Review of the vertical cordless vacuum cleaner with a self-cleaning station Polaris PVCSDC 2002

08.06.2024 09:30

Upright vacuum cleaners may not be suitable for long-term use — for example, for thoroughly cleaning a large room. Either the garbage bin will overflow, or the battery will run out.

This cannot be said about the Polaris PVCSDC 2002: it comes with two batteries, and the self-cleaning base is equipped with a powerful pump that cleans not only the garbage container, but also the filters. You can evaluate how well its two motor attachments cope with cleaning the floor, the ease of use of the device, as well as its power and noise level while reading.

* Contrary to popular belief, this is not the time limit after which the device will necessarily break down. However, after this period, the manufacturer ceases to bear any responsibility for its performance and has the right to refuse to repair it, even for a fee.


The vacuum cleaner comes in a glossy cardboard box with full-color printing and branded design. On the front side of the box, the manufacturer posted a photo of the device and listed its key features: high power (500 W), a three-liter dust container for efficient and easy cleaning of the container, and a function for auto-adjusting suction power.

Also mentioned are an LED display, ultraviolet treatment of the contents of the dust container, long battery life (about 60 minutes), and a rich package, including two batteries and three replaceable garbage bags.

The manufacturer also reminds us of a two-year warranty for the device. Although the vacuum cleaner is made in China, Polaris marketers do not miss the opportunity to emphasize that production is carried out under the control of a Swiss company in order to emphasize the European origin of the brand.

The first thing we saw in the box was a large card covering the entire area of ​​the top cover with quick start instructions. Underneath we found:

  • motor unit of a vacuum cleaner with a garbage bin installed
  • two batteries
  • extension tube
  • motorized floor brush
  • motorized furniture attachment
  • nozzle attachment and brush attachment
  • base station for charging and self-cleaning of the device with a disposable garbage bag installed
  • two extra bags
  • set of filters for vacuum cleaner
  • power cable
  • user guide
  • warranty card

At first sight

The vacuum cleaner is made of white matte plastic, pleasant to the touch. A few decorative elements, including buttons and latches, are gray-silver in color. Thanks to the fashionable modern coating, the device looks solid, strict and fits harmoniously into any interior.

Polaris PVCSDC 2002 is designed according to a longitudinal design: a cylindrical cyclone filter is located parallel to the air path. The air flow with dust and debris, upon reaching the motor unit, turns 180° and swirls inside the container.

The engine is located in the middle part of the device, behind it there are exhaust grilles. The air coming out of the vacuum cleaner passes through a removable filter and leaves the body through openings on both sides. This arrangement prevents uncollected dust from rising into the air, which eliminates discomfort during cleaning.

A rectangular battery is connected to the bottom of the motor block. The Polaris PVCSDC 2002 comes with two batteries with a capacity of 2500 mAh each. Each of them ensures autonomous operation of the device for up to 60 minutes.

Next to the 10-pin battery connector there is a colored LED that indicates the status of the battery during charging. On the opposite side there is a mandatory nameplate with information about the manufacturer and certificates of conformity.

The end wall of the cylindrical waste bin opens with a push-button latch and tilts 90°. This allows you to shake out the container without getting your hands dirty. When installing the device on the base station, the hatch opens automatically to allow the self-cleaning system to operate.

The body of the garbage disposal is made of transparent plastic, allowing you to easily inspect the contents.

The air flow with dust and debris enters the cylinder and swirls around the central element. Heavier and larger debris is thrown away by a plastic “skirt” and remains in the lower part, while small particles are filtered using a micro-perforated steel mesh.

The dust that does pass through the mesh ends up on a black foam pre-filter. Behind it is a fine cleaning disc element.

The exhaust filter at the rear of the engine block, behind the engine, is responsible for the final removal of microparticles. It is an oval HEPA mounted on a plastic frame.

The motorized floor cleaning nozzle has an unusually soft stroke and high mobility. The hinge mechanism allows it to flexibly bend 60° to the right and left, as well as from 0° to 90° forward and backward. The attachment does not have a special parking position.

The nozzle has brush elements on the right, left and back, which improve adherence to the surface and facilitate sliding.

The rotor of this brush head has three V-shaped rows of soft synthetic bristles. If necessary, the brush can be removed for cleaning using the latch on the bottom surface.

On the front of the brush there are six LEDs that highlight the work area with a bright green light.

In the floor cleaning configuration, a telescopic aluminum extension tube is connected to the vacuum cleaner. Wires run inside it to power the motorized attachment.

The vacuum cleaner tube has a minimum folded length of 385 mm and a maximum unfolded length of 600 mm. This design makes the vacuum cleaner easy to use for people of any height.

The Polaris PVCSDC 2002 kit includes another motorized brush — designed for cleaning furniture manually. Its design is simpler: the movable element of the housing allows only rotation of the nozzle within 90°.

The rotor here is a cylindrical brush with two spiral rows of long, stiff bristles. It is removed from the end part.

The non-motorized attachment kit consists of an oval clothes brush with long, soft bristles and a crevice nozzle for hard-to-reach areas.

The charging and self-cleaning station is a white column made of the same matte plastic as the vacuum cleaner body. It rests steadily on a rectangular stand.

In the center of the front part there is a trash compartment closed with a lid with two latches. The manufacturer placed a sticker on it explaining how the self-cleaning system works.

When this system operates, a powerful vacuum cleaner built into the base sucks out the contents of the garbage container. It falls into a disposable bag made of synthetic material with a plastic neck, which is equipped with a rubber seal.

