A few weeks ago, I wrote about the Dibea F6 Cordless Vacuum Cleaner – a product very similar to Dyson V6at least in terms of appearance.
Now, I’m going to take a closer look at Dibea C17 Wireless 2-in-1. This is the Brother to F6 But with more oomph and a different set of tools.
Like the F6, this cordless vacuum cleaner or in GearBest terms has the same design as the Dyson cordless vacuum cleaner. It uses a trigger mechanism and a heavy-duty design with interchangeable hardware to give it more versatility.
The difference between this and Dyson is that the trigger mechanism locks when pressed. This frees up your fingers and puts less pressure on your wrists when brushing.
Press the trigger a second time and it activates the ultimate function you’ll need when cleaning a larger pile of clutter or when cleaning carpets.
- Very good cleaning performance on bare floors and low-pile carpets
- Easy to maneuver due to the rotating head
- Dirt container is easy to empty
- You don’t need to hold down the trigger mechanism to use this vacuum that puts less strain on your wrist
- There is a large gap of 2 between the brush and the edge of the main cleaning head which means this will not clean the edges well
- The brush tool is too short to clean upholstery effectively
- You cannot connect the adapter directly to the vacuum cleaner to charge it
- The filtration is not very good – you will need to clean the filter often
What do you expect from Dibea C17?
Please watch this video before reading the rest of the review to know what to expect from this product…
This product is very similar but different from Dyson Cordless Vacuum Cleaner.
Let’s look at the similarities first.
These two brands use the same design – trigger mechanism, heavy-duty drive design on top, detachable stick and interchangeable tools.
To make matters clear, Dyson is the pioneer in this design and Dibea is closest to it in terms of copying the design.
However, Dibea does have some improvements over the Dyson that I think are worth noting.
No need to press the trigger
The first improvement will be the trigger mechanism. On a Dyson, you will need to hold down the trigger to start the engine.
You do not need to do this in Dibea. Press it once and it will snap into place.
This frees your wrist from the stress of pulling the trigger and makes cleaning less stressful. If you try to use a Dyson you will know what I mean.
Press the trigger a second time and it activates maximum suction which is great when cleaning carpets or rugs.
easy emptying bin
The second improvement worth noting would be the dirt basket.
Dibea did something Dyson wasn’t able to do in a V6 which was to prevent dirt from clumping in the cyclonic portion of the filter.
This is a huge improvement that makes unpacking much easier. If you’ve watched the entire video, you’ll know what I mean.
Dibea also comes with a cyclone filtration system similar to Dyson’s but note that it doesn’t have as many cyclones. So it won’t do a good job of keeping dirt out of the trash.
The filter is washable but be sure to dry it well before putting it back on the engine.
This vacuum cleaner comes with 3 tools – the main motorized brush, the crevice tool and the brush tool.
The main cleaning tool contains a soft-bristled motorized carbon fiber brush – a similar brush found in Dyson V6 and V8 a series. These bristles work great at picking up small bits of dirt like dust and powder.
In my cleaning test, it also did a pretty decent job of picking up larger bits of dirt like rolling.
My main gripe for tools is going to be the brush tool. It’s a very short way to clean upholstery.
The cleaning head also rotates from side to side making it easy to maneuver. It can also turn a dime by 120 degrees. But it is not as flexible as Dyson although it is very close.
Cleaning the spaces under the furniture will not be a problem because the cleaning head is almost flat. If you have a bed with at least 8 inches of space, this vacuum cleaner should be able to clean those areas with ease.
Li-ion battery 22.2 V
Like the Dyson, the Dibea C17 also comes with a lithium-ion battery that takes 4-5 hours to fully charge.
It’ll run for 40 minutes in normal mode and 20 minutes in max mode – 14 minutes more than a Dyson V6 Absolute and 12 minutes more than a V8 Absolute.
It also comes with a 3-bar LED battery status on top to let you know how much power is left from the battery.
This cordless appliance is powered by a 120W motor that produces 4,000Pa of suction in normal mode and 7,000Pa of suction in max mode.
Before I tested this product, I was skeptical that it would perform as well as the Dibea F6 on the carpet.
The biggest problem with the F6 is that it will shed big piles of dirt. At first, I thought this would be an issue with the low design of the cleaning head.
But when I tested this vacuum, I discovered that suction also plays an important role in the equation.
Look at this before and after photo…
After a single swipe, this void was able to capture almost everything in its path. There was a bit of snow shoveling but that’s because the two front wheels were in the way.
On a very big pile of dirt there is some snow plowing but nowhere near as good as an F6.
Carpet and rug cleaning
I did the same test on the carpet which is to vacuum a large pile of dirt and then make one pass back and forth. This is what happened…
After one pass, I was able to pick up almost all surface dirt. Again, I was surprised because the bristles of this broom are soft.
for product It costs less than $100The performance of the carpet is impressive. But remember that you do not expect this product to deeply clean anything. It’s an in-between cleaner that picks up surface dirt – that’s it.

Where can I buy this?
This stick broom is also available on Amazon. But Amazon has free 2-day shipping when you sign up for their Prime program.
If you need a cordless vacuum cleaner and don’t want to spend more than $100 on one, take a look at this product. It won’t clean carpets as deeply but does a good job of cleaning surface dirt.
In my cleaning tests, it had enough power to pick up a huge pile of dirt.
Even if he had some snow plows, he was eventually able to clean up most of the dirt strewn on the ground.
If there are downsides, one of them will be the very short brush tool. If Dibea could add about 2 or 3 inches, that would be perfect.
Another reason is the need to clean the filter more often because it does not contain as many cyclones as Dyson.
But this product literally costs a fraction of a Dyson So from a performance standpoint, it’s a great deal.
Budget Cordless Vacuum Cleaner Excellent Floor Cleaning

- Values - 95%
The Dibea C17 is an excellent option that offers consumers who don’t want to spend more than $100 for a stick vacuum cleaner a high-quality option that can clean floors. Based on my cleaning tests, it scored high on cleaning surface dirt on hard floors and low-pile carpets which came as a surprise to me because I wasn’t expecting much. Unfortunately, the bristles are soft so don’t expect too much in terms of deep cleaning carpets. Don’t expect Dyson-like quality as this is a budget vacuum, but all attachments have a latch that locks them securely in place – something not very common with products in this price range.
