Battery life is very good and does a great job for little messes around the house. Better than some others I have seen.

Nice little device. The rechargeable battery is definitely a plus and make it very portable. No more carrying power cord with you or running out of cable while cleaning. Power rating is enough to vacuum dust and small things. Cannot be expected to have very strong suction power like vacuum cleaners with a cord. However its portability makes it a nice device to have around the house for small daily cleaning. can be used in the car and for cleaning your computer as well.
Have not tried for liquids yet, but it does come with a different nozzle that has rubber in the front.

We bought it to replace a 7.2V hand vancuum from another company that has served us very well over the last couple of years, but has reached it sell-by date. Unfortunately this vacuum doesn't compare well with the old one.
The bad news:
It has trouble sucking up things that our previous hand vacuum picked up without a hitch. Sometimes I have to walk past the Bosch hand vacuum and get a dustpan and broom from the cupboard. Did I unpack the unit properly? Yes. Did I charge it for the recommended 16 hours before first use? Yes. Do I clean it every day? Yes. Yet it still has trouble with most things bigger than a grain of rice (think toddler mealtime mess).
The good news:
It sucks up liquids very well, no problem there. In fact, it does a much better job than our previous vacuum. And when you use the dry vacuum attachments it does a very good job. Cleans keyboards and dashboards very well. Do keep in mind the attachments have a very small inlet, so even though it tends to vacuum better with these attachments, it won't vacuum bigger piece.
It is not a total loss. I still use it often, but I do think that there are better hand vacuums out there. That said, they'll probably cost more.

Most convenient hand held vacuum cleaner in the world. Easy to install and charge. There is a wall-mountable bracket for you to hang it onto the wall in the garage, or wine cellar, so that all you have to do is return the cleaner to it after use. There is a slot behind/below, which hides the charging cable. So your cleaner is always charged and ready to go. The only thing I would ask Bosch is give me is some more nozzles or attachments, for various uses.

R649 for a product with very poor suction strength, however its handy for small spaces.

For the price i expected this vacuum to have better suction and more power. Disappointed in product especially because there are cheaper ones that probably work better.

Not powerful enough. I bought this to replace a 7.2v Black & Decker handheld vacuum cleaner, which I have used for the last 5 years. It gave me good service, but the battery now only last a few minutes, and it was time for it to be replaced.
So I bought this Bosch machine, thinking that Bosch is a good quality brand, and a 14.4v machine would be more powerful. However, after using it a few times, I packed it up and returned it to Takealot, and got a refund. The Bosch was just too weak, even weaker than my older 7.2v Black & Decker machine. It would struggle to pick up dirt, especially if the tank was a bit full. The inlet is also quite small, which meant that small pieces of paper or leaves would get stuck in it, reducing the suction power even more. It also meant that it couldn't pick slightly bigger pieces of dirt.
I was quite disappointed to return it. The machine looks and feels strong and sturdy, and looks nice too. Neverthless, thanks to Takealot for refunding me. I am now looking for something else to buy..

Useless. Poor sucking power, get clogged quickly.
Paul, South Africa. 15 February 2016
Really not a good buy! Very disappointed with the suction power. I am returning this product today. Also thought the 14.4 Watt would be stronger but a friend has a 7.2 watt that has much more suction power than this model and at less than half the price. Hope Take-a-lot has my friend's model in stock!

Great little machine. Has good suction

Light, easy to use around the house, rechargeable, powerful motor.
Andrew, South Africa. 1 November 2016
Works well, for all the people struggling with suction, ensure you clean the vacuum cleaner properly, and hold it at the correct angle to the ground. Ensure all seals are clean and properly seal to the body to create a good vacuum. The unit works, might just be a user problem with the above users. . .
Ross, South Africa. 5 November 2016
This product would suck less if it sucked more. It is terribly underpowered and terrible at even picking up clumps of dust under couches etc.
haajirah, South Africa. 17 November 2016
I'm happy with it, picks up small dirt and great for those teeny jobs that doesn't really need a thorough vacuum. Efficient in doing a quick car vacuum too
Dallas, South Africa. 23 November 2016
Not great, wouldn't recommend. Suction isn't good and doesn't end up doing the job.
Iain, South Africa. 7 December 2016
Not really a good handheld vacuum cleaner...has hardly any suction power to really clean up tough dirt imbedded in carpeting...I bought it to clean my car...now looking back...should've just used good ol carpet brush.
kate, South Africa. 8 December 2016
Really not strong enough, nor are the nozzles wide enough, it can only suck up the small crumbs, can't even suck up a dead fly.
