The longest run time this has achieved is 7 minutes after doing the factory-instructed charge-discharge cycle several times. I'm disappointed that it doesn't produce the 17 to 19 minutes of run time indicated in the review. Not certain but I may still take it back because of the short run time plus the need to remove it from its charger base after 16 hours recharging. Instructions with the vacuum indicate it is fully charged after 6 hours so there is a discrepancy in the instructions between those on this website and those that came w/ the vacuum.

Long Hair Ruins This Vac
I've owned this vac for about 3 yrs. It worked superbly for about 2 of them. It recharges fairly quickly. This tiny thing had awesome suction; it DID pick up my cat's hairs very well; however, I have LONG hair and it caused the ruination of my little vac. After awhile, the brush part was useless, even though I cleaned it after almost every use. If you have hair that you're losing on a regular basis, I wouldn't recommend. If your hair is healthy, stays put and doesn't end up on the floor whenever you blink an eye, I highly recommend. This is one time that baldness is a definite plus. I would have liked a warning sign, too, whenever the battery was getting low.

Great suction, Poor charging system
Easy to Use
The major flaw with this vacuum is you have to unplug it after 16 hours every time you charge it, or you risk overcharging the battery. Who can remember to do that every time? No idea why they would put such a primitive charging system in this when most other appliances have built in overcharge protection. <br /><br />It really has excellent suction, and useful attachments, it's really an efficient vacuum. If you don't mind dealing with the antiquated charging system, it's a great vacuum.
