Gtech AirRam High-power Cordless Vacuum Cleaner

The AirRAM takes everything you hate about vacuuming...and makes it disappear.


High performance, cordless convenience
AirRam’s revolutionary design ensures high performance on carpet, hardwood and tiled floors whilst giving you all the convenience of being cordless: No more hunting for outlets or tripping over power cords.

Can I really have cordless high performance?
Yes. Many vacuum cleaners waste energy sucking the dirt through long tubes before spinning it around a cyclone. That isn’t very efficient. AirRam has been cleverly designed, only moving the dirt an inch and a half, before collecting it in the head of the vacuum. The AirRAM’s energy efficient design employs a combination of the brush bar, suction power and airflow to lift the dirt from floor or carpet, delivering high performance cordless cleaning throughout the home.

Edge cleaning technology
Some vacuums have a belt drive on one side, which can mean they may not clean as effectively on both sides. AirRam is different, it has a central drive allowing for bristles on both sides of the brush bar, to help you get into those awkward corners.

Ideal for pet hair
AirRam’s powerful rotating brush bars make it ideal for pet hair. AirRam not only picks up surface hair, but also does a great job of lifting troublesome embedded hair from your carpet.

Moves easily
AirRam's revolutionary, lightweight design glides around your home, steering easily from left to right. Move effortlessly from carpet to hard-floors and back again with no setting to change. AirRam has an ultra-low profile, allowing you to reach under chairs and tables. AirRam’s cordless technology means no more fighting with tangled cords or electrical outlets.

Lightweight
Thanks to its revolutionary design, which does away with so many bulky parts, AirRam weighs just 7.7lbs. That’s more than 50% lighter than most leading upright vacuums, making AirRam easy to lift and carry up stairs.

Long run-time, worry-free battery
AirRam’s power comes from a professional-grade Lithium-ion battery and it’s covered by a two year warranty. With its energy efficient design, AirRam gives you up to 40 minutes of cord-free cleaning. That’s enough to clean the average US home on a single 4-hour charge. If you need it, a 1-hour short charge will deliver a burst of additional cleaning time.*
An easy to read, 4-stage LED display indicates how much charge is left in the battery so you won’t be left wondering if you’re going to run out of power.

* Runtimes quoted may vary depending on floor surface cleaned.

Empty with ease
Uniquely, AirRam collects the dirt in the head of the vacuum and compresses it. This has two benefits. Firstly, the bin has enhanced dirt storage capacity. Secondly, it's straightforward to empty: a removable tray lifts out and you just tip the dirt into the trash.

No expensive replacementsAirRam is bagless and it’s fitted with lifetime washable filters, meaning that there are no expensive replacements you need to buy.

I keep the vacuum in the room off the kitchen so it's always handy. It's small so it's easy to tuck out of the way. I only need to charge it once a week and I use it everyday! We cook everyday in our house and we manage to get flour, breadcrumbs, whatever we're working with on the floor somehow, so we need to vacuum the floor in there everyday. I also use it to vacuum at the breakfast bar where the kids eat - it's great on the hardwood! It doesn't 'spit' what it's vacuuming like my high end and much heavier vacuum. It's just easy!

I also find that I get more help around the house from my kids with the cleaning. There's no dragging out the big vacuum, hauling it upstairs to clean their room or downstairs to clean their playroom. This is so lightweight and they find it fun!

The thing I noticed most is all the dirt it sucks up! I never thought my old vacuum wasn't getting my house clean - but it wasn't! The suction is amazing! I really Just can't say enough about this vacuum. Thanks for making such a great product that is easy to use, lightweight and powerful!

Not a substitute for a vacuum clearner

It has no suction therefore the word vacuum to describe the machine is misleading. It is a very noisy sweeper that will not pick up particles like cat litter no matter how many times...Read complete review

It has no suction therefore the word vacuum to describe the machine is misleading. It is a very noisy sweeper that will not pick up particles like cat litter no matter how many times you cover the area. I find that the Eureka The Boss does a better job. If you don't mind a very noisy machine that only picks up hair and some dust then this is for you. It is overprice for what it does.

        Ordered a Gtech, excited to receive it. When I opened the box, no battery, no manual and what I got was a used, dirty, and disgusting vacuum cleaner with dirt and hairs in the brushes and filter! NOW I had to pack it back up and send it back and re-order. VERY disappointed

          The reason I bought the AirRam is because I have an Australian Shepherd and they shed hair 24/7! The AirRam is wonderful for pet hairs. I turn it on and do a quick sweep all over the house anytime, can get clear underneath the beds and chairs without having to use a dustmop first. No cords to plug in and trip over. The AirRam is easy to use, great suction, lightweight. And it's not that noisy as some reviews would have you believe. I love my AirRam and my Aussie.

          Comments about Gtech AirRam High-power Cordless Vacuum Cleaner:

          I have owned an Air Ram for just over 8 months. I have to say, for the investment I made (such a pricey vacuum! Ten times what I've ever paid in the past), I am sorely disappointed in this purchase.

          The Air Ram does well in the areas emphasized in its advertising - it is lightweight and cordless, and it gets into many hard-to-reach places. The weight in particular has been wonderful for me, since I have carpal tunnel.

          Unfortunately it is quite annoying in many other areas, and those have outweighed the benefits. One important thing to note is that there is no suction with this vacuum - it only spins a brush very quickly to pick up.

