece of kit. Firstly the storage - It takes up No floor space at all. It just sits in it's charger and is ready to use. My Grandchildren can be messy little monkey's. But this makes such light work of it, i wish i would have done it sooner. Also I would challenge anyone to come and see if they can find my Dyson. Ive got it behind a curtain. (Even though you could have it on show as it looks very modern and sleek). Quiet, I can get this out and have a quick tidy round even when my Grandson is sleeping (Which is the ideal time to use it). Powerful - It has got a Boost feature and trust me when it says it is a Boost feature it really is. it lifts the pile on my carpet so you know it has cleaned deep down. Emptying tank, could not be easier and nothing gets trapped inside, so your hands stay clean. Changing attachments - You do not need use any effort at all as they all just slot in and the release button does not take a huge amount of pressure (Which I have not got anyway). It is the lightest touch and it is swapped over. But do not be fooled they are held in place securely. Ive got a 4 bedroom bungalow, and have got Carpet as well as laminate and slate Tiles, it works great on all surfaces. I think the real test of a good Vacuum is not if it can pick up bit items, but if it can pick up the very small items like fluff that can get stuck in the pile of your carpet. Well this does it a treat. I have no need to go around after hoovering picking up the bits it left behind. Dyson are very clever they know once you have tried one you will never use anything else. This Dyson may be very small, but it has got something for everyone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best thing EVER Been making do with a 10 year old dyson, and with much huffing and puffing decided to go for the V8 Absolute. I thought it was over priced, and wasn't sure whether the premium over the V7 was worth it. i did trust the brand however. i thought i would need to keep my old dyson for tougher jobs. i couldn't be more wrong - this thing is awesome! i love it. i use it multiple times a day as it is so easy, versatile and convenient. The standard suction is pretty good, however when the boost is on, it seems so much better than my old plug in. it almost lifts the carpets up! i would recommend this to anyone - worth every penny.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very easy to use Only had it a couple of days but very pleased with the ease of use. Lightweight so takes much less time than with my old vacuum. Was a little disappointed with the literature that came with it. Would have expected a list of tools, just to be sure I had everything that was supposed to be included really and also the best use for each tool but sure I will sort it out myself. Expect to be using it a lot more often than my old vacuum.
