Dibea F20MAX Features and Specifications
Dibea F20MAX can be used as stick and as handheld unit.
As a stick vacuum cleaner it weighs 5.5 pounds (~2.5 kg) with physical dimensions (W x L x H) of 10.1 x 8.5 x 46.1 inches (256 x 217 x 1172 mm). Unit is very light and can be easily used or carried around even by elderly people.
Conversion from stick to handheld and back may be done quickly with no tools required - just detach the cleaning wand and attach the required cleaning tool to the handheld vacuum.
As a handheld vacuum cleaner, Dibea F20MAX weighs just 3.31 pounds (1.5 kg) - there are lighter handhelds on the market, but there are no many models as strong as this one.
Dibea F20MAX is powered by 8-cell 29.6 volts 2000 mAh lithium ion battery and is rated at 400 watts and 100 Air Watts in the maximum suction mode.
Since maximum suction mode shortens the operating life of the battery, Dibea F20MAX comes with three suction modes:
- Eco mode, blue indicator light, 7 kPa suction, up to 55 minutes of operation,
- Standard mode, purple indicator light, 13 kPa suction, up to 20 minutes of operation,
- Maximum mode, red indicator light, 25 kPa suction, up to 8 minutes of suction.
During the cleaning, user can easily switch from mode to mode and thus optimize battery life and improve the cleaning at the same time.
Battery is detachable and may be charged detached from the unit, or while still being attached. Since Dibea F20MAX comes with the wall mount, many users charge the battery while it is still attached to the vacuum.
But, having detachable battery is great feature, since it allows the user to get another battery, if required and use both of the batteries for longer operating time.
When the battery is discharged, it takes ~3 hours to fully charge it again.
Note: Dibea F20MAX is simple to use and maintain vacuum, but when it arrives, be sure to read the manual thoroughly.
Dirt cup is transparent and features capacity of 0.5 liters - it could be slightly larger, but the dirt cup is emptied easily directly into the trashcan.
Air filtration system is based on the cyclonic action and washable foam/cotton air filter labeled as HEPA air filter.
According to the Dibea, this filter is H10 air filter and the Dibea F20MAX vacuum is able to capture 99.97% of 0.3 microns or larger particles.
This would be great if there is H10 class of air filters - there is E10 filter class (Efficiency Particulate Air (EPA) Filters), but not H10. Maybe they are not referring to EN1822 standard, but to some other ...
Anyway, general opinion among the users is that the air filtration is very good, which is very important for all people, not just for people having issues with asthma and allergies.
One of the interesting things is that Dibea F20MAX comes with the spare filter, allowing the user to wash one air filter and let it completely air dry, while putting another air filter in the unit right away.
Note: never operate ANY vacuum cleaner with moist/wet air filter or no filters at all - such activity may damage the vacuums and render the warranty void.
What's in the Box?
When Dibea F20MAX arrives, its box contains main cleaner head, cleaning wand, handheld unit, mini motorized brush, 2-in-1 bristle brush, crevice tool, wall mount with screws, battery charger, spare air filter and manual.
Again, when the unit arrives, be sure to get accustomed to your new vacuum and read the manual.
Dibea F20MAX Cleaning Tools
Dibea F20MAX features several cleaning tools, helping the user clean both floors and elevated surfaces.
Main Cleaner Head features low profile, motorized brushroll and full swivel neck, making it very maneuverable across various floor types, picking up dirt thoroughly.
Main cleaner head during cleaning pulls slightly forward, helping the user cover larger area easily - if push-pull cleaning is required, it may also be done with no issues.
Having low profile, allows the main cleaner head to reach and clean under beds and sofas.
Brushroll cover is transparent, allowing the user to see brushroll condition - brushroll is designed to reduce hair tangles, but it is up to the user to clean the brushroll from time to time.
To help the user more easily spot the dirt and especially to clean in low light conditions, main cleaner head comes with strong headlights.
Crevice Tool is long and narrow cleaning tool, designed for vacuuming corners, edges, between seats and mattresses and other similar hard-to-reach narrow areas.
2-in-1 Bristle Brush features bristles that help when dusting and for cleaning in general. If required, bristles may be retracted, allowing the user to vacuum using wide mouth cleaning tool (wider than Crevice Tool).
Mini Motorized Brush features mini brushroll and is used for thorough cleaning of mattresses, sofas, beds, car seats, pet beds, stairs, and other similar surfaces.
Since it is narrower than Main Cleaner Head, Mini Motorized Brush can reach areas where main cleaner head can't, helping the user clean home/car/truck/boat more thoroughly.
Brushroll doesn't feature automatic hair removal system and it is up to the user to periodically clean the brushroll.
