Dyson is the brand that dominates the vacuum cleaner industry but some people are put off by the high price tag of the products.
We dive into the key similarities and differences between these vacuums so you can decide which offers the best value for money for your needs.
For ease of use, both products come with an included docking station for charging. You can connect the vacuum to the dock when you are finished and it will charge ready for the next use.
The Dyson takes 3.5 hours to fully charge while the Kogan takes 6 hours to fully charge.
Both products offer 2 modes. The Kogan model features a cyclonic system and offers a standard energy-efficient mode and a boost mode. You can clean carpet and hard floor effortlessly in standard mode and the higher suction boost can be used to remove more stubborn dirt.
The V7 features a 2 tier radial cyclone system and has a powerful mode for longer cleaning and a max mode for up to 6 minutes of high suction power. The strong suction helps to capture microscopic dirt and will leave floors free from pet hair and dirt.
Empty Bin Feature
Each of these stick vacuums has a simple dirt ejector system that helps prevent you from having to come into contact with the dust once collected. You just pull a lever or press a button and the dirt will fall straight into the bin.
Both of the stick vacuum cleaner models make around the same amount of noise (+/- 70dB) when in use.
The Kogan T7 cordless vacuum cleaners weigh just 1.41kg making them lightweight and easy to manoeuvre. It is 305 x 117 x 225mm and offers a dustbin capacity of 0.5L.
The V7 weighs slightly more at 2.32kg. This is still light for a vacuum and it measures 210 x 1243 x 250mm. The dustbin is 0.54L so offers only a fraction more than the Kogan.
Both of these stick vacuum cleaners are cordless and rely on batteries to work.
The T7 offers up to 45 minutes of battery life per charge and takes 6 hours to fully charge.
For added convenience, the Kogan comes with an additional battery so you can just switch it and continue vacuuming.
The Dyson offers up to 30 minutes of use and takes 3.5 hours to fully charge.
The Kogan T7 has a HEPA filter that captures 99.97% of dust. It is ideal for trapping fine dust and allergens. The vacuum includes an extra filter for when the original needs to be replaced.
After using this, buying replacement filters will cost $9.99 and should be replaced every 6-12 months.
The V7 stick vacuum uses whole machine filtration and includes a washable lifetime filter.
Both of the stick vacuum cleaners use a motorhead. The Kogan has a 360-degree nozzle and comes with a few useful accessories.
The pet brush is perfect for trapping cat and dog hair quickly and the multi crevice nozzle is best for getting into the corners and hard to reach areas.
The V7 Motorhead is ergonomically designed to work on all surfaces so it can handle carpet and hard floors with ease. The set includes a direct drive cleaner head, a crevice tool and a combination tool including a soft brush for furnishings.
The Kogan offers 45W of vacuuming power and the Dyson offers 21W in standard mode and 100W in max mode.

Making Your Selection
As you can see, there are many similarities between these two products. When we compare them side by side the Kogan T7 proves to be an excellent alternative to the Dyson model.
The Kogan vacuum is lighter, offers a longer run time and uses a HEPA filter to catch 99.97% of dust and allergens.

Unfortunately, the T7 does take a while to fully charge but the additional battery helps to ensure you can get all the vacuuming done without needing to wait for the product to recharge.

It is covered with a 2-year warranty and you can buy it with confidence that it is going to last a long time without any reduction in its efficiency.
