Best Dyson Replacement Battery [Best Options for V6, V7, V8, V10, and V11]

Best Dyson Replacement Battery

Dyson is a famous brand in the cordless vacuum space, which means one thing – a lot of sales.

I bring this up because the sheer availability of third-party components includes batteries, which we’ll look at in this article.

We’ll be talking about the best Dyson replacement batteries. Yes, Dyson’s aren’t disposable where you can’t replace the battery. This is one misconception I have before owning one.

All current models in their line have removable batteries. Only in the V11 series did Dyson introduce a detachable battery, so you don’t need to loosen bolts.

For earlier models, that isn’t the case, but don’t worry, the process is easy, and I’ve written several guides about replacing the battery for the Dyson V6, V8, and V10 models. Please check these out for more information.

Disclaimer: Dyson recommends purchasing original batteries for the best performance and longevity. These options are costly but worth it if the price isn’t a concern.

However, there are replacement brands that have gotten high ratings and a worthy replacement for your older, out of warranty Dyson. It’s better than replacing the whole vacuum itself. Most (if not all options) are manufactured in China, hence the lower cost.

Please note that the warranty information listed below may change and should only be used for reference. So check with the manufacturer or product description to be sure.

An overview of the Best Dyson Replacement Battery Per Model

Best Replacement Batteries for Dyson V6 models

The V6 was once Dyson’s flagship but now an entry-level option. Despite its age, there is still a bevy of options available, some with higher mAh numbers that (in theory) should run longer than the OEM variety. However, these larger cell batteries will be heavier.  Some options come with extra filters, screwdrivers, and bolts, so it’s something to consider for deal hunters.

You can still purchase an original battery directly from Dyson, but it isn’t cheap. The price is equivalent to two or three replacement batteries. For those of you who have out of warranty V6, I wouldn’t fault you for purchasing a third-party alternative to give your vacuum a new lease in life.

Important note: Do not charge the battery immediately if it’s hot, or you’ll risk damaging it. Let it cool down first before recharging. It’s a common theme for all replacement vacuums I’ve seen so far. So it’s a heads up for those of you purchasing replacement batteries for the V6.

Best Replacement Battery for Dyson V7 Models

The V7 is an in-between option between the V6 and V8. However, its framework is closer to the V8 than V6. Replacing the V7 battery is similar to that of the V8. So check my guide on replacing the V8 battery for more details. An original V7 battery is available on Dyson’s website, but it’s expensive and is equivalent to two or three replacement V7 batteries. I’d go for an original if your vacuum is still under warranty. Otherwise, it would make sense to go with a cheaper replacement.

Like in the V6, there are some options here that include bolts and filters. So it’s something to consider if you need those parts.

I’ve read some reviews with the 4000 mAh batteries running for up to 40 minutes – up to 10 minutes more from the V7’s OEM battery.

Best Replacement Battery for Dyson V8 Models

How to replace Dyson V8 battery

As one of the more popular variants, there will be more V8 battery options than V7, which is good. Consumers can go for a higher capacity 5000 mAh variant or a lighter but lower capacity battery.

For owners of Dyson V8 still under warranty, the original battery is available on their website, but at a more premium cost.

Best Replacement Battery for Dyson V10 Models

Dyson V10 replacement battery

Next, we’ll look at replacement options for the Dyson V10. Since this model is just a few years old, there won’t be as many options as the V7 or V8. There will be fewer reviews since not as many people have purchased replacement batteries. Being a newer model means V10 replacement battery alternatives will be more expensive than a V8.

Best Replacement Battery for Dyson V11 Models

There are two different V11 versions. First is the older version with the bolt-on battery. Newer versions have a detachable (or Click-in) battery where it comes off with a push of a lever. This is easily identifiable by the red button underneath.

All V11 Outsize variants have a detachable battery. If you purchase the V11 Outsize (Red), it comes with two interchangeable batteries, each with its own chargers, so I doubt you’ll be needing a replacement soon.

