Review Deik 2 in 1 Cordless Lightweight Vacuum Cleaner

Founded in 1965 Deik the company has for the most part been flying under the radar in the US home care appliance market. Deik manufactures a line of home care products that include coffee makers, juicers, steamers, mixers, vacuum cleaners, etc.

Deik performs in-depth studies of lifestyles in North America and Europe to develop affordable products that meet the demands of the markets. A quick search of amazon for Deik products reveals almost every Deik product receives impressively high customer review ratings.

The Deik 2 in 1 Cordless Vacuum Cleaner was designed to be an affordable alternative to the popular higher priced brand name
cordless stick vacuums. The Deik Vacuum Cleaner 2 in 1 Cordless offers versatility and good cleaning performance.

Deik 2-in-1 Cordless Bagless Stick and Handheld Vacuum Cleaner is compact, lightweight and versatile vacuum cleaner. It is powered with powerful lithium ion battery, providing both good suction and good operating time. Unit comes with several interesting and often very important features, making it one of the most potent units in its class.

Product Specifications:
Deik 2-in-1 Cordless Bagless Stick and Handheld Vacuum Cleaner is powered via 22.2V 2200 mAh lithium ion battery, providing up to 30 minutes of fade-free power.

Unit weighs 5.1 pounds (2.32 kg) and is light enough to be used even by elderly people and kids (under supervision of adults, of course).

Handheld unit is detachable via simple press of the button and can be used to clean elevated surfaces, including furniture, cars, upholstery, book shelves etc.

As a stick unit, this Deik vacuum is very maneuverable around the furniture. Thanks to the 90° main cleaning head swivel, unit can reach under the furniture and other objects.

As a stick vacuum, main cleaning nozzle is 6.7″ (17 cm) wide and is equipped with rotating brush and LED headlights. Rotating brush help clean carpets, especially low-pile and up-to-the-point, medium-pile carpets. High-pile carpets are not the best surface for this vacuum – or any vacuum of this size and strength, since high-pile carpets require stronger rotating brushes and much stronger suction.

Rotating brush does very good job when cleaning dust, crumbs and similar debris. Also, it help clean short human and pet hair, but it can have issues with longer pet and human hair, since there is no automatic hair cutter of any kind.
Fortunately, rotating brush can be removed from the unit and cleaned when required.

To improve cleaning as a handheld unit, Deik comes with crevice nozzle and dusting brush. Crevice nozzle is optimized for cleaning narrow and tight areas and along the edges and baseboards. Dusting brush agitates dust and other small particles from various surfaces, helping the air flow to suck the dirt into the unit.

Motor and suction – lithium ion battery operates at 22.2V and its capacity is 2200 mAh, for a total of ~48Wh. Some sites claim that this unit comes with 800W motor, proving 7kPa of suction and that its operating time is 30 minutes.

We haven’t had a chance to check this officially, but note that even mighty Dyson V8 comes with 425W motor and in eco-mode
can operate up to 40 minutes and in burst mode up to 7 minutes. And it costs much more than Deik 2-in-1 vacuum cleaner. So, motor power is probably 80W and not 800W. Note: 80W is still good value for a cordless stick/handheld unit.

It is claimed that this vacuum provides ‘an impressive 7 kPa’ of suction. Well, truth to be told, common corded units easily achieve 20 kPa (and more) of suction, so 7 kPa is weaker than practically all corded home vacuums. Nonetheless, 7 kPa is good suction for stick/handheld vacuum.

Cleaning Performance
When it comes to reviewing cordless vacuums, the two major shortcomings I run into are not enough power or not enough runtime to get the job done between charges.

The Deik Vacuum Cleaner 2 in 1 Cordless utilizes a high-efficiency DC Motor that generates 7Kpa of powerful suction. That’s roughly comparable to some full-size corded upright vacuums.

However, like any other cordless stick vacuum, it cannot compete with a corded full-size upright when it comes to cubic feet of air per minute. That 7Kpa rating is for a relatively small vacuum nozzle, whereas a full-size upright would be approximately double the square inches.

Carpet
With a motorized brush roll to loosen embed dirt and pet hair there is enough suction power to remove it from low to medium pile carpet.

The Deik Vacuum Cleaner 2 in 1 Cordless does an impressive job cleaning carpet as long as you make several passes.

It works especially well for quick clean-ups of surface debris and pet hair, but, with the ability to upgrade the runtime the Deik 2 in 1 Cordless could be used as a Primary vacuum.

Smooth Floors
When it comes to smooth or hardwood floors the Deik Vacuum Cleaner 2 in 1 Cordless really earns its keep.

