Best Cordless Yet

Date:December 14, 2013
"I have been purchasing "Shark" cordless vacuums since 2007. I have had the 12Volt, 14.4Volt & the 15.6Volt. Each time the voltage goes up so does the sucking power & battery longevity.
They usually last a good 2 years before the battery starts to fade using it constantly.
The latest 15.6Volt I bought, is still going strong after 3 years. It lasts about a week doing spot cleanups before needing charging.
So far this 18 Volt has lasted me a month doing my apartment rug before charging.It lasts about twice as long as the others.
Follow the instructions to make your battery last as long as possible. Charge it for 20 hrs. when you first get it . Then when it starts dying & won't pick up anything, let it run till dead before charging. Then charge it 16 hrs. each time after the initial charge.
I regularly clean the filter by emptying it & running it under warm water twice weekly. In those 7 years that I have owned these vacuums, I have never had to buy a filter for any of them. The filters are made to last.
Plus the suction on this vacuum is excellent for pet hair using the rug attachment. I also like the soft brush attachment for drapes or floors.
If you need a cordless vacuum for your car or the pet hair in your home, this is the best unit I have come across."

Two issues with oversights...

Date:November 19, 2013
"No battery overcharge protection. In the instructions it says to always remove the unit from the charger after the charging light has turned off when the battery is fully charged. This means you have to remember to go back to unplug the charging/storage dock; 16 hrs later in the case of a full charge .
The replacement filters house a large amount of plastic and rubber which ultimately ends up in landfill all for a little paper filter. The people at shark could have come up with a way to remove the filter from the housing for replacement. Complete waste of materials.

Great for cat hair

Date:October 6, 2013
"This was rated the top handheld vacuum in Consumer Reports. After my first smaller vacuum died after just four years I decided it would be worth it to invest in a decent vacuum for pet hair.
It lived up to the positive review CR gave it. The cat hair came right up with the brush attachment. It comes with two other attachments, for floors and crevices. What's great is that the suction is strong enough and it lasts long enough to do most of the surfaces in my living room and both staircases in one shot.
The instructions also explain how to avoid draining the battery, which could be why my first vacuum died so soon."
