Shark anyone? Update: Not a Shark..


Recommended Posts

Having sampled several models I'm still searching for a handheld, rechargeable vacuum with tools that make it useful for car interior cleaning.

 

I thought I might have to try the Dyson Boat & Car model but this has been discontinued in the UK and the other variants don't have the relevant crevice tools.

 

Today I saw the "Shark Cordless Handheld Vacuum Cleaner [Twin Battery] WV251UK" but I've so far been unable to see what its crevice tool is like. It also seems to have quite a short battery life on one charge (8 mins quoted!).

 

Has anyone tried one of these?

Sorry can't help, I'm not at the stage in life where I need a crevice cleaner :lol:

 

I just take the corded dyson out and use that, the hose goes miles so not much repositioning required. Also it's been out many times in the rain which doesn't seem to affect it.

Will it go down the three floors of stairs and 50m across the car park :P ?

Good. I don't think I could afford all the H&S signage required!

I use a hand held Dyson. But it was a 'hand me down' and the battery on full boost lasts about 20 minutes - I think the new ones are better. Its good for stairs as well. But I think they are a lot of money new.

I would have bought the Dyson a few weeks ago but the disappearance of the "Car & Boat" model meant the range of tools was limited (e.g. nothing that would go down the side of a seat).

Mine was ok for 12 months and now it lasts five minutes on a full charge, I`d never buy another.

Well this thread was started a long time ago but I do get round to completing things.... eventually.

Unpacking - Yes, It's a Henry:

Came with a free accessory:

Henry now lives in the Garage with the Z, apart from his battery which lives indoors. The battery looks like (you can see it in the top) old school technology similar to those used by Bosch (and other?) cordless drills, so it doesn't hold its charge when not in use, and therefore you have to charge an hour or so before taking it downstairs!

 

However, when in use it certainly runs for over 15 minutes (they claim 30mins but none of my cars has not been that dirty yet!) and suction is similar to a mains Henry.

 

I'm very pleased with it.

At least 15 minutes and I've only had the need to suck at notch I (notch II also available)

I'll have you know Henry has no Blowing capability.

 

As for sucking at notch II, a chat with experienced staff at your nearest A&E will I'm sure enlighten you to the possible consequences..
