Summary: I've owned this vac for about 3 1/2 months now and it still has moderately good suction, although it's not as strong as when I first bought it. The major problem is after fully charging it (overnight) or just charging for 2-3 hours - either way - the vac will not hold a charge longer than one and a half minutes! Useless!!! if you want to vac out your car.
Summary: I do not own one of these neat little vacuums yet but my daughter does and I have used it many times when visiting with her. She has 2 small children and there is a need to clean up after they have had a meal or a snack and I really like this vacuum. She also has a dog and this vacuum picks up the dog hair like no other. It is so easy to use on stairs and just doing light cleaning in between regular cleaning.
Summary: This little guy lasts 12-15 minutes on a full charge - not bad for a NiCad battery. Lithium batteries last 20 minutes or so. It's a cordless hand vac for heavens sake. Your not supposed to vacuum your whole house with it! I keep it where I can grab it and charge it whenever I need to. The best feature of this hand vac is the hose. It allows me to clean around and behind things (i.e. electronics, bookshelves).
Summary: I'm so happy I bought this! I had another one picked out, but my husband bought this before I could tell him what I wanted. He made the BEST CHOICE!> It is SO POWERFUL! and all the attachments are AWESOME!. The filtration system is excellent! The 4 foot hose is great! I have 2 dogs and 3 cats and 2 kids. This is the BEST! So glad I got it! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED! I can't think of any Cons at all!
