Recently I was able to test another model of a cordless handheld vacuum cleaner, this time from the Dreame brand. Today we will talk about a model called Dreame T10.
The T10 is a new handheld vacuum cleaner that is a simplified version of the Dreame T20. Therefore, if you are on a tight budget, then most likely the updated model of the handheld vacuum cleaner from the Dreame company will be a good choice.
In this article, you can learn about the strengths and weaknesses of the T10 cordless vacuum cleaner. And also I will tell you my impressions about the quality of cleaning and how convenient it was to manage it.
First of all, let’s talk about the cost, currently, the Dreame T10 handheld vacuum cleaner will cost you only $250. Meanwhile, the older generation T20 will cost $310. The price tag for the simplified version is $60 less, but is it so critical in real life?
Well, from the technical features, I observe that the T10 version received an insignificant weight of the vacuum cleaner, which does not exceed 1.65 kg. Also, the power of the electric motor was 400W, and the power of the suction power was 120AW.
Another important metric is battery life. So the manufacturer Dreame promises that the T10 vacuum cleaner can work up to 60 minutes of continuous use.
Okay, from a technical point of view, I really liked the updated model of the handheld vacuum cleaner. But let’s check how the device will show itself from the practical side and start my in-depth and detailed review, I want to unpack it.
Dreame T10: Specifications
|Operating time:||from 8 to 60 minutes|
|Charging time:||3.5 hours|
|Product size (L x W x H):||762 x 338 x 150 mm|
Unboxing and packaging
The vacuum cleaner from the Dreame company is delivered in a rather large package. This is a white cardboard box that shows a drawing of the vacuum cleaner with its main features and functions.
Each component was neatly packed, and therefore the vacuum cleaner came to my test without any damage. The package for the new model of the handheld vacuum cleaner was standard, as on most products from the Dreame brand.
For example, inside the package, I found the vacuum cleaner body itself, a removable battery, various attachments, a wall mount, a flexible and aluminum hose. All in all, everything looked standard, as with most handheld cordless vacuums in this price range. Now I propose to talk about the quality of the device and its main assembly elements.
Design, build quality and materials
Basically, the body of the new model of the vacuum cleaner was made of white matte plastic. In terms of build quality, I did not identify any major problems at all, all the components were assembled perfectly. That is, even during my testing, I did not find extraneous squeaks and noises.
It is also worth noting that the upper part of the vacuum cleaner body was made of glossy black plastic. The logo of the Dreame company is located on the same surface. The combination of white, black, and gray gives the device a truly minimalistic look.
I can also highlight that all the attachments were removed and put on very easily and without any questions. In general, the entire body of the Dreame T10 vacuum cleaner was made of very high quality and beautiful.
At the end of the vacuum cleaner, you can see a switch of three modes with a lock button. There is also the main button for starting or stopping the vacuum cleaner.
As I said, the battery on the Dreame T10 is removable, so you can remove and charge it wherever you like. That is, there will be no need to transfer the entire vacuum cleaner from room to room. Also, you can additionally buy another battery for the case if you have a large apartment or house. But I’ll tell you about the battery life a little later.
The T10 itself received a weight of only 1.65 kg. Therefore, the teenager will feel comfortable using the new model of the handheld vacuum cleaner. Thus, even my 5-year-old child wore the device from room to room without any problems, imagining that he was doing the cleaning. If you are a fragile girl, then you obviously will not have any special problems using a handheld vacuum cleaner from the Dreame company.
The garbage container has a volume of 0.6 liters. This is currently the typical container volume for a cordless handheld vacuum cleaner in 2021. Debris and dust are removed in a very easy way. To do this, you need to press one button at the bottom of the container, after which the lid will open and all the debris will fall out by gravity.
It’s also worth talking about the filtration system, which is pretty well thought out here. This is a five-level filtration and in the picture below you can observe each filter element separately.
The most important of the filters are HEPA H12, which in turn can be washed under running water. But it must be used after complete drying, otherwise, the HEPA filter will fail prematurely.
The main brush, which is attached to a metal pipe to the main body, has received a number of improvements. That is, the main shaft was made with an interesting V-shape pattern. The manufacturer promises that thanks to this shape, all the debris, and especially the hair, will be easy to clean. But I’ll cover that in the next section. Okay, now I propose to start my story about the performance and how well the handheld vacuum cleaner copes with the tasks in real life.
Suction power, battery life, and cleaning quality
The manufacturer installed a Dreame Space 3.0 electric motor with a power of 400 watts in the Dreame T10 vacuum cleaner. As he assures, the suction power was 120 AW. This is a typical value for the suction power, as is the case with most handheld cordless vacuum cleaners. It is also worth noting that the suction pressure was within 20 thousand Pa.
These figures are standard, but will everything be so good in terms of cleaning? Let’s talk about all this a little later. Now I would like to talk about the modes of use. Above, I already said that the vacuum cleaner received three operating modes – eco, normal, and turbo mode. Each of them can be installed using a regulator on the side end of the vacuum cleaner body.
Therefore, depending on the operating mode, the battery life of the vacuum cleaner will differ. For example, in eco mode, the vacuum cleaner can work for 60 minutes. When using medium mode for about 25 minutes and at maximum mode for only 8 minutes. A 2500 mAh built-in battery is used inside the body of the device, which can be charged in 3.5 hours.
Again, as for its class, the handheld vacuum cleaner looks very good in terms of technical characteristics. But let’s test the device in real life and see how well the new model of the cordless vacuum cleaner from the Dreame company will clean.
During my testing of the new model of the Dreame T10 vacuum cleaner, the device coped with the tasks set fairly well. That is, hard surfaces, like carpets, were cleaned very well by the vacuum cleaner. But this does not apply to animal hair. For example, if you have a cat or a dog, and in addition to carpets, then it will be difficult to clean the vacuum cleaner even at maximum power.
Thus, I can conclude that cordless vacuum cleaners are more suitable for cleaning dust, dirt, sand, and other debris. But when it comes to more complex garbage, such as animal dander, it makes no sense to expect high-quality cleaning.
Conclusion, reviews, pros, and cons
The budget model of the cordless handheld vacuum cleaner Dreame T10 has shown itself quite on the positive side.
For example, I can attribute to the advantages – this is a wide list of components. That is, out of the box you will find a large number of different attachments and brushes that will help you do your cleaning quickly and efficiently.
I also liked the battery life. During my testing, I mostly used medium mode. It seemed to be the most optimal, both in terms of suction power and battery life.
I can’t pass by the build quality with the materials used. All components were assembled very efficiently and without any questions.
Okay, now about the disadvantages. First, it should be said that the device was created for easy cleaning. That is, if you have animals, then the vacuum cleaner will not cope with wool or long hair. Even if you use the maximum operating mode, the cleaning quality will not be perfect.
Price and where to buy cheaper?
Currently, the price tag for the Dreame T10 handheld cordless vacuum cleaner is very attractive, which was only $251.99 with a 28% discount.
Yes, I can definitely recommend the new model of the vacuum cleaner. But you should understand that it will be useful if you do not have pets. Otherwise, it is worth considering other options for vacuum cleaners that will have more power and more suction power.
