What our reviewer thought...
The Vax Blade Max 2 looks sleek and stylish. It’s all black profile means you can easily leave it out or mounted on a wall without it being an eye sore like others vacuums I have had in the past.
Boost Mode gives you increased power at the touch of a button, giving you high performance cleaning.
You can change the Vax Blade 2 Max into a handheld cleaner in seconds. Perfect for the stairs, pet hair removal, cars and upholstery.
Dusttracker LED headlights illuminate any area, leaving dust with nowhere to hide, for a perfect clean everywhere.
Extra tools: Crevice Tool, Dusting Brush, Tool Caddy & Wall Mount
The vacuum was easy to assemble - the instruction manual has step by step images and the pieces just clicked together. The vacuum was really lightweight and simple to use. All of the controls are on the handstick including the boost button that you can switch to for stubborn dirt. Converting to the handheld was again very simple - just press the release clip and the handheld will separate from the wand. All of the accessories can be attached to the handheld and used whilst in this mode. The vacuum gave great suction and whilst in boost mode the suction was extremely high - certainly not something I was expecting from a cordless vacuum! I found the dust tracker to be great feature - the headlights show up any trace of dirt especially any hidden under sofas.
The Vax Blade 2 Max is really simple to empty; one click of a button and the bin detaches making it really hygienic and easy to empty.
This outperformed my expectations. If you want high performing cordless vacuum then look no further! I was concerned that a run time of 45 minutes wouldn’t be long enough but I needn’t have worried. Weighing only 3.1kg the vacuum was lightweight and easy to maneuver with the bonus being that you don't need to change heads to switch from hard floor to carpets or rugs - like some other cordless vacuums on the market. Simply press the button and it does the hard work for you! All with a 2 year guarantee - I don’t think you can go wrong!