The bag's capacity is almost five times greater than the volume of the waste container in the motor unit, so you don't have to worry about it overfilling for quite a long time.

An ultraviolet LED is installed inside the compartment to disinfect the contents, and at the bottom there is an additional filter that protects the engine from accidental debris.

At the bottom of the base there is a power connector. The device is connected to the electrical network using the familiar IEC C13 “computer” cable with a Euro plug and grounding contacts.

There are two compartments at the top end of the base station. One of them is designed for self-cleaning of the motor unit, and the other can accommodate a backup battery. Both seats are equipped with contacts for charging batteries.

When installing the vacuum cleaner on the base, the end cover of the waste container opens automatically. The vacuum cleaner built into the station removes dust and dirt from the garbage receptacle, while simultaneously cleaning the filters. However, the container lid does not close automatically; it must be closed manually before the next cleaning.

The design of the station allows you to store a vacuum cleaner with an extension tube and a nozzle for cleaning the floor. However, unfortunately, there are no devices for storing the three remaining attachments here.

The vacuum cleaner also includes two additional disposable garbage bags and a fine filter.

The user manual is a 52-page A5 brochure printed on thick glossy paper.

As always with Polaris, the quality of printing is above all praise. The color photographs and illustrations showing the design and use of the vacuum cleaner are legible and clear, and the text is easy to read.

The operating manual is compiled in three languages: Russian, Ukrainian and Kazakh. The Russian-language part takes 20 pages and describes in detail the design of the device, its operation and care rules. For those who want to immediately start using the vacuum cleaner without reading the documentation, the kit includes a brief quick start guide.

The kit also includes a warranty card that requires a seller's mark: without this mark, the warranty may be invalid.


The control panel of the vacuum cleaner is located on the top of the cylindrical body. It contains LED indicators and a power button.

The display shows the current power and charge level. The battery status indicator is represented by a symbolic battery with three segments reflecting the maximum, average and minimum charges.

This model offers four operating modes:

  1. «Auto»: medium power, turns on by default when the device starts. The vacuum cleaner is not equipped with an air pollution sensor and does not switch programs automatically depending on the amount of dust.
  2. «Eco»: mode with the longest operating time and minimum power.
  3. «Max»: increased power.
  4. «Turbo»: short-term work with maximum effort. This mode is activated by a long (2 seconds) press on the power switch button. After ten seconds of operation, the vacuum cleaner returns to the previous mode.
Between the operating mode and battery level sections on the display there are indicators for various faults.

After unpacking and before using the vacuum cleaner for the first time, you must fully charge it, like any other battery-powered device. To do this, select a location to install the base station and connect it to the power supply.

The design of the base allows you to simultaneously charge both batteries included in the kit: one in a special compartment of the station, and the second on the vacuum cleaner itself. The charger's power does not depend on the number of batteries: if both are connected, charging will take twice as long.

To extend the life of the batteries, it is recommended to periodically swap them, preferably after each cleaning. If for some reason only one battery is used, the second one should be stored in a charged state and periodically recharged (at least once every three months).

The charge level of the battery installed on the vacuum cleaner is displayed on the display, and the status of the second battery is indicated by a two-color LED on the body. When the red light turns green, you can start working.

When used for floor cleaning, the Polaris PVCSDC 2002 vacuum cleaner is convenient and well balanced. The floor nozzle allows you to easily reach hard-to-reach places thanks to its compact design and convenient hinge. Cleaning under cabinets and sofas is not inconvenient.

However, the floor brush does not have a special parking position, so during pauses you have to either return the vacuum cleaner to the base or lean it against walls and furniture, which can lead to possible damage to the device.

Despite the simple design of the rotor with three rows of brush elements without lamellas, the vacuum cleaner provides effective cleaning of all types of surfaces — from parquet and laminate to soft surfaces.

Green illumination of the work area, like the usual white illumination of other models, helps work in rooms with insufficient lighting and increases cleaning efficiency even in bright light. The low position of the LEDs makes it easier to find small debris that may be difficult to see in normal lighting.

When used for manual cleaning, the vacuum cleaner remains as convenient as when sweeping. It is light and well balanced, which ensures comfortable operation. The set includes attachments (electric brushes for upholstered furniture and two non-motorized ones), which are enough to solve most cleaning tasks.

Handheld nozzles easily combine with a telescopic extension tube to effectively clean curtain rods, top shelves and other hard-to-reach areas.

Handheld nozzles easily combine with a telescopic extension tube to effectively clean curtain rods, top shelves and other hard-to-reach areas.

The self-cleaning process itself takes about ten seconds, which is quite enough to completely clean the container. In the attached photos you can see the container before and after this procedure.

The powerful air flow not only removes debris from the container, but also effectively sucks dust out of the fine filters. After several cycles of cleaning and self-cleaning, only minor dirt is visible on the inner and outer surfaces of the pleated pre-filter — in this mode it will last a long time without additional manual or mechanized cleaning.

The exhaust filter remains virtually free of contamination even after several intensive cleanings: the overall filtration quality of the Polaris PVCSDC 2002 can be assessed as excellent.


After each use of the vacuum cleaner, you should start automatic cleaning of the dust container. After cleaning is completed, it is also recommended to check the electric brush and, if necessary, remove any accumulated dirt from the rotor.

It is recommended to manually clean the dust container every ten uses. To do this, remove the cyclone filter and rinse it together with the housing under running water, and clean the HEPA element by tapping it on a hard non-metallic surface. You should also carry out a similar procedure with the exhaust filter.

Disposable dust bags should be replaced when they are full. New bags and filters can be purchased on the manufacturer's website.
