There is a big evolution of vacuum cleaner worldwide. Recently, the popular vacuum cleaner in Japan is the cordless stick vacuum cleaner but there is a new vacuum cleaner series which is proposed by Toshiba, "VC - NX" series. It is a canister type cordless vacuum cleaner. Beside the easy operability, the vacuum cleaner is also convenient with the cordless function. It is the next-generation vacuum cleaner that combines all the advantage of high suction power, longer performance time, and easy to use.

What? Higher revolution than the airplane?! Newly developed motor with maximum speed of 120,000 rpm (revolutions per minute).


One of the attractive advantage of the "VC-NX" series is the high suction power of the newly developed "High Speed DC Motor HD 4". It has the ultra-high-speed rotation of 120,000rpm which is higher than the jet engine which is used for airplanes. Therefore, this motor has the capability to supply the high suction power to the vacuum cleaner “VC-NX” Series. Furthermore, since the body has a built-in large capacity lithium ion battery pack, it can be used up to 60 minutes even though it is cordless.

520g! only? Can you imagine how light it is?


If you manage to try it, for sure you will be surprised by the lightness of the vacuum head. When you grip the vacuum head for cleaning, the weight on your grip is only about 520g. Besides, since the vacuum head is equipped with "Reactor Power Head" with self-propelled function, you can use the vacuum cleaner lightly and easily. It is also convenient to be lifted up and brought together. Since it is a cordless vacuum cleaner, you can move freely and do not need to take care of the power cord. It is also surprising light since the handle of the main body is movable.

The best vacuum cleaner that could clean up itself


A model of this series, "VC - NXS 1" comes with a "dust station" which could collect the garbage from the vacuum cleaner. After finish using the vacuum cleaner, you can just connect it to the "dust station" which comes together with the battery charging function and all the garbage will be transferred into the “dust station” automatically. Therefore, it is not necessary for you to clean the filter so frequent. The suction power could be maintained in good condition by using the “dust station” because the filter will be cleaned every time you connect the vacuum cleaner to the “dust station”.