The Deik Vacuum Cleaner 2 in 1 Cordless was designed to easily Transition from low-pile carpet and area rugs to hard flooring
by just pressing a button.

Unlike some of its competitors it works great for vacuuming up loose dust and small debris from smooth floors without scattering it all over the room.

Upright Mode
After fully charging the 22.2V Lithium Ion Battery (which takes from 4 to 5 hours,) the first thing you will notice is how light the Deik Vacuum Cleaner 2 in 1 Cordless is at only 4.7 lbs. Despite its awkward-looking appearance, it is surprisingly well balanced making it very easy to maneuver and easy to clean overhead with one hand.

By removing the motorized floor brush and attaching the crevice tool or upholstery tool you can easily clean ceiling fan blades, vents, shelves, etc.

To operate the Deik Vacuum Cleaner 2 in 1 Cordless, simply pull the trigger. This locks it in the ON mode so you don’t have to keep it depressed while vacuuming. To stop simply pull the trigger again and the vacuum is switched off.

In the upright mode using the motorized floor brush you can expect approx. 25 min. of runtime. Without the motorized floor brush, approx. 40 min. Or, upgrade the runtime with an optional 2nd battery.

A bank of LED lights on the front of the floor brush are very helpful when vacuuming in poor lighting or after dark.

All attachments can be used with the extension wand or without (in the Handheld mode.)

Handheld Mode
In the handheld mode you can use the crevice tool for getting into narrow restricted areas. The upholstery tool has rubber bristles which work great for removing pet hair from upholstery and pet bedding.

The upholstery brush works OK for carpeted stairs but not great. Cleaning stairs works best with the motorized floor brush where the carpet pile gets matted down.

The quick-release Dirt Cup Capacity is .5 Liter and easy to empty.

Filtration
One of the issues I have with many of the cordless vacuums currently available is they lack adequate filtration. They stir up
the allergy-causing particulates found in every home and cycle them back into the air you breathe. Very unhealthy!

The Deik Vacuum Cleaner 2 in 1 Cordless is equipped with a HEPA-Level Filtration System that halts harmful bacteria, mold spores, and other allergens from being re-circulated back into the air in your home.

The main filter can be washed and the exhaust filter should be replaced approximately every 6 months.

  • Light-Weight at only 4.7 lbs.
  • 22.2V Lithium Ion Battery provides 25 minutes of runtime and can be easily removed and swapped for a 2nd Optional Battery to Double the Runtime up to 50 Minutes.
  • Powerful DC Motor generates 7Kpa of suction power for deep cleaning carpet.
  • 2-in-1 Removable Cordless Hand Vac for small messes.
  • Long wand for high up overhead cleaning.
  • Powered Brush Roll designed for Multi floor cleaning capabilities.
  • HEPA-Level Filtration.
  • One Year Warranty.

What is in the box?

  • A/C Power Adapter.
  • Mounting Base.
  • Crevice Tool.
  • Upholstery Tool.
  • Welcome Manual.
  • Battery Charger.
  • Hassle-Free.

Pros:
comparing this Cordless Vacuum to other currently available cordless vacuums, I find this to be a good product that offers
excellent value at the current price point.

The Deik 2 in 1 Cordless Vacuum Cleaner is the most useful for cleaning hardwood or smooth floors. It’s very handy for day to
day clean-ups, especially if you have young children or pets at home. Also, it’s very effective for cleaning area rugs and short pile carpet.

Cons:
The only negative issue I find with this vacuum is that it is not free-standing. It requires the use of the included wall-mount hanging bracket or leaning it against the wall.

You can expect deep cleaning performance on medium to deep pile carpet in limited areas, but for larger areas, that is work better left to a full-size corded vacuum.

Keep in mind, it’s not fair or helpful to compare a cordless vacuum with a corded vacuum when it comes to suction power.

Final Conclusion:
Watch out Dyson, Hoover, and Bissel – Deik may not be a household word like those big name vacuum cleaner manufactures (yet) but the new Deik 2 in 1 Cordless Stick Vacuum Cleaner is getting plenty of attention from customers who are looking for a
practical yet inexpensive Cordless Upright Vacuum.

This genre of vacuum appeals to the home keeper who wants a quick and easy solution for dealing with everyday cleaning around the house without having to drag out the heavy corded upright or canister vacuum. For maintaining your floors a cordless upright makes a lot of sense – if it will get the job done and it’s not more trouble than its worth.

Overall, I believe the Deik Vacuum Cleaner 2 in 1 Cordless will make a very useful addition to any home! This attractive cordless stick vacuum will get the job done and its well worth the price. I do recommend this vacuum!
