This is great for small jobs such as vacuuming difficult to reach parts of the house or the car. It is lightweight but reassuringly strong and all the buttons are easily within reach when in use. The charger cable means you are not restricted by cable length and can take it anywhere. I'm not sure how long a charge would last but I easily cleaned 2 cars and the power was strong from start to finish. Also included is a small hose and 4 other attachments, along with the charging cable.
