Enhanced performance

Most vacuums suck the dirt through long hoses and tubes, which can become blocked easily. The HyLite collects the dirt just 1 cm from the floor, and this shorter airpath reduces blocking.

Perfection through innovation

"Gtech have designed the HyLite for homes of the future. The HyLite is built to be speedy, durable and easy to use. It cleans fast and well, and runs efficiently, using hardly any power. It's low maintenance, with simple dust disposal and storage. The Gtech HyLite takes us into our new age of vacuuming..."

Why choose a bagged vacuum?

6 reasons to try a bagged vacuum

1

You still get the same performance cleaning versus a bagless vacuum, but they’re more efficient because they don’t have a cyclone bin that uses additional power.

2

Bags used to be expensive and were a pain to buy. With Gtech, you can enjoy affordable replacement bags that can be delivered straight to your home. A pack of 15 costs just £12.99 and will last for over a year.

3

There are no dirty filters to clean or replace - just a bag (that acts as a filter) that you simply remove and throw away when full. Plus, our bags are triple layered to filter and trap dirt, and rip resistant to reduce the risk of a dust cloud, making a bagged vacuum more hygienic and perfect for allergy sufferers.

4

Our breathable bags are more environmentally friendly, as there is no need to use a plastic bag each time you empty your vacuum like you would with a bagless vacuum.

5

Household dirt contains grease, so it sticks to plastic surfaces and builds up inside bagless vacuums over time. With a bagged vacuum, the dirt container is re-lined with a clean bag every time you change it, helping it last longer.

6

Council tips are full of bagless vacuum cleaners that have not been taken care of, as they often require more time and effort to maintain. That’s the problem with over complicated technology operating in a dirty environment - if you don’t look after it properly, it doesn’t last very long.

Triple layered bags designed to last

Our triple layered bags deliver an impressive enhanced capacity, with the vacuum’s airflow compressing the dust and debris so that each bag can actually hold up to 3 times its volume of dirt. The 3 layers are designed to be robust and rip resistant, helping you clean with confidence and offering simpler disposal.

Average home use is 7-15 bags a year. Replacement bags are available to order online for only £12.99 per pack of 15.

Luxuriously light

When you first experience the HyLite, it's hard to believe that such a lightweight product can deliver outstanding cleaning performance. Lifting and carrying the HyLite is effortless. The handle extends at the touch of a button and instantly retracts to store away in a drawer. Cleaning your home has never been easier.

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 and how can Nick ‘promise you will never have experienced this much cleaning power in such an easy to use package’?

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’ and why is the HyLite 'brimming with cleaning performance'?

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.

As the HyLite’s light weight is one of its main features, we talk about its cleaning performance per gram of weight. This is essentially taking the average cleaning performance percentage (as mentioned above) and dividing it by the weight of the HyLite. We’ve done this for competitor vacuums, too - you can see the HyLite and competitor vacuum results here. It ranks the highest, hence we say it is ‘brimming with performance’.

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 of our floorcare products in accordance with IEC standards (international guidelines that all floorcare manufacturers have to follow). The HyLite’s average runtime is up to 20 minutes.

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.

Low maintenance living

Low maintenance living

The HyLite is a modern product for busy lifestyles. There are no filters or bins to clean out and, because the dirt is kept in the floor head, there are no tubes or hoses to get blocked up. The HyLite saves you time and lets you get back to what’s important.

Hylite Features

Versatile cleaning

The HyLite’s telescopic handle extends and retracts instantly for intuitive cleaning. It can be removed in seconds, transforming this lightweight upright into a cordless handheld cleaner. With the freedom of flexible movement, this lightweight rechargeable vacuum cleaner offers proven cleaning performance in both upright and handheld mode. The HyLite instantly adapts to floor surfaces, upholstery and stairs - all with no settings or sockets to change thanks to the convenience of cordless.

Hylite Features

Simple storage

In upright mode, the HyLite stands up on its own, but its super telescopic handle and compact size means you can store it anywhere. Wherever you keep it, this cordless vacuum cleaner is ready for action in seconds. Simply extend the handle, or easily remove it, and you’re ready to clean. Our handy storage bag is also available to keep your HyLite safely packed away - whether in a drawer or hung on the back of a door - for just £9.99.

Hylite Features

Keeping a low profile

The Gtech HyLite features a low profile, reclining handle so that you can reach under sofas and beds. Its manoeuvrability makes it so easy to clean around your home without worrying about moving heavy furniture. Make cleaning more enjoyable with this portable vacuum and embrace the convenience of bagged cleaning.

What people are saying about the Gtech HyLite

Controlling the Gtech HyLite is a breeze – it’s super easy to weave from spot to spot. When it comes to the Gtech’s different modes, retracting the handle into its smaller form is smooth and simple.

The HyLite uses triple-layered, 0.3-litre dust bags that are ‘robust and rip resistant’. These act as a filter for fine particles, too, which means when you replace them you are effectively cleaning the filters as well, saving on maintenance jobs. This could be handy, as some rivals require you to remove and wash the filter, before leaving it to dry for up to 48 hours.

Aiming for sucksess: The 3lb vacuum cleaner that's so tiny it fits in a kitchen drawer.

Great addition to my Gtech family. What an awesome little hoover. Highly recommend for its flexibility, its lightness to use, still very powerful despite being small.
