Thinking about purchasing a Proscenic i10 Cordless Vacuum Cleaner? If you’re looking for an honest review, you’ve come to the right place.
Our intrepid UK Mums testing team put the Proscenic i10 Cordless Vacuum Cleaner to the test.
What The Manufacturer Says About The Proscenic i10
From a detachable battery and flexible charging methods, to an LED display that shows the machine’s current status. Here are the features that Proscenic boast about their i10 cordless vacuum cleaner.
Powerful Suction for Thorough Cleaning
Empowered by a high-efficient 350W motor, this model can generate a high rotation speed of 10000 rpm. Plus large suction of up to 25000 Pa, to effectively deep-clean any stubborn dirt and dust on the surface.
Super Long Run Time
With 2200-mAh large-capacity batteries installed, the i10 can run continuously for a maximum of 50 minutes. Sufficient for cleaning the entire house in one go without needing to recharge or change the battery.
LED Touch Display
A LED touch screen with a high-resolution interface is built on the top of the main unit. This allows users to easily change working modes and be immediately notified of information about the machine’s current status. Including the battery levels and error alerts.
The machine has an advanced infrared sensor designed and installed on the brush head. Its suction power will automatically and intelligently boost to the highest once carpets are detected. This ensures it will effectively remove tough dirt or dust.
Once finishing cleaning carpets, it will return to the normal suction level to avoid battery draining.
Detachable Battery and Flexible Charging Methods
The battery of the Proscenic i10 Cordless Vacuum Cleaner is detachable. Run time can be further extended by having a second battery ready.
Besides, the machine can either be charged through the charging base or take out the battery to charge separately.
What Our Tester Thinks About The Proscenic i10
We gave Viv, our UK Mums TV tester, a Proscenic i10 to test out.
We asked that she give as honest review as possible. Here’s what she thought.
What’s In The Box
There were 3 tools/accessories supplied with the Proscenic i10 vacuum
- floor broom
- long flat nozzle
- round suction tip
The power rating for this vacuum is 380W which is quite enough for the majority of the time. However, there are times when a little bit more power and suction would be helpful.
Ease of Use
Both the long flat nozzle and round tip were ideal for using on furniture, in the car or in tight little areas when fitted straight into the vacuum itself, rather than onto the extension pole.
When fitted into the extension pole, it was easy to reach those out-of-the-way places, such as the ceiling to remove cobwebs and dust with them.
It was very light and manouverable, which meant that it was easy to use. It’s ideal for those little jobs when you don’t really want to get a big heavy vacuum out.
It’s perfect for using on the stairs too. We used it without the extension pole. There was no need for a heavy upright or balancing a cylinder with one hand.
We also liked that it switched power mode between the different flooring surfaces independently.
It was also easy to use around and underneath furniture.
How Easy Was it to Empty The Vacuum Cleaner?
Being bagless, it is easy to empty and clean out which we tend to do each time we use it.
Removing and replacing the dust container was tricky at first. But this was probably due to a combination of it being new and used by arthritic hands!
Battery Charge and Run Time
The battery charge is stated as 2.5 hours for a full charge to give a 50 minute run time. Apparently more than long enough to clean a whole house!
In my experience, it took 2-3 hours each time to fully charge the battery. But did not do a complete run of the house before the battery ran out.
Just for clarity, we live in a regular 3 bed semi-detached house. We have laminate flooring and rugs downstairs and conventional carpets upstairs.
Cleaning Ability of the Proscenic i10 Cordless Vacuum Cleaner
The Proscenic i10 Cordless Vacuum Cleaner was very good on the laminate flooring and close nap carpet/rug. And we particularly liked the lights on the vacuum head so that we could see if we had missed anything!
It did a good job on the thicker carpets too, although it quickly drained the battery.
It was very quiet on lowest setting and was not over-noisy on the top setting.
Value For Money
The Proscenic i10 is being sold for £139.00 on Amazon. This is a fair price but as I would never replace my old conventional-style vacuum with a cordless model. With that in mind, this does seem a bit pricey for a back-up.
Final Thoughts on The Proscenic i10 Cordless Vacuum Cleaner
The attachments need to be stored in a cupboard/drawer as they cannot be fixed to the cleaner itself.
This isn’t a problem if you have a dedicated cleaning space. But for those of us who can lose everything at the drop of a hat (and have difficulty in remembering things in the first place!) this can be a bit of a nuisance.
I wouldn’t be able to use it for a full clean of the house in one go. It is neither powerful enough (on the upstairs carpets it switches to top power which drains the battery very quickly). And the battery doesn’t last long enough.
However, it is ideal as a back-up for a conventional upright or cylinder vacuum. It is great for those minor messes which don’t need a big vacuum. Or for a quick run round to keep the main living area clean and tidy.
I would also recommend recharging the battery after using it each time. This would make sure that it is ready for action in the future.
If you are looking for a cordless vacuum then I would recommend this – it was excellent for what we need it for and did the job well.
