High performance and versatility: Dyson Cord-free vacuums
Built on 15 years of motor and battery expertise, and over twenty five years of expertise in high performance cyclones, the Dyson V8 cord-free vacuum cleaner doesn’t just clean the floor. It quickly transforms between handheld and stick modes to clean down low, up high and everywhere in-between: marble floors, carpets, sofas, even the car.
15 cyclones, arranged across two tiers, work in parallel to capture and separate fine dust and debris from the airflow – flinging it into the clear bin. The latest Nickel Cobalt Aluminium batteries combined with the patented Dyson digital motor, which spins at up to 110,000 rpm, give Dyson’s cord-free vacuums their powerful, fade-free suction and versatility.
The Cord- Free vacuum cleaners are available in three variants – the Dyson V7 Animal, the Dyson V8 Animal+ and the Dyson V8 Absolute+.
Revolutionary hair care:Dyson Supersonic™ hair dryer
Traditional hair dryers can be heavy, bulky and difficult to maneuver. They can also blast air at high temperatures, which can cause extreme heat damage. Dyson engineers set out to rethink the hair dryer.
The Dyson Supersonic™ hair dryer uses a fast and focused airflow, which ensures quickdrying. It is engineered for balance in the hand, is quiet, and intelligently controls the temperature to help protect hair from extreme heat damage.
The Dyson Supersonic™ hair dryer is powered by the patented Dyson digital motor V9, created in-house, specifically for this machine. It is Dyson’s smallest, lightest, and most advanced digital motor. Many conventional hair dryers have the motor in the head of the machine. Because the Dyson digital motor is engineered to be powerful yet compact, it is small enough to be positioned in the handle.
The Supersonic™ hair dryer is available in the Iron/ Fuschia color combination. In addition, consumers will be able to purchase a special edition Tan Leather Gift Box Bundle designed by James Dyson.
Intelligent, Connected purifiers: Dyson Pure Cool Link™ Air Purifier (Tower and Desk version)
Dyson’s intelligent Air Purifiers help combat indoor air pollution and allergies using Dyson’s patented Air Multiplier™ technology and a 360° Glass HEPA filter. The purifier captures 99.95% of potentially harmful particles as small as 0.1 microns– trapping them in the filter and eradicating them from the air you breathe at home. Sensors inside the machine automatically detect changes in conditions, before adjusting airflow to maintain the target air quality. Available for iOS and Android platforms, the Dyson Link App enables users to remotely monitor the indoor air quality and change the settings.
The Pure Cool Link purifiers are available in Iron/Blue and White/ Silver colours.
