Buying and maintaining a vehicle can be expensive. You'd think with the thousands of dollars we put in to purchasing or leasing a vehicle we would be more careful with keeping it clean, right? Wrong. Between kids, winter's slush and salt, pets and crumbs — keeping a clean car can seem like an impossible feat.

Luckily, there are handy tools like the Robit Handheld Cordless Vacuum that make it easy to clean up messes on the go. The portable vacuum is currently on sale for $70 (regular $85) on Amazon Canada, making now the perfect time to buy one to store in your car.

The details

Robit’s Cordless Vacuum is a lightweight, portable vacuum cleaner you can keep at home or in your vehicle that weighs less than 1.5 lbs.

The unit is designed with 90W brushless motor, 1400pa suction power to provide up to 30 minutes of cleaning time on a single charge. Robit’s unit features washable HEPA filters as well as a crevice tool and sofa brush to tackle hard to reach messes and keep your upholstery clean.

What people are saying

Robit’s Cordless Vacuum has earned an impressive 4.4-star rating based on more than 250 customer reviews. The handy device has been called “the Cadillac of portables” that “packs a punch” on small cleaning jobs.

“This vacuum has no problem with picking up dog hair, drums etc.,” one shopper wrote.

In addition to having “very strong” suction power, shoppers love that the vacuum is easy to clean, charge and use. It’s been called “an excellent vacuum” to keep in your car and pick up cereal and crumbs after kids and small enough to fit into seat cushions for cleaning.

Despite the positive reviews, some shoppers have said that they wish the battery life was longer than 30 minutes with a faster charging time. According to Robit, the vacuum takes approximately 3-4 hours to recharge using a USB port. Another thing to note is that the vacuum's storage isn't as large as a regular vacuum, so you may have to empty out the unit after every use.

Verdict

If you're on the lookout for a portable vacuum that can clean up small messes in a hurry, the Robit Cordless Vacuum might be for you. At less than 1.5 lbs, this lightweight vacuum that recharges using a USB cord is perfect for keeping in the car or in your home. However, this vacuum shouldn't replace your current unit for larger cleaning jobs - this should be used for small on the go messes instead of deep cleaning.
