12volt car vacums...any good ?

Hi
Was thinking about investing in a 12 volt car vacum....have any of you got 1 ?  I have been told they are not that powerfull & i would be better off with an extention lead & the old Dyson out on the drive  neutral
Although i realise the 12v will be portable & less hassle..should i need a quick vacum when not at home...any makes & model tips much appreciated  wink

Re: 12volt car vacums...any good ?

Hhhmmmmmmm.......good question. I had one years ago and to be honest didnt use it a lot. Felt that by the time I went to get it out of cupboard I could have got the normal hover and yes it didnt seem that powerful. I also tried one of those small re-chargeable ones you can get..........got sick of re-charging it big_smile

Now I just use the big vacuum  in front of the house. much better.

Re: 12volt car vacums...any good ?

Personally, in the past i have found them quite useless at picking up things. Got the new dustbuster recently and i may as well not bother trying to properly vacuum the car. Maybe for picking up crumbs but i prefer to use a 'proper' vacuum :oops:

Annoying thing was mum asked me today if i wanted one for my birthday still & i said Yes  :oops:
Will have to grab her early tommorow & stop her dash to Arogs lol  big_smile
By the sounds of it im better of making the effort to get the Dyson out on the drive  wink

Complete waste of cash.

You are better off with 5 mins from the garage vacuum machine but watch the hose it gets really filthy sometimes.

You want a birthday present - how about a home shredder to ward of identity theft

Re: 12volt car vacums...any good ?

50p from car boot sale does for me. keep it in the car's boot (as it were) and use it those times youre 10 mins early for a lesson, along with a shake out of the mats does the trick. I use it more often than i hoover the house! (althought thats not saying much....)

Re: 12volt car vacums...any good ?

I got a rechargable hoover from Tesco (one of the cheapo Value ones!) and it does the job nicely! If I am doing a major clean out then I get the big hoover but for a once a week clean its fine! Also used it when I spilt a drink because it soaks up liquids too!
