Product Description

Don't let a power cord put limits on your cleaning. The Eureka Boss Lite cordless vacuum supplies plenty of suction and versatility without a cumbersome, leashlike cord. Designed for quick pickup on bare floors or carpets, this bagless vacuum features a convenient dust cup for dirt collection--when it's full, just quick-release it, and dump it out. At less than five pounds, the Boss Lite is easy to lift, push, and store, and comes with its own wall-mount rack, conveniently connected to the charging plug. Fully extended, the handle makes for comfortable floor vacuuming, but you can also remove it to vacuum tight areas like closets or tidy up the stairs. A motor-driven brush roll sweeps and combs the carpet, sending particles into the path of the suction. Requiring just a few minutes to assemble, the vacuum features a powerful five-cell battery pack that's easy to remove and replace and a charge light that lets you know when the vacuum's fully juiced. Eureka also includes a bare floors/carpet switch, a built-in Edge Kleener for vacuuming near walls and furniture, and a motor filter inside the dust cup. --Emily Bedard

Batteries still hold a charge.

It's light, quick, easy to use, and I don't have to lug out my regular vacuum cleaner every time I want a quick sweep.

Worked well on my tile floors as well as my rugs.

Before I tell you how to increase the suction and pickup of this little gem I'll tell you I believe in taking advantage of return policies of Target, Walmart, Sears, etc. I have tried almost every cordless stick vac readily available even making side by side comparisons and the Eureka 96D is the best! Suction is only half the equation! The Black And Decker (most powerful stick vac) is sturdier and has about 50-70% more suction but it loses it because of bad head design on the floor. The Eureka (best head design of all) picks up all the cat sand even from the grooves in my wood floor! The most powerful sick vac (Black And Decker) couldn't do it! Great for hard floor and throw rugs! Remember, not a replacement for regular vac (unless you have all hard floor) but the best for light to medium work and in-between major vacuuming. Handle could be sturdier so don't "man-handle" it. Two batteries is best (15-25 minutes per charge). NOW, take the filter case off the vac and you'll see the hole where the suction fan is with the plastic grid in front (obstruction for safety). CUT THE PLASTIC GRID OUT thereby removing safety obstruction! Screw the safety! You just incresed fan speed and suction by 20-30%!!! I have 2 of these vacs and I compared the difference and was blown away! Literally! Now the cat sand is sucked in from the front and sides! You can feel AND SEE the difference!

We bought this when our first child learned to crawl and we had to clean crumbs, etc off the floor before she ate them. Now we're again finding it indispensable for number two and three (now ages 1, 3, and 5)

I like it for:

1) Handle installs and removes quickly and easily.
2) vacuum hangs easy on the charger - some other ones we've had are tricky to pop into the charger correctly if you want it to be installed vertically.
3) Power roller bar - really sucks up those cheerios quickly, even on hard floors.
4) Easily removable battery - charger has a second battery charging slot so you can swap out.

When I bought this the cashier at Target told me that this was what they used to clean up spills in the store. It's now almost 3 years old and the battery is starting to show it's age (It's easily removable so I'll be buying a spare soon)

UPDATE: The original battery is still going strong. To eliminate the "Memory" I just ran down the battery between charges rather than keeping it on the charger "topping off" all the time. Works great now, as good as new!

UPDATE2 - after 5-1/2 years the original battery is finally dead. OEM replacement part cost me $19.99 including shipping, good as new!!!!

TIP: When emptying I find it handy to use a full size vacuum cleaner to get the filter extra clean.

We have had our original Boss vacuum over 3 years and found it to be a really great addition to using a regular vacuum. It doesn't pick up like a standard vacuum but because it is so easy to use, the house gets vacuumed more often (and therefor stays cleaner). I can do almost the entire main living area of our house on a single charge and bought an additional battery pack when a single battery isn't enough. Ours get used 3 to 7 times a week and we have 2 dogs, 2 cats, and 3 boys to clean up after.

After 3 years here's the "good and not so good":

Good:

-- Lighweight, manuverable, and mechanically reliable

-- Battery life is acceptable and replacement batteries are relatively cheap

-- Dirt container is easy to empty and clean

Could be better:

-- Battery connection to unit is cheap and corrodes after time (we found that what we thought was weak batteries was just poor connection -- it's easy to clean but not the best design)

-- Dog and cat hair poses an issue with the rollers on the bottom of the unit - it clogs the rollers and is difficult to clean out without dismantling the vacuum brush head

-- The roller design is cheap and is the only mechanical item on the unit to fail -- the shafts supporting the rollers broke their mounts and came off

As mentioned above -- we use this unit ALOT and I figure for over 3 years of use the $29 purchase price is well worth it so I came back to purchase another one.

Verified Purchase
Ok. Bought this, for my 1 bedroom apt. Thought not much 'bout it. Here's what my observations are:

a) Quiet - not at all loud.

b) Picks up everything, literally everything. I esp. spilled some paper/sugar - picked it up in 3 to 4 Go's. Well, I know there are others which pick it up in 1 go. Agreed but let's look at the reasoning. Those who pick up in 1 go: COSTLY or NOISY. Period. I know Shark does a good job, but did you folks HEAR it?

c) i use this vacuum EVERYDAY. Why? Because it's battery suffices me for my 900 sq. ft. flat COMPLETELY and use the carpet-mode and because it's SO LIGHT.

d) i have been using for 2+ yrs. now, no issues.

e) BEST PART -> The vacuum gets cleaned COMPLETELY. the entire filter comes off, can be soap-washed and is AS GOOD as NEW.
