Magdalenap463's review of Vax LiFE cordless upright cleaner

★☆☆☆☆

“Vac to the Future....I think not!”

Written on: 25/08/2017 by Magdalenap463 (1 review written)

Bought this from BQ about 8 months ago and at first it worked well on carpets and saved me dragging the usual archaic upright upstairs.
This thing is hopeless on hard floors. One gets better results walking on the floor wearing damp socks!
I soon got fed up with emptying the pathetic dust container almost every time it was used. Ended up cleaning the filter with another vaccuum cleaner.
As for the run time.... hopeless...barely 13 minutes on high...who wants to use it on Low anyway?

PLUS POINTS.
Light enough to move around and cordless.
Good enough on carpets.(Remember, its the rotating brush doing the work...the suck is almost non-existent.
Looks a nice design.(until one inspects more carefully).

NEGATIVES:
The swivel head adds nothing to the operation and may just as well be fixed.
The filter is a real pain to clean out.
Every internal part has to be cleaned meticulously if you want it to pick up anything.
The detachable power unit is very poorly balanced and only sucks if the short pipe extension is fitted. Then it becomes unwieldy to handle.

CONCLUSION.
ABSOLUTELY USELESS.
A WORTHLESS PIECE OF GARBAGE WHICH I HAVE JUST SMASHED TO BITS.
