The power packed into this cordless vacuum will surprise you

The idea of doing housework used to leave me feeling cold. But, as I’m edging closer to 30, I’m actually finding some enjoyment in bringing some neat and tidiness to my surroundings. It’s something I wish I’d become adept at much earlier on; imagining the cleanliness of my university room brings a sad smile to my face. Still, the only way is up now that I’m a fully-grown adult.

So, when the team behind the Halo Capsule offered me the opportunity to check out the newest contender in the vacuum market, I jumped at the chance. Honestly, it was a bit embarrassing just how excited I was to get my hands on the product. I’m blaming the last 12 months of on-off lockdown.

One of the first things you should know about the Halo Capsule is that it’s a cordless vacuum. Now, hold your horses. Unlike cordless vacs of the past, this one manages to retain the power and oomph you’d only expect from those that you plug in to use. It was a bold claim but, after putting it to the test, one that the company can make with confidence thanks to the high-performance lithium-ion batteries and brushless digital motors.

As for the capacity? It's got up to five times more than some other models, with the space you would only ever come to expect from a full-size upright.

All your dirt and messy bits are put through highly-efficient filters, which filter 99.95% of particles down to 0.5 microns. This is all done through the dust pouches, which give you an environmentally-friendly way to clean from home, having been made from natural materials and being compostable.

My biggest gripe with the vacuum is that it cannot stand upright unaided. You’re not always going to be in a space where it’s easy to place it flat on the floor whilst you give your arm a rest or manoeuvre around furniture. It also means that when you come to the end of your spring cleaning, it’s a little more difficult to put it away discreetly.

This of course can be combated with the Capsule Wall Dock which is quick and easy to attach to your wall; it even connects to your existing charger to ensure that your vacuum is always ready to go at a moment’s notice. The wall dock includes accessory clips, so that the brush and tube ends of the Halo Capsule can be stored alongside the vacuum itself. 

Plus, as it’s made with carbon fibre, the Halo Capsule comes in at just 2.6kg, making it an ultra-light addition to the market. (It’s also a super good-looking machine in a sleek grey).

Though it at first sounded too good to be true, the Halo Capsule is certainly one to watch for in 2021. We imagine we’ll be hearing a lot more from the company in the coming months and years, as they give the industry’s leading brands a run for their money.
