Tineco, a leader in floor cleaners, has put their wonderful experience in cordless vacuum cleaners to effective use in the Tineco Pure One S15 Pro where we find the usual excellent quality, efficiency and attention to detail.
In the package that measures incredibly only 32x23x44 we find in addition to the vacuum cleaner:
- Charging base
- Motorized main brush with light
- Small, motorized brush
- Tip for corners
- 2in1 brush for delicate surfaces and upholstery
- Replacement prefilter
- Brush maintenance tool
Accessories are all excellent quality, made of polycarbonate except for the tube which is partially made of aluminium. All attachments are easy to fit and remove, plus they come with one gasket to ensure the efficiency of the airflow.
The charging base deserves special mention. Tineco has managed to develop a solution that does not require holes in the wall but is also different from the bulky vertical stands (such as that of the Dyson). In fact, it only uses a base that measures 28 × 28 cm, heavy enough to remain firmly on the ground and the S15 Pro rests on it while remaining straight in balance but very stable, limiting the overall dimensions to a minimum. The base is also designed to accommodate the 3 accessories supplied.
The central body, compact and well balanced, weighs only 1.8kg and is a true concentrate of technology. In the upper part, we find a touch button to switch between the 3 operating modes: max, auto and manual. The power of the latter (from 1 to 6) is selected via a touch slider.
The battery is removable, but the base does not provide for simultaneous recharging of a second battery. Excellent therefore for when we will have to replace it but not very convenient to extend its autonomy.
The main brush, a fundamental accessory of every vacuum cleaner, is well made and on average larger than average. Incorporates Zero-Tangle technology to limit the risk of tangling. The V-shaped design centres hair and hair avoiding that these go to block the side gears, moreover the internal rake will tear them and lift them to facilitate suction.
The large wheels guarantee excellent smoothness on all surfaces and the comfortable joint allows you to tilt the vacuum cleaner up to 90 ° and reach comfortably even under the lowest furniture. Finally, the front LED light is very convenient for “finding” dirt even in dark areas.
The 5-stage filtration system guarantees maximum performance as it can filter 99.9% of allergens but is also practical. Mixed and cyclonic filters are easily disassembled and washed, as well as the pre-filter. The HEPA filter is placed on the back and is held together by a magnetic attachment: a gem.
Easy to use and easy to empty
The Automatic mode is managed by the excellent iLoop sensor that we find in all recent Tineco products, and which works fantastically. It always recognizes the amount of dirt accurately and quickly to adjust the power and speed of the roller. This allows us to optimize consumption to the maximum by using great power only when necessary.
Suction is started using the trigger placed at the height of the index finger and which does not need to be kept pressed. I would have liked to have had the option to choose the behaviour of the trigger because in some contexts it is more comfortable to hold it.
In front of the trigger, we have a lever that allows you to unlock the opening of the dust collection compartment and at the same time push down the dirt. A real gem that allows you to empty the vacuum cleaner without getting dirty and efficiently. The compartment is 470ml, not one of the largest but still sufficient for everyday use.
In the upper part, the huge colour display stands out which, in addition to a pleasant animation, shows in real-time all the necessary information: power, operating mode, remaining battery charge and any warnings on obstructions and entanglements.
There is no shortage of smart functions thanks to its application even if on such a product there is limited (theoretical) control of the state of wear of the parts, remote verification of the state of charge, and history of cleaning carried out. Instead, it is essential to set the Italian language in the voice assistant and perform firmware updates.
TOP performance in all situations
The Tineco Pure One S15 Pro has a nominal power of 500W which, regardless of the already excellent value, is exploited very well and is reflected in all conditions with exceptional performance.
In the usual tests I carry out (coffee, breadcrumbs, cereals) he didn’t have the slightest sign of hesitation; everything was perfectly vacuumed at the first stroke even between the joints of my tiles which are quite deep. Consider that the tests were carried out in the automatic mode also to verify the goodness of the same.
I received maximum satisfaction in cleaning carpets where great power is essential because poor hair and dog hair get stuck in the bristles of the carpet. In this context it is difficult to carry out replicable tests and you will have to trust my judgment because for the first time I have obtained results equal to the trailed vacuum cleaners.
Autonomy is average and sufficient for a 100sqm house. The great advantage of being able to make use of the automatic mode allows us to use the great power only when it is necessary for favour of the autonomy that is prolonged. In MAX mode, to be used only in case of “disasters”, the autonomy drops drastically to around 9 minutes, but this also happens in competing products. Full recharging takes about 4/5 hours.
Tineco Pure One S15 Pro – price, offers and conclusions
With the Tineco Pure One S15 Pro, we are faced with top-of-the-range cordless vacuum cleaners that are hard to find fault with: powerful, practical, robust, and easy to handle.
Its real and only flaw is the price which at the time of writing is £599 here on the official Tineco store with free shipping. Price which, however, is justified by the excellent quality and power of which it has nothing to envy to the much more noble Dyson.
Being a newly presented product, it is desirable to see it go down or in any case on offer in the coming weeks.
