My husband was extremely skeptical when I brought this baby home. "keep the reciept." He told me. After a month, he just might be convinced. I have three kiddos 4 and under (no twins) and they can make messes like there is no tomorrow in which to mash, crunch or goo up the house. I mounted the charging unit over the table and held my breath for the looong initial charging time. This is a really powerful vacuum. It sucked up an entire box of cheerios my kids poured across the floor, along with spilled milk and leftover lasagna. That was just today! It completely cleaned my minivan, even removing crayon chunks of the super thick variety along with food wrappers and pretzels. Yes, full-sized pretzels. There is a lot of suction for this small vac, and so it does blow air out strongly. All I had to do was make sure my face wasn't within six inches of the job, and it wasn't a problem. As long as your arm is partially extended away from you, chances are you won't get any blowback. If you want a longer filter life, just rinse the filter with tap water and use a soft brush to remove stubborn particles. I left this out on the counter for over three days on the initial charge without any drop in power or signs of draining the battery. I haven't used the extensions much, as the regular nozzle works just fine for most of my projects, but I did detach them once, and my first attempt to put the attachments back on resulted in them falling off. So, I pushed really hard, figuring I was still under the warranty period, and it worked. I was rewarded with a loud click, and no further issues. Don't be afraid to rough it up a little. This vac can take it. My kiddos have already dropped it off the countertop and thrown it against a wall with no visible damage. An excellent buy, worth three times what it's selling for.
