The latest news from Dyson

1Tested against ASTM F1977-04 (particles sized 0.3-0.5 microns), tested in Boost mode.

2In Eco mode on hard floors.

3Quantity and size of dust displayed on screen varies depending on usage. Technology is optimised for Auto mode with a powered cleaner head. Particle size and densities vary. Examples shown may occur within one or more displayed size range. Some particles have a range including sizes smaller than 10µm, which may not be detected. Testing based on average in home usage according to Dyson internal test data. Dyson defines microscopic dust as <100 µm based on Dyson’s internal research. Increase in suction power is only experienced in Auto mode when triggered by increased concentration of dust according to Dyson internal test method.

4Suction tested to IEC 62885-4 CL5.8 and CL5.9, loaded to bin full, in Boost mode.

5Compared to Dyson V15 Detect Total Clean.

6Tight spaces refer to gaps that are wider than 20.7cm.

7In Eco mode when using a non-motorised tool.

8Suction power tested in most powerful mode.
