The Henry Quick I ordered about a month ago arrived today. Attached are pics of the unboxing. I also have a Miele Triflex but was unhappy with the small bin capacity and having to clean the filters every time the bin was emptied which was every 2-3 times that I used it. The Henry Quick uses a bag pod system and does not have any filters that have to be cleaned....26 pods were included. Based on a UK vac collectors (IBAISAIC) youtube video, he used the Henry Quick for a month and packed the bag pod solid with no loss of suction. Also the brush roll can be turned off for hard floor cleaning whereas on the Miele it does not shut off. The brush head on the Henry Quick is about 2 inches narrower than the Triflex and the headlight is not as bright. The Henry Quick has a normal speed and power boost. The battery takes 2.5 hours to charge. The battery run times are as follows: 70 min. (normal, brush off), 55 min. (normal, brush on), 16 min. (high, brush off), 14 min. (high, brush on). There is a suction relief valve on the brush head. The brush head is harder to push on my carpet on high speed but it grooms the carpet better on high. There is an air freshener pad that fits on the rear of the main unit. There is no trigger button that has to be constantly pressed..instead there is a button on the top to turn it on/off, another button to turn power head on/off, a button for normal/high speed as well as 4 indicator lights to show the charge level remaining and a bag full indicator light. There is a quick set up manual plus 3 additional full manuals in 8 or 9 different languages. There was also 3 A/C adapters - 1 for North America, 1 for the UK, and 1 for Australia.

You'll have to let us know what you think of it when you've had more chance to use it. I like the idea of it but I'm not thrilled with them being made by king clean. Certainly looks nice though and I'd think with the repution of numatic behind them they'd be a cut above the typical king clean product.

Do not worry. They are only being outsourced temporarily until Henry completes the expansion of their factory in Chard. Once the factory is powered up, they will switch to local production.

The following screenshots were taken from the official Henry Facebook account on July 24, 2022.

Ridiculous as it may sound I think i'll wait it out it's not like i'm hurting for a new cordless machine. Certainly looks promising though!

Why I like the idea of having a bagged smaller stick vacuum shaped thing.

The Henry quick is made by KingClean 🇨🇳
It's based off several existing designs and for the price I can't see the justification. Like I couldn't even see justification to order it to make a YouTube video. I really wish they had gone a different way.
I've had my hands on the baggless version it wasn't bad it wasn't great.

Enjoy your new vacuum because that's always an exciting day when you get a new vacuum cleaner.

I was at the Numatic factory for the week, they are expanding massively to help cope with demand from both the UK and NaceCare, and also to build Quick in-house. I also heard from another employee that they're moving production to somewhere else in the UK in a few months, just so they can have a bit more control (but I'm not sure of the legitimacy of that).

It's rare to have a company so loyal to its customers and its country to be this dedicated to keeping their product local despite the construction complications (I'm sure totally stopping the factory completely was never an option) so they are doing the best they can to not degrade their product I'm sure.

Them being manufactured by KingClean does not bother me all that much. KingClean, despite whatever reputation they may have, has produced competently designed and built units over the years and I know plenty of companies and brands such as Hoover, Tacony, Eureka, Bissell, Kenmore, Shark, and so forth have had units built by them and major parts sourced from them, some far better than others depending on the price point and what not. For example, the bagged uprights they manufactured for Hoover's Platinum lineup such as the UH30010, HushTone CH50400, and similar models were quite decent especially after they revised them, just to name one example of something they made that is generally regarded as a nice enough vacuum cleaner. Heck, even the Henry Cordless models such as the HVB160 had KingClean motors. KingClean obviously has exemplary resources in developing vacuum cleaners and means of producing them quickly, cheaply, and efficiently or else major companies such as SharkNinja and Numatic would not use them to get their products on their feet per se as we are seeing with the Henry Quick. They have to do what makes good business sense and we will still be delivered a product that is up to their standards despite being made in a KingClean factory.
