Used My Brookstone Gift Card on a Gtech AirRam

This is a follow-up post to "So Much For My Tunewriter" in which I was returning it for a Brookstone gift card.  When looking through Brookstone's catalog and online, I found this which I used my gift card on plus some of my Christmas money:

Our new Gtech AirRam Vacuum Cleaner
 It is cordless, only seven pounds, easy to empty, runs fairly quiet. 

Spunky is still checking it out and is pretty brave, but it wasn't on in this picture.  When the noise comes on, she runs away.

Spunky Doodle just gave it a close up inspection and seems to approve. 

It runs on a rechargeable battery and takes about 4 hours to fully charge; however, you can use it before it's fully charged if you want. It will run for about an hour on a full charge. We really like not having to worry about tripping over the cord.

Manny Boy couldn't care less, Spunky Doodle is the Inspector General around our house.

Easy to empty
It is easy to empty which is a good thing because it doesn't hold very much.  When I first tried it out, I just did our living room and our bedroom.  When I went to empty it to see how it worked, I was surprised that it was all full!  After all, Gerard does vacuum almost every day.  It makes two clumps which easily dump out when you turn it upside down.  The filters are inside the other part that comes off (Gerard is holding it in his left hand).  They need to be washed with soap and water and dried well once a month.

There is just a two-year warranty on this, but so far so good.  I like it because it's so little and light.  Our Tri-Star is clunky and pretty heavy.

What do you think of your vacuum cleaner?  Does anyone else have one of these and if so, do you like it?

I've not even seen one of these until today. Didn't know they existed. If it works for you then great. We have a big clunky one, but we also have 2300 square feet to vacuum.

Have a terrific day. Scritches to the babies. ☺

Oh, that looks good. We don't have any carpet, so I'd be curious on how it picks up on wood floors. Kitty litter is the big test around here.
The ONLY vacuum I like to use is my Oreck Ironman. We just bought another one because the parts started to wear out after a few years. I can replace them, but they aren't the same quality as what came with it originally.

I've not seen one of those, but all vacuum cleaners send me in a spin, they're scary!! :)

Wags to all
