Can ex-Dyson engineers beat their old boss? Lupe Pure Cordless review: Built by ex-Dyson engineers, can they beat their old boss?
The Lupe Pure Cordless is the first vacuum cleaner from this plucky British start-up, designed by a team of ex-Dyson engineers. However, how does it compare to the team’s prior employer?
Dyson is the most popular brand of cordless vacuum cleaners on the market. The company, which was launched in 1991 by entrepreneur James Dyson, helped popularize cordless designs and has become synonymous with them. However, an increasing number of businesses are vying for Sir James’ throne.
Lupe Technology, a daring start-up, is one of these new challengers. Because it was created and is led by two ex-Dyson engineers, Lucas Horne and Pablo Montero, this UK company may be one of the best positioned to succeed Dyson.
Is it possible for this new kid on the block to compete with Dyson’s best-selling cordless vacuum cleaners?
This website received a Lupe Pure Cordless vacuum cleaner — the company’s first and, as of now, only vacuum cleaner – to see if it’s as good as its founders claim…
Lupe Technology, based in Chipping Sodbury, South Gloucestershire, was created in 2015 by a former Dyson research manager and engineer based in Malmesbury, Wiltshire. The Lupe Pure Cordless vacuum cleaner is the company’s debut product.
Fortunately, the Lupe Pure Cordless conceals the fact that it is a first-generation consumer device. It comes attractively packaged and with all of the extras you’d expect from a high-end vacuum, such as a detachable wand and upholstery attachments for getting into those hard-to-reach corners around the house.
The Lupe Pure Cordless isn’t inexpensive at £569.
The ex-Dyson crew hasn’t shied away from charging what you’d expect from their former company. To justify its price, the Lupe Pure Cordless vacuum cleaner must be a beast. More importantly, it must appear to be a sound investment.
To allay any concerns regarding the latter, Lupe Technology has developed an online store dedicated to spare parts, so you won’t have to worry about misplacing or broken parts. Vacuum cleaners are subjected to a lot of abuse over their lifetime, but you don’t want to be stuck with a £569 charge if something goes wrong.
That, thankfully, will not be the case. “Brinkwire Summary News” reports that replacement brush bars are available for £9.99.
