When it comes to cordless vacuums, Dyson is miles ahead of the competition with a slew of innovative designs that perform better in every way and, in keeping with the ethos of their founder Sir James Dyson, help to solve problems that others ignore. In that regard, the new Dyson V15 Detect Absolute cordless vacuum that has just arrived in Malaysia in two different variants is literally the ultimate solution to tackle dust, dirt and crud around the home in a decisive fashion.
Alongside the new Dyson V15 Detect Absolute, Dyson is also releasing a new Pet Groom Tool to help with grooming pets as a separate purchasable attachment for the V15 and which is compatible with older models too including the Dyson V12 Detect Slim, Dyson Digital Slim, Dyson V11, Dyson Cyclone V10 series, Dyson V8 series and Dyson V7 series.
Dyson is also releasing a special Detail Cleaning Kit that combines an ultra soft scratch-free dusting brush attachment, also for the V15, the V12 Detect Slim, Dyson Digital Slim, Dyson V11, Dyson CYclone V10 series, Dyson V8 and Dyson V7 series vacuums that can clean scratchable surfaces like displays and TVs paired with an awkward gap ool to reach around tight corners and an extension hose too.
What is the Dyson V15 Detect Absolute vacuum
Intended as the most powerful cordless vacuum in Dyson’s line-up, the Dyson V15 Detect Absolute is intended as the successor to the older Dyson V11 Absolute that was launched in 2019 in its role as a top of the line powerful vacuum with the best suction power and performance available in the market whereas the Dyson V12 Detect Slim is intended as an evolutionary offshoot that aims to be a lighter, more affordable system optimised for the Asia market while the older Dyson Omni-Glide and its special omnidirectional cleaner head is intended to tackle the typical hard floors in Malaysia.
For Malaysia, Dyson is releasing the V15 in two variants with the mainstream Dyson V15 Detect Absolute and a top of the line Dyson V15 Absolute (HEPA) which has an integrated HEPA filter that can capture and filter the tiniest bits of dust and which has more useful attachments. Common to both designs is a powerful cleaner head with an eye-safe green laser that can detect nigh invisible motes of dust to truly ensure a thorough clean, hence its name.
In terms of performance, the Dyson V15 Detect Absolute hosts a hyperdymium engine which has 240AW (Air Watts) easily the higher amount of suction power currently available in a consumer vacuum.
All this dust is captured in an advanced 5-stage filter that captures 99.99% of particles as small as 0.3 microns while expelling cleaner air out but in the case of the Dyson V15 Detect Absolute (HEPA), the air goes through a more robust HEPA filter that can capture ultra-fine particles down to 0.1 microns, making it one of the best filters available in a cordless vacuum.
After factoring in consumer feedback, the new Dyson V15 Detect Absolute features a special motorised Digital Motorbar cleaner head that can effectively tackle one of the most common things left around our homes – hair be it human, feline or canine. While Competing designs frequently end up with long strands tangled around portions of the cleaner head, the new Digital Motorbar cleaner head has 56 special hair removal vanes spaced along its interior structure that are carefully angled to ensure hair doesn’t tangle and goes straight into the dust bin for disposal.
The design also has a piezoelectric sensor that can actually measure the size of the dust you suck up during a cleaning session to show that you’ve indeed undertaken a deep clean.
What’s the difference between the Dyson V11 and the Dyson V15 Detect Absolute?
Aesthetically speaking, both the Dyson V11 and Dyson V15 Detect Absolute have a similar inline layout with a pistol-style trigger guard, a forward mounted dust bin and an underslung battery pack but where both differ is that the latter has way more suction power, features and versatility.
Straight off the bat, the Dyson V15 Detect Absolute has a more powerful Dyson Hyperdymium 240AW (Air Watts) motor versus its predecessor’s 185AW motor. On top of more suction power, the new Dyson V15 Detect Absolute also has a rear LCD display that, combined with special piezoelectric sensors that constantly scans the dirt being sucked up. tells you just what exactly you’re sucking up.
Better yet, the Dyson V15 Detect Absolute is able to dynamically adapt its suction power to adapt to what dirt you’re attempting to vacuum up. This is also on top of enhanced cleaning attachments capable of tackling ultra fine dirt with the aforementioned Dyson V15 Detect Absolute (HEPA) variant that integrates a more robust HEPA filter into its design.
What cleaner heads and attachments do you get in the Dyson V15 Detect Absolute (HEPA) and Dyson V15 Detect for Malaysia?
The Dyson V15 Detect Absolute for Malaysia comes with two motorised cleaner heads and 5 additional accessories that complement and expand its functionality. The Dyson V15 Detect Absolute (HEPA) has the same motorised cleaner heads but has a total of 7 additional accessories with some slight overlap as the standard model.
You get an up-top adaptor ideal for cleaning the tops of cupboards and high places, a comb-crevice tool for dusting off hard to reach corners, a powerful fabric and mattress tool capable of sucking up motes of dust from a mattress, a hair screw tool, a mini soft dusting brush that is perfect for cleaning monitors and TVs and a docking station.
In general, the standard model is ideal for general purpose use all about the house but the HEPA model and its ultra fine filter has accessories ideal for cleaning more delicate items like monitors, mattresses and in hard to reach places.
