Which Dyson V11 should you choose?

Cleaning your home just got a whole lot easier…

03 Mar 2021

If you’re in the market for a new vacuum cleaner, or your current one just isn’t up to the job any more, Dyson might have the answer to your prayers.

The new V11 Absolute cordless vacuum has the most powerful suction of any cord-free vacuum*, so it can take care of pretty much any cleaning job around your home.

But there isn't just one V11. In fact there are a whole range that have all kinds of handy features to take on pretty much any job. The only question is....


What's your perfect V11?

For pet owners....Animal

Pets bring us a lot of joy, but they also leave a lot of hair behind in the process. The V11 Animal is an ideal choice for pet owners, as it helps you to clear all those unwanted stray pet hairs from your home.

For the big jobs...Outsize

Maybe you have a big house, or you're cleaning a venue with a lot of floor. You'll want the Outsize. Its full-sized bin is 150% bigger than other V11 models with a 25% wider cleaning head. So you won't have to worry about emptying the bin all the time. And when you do, you won't need to touch the dirt at all with the hygienic 'point and shoot' system. 1.9 litre bin.

And not only do you get that 60 minutes battery, the Outsize also gives you the option of clipping on a spare battery...so you get even more power!


For hard floors...Absolute

If you've got a house full of hardfloors, this might be the one for you. While it's true that all models can take on hardfloors, the Absolute comes with a soft roller attachment which is perfect for the job.


For a great all-rounder...Torque

And if you live in a place with a mixture of hard floors and carpet plus everything in between, the Torque can take it all on.


What do they all have?

Whichever model you choose, you'll be delighted with it. That's because all V11 models have some key things in common...


Intelligent power optimisation

The Dyson V11s have smart suction adjustment, which knows what type of surface you're cleaning and adjusts the power automatically to suit. This means you get better cleaning performance while maximising the battery life.

New LCD screen

Buy any of these models and you'll get the LCD sceen which intelligently reports performance back to you in real time. The screen displays the selected power mode, remaining run time, filter maintenance reminders and blockage reports.

This way you will know exactly how much longer you get on your clean before it needs a re-charge. The days of playing chicken with your cordless vacuum's battery are now over.


Super long life battery

Combined with the Dynamic Load Sensor, the battery is able to soldier on for up to 60 minutes – and the best part is, you get no loss of suction as the battery drains.

Four-stage filtration system

The V11s capture microscopic particles and allergens and passed them through its four-stage filtration system to trap 99.97% of microscopic particles. All it blows out is clean air.


Extra large bin

With a 40% bigger container than Dyson's own V8 model, you won't have to empty this one anywhere as much. It also has an easy ‘point and shoot’ system for emptying, so you don’t need to worry about getting your hands dirty.

Dyson V11 Absolute


Easily switches to a handheld

The V11 Absolute also transforms easily into a handheld vacuum, making it perfect for all awkward-to-reach spots around your home, not to mention great for cleaning the car.

*Suction tested to EN 60312-1 CL 5.8 and 5.9 at the hose/wand, loaded to bin full, tested in boost mode...
