Gtech AirRam Vacuum

Until Dyson broke on the scene, vacuum cleaners were hardly a revolutionary or noteworthy device.  But, needless to say, Dyson changed all that and continues to innovate promising unparalleled suction, looks as well as agility.  Now, there is a new contender, though they’re smart – they’re not going head-to-head with the likes of Dyson.

The Gtech AirRam vacuum is a cordless dust sucker, which means it uses a Lithium-ion battery to get the job done.  The company says that it can clean two 4 bedroom homes on one charge – color us skeptical.  Nevertheless, there is a 4 bar LED indicator to keep you up to date on your remaining battery power and when you’re finished cleaning you can plug it into your computer’s USB port and download how much energy you consumed and your calories, yes calories, burned.  For clarity’s sake, Gtech is pushing this vacuum’s convenience and its green friendly engineering as it supposedly uses 20 times less juice than a comparable plug in vacuum of the same sucking power.

Sold?  There is more. The Gtech AirRam vacuum doesn’t use a bin or bags to collect dust.  Instead their proprietary suction system compresses dust and fluff into bales, which can be simply ejected into the trash.  And because the collection point is at the base of the vacuum, unlike its competitors, it uses power more efficiently.

So, we’ve used Hoover’s cordless vacuum.  While it works well, it still doesn’t compete with a traditional vacuum simply because the filtration system easily clogs and it lacks the same amount of power.  In other words we’re skeptical, but maybe we’ll see if we can get one for review.

The Gtech AirRam vacuum is available in the UK for £229 with VAT.

Grew up back East, got sick of the cold and headed West. Since I was small I have been pushing buttons - both electronic and human. With an insatiable need for tech I thought "why not start a blog focusing on technology, and use my dislikes and likes to post on gadgets."

    situation; we have created some nice procedures
    and we are looking to swap solutions with other folks, be sure to shoot me
    an e-mail if interested.

  2. This needs to be a robot – robots do much the same – how about when the handle is attached it gets switched from robot to manual – what’s their problem? They want to sell some of these and then an upgrade in 6 months?
