Has practical features, is somewhat cumbersome to handle when changing the attachments and when docking to the charging station.

The ProfiCare - PC-BS 3035A Battery-powered hand vacuum cleaner makes a very good impression with the cleaning result and its flexible setting options as a hand vacuum cleaner. The fact that the vacuum cleaner can be folded is also very practical. A disadvantage, however, is the battery, which lasts only 20 minutes maximum, which is little compared to the charging time of 4.5 hours.
The ProfiCare - PC-BS 3035A Battery-powered hand vacuum cleaner is in a simple but functionally illustrated package and is ready for use as soon as it is removed from the carton, but should still be charged, as the battery is very weak. One battery charge takes about 4.5 hours, after which the vacuum cleaner can be used for about 20 minutes.
The device is kept grey and the switches are highlighted in blue.
The vacuum cleaner can be easily assembled from its accessories and simply plugged into each other. Since the vacuum cleaner can also be used as a hand vacuum cleaner, the small attachments can only be used for the smaller opening. The large suction foot, on the other hand, is intended for normal vacuum cleaners.
The large suction foot has small lights at the front for better visibility in dark corners. There is a brush under the foot.
The vacuum cleaner can vacuum in 3 stages. In normal mode, the battery lasts about 20 minutes, which is barely enough for normal use in several rooms. You should therefore use the battery sparingly and use the turbo mode only in stubborn cases. The LED lights indicate the battery level.
The dirt container is easy to remove and easy to clean by hand. The brush on the vacuum cleaner foot can also be easily removed and cleaned of dirt. It can be re-engaged with a click system but is not intended to be removed more often.
A small lever on the handle can be used to bend the rod of the vacuum cleaner to make it more manoeuvrable. This works in both directions. Otherwise, you cannot adjust the size of the vacuum cleaner.
While you are not using the vacuum cleaner, you can simply lean it forward. It stops on its own without having to be leaned against anything.
With just over 2 kilograms, the device is not too heavy and is easy to handle. The castors under the foot also make handling easier. These must be regularly freed of hair, otherwise, their flexibility will be restricted. The castors are only impractical if you want to place the device back on the station, as it often tilts backwards and the castors then slip off the station. If you've done this a couple of times, you've got the knack, though.
The volume is comparatively low at 66 dB.
With the station standing on the floor, the vacuum cleaner has a fixed place and can load there at the same time. This means that the vacuum cleaner is immediately ready for use when you want to use it. The vacuum cleaner cannot be charged independently of the station.
The cleaning result is good and above all smooth floors are cleaned by the vacuum cleaner in an instant, but in case of heavy soiling, it pushes the particles in front of it, which are also quickly sucked away. On carpets, only a few transitions are needed until the result is satisfactory and only a few snippets remain. Only at the edges does the vacuum cleaner have slight problems getting rid of all the particles.
In the highest mode, the vacuum cleaner picks up particles from the ground even faster and better, but then the battery life suffers.
