Machine highlights

  • Dyson detects the particles you can't normally see

    A precisely-angled beam makes invisible dust visible on hard floors – so you don’t miss anything.¹

  • Measures microscopic dust particles

    A piezo sensor continuously sizes and counts dust particles – automatically increasing suction power when needed.³

  • Scientific proof of a deep clean³

    The LCD screen shows what’s been sucked up, displaying real-time scientific proof of a deep clean.³

Core technologies

  • Dyson Hyperdymium™ motor

    Powerful, lightweight digital motor spins up to 125,000rpm to suck up microscopic dust and large debris.

  • Root Cyclone™ technology

    11 root cyclones generate centrifugal forces of up to 100,000g to capture dust and debris from the airflow, so there’s no loss of suction.²

  • Energy-dense battery

    Each Click-in battery provides up to 60 minutes of fade-free power to clean here, there and everywhere around your home.⁶

Multi-stage filtration

Dyson’s fully-sealed filtration traps 99.99% of microscopic particles and allergens as small as 0.3 microns – and expels cleaner air.⁴

Carbon fibre filaments

Black anti-static carbon fibre filaments to extract fine dust from hard floors.

All features
