  • Gtech Offers Special Promotion on AirRam Cordless Vacuum Cleaner

    Brookstone shoppers to receive $50 gift card with purchase of a Gtech AirRam cordless vacuum cleaner

    Gtech USA today announced today a special promotion for Brookstone AirRam shoppers. From now to August 10, 2013, customers will receive a gift card worth $50 off any item in Brookstone (stores and online) with the purchase of an AirRam cordless vacuum cleaner.

    "This special promotion is a great opportunity for customers to get their hands on the AirRam they've heard so much buzz about," said Steve Schwartz, Brookstone vice president merchandising and product development. "We really believe this vacuum changes the way you clean and take care of your home. We're excited to offer such a rich promotion to our shoppers and invite them to see a demo at their local Brookstone store."

    The Gtech AirRam is the first cordless, bagless, canister-free vacuum on the market that in third-party tests of cleaning performance, has been shown to outperform a number of cordless vacuums and performs as well as various corded vacuum brands**.

    The cordless vacuum cleaner represents the most significant evolution in vacuum development over the last 20 years, and brings myriad first-time technological and design developments to the category, including:

    • Dirt-to-tray technology: Unlike any other vacuum on the market (cordless, and those with a canister or bag) the AirRam’s direct dirt-to-tray technology compresses dust and debris into bales that can be emptied right into the trash
    • Gtech data bridge program: The AirRam can be connected to a computer via USB to monitor battery life, energy usage, energy cost savings, and the calories burned while using the AirRam.
    • Ultra-low profile: The AirRam has an ultra-low profile that allows for easy cleaning under chairs and tables clean any type of floor (tile, carpet or wood) without attachments or any adjustments and is only 7.7 pounds (less than half the weight of a standard vacuum cleaner)
    • Long run time:  A full charge takes four hours and powers the vacuum for a runtime of up to 40 minutes, allowing consumers to clean an average U.S.  home on a single charge.

    The Gtech AirRam is available for purchase from Brookstone stores and at Brookstone.com and at select Brookstone retailers nationwide.

  • Experts Weigh in Gtech Cordless Vacuum Cleaner

    The AirRam is on fire!

    Media and public alike have unanimously cried out in praise of the energy-saving, lightweight cordless vacuum cleaner, and we can’t say we’re surprised. It’s light, it’s efficient, it saves energy, and it looks like a friendly companion to any American home.

    In case you’re not convinced, we’ve let the experts speak for us. Here’s an installment of the AirRam Review Roundup, for your reading pleasure:

    apttherapyApartment Therapy

    ApartmentTherapy.com’s rave review of the AirRam highlights all the keystone features of our lovely little vacuum, focusing on the energy-efficient lithium-ion battery and the absence of a cord. It also mentions that the AirRam’s perfect for getting the little things kids seem to leave everywhere.

    Wired

    This review from Wired shows that the AirRam can be fun for your children to use, which is good news for you. It also dissects the important comparison between a Dyson model and the superior AirRam.

    Slash Gear

    Slash Gear’s review of the AirRam says that it revolutionizes vacuuming, and we tend to agree. The focus here is on energy-efficiency (100 watts per use, rather than the industry average of 2000 watts) and the data bridge, which lets you keep your finger on the pulse of your energy use (both in the device and in your body; the calorie counter handles the latter).

    Popular Mechanics

    A Popular Mechanics blog pitted the Gtech AirRam against a New York City apartment with excellent results. This review highlights just how user-friendly the AirRam is, with power bars to show how much time you have before charging, the Data bridge again, and how easily it fits under your furniture.

    These are just the heaviest hitters of the multitudinous reviews out there already since the AirRam made a name for itself in America this year. User reviews abound, and there’s really nothing negative to say about the AirRam! We’ll keep rounding them up as they’re released, but that should give you something to ponder for the interim. Let the AirRam redesign the way you clean your home or apartment, and you’ll see what we’re all so excited about.

  • Easy Exercise Tips For More Energy From the Energy Efficient Lightweight AirRam

    The summer months are perfect weather for stretching our legs outdoors and enjoying nature at the same time.

    Exercise activates your endorphins, elevates your serotonin levels, and generally puts you at peace with the world. Cardiovascular activity even improves brain activity and helps you think clearly.

    Fitness is connected to the green revolution in an unspoken way; that’s why our lightweight vacuum cleaner data bridge program includes a calorie counter. You can chart your fitness while you save energy. Now, isn’t that something?

    In that spirit, here are some tips for staying fit this summer.

    runing on beachjExercise briefly upon waking.

    This is better than a cup of coffee. If you get your heart rate up first thing in the morning, it will activate your brain activity, too. Fresh air and cardiovascular activity will give you the tools you need to attack the day with gusto. If you wake up a little earlier than you normally would, just ten or fifteen minutes, you’ll give yourself far more energy with exercise than the extra sleep would give you.

     

    pushupsPushups and sit-ups do wonders for you.

    In an era of Crossfit, Pilates, and Zumba, exercise can seem like an overwhelming task to embark upon, but let’s not forget the simple merits of pushups and sit-ups. Both activities engage your core throughout, which improves your stability and overall strength, not just your six pack. You can’t burn these muscles out, so you can do them as regularly as you’d like. If you do push ups and sit-ups every day, your fitness will be far more well rounded.

    walker

     

     

    Walk, run, or bike instead of driving.

    Not only will this improve your endurance, lungpower, and general fitness, you will also help fight pollution. How often do you drive to the corner store that’s two or three blocks away? Just walk it next time, and enjoy the air outside.

