Battery pack just arrived
Don't bother with this vaccum. The battery pack doesn't last long enough and when you buy an additional battery pack for $69.99 plus shipping you will not receive as told. We were told 6 weeks and we are working on 3 months and still waiting. Buy a shark.
We bought a Jashen V16 as a "household" Christmas gift. The reviews were good and the price was very competitive. When we unpacked it we were a little concerned about the very plastic unit. It seemed unsubstantial and, to be honest, we are not sure yet about long term durability. But we forged ahead. So far, after 3 weeks, it is working like a champ! Battery life on medium (the recommended setting) is decent - lasting a good 35-45 minutes. On high only expect 10-15 minutes. At least there is a nice visual display to let you know where you stand. It does a great job on carpets, floors and talk about handy for furniture! We have 2 cats and it handles fur as well as anything we've tried. It is honestly replacing our upright for most cleaning as it does as good or a better job.
The reason for the plastic parts is clear now - it is a weight savings. It really is quite light and easy to use. Cordless is so nice. We use it without the long "stick" attachment a lot on stairs and furniture. So why only 4 stars? Edge cleaning. Do not expect this little gem to clean right up to the baseboards. You will need to switch to the attachment for edges.
But, especially for the price, you really can't beat the V16. If you want to triple or quadruple the cost, I hear the Dyson is awesome, but seeing is I can buy several of these first, I think I'm pretty satisfied.
We needed a replacement for an old Dyson hand vacuum and snagged this on special through the CNN store of all places. Better than the Dyson ever was. Really couldn't be happier, regardless of how I feel about now being old enough to be so excited about a new vacuum that I write a review for it.
La batteria fa il suo lavoro e i tempi di funzionamento e carica sono più o meno quelli specificati. Sono quindi fiducioso sulla sua durata nel tempo
