With the AEG HX6-27BM, you're getting a powerful handheld vacuum that you can use for a long time. The battery lasts for 27 minutes, so you can not only use this handheld vacuum for small cleaning jobs, but also for larger surfaces, such as the stairs, bookshelves, and the couch. It has a slide-out suction brush. This is useful, since you won't have to change attachments to reach tiny spaces. The slide-out suction brush lets you reach narrow spots, such as the baseboards, cutlery drawer, and between the couch cushions.
