Small yet Powerful, Useful for College
As a college student, I needed a small, compact vacuum to keep my dorm clean. I’ve had this for a couple weeks, but so far no problems. It is surprisingly powerful. I’ve seen other products labeled specifically to clean pet hairs, and I was afraid the vacuum would not be as powerful as I would like. So when I received the vacuum, I tried it out on my bed and it picked up a good amount of dust and hair. The extensions are very useful for increasing the suction area to decrease the suction force.For example, I wanted to use this on my bed sheets to pick up stray hairs, but using it by itself is too powerful. It will suck up the sheets. However, if you use the extension dusting brush the suction area is increased and not in direct contact with the bed sheets, so I can easily use this to quickly clean my sheets.The filter is also easy to clean out. If you don’t want to get your hands dirty, I recommend wearing gloves.The negative about this product is that it can be tiring to hold the vacuum for a long time. But, it’s the sacrifice for being clean. It’d be the same for other devices, and I would imagine that lighter vacuums might be less powerful.PROS:-Small -Powerful -Useful extensionsCONS:-A little heavy, can get tiring after holding for a while
Great for guinea pig cages
I use this to clean out the fleece bedding in my guinea pig’s cage. Works perfectly. I suggest getting some extra filters because it can get gross pretty fast.
I Love It!
I’m really happy with this purchase. It does exactly what I need it to, and even comes with all the extra little parts to do things I didn’t expect it could. I will say, it’s incredibly loud for such a small device, but it is a vaccume after all. But yes, for my small bedroom it’s absolutely perfect. No more mess!(added a picture with one of the nifty add-ons to reach the tiny little spaces)
I normally don’t take the time to write amazon reviews, but I was blown away by how powerful this little vacuum is. It picks everything up no matter what size and very quickly! Makes vacuuming so easy for me in my dorm room
I purchased this solely based on good reviews and i guess the reviews below are for …
I dont understand how this item got such reviews. I purchased this solely based on good reviews and i guess the reviews below are for sure paid reviews. The main problem with this item- It front end of the vacuum is very loose and many time fell on my feet when trying to remove some dust on floor. So please be careful while using this item. A few weeks ago i was not surprised when i saw this item on recall at the local walmart supercenter.
Best handheld vac by far
This is, by far, the best handheld vac I have ever purchased and used. For the past 15 years, I have been purchasing cordless handheld vacs and every year or two I have to purchase a new one because the battery doesn’t hold but a 30 second charge. I was tired of spending $30 – $200 every year or two for a new vacuum that I knew would only last a year or so. I was also very disappointed in every cordless vacuums’ suction power (I have had everything from the Black & Decker CHV9610 Dustbuster 9.6-Volt Cordless Hand Vac to the Dyson DC31 Handheld Vacuum Cleaner) I finally decided to try a corded handheld vacuum and I can’t believe I waited this long!!!I will start by saying that my primary use for this vacuum is for small to medium tasks. I live in an apartment so I don’t have a ton of square footage to cover. I use an upright Dirt Devil vacuum for the wooden floors. I use the handheld vacuum for the corners on the floor, under the couch and couch covers, any closet spaces, computer areas, small rugs, bathrooms, ceiling fans and even our outdoor patio. I use the Dirt Devil SD20005RED Scorpion Quick Flip 7 AMP Hand Vac – RED about twice a week and for about 15 – 20 minutes at a time (not continuous running).Pros: Suction – this vacuum has the strongest continuous suction of any other handheld I have tried. Keep in mind I use the word “continuous”. This is because there is no loss of suction while plugged in. Cordless vacuums suffer from both initial suction power and then loss of suction the more you use it before charging again. This is exactly like a flashlight. When you first put in the batteries, the flashlight is rich and bright but hours later it will be dull and dim. The does not lose any suction over time and is very strong!! Versatility – the scorpion quick flip feature on this vacuum is just great. You can quickly and effortlessly flip out this tool (attached to the top front of the vacuum) and the vacuum is now able to reach very tight spots. This feature is great because you do not need to keep track of a detachable piece. There is also a hose attachment with a broad head attachment to that. These are separate but very useful as well. Finally, there is an included strap that you can attach to sling the vacuum over your shoulder. I have yet to use the strap as this vacuum is very light and I don’t find it necessary. Weight – I personally find the weight a non-issue and, quite frankly, very light for what it is. I did not feel any fatigue using the vacuum for extended periods of time. The Cord – The cord is very long and I was able to reach anywhere comfortably.Cons: The only con I can see (for some people) for now is that the compartment that holds/traps the dust and debris is very small and you will need to clean it several times while using it. This was hardly an inconvenience for me as I like to clean the filter many times to avoid any particles escaping back into the air (I am severely allergic to dust). The filter, as well, seems like you will need to replace it eventually. This, again, is not an inconvenience for me as the filters are very cheap and there are many customers who say you can simply wash these filters to obtain years of reuse.Other thoughts: Many reviews mentioned the over heating of the vacuum. This is slightly true. If you were to let the vacuum run continuous for 15 minutes it will get hot. This, however, is NOT the intended use of the vacuum. If it begins to get a little warm for your touch, simply turn it off and wait 30 seconds. I have not found this to be an issue at all and have had it running for nearly ten minutes without any issue. Purchasers of this item should have common sense to know that this is NOT a standard vacuum. This is a handheld vacuum and should be used as such.For the price vs what you get, I would STRONGLY recommend the
