And that’s what they use on the battery.

All Dyson cordless models use the same battery screw. So it doesn’t matter if you have a DC35, DC44, DC59, V6, V7, V8, V10, V11 or a V15, it’s the same screw to swap over the battery.

That’s called a Pozidriv screw, which isn’t to be confused with a similar-looking Phillips screw on the left below.
