Great long lasting vac

I've had this for at least 7 years and it's still going strong. The battery is diminished and the bristles are worm down but it still cleans as well as it did when I first bought it. Show details

Most Preferred little sucker

Compared to my other more Expensive vacuum,my BOSCH is the most comfortable to use and most preferred for reliable for battery life. I will purchase another for each end of the home. Show details

Fantastic vacuum cleaner

Purchased the Bosch cordless vacuum from The Good Guys for $199. It has 3 speeds & transitions well from tiles onto carpet without a change in the dials. The battery life is quite long compared to other makes & brands. The machine is relatively lite in weight & moving it around into tight spaces is easy. It's bagless which is cost effective & has washable filters that can also be replaced after heavy use. Charging from zero to full does take a few hours, this is the only down fall I've found since purchasing it. Show details ·  1

Buyer beware. Don't bother buying

Rubbish, please don't bother buying this product. Doesn't hold charge for very long. Replacement batteries are mire expensive than the unit itself. Bosch are not what they used to be. Will not buy another Bisch product again. Show details

Perfect except for the battery failure

Have a Bosch ZOO'O 25.2V Lithium Power Pro-Animal Brush vacuum cleaner. It has been brilliant but then suddenly the battery is only lasting about 5 minutes on high speed which is the speed needed for the picking up of dog hair. Can the battery be replaced or is this for the dump now? Such a shame to throw it away and all the extras we have to go with it. Show details

Battery lIfe POOR

I have owned this vacuum for three years now. In almost every respect this is a well designed product. Nevertheless, the lithium batteries have started to die. I was quite happy to replace them but found out that this is next to impossible which means an otherwise perfect appliance needs to go to landfill!!
I amoungst many others detest this needless waste. BOSCH makes quality products, so I am disappointed that they don't stand behind the products they sell. I tried to ring them but found their Australian number had benn disconnected?? I think this shows contempt for their customers, so I will never purchase a Bosch product again.

Don’t buy this junk

I’ve had 2 Bosch Athlet Stick vacuums and both batteries have failed to charge just out of warranty and the batteries are not user replaceable, I would never recommend this product, in fact I am dubious about recommending any Bosch product after continuous problems with other Bosch appliances, Bosch was a reliable product many years ago however these days the quality has taken a dive and now it’s temporary trash like most other brands.

Battery lasted only 4 years !

The battery will last only one minute of vacuuming after charging - for a vacuum that is only 4 years old. There is no way the user can change over the battery - it's fully sealed in. Show details

1.5 year old appliance, battery massively declined

Same issue as everyone else on this thread. Vacuum cannot be run in turbo mode without the machine switching off after a couple of minutes. It runs on the lower settings which no longer provide enough suction to clean carpet properly. Should have stayed with Dyson! At nearly $400 this was a bad buy and clearly a dud product. Show details

Don't buy one

We have owned this for less than two years. The suction is MAGIC and I was so impressed with it I raved when I first bought it. Now... Battery dies even on the lower settings within minutes. I'm extremely upset with this product and I've read the battery is irreplaceable unless you spend hundreds of $$ on it. NOT WORTH THE SPEND don't go there I wish I hadn't Show details

My Bosch Zoo Vacuum Cleaner is not holding a charge and the manual tells me that the battery can only be replaced by a qualified Bosch service agent. I am in the Lake Macquarie area, NSW. Where is my nearest service agent? Greg at [Email Address Removed]

I really like the vacuum but am very disappointed that the part where the hand joins it has cracked in the plastic. So I'm not able to use it. It's the first time I have spent so much on a vacuum.

Hi Mel. My one is similar as the charge is holding less and less as time goes by and mine is less than 2 yrs old. After reading other reviews it seems this is a Common problem with these models ):
