Samsung Jet Light VS70 Cordless Vacuum Review: Features
Many things make the Samsung Jet Light VS70 a must-have vacuum. In this section, we examine every feature that makes Samsung Jet Light VS70 unique and worth your investment.
i. Power source
The Samsung Jet Light VS70 is cordless and uses a removable and replaceable battery. The battery is known to be long-lasting since it operates in its full capacity for longer than its peers. After using it for 5 years, the capacity is only expected to reduce by only 30%. Also, there is a battery life indicator to keep you informed on the charge status.
We highly recommend you buy a spare battery because it takes approximately three and a half hours to charge. As with other cordless vacuums, battery usage is dependent on the speed settings and accessories you choose. Once fully charged, it can run for up to 40 minutes on minimum settings without attachments.
The battery offers powerful consistent suction that helps makes cleaning fun and effective. The unit generates up to 150 Air watts of power, which is more than enough for cleaning the standard home. Besides, the unit uses multi-cyclone technology to prevent dirt from clogging the filters. So, you get a fade-free suction from start to finish.
As much as stick vacuums are easy to use, the Samsung Jet Light VS70 is much friendlier; it’s a pretty lightweight vacuum with an 8.5 inches wide brush. It has 3 control levels (minimum, maximum, and medium) and that helps the user clean conveniently.
Its reach between and under furniture is considerably smooth keeping in mind the friendly cleaning head size and its flexibility. It only weighs 5.79 pounds, so moving it from one spot to the other or up and down the stairs is a walk in the park.
iv. Turbo Action brush
This is one of the major advantages of using the Samsung Jet Light VS70. This brush cleans spectacularly whether your floor is tiled, carpeted, or hardwood. It’s a good tool for removing deeply embedded dirt, pet hair, and dried stains, especially on hard floors.
v. Multi-surface cleaning
This is another huge plus for the Samsung Jet Light VS70 considering most stick vacuums can hardly handle anything apart from hard floors. Its great suction coupled with the Turbo Active brush does a commendable job of picking hair and debris from carpets as well as hard floors.
Another plus of using the Samsung Jet Light VS70 is that it doesn’t spin dirt as you vacuum and it thoroughly picks both large and fine debris.
Samsung equipped the Jet Light VS70 with a 5-level HEPA filtration system. At stage one; the filters capture the larger particles. At stage 2, the medium level particles are filtered. Then, stage 3 takes care of the fine particles such as pollen and dust. This is what minimizes dust content in the indoor air.
In stage 4, there is a washable micro-filter that takes care of the fine particles that could have been missed out. Lastly, stage 5 is almost the same with stage 4 only that it fights against the emission of ultra-fine debris.
So, if you are fighting allergies and asthma, this is a great option, given that it captures and traps up to 99.99% of allergens.
vii. Disposal system
This vacuum uses a detachable, easy-to-clean dirt can (EZClean bin) with a 0.8-liter capacity. While this is not much, it is larger than what you get with other cordless stick vacs. Besides, the bin is dishwasher-friendly and can last a whole cleaning session before emptying.
viii. Charging base
One of the most appealing features of this vacuum is that it’s charging base is mountable and has 2 charging slots. So, you can charge two batteries simultaneously taking the same amount of time to charge.
The charging base also has storage slots for accessories which allow convenient storage. The base can be mounted on the wall or a desk.
Any good vacuum is accompanied by attachments that help with cleaning stairs, drapes, upholstery, baseboards, car interiors, and so on. Apart from the Turbo Action brush, this vacuum comes with a mini motorized tool, a combination tool, and an extension crevice tool.
The accessories are easy to attach and detach and they ease above-floor cleaning. As earlier suggested, you will notice that the motorized accessories reduce the vacuum’s overall runtime meaning you may need to recharge in between cleaning if you don’t have an extra battery.
x. Handheld option
Like many stick vacuums, the Samsung Jet Light VS70 can also be quickly converted into a handheld vacuum. This 2-in-1 functionality only helps to increase its versatility. When used with the right attachment, the vacuum will surely leave the whole room sparkling clean.
