Vacuum Cleaners Buying Guide
Our buying guide will explain which type of vacuum cleaner would suit you most, how much you can expect to pay for one, and which features are worth looking out for.
My go to vac
I find i am using my main vac less and less. This small 18 Volt vac is not as powerful as my main cleaner, but the convienience of this little vac with excellent suction for a battery powered device has become my vac of choice. I can highly recommend this to anyone, you will be surprised how often you use it.
Convienience, adequate suction in comparison to main vac,
Needs extension hose and small foot
Love this little hand held cleaner. Wanted one to vacuum my car as living on the first floor I can't use my normal vacuum cleaner so bought this. Didn't want to spend $200 on this but absolutely worth it. Powerful and handy. Can clean the drivers side, front passenger seat and one of the back passenger sides including floor and ceiling on one battery run.
small, handy, powerfull
battery doesn't last a full sedan car clean
Best Handheld Vac Ever
I have had plenty of handhelds in the past and one that I was particularly attached to was the Hoover Hotshot. It lasted me four years and was the only hosed model I have owned. In the few years since I have searched for something similar and finally I found a unit that is quite simply the best handheld ever. The suction is incredibly strong, battery life runs at around 25 minutes full usage and the charge is reasonably fast. The small and compact unit sits comfortably in one hand while the other can access hard to reach spots by virtue of ...the stretchable hose. The on/off button is so well located that you only need to lift one finger from the handle to operate. The capacity of the bin seems to go on forever and the ease of clean is first rate. The rubberised pet hair tool is by far the best hair remover I have ever come across, close to total removal with a couple of swipes. I have to reiterate, the suction on this little beauty is just incredible. Massive suction lasting right through to battery fail. Light, compact and convenient. Excellent pet hair attachment. Long battery life and fast charge time. Dust bin fills with no affect on suction. Slightly noisy. The brush attachment could be sturdier, it swings down from the unit and only brushes in front of the leading edge, very flimsy. This unit is still going strong in April 2019.
Great Suction, Very Robust Unit
I got tired of the vacuums at Car Washes not being able to get into crevices in my car, and standard vacuum cleaners not being versatile for small corners in the house.
This is the 18 volt version not the weaker 12V seen elsewhere. It has a handle attached to the dust chamber (which holds quite a bit) and a long 1.5m flexible hose that wraps around it for storage. Crevice tool is great as well.. You can get into very tight, inaccessible spots and the suction is amazing.
Good points (stolen from Choice Magazine)
• Very good for dirt pick ...
I was concerned that buying something so small would not be effective but I was pleasantly surprised. I have a toddler and a dog so little messes are frequent. As the vacuum cleaner is kept downstairs this little unit has been wonderfully convenient. Easy to empty. Fits beautifully under our sink cupboard.
The hose packs away neatly around the unit.. Compact.. Dust doesnt fall back out..Flexibe hose for tight spots.
a little noisy
