Polaris PVCS 0922HR portable vacuum cleaner test: comfortable cleaning in 30 minutes

Polaris PVCS 0922HR portable vacuum cleaner test: comfortable cleaning in 30 minutes


The new model of the vacuum cleaner Polaris PVCS 0922 HR is lightweight, compact and not annoying with strong noise. Sufficient suction power paired with an electric brush provides high-quality cleaning of smooth floors. But what about carpeting and how powerful is the battery? All the details are in our review.

The Polaris PVCS 0922HR manual vacuum cleaner is battery powered and has high mobility and maneuverability during operation. It does not need to be connected to the outlet and constantly throw the cord to move from one cleaning zone to another. Despite its small size and weight, this model is almost as good as bulky floor counterparts in terms of dust collection quality. CHIP has tested this model and is ready to share the test results.

Test results:

The charge of the battery Polaris PVCS 0922 HR is enough for a full cleaning in apartments with one room. It is convenient to hold and operate the vacuum cleaner, the design is well balanced and does not cause discomfort during cleaning. Noise when working with this model is significantly lower than that of more eminent counterparts. The disadvantages include a relatively short operating time - about 35 minutes with a rotating electric brush attached. But this was enough for us to thoroughly clean several rooms. Even at the end of the charge, the suction power did not drop, which indicates an excellent design of the cyclone chamber of the dust collector. Of course, it was not without minor flaws, which we describe below.

Benefits

  • Small size and weight
  • Convenient dust collector and nozzles
  • Not noisy at work
  • Constant suction power
  • Highlighting cleaning area
  • Relatively low price

disadvantages

  • Gentle design electrogrid
  • No network function

Design and ergonomics

The model of the manual vacuum cleaner Polaris PVCS 0922HR is built according to the classical scheme, where the tube-rod is attached to the body of the flask of the dust collector. This imposes certain restrictions on the load, especially when cleaning carpets. However, with careful use, it will serve for a long time and will please you with comfort in use. In all connections, a snap button is applied, so that all parts are assembled and disassembled instantly.

This is not the first model in the line of portable vacuum cleaners company Polaris. In this modification, the manufacturer has significantly improved some components of the vacuum cleaner and brushes, here all the buttons are made of red transparent plastic, and the electric brush uses multi-row soft bristles that are easy to clean from the hair.

It is convenient to hold the vacuum cleaner with one hand, the handle has a special anti-slip rubber insert with a divider for the index finger.

  • Portable Polaris PVCS 0922HR: start the device by pressing and holding 2 for the power button
Instead of the trigger, the manufacturer applied a touch button with a protection against accidental pressing on the front side - you need to hold it for 2 seconds to turn it on. It is much more convenient than the trigger used by other manufacturers, which must be constantly pressed to operate the vacuum cleaner. At the same time to turn off the vacuum cleaner here is quite short pressing the button.

When connecting the nozzles should be careful, because all parts fit tightly, and any misalignment may make insertion difficult.

Portable vacuum cleaner Polaris PVCS 0922HR: the bottom of the filter provides for the opening of the bottom part for emptying it from debris and dust. Rubber seal is very tight.
The design of the flask of the dust collector has an open bottom, which means it is possible to dump the garbage into the bag without disconnecting the nozzles. But if you press the catch and turn the cylinder of the flask, you can remove it completely and just empty the garbage from the glass. However, the cyclone filter itself, rigidly mounted on the vacuum cleaner housing, also requires cleaning. You can do this by gently tapping on it with your palm, substituting a garbage bag under it. It is in the lower part of the cyclone that a lot of fine dust is collected.

Nozzles and nuances of their application

The nozzle with an electric brush is mounted on a very flexible hinge, which allows you to freely change direction and control its course, providing cleaning in hard-to-reach places. This contributes to the relatively small height of the brush. At its front there is a small rubber bumper that will protect the furniture from scratches and prevent damage to the body of the nozzle itself. But in the back of the manufacturer did not provide for the bumper, and therefore need to be careful with the elements of the furniture during the return movement.

Note that the manufacturer does not recommend brushing long-pile carpets with this brush, and also warns that hair screwed onto the brush can adversely affect the quality of its work and further cleaning. The shaft with a soft high bristle which is built in it can be quickly taken, having clicked a special clamp, and to clean. During intermediate cleaning it is better not to use water, because It takes a long drying brush.

