Priced on Amazon at just a £25.99 this lightweight but powerful rechargeable car vacuum cleaner has to be one of the best I have tried in the sub £100 price bracket.
In the attractive but deceptively small product box was Vacuum cleaner itself with hard-wired 5M cable and car cigar lighter plug, long extension hose, extension nozzle, brush head, two HEPA filters (one fitted), storage bag, UK Power Supply, a medium-sized brush and pan and a short but well-written User Guide. Although the device feels lighter than others I have tried and is smaller at 350mm x 110 x 110mm with a weight of 653g and bin capacity of 500ml, nevertheless, the build quality seems fine with nothing looking likely to fail anytime soon. The kit includes a zippable carry bag with handle and although it is a squeeze all the items will fi inside including the spare filter but not the dustpan and brush, which seems to have been added as a bonus..
When it came to testing the cleaner I was not expecting too much as previous handheld vacuums I have used have not performed well. In fact, cleaning power was excellent and exceeded my expectations by quite some mark. I found the device more than capable of handling minor spills and spillages in the car as well as for general cleaning. It can generate a suction power of up to 4500pa (whatever that is). Don’t throw your Dyson away yet, this little cleaner is not in that league, but for the size and money, it does an excellent job. Quiet in operation it can cope with wet and dry spills and it comes with two filters which are washable and each good for around 500 operating cycles. I was impressed by the extra cleaning heads included and using them did not seem to reduce the suction power in any way, again, unlike with previous rivals. A bonus is the switchable front-facing LED lamp which is handy when cleaning in corners or under worksurfaces.
When using the cleaner. remember to always use it with the engine running to avoid running the car battery down as this vacuum cleaner is a powerful device. Remember that the cleaner should be used for no more than 15 minutes continuously to avoid overheating, but I doubt many people would need to use it that long. For maximum cleaning power, it is best to empty the bin and clean the filter after each major cleaning session.
This is a decent quality device, lightweight and compact sized, it is powerful enough to deal with minor spills and upsets as well as general car cleaning and at a price that will not break the bank.
