Single Button!!


2) Lightweight. True, it is not going to last as long as the V15 because you are compromising the battery for the light weight, but to me it is a trade off I am willing to have. This weight for me is just right, and because it is so powerful, I can vacuum my whole house in 30 minutes. I will preface by saying I have two Roombas, two cats, a partner, and no children. For a bigger house, or a house with more people, I am not sure if 30 minutes of battery life is enough. If you want to buy a newer model-V12 vs. V15, I recommend holding these vacuums and getting a feel for yourself to see which one is right for you.
