Dyson DC30 Handheld Vacuum Cleaner : Excellent and surprisingly powerful

Excellent and surprisingly powerful. Dyson: the epitome of doing exactly what it says on the tin. Having a dyson upright cleaner and needing a cordless to deal with the interior of my car but having had past experience of the notorious ‘dustbuster’ i was wary. It was only dyson’s reputation that swung me. Well worth the money, this little beast boasts above-average suction for the size of the motor and has good battery life, relatively speaking. The battery life is more than ample to thoroughly clean every nook and cranny of the interior of my car and still have a little left to fetch up the crumbs on my kitchen side before it needs recharging – and recharging is fast (again, relatively speaking). As well as the innovative standard tool cum retractable brush tool there is a long wand so that you really can reach every nook and cranny. As i said, i purchased primarily to use this in my car as it is awkward to get a mains vacuum to it but i’ve used this everywhere from the kitchen to cobwebs to taking out a moth annoyingly orbiting the light fitting. It is very versatile and always there when you need a vacuum but the job doesn’t justify fetching the mains cleaner out of the cupboard. As with other dyson vacuums it is made of tough materials such as polycarbonate and features ‘push-click’ assembly making it a doddle to empty (hold it over a bin, press the button) and take down for cleaning.

We have had one for 3 years and use it 2 or 3 times a day, it is on charge all the time. Use instead of a dust pan,and to remove dirt piled up by a long handled brush. Great for soil brought in from garden. Don’t have to get down on your hands and knees, not so easy these days. Bought second one recently as a 70th present for a friend with parkinsons, she is delighted. Suction good, emptying easy, convenience super. Needs to be kept on charge as battery life not terrific.

Dyson cleaners are known for two traits a quirky design and good suction and that is what you get here in a handheld form. The design is a little strange but at least it looks like a dyson. It comes ready assembled and well packed in recyclable packaging. The instruction book is typical dyson which means it seems to be designed for someone who cannot read and it has lots of pictures of how to take the cleaner apart for emptying and cleaning all that is missing are the words which i would find useful. However having charged the battery for about three hours it is ready to go to work and work it does. The tank fills up quite quickly but emptying it is easy and gives you a rest. The cleaner is quite well balanced and is not very heavy to hold and use. Oh and it makes a typical dyson sound. Of course it really does clean.

Pro:verry strong suctioneasy to emptykeeps on strong til the endlight sign when battery is almost emptydisadvantage:difficult to handle for people with artritis or loss of muscle power in their handsyou have to put the adapter in the vacum cleaner. It would be easier to have a slot with adapter to slide the cleaner in.

Reviews from purchasers :

  • A great little cleaner
  • Great product but Battery life is not great so ended
  • very good value for money

Great vacuuming power from a small package. This hand-held vacuum feels very sturdy in construction and has a well-balanced feel as soon as you pick it up. It is very easy to empty the bin and the suction is powerful for a hand-held. It can be quite convenient and addictive to use this to suck away small crumbs and mess here and there – the 6-9 minutes of battery life is as stated but luckily recharges are not too long. Been using it quite a bit since we got it and love the product. Another great dyson invention.

Very convenient for the motorhome.

      Another reviewer said that a damp cloth works better and for some kinds of mess i’d agree but. Yes it’s a lot of money for a hand held vac but it does work really well. I find the run time to be ok and if i needed longer than the 5 minutes i would most likely need a bigger vac for a job that size. It picks up very well and i didn’t find this heavy to hold. Another reviewer said that a damp cloth works better and for some kinds of mess i’d agree but with dry mess this is a quick and easy way to deal with it. I find it useful but yes it is a bit of luxury gadget and wouldn’t take the place of a large vac.

    Clever product , short battery life. Lovely looking clever design. I find using it i have to rush to do a whole car on one charge – maybe we are just messier than average??i have had smaller car vacs before and this sucks much better (more like using a proper hoover), just make sure it is fully charged first.