The option is very convenient and allows you to better see the cleaning area, dust accumulation and more efficiently manage the brush in dimly lit parts of the room.

The set also includes a multifunctional nozzle 3 in 1: with a long-haired brush for carpets and bedspreads, with a short nap for furniture and a crevice for hard-to-reach places. They can be used by connecting directly to a vacuum cleaner or through a pipe.

The most useful, in our opinion, the nozzle with a length of bristles, which can be cleaned everything, including home appliances. Therefore, I would like more flexibility, a change in the angle of inclination, a denser and longer bristle, etc. But alas, the attachment is hard, the inclination is not adjustable, and its mounting is somewhat flimsy.

Real time with and without electric brush

Polaris indicates that the battery should last for about 25 minutes of cleaning with the electric brush turned on and 40 minutes without it. Our copy turned out to be more durable and honestly worked with a brush for 35 minutes, and without a brush it was enough for 45 minutes. We turned it off forcibly after the charge indicator began to flash. The time of the first battery charge was 5 hours, the second - 3 hours 10 minutes. After the end of the charge, the indicator stops flashing and goes out.

In the instructions for the Polaris PVCS 0922HR manufacturer recommends that you do not interrupt the charging process and always charge the battery completely. The same applies to the discharge - discharge completely and then put on charge. Such recommendations are usually given for Ni-Mh batteries in order to avoid the memory effect and reduce the battery capacity. But in our model, a Li-Ion battery is used, which should allow the use of both incomplete charging and incomplete discharge. Therefore, the manufacturer's recommendations look strange.

No noise and no dust

We tested the work of the Polaris PVCS 0922HR portable vacuum cleaner on various surfaces, including laminate, linoleum, short nap carpet and medium nap carpet. We were pleasantly surprised by the very high quality of cleaning: there was not a single speck of dust on the floor surface.

For clarity, we even spent on it with a cotton pad - vacuum cleaner clean. Also brush perfectly coped with the mats in the bathroom and hallway. So clean, we cleaned only the famous outdoor models of vacuum cleaners.

Since Absorption power of this model is not high - 60 W. Obviously, the use of a rotating electrical brush is a decisive factor in ensuring cleanliness. By the way, it was the low suction power that allowed us to comfortably vacuum the mats, which did not stick, did not rise, and remained in their places.

It is worth emphasizing, because of the not very high suction power, heavy particles in the form of sand and small pebbles in the deep pile of the mats can get stuck, therefore, for thorough cleaning it is possible to use more powerful outdoor vacuum cleaners.

Note that this model uses a dust collector with the technology "multicyclone" with a three-stage cleaning system. When air is sucked in with collected debris and dust, a vortex flow is created, in which centrifugal force precipitates the dust particles into a special chamber, where they are separated from the air and thrown to the cyclone walls. This ensures stable operation of the engine during the entire cleaning process. The suction force of a vacuum cleaner remains constant regardless of the degree of filling of the dust collector.

The use of a HEPA filter is also important here, which guarantees almost complete cleaning of dust and microorganisms of air emitted into the room. After cleaning, we considered a fine filtration system - the main pollution accumulated only on the foam rubber ring, the HEPA filter remained clean.

I also liked the sound of the vacuum cleaner, which was surprisingly not annoying: not very loud and not too high. Perhaps this is one of the most comfortable noise that we have heard from the tested vacuum cleaners. Although we had a model of a robot vacuum cleaner on the test, by the way also from the company Polaris PVCR 0920WV (you can read about it in our review), which at work made a soft sound, like a puppy whine. But this is a slightly different technique.

Dyson V10 Cyclone Absolute

Polaris PVCS 0922HR portable vacuum cleaner test: comfortable cleaning in 30 minutes. The Dyson V10 Cyclone Absolute charged battery lasts long enough to finish cleaning the apartment. It’s convenient to handle the vacuum cleaner, and the weight is so well balanced that it doesn’t cause any muscle pain.

The only drawbacks are the extremely high cost - about 45,000 rubles, unpleasant noise at high power and a couple of minor annoying shortcomings.
