Today, we’re going to be looking at two notable vacuums. The Dyson V8, and the Dibea D18. These are both stick vacuums. Stick vacuums are a type of vacuum that is very similar to an upright vacuum – the most popular type of vacuum – but instead of being as bulky and as hefty as upright vacuums, stick vacuums are light, mobile, and versatile.
Many people are choosing to go with a stick vacuum, instead of an upright vacuum. While there is a noticeable difference regarding power, with stick vacuums being weaker, it’s easy to understand why people are choosing stick vacuums.
Most people live in apartments. Some people live in really small studio apartments. These apartments don’t need especially large and powerful vacuums. Having a large vacuum can be counterproductive, because it makes vacuuming a trickier process, due to the small size of the average apartment. This is especially true if you don’t have much open space, to begin with, and need to squeeze the vacuum through tight and narrow paths.
If you’re one of those people, who are choosing to go with a stick vacuum, rather than an upright vacuum than this article is definitely for you!
The Dyson V8
Whether or not you’ve owned a Dyson vacuum before, you’re probably familiar with the name. Dyson is one of the greatest vacuum manufacturers around. The Dyson V8 does not contradict that status.
Weighing just under 6 pounds, and not having any cord to worry about, this is a lightweight vacuum. It has an incredibly simple design that gives you a lot of versatility. With just the press of a button, as well, you can transform the main vacuum into a handheld vacuum.
At the very top of the device, there is a nice, ergonomic handle. This handle is also the one you will use for the handheld vacuum. Having this handle enables you to grasp and control the vacuum with ease, at all times.
Now, right below the handle, there is the dirt cup. It’s a small dirt cup, but very easy to use. Just release it, and then take it over to the garbage can, and then press a button to release its contents.
On the bottom, there is the motorhead. This Motorhead offers some very powerful suction. Enabling it to suck deep within whatever surface you are vacuuming, such as carpets and rugs, for example.
The Motorhead also has a soft roller head that makes it easy to remove larger pieces of debris, and clumps of dust and pet hair.
Finally, as for the filtration, it uses a HEPA filtration system. This is a very powerful system that captures and filters out allergens and germs, on a step-by-step basis.
Just like the Dyson V8, the Dibea D18 is also a cordless stick vacuum. It has a similar design, and can also transform into a handheld vacuum.
Once again, at the very top, you have a nice handle that is very ergonomically pleasing. Below it, there is the dirt cup, which is also very easy to detach to release its contents. The dirt cup can hold up to 550ML of dirt, dust, and debris.
On the bottom, there is the motorhead. You have access to 2-Speed Control that is enhanced by 9000Pa of suction. It works best with hardwood and tile floors, but carpeting works well, too, as long as it isn’t especially thick or dense.
As for the brush itself, it lays flat, but you can swivel it while steering. This means that you can easily clean corners with it, and if you need to, go underneath furniture and other narrow and compact spaces.
Thanks to the LEDheadlights on the motorhead, you can simply pay attention to what the headlights are revealing, making it easier to create a good clean.
When you’re vacuuming, all of the stuff that you vacuum up is then sent through a filtration system known as an “Advanced Cyclonic Filtration System.” This filtration system consists of a sponge filter that you can wash in the sink, as well as a metal case that serves as the pre-filter case.
Finally, you have a 22.2V battery. If you’re using the vacuum on the highest mode, it can last for 25 minutes, which is quite a lot when you consider the power usage.
