Hmm... may be that one isn't that dump.
In the german mikrocontroller.net forum it was discussed sometimes ago that
manufacturers of vacuum cleaners really put Heater resistors into theyr
products to rise the pulled power..

Don't get me wron, but I can't see any need for consumer vacuum cleanersi
above 1600 Watts..what would you do? Suck in the entire carpet and shredder

I do have a industrial type vacuum cleaner with 3 phase power rated 1,5KW
and a zyklon type "filter" in my warehouse..be sure, that thing really
sucks :-))

No. That's hearsay and forbidden everywhere.
