Dyson DC44 Animal battery
« on: January 17, 2017, 09:00:25 PM »
So I believe the runtime is 20 mins (on normal mode) and 17 mins with a motorised head and then 8 mins on max.

Mine? It got a runtime of about 12 mins on normal mode and 5 secs on max!

Now, mine is the later model because the battery is held in by 2 screws rather than a button

Do you reckon it needs a new battery or motor unit? It has no safety switch for the filter BTW

Thanks ;)
DC14s are tanks, just need a slightly longer motor life. Do plastic parts often break on DC14s? Nope. DC41- Sexy looking futuristic and powerful machine. Just needs a better designed cleaner head wheel and cyclone clip along with a dense metal rod in the chassis.

Battery

Yep. They are not much cop.

However, check both outputs on the charger first.

Cheers both
The charger seems to work just like my DC30/34/35 ones I had in the past and the light goes off after a few hours so I presume (going by that) it works flawlessly

Will try a new battery tho thanks :thumbsup:

That's a point, make sure both outputs are working from charger.

Dont assume, test both outputs. If one is down it won't charge fully.
