The Dyson V6 range of handheld cordless vacuum cleaners was introduced in the Spring of 2015 as an improvement of the previous “DC” series of cordless vacuums.
All V6 models feature the same digital “V6” motor which spins up to a very powerful 110,000 rpm resulting in a very decent suction for a cordless vacuum cleaner. You’ll get around 20 minutes usage from a single charge and if you want higher suctions levels, a “boost” mode can be run for up to 6 minutes.
A neat touch on the Dyson V6 is the motorised cleaning head, although using this will slightly reduce your running time. Other features include easy conversion to a handheld vacuum cleaner and a neat docking station that also holds the tools.
Cannot decide between the Dyson V6 Absolute vs Animal models? The main difference between the models is the tools provided and how you attend to use, for example, hard floor cleaning as well as carpets or for cleaning pet hairs. Our guide below highlights and compares the differences between the best selling Dyson V6 cordless vacuum models.
Although more expensive, it is also worth checking out the latest Dyson V8 cordless vacuum cleaners.

Dyson V6 cordless reviews
Dyson V6 Absolute review
If you are looking for a lightweight, easy to use vacuum, the Dyson v6 Absolute Cordless Vacuum Cleaner may be the perfect fit for you. Weighing in at 2.3 kg, this unit is small enough for users to carry from room to room with ease.
It is designed for use on both hardwood floors and carpets, so you are not limited with what areas of your home you can clean. The vacuum is powered by Dyson’s digital “V6” motor that can run for up to 20 minutes.
One added plus to purchasing this vacuum is the max power mode that increases the amount of suction for up to 6 minutes, so you can get some extra help for those areas where dirt is deeply embedded in the carpet. Overall, this vacuum is powerful, easy to use and could help you tackle those tough cleaning jobs in your home.
Dyson V6 Animal review
If you are searching for a powerful, easy to use cordless vacuum the you may want to consider the Dyson V6 Animal Cordless Vacuum. This lightweight vacuum weighs 4.2 kg and being cordless making it easy to manoeuvre during use. This model also comes with an head attachment specifically designed for pet hair.
With a powerful 100 watts of suction power and cyclone technology, this vacuum is able to quickly clear away dirt on both carpet and hardwood floors all over you home. It runs for about twenty minutes on a single charge so is ideal for a quick blast around the house or a more deep clean of 1 or 2 rooms.
When it comes to the surfaces that need extra cleaning due to the amount of dirt that is embedded, you can switch to max mode and increase the amount of suction for around 6 minutes.
Dyson V6 Fluffy review
The Dyson V6 Fluffy Cordless Vacuum Cleaner is lightweight, powerful and very easy to use. The powerful Dyson Digital V6 Motor allows users to clean hardwood floors, ceilings and carpets for up to 20 minutes without having to fuss with cords or plugging and unplugging the vacuum as they move through the home.
The main difference with the V6 Fluffy compared to other V6 models is that it includes an additional “soft” head attachment for cleaning hard floor surfaces. Other V6 models have a more traditional “brush” type cleaning head.
As with other V6 models, there is also a max power mode that increases the amount of suction so you can use on those tough areas where dirt may seem impossible to lift.
