I needed a new vacuum for my house. I don’t have any carpet in the house, just hardwoods, tile, and a few throw rugs. On the advice of Lynn at the Littleton Store, I brought home the Miele Triflex. Wow! What a cleaning machine! It is perfect for my house. Not only is it a battery-powered stick vacuum cleaner, it has the suction power you expect from a Miele. In addition, it even comes with replaceable battery, so you can clean even large areas in one go.

3-in-1 Design of the Triflex

The versitility of the Triflex is amazing! The vacuum’s power hub — where the battery, motor and dust bin are — can be moved to base of the vacuum (where the suction is happening) when cleaning floors, to the hilt of the vacuum to reach elevated surfaces and directly to the head of the vacuum, sans-stick, to clean smaller spaces like a car.

This means you can easily vacuum underneath flat furniture or across large spaces effortlessly. Then change the configuration with the push of a button and start cleaning the couch. The configuration concept of the Triflex HX1 adapts to suit your needs perfectly.

Range Mode

A wide range of options: regardless of whether you want to vacuum underneath flat furniture or pick up dust on the ceiling – thanks to the Attach the PowerUnit to the top of the Triflex HX1, and you have maximum flexibility. The vacuum cleaner can easily get those cobwebs from the ceiling, dust bunnies from under beds, or crumbs in the cupboards – for perfect cleanliness in your home.

Comfort Mode

Confort mode configuration

Attach the PowerUnit to the bottom of your Miele Triflex HX1 Vacuum Cleaner. This will allow you to vacuum particularly large rooms easily – such as long corridors or spacious living rooms. The vacuum cleaner is easy to handle thanks to its low weight. The head swivels to make turning the vacuum easy.

A common concern when looking for a vacuum is whether or not it can stand up on its own. The Miele Triflex models do this with ease, so that you’ll never have to worry about it hitting the floor when you run to answer the phone or take a quick break.

Compact Mode

Do you just need to pick up a few crumbs on the couch or vacuum your car seats? It’s easy with the PowerUnit solo! You simply detach it, and use it independently from the suction wand and the Electrobrush. This makes it quick and easy to use – you save time while ensuring cleaning is efficient and effective. Oh, and get every crumb with the suction power of the Triflex.

The Miele Triflex Is CORDLESS!

I just love a cordless vacuum! Compared to a clunky corded vacuum, a sleek cordless stick vacuum is a lot more convenient. Cordless vacuums tend to be lighter and more compact, and they don’t have a long cord to trail behind you or trip you up. 

With other cordless models, you might run into issues with battery life. My house isn’t huge, but usually it takes more than one battery charge to get both the upstairs and the basement. If I’m finally in the right frame of mind to vacuum, I sure want to get it all done at that time. I certainly don’t want to wait for the battery to charge. The Miele Triflex to the rescue!

Batteries and Charger Cradle 

Miele Triflex HX1 Pro Vacuum Cleaner comes with a convenient battery charger and a spare battery. Vacuum and charge at the same time by using the separate charging cradle for the extra battery. Thus, get double the running time of your Miele Vacuum Cleaner.

The Triflex stick models are virtually the only credible cordless vacuums to have a replaceable, rechargeable battery. This allows you to move through your house without having to stop to recharge your vacuum.

Battery Life

But what about the battery life? The Triflex models have up to 60 minutes of cleaning time per battery and, of course, can be replaced mid-clean for bigger projects. Miele’s battery technology comes from Varta, one of the best battery manufacturers in the world.

Flexible Charging Options

Charging your Miele Triflex HX1 Vacuum Cleaner is now extremely convenient – depending on the individual configuration concept, you can charge the appliance with the PowerUnit on top or on the bottom. If you do not want to drill the wall bracket into the wall, you can simply plug the cable directly into the battery. Of course, you can also charge the battery outside of the appliane with the battery charging cradle.

Is the dust container of your Miele Triflex HX1 Vacuum Cleaner full? Twist2open allows you to empty the container easily – with just one twist. The container opens right away. Then, easily emplty the dust into a trash can. 

Miele has designed a system to hygienically empty the bin without residual dust kicking back into the air. Another nice feature is that you don’t have to worry about discharging the bin and dumping debris with an accidental touch of the trigger.
