Cleans. And cleans. For up to 40 minutes.¹
A redesigned nickel-cobalt-aluminium battery provides up to 40 minutes of fade-free suction.¹ For powerful, whole-home cleaning.
Lightweight and versatile, with up to 40 minutes of fade-free suction¹, for whole-home cleaning. Powered by the Dyson digital motor V8 and engineered to pick up ground-in dirt and fine dust from hard floors and carpets. Quickly transforms to a handheld vacuum, to clean all around your home and car.

Perfectly balanced, to reach up high.
With the motor in the handle, the Dyson V8 stick vacuum uses Arhcimedes’ principle of the lever to make it easy to left and clean high places.

Drives dirt from carpets.
The direct-drive cleaner head’s motor pushes stiff nylon bristles into carpets to capture deep down dirt.
Power up. Noise down. Redesigned battery chemistry. Discover the technology behind the Dyson V8 vacuum.
The Dyson digital motor V8.
Dyson pulses switch the polarity of neodymium magnets, to spin the patented Dyson digital motor V8 at up to 110,000 rpm – five times faster than a Formula One car engine. Producing up to 115 Air Watts, it generates powerful suction on carpets and hard floors.
Patented 2 Tier Radial cyclones.
15 small cyclones each generate powerful g-forces to fling dust into the bin. The post-motor filter is 1.5m of ePTFE porous membrane sandwiched between layers of PE/PET, folded 158 times to fit in a compact space. It’s optimised to provide filtration with minimal pressure consumption, for more suction. So it captures microscopic dirt particles as small as 0.3 microns – almost 100 times smaller than the width of a human hair.
Redesigned battery chemistry.
The six-cell lithium-ion battery has been engineered with nickel-cobalt-aluminium (NCA) chemistry. The NCA cathode offers high power capability, with the ability to store a high charge per unit volume and to discharge this energy quickly. Which gives the Dyson V8 vacuum up to 40 minutes of fade free power¹ – double the run time of its predecessor.
