Excerpt: I have previously had dirt devil cordless hand vacuums and had absolutly no problem out of them, I had my last ones for about a year and a half before it finally broke down and quite holding a charge.
Summary: I am very disappointed with this product. The charger seems to be defective, or else the battery is bad. I got so irritated with it that I am using my old one, which is only slightly better since it will not hold a charge very long. I wasted my money on this item.
