Let's have a quick look at the newest models.

The Dyson V10 is powered by the Dyson digital motor. It generates the suction power of a full-size vacuum. In high power settings, it delivers 150 AW.

It also has a 760 ml dustbin that is a big one for a cordless machine. The Dyson V10 generates enough power to provide deep cleaning on carpet flooring even on medium power settings. The cleaner is perfect for pet hair. 

The built-in battery lasts up to 60 minutes before the vacuum needs to recharge. 

The V10 and V11 might be the only cordless vacuum cleaners that provide deep cleaning on all types of carpet flooring even high-pile ones. 

The Absolute version comes with two main cleaning heads: soft-roller one for hardwood floor cleaning and the Torque drive cleaner head that agitates dust and dirt from carpets.

The Dyson V11 is equipped with a display that shows estimated battery level and allows switching between three cleaning modes: eco, auto, boost. 

Also, it has the same torque drive head inside which you will find a floor detection sensor that boosts up suction power once it identifies carpeted surface. 

Even though, the Dyson V10 has one of the most powerful motors in the industry, the V11delivers 185 AW in the boost mode. 

Aside from the display, more suction, and floor detection, the Dyson V11 provides longer cleaning even with a motorized brush and makes less noise than the V10. 

Other than that, the Dyson V11 has the same design, same dustbin size, charging dock, and filtration system as the Dyson V10. Our Dyson cordless vacuum cleaners comparison chart explains the differences between them all. 

When it comes to older versions like the Dyson V6, V7 and V8, there are alternatives on the market that can compete with Dyson. Let's have a look at the best of them.

The dustbin holds about 300 ml of dust which is one the smallest size. The MultiFlex feature is helpful for getting under furniture

The cleaner has a few options: you can switch between low and high power settings. High power settings have a 1-minute timer which is unusual.
