Say hello to the new and improved HyLite 2. High-performance, yet incredibly lightweight, this compact vacuum is ideal for all-round cleaning. It easily transforms from an upright to a handheld, folding down in seconds for easy storage, with a detachable dusting brush for floor-to-ceiling cleaning.
- Upright & Handheld Vacuum
- Lightweight at 1.6kg
- Low Maintenance, Hygienic Cleaning
- Compact Vacuum for Easy Storage
- Includes Duster Attachment
The secret to the HyLite 2’s ease of use is in the design. The rotating brush bar makes it ideal for removing stubborn dirt from a variety of surfaces, and as the HyLite 2 collects dirt just 1cm from the floor, there are no long hoses to block. The powered brush head now features Gtech's unique AirLOC Technology too, picking up large debris as you push the vacuum forwards, and sucking up embedded dust and fine dirt on the backstroke.
Lightweight Small Vacuum Cleaner
The HyLite 2 glides across the floor with ease with its specially designed wheels, and being so lightweight, lifting and carrying our mini vacuum is virtually effortless. The handle extends at the touch of a button and instantly retracts to use in handheld mode or to store away, small enough to fit in a drawer. Cleaning your home has never been easier.
Grab and Go with this Mini Vacuum
Designed for modern living, the Gtech HyLite 2 is perfect for quick clean-ups around the home. It's ready for action in seconds - simply extend the handle, or easily remove it, and you’re good to go.
Use your HyLite battery and charger with the Gtech ProLite (body only) to create the perfect, lightweight cleaning system. With a crevice nozzle and dusting attachment, the ProLite can be used on stairs, upholstery and in the smallest of spaces. The additional handheld cleaner is the perfect companion to your upright HyLite or HyLite 2.
Eliminate the dust cloud…
Fused together at the top and sides, our hygienic vacuum bags are robust. They can retain dirt without tearing during disposal, so you can avoid the dust cloud when emptying, and keep your home dust-free.
Enhanced cleaning capacity…
To ensure you get the most use out of each bag, the airflow continually pushes dirt down into the bag as you vacuum. Plus, the pleats in the bags increase their dust capacity (holding more than you might think), meaning you can go longer without having to change them. You get the same cleaning performance as a bagless vacuum, but with extra efficiency due to not having a cyclone bin, which uses additional power.
Triple-layered filter bag…
The HyLite's vacuum bags are made up of three breathable layers which filter different grades of dust and debris. This helps the HyLite's airflow to compress dirt more efficiently, giving you maximum capacity and durability. Each bag essentially acts as a filter, trapping dirt and dust, meaning you're getting a fresh clean every time you use a new bag - convenient and hygienic cleaning in one.
How long will the bag last?
The number of bags you’ll use depends on how many people live in your home, whether or not you have children and pets, and your general cleaning regime. Average homes, where cleaning is done 3 times a week, use just 7-15 bags a year. You'll get 4 bags included FREE with your HyLite 2, and an extra pack of 15 replacement bags costs just £12.99.
Compact vacuum cleaner
In upright mode, our small vacuum cleaner stands up on its own. But its super telescopic handle and compact size mean you can store it anywhere. Keep your HyLite 2 protected in our Storage Bag whilst in a drawer or on a shelf, or use the drawstring handles to hang it from the back of a door, available for just £9.99.
Nowhere for dirt to hide
The HyLite 2's manoeuvrability allows you to clean your whole home with ease. With its low-profile, reclining handle, you can easily reach under furniture, leaving no space untouched. LED lights at the front of the power head will light the way, ensuring there are no dark corners for dirt and dust to hide.
With the lightweight detachable duster, you can reach up high for cobwebs, around furniture, behind TV and computer screens and between cabinets. The duster comes with a clip that neatly attaches it to your vacuum as a simple storage solution.
Easy to use
Our compact vacuum cleaner is built for busy lifestyles as there are no filters or bins to clean out. Just pop in a bag, and throw away when full. It's as simple as that!
