A Review Of The Vax Air Cordless Switch Upright Vacuum Cleaner

2-in-1 Cordless Lightweight Vax 

With a busy family in and out of the house all day long vacuuming is something I do everyday, sometimes two to three times a day! Finding the right machine to do the job is imperative for me, it needs to be easy to use, powerful and light. I have an ulterior motive for it being really light actually as this means that both the kids can help out around the house by adding vacuuming to the chores list! When I had the opportunity to try out the 2-in1 cordless vacuum from Vax I was thrilled to try it out as it had all the features I was looking for to keep the house looking clean and dust free, I just wasn’t prepared just how useful it would be.

What I thought Of The Vax Air

Once I received the Vax Air and unpacked it I was amazed at just how light it is, at only 3.4 kg it is really easy to carry around the house and makes the whole chore so much easier. My first thoughts were how perfect this would have been for my gran as she struggled with heavy and cumbersome vacuum cleaners and this would have been just right for her. I would highly recommend it to anyone who is looking for a powerful vacuum without having a heavy machine to carry around and with no cord either it’s even more versatile.
Assembling the machine once out the packaging is easy to do and only takes a few minutes and once the battery is charged it is ready to use. The vacuum is very easy to manoeuvre around furniture and rooms and as you can use both on hard floors and carpeted floors it makes the process quick and efficient.  The ability to take the vacuum from room to room easily with no cords to worry about is a huge advantage of this machine, it speeds up the while process and as it’s so light it’s no problem to carry up and down the stairs. 
We have spiral carpeted stairs in our house and it’s always the same when I clean with my usual vacuum cleaner the cord isn’t long enough for me to do the whole staircase, so I have to vacuum half (carrying the heavy vacuum cleaner in one hand) and then change the plug socket so the cord can reach to do the rest of the stairs from the top. It’s tricky and I don’t usually get the results I want. The difference with the Vax Air is that I can either use the main vacuum easily (carrying it up the stairs is easy as it’s so light) or I can opt to take the handheld smaller vacuum out and use. It may seem like a small change but it is so much simpler and as both the units are also very powerful every bit of dirt and dust is gone. 
Another valuable feature of the Vax Air is that it is simple to manoeuvre around the house, it reclines really low so you can get underneath furniture easily and the LED lights give good visibility to reach every bit of dust and dirt. The narrow frame of the vacuum means it’s ideal to store in a small cupboard and as it’s lightweight it makes it very easy to take out and put away as many times as you need to during the day. As it’s a cordless unit we have found so many uses around the house that were previously restricted with our other vacuum cleaner which has a cord, cleaning the car easily being one of the benefits. Just make sure the battery is fully charged and you can use the handheld unit to keep the car looking clean.
A very useable and customer friendly product from Vax that would appeal to any family to keep their household looking clean and tidy. I have already recommended the Vax Air to my mum as she was looking for a vacuum that was more lightweight than the unit she already has, and the fact it is powerful with the duel use of the handheld unit is a huge draw. A real timesaver in the battle to keep the house clean and for me a great addition to our household with the added benefit that both the kids find it really easy to use.

The Vax Air is available now from the Vax website at £179.99

    Wow, shocked you have to vacuum 2-3 times a day! I shouldn't complain then when I do it once a week lol 🙂 I love Vax products, always wonderful and this one sounds nice, especially since it's light weight <3

    Great review – My mum used to have a Vax, but never had one myself.

    I like the idea of a cordless for the stairs etc – especially with having a dog – but I'm put off by having to charge them. My sister-in-law has a Dyson stick one and it only gives you 15 mins or so after a full charge!

    This looks like the vac I have been looking for!

  8. October 8, 2015 / 1:11 pm

    I really need a good hoover. This one sounds very nice. Cordless means less problems for me so this would be very handy indeed.

    My husband would love this, he has a hoover on his christmas list….and an ironing board 😀 x

  13. October 14, 2015 / 8:08 pm

    This looks pretty impressive! I wish I had your love of vacuuming though! I have wooden floors and tiles downstairs and carpet upstairs and I hate having to cart the Hoover up and down as its really heavy!

  14. October 18, 2015 / 2:01 pm

    this looks really good – I have only ever bought Dysons in the past.

  15. October 19, 2015 / 11:10 am

    I have been looking into purchasing a cordless vaccuum cleaner for a while now and just find it so difficult to choose! I need something lightweight, super efficient and as sad as I am, I want it to look good too! Very impressed with your review of this one, so might have to see if I can see one over the weekend in our local electrical superstore!

  19. October 20, 2015 / 12:11 pm

  20. October 20, 2015 / 5:04 pm

    Brilliant! I have a carpet shampooer and always works well. This looks fab too.
