Samsung’s Power Stick Pro vacuum takes aim at Dyson

Samsung has unveiled a superpowered handheld vacuum cleaner, and it’s so fancy that even Dyson might have reason for concern.

The Power Stick Pro’s most noticeable design feature is a dual brush bar head. That’s one more brush bar than other vacuum cleaners. The bars spin in opposite directions, so you don’t need to sweep forwards and backwards. Then there’s the handle, which folds to reduce wrist strain when you clean lower spaces.

It’s also seriously powerful. Samsung says the Power Stick Pro’s digital inverter motor spins “faster than a tornado”. Whatever that means, it boasts 150W of suction power, versus the Dyson V8 Absolute’s 115W. Speaking of power, the 32.4V battery lasts for up to 40 minutes.

The Power Stick Pro also boasts HEPA filtration, which promises 99.9% of the dust collected stays in the canister. Good news for allergy sufferers.

“Samsung Electronics’ Power Stick Pro sets a new paradigm for cordless vacuum cleaners,” explains Samsumg, “by combining industry-leading suction power, an ergonomic design that twists and turns for easy manoeuvring, and innovations that provide the ultimate cleaning solution.”

To really win you over, Samsung has also released an in-depth “vacuum experiments” video showcasing the Power Stick Pro’s impressive cleaning capabilities:

Samsung didn’t mention a release date or price, but if it costs a sensible amount, Dyson might have a good fight on its hands.
