Batteries are useless

published

The Bissell Bolt Cordless Vacuum performed very well when new, but the battery became less and less effective and died after about a year or so. We had an extended 4 year warranty and the battery was replaced twice in that time. The last time was 18 months ago when we were told we had no more warranty. The vacuum now only lasts 3-4 minutes between each charge and so is useless. I wouldn't recommend it.

Purchased in November 2015 at Harvey Norman for A$309.00.

Waste of money

published

Lithium battery run time was approx 15 min. Battery died one month out of warranty. The filters are washable but not replaceable - they need to be replaced after multiple washes. Good looking product but doesn’t deliver.

Purchased in April 2018 at The Good Guys for A$399.00.

Battery Fails and Can't Be Replaced

published

This was a great little unit and worked well until the battery died. As it can't be replaced, this means the entire hand held component needs to be replaced, which is cost prohibitive and renders the entire unit unusable. This is a terrible design flaw. Such a horrible waste.

Light and easy vacuuming

published

The Bolt Bissell stick cordless vacuum cleaner makes vacuuming so easy. The cleaner us light, easy to maneuver and has a strong suction. It's simple to empty the bagless dirt container and it's got a fairly fast rechargeable battery. It doesn't gat 5 stars as the detachable long reach hose is a little awkward. However for a cheaper end of the market model, this is a little beauty making vacuuming less of a chore

also second replacement in 2 years

published

Like reviewer Micky B, my 1311F was replaced with newer model 1971F as battery died after 12 months. At the time they advised there was a battery problem but it had been fixed in the new model.....yet just over 12 months later and same problem again. They are replacing it again but only after trying to blame me for leaving it on the charging stand ?? Isn't that what they are for! Such a shame as its a great little vacuum otherwise. Hope i'm not ringing them again this time next year!

Good little battery vac

published

The Bissell Bolt Lithium Max 25V Vacuum is a great little vac, we use it all the time to vac our vinyl plank floor in our holiday studio, picks up hair and dust with ease we hardly ever get the big vac out anymore, the charge lasts about 30 continues minutes, It detaches easily so you can use it as a hand vac for doing the interior of the car. Happy so far.

Date PurchasedOct 2017
