AEG Lithium Wet and Dry Cordless Handheld Vacuum : Highly recommended

Light and smart handheld cleaner. This is an easy to use, straight out of the box product. Ideal for car cleaning, awkward corners, or simply when you can’t be bothered to drag a full-size vacuum cleaner around the house. For: simple to assemble and charge up. Very straightforward to use. 5kg which means it doesn’t make your arm ache. Excellent in that there’s no bags to replace (you just empty out the main ‘body’ of the cleaner. Also excellent in that it doesn’t use expensive replaceable filters – just a washable filter which you can clean under a tap. So future expense kept to a minimum.

Really effective rechargeable handheld cleaner. This is a really useful and effective handheld vacuum cleaner. It doesn’t come with loads of accessories for you to use; just a bright orange (less likely to lose) crevice tool and a black rubber attachment to use when you are vacuuming up liquids rather than dry bits and pieces. The latter sits in the charging unit and it is a bit of a shame that the crevice tool doesn’t also have a place to live. The cleaner takes around four hours to charge and then is good for around twenty minutes or so. There are two speeds for you to choose from depending on what you are doing. The dust container is easy to empty and has a reasonable capacity for this sort of handheld device. This cleaner works well; better most of the other handheld cleaners of this sort that i’ve used. Ideal for small spaces, the car, cleaning up spills, or when you can’t be bothered to get the big cleaner out. I particularly like using it on the stairs because it is small and light and easy to move around.

If you have children buy it now. Best in the market to don’t waste your money to buy dyson.Here are the specifications for the AEG Lithium Wet and Dry Cordless Handheld Vacuum:

  • Soft surface wheels for manoeuvrability
  • Easy to clean filter
  • Integrated telescopic crevice nozzle
  • 11 minutes running time

The vacuum the machine makes is good. I give it 4 stars, because it doesn’t have good enough filter and many times dust particles pass through the filter it comes with, so these dust particles are getting into the engine compartment of the machine, which i assume at some point will kill it, but we’ll see, i’ll try to update my review in the future to extend on that front.

When i got this i have to admit i was a little sceptical as to how good these things are. Previously owning 2 different branded vacuums, both went kaput very quickly and left a bad impression. Opening the box you will find the vac itself, a charging dock which is mountable, a rubber adapter for the end of the nozzle and an extended nozzle for hard to reach places. The vac itself is fairly light, made from varying plastics and looks sleek. This for the most will be used for my car and cleaning up after my 2 small children who are basically a tornado of mess. The vac has enough power to easily cleanup food off the floor, off the rug and dirt from the car floors. The power while not mind blowing, is easily enough to do a great job. In the car it coped well and took up plenty of dirt and debris from the mats and upholstery. Overall despite being fairly expensive, it’s easily the best hand held vacuum i’ve tried within 100 pounds.

  • Does What I Wanted

I have used a number of cordless vacuum cleaners over the years. They are highly valuable tools for cleaning areas where traditional cleaners are impractical to use such as car boots, stairs, etc. This vacuum cleaner from aeg comes with the cordless cleaner, filter, charging cradle and manual. Unboxingall items were well packed and complete. I did not need to use the instructions as everything was quite clear. There was some charge from the box. Simply remove the packaging, plug the charging cradle into a walls main plug, and place the vacuum on top to charge. Charging typically takes a couple of hours and inserting/removing the cleaner from the charger was easy. The vacuum is light wright for a cordless cleaner and comfortable to hold.

I have a cheaper vax model and this aeg cleaner beats it hands down. It has real suction and sucks up everything on the floor. Secondly, the attachment that extends the missile is really good and allows you to get into edges and corners. With my vax if you press down hard on the nose attachment then it retracts but not a problem with this aeg model. It’s worth paying the extra money for this cleaner as it’s noticeably better than my cheaper vax model. The instructions aren’t the greatest but it’s so easy to use that you don’t really need them. I sometimes accidentally press the on/off button when using it as it’s close to where my thumb rests. The charging system is a bit strange. Rather than a simple plug it comes instead with a charging plate that you can screw to the wall or just have lying out. I’m not too sure about this – i think i would have preferred a simple plug. Maybe if i had a cupboard with a socket where it can be put out of the way i would attach it to a wall. However, these downsides are relatively insignificant and won’t stop me awarding it 5 stars as it is a class product.

