  • Summary: I bought this, hated it, so returned it. I eventually bought the Black and Decker CHV1510 and am very happy with it. My biggest issue with this is the fat nose which make it very hard to get into corners. And as others have posted, the way the suction hole is angled on the nose requires that the vac be held almost upright to effectively created suction on the object being vaccumed. This is a real issue when trying to vac under an object such as a low chair or couch.

I'm usually very forgiving on most everything here, but...

DrRitch, Amazon

  • Summary: Yeah, like others here, the battery, with minimal use within a year, just decided not to charge anymore. The issue I have with this product (and perhaps the company) is the charging connector is built into a base and when charging problems occur, I'm unable to diagnose whether the charger or the vacuum are separate issues or not.

Great for 2 years. 3 year warranty?

BL, Amazon

  • Summary: This is a great little vacuum. It has very good suction. After 25 months of using it for about 5 minutes each day it now will only run for about 30 seconds then dies. That comes to about $2.00 a month or 50 cents a week, not bad. I read in another review that it has a 3 year warranty. I will look into this and update my review after investigating. 8-6-13 update. The vacuum does have a 3 year warranty. I took vacuum to repair location listed on web site.

Died in less than 60 days

Karl Vochatzer, Amazon
22 March 2013
  • Summary: Relatively satisfied with the product while it worked (decent suction and charge), but for the motor to die after less than 60 days with perhaps 10 times used is just unacceptable. Now I must deal with the manufacturer to get some satisfaction out of this purchase. For a per use cost of $5 I would rather have just used a broom and dust pan or a regular vacuum.

Powerful little sucker!

Erin Morrow, Amazon
15 March 2013
  • Summary: I actually did a bit of research on handheld vacs and based on the other reviews decided to buy a Dirt Devil. I haven't had the best luck with upright Dirt Devils in the past so I was slightly skeptical, but this thing is awesome! The suction is amazing! I haven't had to use it for an extended amount of time yet so I'm can't speak to how long the battery lasts, but it is perfect for my needs. I primarily bought it to keep up between thorough cleanings (i.e.

Broke after one month

  • Summary: Lousy quality. The unit stopped being able to charge after only three light uses. Since it broke four and a half weeks after we got it, we cannot return it, either.

Battery and wall mount are below Dirt Devil standards

PhotoGraphics, Amazon
14 January 2013
  • Summary: Think for a minute how many rechargeable devices you own. Now think how many newer devices still use the stone-age nicad battery system. Probably very few. Lithium Ion batteries have taken over most devices you can think of. Because they last longer, have a longer "shelf life" and run full power until they need to be recharged again.

Battery Bad

Bob, Amazon
28 October 2012
  • Summary: Dirt Devil AccuCharge 15.6 Volt Cordless Hand Vac with ENERGY STAR Battery Charger, BD10045RED I should have listen to the other reviewers who identified the battery going bad after a short period of time. Purchased in August and by the end of October the battery would not hold a charge for more then a couple of minutes. Was happy with the product other than the battery.

Died within months

A. Hammel, Amazon
9 September 2012
  • Summary: I bought this at Target, thinking it was a great spot checker to use with my Roomba. Within 3 months, I had approx 10 min of usage with each charge. Now, it won't even suck up bits of potting soil.
