Shark DuoClean IF250UK Review
First of all, Shark it’s a big name when it comes to vacuum cleaners. Over the years produced some of the most interesting vacuums.
Shark DuoClean IF250UK it’s a decent alternative to some of the best vacuums. It’s a super cordless vacuum cleaner that can run for 44 minutes from a single charge with two batteries (22 minutes each).
The Shark DuoClean IF250UK is cheaper than the latest Dyson V10 (Cyclone Animal it’s the cheaper Dyson V10).
Has a fantastic innovative design and comes with a good number of attachments and accessories (30 cm crevice tool, dusting brush, dust & allergen brush, upholstery tool and of course 2 batteries, a double charging dock and charger).
It’s light enough (4 kg) to carry, and suitably portable as well.
Great maneuverability with Shark’s Flexology technology, which means you can bend the cleaner at the mid-way point, so you can access those hard to reach places like under your sofa or under your furniture without having to get down on your knees.
Shark DuoClean IF250UK Review: Cleaning performance
Most importantly, suction power is very good.
Two unique brush rolls work together (DuoClean Technology) to effortlessly remove all types of mess from hard floors and carpets. This motorized head it’s super awesome, has both soft and brush-based rollers, allowing it to do a great job on carpets (or rugs) and hard floors without swapping between heads.
If you own a pet, you can get a extra edition version that comes with in-built pet cleaning features.
Another great thing is that you get 5 year warranty (2 years for the batteries).
Has a pistol-grip unit, so easily converts to a handheld vacuum.
Comes with washable filters, one foam filter on the top and one exhaust filter on the bottom.
Takes 3.5 hours to fully charge the batteries, when you use the double charging dock.
We have spot some downsides as well. Bin capacity could be a little bit bigger, it’s just 0.33 L and there’s no dirt ejection system, you have to open the lid, flip over and hope everything drops out.
