If you associate cordless vacuums with low battery life and anemic suction, Dyson has news for you: it’s 2019 and the Dyson V8 has greatly improved energy efficiency as well as far greater power.

The Dyson V8 Absolute is the latest in a line of cordless vacs that started in 2007 with the V16. As the product line matured, it gained floor tools, hoses, and wands that effectively turned the line into full-fledged vacuums.

The current V8 Absolute comes with a variety of tools that make it extremely useful. It has a soft roller cleaner head for wooden and tile floors and a direct-drive motorized cleaner head for carpeted flooring and upholstery.

Fans of cordless vacuums cite the lack of a restrictive cord or hose, greater maneuverability, a compact design, and the fact that one doesn’t have to unplug the vacuum while moving about the house.

Critics complain of a smaller bin, less power, the need to frequently recharge, and weight, since one holds the main component in one’s hand.

After charging the V8 overnight, it was time to see how it performed. Our baseline was an older Dyson canister vacuum that was bulky and loud but cleaned like a champ.
