Hi Guys, today I’m reviewing the Hoover Linx Cordless Stick Vacuum Cleaner, BH50010. LINK TO Hoover Linx Cordless Stick Vacum: http://amzn.to/1OW2oOP It’s cordless and bagless. It weighs 7.3 pounds and the nozzle width is 11 inches.
It comes with an interchangeable 18 volt lithium battery and charger.
Battery life is approximately 20 minutes. There is a fuel gauge which tells you how much battery life is left. If there are 3 LEDs lit, there is more than 75% charge left. 2 LEDs lit means more than 50% left, 1 LED means more than 25% and 1 blinking LED means less than 25%. The on/off switch is located conveniently on the handle. The first setting is for hard floors and the second setting is the brushroll for vacuuming carpets. The dirt cup is clear so you can see it filling up. It’s easy to empty out since there is no bag to deal with.
When you first get the vacuum, place the battery in the charger until it is fully charged – should take 2 to 3 hours. The LED indicator will light and stay lit. To remove battery pull on the release lever while holding the base and pull out. Then put the battery in the vacuum. It’s best to put the battery in the vacuum after it’s charged, don’t leave it in the charger. To remove the battery, turn off vacuum and pull on the release lever to pull out battery. To remove the dirt cup, press the release button on top and pull away. Press empty button over your garbage to release the contents. Push the door closed until the latch clicks. To clean the filter, pull out the cap and filter. Clean it with a brush and rinse with cold water if necessary. Filter should be dried for 24 hours before replacing.
To clean out the baffle tube, press the bottom release button on the dirt cup. Turn the baffle tube counterclockwise until it stops. Pull out the tube and shake it over your garbage can to release any dirt. Place the tube into the dirt cup, align slots and twist clockwise till it locks.
Put your foot on the nozzle and tilt back to recline. Roll button forward to the first setting for hardwood floors or the second setting for brushroll On to use on carpet.
Fits under furniture and the handle reclines so you can get far under furniture if the space is taller than the dust cup. It has edge cleaning bristles which gets dirt close to walls and corners.
To store, the unit just stands straight up. It’s slim and doesn’t take up much space in your closet. I love the modern look and design of the Linx. It’s quiet compared to most vacuums. My favorite part is that it just glides across the floor, there’s very little effort I have to put in to use this vacuum. That also makes cleaning faster and less tedious. I’ll never look forward to vacuuming but with the Linx I don’t dread the chore. It’s really easy to use and sucks up everything on my floors.