How to Choose the Best Dyson Replacement Battery?

Before purchasing any battery, identify the Dyson model you own. The worst thing to do is buying a battery that doesn’t fit – it’s a time and effort waster. So get it right before tapping on the buy icon.

You can find this information underneath the handle (check photo below for reference).

Dyson V10 model look up

SV12 is the same model as the Dyson V10. Another way is checking the box (if you still have it) or the warranty card.

Double and triple check the information you see on the website (whether Amazon or other online stores you purchase) to be sure.

Other things to consider

1. OEM or Replacement

Most of the options I’ve listed above are replacement batteries, not original. Some have excellent build quality and offer better run times, while others don’t hold up well.

One way to check is to look at reviews. Choose something with at least a few hundred reviews with a high rating (4.5 and above). Quickly browse through these reviews and check for any potential issues.

Since these are electronic components, there will be a fail rate. It is what it is, and the important thing is choosing a brand with a low fil rate. Again, one way of doing so is looking at consumer reviews.

Replacement batteries are compelling because of the low cost. For lower-end models like the V8, you can purchase a good quality replacement for up to a third of the cost.

2. Only Brand New

Avoid buying second-hand batteries. Since battery cells degrade over time, purchasing a second-hand defeats the purpose of buying one as there’s no way to know the battery’s exact condition. It may work for the first few weeks but suddenly can’t hold a charge.

3. Warranty

Opt for something with a money-back guarantee. This offers some protection just in case you get a damaged unit. Nearly all the options above have a one year warranty. I’ve written the warranty information but use the data as a reference only. Do your due diligence and double-check with the seller or manufacturer.

FirstPower 4000 mAh Replacement Battery for Dyson V6

This brand is a best seller in Amazon’s “Vacuum Replacement Battery” category with over 3000 reviews and counting.

FirstPower’s 4000 milliamp capacity is larger than the V6’s 2100 mAh, so it should run longer (in theory).

Since this battery has the same size as the original, it should fit in the original charging dock.

It should be compatible with all V6 variants and DC models like the DC58, DC59, DC61, DC62, and more.

Most consumers were quite happy with this battery. I’ve read run time numbers similar to the original battery, which is 20 minutes.

Shamnee Replacement 3500 mAh for Dyson V6

Another option for V6 owners looking for a replacement battery is the Shamnee 3500 mAh. It’s a smaller capacity than FirstPower, but it does come with extra bolts, which is handy if, for some reason, you’ve stripped them.

This battery will fit the V6’s dock without any issues as it has the same size.

Some reviewers say it lasted longer than the original, but they did not specify how much longer. So take it with a grain of salt.

Kunlun 4000 mAh Replacement Battery for Dyson V7

One of the more popular replacement battery options for the V7 is the Kunlun 4000 mAh. It’s compatible with all the V7 options, from the stick vacuum versions like the MotorHead to handheld options like Trigger.

Kunlun offers a 30-day money-back guarantee, which is an attractive offer considering its low price.

Consumers say this battery will fit the original charging dock.

PowerExtra V7 Replacement Battery 4000 mAh

Another option for the V7 is PowerExtra. The manufacturer claims that this battery will run 10 to 12 minutes longer than the original V7 battery (31 minutes, based on my tests).

This battery should extend the range up to 40 minutes in theory, and some consumers confirm this claim. It has the same dimensions as the original V7 battery and will fit Dyson’s dock.

PowerExtra offers a 30-day money-back guarantee for this product, so you can try it, see how it holds up, and return if you find any defects.

Flylinktech 4500 mAh Replacement Battery for Dyson V8

If PowerExtra is the most popular option for V6 and V7 options, Flylinktech takes that title for the V8.

Their flagship battery for the V8 has a large 4500 milliamp-hour capacity. Flylinktech says it can be charged and discharge up to 1300 times and will last for up to 49 minutes before needing a recharge.

