I used to be requested to assessment one of many fashions in its newest R collection, the newly-launched Dreame R10. It’s the primary cordless vacuum from the model that I’ve personally examined and I had excessive expectations of it.
Taking it out of the field, these expectations solely elevated: the Dreame R10 may be very fairly, however is all that glitters gold?
Right here’s the way it carried out.

As you will have seen, the mannequin I examined is white. In my case, it’s the best color – and never solely due to its aesthetic attraction – however as a result of it blends in nicely with the white partitions of my home. I like that as a result of, being a big machine, it could possibly in any other case draw the attention extra that I’d like.
If it had been black or gray, I might have had a more durable time discovering a spot to face it. For those who really feel in any other case, I’m sorry to say that you simply’re out of luck, as this mannequin is just accessible in white. From the identical cordless vacuum collection, the R10 Professional mannequin or the R20 mannequin are offered (solely) in black.
The vacuum is made up of a cylinder the place we discover the cyclonic separator, the pre-filter and the dustbin. The cleansing equipment are hooked up to the underside of the cylinder.
The dustbin has a capability of 0.6 litres. It’s not massive however as a plus, it’s straightforward to empty. Merely use the swap to pop open the lid. It’s also possible to take away the pre-filter and cyclone separator for cleansing. Dreame recommends leaving them to air dry for no less than 24 hours afterwards.
On the highest of the cylinder is a deal with with a swap, which separates the non-removable battery (with the charging port and 6 LED lights to point the standing of the battery each when utilizing it and when it’s charging) and the controls: there’s a pace adjustment swap and a lock button so that you don’t want to carry down the set off when working it.

You should use this cordless vacuum with the extendable wand for flooring cleansing, or with out to achieve tougher locations or vacuum sofas and furnishings comfortably.
The primary brush, which is more likely to be the one you utilize most frequently, is the one one with inbuilt lights. That’s nothing new on the earth of cordless vacuums, and whereas it’s not as highly effective because the laser on the newer Dyson fashions, it’s nonetheless efficient at seeing filth in darkish locations.
In contrast to another vacuums, the Dreame R10 can’t arise by itself. I’ve it propped towards a wall at residence, though in the event you choose (particularly if in case you have pets or babies), you should utilize the wall bracket that comes within the field.
Straightforward to make use of and straightforward to alter attachments
Three suction modes
Small tank, however lengthy sufficient battery life

This equipment provides 120AW of suction energy and 20,000Pa stress. This may increasingly not let you know a lot, however you must be capable of vacuum up many of the filth in your house with none issues. You may select from three completely different modes, however I feel more often than not you’ll go for one of many two extra highly effective ones.
To function the vacuum, you merely press the set off button on the deal with and let it go if you’re performed. Personally, I choose to make use of it this manner, because it minimises noise if you shift positions or transfer from place to put. Nonetheless, you should utilize the lock key for vacuuming with out having to carry down the button. This may very well be helpful on very massive surfaces.
In its instruction handbook, Dreame lists the use circumstances for every accent.
As I stated earlier than, the multi-surface brush is the comb head you’ll use most frequently. It’s appropriate for all sorts of flooring (it’s been nice on my parquet flooring), but additionally for brief pile carpets. However watch out in case your carpet has fringes, as they’ll get tangled within the brush.
Generally, it could possibly suck up hair and mud simply, though heavier soiling means you’ll discover must cross over the world greater than as soon as. Tip: in these circumstances, it really works greatest in the event you run the vacuum in the direction of you.

My second favorite accent is the versatile brush. It’s slim and elongated, which lets you get into hard-to-reach corners. I’ve additionally used it to hoover the corners of partitions, image frames and cabinets.

The R10 additionally features a motorised brush perfect for vacuuming cloth surfaces akin to a settee or cushions. The broader brush (seen within the second picture beneath) can also be appropriate for materials, however Dreame additionally recommends it for keyboards. The ‘6’ key on my laptop computer remains to be affected by its encounter, so I recommend you don’t attempt it your self.
The battery life is sufficient to vacuum the areas that are inclined to get the dirtiest every so often for a number of days, or for one or two extra thorough cleanings (however that’ll rely on the dimensions of your private home).
Nonetheless, you’ll must empty the onboard bin extra typically. In each day use, I discovered the dustbin barely too small, though I quickly obtained into the routine of charging the battery and emptying the bin on the similar time.
