Dyson V12 Slim Test Absolute: a vacuum cleaner-balai that has it in the slim

Writing note: 4 out of 5

Presented as a reduced version of the V15 Detect, the V12 seems rather inspired by the V11 released more than 2 years ago. Smaller, lighter and theoretically more handy, will he show up at the height of his glorious elder ?


The Dyson V12 Slim was presented a few months ago, with the V15. Strong of the aspiration lamin boarding the laser-to-see-la-pouter, we had concluded a little hastily that this V12 wanted a kind of mini v15. And yet, a glance on the technical sheet shows us that it is rather on the side of the extra V11 (with removable battery therefore) that you have to look for the similarities. With a particle sensor, this multi-cyclonic filtration-filtration vacuum cleaner accommodates a screen at the back of the main block, especially used to monitor the remaining autonomy thanks to an estimate to the second second. More compact and lighter than the V11, Dyson had to reduce the size of the collector which goes from 0.76 liters to “only” 0.35 liter. In a word as in a hundred, the V12 Slim seems to erase the defects of the extra V11. To the point of becoming The dyson to have ?

Convenience of employment

Even without being a balais vacuum cleaners, we immediately know that the V12 Slim comes out of Dyson’s study offices because of its garish colors, even if this time the suction tube plays the sobriety card thanks to its metallic black of good aloi. As always, the materials seem to be quality and ready to face many muscular household sessions without showing too quickly signs of wear or breakage. The different pieces fit perfectly, without leaving interstices; The tightness is therefore perfect and there is no risk of spitting dust during aspiration.

In 2019, we criticized a weight in the v11 after all, since the main block reaches almost 2 kg (1.99 kg very exactly) to climb up to 3 kg when it goes into soil aspiration mode, that is, -Dire provided with the tube and the hard brush “High torque”. The V12 Slim has undergone a drastic weight loss treatment and the weight of the main block does not exceed 1.48 kg. With the suction tube and the suction head with hard brush, the scale indicates 2.34 kg and even 2.10 kg if you choose to put on the soft brush fluffy, that with the laser. Conclusion, we pass the V12 Slim without too much effort, even if the household tends to drag. In addition, the joints of the suction head are very flexible and we can take very tight turns without seeing the head slip on the ground; it’s not always the case.

As a Balai aspirator, the V12 Slim is not really a complicated device to master, but it marks a break in the little world of Dyson. Indeed, the omni-glide aside is the first stick model of the British brand to use the continuous suction method. So just press the red button above the engine block to turn it on; The aspiration will continue as long as a second support has not stopped it. So far, it was necessary to maintain a continuous pressed relaxation so that the vacuum cleaner does not stop working. Thus we gained independently since it was not necessary to turn off the device to move a piece of furniture or a trinket, to the detriment of comfort however, since it was necessary to constantly press the relaxation.

If everyone sees noon at their door and it is therefore difficult to decide in favor of continuous or split suction, we would have liked the general food button to be better placed. Indeed, we can “pilot” the vast majority of the balais vacuum cleaners of our comparison with one hand, that is to say to turn them on, extinguish them, if necessary modify the suction power. If this last operation is also possible on the V12 Slim, you will have to use your second hand to press this famous Shape/stop button. It looks like nothing, but it is not uncommon to press a relaxation in a vacuum before remembering that this is not how V12 Slim works and use the adequate method; annoying.

The rest of the control panel therefore consists of a key to vary the suction power. Minor change, it is not round and metal, but rectangular and plastic; We lose a little in prestige, but the operation remains exactly the same. We press the key to switch from one level to another and the screen displays, in addition to the name of the power (Eco, Inter, Boost) the estimate of the remaining autonomy. You can plan your cleaning session without fear of seeing the V12 Slim stop in the middle of it.

We received the V12 Slim in its absolute version, therefore equipped to the end of the suction pipe. Apart from the main block, the soft head with the laser and the suction tube, the box contains a motorized brush with hard-haired and a self-demolish motorized minibrosse. Recall that these equipment is not compatible with other Dyson-Balais vacuum cleaners. There is also a sewn tube to facilitate the use of the V12 Slim under the furniture, a rigid brush, a long sucker, the brush acting as a flat sucker, a storage clip to fix on the suction tube and a wall base for storage which also acts as a recharge base. Indeed, as aspirator-balai in stick format, the V12 does not stand alone.

