This is the improvement I was waiting for. I always thought the battery life was the biggest issue with their cordless machines. 40 minutes puts it on par with my gtech airram. The screen scraper is also a neat idea, I have to clean the screen on my dc59 frequently.
I know the cordless machines are somewhat controversial for many of the members on here, for me personally they are the only current machines dyson make that I am interested in purchasing. This does make me glad I didn't buy a v6 absolute!
Overall, love the battery life, like the bin, like the new max switch, the color is iffy, and I HATE that they changed the tool socket.
Parwaz, thanks for bringing this to our attention!
Still waiting on that year-and-a half-old robot lol!
