*I was given this item at no cost so that I could try it out and give my honest review, please know I was not paid to write a positive review...This is my honest opinion of the product, be it good or bad* The Kenmore 18V 2-in-1 has great suction power, easy to maneuver around and under furniture and is simple to clean; plus it has a bonus headlight! I am not a newbie to stick vacuums, this is actually my third. My first was the Shark Navigator Freestyle, that one only had about 45% suction power; I was constantly having to go back over the same area. Then there was the Electrolux 2-in-1 stick, I really enjoyed the small dust buster for using in the car however I found the battery did not last long. Now with the Kenmore 2-in-1, I would love to give it 5 out of 5 stars but I need more time with the machine to ensure the longevity of battery and durability of overall device. Long story short...the Kenmore Stick Vacuum is far superior over Shark and Electrolux brand stick vacuums.
The 18v lithium ion battery cannot be replaced. There are no serviceable parts within this vacuum. My battery died after 6 months and my only recourse is to toss it and buy another. The vacuum did a good job when it worked. We were happy with it. When I was a young boy, the USA made very good products for Kenmore. Greed appears to have taken over. I'll do without.
It worked fine until the battery wouldn’t hold a charge. $150 is a lot to pay for a vac that lasts for only a year. No replacements available.
I bought this on Saturday, January 19, 2019. Charged it up and used it on the 20th. Battery indicated full charge. It ran out of power in less than 5 minutes. Thinking I may not have charged it correctly, I plugged it in and again, charged for 24 hours. Battery indicator indicated a full charge. I turned it on and it lasted 3 minutes and died. Called Sears here and they said, we are closing you have to deal with it on the phone with Kenmore. A new unit... they took my money, now I am having problems getting back the money on a new vacuum. Do not buy this. I noticed other reviews stating battery problems!
I owned a similar vacuum previously and was so useful as we have lots of hardwood floors. Not only was this vac less expensive it is far stronger than our old one and battery last longer. Picks things up well on kitchen carpets too, transitions well. Love the little charging station and you can detach center piece to use as a hand vac. The canister hold quite a bit of dirt. So glad we bought this. Excellent value.
This 18V Kenmore 2-in-1 Stick Vac is amazing! Got it originally for my car, but have been able to do so much more with it. Glad I was able to get one before they completely discontinued it.
Just buy this vac, but battery last 5 min take an hour to charge just last 5 min seems to be god if the battery last a least 20 min how it's discribe
It doesn't wort the $110 dl