Like any vacuum cleaner-balai dyson worthy of the name, the V12 Slim shows excellent suction performance, but it will have to be put on the right brush to reach an optimal result.

On long hair carpet, for example, in two minutes of suction in Boost mode, equipped with the soft brush, it already collects 99 % of the rice that we have spread. But by connecting the hard brush to it, with the nylon hairs which beat the textile fibers to extract the dirt, we arrive at an impeccable result in 1 minute in Boost mode on this surface, generally complicated to get rid of the trash that Emberlifying in woolen loops.

On fine carpet, on the other hand, it is better to mount the soft brush since it reaches an efficiency rate of 100 % in 30 seconds, regardless of the level of power chosen. The hard brush tends to push the rice grains behind it and this time it takes a minute to hope to recover everything (96 % in “inter” mode in 30 seconds and 98 % in Boost mode in the same period of time).

Finally, on hard floors, it is still the gentle brush that is the most effective by sucking 100 % of waste in 30 seconds in intermediate mode or in Boost mode. The hard brush (in intermediate or boost mode) leaves 1 % of the rice dragged after 30 seconds of use, still because of the rejection phenomenon backwards.

Dyson renews the drain system of the “Point & Shoot” collector, no doubt what is best in this area. You just have to push on the red lever to see the tank advance while a rubber blade scrapes the filter grille to remove the debris that could have hung there. Arrived at the end of the race, the articulated bottom opens and drops the trash in the trash: simple, fast, clean.

One might think that this system complicates the withdrawal of the waste tank for cleaning, but this is not really the case. By pushing a red button on the collector, the latter was dissociated from the engine block before putting it back in place, with a little difficulty, however; Nothing insurmountable that said.

Another satisfaction, the multicyclonic filtration of the V12 Slim is as efficient as those of other dyson-bales vacuum cleaners. Fine dust is entirely directed to the collector and it remains contained there. As proof, after weighing the part on board the foam and HEPA filters with the precision balance, we had 20 grams of cocoa powder to dyson v12 slim swallowed 20 grams. After a few seconds of operation, we carried out a second weighing. The weight of the purple part remained the same to the nearest thousandth of a gram. The powder did not reach the filters. In fact, they therefore do not risk being saturated too quickly.

Nevertheless, so as not to lose aspiration power, it remains necessary to maintain filters from time to time. This operation is most practical since the filtration system is contained on the purple part previously mentioned and that it is enough to unscrew it from the back of the main block to clean it.

Finally, the maintenance of the soft brush should not be a problem since no tool is required to remove the roll from the head and that it is also easily rewarded. Therefore, one wonders why the same system is not used on the hard brush since it is necessary to equip yourself with a room or a spoon handle to unscrew a plastic part and access the rotary brush.

As often in Dyson, autonomy seems a bit limited to us.

The battery of the V12 Slim also deserves this qualifier since it is more compact than that of an extra V11 V11 in particular. Admittedly, it is not necessarily the size that counts in this area, but it is clear that this V12 is not a marathona.

He runs out of steam after only 7 min 15 s to maximum power. We can hope to vacuum for 34 minutes in intermediate mode when a model like the Rowenta Air Force 760 can officer for 66 minutes without interruption. Note that the V12 Slim has a completely usable eco mode and that its autonomy reaches this time 49 min 40 s.

Like the omni-glide before it, the V12 Slim is fast enough to recharge the batteries since it only takes 120 minutes to have its 100 % full batteries.

Writing note: 4 out of 5


At the intermediate power, the sound level of the V12 Slim reaches 64 dB (a) if we use the soft brush and 68 dB (a) with the hard brush. The noise of the engine covers the noise of the rotary brushes if we push the V12 Slim to the maximum power and the soundometer then climbs up to 73 dB (A).

We have known more discreet, but the sound level of the V12 Slim is quite bearable.
