In short, I'm after a vacuum cleaner for the car. Due to the locations where I clean car I dont have any power or its to far away to run an extention lead. I've been looking at the Black & Decker 18v Dustbuster Pivot. I borrowed the one from my mates work a 15mins, then it ran out of power but the suction on it amazing, collect so much dirt and dust from the carpets. I was really impressed. Only negative point was how long it lasted. From what I think is a full charge to empty in about 10-15mins. I was able to do all the carpets, some of the boot sides and seats. It was fine really for doing one car for the amount of suction you get. Does any one recommend a different type of hand vac? Cordless or 12v corded.
