We have three children and a cat. Our house gets very messy, very quickly! To deal with the mess we need a vacuum that can keep up.
We've recently tried out the G Tech AirRam K9. The G Tech AirRam K9 is suitable for all pets and gives you high performance cleaning without a cord, perfect to quickly pull out and clean up any mess. It is strengthened by aluminium components to resist wear and tear caused by pet hair. Pet odours can also make ordinary vacuum cleaners smell, the AirRam K9 has refillable floral scented tabs that slot into the filter and deliver a clean scent every time you hoover. I love the scent feature and Mark even commented on the smell. Its lovely to have the scent left over after you've used the vacuum.
As the AirRam K9 has no cord you can easily clean all around your home without a snagging cord and no need to unplug every time you change rooms. It can also change from carpet to hard floors without any need for a setting change making it quicker to use. It weighs just 3.5kg and is super portable, i know i hate carrying heavy vacuums up and down the stairs. The size and compactness is one of the main things i love about the AirRam K9. It is easy to store and great to bring out to clean up messes throughout the day, which very often happens with three children and a pet. It is also very easy to adjust the handle, simply press the black button and the handle is made bigger.
The power comes from a 22V Lithium-ion battery that is surprisingly quiet and powerful. After a 4-hour charge you can clean for up to 40 minutes. A 1-hour charge gives you a short burst of additional run time. When i first learnt the times i thought i would be charging the battery really often but i find that just charging once a week i can use the vacuum every day for some quick cleaning then once a week for a more thorough clean. You can easily see how much power is left but a 4-stage LED display. The battery can be charged while still in the vacuum or can be taken out.
The AirRam K9 is really easy to empty. The dirt is compressed into a capsule in the head of the vacuum. You simply pop the compartment out, open it and the dirt falls into the bin, you then slide the ejector arm to clear out the remaining dirt.
The vacuum also has a light on the front which is handy for seeing the dirt before you hoover it up. A great little feature that is useful for under beds/tables.
Overall we love the G Tech AirRam K9, it worked really well and does the job well, it copes well with pet hair and any mess that the children make. It is a little tricky to get into corners and edges as there isn't a nozzle but I love how lightweight and compact it is.
Have you tried a cordless vacuum?
