Replacement battery costs more than the vac

I'm sooo angry, my dad passed away and I have inherited his bosch athlete vac so it has sentimental value, it only vacs for around 3 minutes so I rang Bosch to enquire about a replacement, well, it's built in so that will cost you between $400 and $500 dollars the eude lady said..how can they justify this..bet they don't tell customers when they are buying this vac that the battery will cost more than the vac...disgusting. 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

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

trash, battery dies within a few mins - worthless

had for nearly 2 years, started off with a battery life of about 15 to 20 mins on high used on floorboards and occasionally carpet. now barely lasts 2 minutes after a full overnight charge. have cleaned and maintained it, the battery is just trash.
for the price i paid 2 years ago, its pretty disappointing! dont waste your money! Show details

Love my Bosch

This is my 2nd Bosch Vacuum cleaner. I love how its solid & not flimsy. Have had this particular one for 2 years, my only frustration is the battery is now only lasting 7minutes when fully charged! Show details

Waste of money

I've had the same issue with battery life. If on the highest setting it only holds charge for about 1min then dies. Even though the battery indicator would have 3/4 full it dies after 1min. Started out being great... best suction in a stick vac I've had but the battery issue has turned me right off Bosch now unfortunately. Mostly used on tiles and very low profile indoor/outdoor carpet Show details

No battery charge

Purchase this appliance 6months ago and at a the price I would not have expected it to be so short lived. The vacuum charge is around 5mins. Hardly time to vacuum a room. I have wood floors. Otherwise this previously was a good, well functioning product - now it is simply useless. Would not purchase another. And had I known that so many others were having this same issue I would not have purchased this one Show details
