The device is mainly designed in silver and black.

Suction result

Smooth surfaces are easily sucked off by the vacuum cleaner.

The vacuum cleaner only vacuums the top layer of the carpet. Snippets that are easily caught in the carpet are only picked up roughly. Many operating steps are necessary until no more snippets hang in the carpet.

The container is very small and is mainly filled by the filter so that after a short time the container has to be emptied and interrupted.

The cordless vacuum cleaner has a small dirt container with a small socket. Here in detail

There is a small pull-out rail that extends the suction inlet. It does not snap into place and therefore only makes sense if you want to suck into corners, but not to exert pressure on it, as it then slides back again.

A rubber seal, which rests on the container during use, closes the container so that no dirt can fall out again.


The unit is supplied with a bracket that can be mounted on the wall. So the vacuum cleaner can be easily hooked in for loading and has a fixed place. A control lamp lights up red when charging. If the appliance is fully charged, it lights up permanently. A full battery lasts approx. 5 minutes, whereby the suction power deteriorates considerably after approx. 4 minutes. The charging time is approx. 180 minutes.

To quickly empty only the dirt, you can open the container without removing it completely from the unit.

The cleaning of the device is very easy. When you press a button, the container separates from the base unit and is easy to wash out. The filter is hooked into the container with a rubber coating so that the dirt does not fall directly against you when you remove the container.
