Lithium-ion Battery Powered Miele Hyrbid Vacuum

Think of the Miele Hyrbid Vacuum as compact cleaning Prius. And like its auto fuel efficient relative, the Hybrid vacuum can operate free from usual constraints of a normal plug-in vacuum, thanks to the inclusion of lithium-ion batteries. The 1,800 watt motor is free to suck up dust and dirt like any other Miele, but untethered by cord or cable, making this a dream vacuum indeed for neat freaks all over.

The Miele Hybrid seems especially suited for cleaning hard to reach/navigate spaces like the stairs or while vacuuming the car, since you no longer have to worry about reaching far enough or getting tangled up like a traditional plug-in model. It takes about 3 hours of charging time for 20 minutes of battery operation, and the battery charges any time you're plugged into an outlet.

As typical of a Miele, its cleaning performance is top notch, with inclusion of an AirClean filter and 9 levels of filtration HEPA-grade disposable HyClean FJM bags and variety of hose tools for a myriad of household and around the house cleaning tasks. Everything sounds great and you're ready to shell out for this wonder vacuum? We were too, until we noted the $1,061, reminding us why we don't own a Miele ourselves yet also despite our rabid desire to join the cult...ahem...club.
