Dyson Digital Slim™ lightweight cordless vacuum

Support for your Dyson Digital Slim™

Here you can find helpful tips, maintenance advice, your user manual and more.

Getting started

You can quickly get up and running with our step-by-step guide.

Fully charge before first use

For the best experience, we recommend fully charging your machine, and any additional batteries, as soon as you open the box and after every clean. This is because the battery and monitoring system's algorithm 'learns' over time, and fully charging your batteries helps it to more accurately calculate and display remaining run time.
