The battery-powered VC 5 Cordless requires neither a power cable that gets in the way, nor a separate device that drags behind, making snagging and replugging in the cable a thing of the past. Vacuuming has never been so convenient or enabled so much freedom of movement. Its powerful 18 V lithium-ion battery lasts for up to 40 minutes. The VC 5 Cordless can be telescopically compacted for simple storage or while charging, thanks to the patented triple-telescope system. The strong performance of the VC 5 Cordless is thanks to a highly efficient emission-free motor, as well as the switchable Kärcher floor nozzle. The nozzle was developed specially for this device and consumes very little power, using its particularly compact design and special air channel to produce maximum power. For optimum cleaning results on all hard floors and carpets. A further highlight is the bagless filter systemwith integrated filter cleaning, which saves on expensive replacement filter bags. The filter box can be removed easily, ensuring rapid filter emptying.
