Key Features

  • 2.3kg handstick cordless vacuum cleaner
  • 20-minute battery life with trigger mechanism
  • Trio of specialised cleaning heads
  • Review Price: £400

The Dyson V6 Fluffy is the lightest vacuum in our selection. While its 20-minute run time sounds prohibitively short, its trigger system ensures it's only powered when you're actually cleaning. You'll be pleasantly surprised how much cleaning you can get done in 20 minutes.

It helps that the Fluffy is an outstanding cleaner. It comes with a brilliant 'Fluffy' head that's designed for hard floors. It specialises in scooping up large debris with ease, while there are separate powered brush tools for carpets and furniture. It's a complete package and its design makes it very versatile – it fits under most furniture and is perfect for cars, stairs and even kitchen tops.

The only bad thing about it is the price and the small 0.4-litre bin – it needs emptying after each session, normally. If you can't stomach the cost, consider the £100 cheaper Dyson V6

a little surprised that the Shark Rocket Ultra-Light vacuum (hv302) wasn't included in this comparison as well?. we have the full sized dyson but for Christmas wanted a lighter vacuum so picked up the shark. nothing wrong with our dyson, just a bit cumbersome to haul all over the house.

we didn't expect much from the shark thinking it would work on par with other ultra-light models we've had in the past. boy were we wrong. not only did it cost a lot less but it works in my opinion nearly as good as the big dyson.

the surprising power from the small motor is something only made possibly by recent tech innovations, rare earth elements, stronger magnets,..amazing how much things have advanced over the course of just a few years. the only thing going for the larger dyson as opposed to the much smaller shark is the size of the dust bucket.

so the shark is something to consider when looking. fyi we got her shark on cyber monday so it cost even less, a little over a hundred bucks for the corded version.
