Vax Launches New Air Mini compact cylinder vacuum

If you’re looking for a compact, easy to store vacuum that you don’t need to be a Weightlifter to carry up your stairs, then look no further than Vax’s new Air Mini and Air Mini Pet bagless multi-cyclonic cylinder vacuum.

The UK’s best-selling floorcare brand has been busy this year, with the Air Mini being the latest in a series of new products Vax has launched this year in the UK, and many more currently in the pipeline from its British based design team.

Air Mini and Air Mini Pet – which were designed right here in Britain – are available from and are priced at £149.99 and £179.99 respectively.

Weighing just 5kg, it is a highly compact bagless vacuum, providing constant powerful suction,making it ideal for storage and easy to carry upstairs and from room-to-room. Its features include a 2 metre hose, a 6 metre cord and a H12 HEPA filter, helping to remove very fine dust particles, pollen and other allergens.  The Air Mini is also versatile, being suitable for hard floors as well as carpets and upholstery.

The Air Mini Pet comes with a ‘TurboTool’ for easily removing stubborn pet hair from carpets, upholstery and stairs, as well as an antibacterial H12 HEPA filter, which reduces bacteria, allergens and pet-related odours.

The multi-cyclonic technology in the Air Mini ensures dirt is separated from the air, so the suction is always as powerful as the first time you use it. Its performance level is also above average for a multi-cyclonic cylinder with 280 air watts (suction power) ensuring effective cleaning all around your home.

With a market leading six year guarantee, peace of mind is ensured with the Air Mini.

Paul Bagwell, Global Vice President of Product Development at Vax, said; “It’s been a year of ongoing innovation for Vax and this is further cemented with the introduction of the Air Mini cylinder vacuum. It may be more compact but it certainly doesn’t compromise on power, making it the ideal choice for customers who value their storage space AND vacuum suction performance.”
