Your expectations will dictate what you think of this....,
This review is from: Vax H90-GA-B Gator Handheld Vacuum Cleaner (Kitchen & Home)
I bought this to keep a small room clean and maybe a few others on a daily basis. I didnt want to use the big vacuum everyday (with all due respect Henry seriously needs to lose weight) and since a handheld dyson is far too expensive (also apparently seriously short battery life) and other handhelds have hit and miss reviews I settled on this. Not exactly cheap but a very good company VAX is.
I think its pretty good overall....its easy and simple to use. It has great suction and is fairly nimble for its size (it is deceptively bigger than the picture suggests). It has a great battery life and is easy to empty/clean. Comes with a good warrenty which is simple to activate.
The bad points. This is always going to be one with handhelds and is the battery life could be longer. Under heavy duty tasks one after the other the battery does wain and will run out. Its great at doing the tasks just dont expect it to clean the entire house in one go. The real bad points are that it takes an age to charge (literally all night!). The worst thing about this vaccuum is the total lack of an indicator to say when the battery is fully charge! Basic and elementry mistake from VAX. Unbelievable. It also get filled pretty quick, the way the filter gets clogged just amazes me. Has dust and all the crap. So emptying is a bit useless as it all gets in the filter. I personally have to clean the filter to empty the damn thing.
This is just me nit picking. Take nothing away from VAX, great suction and great easy product to use. Would recommend to buy it and at least give it a go.
