This is the most INCREDIBLE stick vac and hand vac! I really LOVE it! I am used to my Kirby and while I adore it, I was really curious about this item. My opinion is that Electrolux has a wonderful reputation and paired with the potentially extreme convenience I decided to give this a try. I have 2 babies, 2 kitties, hardwood floors throughout with some ceramic tile and a couple of area rugs. This item is fabulous on each and every surface! I use it on all floor surfaces, rugs, furniture, even bedding (ie: kitties go under the bed leaving their fur on the dust ruffles) with great results! It will pick up kitty hair, remodeling dust, new rug shedding, cheerios, and more! I've seen gripes about emptying the 'chamber' and, in my opinion, if you don't want your stick vac to pick up debris - find a cheaper stick vac! This one is absolutely wonderful, worth every penny and then some! Buy It!

I will start by stating that this unit for me is a life saver and it has made a difference in how my house is staying clean!

If you haven't already figured it out, yes I have two Shelties and they SHED a lot! Especially here in Hawaii where the weather is normally humid and warm! I also live in a tri level house and with my arthritic back, you can see that dragging a full size vaccum up and down stairs can really be a back breaker. And dragging a cannister vacuum around isn't much fun either especially up and down the stairs, having to avoid tripping on cords. Last but not least, I have several throw rugs and my upstairs are fully carpeted.

If you own a dog that sheds, you know that rugs and carpets are like velcro to dog hairs! You also know what it's like to vacuum several times a week.... aaargh! And with Shelties,if you don't vacuum at least every three days the floor and especially the rugs and carpets begin look like a hens nest!

Imagine having to vacuum two sets of carpeted stairs and dragging that heavy vacuum or a clumsy ole cannister around? Also, try vacumming a little 3' x 5" throw rug with a full size vacuum and see if it doesn't try to suck the entire thing inside. You wind up having to play 'TUG O WAR' with the vacuum, and if you have (string) fringes around the rug, it winds up badly torn up.

Now if you have EXPENSIVE or ANTIQUE rugs, then you're liable to have someone who gets pretty angry with you for letting the vacuum eat the rug! I guess it's a good way of getting out of having to vacuum the house, if that's your objective! The problem is the spouse won't want to drag that heavy duty full size vacuum around either so you wind up with a hens nest until someone gets tired of looking at it!

You should know before you buy: the battery only allows 10 minutes of vacuuming. This works for about 800 sq ft, maybe 1000. It needs 20 HOURS of charging between uses. No where in the sales description or owner's manual does it say this. I called customer service and they said that's normal.

I thought about returning it because of that, but I do like it. It's lightweight and easy. It does great with pet hair, but it fills up quickly. Basically, it's a dustbuster with a long handle. The dustbuster part comes off to pick up larger things, like coffee beans. The attachments allow for sucking dirt from under the stove, fridge, etc. It is no good on upholstery and probably not great on carpet.

UPDATE: I wish I could up my stars to 4 because even with the short battery life, I love it for the ease of use. It kind of forces me to do my vacuuming quickly with no dilly dallying around. I always know my 1500 sq ft of polished concrete floors will be vac'd in less than 15 min, so it's no big deal for me to vac more often. This beats sweeping any day!

Electrolux EL1012A Stick Hand Vac 2 N 1 Ergorapido Cordless

I bought this from [...] after reviewing this model and a less powerful model. The suction works really well on hardwood floors (dog hair, crumbs etc.) and somewhat well on very low-pile carpet. Designed for floors and that is what I based my decision on. I have used it now for a couple weeks. 15-20 minutes at a time and the suction was still strong (haven't had a need for a longer time frame yet) after each use. The storage/charging base has a small footprint as well as being easy to put the stick/hand vac on and off of it. I have a Dyson DC18 Slim and the hose attachment is totally a bother to use (as well as the floor setting [no brush spinning]. This Electrolux works so much better for the job on the floors that I highly recommend it. Even though I have never tried the latest Shark model, from what I've read, this product is far superior.

I wasn't sure about the Ergorapido because I'd read a few critiques of its Pronto predecessor. No vacuum cleaner is perfect, but this one seemed best to suit our needs. If considering this vacuum, be aware of its limitations and adjust your expectations accordingly. If you're buying this Electrolux cordless as your main, whole house vac, you'll most likely be disappointed. If you're buying it for spot cleaning or bare floor cleaning, you'll probably love it.

Assembly - There's really not much to it especially if you don't mount the charger unit on the wall. The vacuum comes in two pieces attached with one screw and the two charger pieces simply snap together. Even a caveman could do it.

Length of charge - This is why you can't vacuum your entire house, unless you do it piecemeal, vacuum quickly, or have a small house. We've found that the battery maintains power about fifteen or twenty minutes with continuous use depending on whether you're using the high or low power settings. The first charge takes 24 hours, and subsequent full charges are said to take up to 16 hours. Mostly we use the Ergorapido (Latin for therefore fast?) for small tasks and return it to the charger, so it's always charged and ready for use.

Performance - For what it is, the performance of this little vacuum is great. It works better on bare floors, but the pick up on carpet is more than adequate, especially for touch ups, like for scatter rugs by the doors. We really like being able to clean around the parakeets so quickly, easily, and quietly. Just don't expect it to perform like a full size upright.

Ease of Use - This appliance is absolutely remarkable. I've never had a tool that was so easy to place on and remove from its charger.
