How To Know Which Dyson Vacuum You Have?
Almost all appliance companies, Dyson vacuums included, make sure that the product specifications are placed on the product itself. We all know that once you've opened your brand-new vacuum, all the accompanying paperwork and manuals get stored and forgotten. The fact that Dyson produces a wide array of vacuums does not help when you have no access to your vacuum's official paper
The location of the model number and other product specifications will depend on what type of vacuum you have. If you have a stick-type vacuum, it will be under the battery. If you have the upright type, it could either be on the bottom of the unit or behind the handle.
And if you have the canister type, it should be on the bottom of the unit. You can also check behind the dust container if the product details you are looking for are available.

Dyson Stick Vacuums
Stick vacuums are one of the latest innovations from Dyson. They are small, lightweight vacuums that are great for everyday use.
In this design, the motor and suction head are both integrated into the unit. So, you simply push it back and forth to clean the area. It has also replaced the vacuum bag from traditional vacuums with a dirt cup to trap dirt and debris. Due to its size, so you may have to empty the cup regularly.
Dyson Stick Vacuum Models
Dyson has produced one of the most competitive stick vacuums in the market. Let’s take a look at their best-selling models to help you choose the most suitable one for you.
Dyson V15 Detect Vacuum
This is Dyson’s most powerful cordless vacuum with laser illumination that detects microscopic dust. It features two cleaner heads which claim to produce 1.5 times more suction and 54% higher bin capacity. However, at 6.8 pounds, it weighs more than its predecessors.
Dyson V12 Detect Slim
With its improved battery performance, Dyson V12 is a mid-range cordless vacuum that is great for floors. It is unbelievably lightweight, just 4.8 pounds, and easily clears away both small and large debris on the floor.
Dyson Cyclone V10 Vacuum
This vacuum, despite its cheaper price, is a competitive vacuum cleaner suitable for bare floors. It's easy to maneuver and has a wide range of compatible tools and accessories. Although its lightweight, 5.7-pound build makes it feel a little fragile, this stick vacuum offers a great deal for consumers.
Corded Vs Cordless Vacuums
Stick vacuums' compact and portable design works fantastic for hard-to-reach areas in the house. There are two types of stick vacuums available: corded and cordless.
As the name suggests, corded vacuums require an electric outlet to function and provide you with powerful performance without the fear of running out of battery. However, the length of the cord limits the area that the vacuum could reach. In 2018, Dyson announced that they no longer develop corded vacuums.
A cordless vacuum eliminated the need of being connected to a power source. It comes with replaceable or rechargeable batteries. This allows you to reach practically any part of your house without worrying about an electrical outlet.
However, this equipment has limited running time that is dependent on the battery life. In addition, claims suggest that cordless vacuums are less durable than their corded counterparts.
Cordless Vacuum Battery Life
When using cordless vacuums, charging and running time are the most important factors to look out for. Opt for equipment with a short charging time and a longer running time. On average, stick vacuums take 4 hours to recharge and 13 minutes of running time.
Dyson Cordless Replacement battery
Dyson Cordless vacuums have a 2-year warranty. Within this period, you may contact Dyson for replacement if you experience problems with your unit. However, if your device is already out of the warranty period, you may check for the following signs to identify whether you need a battery replacement or not.
- If your cordless vacuum running time is reduced even if it is not on MAX power mode.
- Typically, a Dyson vacuum lets you know if its battery needs replacement when it displays more than 12 lights.
What To Look For When Buying A Stick Vacuum Cleaner
Stick Vacuums come in different price ranges and unique features. It is best to identify the factors that weigh in best for you.
Vacuum/ Suction Capability
This indicates the negative pressure or lifts that the vacuum cleaner produces while running. It should be powerful enough to pick up dirt, debris, and other messes around the house. A typical household or industrial vacuum cleaner produces 2000 to 3000 mm of water ( 200kPa to 100kPa).
One of the few things you need to check before buying a vacuum cleaner is its suction power. It indicates how powerful the vacuum cleaner is. For machines with one motor, it should measure between 250W to 450W.
Higher suction power means better cleaning results as indicated in the International Standard for measuring vacuum cleaner performance, EN 60312.
Size And Weight
Household chores tend to be more difficult if you’re working with big and heavy equipment right? Most of the time, this is the reason why we put off cleaning or vacuuming our house. Thus, the size and weight of the vacuum greatly affect our choice when buying the item.
Stick vacuums are generally made to be portable and lightweight. Still, there are models which are even smaller and more compact. This is a great choice, especially for the disabled or elderly.
Floor heads such as brush rolls are necessary for cleaning carpets and rugs. However, for stick vacuums, it helps if you have the option to turn this feature off. Turning off the brush roll ensures safety as it avoids debris from flying around when cleaning hard or smooth surfaces.
Some stick vacuums convert to handheld vacuums by simply removing the tube that connects to the head. Handheld vacuums clean non-floor surfaces such as furniture, car interiors, and other upholstery. With this feature, you won’t have to purchase a separate vacuum for these parts.
Dyson Stick Vacuum Accessories
One of the main benefits of knowing your Dyson model is to identify compatible accessories. Accessories offer added features to the device. It allows the older version of vacuum cleaners to keep up with the latest developments and innovations.
Light Pipe Crevice Tool
To keep up with the latest technology of Dyson Detect V15 which offers laser illumination to detect microscopic dirt, Dyson has come up with an accessory to provide the same feature as its earlier versions. This crevice tool lets you reach into the dark and narrow spaces to help you see what you are cleaning. Add this to your Dyson Outsize, V11, Cyclone 10, V8, and V7 vacuums for the complete experience.
Proper storage for any equipment is essential to extend its lifespan. If it is not done correctly, you may end up damaging the device and spending additional costs for repairs. Dyson Floor-Dok is a free-standing aluminum dock designed not only for storage but also for charging Dyson Detect 15, Outsize, and V11.
Stubborn Dirt Brush
This is a perfect addition to the set of brushes for your Dyson Detect V15, Outsize, V11, Cyclone V10, V8, and V7 vacuum cleaners. It has stiff nylon bristles to scrub dried-on dirt on high-traffic areas and car interiors. With a wide mouth design, it covers a large area while sweeping.
