The new battery-powered handheld vacuum cleaner from Kärcher: HV 1/1 Bp

Compact, strong and cordless

Winnenden, Germany, April 2018 - The new battery-powered HV 1/1 Bp handheld vacuum cleaner from Kärcher combines powerful performance with cordless freedom. Thanks to its compact and lightweight design, the machine can be used for a wide range of applications. The vacuum cleaner is available in three versions; with the appropriate accessories for tradesmen, building service contractors and vehicle cleaning.

The lithium-ion battery (18 V) supplies the HV 1/1 Bp with power for 20 minutes of work. In eco!efficiency mode the runtime increases to over 30 minutes, while also reducing the operating noise. The charging state can be seen on the battery at all times. And thanks to the new quick charger, it only takes 60 minutes to charge fully.

The efficient turbine also ensures high suction power. Thanks to a nominal power of up to 115 W and an air flow of 33 l/s, the compact machine achieves excellent cleaning results while only weighing about 1.8 kg - less than the average laptop.

In comparison to corded models, using a cordless vacuum cleaner saves up to 25% of work time. The machine no longer needs to be unplugged and plugged in again to clean a different room - efficiency increases. The irritation of winding and unwinding the cord is also a thing of the past. Another advantage: The lack of cord results in one less tripping hazard in the room.

Thanks to the wide variety of accessories, the machine is suited to many different purposes of use. Depending on the target group, the scope of delivery of the HV 1/1 Bp includes a suction brush, a crevice nozzle, two suction tubes, a floor nozzle, an upholstery nozzle, a car cleaning nozzle, a flexible suction hose, a carrying strap and a storage case. Thus, when cleaning a building, the machine quickly becomes a floor vacuum cleaner, can be comfortably slung over a shoulder during breaks in the work and is suited to cleaning sensitive surfaces in car interiors.
