Dry Cleaning Type

The cleaning type of this vacuum cleaner is Dry, which is typical of many vacuums of a comparable age and spec to it.

Fairly High Suction Power

The suction powers of vacuums of a comparable spec and age to the Air Mini range from 160W to 1,200W. The Air Mini has one of the higher suction powers (800 Watts) amongst similar spec vacuums of this age.

We compared all the other 800W suction power vacuum cleaners to this vacuum and we think the VAX Performance 12 C86-PB-Be[plb_2914926_price] which has better reviews is also worth considering.

Really good suction, but the hose is terrible. Kinks all the time and therefore the task takes twice as long to complete.
