NEWS – When it comes to vacuum cleaners, everyone knows the Dyson name. Their V-series stick vacuums are popular simply because they work and are way more powerful than many plug-in models. I love the Cyclone V10 vacuum I reviewed last year. It has replaced my older Ball Dyson upright I used for years.
Dyson has never been a company that’s rested on its success. They are constantly updating and innovating their products and that’s not changed for 2019. Dyson has recently introduced three new products: the V11 stick vacuum cleaner, the Dyson Pure Cool Me personal purifying fan and the Dyson LightCycle desk lamp.
The Dyson V11 stick vacuum is a major update to the venerable Cyclone V10. The V11 has what Dyson calls the Dynamic Load Sensor that controls the motor position 360 times-per-second, can detect brush bar resistance and automatically change motor speed between hard floors and carpet. The Dyson V11 vacuum lets you switch easily between Eco, Auto and Boost modes. Auto mode intelligently adapts suction power between carpets and hard floors. Boost mode provides twice the suction of any cord-free vacuum for intensive cleaning of ground-in dirt. Eco mode gives maximum run time for longer cleans. There’s a built-in LCD screen that reports run time, machine performance and reminds you about filter maintenance.
The V11’s digital motor spins up to 125,000 rpm generating 20% more suction than the Cyclone V10. Battery system monitoring measures capacity four times-per-second. The V11 comes with a wall-mounted charging dock.
The Dyson V11 Animal is available for $599.99 and the V11 Torque Drive (with more accessories) is $699.99.
The Dyson Pure Cool Me is a complete re-thinking of personal purifying fan technology. Homes can be 5 times more polluted than outside air and the personal purifying fan removes 99.97% of pollutants and allergens as small as .3 microns from the air. Air flow can be easily controlled by adjusting the dome with your fingers. It features Dyson Core Technology—a way to project a precise stream of air. Filters are easy to replace and the purifying fan even reminds you when to do it. It comes with a remote for easy out-of-reach control.
The Dyson Pure Cool Me is available for $349.99.
Finally, the Dyson Lightcycle task light uses time, date and GPS-driven algorithms to continually adjust color temperature and brightness in relation to local daylight. “Our bodies can be influenced by daylight’s changing spectrum of color and brightness. So our new light adjusts with the daylight where you live,” says Jake Dyson, Chief Lighting Engineer at Dyson.
We spend up to 90% of our time indoors, yet poor lighting can affect our eyes and even our well-being. Even if you don’t notice it, low light, glare or flicker can cause eye strain. The Lightcycle provides more than 1000 lux brightness, combined with glare protection and low optical flicker to help reduce this eye strain.
A free Dyson Link app continually communicates with the light to adjust for time, location and daily routine. There is both a desk and floor model available and are priced at $599.99 (desk) and $899.99 (floor). Visit dyson.com and Amazon for more information.
