A great, useful little tool. But make sure you empty it at the 'max' line.

Karcher WV50 Window Vac
Advantages: Quick window cleaning, cleans windows very well
Disadvantages: battery life, doesn't have a big water tank
I bought this product from Argos for a steep £49.99 after seeing a television advert about it. I bought it because my house has single glazed windows which mean we get a lot of condensation in the winter (if we don't remove the water it will cause mold).
I don't recommend this product for clearing windows of condensation - although it us very effective at getting all the water off windows, the condensation will just come back very quickly (within about 10 minutes of cleaning) so do not make the same mistake as me by buying this product for condensation, get a dehumidifier instead.
For cleaning windows this product is nothing short of flawless! I have been cleaning my windows with a cloth and bucket for years and I would never go back. It just glides over your windows cleaning them effortlessly and with with speed. It is also cordless so no annoying leads.
You can get a special cleaning product for this but I don't recommend using it as it is expensive and not that effective. Honestly, you are better off just mixing a bit of washing up liquid with water and it won't harm the machine or anything.
There are a couple of ways I can flaw this product, first of all with the battery life - it takes hours to charge and I only get about half an hour of cleaning time before you need to charge it again (and you can't just give it a quick charge or it will go weak).
You also have to keep your eye on it because if you go past the 'max' line it will start spraying water onto your face through the vacuum and this can be very painful, especially if you've been using a cleaning product and it gets in your eyes! It also fills up very quickly.
Overall a great product, especially for cleaning windows quickly and efficiently, just be wary with the flaws I've stated.
Summary: A must buy for cleaning windows.
