With the BV 5/1 Bp, Kärcher is launching a new backpack vacuum on the market. The carrying frame has a padded shoulder and hip straps, which can be individually adjusted to suit the user. A spring steel frame with mesh keeps the machine away from the body and allows air to circulate. The vacuum cleaner is controlled via a panel on the waistband, which indicates the battery charge status.
This new backpack vacuum is very versatile and manoeuvrable; being cordless, it is ideal for fast and efficient cleaning in heavily furnished areas. BV 5/1 Bp is suitable for various uses. Apart from selective cleaning, it can also be used for maintenance cleaning in hotels, buildings, public facilities and in the transport industry - buses, trains or aircraft cabins. Thanks to the low noise level, the vacuum cleaner is also suitable for use in noisesensitive public areas.
BV 5/1 Bp features refined battery technology to deliver the power of corded machines. Power is supplied from a 36V, 7.5Ah lithium-ion battery. This new lithium-ion battery enables the vacuum cleaner, for the first time, to deliver the same power as a mains-operated machine.
With a fully charged battery, the vacuum cleaner has a run time of 24 minutes. The power input in normal operation is approximately 730W. BV 5/1 Bp's eco-efficiency mode can also extend the run time of the machine. Operated in this energysaving mode, it only requires 400W, which is more than enough for numerous cleaning tasks. While the consumption of the vacuum cleaner is almost halved, the run time is doubled from 24 to 46 minutes. For continuous operation, only two batteries are required in the energy-saving mode and the new quick-charger BC 1/7 fully charges a drained battery in only 60 minutes. Battery replacement with the new Kärcher BV 5/1 Bp backpack vacuum is simple at the push of a button.