      Good for both dust and liquid. The suction is not very powerful, however it sill good enough to pickup general household dust and cat litter. The liquid suction is better than my expectation. The only downside is that the dust/liquid holding cup is not sealing tight like a deadlock, look out don’t lean the cleaner backward while liquid inside, doubt the liquid will leak out or flow to the motor side.

    Works much better than i thought and really handy ready to use for spills etc. I have mine on the wall in the kitchen and it saves so much time getting the full size cleaner out and keeps the place looking neat.

    Further to my review below i’ve now had the vac for a week and i’m very happy with it. I’ve cleaned the stairs, dog hair and general garden matter shed by the pooch, food fallen from the table from my 4 & 2 yr old children and even a glitter explosion caused by my 2 yr old. . I even hoovered her hair out as there was glitter everywhere. . And it’s minor really, was that the filter let a very small amount of the microfine glitter through. 0001% of the total amount i hoovered up. I’m not sure if this was because the filter fitting needs adjustment or if the glitter passed through the filter (it’s much much finer than your standard glitter) but considering how good the vac is in every other way i’m still very happy with my purchase. I don’t know what the few reviews that say this unit doesn’t have great suction but i’m pretty impressed with the suction on this handheld vac. . Maybe theirs had a dirty filter or they just didn’t know how to use it?the base is easy to screw to the wall and overall the unit feels sturdy. It needs x3 only screws but these aren’t provided. As it’d the litium model it takes 4 hours to charge. My only gripe is that there’s no place i can store the crevice tool on thebnae.

    I bought this as sometimes when i am hoovering in the kitchen the floor can be a bit wet by the sink and i wanted something that would cope with that and this does perfectly. It has great suction, the only downside would be that it doesn’t have a little brush end like my old hoover one, but i love this. It does exactly what it says and aeg are a really good make, so i’m very happy.

        Doesn’t last as long as it states but holds a lot and pucks up well.

      A bit pricey, but works well. Time will tell how much better than the £20 ni-cad this turns out to be.

    Solidly built, and does the job well. . I had been mulling over the purchase of a handheld cleaner for several weeks, so was delighted to be offered this through the vine programme, especially as it was a more expensive model than the one i’d been considering. ?it arrived in a sturdy box, complete with wall-mountable charging dock and charger. It also comes with two little ‘beaks’ that slot into the nozzle. There’s a hard plastic, longer one that’s for ‘normal’ use, ie dry vacuuming, and a short rubber one for wet use. The suction is really very good, and copes with gravelly stones, screws, etc without problems. It is quite quiet in use too, although if you hoover up some fine dust particles, or in my case some ash dust that had accumulated next to the front of my stove (long since cooled down, of course), it suddenly starts making a much more ‘vroomy’ noise, presumably because the filter gets a bit clogged by the dust. Doesn’t greatly affect the performance, but the noise level noticeably rises. It does also have two speeds, low and high, but to be honest, i struggle to see why i’d use ‘low’.

      A really great little itemit’s a good size and can hold a lot of dirt before needing emptying, and its easy to disasemble and clean the filter. For a compact little handheld hoover it has excellent suction. It deals with pet hair on the sofa particually well, and easily deals with small spills / messes around the home. I really like the fact that it’s cordless, and one charge lasts a very long time. It’s going to be particually useful at christmas time , when you don’t have the time or space to lug out the large vacum cleaner.

    Overall very good although a bit loud. Overall a good wet and dry mini cordless vacuum cleaner, something we find absolutely essential having two children. Positive points:- it really works on wet items, we used it on some reminder of spilled milk with muesli and it worked like a dream- the little orange wheels look a bit odd but are good when vacuuming something wet off your table- the suction is very good, especially on the stronger setting (there are two speeds)- the filter is washable and easy to clean- can be mounted to the wall- runs for around 15 minutes on full charge, this might sound like not too much, believe me it’s more than enough for a mini cordless vacuumnegative points:- it is quite loud, especially when using it on the stronger setting- it heavier than the braun we had before (although this has a stronger motor).
