Dyson Cordless V8 Absolute Upright Vacuum Cleaner
Through the power of Dyson's Cordless V8 Absolute Upright Vacuum Cleaner, you can conveniently clean up homes with dust and allergens. Its Direct-Drive Cleaner Head provides deeper dirt removal for your carpets. The V8 Absolute's whole machine HEPA filtration captures allergens and expels cleaner air than the air you breathe. You'll be able to capture even fine dust through its 2 Tier Radial™ Cyclones that house 15 cyclones working parallel for increased airflow.
The Dyson Cordless V8 Absolute is powered by a Lithium-ion battery to deliver up to 40 minutes of powerful fade-free suction. With a Max Power mode, you can handle difficult tasks with a simple slide switch to select a higher suction for up to 7 minutes. When the battery runs low, simply place the cord-free V8 Absolute vacuum onto the convenient docking station and allow it to recharge. Charging and storing the vacuum on the docking station means it's always ready to go. The docking station can also hold additional attachments for your convenience.
In 1978, James Dyson became frustrated with his vacuum cleaner's diminishing performance. Taking it apart, he discovered that its bag was clogging with dust, causing suction to drop. He'd recently built an industrial cyclone tower for his factory that separated paint particles from the air using centrifugal force. But could the same principle work in a vacuum cleaner He set to work. Five years and 5,127 prototypes later, he had invented the world's first bagless vacuum cleaner.
James Dyson's vacuum cleaner was first sold in Japan, the home of high-tech products. Known as the 'G-Force', it impressed the Japanese with its performance and quickly became a status symbol, selling for $2,000 a piece. It also won the 1991 International Design Fair prize in Japan.
With the royalties from G-Force sales, James Dyson was able to set up his own company, Dyson Ltd. In 1993 he opened his own research centre and factory in the Cotswolds, and set to work making a new vacuum - one that would capture even smaller particles of dust. It was called DC01, for 'Dual Cyclone', and it was the first vacuum cleaner to maintain 100% of suction 100% of the time.
Today, there are Dyson machines in over 65 countries around the world. Dyson has grown from one man and one idea to a technology company with over 1,000 engineers worldwide. But it doesn't stand still. At its core is an ever-growing team of engineers and scientists. More ideas. More invention.
