New Kärcher vacuum cleaners with improved battery technology for more power and run time

Cordless flexibility

Winnenden, September 2017 - Kärcher is launching two new models on to the market, the dry vacuum cleaner T 9/1 Bp and backpack vacuum BV 5/1 Bp, featuring further refined battery technology to deliver the power of corded machines. Power is supplied from a 36 V, 7.5 Ah lithium-ion battery.

With a fully charged battery, the vacuum cleaners have a run time of 24 minutes. The power input in normal operation is approximately 730 watts. Both vacuum cleaners also feature an energy-saving setting, the eco!efficiency mode with 400 watts, which is more than enough for numerous cleaning tasks. This can extend the run time to up to 46 minutes. For continuous operation, only two batteries are required in the energy-saving mode and the new quick charger BC 1/7 fully charges a drained battery in only 60 minutes.

The new models are very versatile and manoeuvrable: being cordless, both models are ideal for fast and efficient cleaning in heavily-furnished areas. Whereas the T 9/1 Bp is suitable for maintenance cleaning in hotels, building cleaning or public facilities, the backpack vacuum BV 5/1 Bp is also suitable for various uses, such as cleaning buses, trains or aircraft cabins.

Since both vacuum cleaners are whisper-quiet, they can be used in noise-sensitive areas.
