Works on carpets as well as hard floors. It is very lightweight and has a simple and effective design which allows it to get under and around furniture with ease.
With it’s wind tunnel technology, dirt and debris are easily taken care off without too much of a push and pull on the vacuum cleaner.
What is this wind tunnel technology, lithium-ion battery and multi-floor electronic brush roll ? All these will be explained below as we review this Hoover BH50020PC Linx Signature Cordless 18V Lithium Ion Stick Vacuum Cleaner.
The Hoover BH50020PC Linx Signature Cordless 18V Lithium-ion Stick Vacuum Cleaner is equipped with a 18v lithium-ion battery. This is about the most important feature of any cordless vacuum cleaner, because without the battery, the vacuum will not work. Using and maintaining the battery is of utmost importance if you want your vacuum cleaner to last for a long time.
This kind of battery allows you to charge and recharge for your vacuum use whenever you want. However, this type of battery should not be charged externally because it might explode. That is why built in with the battery and the charging system on the hoover vacuum cleaner, are some integrated charge regulating electronics to control the charging. This is what they call the smart charge battery charger. This technology re-powers your battery and indicate when the battery is fully charged. The battery guage also tells you how much battery power is left and when you need to recharge. This vacuum cleaner comes with it’s own charger.
The battery life may depend on how much you are using one feature of the Hoover BH50020PC Linx Signature Cordless 18V Lithium-ion Stick Vacuum Cleaner. That is the power brush. Using the vacuum with power brush will give about 20 minutes. Which means when you frequently do this, you likely to charge the battery more frequently thereby reducing the life cycle of the battery. The initial charge for the battery is between 2 to 3 hours.
One important tip from my research online is that these kinds of batteries don’t like near freezing temperatures . so don’t charge the battery in your garage during winter. You can do that inside the house where it is warmer.
Another tip is always recharge before the battery goes dead. Don’t ignore the battery low indicator.
