I have been looking for a handheld vacuum for so long and then this one popped up and I thought I'd give it a go. It is so good! I got it mainly because my gerbils like to kick their wood shavings out of the cage so it would be a good tool to pick up all of the little bits they kick out and it is quite powerful so does just what I wanted it to do. It is also quite lightweight so is very easily transportable and where is it quite small and handheld it is easy to pack and take with you. If you are looking for a nice easy handheld vacuum then give this one a go.
