The bigger dust capacity and floor head should make going cord-free more feasible for larger households.
Dyson has launched its biggest-capacity cordless vacuum cleaner yet in an attempt to extend the appeal of cordless cleaning to owners of larger homes, but can a big cordless model still make light work of vacuuming?
According to Dyson, the V11 Outsize can hold a litre more dust than its predecessor, the V11 Absolute, with increased suction power and a wider floor head to boot.
The V11 Outsize, which launched in the US last March, is available in the UK from today. It costs £650; about £50 more than the V11 Absolute.
Sales of cordless vacuums have surged in recent years, with consumers embracing the convenience of cord-free cleaning. But their limited battery life and reduced dust capacity – the average dust capacity of a cordless vacuum is 0.7 litres, compared with 2.3 litres for corded vacuum – makes them a trickier sell for those with more floorspace to cover.
