My Dyson Cyclone V10 cord-free vacuum cleaner stop working recently. There was a blinking red light when I pull the trigger. The same blinking red light also appeared when charging.

So I called the Dyson customer service hotline and they told me that the battery is faulty. That’s a surprise because my V10 is less than 6 months old. Luckily there’s a 2 years warranty.

Personally, I’m quite impressed with the aftercare service by Dyson. They gave me 2 options. Either they send a technician to my house to replace the battery for me or they courier a replacement battery for me to change it myself. (Note: I’m residing in Singapore. Not sure if this is the same arrangement for other countries)

Since the person said that it’s very easy to replace the battery myself, I opt for them to courier the replacement battery.

Although the Dyson V10 doesn’t have a removable battery, replacing the battery is pretty simple. All you need to do is to unscrew 3 screws, replace the battery and screw the 3 screws back. The entire process took me less than 10 minutes. (Inclusive of searching for a suitable screwdriver and taking photos for this blog)

I always find it strange that Dyson didn’t put a removable battery on their V10. But I’m glad that they make replacing the battery so easy. Currently, I don’t see Dyson selling the replacement battery on their website. However, I’m sure they will start selling it in the future when the V10 warranty expires.

Oh, and in case you are interested, the battery part number is 969352-02.

Here’s something to keep your computer desk tidy and free up some space. The Samsung Space Monitor, a minimalist design monitor that let you reclaim your work space.

In a side-by-side comparison on a 47.2 inch x 19.7 inch (120cm x 50cm) desk, the Samsung Space Monitor provides up to 40 percent more usable surface area than a conventional monitor of equivalent size – and makes it that much easier to maintain a clean desk.

When not in use, the monitor could be pushed back to sit flat against a back wall and leave your entire work surface clear. When it’s time for use, the unique arm stand allows the monitor to be easily tilted or extended from the wall.

The Samsung Space Monitor will become available from 25 March 2019. Pre-order is now on. The 27 inch and 32 inch model will retail at S$728 and S$898 respectively.
