Product Overview

Cleans all those hard to reach places. You won’t have to struggle when cleaning awkward areas anymore as the lightweight Vax U85-ACLG-B cordless vacuum has a cylinder that lifts out. This makes stairs and upholstery a doddle to clean. Its cordless design means you can move in and out of your home with ease. You get two powerful LithiumLife batteries with your vacuum, each running for a lengthy 25 minutes each. This is more than enough time to clean an average sized house when you haven’t got any cables holding you back. And, the innovative WindTunnel3 technology means you won’t lose suction over hard floors or carpets.

Five Star Product

Once my new cleaner arrived I eagerly opened the box and read the easy start up guide that came with the product. This told me everything I needed to know and the assembly was both minimal and easy. I was most impressed with the way the Battery charger could be wall mounted if desired and the product came with a spare battery included. The fact that the battery charger cuts out when the battery is fully charged and can be left in the charger is a bonus and should you ever wish to check how much charge is left in a battery you can do so at the press of a button. The 2 batteries give an average 50 minutes of run time in total so more than enough to clean the entire house and I found them very easy to attach to both the cleaner and to the charger. The control buttons on this cleaner are perfectly located and easy to use; simply power on, and go on hard surfaces or power on and brush roll on carpet. There is even a boost button should you need it to give extra cleaning power though this does of course use more battery power so remember to switch it off when not needed. The suction on this machine is second to none and I was amazed how well it coped with pet hairs and sand as I live by the beach and half of it always ends up in the carpet. Having an upright cleaner that could be stored away in a small space was important and this one really does fit the bill. If need be the handle can even be unclipped to reduce the height for storage. The hose is very flexible and clips neatly onto the cleaner ready for use. To attach a crevice tool or brush simply unclip the cylinder from the main unit, lift out the hose and push on the tool. There is space for one tool on board the cleaner so I usually leave the one I use the most on board. In all fairness I cannot see how it would be possible to make room for more tools on board. The crevice tool is very cleverly designed in so much as it is crevice tool and brush in one; the brush simply slides away when not needed. The cleaner also comes with another brush attachment which is ideal for soft furnishings, tops of doors and other hard to reach places. When using on stairs or with the extension in high places the cylinder should be removed from the main unit for safety and ease of use. The cleaner was easy to empty; simply remove from the cleaner and holding over a bin press the release button. This empties the dirt from the bottom. The filter is also easily accessible and should be washed under warm running water. A spare filter would be a welcome addition to the product as you would need to purchase one separately should you wish to use the product during the recommended 24 hours drying time. All in all this is an excellent cleaner and at this moment in time I have seen nothing else on the market which matches it both for its numerous features and performance. Add to that the 6 year manufacturers guarantee and this product stands , as far as I am concerned head and shoulders above the rest. In summary this is a Full size cleaner which has a medium sized foot print, not as cumbersome as many and with excellent cleaning power. It is light in weight easy to manoeuvre and really fits my lifestyle. Thank you Vax for such a great product.

Vax lift cordless

Nearly as good as a standard corded vac. The only real drawback is it will block with any debri bigger than a 5p piece.

A little average

I was really excited to get my new Vax as I was always completely happy with my previous Vax Air. However the suction is no where near as good as my previous model, even with the boost (maybe because it's cordless I don't know?) But quite average and a little disappointing to be honest. I need good suction to accommodate my busy household. Although the flexibility is great, it's light and easy to move around and with two batteries it's always ready to use.


For a cordless vacuum this does what it says on the tin

Fab Hoover

Wow! What a product! So very different to my old upright! Love the fact that I can do the whole house without having to plug it in as I go. So lightweight and easy to use. I was concerned that the suction might not be as powerful as my current one but I am pleasantly surprised! My carpets and floors are sooo much cleaner! Very impressed with the fact you get two batteries! Highly recommended

Good product

Looks stylish, I would say slightly on the heavy side compared to the vax air, which we had before but we didn't like the small hose. It is manoeuvrable and has the lift off option for those hard to reach places. I don't rate the suction on the hose but it does pick up ok, but compared to when it's standing the suction is nowhere as good. 2 batteries so that helps, we normally get about 3 whole house hoovers before we need to change the battery. It was ideal for hoovering the car out as it has a light on it so it lit up under my car seats. Price better than anywhere else to purchase it but would I buy again?... maybe not due to the hose suction but I would purchase again If it was cheaper.
