Gtech Multi cordless vacuum

I’ve never used a cordless vacuum cleaner before, but I’ve been putting the Gtech Multi through its paces.

When it comes to vacuum cleaners, I have long favoured a Henry. Henry is robust, powerful and very, very good at cleaning. He is also heavy and rather cumbersome. There are times, when someone has just walked a bit of mud or grass in, or dropped a biscuit on the floor, when it doesn’t feel worth getting the big heavy hoover out and plugging it in, but you still need to clean up.

That’s where a cordless vacuum cleaner comes in very handy, I’ve discovered!

The Gtech Multi is compact and has nine different cleaning modes and a range of attachments for those quick clean-ups and those hard-to-reach places. It also works on hard and soft surfaces. There’s a crevice tool, which is great for getting really close to skirting boards and in those tight corners, a dusting brush and a hidden flexible hose, to give you that extra stretch, whether you’re reaching up high or getting behind something. The upholstery tool is great for cleaning sofas and car seats, two things which , I must admit, don’t get cleaned as often as they should! Does anyone else plug their vacuum cleaner in in the house, then try to park the car as close as possible to the front door?

The Multi is portable and reasonably lightweight – it’s heavy enough that you feel it’s good quality and will do a proper job. It’s very good for reaching cobwebs, because you’re not limited to how far your cord will stretch from the socket. You can get round all the cobwebs in the house quickly, without having to keep stopping to unplug the vacuum and move it into the next room. There’s even a bright light which shines where you’re cleaning, so there’s no way you will miss that last bit of dust or those last few crumbs.

Because the Gtech Multi isn’t designed to clean the whole house, it holds its charge for 30 minutes, which is plenty of time for those quick clean-ups – or several of them if they’re VERY quick clean-ups. It takes four hours for a full charge, or you can get a quick burst of cleaning energy from a one hour charge.

The Multi doesn’t take a lot of space, so it’s easy to store, and ready to get out whenever you need it.

I’ve never really understood the need for a cordless, portable vacuum cleaner before, but I totally get it now! We will definitely be using it a lot more.

(And the good news is, the kids are quite enjoying the novelty of it. I wonder how long that will last… )

We were sent a Gtech Multi for the purposes of this review. All opinions are our own. Thanks to my daughter for the pictures of me putting it through its paces.

  1. This looks great. I use a cordless daily but after 2 Dysons that are useless, the batteries go after a year or so, this might just what be what I invest in next!

    • That’s really disappointing about the Dyson! I had an upright Dyson years ago because they were the big thing at the time – it lasted about 18 months! I’ve had my Henry 10 years and it’s still going strong.

  2. I like the sound of this. We’ve got a very small cordless vacuum, but it’s actually not very good. I like the idea of a more powerful cordless one.

    • You can definitely feel the power in this one and you can see the dust and cobwebs disappearing in a very satisfactory manner!

    • Thanks! It’s really handy. I love it for skirting boards.

  3. Ooh this looks so good. You should see the state of my car…well, maybe you shouldn’t. It’s an absolute disgrace. We have a dyson which is great but it’s not cordless so it’s such a faff dragging the whole thing outside!

    • Ha ha, I think everyone’s car is a state! This will revolutionise cleaning the car. I might even do it more often now!

  4. I love the sound of house. We (and by we, I mean the husband) have such a problem vacuuming the car as we live in a first floor flat and have a Henry, imagine the faff! I always assumed that would be designed to clean the whole house as well. The issue we would have is storing that as well as our Henry!

    • It must be almost impossible to vacuum the car living in a first floor flat! Storage was one of my concerns, but this is very compact. I just have to make sure we don’t lose all the tools!

  5. I really like the appeal of this and not just because I have noticed a huge cobweb in our bedroom ( I do clean in there, honest). We have a huge round orange vax that must be 16 years old, but it is so heavy. This would be ideal for doing a quick clean and for hoovering the car which happens about twice a year x

  6. I too was sceptical at first but couldn’t be without my Multi now! I was amazed at how much suction comes from a vacuum cleaner so small. It means no more paying 20p for 2 minutes at the garage to vacuum the car. And the multi is also amazing at vacuuming the stairs – no more having to try and balance a heavy vacuum halfway up! Absolutely love mine and use it nearly every day. I also have the Gtech Air Ram K9 as a companion for the Multi and I use that every single day as it’s so much easier and more powerful than my Vax.
