Tineco Pure One S12 Review

Each model is powered by a 150 W motor. It is one of the most powerful motors in the industry. 

The new models have a dust detect. When the Tineco recognizes a big amount of dust, it boosts up suction power providing deeper cleaning on those spots. 

Tineco is known by its HEPA filter, it does not need to be washed with water. Also, it is equipped with two detachable batteries, one of which can be used while the other one is charging. With two batteries, you get longer cleaning, which makes the Tineco perfect for bigger homes. 

HEPA filtration makes the Tineco ideal for allergy and asthma sufferers 

Tineco is generous on accessories in the box. Each of the Tineco vacuums has lots of extra tools for different cleaning needs and a wall-mounted charging dock with 3 accessories onboard for easy storage.

These are similar vacuums powered by the same motor. They both have the same specifications except for a few things: the M version has a Bluetooth speaker and also a smart wi-fi camera. With the speaker, you can enjoy music or talk on the phone while cleaning (the vacuum noise is controlled by smart optimization). The camera shows what is going on in some hard-to-reach places like high-placed shelves, etc. Both devices work with the Tineco app.

The screen lets you know about dust amount, battery level, suction power, malfunction, etc. Enable you to see every detail on the digital display, cleaning status is clear at a glance.

The Tineco Pure One S12 Plus is suitable for both: bare floor and carpet

The Pure One S12 has the iLoop Dust Sensor. It detects the biggest amount of dust providing deeper cleaning by boosting suction to max level. 

The filter is the same, can be cleaned without water. You don't have to interrupt cleaning to let the filter dry. 

One of the newest features of the Tineco Pure One S12 is a power suction control. The control allows switching between Auto and Manual mode and adjusting power depending on your needs by swiping up and down. 

The Tineco is the first cordless vacuum cleaner that has an app that aware you of everything that's going on. 

The Tineco can be stored on a wall with 3 accessories on board. In the box with the Tineco Pure One S12 Plus, you will find two cleaning heads with LED lights. One with stiff bristles is perfect for carpet cleaning, the other one, soft roller head, is suitable for bare flooring. The one for carpet is also great on bare flooring, only might struggle a bit with bigger debris. On carpet, the bristled head works flawlessly. 

The vacuum is powered by a 150 W motor that is 6 times than an ordinary DC motor cordless vacuum cleaner. The Tineco Pure One S12 is one of the most powerful cordless vacuum cleaners, it provides deep cleaning even on high-pile carpets. 

Tineco PURE ONE S12 PLUS Tests & Cleaning Performance

Review made by Vacuum Wars

In the end

Tineco did a great job producing the newest models. These are one of the most powerful cordless vacuum cleaners that can detect dust, have an LED display, support Wi-Fi, equipped with a smart camera, and have the longest-lasting batteries in the industry.

The Tineco PURE ONE S12 is a competitor of the newest Dyson V10 and V11.

Yes, the Tineco S12 might be pricey but so does the Dyson V10 or Dyson V11, these are the high-premium products with great cleaning performance with no other competitors on the market.

The Tineco is equipped with many new smart features that are new to the market, and this is why the vacuum is so great.
