- The Gtech AirRam Vacuum cleaner Does anyone own one !
I have one ( bought for my wife as a pregnancy present).
They are awesome. And g tech customer service is second to none. I broke the bar ( my fault) rung them up to ask to buy new part and they said they’d do it under warranty. They arranged delivery. Picked up fixed and dropped off within a week.
It comes with a 5year warranty too.Posted 3 years ago
yep It seems to be good with pet hair
Pretty much sold. just wondering about the Gtech Multi.
From reviews the only Dyson rival on this seems to be the DC 59 that retails at £ 350
But you can purchase the airRam and multi for £ 299 and the multi seems a better hand held tool.

Yep peteimpreza I have seen that vid clip on the one pass suction test
But I nearly got sucked into the Dyson vid clip. But the Dyson still loses
as it only has 8 minute usage from a 3hr charge.
Whilst the Gtech lasts 30 mins from a full 4hr charge, so after two or three passes over that
overly large dust area that you wouldn’t find in anyones home will be sucked up and still
be able to finish off the rest of your home.
Whilst you wait a further 3hr to charge to try and finish of downstairs before even going up stairs
That would be a further 9 hrs wait time to finish your home
Plus the features of the Gtech Multi with a 30min run time is way better than the Dyson DC 59
as a stand alone hand held. And if you buy the two Gtech machines together for £ 299
is a much better package

too early to ask about overall battery life and replacement? and how does it charge, in a charger or plugged into mains?Posted 3 years ago
does it have a ‘cycle life’ where if you charge it before its drained its life gets shorter, or do you just keep it on charge constantly and just use it as and when?nickjbSubscriber
I suppose it depends on your priority. The gtech has a much longer battery life but it does that at the expense of suction. To me that seems a bit daft. Yes you can spend 3 hours cleaning but you need to as pick up is poor. You can clean a room in under a minute with the dyson so for a normal house 9 mins is plenty. Its a shame they are so expensive.
To declare an interest I used to work for dyson (with Knoxy in that video, he hasn’t changed a bit in 15 years) but it was a long time ago so no connection these days. The priority in development back then was always dirt pick up.Posted 3 years agoCrellMember
We’ve had one for about 18 months. Can’t fault it. Only downside is the lack of a hose if you just buy the air ram. We got a deal on a spare battery and yet to use it (from Costco I think). it’ll tell you how far you walked via a usb cable. Sadly no HRM or power meter 🙂Posted 3 years agowobbliscottMember
The mother in law has both the GTec and the Dyson. She likes both but loves the Dyson and has never complained about battery life – though its not her main vacuum cleaner, so if she had to clean the whole house in one go then she wouldn’t use either of them – though she’s one of these peple that’s always cleaning so the house would never get into that state! So the Dyson is perfectly fine for cleaning a room at a time and keeping on top of the vacuuming.Posted 3 years agoIHNMember
And who gives a to$$ about a rechargeable vacuum cleaner (apart from handhelds)? The mild extra hassle of plugging one in is a small price to pay for 240v of sucking oomph for as long as you need it vs. 22v of limited sucking oomph that’ll last half an hour max.
EDIT – plus, eco-warriors, there’s lots of nasty chemicals and process that go into batteries, and they’re less efficient than using the power straight fom the mains.Posted 3 years ago
