Is the battery interchangeable.

Hi there. I've had two of these and you couldn't replace the battery....which of course expired just out of warranty!! If you can afford it, by a Dyson V8 animal. You can replace the battery in this...and it is superior in every way. I bought one three weeks ago....and love it. Gail

Hi there again. I haven't checked the latest version of this to see if the battery can be replaced. Ask the supplier. Gail

Hello, sorry but don’t think the battery is interchangeable due to where the prongs are. You may contact supplier where a replacement can be purchased.

Lithium Pivot Dustbuster 14.4 V (PV1420L)

I have just ordered the 1420L from Takealot on Black Friday and now reading all the bad reviews. Do you recommend me returning it right away?

We have had ours for a while with no issues. It does what it is designed for - quick cleaning etc. hubby uses to clean the suv with no issues, me general cleanups. It works well, no issues. Worst scenario, you are within your warranty rights if you have issues. Hope this helped.

This is a good little unit, however the real problem with it is the battery doesnt last. Weve had two now...,battery only lasted about eighteen months....and thats only using it two or three times a week.

Lithium Pivot Dustbuster 18 V (PV1820L)

I have this vac and find it good. No problem, yet, with battery. Had it about a year. However, each time I place it on its base, dust, dirt, whatever ive just vacuumed up, falls out of the end/nozzle. I then have to clean that up. And same thing will happen. Looks like the little flexible seal isnt sealing as it should.
Anyone else has this problem?
Might take it back.
Thanks

It probably has a loose or detached seal, which looks like a small black flap. Just empty and shake out the dust/dirt container into a bin after each use and before putting it back on its base. I would keep it because it is handy to use and keep in the car, although even with a fully charged battery it gives less than 20 minutes use.

Thanks Acton. I thought it was the seal, i think it gets blocked open, depending on whats in it. Very fiddly to open, close and empty and take apart. So, i might just see if they'll refund. But it has good suction.

The runtime is about 10-15mins matching with product description. But I don’t monitor the recharge time yet as it won’t bother me.

If you press down at the front near the lines when pushing it back in it should close? Maybe your one is jammed? Just try that see what happens

Thank you - yes this worked, I was just afraid to exert too much pressure.

I'm not sure although I did look it up & watch a video https://youtu.be/1N7R9nROjuA
where a guy opens up the battery case & there's 4 large batteries that don't seem like they would be easy to find but there was 2 links in the comments that might help & they mentioned the 4 large red batteries seem to be 18650 cells.
Here are the links

No idea but I expect it to go for at least 2 years without touching it
I am still extremely happy with my unit

Remove the two screws holding the chrome cover then lift that end slightly and give it a tap toward the charging end.
