Dyson V11 

Let's talk about the Dyson V11. It comes in three options: Animal, Torgue Drive, and Absolute. So far, the Absolute is not available to buy in the US; however, it is on sale in the UK.

Dyson V11 Animal

The Absolute has the same accessory kit that the Torque Drive version and in addition the Absolute is equipped with a roller head that is more suitable for bare floor cleaning. 

The Dyson is equipped with a LED/LCD screen depending on a model. The LED display is basic, it shows battery level, and you can switch between cleaning modes, the LCD screen allows doing the same only it also has a countdown timer. 

The Dyson V11 is powered by the Dyson digital motor that delivers 185 W in max mode. So far, it is the most powerful cordless vacuum cleaner on the market. 

With a built-in battery, you get up to 70 minutes of runtime depending on the cleaning mode and a tool you're using. 

The best thing about the Dyson V11 - Dynamic Load Sensor (DLS) sensor. The cleaner recognizes carpeted surface and boosts up suction power to max level. When vacuuming a carpet, the battery drains faster, but the Dyson V11 is more efficient since the max mode is turned on only on carpet. 

The Dyson V11 has HEPA filtration, it is safe for allergy and asthma sufferers 

With a wall-mounted docking station, the Dyson V11 can be stored on a wall. It also holds some additional accessories.

Dyson v11 Animal: easy dust disposal

This vacuum is safe for allergies and asthma sufferers thanks to the HEPA filtration. The dustbin gets emptied by one simple move making cleaning user-friendly.  

The Dyson V11 is the most powerful cordless vacuum cleaner, it performs flawlessly on bare flooring and provides deep cleaning on high-pile carpets handling even ultra-fine debris. With long battery life, the cleaner is perfect for bigger homes, it gives you enough power even on low and medium power settings.

Tineco Pure One S12 

The Pure One S12 has 3 more other options: the Tineco Pure One S12 M, Tineco Pure One S12 M Lite, and Tineco Pure One S12 Plus. The "M" and "M Lite" versions are almost the same cleaners, but these models are different from the Tineco Pure One S12 and Tineco Pure One S12 Plus.

Tineco Pure One S12

In terms of cleaning performance, these vacuums are about the same. They are powered by a 150 W motor, have two detachable batteries in the box, come with many additional accessories, are equipped with a HEPA filter, and provide an up to 100 minutes long cleaning. 

However, the Tineco Pure One S12 and Tineco Pure One S12 Plus are a bit more advanced. The Plus version is the same S12 with a soft roller in the package. Same story with the Dyson V11 Torque Drive and Absolute. 

The Tineco has a LED display, it shows battery level, estimated cleaning time, how much the brush roller is tangled, suction power, malfunction, etc.

Know what's going on with your vacuum with the LED screen

Two detachable batteries work up to 50 minutes each, when using one, the other one can be charging. In Max mode, the Tineco gives you the whole 20 minutes of cleaning (10 minutes each battery). 

The Tineco Pure One S12 is perfect for big households

The HEPA filtration of the Tineco is fantastic. With other filters, you have to wash it with water and let it dry. Tineco's filter does not need water. To make it clean, wipe it out, and it's ready to go. 

So if the Dyson V11 detects carpets, the Tineco has the iLoop Dust Sensor. It recognizes big messes and boosts suction power to provide deeper cleaning. It is more efficient, the battery lasts longer since you don't have to set max power settings. If your hard floors are dirty, the Tineco will boost suction, and if your carpet is not that dirty, the Tineco will save battery energy by not giving extra power when it's not needed.

The Tineco identifies dirty zoned and provides deeper cleaning on those spots

Another thing we have not seen before - power suction control. The slider allows you to switch between Manual and Auto modes, with a capacitive touch bar, easily swipe up and down to adjust power. 

Adjust suction power whether you need to clean big messes or use the Tineco for quick cleanups

The Tineco Pure One S12 is powered by a 150 W motor which is equivalent to the one inside the Dyson V10 which was the strongest in the industry before the Dyson V11 had been released. 

With the "Plus" version, you get two cleaning heads equipped with LED lights that help to track dust and dirt in hard-to-reach places. Other models are equipped with one multi-tasker LED brush with stiff bristles. 

Track dirty spots with the LED lights

The Tineco is the first cordless vacuum cleaner with an app. The app allows you to receive real-time updates and keep track of your cleaning report, also easy to check malfunction, etc. 

The Tineco is one of a few cordless vacuum cleaners that have an app

The Tineco has a Dual charging wall mount that holds the vacuum and 3 additional accessories onboard.

The Tineco Pure One S12 is a powerful vacuum cleaner that works well where it is carpet or bare-flooring. By adjusting suction power, you save battery life if you don't need extra power when vacuuming bare flooring or thin carpets. 100 minutes of battery life makes the Tineco perfect for big homes. Smart sensing system knows where bigger messes are and provides deeper cleaning on those spots. 

Tineco or Dyson?

The Tineco Pure One S12 M Lite costs ~$450, the most-featured Tineco Pure One S12 Plus will cost you ~$700

The Dyson V11 Animal has a $600 price tag, the Absolute version is on sale for about $800

When the price if about the same, we have to look deeper at the advantages of each.

The Tineco has detachable batteries, longer runtime, dust detect which is, in our opinion, is more efficient than carpet recognition, power control, easy-to-clean HEPA filter, LED lights heads, and the app.

On the other hand, the Dyson V11 has a stronger motor and would be more suitable for homes with thick carpets. Also, the dustbin is bigger. 

Both are great at picking up pet hair, handling ultra fine debris even on high-pile carpets and perform well on bare flooring. 

If you are looking for a decent cordless vacuum to clean carpets - any of those two would be ideal to get.
