Recently upgraded my Dyson v7 to a Dyson v11 after the battery ran out. The v11 has a larger bin, stronger suction, and swappable batteries.1


  • v11 absolute vs torque - only difference is soft roller attachment, which you can buy on eBay separately
  • v11 torque vs animal - animal is missing the LCD screen and auto-detect mode

  1. Swappable batteries were introduced mid year, so not all models include them. Those bought off Dyson all have them, but if you’re buying used you’ll want to look for a red switch on the bottom of the battery indicating it can be removed easily. Other Dysons have replaceable batteries, but they require a screwdriver so you can’t do it intraday. ↩︎
