The only handheld that doesn't lose suction.
'Dyson is all about developing new and better technology - and now Dyson's engineers have applied these principles to handhelds. Dyson Root 6 is the only handheld vacuum with powerful constant suction.' James Dyson. Other cordless handheld vacuums rely on filters to trap the dirt. These start to clog as soon as you start to pick up dust, causing loss of suction. A Dyson works differently - the dirt is spun from the air into the bin so the suction stays constant.

Frustrating, Annoyiing, Disapointing, Sent Back
How Dyson could have put their name to this product is beyond me. Other reviewers are correct in saying all you get is 6 minutes before you have to recharge. The suction power is also sub-standard and other than the colouring and nice look it has nothing in common with its powerful upright and cylinder cousins. The only good thing about it is I could time my love making by it. Honestly, though DO NOT BUY - mine is on its way back.
It's not 'bad'
We purchased this little dyson for times when you have irritatingly small jobs that you need a hoover for, but don't feel like lugging the large hoover in and out of the cupboard.
I have twin girls, so you can imagine the mess!
If you are looking for a vacuum cleaner, and expecting the productivity of the larger corded types, then forget this little one. However, if like me, you need it for cleaning up the crumbs and clearing day to day mess, like kitchen worktops after cutting bread etc, then this little one is perfect.
I think that many reviews I have read are from people who wanted a miniature dyson, which was pretty much the same as their large one, but in my opinion, dyson couldn't really have done much more when designing it. It is light (weighs less than 3lbs), it looks nice, it's not huge, so it'll fit in your kitchen cupboard, and it has an easy empty function which is great, one click of a button and the dust is in the bin with no mess.
Yes the battery is a bit pants, but if they had made it with a bigger battery, you would never have been able to pick the thing up! It would have made it extremely heavy and cumbersome. And after all, it was never intended to be a full sized vacuum, it's a glorified dustbuster, so you can't really complain. Also I do believe that with each subsequent charge, my dyson is eeking a little more power into the battery each time, bit like when you get a new mobile, they tell you it won't get up to full capacity until you've charged and fully discharged it a few times.
I can do the stairs and around the edges of my hall and landing thoroughly before it runs out. Today for example I got about 8 minutes out of it, which was plenty for me to do those two jobs. It's IDEAL for the stairs in fact because I almost break my neck every time I try to hoover them lugging my cylinder dyson up and down them, teetering precariously on each step!
All in all I am not too disappointed with my little dyson. I think the price could be a tad cheaper - say RRP of £.. instead of over £.., but when you think of the technology you're buying, it's not really so bad.
Terrible battery life - Do not buy
I purchased the Dyson DC16 for cleaning my car interior
Unfortunately the battery lasts just a few minutes before requiring a 3 hour charge.
Buy this product for it's looks only you wont be doing much cleaning with it!
