Use this vacuum on my car interior where electric outlets are not available. It has plenty of suction to pick up almost everything quickly. It does take a little extra time to get to some tight spots but the extension tool works fairly well when a little reach is needed. The brush helps loosen up hairs and other stubborn junk tracked onto my floor mats. After the initial charge I figured out the battery life was good for about 20 minutes and I had to recharge the battery to finish vacuuming a neglected car interior. But now using it more frequently for maintenance only helps to avoid running out of power before the job is finished.
