Vax Air Cordless Switch H85-AC21-B


The Switch is the smallest model in Vax's growing and ever popular Air Cordless range. This is more of a handstick cleaner for odd jobs rather than whole house cleans, and offers the versatility of both upright cleaning and, by unclipping the main...

Cordless convenience ; Upright and handheld modes ; Light and easy to use ; Effective brush bar

Low suction power ; Poor edge cleaning ; Small and messy to empty bin ; Slow to charge

Vax Air Cordless U86-AL-B


An effective cordless upright that comes with two batteries

Excellent upright cleaning ; Two batteries and charger included ; Cordless convenience ; Long run time

Short hose reach ; Small bin capacity ; Poor edge cleaning

Clearly Vax has designed this model to be a proper alternative to a corded cleaner, not just a ‘second’ cleaner for lighter duties, and it sounds like that too. Creating around 87dB of noise at head height above the cleaner when vacuuming carpets, the...

Vax Air Cordless review


The future of cleaning, some say, is robot vacuum cleaners. But in the present and in our experience those automated robotic vacuums have still got a long way to go for the perfect clean. Until then it's all about perfecting what we do manually, which...

Lightweight, cord-free, spare battery, long life, powerful, multi-floor

Awkward wand extension with too few heads

Vax has created a near perfect cordless vacuum cleaner in its Air Cordless. It's light, easy to manoeuvre, has a long life per charge (plus two batteries) and large storage capacity with easy emptying feature. Our main moan is the lack of cleaning...

Vax Air Cordless review


A distinctly average cordless upright vacuum, the Vax Air Cordless is better than its cheaper rivals but not by much

It’s hardly cheap at £280, so while it undercuts Dyson’s models, it’s just as expensive as many mains-powered vacuums. If an upright vacuum is a must, a wired model makes more sense; it will do a better job with less effort, and you don’t have to worry...

Vax Air Cordless DUO U86-AL-B review

  (Rating Hidden)

Vax calls the Air Cordless Duo U86-AL-B a 'full-size cordless cleaner', supposedly combining the convenience of a cordless vacuum and the cleaning ability of an upright. It makes some ambitious claims about suction, and Vax also says it's incredibly...

Vax Air Cordless Switch


A cordless vacuum means no restrictions on distance from the power plug; it also has two LEDs on the shoe so no excuse for not getting into those dark corners in fact with its smaller overall shoe size it gets into places most cannot penetrate.

Certainly not a quiet unit, this hard floor or carpet cleaner is at best loud and with the brushes going it can drown out most other things. It is 112cm tall, 10cm deep at the base and 25cm wide at the brush bar. The only instructions were printed on...

Review: VAX Air Cordless


What is it? What we are looking at is what will probably be the newest trend in vacuum cleaners. VAX are not the first one, and they won't be the[...]

Home items are particularly important to me as they hardly get mentioned as exciting or ground breaking, which I personally find harsh and a bit unfair. Guess the best items are those that work so well that you tend to forget about them. The VAX Air...

Vax Air Cordless U86-AL-B


Lightweight and very maneuverable, great battery life and auction.

Handle feels a bit flimsy, but has a 6 year warranty.

Vax H85AC21BB


The light at the front is especially good on wooden floors as it highlights crumbs.

Not so easy to empty as dirt collects in the crevices.