    Make health and fitness an inseparable part of your lifestyle, like a second nature, and you will have a happier existence. Exercise with your Gtech AirRam upright vacuum cleaner, and count your calories on the data bridge program. Take the simple steps listed above, and the rewards will be great. It’s beautiful outside this summer, so go enjoy it!

  • Vacuums in Pop Culture

    Last time we took a spin around the living room with our cordless vacuum cleaner the AirRam, we felt that he was smiling at us. Maybe we took a few spins than needed aroAirRam1und the room, but we think the AirRam is starting to develop his own personality here at Gtech.

    And if the AirRam is developing that pop cultural appeal, we have to wonder: where does the AirRam fit into the greater conversation of vacuums throughout pop culture history? Well, we’re still figuring it out. We’re still getting to know this dapper little guy! In the mean time, here’s a series of other vacuums from pop culture past:

    Famous Vacuums in Pop Culture

    kirby1

     

    Kirby, from “The Brave Little Toaster” (1987)

    He was grumpy, nervy, neurotic, and also endearing. He grew into a hero over the course of the film.

    kirby 2

     

    Kirby, from several Nintendo games

    Not a vacuum, you say? Apparently, you’ve forgotten that Kirby’s signature move was to    suck his opponents up (presumably into tidy bales) and absorb their powers. Also, he was undeniably adorable.

    nono

     

    Noo Noo, the incredibly bizarre vacuum friend of the Teletubbies

    He was their excitable compadre who periodically lost control and vacuumed up all of their possessions. Why? It was the Teletubbies; we have no idea.

     

    vacu2

     

    The people-sucking vacuums in 2010’s “Skyline”

    They took alien abduction to a new level, vacuuming literally thousands of people up at a stretch. But how are they on carpets?

    hocus pocus

     

    The vacuum serving as a witch’s broom in 1993’s “Hocus Pocus”

    Sarah Jessica Parker loses her broom, and a magical vacuum comes to her rescue. See the magic sparks flying out from the bottom? We wouldn’t trust it on our carpet.

     

    darkside

     

    The killer vacuum a child willed into existence on “Hush” from the 80s horror series “Tales from the Darkside”

    Just what it sounds like. It sucked… SOULS!

     

    These are just a couple sentences in a much longer conversation: vacuums across the pop culture encyclopedia. What will the legacy of our AirRam be at the end of the day? Only time will tell, but we’re certain it will be one of the good guy robots, not one of the bad guys. After all, this cordless vacuum cleaner is just way too good looking to be a villain.

  • Join the Bagless Vacuum Cleaner Revolution with Gtech

    Gtech has been honored with a media appearance again, this time in SlashGear, a reputable gadget weblog that ranked 29th in Technorati’s Top 100 List of Authoritative Blogs. We’re flattered, again, but we’ve known all along that the AirRam would change the upright cordless vacuum forever. SlashGear’s AirRam review highlights all the special details that set our bagless vacuum cleaner apart from every other vacuum. Don’t let its simple demeanor fool you; this vacuum has quite a lot going behind the scenes.

    Gtech AirRam

    The article reads “It boasts a 3-inch, slim profile and only weighs 7.7 pounds, making it easy to move around, even around the trickiest places like under the couch.” We absolutely agree, but I don’t think it’s fair to say the AirRam is boasting. Its unassuming body does not need to beat you over the head with its advantages; the proof is in the padding after you’ve vacuumed your floor with it.

    This glowing analysis of Gtech’s innovative cordless vacuum cleaner hits all the important features of the AirRam: its energy efficiency, its vacuuming power, its Data Bridge which tells you power savings and the calories you’ve burned vacuuming, and its appearance, but you should know all that by now. And if you didn’t, just pick up an AirRam at Brookstone for $349.95 and find out for yourself!

  • Celebrate Christmas in July with our Cordless Vacuum Cleaner

    santa1It’s the most wonderful time of year! America is a country that is certainly known for its festivity, and Christmas in July has become a cult phenomenon over the years.

    We love to give and to receive, because new stuff is always fun, isn’t it? This Christmas in July, why not make a gift of the ultimate cordless vacuum cleaner, and share the joys of a Gtech AirRam? There are, after all, many, many messes to be made in the summertime.

    The kids may be back from school, the beach sand may follow your feet inside, and you’ll probably host a party or two. Christmas in July extends beyond the gift of giving, however, it’s a miniature culture. Have a party, bust out that Santa Claus suit and make those red pants into cutoffs!

    Here’s our salute to the beloved pretend-real holiday, Christmas in July.

    santa2Christmas in July has multiple source points in history. The first documented use of the phrase was from Camp Keystone, an all-girls sleep-away camp in 1933, and the festivities included an actual tree, presents, and visit from Santa Claus, himself.

    In 1942, the Calvary Baptist Church in D.C. found a humanitarian niche with Christmas in July, rounding up gifts to be eventually distributed among various missions worldwide, to the underprivileged. The U.S. Post Office teamed up with military official to launch their own Christmas in July in 1944; it was designed to set up early gift mailing to men and women overseas. Unfortunately for them, our cordless vacuum cleaner wasn’t invented just yet.

    This Christmas in July, have a real celebration. Give the holiday more than just a name; live it! We recommend going all out, because if you’re going to do something, it’s worth doing right. Exchange gifts, have Santa pay a visit, decorate accordingly, and really try to feel it.

    The reason: why not? There’s an indescribable something to Christmas, and who says you can’t reach that feeling in July? Best of luck, and Merry Christmas in July!