Create the perfect lightweight combination with the addition of our ProLite handheld vacuum, weighing just 1kg*. Enhance your handheld cleaning even further with the ProLite Accessory Kit (available to purchase as an optional extra for £50), including a Power Brush Head, Flexible Hose Attachment, and wall mount for simple storage.±

This section explains how we calculate the claims we make in our advertising. Where we can, we test our products in accordance with IEC guidelines using standard IEC62885-2 - these are official international standards for comparing vacuum cleaners. If there are no suitable test standards, we use real homes and record real-life data. Data sample size varies - we test in at least 10 different households and up to 50 if it is practical to do so. Finally, if neither of the above is suitable, we will set up laboratory testing to try and replicate real-life usage.
Why do Gtech believe the HyLite is the smallest, most compact high performance vacuum cleaner in the world?
While it’s not practical to check every vacuum cleaner on sale in every store in every country, we do believe this to be true based on our research. We’ve searched the internet for ‘compact’, ‘small’ and ‘light’ vacuums - the HyLite was more compact and lighter than any we could find. We monitor new launches and work with international retailers, so we’re always aware of the latest products on the market.
We also checked all the vacuum cleaners sold in key UK channels - Argos, John Lewis and Currys. There aren’t any lighter, smaller or more compact vacuums than the Gtech HyLite and they all (apart from our own AirRam models) incorporate long tubes.
Our engineers are all highly skilled and experienced - they regularly visit trade fairs and factories to keep up to date with the state of the art in the vacuum cleaner industry. With over 80 years of vacuum cleaner development under their belt, our product design team work hard to ensure everything we manufacture is built for modern homes and lifestyles.
Can you prove that 'the HyLite's shorter airpath reduces blocking?
We have considered all the main, ‘state of the art’ vacuum cleaner construction methods currently used in our industry. Surprisingly, very few manufacturers attempt to make vacuum cleaners compact or shorten the airpath.
Many of our competitors’ manuals/ product guides instruct users to check the tubes (particularly the bends) for blockages if performance reduces. As the HyLite doesn’t have long tubes or any bends, we can be confident that this problem will not be present with the HyLite.
What do Gtech consider to be a ‘high performance vacuum cleaner?
There are internationally agreed methods (IEC standards) of measuring vacuum cleaner performance on carpets, hard floors and hard floors with deep crevices. We consider products with a cleaning width of at least 250mm (10 inches), which achieve an average score of at least 60% across the 3 tests, to be ‘high performance. You can see performance results of the HyLite and competitor vacuums here
What makes the HyLite battery ‘professional grade?
It’s important to us that we use the best possible components in our products. That’s why we’ve gone for Samsung Lithium-ion batteries - they’re reliable and robust, two of the most important elements for professional users.
How do Gtech test the HyLite's runtime?
We test all our floorcare products in accordance with IEC standards (international guidelines that all floorcare manufacturers have to follow). The HyLite achieved an average runtime of 20 minutes 27 seconds when tested on 50% hard laminated floor and 50% 10mm pile carpet which is what we believe best represents a real home. You can see the performance results of the Hylite here
The HyLite’s runtime will be a bit longer when the bag starts to fill up and when you use it in handheld mode. This is because there’s less air resistance and strain across the vacuum’s fan, so less power is needed. The runtime may be slightly shorter if you’re only cleaning carpet, especially if it has a thick pile.
What do Gtech mean by ‘low profile?
The HyLite is specially designed to clean underneath furniture and in areas that some other, bigger vacuum cleaners can’t reach. At just 70mm high, and with a reclining, telescopic handle, you can easily reach under most sofas and beds with the HyLite.
∆AirLOC Technology is patent-pending - WO2017/144922.
*HyLite weight = 1kg in handheld mode; 1.6kg in upright mode. ProLite weight = 1kg when working with dusting brush or crevice tool.
**Runtimes quoted may vary depending on surfaces cleaned.
± Care is needed when cleaning along skirting boards and delicate surfaces to avoid scuffing.
