In the last few weeks I've tried a few household cleaning products and, to be honest, I've had a hard time going back to the broom and dustpan once the testing period of these smart devices is over: luckily we receive a lot of products every week. so my relationship with "manual" techniques is slowly failing.
A few weeks ago I received a vacuum cleaner from a new brand, Vactidy: from what I understand they are a sub-brand of Proscenic, even if there are no official references. The model I've tried in recent weeks is the Vactidy Blitz V8 which, among the particularities, is presented as one of the cheapest products, in relation to its technical specifications.

Design and Materials
If they hadn't hinted to me from behind the scenes that it's a sub-brand of proscenic, I probably would have noticed it very soon from the lines of the design anyway: this Vactidy Blitz V8, in fact, it looks a lot like some cyclonic vacuum cleaners of the other Chinese company, one of all the Proscenic I10 which I have personally tried in the past few months.
Omit the appearance of similarities, this Vactidy Blitz V8 is made entirely of polycarbonate and the reference colors are black and green, which among other things is the color that represents the brand (including the packaging). The weight is rather low, less than 3kg, and it is very comfortable to use in any scenario, even with one hand.
We are faced with the frame with pistol grip, there is always the classic and very practical trigger to turn the vacuum cleaner on and off and the grip is excellent, with any type of hand. The use always follows the usual logic: if we press the button the first time we turn on the vacuum cleaner, with the second pressure we increase the suction power while with the third pressure we turn off the device.
On this model extremely cheap we have no other function keys or led screens with various indicators: the only led that lights up on this vacuum cleaner is integrated in the battery (which in turn is removable and wall-chargeable) which lights up green or red when the battery is low or almost empty.
La capacity of the dirt container is equal to 1.2 litres, and this places the product in a certainly higher range so as to compete with much more expensive products; the positive side, moreover, lies in the presence of the filter 4-stage HEPA fully washable and capable of capturing up to 99.97% of dust particles down to 0,3 microns.
Among the things I appreciated the most, I can certainly tell you the presence of the luminous LEDs on the floor cleaning accessory: ok, it will certainly not be an exclusive novelty, but seeing it on an economic product always makes me happy.
Suction power and cleaning quality
Before talking, however, the actual cleaning tests that I carried out with the Vactidy Blitz V8, as usual, I give you two technical data: we are dealing with a vacuum cleaner with 130W brushless motor capable of generating a suction power up to 20.000 AP, when used in MAX mode. If we compare the numbers with other producers, I can safely tell you that they are slightly above average values, especially in the 100 euro range where there are very few players who play it.
Leaving aside the pseudo controversy part, the better performance of this Vactidy Blitz V8 I have undoubtedly noticed them with the "shorter" accessories such as the fabric brush and the precision nozzle, where the suction power is good and with fine dust such as crumbs, hair or dust between the seats of my car, I have not encountered difficulties of any kind, including in the background carpet under the carpets, usually a little more complicated to deep clean.
Then I went ahead with my tests and used the extendable extension and the rotating brush for the floor: also in this case the Vactidy vacuum cleaner performed quite well, and managed to suck up almost everything on the first pass. Specifically, in my tests I used ground coffee, breadcrumbs and oregano, all more or less dusty: in all scenarios I managed to clean very well on the first pass, but I always did a second pass to have certainly more results accurate.
The level of inclination of the broom in addition to the 180 degree rotation which allows more comfortable movements when we enter under a bed, near a table or similar points. The suction power, overall, is evident that it is not comparable to more expensive products but as a "classic vacuum cleaner" we say that it does its job well and is a worthy replacement for many old-fashioned products with a bag to be changed every 3×2.
La battery supplied with the Vactidy Blitz V8 is a unit from 2200 mAh and, as anticipated, it is detachable and removable so as to give you the possibility of possibly using a secondary battery for cleaning that requires a slightly longer time. Let's say that in principle this could be a PRO, but first you will have to be able to find a secondary battery, currently unavailable on Amazon and on the manufacturer's website.
Leaving aside this detail, the autonomy of the vacuum cleaner is around 30 minutes, a little above average, above all because other manufacturers with the same battery manage to achieve an autonomy of around 50% less. Furthermore, recharging the battery is quite fast and takes about 2 and a half hours.
Price and Considerations
Vactidy Blitz V8 cost on Amazon approximately EUR 130 but thanks to the various coupons that can often be found on the manufacturer's page, it is very easy to buy at poco more than 100 euro, including Amazon fast shipping. Generally speaking, this is a product that I have found balanced with its price and in line with my expectations: obviously it is not the best vacuum cleaner I have ever tried, but in this price range there are no big rivals that can do better than him.
Among the pros undoubtedly the extreme lightness and good battery life, while among the cons I would include a not very high suction power (and no, I'm not talking about the "plate data"), but it's not a real aspect negative if we consider that his job, however, does.
