This entry brings 2 novelties: this is the first Dirt Devil and also the first handheld vacuum cleaner that I review. Termed as the best handheld vacuum that comes with the “power of an upright vacuum in your palm”, the Devil Hand Vac 2.0 bagless handheld vacuum is definitely a little beast and lives up to its name. It ensures that even the hard to reach areas and narrow corners of your house remain clean and dust free at all times. Over the following 2 minutes of your time, let’s have a close look at its various features in this review.
This vacuum is designed to easily get to places where a regular full sized vacuum can’t, such as stairs, vehicles, furniture, carpets, and so on. The Devil Hand vacuum quickly deals with dirt and small particles in corners and couches with its plug-in, non-stop power. The machine encompasses red on black design, and has wide mouthed nozzle at 6.5 inches that closely holds motor-driven high speed brush rolls, making it best for picking up all types of debris and dirt. The vacuum is lightweight and has a small footprint. It can be packed and you can easily take it along even on your trips.
The vacuum’s motor driven high speed brushroll keeps rolling through any type of mess, big or small. You can empty dirt cup using its one touch button. This allows you to dump all the dirt at the mere touch of a button. Its reusable quick-rinse filter means you save bucks that you would have to otherwise spend on buying replacement filters. The vacuum is also equipped with a really long 20’ power cord. This allows you to take this machine anywhere without having to plug and unplug it again and again.
But lets not get ahead of ourselves and first, lets have a brief look over this product:
The sheet of features (adapted for handhelds)
|Suction power||This handheld vacuum cleaner uses its strong motor together with a Turbo air-driven brushroll, coupled to the product by a belt like the one you can see in the pic bellow (style 17):
|Input power||The motor of this product is very efficient. Previous handhelds from Dirt Devil had input powers of up to 7 Amps. The second version of Hand Vac Bagless runs with only 2 Amps!|
|Dust capacity||Has about 0.6 liters capacity, enough for a good run. You can dispose the dust inside the bin with just a push of a button, so I'm satisfied with this cup size.|
|Filtration system efficiency||As presented above, comes with washable filters. Not even close to HEPA standard, but pretty good actually, one of the best of what I've seen in handhelds.|
|Weight and Dimensions||Weights an incredible 2.8 lbs! Previous versions weighted 4 lbs or more. This is indeed the lightest handheld I ever tested.|
|Warranty||1 year for motor and parts, common for Dirt Devil.|
|Accessories||There are no accessories with this vacuum cleaner, but most of us don't really need any from a handheld.|
|Special features||No special features to report, except the product has a dependable quality and one of the best customer support.|
|Usability||The good length of the power cord (20 ft) coupled with the diameter of the nozzle width (6.5 in) ensures a good usability. The noise produced by the vacuum is low. People use it virtually anywhere, from homes, to cars, restaurants and even cinemas.|
|Price||The great thing about this product is it's price, which is discounted today to $29.89.|
Now, this unit also comes with a unique replacement belt and replacement tool. It’s owner’s manual has all the instructions on ways to replace the belt. The entire replacement process is easy, as you just have to remove few screws, disassemble some parts and slip in your new belt using the belt tool, and put on everything back together.
This electricity operated vacuum has all the convenience of a battery powered machine. There are no bags, you just need to empty a small cup, and it has an easy to clean filter. The vacuum has much more power, but you are limited by the reach of its cord.
