Update, May 8: Dyson has launched the V11 Absolute in Singapore - here's our review.
Shortly after its March 20 launch event in New York City, the Dyson V11 cord-free vacuum is now available for purchase on the Dyson U.S. online store.
The successor to the Dyson V10, the V11’s tentpole feature is a Dynamic Load Sensor technology that’s able to intelligently control the motor position 360 times a second. Working in tandem with a new high torque cleaner head, in Auto mode, the vacuum is able to detect brush bar resistance and automatically adjust the motor speed as you move from hard floors to carpets (and vice versa). There’s also a Boost mode and an Eco mode if you need more suction power or want to get more run time from the battery.
Instead of a battery indicator, the V11 now comes with an LCD screen. Located at the top of the stick (facing you when you pick up the vacuum), this screen shows you the mode you’re in, a timer that tells you to the second how much battery power is left, and even maintenance alerts. According to Dyson, the battery in the V11 is bigger and better than the one used in the V10; along with an improved motor, the V11 delivers 20% more suction power than the V10.
In the U.S., the V11 is available in two variants: the V11 Animal and V11 Torque Drive, priced at US$600 and US$700 respectively. It’s unclear at the moment when Dyson would be selling the V11 in Singapore - I’ll update this article when I hear more.
