This is the 4th Spot Lifter I've had. I was hoping the Spot Lifter 2X would be better than the previous Spot Lifter, and it was slightly more powerful. The biggest problem is that the rechargeable battery burns out quickly and Bissell doesn't offer a replacement. It seems silly that I keep buying a new one every other year, but I really like the compact portable size. For the $200 ($50 X 4 units) I've spent on this rechargeable unit, I don't think it's very cost effective. There are some compact deep cleaners available that plug in, and I'm definitely going that route this time. They are bigger and take up more storage space, but hopefully, I will be able to complete a spot clean up without running out of charge half way through (15 minutes, yeah, right, I've never gotten more than 2 brand new) and hopefully it will last more than a year or two. I wouldn't recommend this product.
