I got one of the Dyson stick vacs when they first came out and it is still going strong. I do leave it on charge permanently and it doesn't seem to have affected the battery life. It's perfect for doing the quick crumb clean after meals and for whipping around for the quick fix if visitors are coming. We clean it regularly and it hasn't given us any trouble.

I see on TV the other day that Vax now has a Dyson look-alike. Not sure of the price difference but would be interested to see the 2 compared. I will be investing in one in the new house (sometime next year) as our 12 year old has the house chore to vacuum through twice a week and in her haste and hatred she isn't the most careful dragging the vacuum cleaner around with her. At least the stick vacs don't have cords and a separate motor unit to have to maneuver.

Hello guys, I couldn't find a proper fresh topic to ask, yet I don't want to create a second thread.
Is there anybody who could recommend me a proper vacuum for stairs? I found some reviews, but I couldn't decide what to choose.
I need a powerful machine, which is easy to use. Also it must be lightweight.
I would be very grateful for any help.

Just want to add that the new Dysons and not compatible with the old Dysons.
I had an old one, DC35 I think. Worked fine, yes a bit expensive for what it's worth, but did its job as a handheld well. After 2 years it died on me. So I bought a newer model. Looked similar in size and shape, but was obviously an upgrade in model - bit lighter and bit shinier. But having bought it, found out that all the old accessories such as the charger, the floor stick, the tools etc do not fit the new model - they've purposely made them slightly different shaped so as not to be compatible. What a waste and how environmentally irresponsible!

That's bad. Probably not going to buy one
Guys, can you tell me, is Eureka a good brand or not? From what I found, it seems to be a better option for me. But I'd like to hear your thoughts on this first.

We have a Dyson V6.
Easy to pull apart and clean (as in more than the filters etc.)
Batteries can be upgraded with some basic tools to get around 50mins charge.
A battery indicator LCD is great too. Cost $5 on eBay. Easy to wire in. Shows you how much charge exists as you use it.
Our 15 plus years old Dyson upright is working like new.
I recently stripped it down (easy enough) and replaced some parts. Cleaned the motors, screwed it all back together and works like new.
but dyson is too costly to have. for just $30 one can get corded bissell 33A1 that can clean pet hairs, stairs and car interiors. or else you can get shark hv292 which comes for around 90$ which I think is the best in handheld vacuum cleaner.
