Called Stanley Black and Decker and explained. She said this unit has NI-CAD batteries , not lithium. Didn't realize this, would have ordered lithium unit in the first place.
Stanley black and decker sent me the 20v lithium version ( lithium stamped on body of unit) with floor head accessories. They went beyond my expectations for warranty coverage. Sent me much nicer unit, upgrade from the one I bought. Very happy with the results of my purchase.
The battery life is excellent (because we followed the instructions to fully charge and discharge it 5 times to prevent "battery memory" when we got it). All cordless products in this category are intended for quick to moderate clean-ups. The cordless appliances are more convenient to use but none will have much more than perhaps five minutes of full power before the battery begins to lose power so consider if you really need one with a cord.
After 7 months of use once or twice a week, the batteries stopped charging. Black & Decker doesn't sell replacement batteries and having a replacement set made by a wholesaler costs more than the original unit. I just noticed that the unit is on sale for $35 on Amazon, so I ordered another. Now that I know what to expect, I believe the ease and convenience are worth the low price even if the life span is short.
I hope this helps other manage their expectations.
We purchased this because we have three dogs and hardwood floors. Some times the floors aren't hairy enough to pull everything aside and do a thorough sweeping, so having this battery powered vacuum at the constant ready is a dream come true. It is powerful enough to pull hair and dust out of the corners and being battery powered, we don't have to spend time winding and unwinding cords. I don't know how long the battery will continue to hold a charge, but we have had it about three months and so far so good.
You have to empty it when it gets full -- just open a little round door on the side and dump the contents. Then you should wash the filter that's inside.
Charging it takes a while if you wait until it runs down. I usually leave it overnight. It lasts a long time on the charge for me -- generally a few weeks --- but I only use it once or twice a week.
Overall, it's been an excellent small vacuum, and I highly recommend it.
I love my car to the point of spending hours a month keeping her clean. However, I have a service dog that goes everywhere with me and leaves half of herself behind each car ride. I got to the point where I said 'Screw it!' and just decided to ignore the inside of my car. However, it got to a point where I'd put on my nice black blazer and it would look like I just came in from the snow. I decided enough was enough and sought out a small compact vacuum that would be able to assist in my problem.
After looking at other reviews, I decided upon this one due to it's smaller nozzle head and its ability to get into small spaces. I received the vacuum and immediately put it on the charger. A full charge literally takes 22 hours, which is quite a long time for the output. After a day and a half, I brought the vacuum down to my car to test it out. I love it's small surface area, which allows me to maneuver myself though my small car. I have to say, this easily took all the dog hair from my seats. However, I did have to spend a lot of time with the fabric in the floor boards, which a lot still remained after the battery died (lasted about 8 minutes with off/on toggling). The fabric is very fickle though and this vacuum actually did better than any of the other ones i've used.
Now, this is suppose to be an easy empty canister, however I saw that a lot of the dog hair was stuck to the plastic inside and I had to use a combination of my fingers and a paper towel to try and get it out. At one point I said 'Screw it' and just left it as is. I've started also using this vacuum around the house and this is it's redeeming factor. The suction is so great! I'm using it in the corners that my Neato seems to miss as well as cleaning up dog beds, cleaning counters etc...For that, it's amazing!
Anyways, this has been my experience with it. If it had more battery life or could be use corded as it's charging, it would be a perfect 10/10 for me.
