Design and Features:
The Kyvol V20 vacuum comes well-packed and protected to ensure it arrives on your doorstep in pristine condition.
The first step was charging the battery, a four-hour process. As the vacuum charges, three blue LEDs show status, eventually turning solid when charging is complete.
The charger is a 26.5-volt, 500mA wall-wart transformer. The vacuum end plugs into a coax-style socket on the top.
I would have preferred a charger that connects when the Kyvol V20 vacuum is placed into the wall charger, but this design is simple and gets the job done.
The battery is detachable and can be charged independently of the vacuum, a great feature! If your vacuuming needs are greater than 40 minutes, replacements can be purchased. Battery life is accurate. I measured 45 minutes of run time on carpet and bare floors.
Assembly is intuitive and made even easier with well-written instructions from the manual.
The Kyvol V20 motor is activated with the pull of a trigger. The vacuum defaults to the lower power setting. Toggling between the lower and higher modes is done with a pushbutton atop the vacuum assembly.
Even on the higher setting, the V20 is surprisingly quiet and suction was great.
I was impressed with the amount of kitty and bunny hair, cracker crumbs, and wayward kibble that whirled around in the dust bin after the first spin around the carpet.
Long hairs and threads might get wrapped up around the motorized beater bar in the vacuum head, but I had no trouble freeing them with a pair of scissors.
The dust enclosure pops open to release debris into any convenient waste bin. There are no bags or need to touch the dusty interior of the vacuum unless there is a need to clean the dust bin more deeply.
Kyvol’s design makes it simple to completely disassemble.
The larger motorized head is equipped with LEDs to illuminate those hard-to-see corners. I wish all vacuums had headlights!
The mini motorized head is ideal for cleaning chairs, curtains, and carpets!
The head is equipped with an interesting swivel that allows for optimal cleaning angles, another nice feature!
Also included are a 2-in-1 brush tool and crevice nozzle. Both are useful in poking around couch cushions and subduing the occasional spider that mistakenly chooses my bedroom as its sanctuary – fat chance arachnid invader! The V20 is here to save me!
What I Like
- Removable batteries that can be charged independently of the vacuum
- A mini motorized brush head is included
What I Would Change
- Add a charger integrated into the wall mount
I love “grab and go” stick vacuums for fast cleanup and the Kyvol V20 does not disappoint. With two motorized heads, removable batteries, abundant suction, long battery life, and easy disassembly, the Kyvol V20 is a winner in my book!
