Dyson China released the strongest wireless vacuum cleaner to date on the 21st: G5 Detect (the model in other regions is V15 Detect), redefining “the strongest vacuum cleaner in history”.
How strong is the strongest suction?
What defines the strongest? For vacuum cleaners, it’s the motor. The Dyson vacuum cleaner digital motor is the heart, and the heart is updated to the fifth generation, called the “G5 digital motor”. Flip the switch and you’ll get up to 262AW of powerful suction. Compared with the previous generation, the suction power is increased by 13%. That’s no small number, the motor revs up to 135,000 rpm, up to nine times faster than an F1 engine.
Of course, it is not called Dyson if you only pursue “the best in the world”. Behind the efficiency is quality and experience. Not only does the speed increase faster and the suction is stronger, but the new design also makes it smaller. The main shaft is 6 mm shorter, multiple parts are combined, and the motor system is more compact. Optimizing thermally conductive materials and turbulators allows the motor to spin faster and cool faster. The battery life is also up to Dyson’s “longest time”: 70 minutes.
The first Dyson vacuum cleaner that can suck up viruses
Here’s why a lot of people will want to buy it: The G5 Detect is the first vacuum cleaner proven to lock out the H1N1 virus. The H1N1 virus is one of the influenza A viruses and the most common influenza in humans. When an infected person coughs or sneezes, it can be passed on to others, and the virus can live on mobile phones, desktops, floors, etc. for a period of time. The new coronavirus and influenza virus are completely different viruses, the former is the family Coronaviridae and the latter is the family Orthomyxoviridae.
But being able to absorb and lock in the H1N1 virus has avoided many of the risks associated with the flu. Not only the H1N1 virus, it also locks down the MS2 virus. MS2 virus is also the smallest RNA virus that infects Escherichia coli and Enterobacteriaceae, among others. G5 Detect claims to capture 99.99% of particles as small as 0.1 microns, 99.9% of H1N1 and MS2 viruses.
The G5 Detect also features an upgraded fully sealed HEPA filtration system. 1.9m filter + 145 folds + 14 vortex cyclones = inhalation of virus particles, locked firmly in the machine to avoid leakage. Dyson has done another innovation.
Don’t be lazy, Dyson told you to suck the floor
When you want to be lazy and don’t clean, do you always look at the room and tell yourself: It’s not that dirty. Dyson said: Wake up, you’re getting dirty.
This time, G5 Detect wants to let people see at a glance how dirty the house is. From the same Dyson’s strongest “Fluffy Optic optical detection” technology, the upgraded optical soft velvet roller suction head can illuminate twice the invisible dust, and the range is extended to 30 cm, not only the dust is more “visible to the naked eye” when cleaning, but also visible farther. G5 Detect also adds a more direct LCD screen, which instantly displays 4 sizes of particles. The bar graph can see the change in particle concentration, and you can also see the dust statistics. You can immediately know the cleaning power and how many places to clean.
Dyson’s “Global Dust Research Report” this year shows that 52% of Chinese respondents will only clean when they see dust with the naked eye, which is 17% higher than last year. It seems that everyone is used to “passive cleaning”. However, in the current environment, people’s health awareness is getting higher and higher, and it is more important to keep the home clean; it is Dyson’s style to discover the problems that are ignored by people and solve them in the ultimate way.
Dyson: I beat myself
Everyone in the vacuuming world must want to beat Dyson, but Dyson is only worried about how to beat himself. Before Dyson appeared, founder James Dyson was cleaning with the then-famous Hoover vacuum cleaner one day in 1978 and found a big problem:
As the number of uses increases, the air holes of the dust bag will be blocked by dust, making it difficult for air to enter, causing the vacuum cleaner to lose suction. Therefore, the more you clean, the less suction the vacuum cleaner has, and it is very troublesome to change the dust bag all the time. And it’s the best vacuum cleaner on the market!
No one makes a good product, it is better for him to do it himself!
So 31-year-old James Dyson spent 4 years, made 5,127 prototypes, and finally succeeded in making a prototype cyclone vacuum cleaner. Using centrifugal force, air and dust rotate at high speed in the cone chamber, dust particles fall with gravity, and the separated air can be easily discharged from above. Of course, this result is obtained after thousands of failures.
Later, the Dyson team invented the world’s first electronically controlled motor with a speed of up to 107,000 times, but the volume is only a few fingers. Now when you use Dyson vacuums to solve problems, you can understand why Dyson products are so expensive, but they are still selling well.
James Dyson once said:
Like many people, we are often disappointed by products that don’t work. As design engineers, our mission is to continuously improve and innovate to solve life’s problems.
Dyson is not only making vacuum cleaners now, but also interesting products such as hair dryers and bladeless electric fans, which cause a conversation when they are launched. When seeing every new Dyson product, people may be attracted by high price, unique design and status symbol, but what really conquers consumers is Dyson’s inexhaustible challenge and creativity.
