Don't bother buying

Summary: I bought this brand new and having used it a little bit, I realized I should have extra batteries charged for use. This vacuum is absolutely useless. It doesn't last a minute and half. Its very disappointing. It vacuums okay during that minute but I can seem to finish the little jobs with it.
Summary: This is a great and powerful vacuum. It uses the LiFePO4 battery technology for a power source. One major downfall, the 2 switches inside that are used to power up this great contender are prone to wear out prematurely.
Summary: The batteries are not included with the 2VPX set. That means another $50 on top of the vacuum price. I've read that these lithium-ion batteries do not last more than 5 minutes in operation and have a short service life. This is why this whole product line is being discontinued.
Powerfull, but be aware that the batteries are not included

Summary: I ordered this handheld vac a few weeks ago and was surprised that it came without the batteries. I should have read the content better. Anyway, once I got the batteries and the charger I was really impressed how good it works. The built-in extension let you reach in corners and between gaps etc.
Summary: I love the VPX tool system (I have them all)! This is the best of the bunch. I got it for $12.99 on sale at Menards. It's terrific! Very powerful suction for a cordless hand vac, easy to use and the onboard extra tools are very useful. The attached crevice tool is also very convenient.
