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!

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.

An unhappy customer, purchased 5/1/13 from Brookstone.com

      The first time I used the Air Ram, it only took 5 minutes to go over my living room carpet, and the container was full! Needless to say, I needed to go over it several times. I have back problems, and this was very easy to use....no strain on my muscles. I was amazed, too, at how easy it was to manipulate and go under furniture. AND NO CORD!!! WONDERFUL!!! So glad I saw the AD on my homepage and took the chance. No longer will I dread vacuuming.

        I find myself vacuuming oftener due to ease of use. I have one at my home and purchased one for our cabin, which keeps the entry way free of grass and dirt. I have told my friends and family this is the best thing since "sliced bread"

            Started great: lightweight, easy to use and manoeuver, relatively quiet. A very convenient vacuum cleaner overall.
            However, it quickly became clear that: (1) it is very messy to clean, the dust spills everywhere once you open the dust compartment, and (2) the "screw" that holds the cover down doesn't last ... The cover now pops up half of the time when I vacuum as it is no longer tightly held down.
            Bottom line: wouldn't recommend.

                        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.
