Cordless vacuums are a great invention, but I wondered why no manufacturer including Dyson enables you to also use them with a power cord?

If you are cleaning and the battery runs out with only a small amount of cleaning left to finish, it would be useful to plug it in with a cord, rather than wait 5 hours for the battery to recharge.

I know you would need a much more powerful adapter to run the cleaner directly from the mains, it could not be done with the supplied charger.

As a cordless cleaner you wouldn't normally want to run it off the mains, but occasionally in an emergency it would be a useful feature.

This is a valid point. The trouble is in the UK we now have EU rules surrounding corded machines. Corded machines also need to have ratings on pickup performance, cordless machines do not have the same rules. That could be why they have not yet done a machine that can be used as both. Some machines do come with a couple of batteries so that way you can extend your time while still being cordless
