Okay, thank you very much for your help!
On batteries, do I read that correctly as built in obsolescence?

So I checked and nothing will adapt the 967522-01 to the DC25. You want a 966600-01 as I first thought.
I love it when people take the time to thank you.....

Ok thanks,
Dubious about using the pattern batteries, mainly due to having experience with the 3750 cells they use.
In the past i have come across some of these type cells, namely ULTRAFIRE brand - fire in the name being the clue !
Seen them swell, glow and explode.

I have split many "knackered" batteries packs, removed the individual cells, gave them away to the lads in our sea fishing club (we use the fenix cree headlamps mainly) and these use the same individual cells as dyson packs.

In the last couple of years i have failed to find a bad 3750 cell in a dyson battery pack, so i suspect in my case the control pcb has some form of logical charge counter. (old panasonic toughbooks) cf27 model batteries have similar design and again with them all the cells were ok. On the battery casing there is a ps2 type connector leading to a populated pcb, so i suspect the battery pack counter can be reset ?
The dyson cells in the past were samsung 2200Mah or 2.2 amps at a nominal 3.75v - i discharged mine fully / safely in a housing cradle i purchased from china - then recharged 2 cells in a nitecore standalone charger with no issues on charge or discharge.
Very good quality cells actually, myself i use even better panasonic cells.

Worries me when i see shops with battery recycling boxes full, with the potential to short circuit / catch fire ?

Future quotes from myself to customers will be for a genuine battery now i think, as for the head i will give the option for a pattern or original, i will run the pattern stu and claire are sending me on my own v6.

Filters i will have a look at prices etc, but prob go for original as i dont like call backs...

A DC75 is cool, Id recommend a DC41 mk2 or DC55 instead as they have a filter to protect the motor, they have the same performance and suction and the DC41/55 has slightly better airflow actually due to the less restricted airpaths

anyone tried the battery and filters ?

Filters are OK if you get the right ones. Many fall out.  :snivel:

Batteries is a minefield. We've tested some for Q and it's 50/50 - not good enough to retail. I've spoke to the Chinese on it and margin -v- hassle/return/failure factor is not good enough. We only sell genuine batteries - but they fail too.  :'(
