Let's just clear something up before I review this. This is a car hoover. The description might be slightly misleading, as it does make reference to delicate areas like curtains and lampshades, but every other detail on here clearly shows it is for cars only (including the title).

Now that's out of the way, my review is based on using this to vacuum my car using the cigarette lighter power source to do so. First tip is to use this with the engine on, it does increase suction by doing so but more importantly, you won't flatten your battery by having this and the interior lights on draining it. This really is a great car hoover, plenty of suction and easy to store away due to the size. I'd say I had an average amount of dirt in my car (stones and a bit of mud), which disappeared in next to no time using the long nozzle attachment. I find this device works better than the brush for really getting into the dirt that's built up in car mats and near accelerator pedals. It's also thin enough to fit beneath driver/passenger seats and sills, as well as other hard to reach areas.

The brush attachment is very useful for the dashboard and I found it less harsh on leather/alcantara than the nozzle attachment. The power lead wraps around the vacuum itself, as does the hose which also extends to a size that is perfectly fine for car vacuuming. A handy storage bag is included, which zips up and fits the tools in. If you have heavily soiled carpets/seats/mats, this vacuum won't remove that but no vacuum would I'm afraid - your carpets/seats/mats need professionally cleaning and you can then maintain that look with this device. Overall, possibly the best £40 I've spent on Amazon and wouldn't hesitate to recommend this.

Like others who have left feedback for this item I spent some time doing my homework. First of all let me say that the reviews that comment on the poor suction of this have obviously very little experience of car vacs. If you want the suction of a Dyson Animal then buy one. Indeed you can get a very nice Dyson handheld for a paltry £170. If on the otherhand you live in the real world and just want something that is sensibly priced and does the job reasonably well then I think that this could be for you.
Mine only arrived today but I couldn't help but give it a try. I must admit that I didn't have high hopes after having many car vacs in different guises over the years and finding most of them wouldn't suck the foam off my beer. I was very pleasantly surprised. I live in the depths of Pembrokeshire surrounded by fields and farm traffic and often drive my car in muddy wellies. Well, my car wasn't to bad today, just some dried mud and quite a bit of road grit plus the usual detritus trodden into a car. It sucked up the lot. Not with great ease like the Dyson, but it did it. I was surprised and pleased.
Overall the build quality is OK for something of this price range. Your not going to be handing it onto your grandkids but what do you expect for £30! One thing that I like about it is that for a change some thought has been given to the design as to regards end user convenience. Unlike the normal vacs that look like leaf blowers and are only good for doing large flat areas, this with its flexible tube, and interchangeable tools, can get into those awkward little spaces that usually end up looking like something from the bottom of a bin. Then you have a really practical cable tidy.The bin is easy to empty and the filters are simple to clean.
Like all gadgets that are this general price category it is far from perfect but for the price I am impressed and I can quite honestly say it is the first 12v vac I have found which seems reasonably adequate for the job.

After reading mixed reviews about this product, I was unsure whether to order this version (which plugs into the cigarette lighter socket) or the rechargeable cordless version. I decided that this would be more convenient, as I could keep it in the car and use it at any time without having to make sure it was fully charged.

I am a Professional Dog Walker, and have 3 dogs of my own, so have a fair amount of hairs and grit to deal with! I tend to use a dustpan and brush to get rid of the majority of dog hairs, but this vacuum is great for the bits I have missed. It's also great for grit, crumbs, and getting into small spaces, which is what I wanted. The brush attachment is quite soft, so can be used on hard surfaces without scratching them. The vacuum is also easy to move around, has a long cord, and folds up neatly. All in all, a very good buy!

I read a lot of reviews before purchasing this little car vac, having seen some that were not so positive, i wasn't sure what to expect.

I have two little ones and with school runs and after school activities we do get a lot of crumbs and mess in the car.

Having used used this several times i am impressed. Its a great little compact vac. Looks very smart and does do a good job. Its handy to have a vac in the car so when i get a spare few mins i can get the car clean.

Suction : its great for what it is, a 12V car vac. If comparing it with a mains vac then yes, of course, you will see that the suction isn't as good but you can't really compare the two. Mains will always be more powerful. I found the suction ample for cleaning the car. As some reviewers say though, leave the engine running as this will make a difference.

The tools provided are also great. It comes with a slim attachment that's great for getting into little places like between the seats. The attachment with the brush is useful for running along the dashboard so it wont scratch anything.

My other half is very picky and he loves it too.

Negatives : Well, I'm now left with no excuse for a messy car..
