We are often asked on these pages for a Dyson battery screwdriver.
Or more correctly, which is the correct screwdriver to use to remove a Dyson battery.
Confusion arises because most screws on your Dyson are Torx screws like this.
For those screws, you use the Torx screwdrivers discussed in >this article< here.
But as Dyson like to confuse you, the one screw on a Dyson cordless that isn’t a Torx looks like this.
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.
To prevent slippage and damaging of screws, you should only use a Phillips head screwdriver on a Phillips head screw, and you should only use a Pozidriv screwdriver on a Pozidriv screw.
Pozidriv screwdrivers come in a variety of sizes as well, so let’s just cut to the chase here and get you fixed up with a Dyson battery screwdriver.
The screwdriver you want to remove Dyson batteries is this one.
With this specific tip.
And here’s where to get one from:
You can get one on eBay >here<
You can get one from Manchester Vacs >here<
They’re not expensive and you will encounter other things around the home that use that specific screw, so it’s a handy addition to any home toolbox. And a must-have for the Dyson trade. So that’s where you get a Dyson battery screwdriver from.
