Dyson DC44 Battery Details & Clear Up
Are you interested in getting hold of the very popular & powerful Dyson Digital slim mk. ii (i.e the DC44 also known as the DC45), however are unsure on the exact details with regards to its battery life (run time), how long it takes to charge etc. — well this account will be able to help you clear up any potential confusion you may have regarding it.
What Battery Does the Dyson DC44 Have?
Dyson have integrated the DC44 with a powerful lithium ion 22.2 volt battery — which plays a significant factor in it being the second most powerful cordless stick vacuum on the market (after that of the DC59, Digital slim mk.iii, which leads the way significantly).
It has two different cleaning modes: the standard option where it operates for 28 Air watts constantly and then a boost mode for tackling ‘dirtier’ patches and areas where it is able to apply an extra 70% of power i.e 65 Air watts which is ‘twice the suction of any other cordless vacuum in use (with the exception of the DC59)‘.
What is the DC44 Run Time (Battery Life)?
If you were to use the DC44 with just the standard cleaning option it can last up to a little over 20 minutes and if you are just going to hold down the boost mode it will last up to 8 minutes. However, you are more likely to interchange between them quite frequently, so the average cleaning time is likely to be upwards of 16 minutes. Which is actually quite a significant amount of time for what the DC44 is intended for. Who really wants to spend ore than 20 minutes cleaning up?
Note that when the DC44 is changed into a handheld it still has the same run time approximately. Also, that when you attach the mini motorized tool with the DC44 Animal that will impact the run time to about 17 minutes when used constantly on the standard cleaning mode.
What is the Dyson DC44’s Charge Time?
You get a docking station that keeps the DC44 nice and neatly stored away and is also capable of charging it. It takes roughly 5.5 hours to charge it from dead to full, so isn’t all that quick in fairness. But a clever trick is to buy another battery for as low as $30 — then you can effectively double your cleaning run time, as when one runs out just pop the other pre-charged battery in and then you’re good to again.
Any Difference Between the DC44 Multi-floor and DC44 Animal?
There doesn’t actually exist any differences between the multiple versions of the DC44 in regards to the battery performance (they are all exactly the same). The only difference between them comes in their finish and what attachments & accessories are provided with the vacuum model. In this case the DC44 multi-floor only comes with a combination tool (used for tight gaps & has the ability to double up for powered dusting), however the DC44 animal also comes with a mini motorized pet hair tool for effective pet hair pick up.
Remember that you can also buy additional attachments for the DC44 to improve its cleaning functionality yet further — for instance if you buy the Dyson cordless cleaning kit, you get a soft dusting brush, stiff bristle brush etc.
