Product Description

Manufacturer's Description

The only handheld that doesn't lose suction.

'Dyson is all about developing new and better technology - and now Dyson's engineers have applied these principles to handhelds. Dyson Root 6 is the only handheld vacuum with powerful constant suction.' James Dyson. Other cordless handheld vacuums rely on filters to trap the dirt. These start to clog as soon as you start to pick up dust, causing loss of suction. A Dyson works differently - the dirt is spun from the air into the bin so the suction stays constant.

  • Twice the suction of others in use - Powerful constant suction
  • Root Cyclone technology - the most advanced Dyson cyclone technology
  • Up to 3x faster recharging - 21.6 volts lithium ion battery technology
  • Hygienic and quick to empty - one touch emptying - no need to touch the dirt
  • LED battery indicator - indicates battery charge levels and diagnostic status
  • No running costs - lifetime filters that never need replacing - just wash at least every 3 to 6 months
  • Lightweight and ergonomic - only 1.5kg with balanced weight distribution for easy handling
  • Durable tough construction - made from the strongest materials available to withstand bumps and bashes
  • Clear bin - tough polycarbonate lets you see how its working and when to empty
  • Combination accessory tool - debris nozzle converts to a brush tool for dusting
  • Large debris pick up - picks up crumbs and large particles
  • Crevice tool - extra tool for cleaning in tight gaps and awkward spaces
  • No extra costs - lifetime filters and no bags to buy
  • 2 year guarantee - fast service by Dyson

    We purchased this little dyson for times when you have irritatingly small jobs that you need a hoover for, but don't feel like lugging the large hoover in and out of the cupboard.
    I have twin girls, so you can imagine the mess!

    If you are looking for a vacuum cleaner, and expecting the productivity of the larger corded types, then forget this little one. However, if like me, you need it for cleaning up the crumbs and clearing day to day mess, like kitchen worktops after cutting bread etc, then this little one is perfect.

    I think that many reviews I have read are from people who wanted a miniature dyson, which was pretty much the same as their large one, but in my opinion, dyson couldn't really have done much more when designing it. It is light (weighs less than 3lbs), it looks nice, it's not huge, so it'll fit in your kitchen cupboard, and it has an easy empty function which is great, one click of a button and the dust is in the bin with no mess.
    .
    Yes the battery is a bit pants, but if they had made it with a bigger battery, you would never have been able to pick the thing up! It would have made it extremely heavy and cumbersome. And after all, it was never intended to be a full sized vacuum, it's a glorified dustbuster, so you can't really complain. Also I do believe that with each subsequent charge, my dyson is eeking a little more power into the battery each time, bit like when you get a new mobile, they tell you it won't get up to full capacity until you've charged and fully discharged it a few times.

    I can do the stairs and around the edges of my hall and landing thoroughly before it runs out. Today for example I got about 8 minutes out of it, which was plenty for me to do those two jobs.

    I was a bit worried when I ordered the DC16 as the reviews of its battery life were appalling. However I haven't found this to be the case. I know that it is a bit expensive but it is excellent with no loss of suction, super cool design, and it is a Dyson after all. It is not intended for use to clean the whole house but to hoover up small messes at a time. As long as it is replaced on the charger after every use I have never had the battery die on me.

    It is so useful especially cleaning up after 2 children, who are forever leaving a trail of crumbs behind them!!

    Great little gadget, worth the money.

    I nearly didn't buy this Dyson cleaner having read the reviews but went ahead anway as I was looking for a product that had a better performance than the dustbusters I had used over the last 10 years.

    I have not been disappointed at all and in fact this cleaner has surpassed my expecatation.

    If you need an easy to use but powerful cleaner to clear up mealtime detritus, mud on stairs etc then this has a much better performance than the 3 different dustbusters I had over the years due to the power of the suction and the useability of the included adaptors. By implication you are generally not needing it for a 6min clean and I have not had any problems wtih the battery running out or time taken to recharge. It is robust - capable of withstanding my 3year old dropping it down the stairs and has become invaluable in a very short period of time.

    However if you are looking for a hoover equivalent, you will be disappointed as that is not the function this product was designed for.

    I have an original Dyson upright cleaner and well impressed by Dyson technology so I splashed out and bought this Dyson baby.
    The down side is that the battery charge only lasts for just six minutes.
    Given that fact, they are six powerful minutes and user has to remember to switch on and off when moving the cleaneer from one area to another to save battery. The good news is that the battery charges remarkably quickly.

    Dear James Dyson, how about creating a Dyson DC16 which could be plugged into the mains?

    I pondered on whether to keep baby Dyson or return it after realising net reports on battery use time were correct, but it does the job and gets to places other cleaners cannot reach. However,the DC16 lives in a plastic bag and rarely makes public appearances on the grounds I forget I own one!

    This is a very useful gadget, as long as you understand it's a dustbuster type machine, not a miniature version of the corded Dyson. You get around six to eight minutes use per charge, and it takes three hours to charge from stone cold flat. It's intended to sit on its charger all the time. In this respect it's like a cordless drill - it's for tasks that don't involve protracted running, but brief shots to clean up corners, under radiators or whatever.

    Positives - funky appearance (we've called ours Blake, 'cos it runs for seven minutes and looks like something off the Liberator), easy emptying, full suction all the time.

    Negative - it would be good to be able to charge the battery out of the cleaner, and to be able to buy a spare battery, the way you can with other cordless tools.

    First off, let's get one thing out of the way - this obviously isn't a replacement for your main vacuum cleaner. It's pretty loud for a handheld but not as powerful as a 'full' Dyson, whilst its battery only lasts for a few minutes, so it's not really ideal for carpets or heavy use. You also can't plug it into a socket whilst using it either, so it really is intended as a supplement to your home machine and for getting into places where it would be awkward to try to get a home machine into.

    Having said all of that, it's very powerful for a handheld cleaner and copes very well with the daily build-up of dust and debris in my home. I find the battery charge perfectly adequate for everyday chores, particularly when you bear in mind the power of the machine. It's also smaller than I thought when I first saw pictures of it and it really isn't that heavy, although some flexibility in the neck would have been nice to get into harder to reach places. I also would have liked to see a proper brush tool included for cleaning curtains and upholstery, but I don't think it was never intended to be used in this way so this isn't too much of a problem. Dyson sell a DC16 tool kit containing these items and others, so I guess this omissions are easily remedied if you feel you need them.

    I also have a Dyson cylinder cleaner and I have found the DC16 to be an indispensable addition to my cleaning arsenal, at least as useful as its bigger brother and definitely worth the money. I think anyone buying one would find themselves much more likely to clean up when it's just a matter of getting the DC16 off the wall as opposed to having to get out, plug in and lug around a larger machine.

    And lastly, it might be a minor issue for many but the icing on the cake for me (and maybe for any self-respecting bachelor) is its looks - I reckon you'd find one in the cleaner's cupboard of the Starship Enterprise!
