Bosch Athlet With Accessory Kit BCH625KTGB Upright Vacuum Cleaner - White

Power and performance without the cord! The BCH625KTGB Athlet upright vacuum cleaner is cordless, giving you the freedom to vacuum all over your home without interruption! You won’t compromise on performance thanks to the highly efficient bagless technology and HighPower AllFloor brush, making it suitable for both carpets and hard floors. It’s super light at just 3kg and an extra long 60 minute run time after a short 6 hour charge. The accessory kit can be attached to the base of the vacuum cleaner and includes a shoulder strap, flexible hose, as well as upholstery and crevice nozzles. You can make good use of the tools to cleaning your sofas, stairs, underneath furniture and even in your car. An LED lets you know when the filter needs to be cleaned and, at 72dB, it’s really quiet when in operation.

Pros: Easy to use, Good build quality, Quiet, looks good

Cons: Expensive

"This was our first upright, cordless and bag less vacuum cleaner and it didn't disappoint.

It looks ultra modern and hides away nicely when not in use.

The appliance itself is very lightweight making it easy to manoeuvre around tight spaces, in corners and up/ down stairs too... All the typical hard to reach places.

The 3 power setting are an excellent tool, we found that the battery life was affected when constantly operating in 'Turbo Mode' (which the manufacturer had said would happen anyway), we have pet and as such the fur was difficult to remove when in power level 1 or 2 so we don't feel that it would be suitable for a fully carpeted household that has pets.

The accessories tools are also very good and the multi floor cleaning system allows seamless cleaning between carpets and hard floor surfaces without the need to activate switches or dials...

Overall an excellent product but definitely for households that don't have a lot of pets, or don't mind having to charge the Hoover constantly to operate it in turbo mode."

"Pocket-size power"

Pros: Easy to use, Good build quality, Quiet, looks good, lightweight

Cons: Expensive, pointless tools

"Bought this cordless vac after best buy Which? review and after struggling with my old corded vac up and down the stairs. With a house full of pets my carpets need a frequent clean up but plugging and unplugging and lugging round a heavy vac every day was getting tiresome. This is perfect for those everyday clean ups. The turbo setting seems to deal with all that unwanted pet hair clinging furiously to the carpet and does almost as good a job as my corded version. I wouldn't dispense with the corded vac altogether it's useful for those really deep cleans and to be frank I think the tools on this model (apparently you can buy a model without the upholstery etc tools) are a bit pointless and tricky to handle, and I stick to my corded vac for those tasks. Really lightweight and goes up and down the stairs like a dream and the longer life battery than some other makes definitely gives you the power to do a pretty thorough all round the house clean (great for hard floors too), especially if you stick to the turbo clean option for just carpeted areas. Great little gadget and quieter than my monster vac."

"easy cleaning"

Pros: Easy to use, Good build quality, Quiet, looks good

Cons: Expensive

"This vacuum may be a bit pricey but it's worth the money.

Stairs are a breeze to do, no balancing or dragging a big vacuum around.

It's quiet, lightweight and has enough suction to cope with my dogs hair ( she is in the Olympic moulting team).

All in all I can't really find a fault with it."

"Fantastic vacuum cleaner!"

Pros: Value for money, Easy to use, Good build quality, Quiet, looks good, effective, quick charging

Cons: none

"What a fantastic vacuum cleaner! We wanted an easily accessible cordless vacuum cleaner to help to cope with 3 moulting dogs, 4 shedding cats and 3 seed-spitting parrots. The idea was that we would use the Athlet for day to day vacuuming and get the mains cleaner out maybe once a week to give everything a thorough clean. As it turns out, the mains cleaner hasn't seen the light of day since the Athlet appeared!

A single 3 hour charge is more than sufficient for us to vacuum our modest 3 bed home with power to spare. For most cleaning, the low power setting is more than enough but the medium and turbo settings remove pet hair just as effectively as mains cleaners. The higher power settings will reduce your charge pretty quickly and is relatively noisy. The brush head transitions easily from carpet to tiles and vice-versa and the machine lays flat to allow easy vacuuming under furniture. It steers well too!

The dust collector has an indicator to tell you when it needs emptying and is easily removed and replaced. The rotating brush head is also easy to remove and clean.

The accessories are of a high quality and are easy to fit and remove. The Athlet can be carried over the shoulder using a detachable strap which some people may find a little cumbersome and the hose would benefit from a swivel feature as I found it had a tendency to want to kink. These are pretty minor quibbles though and really don't detract from what is a very powerful, effective and stylish machine?"

Cons: Expensive

"Needed a new vacuum that was not heavy and cumbersome but had all the power of a standard Hoover. Saw the advert for this and decided to go for it. It does everything that is advertised. My best purchase this year."
