Gtech AirRam Mk2 now released

Peter Morrell goes to the launch of this revolutionary new cordless vacuum cleaner

AboutMyGeneration reviewed the original Gtech AirRam way back in 2012 and has since watched the company grow dramatically both in terms of AirRam units sold and and new additions to the product range like cordless garden tools and an electric bike. The company has recently launched the new AirRam Mk2 and AMG has been taking a look at the impressive new model

Here is a summary of Gtech AirRam Mk2’s new features:

New patent-pending AirLOC technology

Gtech’s patented AirLOC system picks up larger debris from the surface of the floor and cleans into deep crevices. This combined with the short wide air path helps the AirRam Mk2 clean even more dirt from carpets, hard floors and from crevices.


Thanks to its revolutionary design which does away with so many bulky parts, the AirRam Mk2 weighs just 3.5kg, that’s half the weight of many mains powered upright vacuums, making it easy to lift and carry up the stairs.

Cleaner emptying

A new dirt collection system makes AirRam Mk2 easier to empty with even less mess. Dirt is collected into the head of the vacuum, moving it just 4cms before compressing it into the unique, snail-shell bin. This compression technology enables the AirRam Mk2 to pack away an impressive 2.4L of dust and debris into its 0.8L capacity bin. When full, eject this tubular bale of compressed debris straight into the bin with a slide of the dirt ejector arm.

Long running time

AirRam Mk2’s power comes from a professional grade 22V lithium-ion battery. Its energy efficient design means you can clean your home twice on one charge, running for up to 40 minutes; a 1-hour short charge will deliver a burst of additional run time. A 4stage LED display indicates how much charge is left in the battery and is rechargeable whilst in situ, or when removed from the head of the vacuum cleaner.

Easy to clean

Simply slide out the filter, tap it clean and replace. The brush bar has a release button to allow for complete removal and a cutting guide to make hair removal a cinch.

Easy to operate

The on/off switch is now foot operated so no bending, and there is a telescopic handle which is activated by a simple button mechanism that locks and unlocks the handle at full height during operation, and half height for easy storage. Move effortlessly from carpet to hard-floors and back again, with no settings to change. AirRam Mk2 has an ultra-low profile, allowing you to reach under chairs and tables and its edge cleaning technology helps you get into those awkward corners and makes it great for cleaning the stairs. Its cordless technology means no more fighting with snagged cords or plug sockets.


New, full width LED searchlights mean there’s now no place for dirt to hide.

Complete Cordless Cleaning

Combine the AirRam Mk2’s 40-minute run time with the Gtech Multi which has been enhanced with a 30% power increase giving a 20-minute run time, and you have an hour of floor to ceiling cleaning for your home.

Where to Buy?

Buy exclusively from priced £199, or £299 when combined with the new Gtech Multi Mk2 handheld vacuum cleaner.

Gtech Promise

Gtech offers a two year guarantee to fix or replace the Gtech AirRam Mk 2 if anything breaks as a result of faulty manufacturing. If you aren’t happy with your AirRam Mk2, Gtech will either exchange it or give you a full refund within the first 30 days.

The AboutMyGeneration Verdict

This is another winner from Gtech, it’s been very well thought through and we liked the modular design which allows the AirRam to be assembled in seconds. We were particularity impressed with the neat emptying mechanism and the ability to pick up large pieces of debris.
