This model is the first Dustbuster I've had with lithium batteries. It seems lighter than my previous one but has similar suction power. One difference is that it abruptly shuts off when the battery gets low instead of slowly dying like my previous unit. It also does not have any charging LED to indicate when it is plugged in, but that is a minor quibble. It seems like a nice handheld vacuum for the price.
Really like this little vaccum, use it everyday , works well .
It's so convenient I should have purchased this a long time ago!!
Love this product. Battery time is great too.
