- The battery is the biggest con. This hand vac is powered by ni-cd battery that may suffer from a "memory effect", it does require proper maintance (it should be fully discharged and fully recharged, you can find instuction in the manual), or the battery life will get poor. Some comsumers complained that the battery started to drain quickly after a few months of use. It would be better if the battery is lithium battery.

- Long hair will wrap around the brush, you need to manually remove those long pet and human hair.
