Easy to use and clean


Moderate suction strength only- picks up stuff from hard surfaces well. Not much good for the car carpets or stairs - too feeble.

Does what it says on the box


Read all the reviews for cordless handheld vacuum cleaners and for my first purchase plumped for a best value for my money model. It picks up really well, is easy to empty and is great for small spillages and quick tidying up.

Does a good job


It works very efficiently and is easy to use. Much better than our last hand held.

Pleasant surprise!


I was very brand loyal to Black & Decker, who have now priced themselves out of the market, so was a bit sceptical about this product. It is a lower voltage than my previous one but feels just as powerful. Really efficient and nice to hold. My only...

A Very good product


this product is light in weight and very useful. It needs trickle charging but that is not a problem at all. Sucks up the dirt and bits and is ideal for the car and the furniture!

Not great but does the job eventually


It doesn't really do the job quickly, I had to keep going over the same spot on my car mat a few times to get all the dust off. I personally don't think it's worth the amount I've paid for as i could have bought a cheaper one which would have done the...
