Dyson V8 Absolute Cordless Vacuum Cleaner

Never knowingly undersold

We like it because...

It’s the complete package: power, versatility and comes with a soft roller cleaner head that’s fabulous on hard floors.

Product information

Designed to deliver high performance cleaning on all floor types, the Dyson V8 Absolute Cordless Vacuum Cleaner is a powerful and versatile option for keeping your house clean.

Featuring a direct-drive cleaner head and powered by the Dyson digital motor V8, this model generates more suction than any other cordless vacuum* and picks up both large debris and fine dust for complete hard floor cleaning.

Engineered for complete hard floor cleaning, the soft roller cleaner head sucks up both large debris and fine dust simultaneously, ensuring you get the best clean on all surfaces.

A highly efficient post-motor filter captures allergens inside the machine and expels cleaner air than the air you breathe, ensuring a more hospitable environment for you and your family.

Thanks to a revolutionary, lightweight cord-free format, the V8 also transforms for easy cleaning up high, while the handheld mode is ideal for cleaning the sofa, stairs, or in the car.

New battery chemistry delivers up to 40 minutes** of fade-free suction to clean even more of your home on a single charge, while a new hygienic bin ejector drives out trapped dust and debris in single action, so there’s no need to touch the dirt.

Other features:

  • The mini motorised tool removes ground-in dirt and pet hair from upholstery and confined spaces such as car footwells
  • The powerful max mode offers higher suction for more difficult tasks.
  • Key components like the motor and battery are positioned near the hand to shift the centre of gravity making the cleaning end of the vacuum much lighter
  • Many rival products have a charger you have to unravel and plug in, but the V8 has a charging station instead
  • The air flow paths through the machine have been reworked, the post-motor filter has been redesigned and acoustic felt and closed cell foam has been inserted inside the machine to reduce noise
  • With the Quiet Mark stamp of approval, this appliance will work discretely without disrupting the tranquillity of your home


*Comparison against cordless stick vacuums. Suction test based on IEC 60312-1, 5.8 and 5.9 loaded to bin full.

**25 minutes with the direct drive cleaner head and 30 minutes with the soft roller cleaner head
