Straight Forward Cleaning
The secret to the HyLite 2’s ease of use is in the design. With no long hoses to block and clog - the HyLite 2 collects dirt just 1cm from the floor in the head of the unit. The HyLite 2’s powered brush head now features Gtech’s unique AirLOC technology∆ which picks up large debris as you push the vacuum forwards and sucks up embedded dust and fine dirt on the back stroke. The cleaner’s rotating brush bar makes it ideal for removing stubborn dirt and can be used on a variety of floor surfaces.
Lightweight Small Vacuum Cleaner
Lifting and carrying the HyLite 2 mini vacuum is virtually effortless and the specially designed wheels make it glide across the floor. The handle extends at the touch of a button and instantly retracts to store away to use as a handheld vacuum or simply store in a drawer for next time. Cleaning your home has never been easier.
Grab and Go with this Mini Vacuum
Designed for modern living the Gtech HyLite 2 mini vacuum is perfect for quick clean ups around the home and ready for action in seconds. Simply extend the handle, or easily remove it, and you’re ready to clean.
Whole home cleaning
Use this Gtech ProLite (body only) unit with your HyLite battery and charger to create the perfect, lightweight cleaning system. Both the HyLite 2 and the ProLite use the same battery and charger, so you can swap between each vacuum as you need. With a crevice nozzle and dusting attachment, the ProLite can be used on the stairs, upholstery and the smallest spaces for additional handheld cleaning; the perfect companion to your upright HyLite or HyLite 2 vacuum.
Eliminate the dust cloud…
Fused together at the top and sides, our hygienic vacuum bags are robust so they can retain dirt and avoid tearing during disposal, so you avoid the dust cloud when emptying and keep your home dust free.
Enhanced cleaning capacity…
In order for you to get the most use out of each bag, the airflow continually pushes dirt down into the bag as you vacuum. This means each bag can hold more dirt than you might be accustomed to with products of a similar size. The pleats in the bags increase their dust capacity, meaning you can go longer without having to change them. You still get the same performance cleaning versus a bagless vacuum, but they’re more efficient because they don’t have a cyclone bin that uses additional power.
Triple layered filter bag…
The HyLite’s vacuum bags are made up of three layers, offering convenient cleaning as well as a more hygienic vacuuming experience. The layers of the bags are breathable and filter different grades of dust and debris. This helps the HyLite's airflow compress the dirt more efficiently, giving you maximum capacity and durability. Each bag essentially acts as a filter, trapping dirt and dust, so you’re getting a fresh clean every time you use a new bag. Our breathable bags are more environmentally friendly, as there is no need to use a plastic bag each time you empty your vacuum like you would with a bagless vacuum.
How long will the bag last?
The number of bags you’ll use depends on how many people live in your home, whether or not you have children and pets and your general cleaning schedule. Average home, where cleaning is done 3 times a week, average just 7-15 bags a year. You will get x4 bags included FREE with your HyLite, and an extra pack of x15 replacement bags costs just £12.99.
Compact vacuum cleaner
In upright mode, this small vacuum cleaner stands up on its own, but its super telescopic handle and compact size means you can store it anywhere. Store in a cupboard, back away in a drawer or in our storage bag , which is also available to keep your HyLite 2 safely packed away - whether in a drawer or hung on the back of a door - for just £9.99.
Nowhere for dirt to hide
Using a low profile, reclining handle, the Gtech HyLite 2 can reach under furniture leaving no space untouched. This cordless vacuums easy manoeuvrability, allows you to clean around your home with ease. LED lights at the front of the power head will light the way while you clean, ensuring there’s no dark corners for dirt and dust to hide.
The detachable duster’s lightweight design means you can reach up high for cobwebs, around furniture, behind TV and computer screens and between cabinets. The duster comes with a clip that neatly attaches it to your vacuum for a simple storage solution.

This section explains how we calculate the claims we make in our advertising. Where we can, we test our products in accordance with IEC guidelines using standard IEC62885-2 - these are official international standards for comparing vacuum cleaners. If there are no suitable test standards, we use real homes and record real-life data. Data sample size varies - we test in at least 10 different households and up to 50 if it is practical to do so. Finally, if neither of the above is suitable, we will set up laboratory testing to try and replicate real-life usage.
Why do Gtech believe the HyLite is the smallest, most compact high performance vacuum cleaner in the world?
While it’s not practical to check every vacuum cleaner on sale in every store in every country, we do believe this to be true based on our research. We’ve searched the internet for ‘compact’, ‘small’ and ‘light’ vacuums - the HyLite was more compact and lighter than any we could find. We monitor new launches and work with international retailers, so we’re always aware of the latest products on the market.
We also checked all the vacuum cleaners sold in key UK channels - Argos, John Lewis and Currys. There aren’t any lighter, smaller or more compact vacuums than the Gtech HyLite and they all (apart from our own AirRam models) incorporate long tubes.
Our engineers are all highly skilled and experienced - they regularly visit trade fairs and factories to keep up to date with the state of the art in the vacuum cleaner industry. With over 80 years of vacuum cleaner development under their belt, our product design team work hard to ensure everything we manufacture is built for modern homes and lifestyles.
Can you prove that 'the HyLite's shorter airpath reduces blocking?
We have considered all the main, ‘state of the art’ vacuum cleaner construction methods currently used in our industry. Surprisingly, very few manufacturers attempt to make vacuum cleaners compact or shorten the airpath.
Many of our competitors’ manuals/ product guides instruct users to check the tubes (particularly the bends) for blockages if performance reduces. As the HyLite doesn’t have long tubes or any bends, we can be confident that this problem will not be present with the HyLite.
What do Gtech consider to be a ‘high performance vacuum cleaner?
There are internationally agreed methods (IEC standards) of measuring vacuum cleaner performance on carpets, hard floors and hard floors with deep crevices. We consider products with a cleaning width of at least 250mm (10 inches), which achieve an average score of at least 60% across the 3 tests, to be ‘high performance. You can see performance results of the HyLite and competitor vacuums here
What makes the HyLite battery ‘professional grade?
It’s important to us that we use the best possible components in our products. That’s why we’ve gone for Samsung Lithium-ion batteries - they’re reliable and robust, two of the most important elements for professional users.
How do Gtech test the HyLite's runtime?
We test all our floorcare products in accordance with IEC standards (international guidelines that all floorcare manufacturers have to follow). The HyLite achieved an average runtime of 20 minutes 27 seconds when tested on 50% hard laminated floor and 50% 10mm pile carpet which is what we believe best represents a real home. You can see the performance results of the Hylite here
The HyLite’s runtime will be a bit longer when the bag starts to fill up and when you use it in handheld mode. This is because there’s less air resistance and strain across the vacuum’s fan, so less power is needed. The runtime may be slightly shorter if you’re only cleaning carpet, especially if it has a thick pile.
What do Gtech mean by ‘low profile?
The HyLite is specially designed to clean underneath furniture and in areas that some other, bigger vacuum cleaners can’t reach. At just 70mm high, and with a reclining, telescopic handle, you can easily reach under most sofas and beds with the HyLite.
∆AirLOC system is patent-pending - WO2017/144922.
*HyLite weight = 1kg in handheld mode; 1.6kg in upright mode. ProLite weight = 1kg when working with dusting brush or crevice tool.
**Runtimes quoted may vary depending on surfaces cleaned.
± Care is needed when storing along skirting boards and delicate surfaces to avoid scuffing.
