    Size: 1 LStyle: Duo Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
    This is my first experience of an upright vacuum cleaner; I'm used to a corded cat and dog cylinder machine.

    The unique feature of the Air cordless is in the name; it runs on rechargeable batteries ... no cables to get caught, get stretched taut, pull themselves out of the socket (the "I'm sure the cable will stretch another couple of inches" moment), no more getting tangled up on the automatic cord rewind ... and all the other annoying things about cables. For me this vacuum cleaner takes me back to my first cordless drill ... such freedom.

    Anyway; how does it perform? Well; it's rather good actually. After setting up (more on that later) I proceeded to vacuum the whole house. I (really) had vacuumed the day before (parents of children's friends bringing their children round) and I thought I'd done a pretty thorough job ... the Air cordless has a clear dirt container ... oh dear! My old cylinder cleaner is old, but I look after it and it looks like the floors are clean when I've finished; well they were not, the cordless machine had found a disgusting amount of filth and it hadn't all arrived with the visiting children.

    I'm impressed now; no cables and a much more effective cleaner. Emptying and cleaning the dirt container is a doddle (easy to follow instructions in the guide book), no need to buy bags (or filters as it can be cleaned under the tap every 4 -6 uses).

    The machine weighs 4.6 kilos (sad, but I weighed it) and has a universal joint that allows easy manoeuvring around the furniture obstacle course. The cleaner's handle converts into a cleaning wand and it works very well, although perhaps it's a little shorter than I'd like. The machine has two accessories ...

    If you're thinking of getting one of these & like me it's your first cordless/battery powered vacuum cleaner, then it's worth being aware of a few things:
    i) It's not as powerful as a mains powered vacuum cleaner - but it is very effective at cleaning - particularly pet hairs. It can replace a mains powered cleaner if you use it regularly & avoid the need for deep cleaning; however it may stuggle picking up stones in a car
    ii) This is the single battery model - which is fine for an average sized house if you clean regularly, or use it in stints. I kinda wished I'd gone for the dual battery model, but it hasn't actually been a problem only having 1.
    iii) The turbo mode increases the suction power but will drain the battery a lot quicker. After a bit of testing I found it's rarely needed & only when using the hose; but if you use a seperate brush (in the other hand) rather than relying on the supplied soft brush; then that is more effective than just turining up the power.
    iv) The filter needs cleaning regularly otherwise you lose suction power. Rinsing it out as instructed works well, but can takes ages to dry - so I put it on a radiator to dry out quicker.
    v) Unlike the U85 model, it can't be unclipped to use with the hose; but it does have a handle & is fairly lightweight, so I just pick the whole thing up with the handle & this is fine - just be careful of bashing it into things as you move around.
    vi) When charging I found it best to leave the battery in the charger rather than leaving in the cleaner, because it seems to me the battery will lose a bit of power if left in the cleaner for a few days & run out quicker.
    Hope this helps - it's a great cleaner, different to mains powered models but definitely worth having as it's so much quicker/easier to whizz round the house with this - it saves a lot of time & means the house can be kept cleaner especially with pets.

    After the disaster of the mains corded Hoover Idol bagged stick vac, I tried the Vax Cordless Air and was smitten! So much easier without a power cord attached and so light and easy, it is amazing to think this space efficient vacuum can pick up as much dust as its mains powered Vax Mach Air series, which the Vax Cordless Air is based on. Thus, the main on and brush roll on/off controls are convieniently located at the top behind the handle at the top of the machine and assembly took me all of 10 seconds to put together - slide handle in to lock to the body, remove the blue tag filter insert, a couple of bags, install the small cleaning tool and there's enough power in the batteries to get you cleaning on first impressions - and on first impressions I was simply amazed!

    So let me put this as plain as possible. THIS IS NOT A FULL SIZE UPRIGHT VACUUM THAT WILL REPLACE YOUR NORMAL MAINS POWER VACUUM, not matter what Vax promise. IF you have a SUCTION ONLY PULL ALONG VACUUM, this HANDY brush roll assisted vacuum could be a good back up OR IF YOU HAVE PETS.

    The Vax AIR CORDLESS CAN take place of a motorised cordless sweeper though based on the fact that it cordless and incredibly lightweight with LOTS of SUCTION POWER ON FLOORS AND CARPETS and SWIVELS AROUND CORNERS. IT SADLY SUFFERS FROM POOR SUCTION THROUGH THE HOSE AND DOES NOT COME WITH A MINI TURBO BRUSH.

    There is edge cleaning facility on this model and the brush roll can be cleaned by two push release buttons on the underside if you have a lot of hair/pet hair to clean off.

    Here's just make a quick summary of this vacuum cleaner in terms of its cordless design and how it appeals to me:

    1) It is VERY LIGHTWEIGHT even lighter than an Oreck XL!
