VonHaus 2-in-1 600 W Convertible Vacuum Cleaner Features and Specifications
VonHaus 2-in-1 convertible vacuum feature 600 watts motor, providing good a suction of 14 kPa max. Power cord is 19.5 feet (~6 m) long, providing maximum reach of ~21 feet (~6.4 m) without flexible cleaning hose or ~22 feet (~6.7 m) with the use of flexible cleaning hose.
Power cord is stored on the cord wrap hooks manually. Power controls are on the handheld vacuum, allowing the vacuum to be simply turned on and off, as required.
Telescopic handle is designed to be adjusted according to the personal needs of individual users and it allows quick transformation from stick vacuum to handheld and back with the simple press of the button.
In stick vacuum configuration, unit weighs ~4.5 pounds (~2 kg), allowing the unit to be easily carried around, even up and down the stairs and to be very maneuverable on flat floors.
Main cleaner head doesn't feature rotating brush - it is designed for vacuuming bare floors like tiles, laminate, hardwood floors and similar and low-pile carpets. Medium- and high-pile carpets require vacuums with motorized brushroll and stronger suction with larger air flow.
However, on the bare floors, VonHaus 2-in-1 cleaner head does good job.
Dirt bin is transparent, with the capacity of 1.3 liters up to the max. fill line, which is excellent capacity for the vacuum of this size and price range.
Dirt bin can be easily and quickly emptied, without making a mess. It is recommended to empty the dirt bin after each use to prevent any issues with smells and similar.
Air filtration is good and it is based on the cyclonic action and sponge and HEPA pleated air filter, but the manufacturer never states the actual HEPA level of air filtration.
VonHaus even advertise this vacuum as HEPA vacuum cleaner, but personally I doubt that it is able to capture 99.97% of 0.3 microns or larger particles - it is IMHO not true HEPA vacuum cleaner.
Nonetheless, air filtration is good, which is very important for people with health issues, especially with the allergies and asthma.
Both sponge and HEPA air filters are washable, just be sure to thoroughly dry them before assembling them back into the vacuum. Also, never vacuum with moist filters or without them.
VonHaus 2-in-1 600 W convertible unit comes with several additional cleaning attachments, enabling the user to clean elevated surfaces, too.
- Crevice Tool is designed for vacuuming narrow gaps and spaces, like corners, edges, between seats and cushions. One of the interesting features is flip-up small brush on the crevice tool, allowing dusting of tight gaps and similar.
- Dusting Brush is used for picking up fine dust and other dirt from various surfaces, including desks, bookshelves, car seats and interiors etc.
- Flexible Cleaning Hose is small hose for connecting cleaning tools with the unit, allowing vacuuming of uneven and even very awkward spaces, like car interiors and other similar surfaces.
Since VonHaus 2-in-1 unit is designed for mostly bare floors, VonHaus manufactures Turbo Cleaning Brush, which can be attached instead of the main cleaner head.
VonHaus Turbo Cleaning Brush uses rotating brushroll to penetrate carpets and thick area rugs, helping the unit vacuum deeply embedded dirt and human and pet hair.
Turbo Cleaning Brush makes VonHaus 2-in-1 vacuum even more versatile, however, it also increases the price of the vacuum cleaner as the cleaning system, and it is not maintenance free tool - when human and pet hair get entangled around the brushroll, it must be cleaned manually.
Turbo Cleaning Brush can be ordered separately, when it is available.
For Short: If you are looking for cheap convertible vacuum that does its job rather good, consider this unit. After all, it comes with 1-year limited warranty, which isn't common in this price range.
