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 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 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great cleaner Excellent product with all the handy tools required. So easy to use and store. Easy to clean. Love this product and would recommend. Start release button is excellent as you would normally leave vacuum cleaner on when moving objects. This way you do not loose charge time. Picks up dirt very well. I always clean after every use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I bought this a week ago after many weeks researching different machines to see which best suited my needs. The best desicion I ever made! I live in 3 /4 bed house with both carpet and hard floors. 5 people and a dog. Since purchasing this machine what used to take up a good chunk of my day can now be achieved in less than 15 minutes to an excellent standard. Every tool I need is included. Very easy to put together/exchange tools. Very simple to operate, Lightweiight and easy to move from room to another, my old corded machine now seems very heavy and cumbersome in comparison. Charging time is approx 5 hours, but since first operation I just plug it in to the charger to top up the charge which holds until the next day. I have not had to wait for 5 hours to use it on normal use. The charge has not run out during normal operation and I cleaned the whole house. On max power the battery managed to do living room, stairs, ( my stairs have now been vacuumed every day, as opposed to waiting until I could summon up the motivation and energy to tackle them with my old machine!) kitchen, bathroom, and bedroom. No problems with the dust canister getting full or having to be changed frequently during operation. Simple emptying, no dust clouds, no having to touch dust. I cannot honestly think of one single negative with this machine, my house has never been cleaned so thoroughly with such ease. I am extremely pleased with my purchase. My house is clean and I now have more time to do other things.
