All these technical parameters closed in a classic housing of this vacuum cleaner make up three types of working modes:
ECO - the lowest power and suction power, selecting this mode will work for no longer than 60 minutes
STANDARD - medium power and suction power, in this mode you will work about 20-30 minutes (due to the increase in suction power working time will be shorter)
TURBO - is the strongest power and highest mode of this vacuum cleaner, which also translates into time and energy consumption, the battery will allow us unfortunately only to and here with a strong emphasis on up to 10 minutes (an average of 7-8min) of work at these settings.
Main nozzle with canister and battery, manual mode change, HEPA filter, cyclonic dust separation system and LEDs indicating battery status (and thanks to easy disassembly based on unscrewing the parts, cleaning becomes easy)
Soft brush/roll nozzle with easy disassembly system, which will be used to clean tile surfaces, wooden floors. The disassembled roller can even be washed under running water (just remember to dry it well before re-attaching the brush mechanism, the manufacturer recommends at least 24 hours)
Mattress brush to remove dust, mites from textiles both curtains and upholstery of sofas, armchairs, etc.
Extension tube - for places where you cannot use the upright vacuum cleaner with a longer extension tube
Long extension tube - wherever you can use the vacuum upright
Operating instructions and safety card
All these elements make up a sizeable set that will be useful in every house, apartment and office
Elements of the vacuum cleaner connect with each other in a very easy way to so-called ''click'' that is, take the nozzle of interest to us and connect with the main nozzle until you hear the characteristic click.
The cyclone filter can be easily removed from the container and cleaned with the push of a button.
Testing the Dreame Cordless Vacuum Cleaner XR
What should we pay attention to before using the device for the first time?
The first rule is to read the instruction manual included in the kit and familiarize yourself with it so that the use of the vacuum cleaner does not pose a danger.
The second cardinal rule is to charge the battery to full, so the main nozzle is connected to the charger using the power supply from the kit (the nozzle while charging must always be off) and charge to 100%.
Thirdly, we use each tip according to its purpose.
And fourth , we keep away from wet surfaces, spilled hazardous liquids such as flammable and chemical, glass and large items that can block the nozzle or tube. Vacuum cleaner turn on the button on the handle, release it and the device turns off.
When charging the next time, remember to leave the battery heated up after work to cool down for about 30 minutes and only then connect the device for charging. Also, under no circumstances should you use the vacuum cleaner while it is charging.
In order to achieve a reasonably reliable test, we set up a test area in exactly the same place as for other handheld cordless vacuum cleaners, choosing the most common type of surface: panels.
Test 1. We apply 50 grams of dried ground coffee to the test field, this will be the first test for the vacuum cleaner.
The vacuum cleaner picked up 46.50 grams from the 50 grams spilled. It should be added that the brush used and dedicated to flat surfaces only picks up dirt in one direction forward, so we have to remember to return to the back in the same line as we moved forward, or simply lift the vacuum up, otherwise we will pick up dirt on the way back.
Test 2. Here we apply 20 grams of flour to the test field to see how the device will handle this dust granularity, which mimics everyday dust very well.
The vacuum cleaner collected 18.09 grams of flour from the 20 grams spilled.
Cleaning the individual parts was not a big problem, except for the gasket in the closing lid. It is divided into two parts and dirt that gets there is very hard to remove.
During the tests we noticed that the working times predicted by the manufacturer for individual modes are slightly or almost no different from those given in the description.
In addition, we couldn't help but test the carpet with a specially dedicated brush. This is also attached in the form of a video. The test came out superbly, the vacuum did a great job and in addition, thanks to the roller made of rubber coating nothing stuck, which significantly shortened the cleaning process.
The process of charging time itself also does not deviate from the standard that we meet in the description and the test of the amount of energy needed to charge a fully discharged battery is as follows:
To sum up, the Cordless Vacuum Cleaner XR did a very good job of removing dirt of various weights from the surface of the panels, taking into account the parameters should fully perform on a daily basis in small and medium-sized apartments.