I’ve tested the V8, and it runs for up to 42 minutes, so the 49-minute claim is 8 minutes more.

The manufacturer offers a 30-day money-back guarantee, 100 days return, and a 12-month warranty, plus you’ll get goodies like an extra pre-motor and post-motor HEPA filter.

Biswaye 4500 mAh 21.6V Replacement Battery for Dyson V8

We earn a commission if you click this link and make a purchase at no additional cost to you.
04/29/2021 02:07 am GMT

This battery option is a cheaper alternative to Flylinktech, but it still retains the same 4500 mAh capacity.

Biswaye says their battery uses Sanyo/Moli battery cells and compatible with the original Dyson charger.

Users who purchase this will also get a 1-year warranty plus a 90-day money-back guarantee.

Flylinktech 4000 mAh 25.2V Replacement Battery for Dyson V10

Dyson V10 is a relatively new model, so there aren’t many options for replacement batteries. Flylinktech is the highest-rated alternative so far, but with fewer reviews than its rival Kunlun.

Unfortunately, this battery will have a shorter run time than the original Dyson battery at just 30 minutes on normal and 5 minutes on max, based on Flylinktech’s claim. However, recharging is faster at only 2.8 hours.

This battery uses a Samsung battery core with an intelligent protection chip.

Dyson battery maintenance tips

Here are some tips (or best practices) to lengthen the service life of a Dyson battery. If you’ve decided to buy a replacement battery, pay attention to several of the tips below, as this can help maximize the lifespan of a non-OEM battery.

  1. Keep it plugged: Good brands have a built-in safety feature that trickle charges when it’s full, so it’s okay to keep it plugged in if you’re using it daily.
  2. Cool down after use: After using the vacuum, let the battery rest until it cools down, mainly if the max setting was used prior. This usually takes between 10 to 30 minutes. Replacement brands do specify this and warn against charging immediately after use.
  3. Charge and discharge a few times: This tip is specifically for replacement vacuums. To unlock the battery’s full capacity, charge and discharge two or three times.
  4. Avoid leaving the battery idle for extended periods: Replacement batteries will lose charge overtime. An excellent way to counteract this is keeping the charger plugged so the battery doesn’t discharge over time. If you’re not using the battery for a long time, set a reminder to charge every two or three weeks. Original Dyson batteries don’t have this issue and will keep their charge over long periods.
  5. Store in a cool place: Store the battery away from sunlight or any heat source. Make sure to charge the battery before stowing it away.
  6. Don’t use the max setting all the time: Avoid using the max setting for long bursts. Use this only as needed in high traffic areas. Doing so will overheat the battery and shorten the lifespan drastically.

How long do Dyson batteries last before replacement?

Well maintained Dyson batteries will easily last a few years. But you’ll need to follow the best practices I’ve outlined about like not using the highest setting all the time.

It’s reasonable to expect a two or three-year cycle before replacing. I’ve owned a Dyson V6 for the past five years, and the battery is still working. Granted, I don’t use it that often recently, but the fact it’s holding up is an excellent sign.

Can you replace the battery in a Dyson vacuum?

Yes, for all Dyson cordless vacuums. It requires three to four steps. All you need is a Philips screwdriver, knowledge of where the bolts are located, and some DIY skills. I’ve written guides for the Dyson V6, V8, and V10, so please check the links for more information.

Which Dyson has the best battery life?

Of all Dyson models, the V11 Outsize has the best overall run time, exceeding the 100-minute mark from its two detachable batteries. There’s no need to unscrew any bolts with the Outsize since it has a quick-release latch, enabling users to switch batteries easily.

Should I leave my Dyson on charge all the time?

Yes. This practice shouldn’t be an issue since Dyson batteries have a built-in overcharge protection system that slows the current to a trickle upon reaching full capacity, which is a similar technology found in mobile devices. It’s a best practice for frequent users to keep it plugged, so it’s always ful and ready to go.
