The Rowenta - Air Force is a sufficient vacuum cleaner, which fulfils its task well, especially on carpet surfaces.
The many attachments are only partially necessary and constitute many small parts that do not all find a place on the wall mount. The battery life is quite short compared to the charging time and as soon as you switch on the turbo mode it drops considerably.
The rod vacuum cleaner Air Force by Rowenta is packed in a simple but functionally illustrated package and is ready to use as soon as it is removed from the box. The instruction manual describes in 27 languages how to use the device, mainly with pictures.
The device is mainly black and decorated with silver details.
The vacuum cleaner can be easily assembled. The many attachments are intended for all possible areas, but the brush hardness grades are hardly different and a lot of individual parts are flying around.
The dirt container is easy to remove and easy to clean by hand. The brush on the vacuum cleaner foot can also be easily removed and cleaned of dirt.
At 2.9 kilograms, the device is quite heavy and therefore not very easy to lift. However, the castors under the foot make handling easier and the heavy weight doesn't have a very negative effect. These must be regularly freed of hair, otherwise, their flexibility will be restricted.
The volume of 75 dB is quite loud and corresponds to a somewhat louder conversation.
With the wall mount, the vacuum has a fixed place and can charge there at the same time. This means that the vacuum cleaner is ready for use at all times. Some of the attachments can also be stored there and are easily accessible.
The cleaning result is good and, above all, smooth floors are cleaned in no time by the vacuum cleaner. Even on carpets, the vacuum cleaner only needs to be applied a few times to every spot for a satisfactory result. Only at edges, the vacuum cleaner has slight problems getting rid of all particles.
With turbo mode, the vacuum cleaner picks up particles from the ground even faster and better, but the battery life suffers as a result. In normal mode, the battery lasts about 30 minutes, which is just enough for normal use in several rooms. The battery lasts 14 minutes in turbo mode.
