Let’s be honest: nobody loves housework. But over the years, the engineers at Dyson have worked tirelessly to ensure that staying on top of a tidy home is as quick and painless as possible.

While the company has revolutionised everything from hand drying to hair styling and air purification in recent years, its crown jewel remains its range of cordless vacuums. Since 1993, the company has been steadily refining its cleaning technology, and three decades later, it has perfected the art with the cord-free flagship V15 Detect, available for £600.

Brilliantly designed, lightweight and capable of accessing hard-to-reach places, the V15 Detect is a must for any home. If you haven’t had the pleasure of going cordless before, here’s exactly what you’ve been missing.

Breeze through your rooms in minute

If you’re still dealing with a traditional vacuum, you’ll be all too familiar with the stop-start process. Grab your vacuum, wheel it through to the starting room, then unwind the cord, kneel down and plug it in. Once you’ve finished awkwardly pushing the vacuum around the room, trying your best to dodge the cord, you have to repeat the process all over again.

With the cordless Dyson V15 Detect, the process is far simpler. Grab your vacuum and start, going from room to room with no stoppages and no kneeling down whatsoever.

Deep-clean your whole home thanks to the Dyson Hyperdymium™ motor that spins up to 125,000rpm, generating powerful suction. With less faff and more action, vacuuming is no longer a chore you will find yourself wanting to put off.

A battery to cover the whole home…

You may be nervous about the idea of a battery-powered vacuum, and understandably. Some of Dyson’s competitors have charges that are only good for 15-20 minutes before giving up the ghost – not ideal in a larger home.

But Dyson’s engineers understand that the battery is the Achilles’ heel of many devices, and have ensured that the latest models have phenomenal stamina.

Technology inside the cleaner head allows the vacuum to intelligently adapt power across different floor types, ensuring that the seven-cell lithium-ion battery on the V15 Detect will go for up to an hour1.

… And your vehicle, too

Aside from portability, there’s one key advantage of not being tethered to the wall: you can easily take your vacuum out of the house to clean the car.

No more relying on the comparatively weak suction of handheld vacuums: the Digital Motorbar clean head powerfully removes dirt and hair from all floors. With the Dyson V15 Detect, your vehicle can remain every bit as dust-free as your home with minimal effort.

Always ready to go

If you’ve been reading this thinking that you could do without another device to keep charged, don’t worry: Dyson’s engineers have built convenience into the heart of the company’s cordless vacuums.

Each one comes with a clever dock that can be mounted to a wall. Once your home is blissfully dust-free, just pop the vacuum back onto the wall and it will immediately start charging, ensuring your V15 Detect is always ready to go – whether you need a quick once-over or a deeper clean.
