Intelligent Design - Powerful Performance
To extract even more power from the Rapido rechargeable, they have completely re-designed the fan unit. First, they have boosted vacuum by optimising air flow with the help of gas-turbine technology. Then, to reduce losses, they have encapsulated the fan. And finally, they have tweaked the shape and angle of the fan blades. The result is an intelligent piece of engineering that generates higher airflow and suction than ever before
The Handheld Vacuum Cleaner with Wheels
Rapido - the only rechargeable handheld with wheels - has become one of the most popular on the market. The reason for wheels is simple: They take the strain off hands and arms. Not only does this make Rapido easy to use and manoeuvre, but the soft wheels protect surfaces from scratches. Crumbs on the tablecloth? No problem: Rapido cleans tablecloths quickly and easily because the wheels help prevent textiles from being sucked in.
With many conventional handheld cordless cleaners, dust clogs the filters, reducing the suction power. To prevent this, Rapido rechargeable vacuum cleaners create a cyclonic flow that spins the dust around in the dust container so that less gets stuck in the filters. The cleaner the filters, the more the suction power.
Multi Angle Charge Stand
With the included multi-angle charge stand, you have the choice of a table top charger, with multiple positions for easy access or you can wall mount it, why not in the kitchen or garage.

I can directly compare it to a vax unit that I bought just a month ago, at a similar price point to this.
- The wheels. On carpet especially the nozzle can and would dig in (the vax does!) but the wheels mean you can smoothly "drive" the unit along instead of having to support it with your wrist.
- The weight. It feels significantly lighter than the vax unit and a lot of this weight loss is likely to be battery. So it has to be said, there IS some advantage to going for a lower voltage model.
- The cyclone does mean stuff gets dumped in the plastic box area at the front rather than on the filter - mostly at least.
- The charge dock. It's effortless, you just dump it in.
- The telescopic nozzle is very long.
I don't like:
- Emptying it. You have to pull the whole front off, there's no quick release or "hold it over the bin and press this button" thing here. As someone who's allergic to dust, I like to keep things at arm's length.
- Cleaning the filter. It's still a 'fluff magnet' even with the cyclone thingy. You can wash it to get the dust out though, which I find mitigates my allergy a lot.
You should consider:
- It wouldn't be powerful enough for the car, I don't think. Cars demand especially strong vacuums due to all the awful crevices and the crazy loop pile carpets they seem to use.
- AEG do more powerful models too.
- 10 minutes battery life is quite long for quick cleanups. In fact, in my opinion you can do a flight of stairs in 10 minutes.Read more ›
The rechargeable cleaner is cordless and it has great suction.
There is also an orange extension nozzle, a little bristle brush, two little wheels that help it's to glide along surfaces and it much quieter than I expected.
When you slip it into the cradle to charge up a little orange light comes on to tell you it's charging up.
It's extremely easy to use, very light to handle, easy to open and it doesn't clog up either :-)
I got this for one reason, our stairs are a nightmare to do with an upright hoover. This little hand held one is great, not only is it easier and safer to use then our upright, the suction is brilliant and picks every little thing up.
It's a little life saver for me as now we feel safer when cleaning the stairs. :-)
Unfortunately there are two drawbacks the battery only lasts 10 minutes. Plus the instructions are terrible. They only give you pictures for how you are to use it and the clock in the pictures says 12-16hrs for full charge whilst the product information on the Amazon website says 8hrs, in words it tells you about its safety and what not to do with it.
To me this rechargeable cleaner is worth 4½ stars but with amazon's rating I can only give it 4 :-(
It would be unfair to compare this to my current 18-volt unit Vax H86-GA-P Gator Pet Handheld Vacuum Cleaner, 0.3 L, White and Red - after all, even Top Gear doesn't compare the performance of 1.0 litre Corsa against a 2.0 litre BMW!
Suction was far more than I expected at this voltage level; perhaps battery design has improved since I last had a low voltage cleaner or the design of this unit maximises the suction. Whatever the reason it was impressive.
Equally impressive is the fact that the unit has a cyclonic dust capturing system which ensures the dirt and particles do not form an impenetrable fluffy coat around the filter, but are deposited into the clear collection unit. Whether cleaning cat litter or bits from my workshop floor this worked very well.
Emptying the unit was child's play, with the filter unit being removed from the 'nose' and the contents tipped away. There was some fluff around the filter to remove but it was a small amount and hadn't impeded the impressive suction.
The small brush attachment is now permanently attached as it serves to dislodge any bits embedded into the carpet; the wheels on which this unit rolls (and which allegedly don't mark or damage the surface you're cleaning) make moving the hand-cleaner very easy: they are more than just some marketing gimmick.
The only gimmick I could find was the variable angle charging base.Read more ›
It is quick to recharge although active use is limited to about 10 minutes, since this is designed for lightweight simplke clean up jobs this is not really a problem. The unit looks nice and has two useful wheels on the front to help moving the device over larger areas whilst maintaining a set height from the cleaning surface. I found that it produced an adequate but not outstanding amount of suction consistent with what could be expected from a product in this price range and could cope with most minor kitchen spills. It can be wall mounted and features an unusual multi position mounting bracket, which I suppose some people might find useful.
This is a nice little unit, inexpensive, light and easy to use, but not suitable for heavy duty cleaning.
