Is your Dyson rechargeable V8 vacuum battery not holding the charge it used to? Is your Dyson vacuum dying much sooner than it was between charges? This happened to me after a year of owning the Dyson V8 Absolute rechargeable vacuum.
There are 2 speeds on the Dyson V8 vacuum, which is standard and high power. I always vacuum carpet on high power, as it gets up all the dust and dog hair on that setting. With that setting, the Dyson V8 Absolute lasts about 7-10 minutes. I was able to vacuum the living room and dining room on that setting before a recharge.
I noticed 2 weeks ago the Dyson battery lasts about 2 minutes or less on a full charge. Something was wrong and it was the battery, losing its charge.
I ordered a 3rd party battery from Amazon for the Dyson V8 Absolute and easily installed it yesterday. It works better than the Dyson battery! The Dyson V8 battery has 2500 mAh battery, while the 3rd party battery has a 3800 mAh, which means it lasts longer!
Does the new Dyson battery last longer? YES IT DOES! I was able to vacuum the entire house on one charge minus one of the bedrooms. This includes all rooms, kitchen, bathrooms, hallways, etc. I LOVE THIS BATTERY and highly recommend it!
The battery is easy to install, comes with a small screwdriver, 3 screws, and 2 replacement air filters for your Dyson vacuum. I used the same screws already in my Dyson V8 Absolute vacuum and had no issues. Total installation took about 5 minutes. You will need to remove the dirt catch container from the vacuum to replace the battery, which is easy to do. If you have any questions, ask.
This battery is much less expensive and lasts much longer than the battery Dyson vacuums come with.
On a side note, we have always had your standard vacuums for the house, even by the big name brands. Vacuums had to be replaced every couple years. I always thought of trying the Dyson vacuums but never wanted to spend that kind of money until last year. I was already spending about $200 every 2 years roughly on a vacuum, so why not spend $150 more and see if Dyson is up to the hype.
I will never have anything other than a Dyson! I can’t believe the amount of dirt and hair collected by these powerful vacuums! Dyson is by far the best vacuum brand I have ever used and will never use anything else. They’re made incredibly well and completely blow away the competition. If you get one of these vacuums, you’ll see what I mean when emptying the container. Each vacuum session every few days results in a solid mass dust bunny the size of a softball, filled with mass hair and dirt.
I highly recommend Dyson vacuums!
