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.
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.
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.
Summary: This product can barely vacuum the interior of my car, and the charge time is so short that I had to stop and recharge about halfway into cleaning my car (and I have a sports car, not some gigantic SUV).
Summary: This little vacuum disappoints in the same way that burning $60 in the middle of your living room floor would. Total garbage. It barely picks anything up. The mounting is worthless and confusing. It's nearly impossible to extract the thing from its charging cradle. If you made the mistake of buying this piece of garbage, smash yours and start over like I did. Can you give -1 stars?
Battery and wall mount are below Dirt Devil standards

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.
Summary: It worked really well for the first 3 months then gradually the battery just won't hold a charge. Today, January 13,2013, the battery is dead. It lasted 1 year and 1 month. Am I the only with this experience. I guess this made only to last this long. Oh well.
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.
Summary: I have had a number of cordless vacs over the years. The last was an expensive "Shark" pet model which I received as a holiday gift. That one lasted just one year before the battery stopped charging. Fortunately before I shopped at a store for a replacement, I saw Amazon.com had this one as the Deal of the Day. The timing was right, so I ordered it. It's by far the best I've ever owned.
