I brought this to clean my car and needed good suction to remove clumps of mud, dog hair and grit. It certainly removed them and the motorised head which is not air powered but a separate electric motor which gets its power through two prongs just above the nozzle join is very good with its coarse and stiff bristles.

But what good is it when you can only get six minutes of use out of it. I figured I could just get a second battery and have that on charge while I vacuum with another battery - alas not! The only way to charge a battery is to couple it to the device and charge it. A major design oversight in my opinion.

I could forgive the six minute thing if the price was not so high and use it for spot cleaning as the suction and bristle are really good. But £95 is too much for very occasional spot cleaning in my opinion and not enough charge for a good car cleaning, which meant I returned the product and spend my £95 on a better portable vacuum cleaner! A token two stars for this product - good suction and good motorised head.

As an owner of a couple of cats and having always found it difficult to get the stair carpet clear of cat fur- I ordered this machine with little real hope that it would be able to get fur easily off the carpet. However, charged it up for 3 hours, turned it on and hey presto, stairs cleaned of car fur easily with no real difficulty.
Would recommend this to anyone with pets as it does what it says- the rotating head attachment clears through carpet pile, its light and easy to use, its not too noise and charges easily. The instructions are a little unclear- only pictures with little text but did manage to figure the pictures out. That is pretty small negative though as on the whole it is user friendly and gives great results.

less enthusiastic than other reviews, I'm afraid
looks good and not heavy, so easy to handle
- however like other Dyson products is over-designed but under-built - feels flimsy and not likely to last (had Dyson fullsize vacuum - heavy, dirty and kept breaking)- also short battery life a pain
in it's favour is that suction is excellent, if short lived, and power brush pretty good.
no real competition in the U.K. - maybe that explains the outrageous purchase price - should be about £60-£70 for what you get.

I bought this as a replacement for an ageing Dustbuster. It is considerably larger and I suppose the design is a matter of taste (I like it but can see that some may not want it on display anywhere).
Fist of all the battery life. 6 mins sounds, and is, a short period of time. However, this is not meant as a main vacuum or for larger clean up jobs. I have found in practice that the 6 mins life of the battery is more than enough for most jobs. If you are a bit fussy like me you will probably run out of charge using it to clean the car! but for most other things no problem. It would be nice if there was some kind of warning that the charge is running out, at the moment it just stops mid cleaning with no warning. All this said the machine is quite heavy and you may find that you have had enough after 6 mins anyway.
The suction is superb on this vacuum, without a doubt the best handheld I have tried. It picks up dust and hair and debris easily. All the usual Dyson features are here too, clear bin, easy emptying, washable filters.
The powered head is great (it is electrically powered not suction) it makes short work of any cleaning on fabrics or carpets. You do have to keep the head at the right angle to get the most from it though. Other tools included are good too (long crevice tool and crevice/brush tool) but can't be stored with the machine.
Overall I am very pleased with this machine and would recommend it to anyone looking for a really good hand held cleaner, particularly if you have pets. Don't let the 6 mins thing put you off either it really is enough for most small to medium jobs which is what this is designed to tackle.

I've only had this a day and can't wait for it to recharge. Yes it has a short 6 minute charge that you have to use wisely, but boy when it's ready it sucks up cat hair a treat. I've never seen my sofa so clean!

Bit expensive perhaps but my boyfriend loves the look of this and there is more chance of me having clean stairs etc with him wanting to use it because it looks so cool - shame it doesn't make shooting noises though, or you get a pair to fight with!

I have never used a battery powered vac before so to be fair I cannot compare this with other products on the market. I love the Jetson styling - it looks like a ray gun from a fifties sci-fi movie! The suction power is impressive for a machine of this size and I have found the compact size means you are more inclined to use it. It does seem to run out fairly quickly so for example if you were to vac all the small bits in a double size room such as my kitchen diner it will run out so do not expect to do the whole house in one go! I also doubt that it would adequately clean your car interior on one charge. Dyson say six minutes use from one charge which takes about three hours. I think this is ideal as a backup for your main vac and saves hauling a heavy machine out for a small clean up. It's a shame they don't provide a second battery such as you would get with a battery drill or a car cigarette lighter attachment - it would have got five stars in that case.
