Resumee

The Philips - XC8147/01 SpeedPro Max Aqua makes a very good impression and scores especially with its excellent cleaning performance. A further plus point is the possibility to plug in a wiper attachment, with which you can vacuum and wipe wet at the same time. All in all, the handling is easy and the device can be operated without any problems. The small display shows you the battery status and makes it easy to plan the cleaning.

Pro

  • Wiper attachment included in delivery
  • Very good edge cleaning
  • Rubber stopper ensures safe parking
  • Battery level indicator

Cons

  • Doesn't stand up by itself
  • Plastic smell
  • The air blast goes in the direction of the user, who is thereby puffed

Very good cleaning performance and handling. However, the vacuum cleaner does not stand by itself and the emitted plastic odour is noticeable.

Preparation

The Philips stick vacuum cleaner Philips - XC8147/01 SpeedPro Max Aqua from Philips comes in a simple but functionally illustrated package and is ready for use as soon as it is taken out of the box, as the battery level is at 40%. The operating instructions use pictograms to describe universally how to handle the device. The instructions are in an envelope together with the warranty certificate.

Optics

The device is black and metallic green-blue on the main unit and also the base has these colours with orange details.

Handling

The vacuum cleaner can be easily assembled from its accessories and simply plugged into each other. The suction arm has an integrated upholstery and corner nozzle and thus avoids many loose accessories. The different feet help the vacuum cleaner to be equipped for all surfaces. Another small foot is suitable for furniture and frees it from fluff or hair.

The dirt container can be removed and emptied through a removable flap. The container is easy to clean by hand and the filter can be replaced. The brushes on the vacuum cleaner feet can also be removed by moving a slide to the side. On the 2 large feet there are wheels, which should be regularly cleaned of hair, otherwise they could quickly become clogged.

At 2.7 kilograms, the device is quite handy and therefore easy to lift. The rollers under the foot make it easier to use and the weight does not have a very negative effect.

The volume is between 64 and 72 dB and is slightly louder than a normal conversation volume. Depending on which mode you use, the device becomes louder or quieter. As the air is expelled from the back of the device, you can get it exactly when you vacuum. The air is cold and a little uncomfortable, but you get used to it quickly.

The LED lights at the front of the vacuum base are particularly practical, as they help you to see the dust better behind furniture or in darker areas and vacuum more accurately. These go on as soon as you start vacuuming.

Both during the charging process and during use, a digital display shows the battery status in percent, so that you can easily orientate yourself.

With a slider on the handle you can manually adjust 3 suction strengths and the vacuum cleaner manages to clean the floor even faster.

In normal mode, the battery lasts about 80 minutes, which is enough for normal use in several rooms. The charging time is about 6 hours.

If you want to turn off the vacuum cleaner while working, you can lean it against the wall. There, the suction cup will not slip away, because a rubber attachment is attached to the back. Unfortunately, the vacuum cleaner cannot stand on its own without a wall and would tip over.

With the wall attachment, the vacuum cleaner has a fixed place and can be charged there at the same time. Thus, the vacuum cleaner is immediately ready for use when you want to use it. The device is charged via a magnetic point and no plug has to be plugged in.

Cleaning result

Suction attachment

The cleaning result is good and especially smooth floors are cleaned by the vacuum cleaner in no time. Even on carpets, the vacuum cleaner only needs very few transitions for heavier dirt, but the result is still very satisfactory. Noticeable are the edges, which are vacuumed very cleanly and are cleaned of particles just as well as on larger surfaces.

Wiper attachment

The wiper attachment is a good aid for wiping the floor. The attachment can easily be clamped under the suction foot without a brush and you can wipe and vacuum at the same time. You should make sure that the cloth is not too wet, otherwise the vacuum cleaner will suck up wet particles, which it is not suitable for.

The attachment can also be separated from the foot

The cloth can be easily attached to the attachment by Velcro and washed in the washing machine. A mechanism in the attachment ensures that the water is evenly distributed on the cloth through a small pumping trough, which can be operated with the foot.

If necessary, detergent or floor cleaner can also be added to the water.
