I bought this handy little portable vacuum a few months ago to clean my car. The area on our drive where we park the cars is quite a distance from the house and it is a pain to get the extension lead out and also my current vacuum is also new so I don't really want to use it outside.
I paid £19.99 from this from John Lewis which was the cheapest price I had found and was five pounds cheaper than Argos which is unusual for Argos to be one of the more expensive prices. The vacuum itself is black and red and is very lightweight to hold, and it would be suitable for people with limited strength, but it really is powerful even though it is only 4.8 volts.
It is very simple to empty by just pushing a button on the top and you can clearly see when it needs emptying as the dust bowl is clear. The end where the dirt is sucked up is quite wide so although it can't pick up large items it can certainly pick up larger pieces of dust and I have also sucked up leaves from inside the car which it picks up with no problem, although these do take up a bit of room in the dust bowl. All the filters are removable so that you can wash them if you need to, however I have never done this with this vacuum or my previous ones and I haven't found them to lose any suction, so maybe this only needs to be done after you have used them for a long time.
This handy little vacuum can run for eight minutes on a full charge and I have always found this to be enough to vacuum my car. I also use this quite often in the house if I just need to get a few crumbs up and as it is cordless you can get right into little nooks and cranny's such as underneath the sofa or under the table, and it is much easier and quicker than getting the large vacuum out. I have sometimes used it on the worktop as it is quick and easy to use and you can suck up crumbs easily.
At £19.99 this is a great little vacuum and Black and Decker are a well known and trusted brand so I would expect this to last me for a long time after the standard two year guarantee. It hardly takes up any space in your house or garage which is great if you haven't got much storage space, and it is simple to use and to empty afterwards. I think this little vacuum is great value and is easy to use and store and you can use it anywhere.
