Love it


I would buy this. Compact and easy to use. Little loud but better then dragging a cord.

Small, but big in performance.


(Fantastic) is my comment for this product. Only had it a short time—Christmas gift to myself, but used it several times already. My best place to use is cleaning up in my cars. Before I had to take out the 5 gallon vacuum with big hoses to do a small...

Great Product


Great product for getting into areas not accessible with a floor vacuum that you have to plug in. Home Depot had a great price on it and sent it securely and quickly. Couldn't have asked for more.

great tool


This little guy has a lot of power for its compact size. The battery charge lasts a long time and charges quickly. It performs much more efficiently than other models I have used in my work. I have recommended it to my friends and co-workers.

Great handy little clean up cav


Does well for all the small jobs I have tried in the garage (saw dust, lint behind the dryer, drywall messes) and my wife adopted it for cleaning up her car after our 4 year old make a mess with his snacks. Portable and easy to use. Great suction for...

Convenient when an outlet is not


I used this product continuously for an hour at a time, waited for the battery to recharge (about another hour and a half) then kept going in that cycle until the job was done. It did the job. One of the issues I had was that it was an 18V battery. I...
