I've only had this vacuum a short time and that is why I didn't give it 5 stars. So far I have used it to clean stairs, tile, car seats and furniture and it has done the job every time. The dirt cup is very easy to empty and replace. It seems to hold a charge well and the connivence of a cordless is a must with our family. I really hope this lasts - I seem to use it several times a week.
This little handheld vacuum is more powerful than I thought it would be. It has just the right amount of power for a small cordless handheld. The only downside is that the charge doesn't really last for more than one or two uses. It requires frequent recharging. It is a great item for the low cost!
I bought Dirt Devil because I have a old (really old) corded one with the hose and cloth bag. I have loved it and still works great for household chores, crevices and stairs. I needed a handier, small vac for the kitchen as crumbs on the table drive me nuts. This little Gator cordless is a champ and soooo handy around table and counters and vacuuming kitchen cabinets and drawers. It is everything I wanted. Strong suction, Charges fast and lasts for days.
I've owned this product for 1 year, and I'm very glad I purchased the replacement insurance on it. It always used up the charge too quickly- could barely finish vacuuming my carpeted stairs (and that's what I bought it for). After about 9 months, the battery quit recharging. I tried different plugs, saw the red light that indicated it was charging, then it would barely turn on. I looked up other reviews, and apparently this is a very common problem with this product. They want to sell you a new battery for $XX or something. No thanks.
I would not recommend this item. Dissappointing.
We purchased this unit only a few months ago. Within a couple months, it started not holding a charge for more than a minute. Now it is down to only about 10 seconds. Seriously. I turn it on and try to vacuum up some crumbs and it winds down to a purr in a matter of seconds. Hopefully this is just a dud.
Exactly what I needed for around the wood fireplace and litterbox for cats.
Good suction, holds charge, light enough for my 5 year old to use.
I don't love how it dumps out, but it's tolerable for the other basic features.
