The highlight of the Vytronix VTBC01 is the price; it is not the most powerful vacuum cleaner on the market, nor is it the most efficient when it comes to cleaning.
However, it is capable of taking care of simple household cleaning tasks like vacuuming carpets, furniture, and floors.

Vytronix VTBC01 Review: Design and Build
This Vytronix vacuum cleaner is a bagless cleaner; its design includes a HEPA filter that traps the dirt during cleaning in a dirt container that can be emptied when it fills up.
The more common vacuum cleaner design is the bagged design which makes use of a replaceable filter material to trap the dirt picked up by the vacuum while allowing the air to flow through the filter material.

It is a lightweight and compact machine suitable for people who are opposed to large and heavy vacuum cleaners.
Also, the design is quite sleek and aesthetically pleasing; even though it is relatively affordable, it doesn’t look cheap. The material used are not of the highest quality, but this is not surprising at all when you consider the price of the vacuum cleaner.
Specification of the Vytronix VTBC01
With a generous 2-litre bin capacity, the Vytronix VTBC01 doesn’t require constant emptying, unless you are vacuuming a large space.
Weighing just a little over 4 kg, it is really lightweight, so, you should not have any problem moving it around and up the stairs as you clean.
The 1400W motor is powerful enough for normal household cleaning, however, it is not the most powerful motor there is when it comes to vacuum cleaner motors.
If you live in a large home with multiple floors you may need something more powerful, but it will be fine for most cleaning jobs.
Vytronix VTBC01: Performance
The motor is designed to always start at full power and the machine excels more on hard floors.
It is not the best to use on carpets as it tends to get stuck if pressed down on the carpet and it doesn’t clean effectively if the head lifts too far from the carpet.

The lightweight design makes it easy to carry up and down the stairs. When it comes to pet hair and other allergens, the machine performs fairly well.
Also, with the upholstery tool, the machine performs really well at cleaning upholstered furniture.
4-Stage HEPA Filtration
Vacuum cleaners that come with HEPA filters are usually the best ones to go for when picking a vacuum cleaner.
According to the manufacturers, with the 4-stage HEPA filtration, you will able to get rid of allergens and improve the quality of your indoor air.
The 4-stage filtration allows the machine to capture and separate large and small particles and prevent minuscule allergens from being released back into the air.
The Vytronix VTBC01 comes with a number of accessories that improve your cleaning experience.
While there are some other accessories you can purchase and use with the cleaner, here are some of the accessories that come with it.
Crevice tool / Dusting brush
The crevice tool is a small and slender accessory that comes with an angled tip that is typically used to get into hard-to-reach spots like in-between cushions, baseboards and corners.
The brush comes with soft bristles that are suitable for cleaning fragile surfaces like glass surfaces, art pieces, lamps, and more.
With this combination accessory, you can get into tight corners and other areas that are not so easy to reach.
The hose that comes with the Vytronix VTBC01 is 1.5 meters in length. This may not be long enough for some people, however, it is a small portable vacuum cleaner and the hose length is still within reasonable limits.
If you find this hose too short, you can always buy a longer hose. You should however, keep it in mind that the longer the hose, the lower the suction power.
More so on a vacuum cleaner that is not one of the most powerful.
This is one of the most efficient features of this vacuum cleaner. It is particularly designed for furniture.
It comes with a flat head that is used to get dust and dirt off chairs, mattresses, cushions and other furniture.

Vytronix VTBC01 Review: Final Thoughts
You’ll find it hard to get a better vacuum cleaner than the Vytronix VTBC01 at such a low price.
The suction is acceptable for such a small vacuum cleaner, nonetheless, the materials used to make the machine are not the best quality and this directly affects the durability. The multi-stage HEPA filtration ensures that the machine gets rid of all of small particles like pet dander and other allergens.
If you are looking for a compact and portable vacuum cleaner that can take care of normal cleaning tasks and comes at a cheap price, then you should have a look at the Vytronix VTBC01.
It’s not the most powerful vacuum cleaner on the market, but for the price, you will be happy with the results.
