Here is what Mandy had to say about the GTech Hylite:

“I love trying out new, modern products and the GTech HyLite was one I could not wait to try out. When the cordless vacuum cleaner arrived in the office, I could not believe there was actually a vacuum cleaner in the box as it was so small and compact. Once I had opened up the box I saw all the pieces I needed to put the vacuum together alongside a set of handy instructions.

I followed the assembly instructions which were simple to follow. I clicked all of the pieces into place and before I knew it I had a fully assembled cordless vacuum cleaner. The GTech HyLite is very lightweight as it only weighs around 1.5kg which I was impressed with as no-one wants to have to pull around a heavy vacuum cleaner. I put this on charge and it took around 2 hours to get a full charge but this gave me a run time of 20 minutes and I have to say it was enough time to hoover the rooms I needed to.

The GTech wasn’t noisy and it picked up any dirt on the carpet with ease and the handle was also adjustable so I could move this up and down to suit the height I needed. Emptying out the bag was not hard at all, I removed the battery as per the instructions, lifted the bag camber lid, turned it on it’s back, unhooked the end of the bag, removed it and then I was able to throw out the old bag and replace with a new bag.

Now the next feature is one of my favourites of the GTech HyLite, I could have the vacuum cleaner in handheld mode! I detached the handle and this gave me the handheld mode. I could easily clean the stairs or head up to the car and clean it out, although I was extra careful to watch the brushes as these do still move.

The GTech also had an battery indicator which was a ‘G’ letter, this was green when it was fully charged and it would go orange when the GTech needed a re-charge.

Overall I was really impressed with the GTech HyLite vacuum cleaner, it removed all of the dirt, was lightweight and ideal for storing away, I will be using this over and over again and definitely recommending it to my family and friends.”

The GTech HyLite can be bought online at GTech and Amazon.
