Vax gets cordless!

Britain’s leading floorcare brand* is launching a new range of convenient cordless vacuums that promise to change the way you clean your home forever.

Vax has created a family of LithiumLifeTM powered cordless vacuums designed to bring the convenience of cord-free cleaning to every room in your home - so there’s no more plugging and unplugging or getting tangled in the cord.

Extending Vax’s existing cordless range, the Air Cordless Lift, Air Cordless Switch and Floormate Cordless provide a mobile solution for every cleaning challenge. Like the original full size Air Cordless upright, these new models use Vax’s transferable LithiumLifeTM battery technology to deliver powerful, long lasting suction that offers the ultimate in cord-free convenience.

At the top of the range, the Air Cordless Lift is a full size upright vacuum with up to 50 minutes** runtime, making it the only vacuum cleaner you’ll ever need. If you struggle to use a conventional upright vacuum on your stairs this model’s new ‘Lift-out’ design provides the ideal solution, as it seamlessly transforms into a portable cylinder vacuum at the push of a button. Once you’ve used the upright on your carpets and hard floors, simply lift off the lightweight detachable cylinder to quickly clean your stairs, furniture and upholstery. The Air Cordless Lift’s cyclonic technology delivers constant powerful suction*** while WindTunnel3 helps remove both surface debris and embedded dirt using three channels of suction. A 6 year guarantee gives you total peace of mind.

The Air Cordless Switch offers amazing versatility and adaptability, as this lightweight cordless stick vac also quickly transforms into a handheld cleaner. So whether you have a few crumbs in your car or need to quickly blitz your rooms, it has the job covered. Like all the models in the Air Cordless range, its steerable technology allows you to swivel and turn around objects with just a flick of the wrist.

The Floormate Cordless offers the ultimate in high performance hard floor cleaning: once you’ve tried it you’ll wonder how you ever lived without it and you’ll certainly never use a mop and bucket again! This Floormate not only washes, scrubs and dries sealed hard flooring, its cordless design means you won’t trip up or get tangled and you don’t have to bend down to plug it in. Its rotating SpinScrubTM brushes gently lift dirt and stains, so it does all the scrubbing for you. When used with Vax Floor to Floor hard floor cleaning detergent it removes tough spots and stains, leaving your floors sparkling clean and dry with no dulling residue. Its fold-away handle means it can be stored away in the smallest of spaces.

James Holdgate, Head of New Product Development, commented: “We’ve listened to what our customers like and dislike about cleaning and created a new range for 2015 to meet these needs. They told us that cord free cleaning offers freedom and convenience, and we believe that in five years time the majority of products will be cord free. Our new Cordless range is pioneering this change, using transferable LithiumLifeTM batteries that mean you don’t have to compromise on performance.”

The range is available from major retailers and direct from for RRP £179.99 (Air Cordless Switch), RRP £249.99 (Floormate Cordless) and RRP £349.99 (Air Cordless Lift). For more information visit or call the UK-based Vax Customer Careline on 0330 026 8455.
