    Just got one of these, very impressed, good suction and quite light with plenty of tools(y) and they tell me it can be charged at 12v it'll just take longer;)

    Thanks for that - I was waiting for someone to review it before I bought one (y)

    I've got quite a few customers who have these and love them. They often buy them as a package for £299 for both the hand held and upright. When my dyson gives up the ghost I'll be buying one.

    I am dreading our old Vax packing up. It is brilliant at picking up dog hairs. We have two dogs and the whole house is carpeted in a light coloured carpet.
    It is 3kW and it appears some nonsensical EU ruling only allows low wattage vacuum cleaners now.

    I've got most of the G-Tech products including this hand held cleaner and find it very useful in the m/h. I doubt if you can charge it directly off 12v as it has a 22v battery which I charge through the inverter.

    We bought a Gtech upright after being impressed by seeing one in action. Very pleased with it; compares well to a vacuum cleaner.

    It funny that most Vax stuff get terrible reviews:confused:
    You will find plenty of vacuums that will still pick up your dog hairs, Miele are very good

    I've got the Miele Cat & Dog and it's brilliant! I was very unsure about buying a cylinder cleaner after having upright Dysons for many years but it certainly does the job.

    We've still got the old G tech 10 years old now and still does a good job but the battery doesn't hold it's charge so well nowadays.

    I have come across one of the G teck 22V handheld vacuums and thought it was very good if you want to spend that much. Having read plenty of reviews, we recently bought a Black + Decker PD1820L (currently £74.99 in Argos) which has a flexible hose with 2 attachments and quite impressive suction for what it is. The only downside is that this has a 18V battery so will have the same issues with charging.
