Miele unveiled its first rechargeable handstick vacuum cleaner at IFA press conference. The flexibility of the Triflex with its 3-in-1 concept, patents pending, was graphically presented on stage by Executive Director and Co-Proprietor Markus Miele. As the company explains, rechargeable vacuum cleaners are characterised by simple and convenient work and are already on a par with traditional canister vacuum cleaners on account of their good suction performance. The first Miele unit in this segment gives pride of place to versatility. “With the Triflex, we are convinced that we have the most versatile rechargeable handstick currently available on the market. A true Miele product, developed and manufactured at our Bielefeld plant”, said Markus Miele at the press conference, and demonstrated how the unit can be converted in just a few simple steps to cater for all requirements around the home. Further special feature: the battery can be recharged either at the wall bracket or externally. Cleaning times can be doubled using a spare rechargeable battery.