          Consequently, it is a terrible vacuum for people with long hair. I have very long blonde hair and it wraps around the spinning brush, so much so that every single time I use the vacuum I must get out scissors and clean out the hair. It is stuck in the corners of the spinner to where I can't reach it, also, which I'm sure limits performance. It might be good for short pet hair, but it's AWFUL for human hair!!

          In addition to being unsuitable for households with long hair, it's unsuitable for households with children. My kids primarily require vacuuming of food they drop. The Air Ram isn't great for Cheerios, much less anything bigger or harder. And of course it can't be used on strings or pipe cleaners or beads or anything they commonly would use for a craft. I nearly broke it several times accidentally picking up ornament hooks under our Christmas tree (which are not visible until you hear them rattling around in the spinning brush).

          After about 7 months of use, the top part no longer stayed in place, constantly falling off during use, leading to dust clouds and whatever else you've vacuumed up going everywhere. Even when I empty the vacuum by choice, it makes a huge mess.

          I reached the last straw when it accidentally grabbed some twine the other day and the side of the vacuum popped off! I do everything I can to limit it picking up string, as I know that's awful for it (really, though - such an investment and you make me pre-clean everywhere?). In this case, the twine somehow got in there even though it was up on a high shelf inside a cabinet (I seriously don't know how it happened, but I have young children, and things get shifted and left around sometimes). The twine wrapped so fast and it didn't stop until the front side panel had snapped off. I had to remove the back side screw and loosen the entire apparatus to even get the twine out, it was so wrapped in there.

          I am now afraid of it breaking completely. I won't let the children touch it. It feels flimsy and cheap to me, and I assume it is since parts are breaking off or not sticking in properly anymore (again only after 8 mos of use and I am NOT a daily vacuumer by any stretch!). It doesn't feel any better made than the cheap stick vacs I've bought in the past, and it didn't even last as long as my last cheapo one!

          Honestly spending this much on a vacuum, I am so terribly disappointed at how it's turned out. The weight has been great. For very small, not very dirty jobs - and on dust - it's excellent. I would imagine for a home with no children - maybe just pets - it would be a great vacuum. But don't try to tackle any real messes with it.

          And the fact that it breaks so easily, just from a little twine...and the top not staying put, that's just from normal use...well that's really disappointing.

          I'm sorry I purchased it and I'm MOST sorry that I can't afford to buy anything else for years to come. Spending what I did on it, I assumed it would last me at least a few years. It hasn't even made it ONE.

            This is the BEST vacuum I have ever owned. It does a fantastic job. I love that it is cordless. My rooms are small and I don't have to worry about tripping over a cord like with my old vacuum. It is so light-weight that I can easily carry it upstairs to vacuum those rooms. And, it's very easy to clean. There isn't anything that I do not like about ths vacuum. I LOVE it!

                Comments about Gtech AirRam High-power Cordless Vacuum Cleaner:

                This vacuum is great for quick clean ups and is powerful for its size, however it doesn't compete with more powerful vacuums. This vacuum can rival other battery powered beater brush vacuums, such as the commonly known Shark vacuums and even the smaller Dyson's but not the more powerful vacuums such as a quality central vacuum system. When vacuuming a couch and then gently placing the airram back on the ground it releases a few pieces of dirt, and will do this on occasion, where as vacuums with suction wouldn't. Since there is no hose the vacuum won't be able to reach tighter spaces such as behind or beside a toilet that is close to a wall.

                This vacuum is ideal for appartments where storage space is limited and where less needs to be vacuumed. Then a broom can be used to get in the tighter spaces. However unlike the battery powered Shark vacuums, the airram won't pick up large items such a large crumbs or cereal pieces such as a Cheerio.

                This vacuum is also ideal for quick clean up jobs. If you own one of the battery powered Shark vacuums, throw it away and get this. Those Shark vacuums are not powerful or realiable, the battery is often dead when you need it. The airram will run for up to 60 minutes and has a battery idicator, however the indicator is not very reliable. There are four bars, when all four are lit, the battery is fully charged. Although I had the vacuum run out of power at two lit power bars. The beater brush is significantly more powerful than the Shark vacuums, and provides a much deeper carpet cleaning.

                All in all, it's a great quick clean up vacuum; but don't throw away you're old (corded) vacuum.

                  I use this vacuum almost every day. It is the most versaile vac I have ever purchased and I have purchased many throughout the years. I have a child with significant allergies so I am always vacuuming something. I can grab this vacuum in a second and it will do my whole house carpets and floors. It is a tiny bit heavy but you get used to it quickly. The fact that I do not have the annuity of buying bags and hepa filters all the time is so important to me with all the vacuuming I do. I will admit I do clean the compartment that gets all the dirt quite frequently. I just feel that the vacuum will last longer and perform better if I do. I try and make sure I never put it away dirty and always empty the reservoir. I was skeptical about buying this but am so happy I did and I recommend it to everyone.

                  Powerful suction, no cords, and long charge means I can keep my floors clean no matter how many teenagers and dogs tromp through my house. So easy to use, I don't mind using it daily. Sucks up pet hair great! Just get near the hair and this vacuum sucks it up. Didn't expect that from a rechargeable vac! I primarily have hardwood floors and tile. Also a few low-pile area rugs. Works great on all. I also have two Shelties, teenage daughters with lots of teenage friends. This vacuum is easy enough to use that they'll even use it. It is much noisier than my central vacuum system.
