My review and perspective on model: BD20035RED vacuum cleaner

This is the Dirt Devil Accucharge 15.6 Volt ENERGY STAR Cordless Bagless Stick Vac, BD20035RED Review please check the reviews page for a comparison of other vacuum cleaners.

I wouldn't touch one of these with a 50 foot stick vacuum (haha). No but seriously there are better products on the market. Dirt Devil lures people in with their flash, bright red vacuums, and ultra low prices, but they're never worth it in my mind. If you must have a stick vacuum go with the Electrolux EL1014A ErgoRapido. Stick vacuums in general are not a favorite of mine. If you want a stick vacuum my suggestion is to really just go with a mechanical non powered one. They're lighter and honestly do the same job just as well. I know that the batteries for these are heavy and that's where a lot of the weight comes from, but you can get an Oreck that does the job 100 times better, but it will cost you quite a bit more. With that said there are a few full size vacuum cleaners in the same price range. Cordless is nice, but the batteries will not last forever, and they are expensive to replace when they die. It's honestly more cost effective to purchase a whole new unit some times, which then makes an Oreck XL 2000 much more appealing since a lot of people report 6 months before the battery fries.

Traditional Ni-Cad Battery Charging Systems

When traditional Ni-Cad battery systems are kept plugged into the wall, energy (or current) is constantly being pumped into the unit. Even after the battery is fully charged, it still continues to supply it energy. This sends heat to the batteries and “cooks” them, damaging the battery cells. This damage to the batteries gradually decreases run time and also wastes energy.

AccuCharge™ Technology

The AccuCharge system constantly monitors the unit’s batteries and charging status. This “smart charger” recognizes when the unit is fully charged and then reduces power to the unit to a trickle charge for maintenance. This prevents power and heat from constantly being pumped into the batteries and “cooking” them. AccuCharge also uses an efficient switch mode charging adaptor, which combined with AccuCharge circuitry utilizes less energy. In a recent study, the use of Dirt Devil’s acclaimed AccuCharge technology showed to maintain charge more than twice as long as regular batter charging technology.

Since the AccuCharge Stick Vac can easily be set on its dock for charging, there is no need to worry about loose batteries or needing spares. ENERGY STAR certified AccuCharge technology will reduce electricity usage to only a trickle once your battery is fully charged. You can store your stick vac on the charger without having to worry about wasting energy, space, or money.

The BD20035RED is a Residential vacuum designed for use in the Residential environment. I have reviewed it accordingly, the price point of the BD20035RED is set for the Residential industry which should be taken into consideration when purchasing or thinking about purchasing this vacuum. Commercial vacuum cleaners may be built to last longer and endure more abuse, but are more expensive and may be lacking some of the luxuries (such as light weight, or low noise) that you are accustomed to. On the contrary Residential vacuums are made at lower price points, lower quality, but are often lighter and quieter to use. Please feel free to add your own perspective of the Dirt Devil Accucharge 15.6 Volt ENERGY STAR Cordless Bagless Stick Vac, BD20035RED Review.
