Product Expert handheld vacuums

With the Bosch Move BHN1840L and its powerful 18-volt battery, you can vacuum up to 40 minutes in 1 go. That's useful for when you want to remove crumbs in the kitchen and clean dusty baseboards as well. With the crevice tool, you can also use this handheld vacuum to clean the car, because it allows you to reach between the seat cushions. In order to always ensure powerful suction, you have to empty the dust cup often. Also rinse the filter with running tap water every now and then. If the battery's empty, you can easily recharge the handheld vacuum with a charging cable. After this, the handheld vacuum is as good as new and ready for the next load of crumbs.

"The main thing is a battery life. Here it's 40min."

Yulia Z. | 31 December 2018 | In the version: Longer battery life

  • Pros:
    40 min of life (I didn't use it for 40 min yet, but glad to have this option)
  • Pros:
    comfortable to hold
  • Con:
    some other models have more accessories
  • Con:
    price (you can buy a big vacuum for this money)

So far it's good. I will update my comment (or post a new one) if any issues occur.

"It whistles!"

Rob | 22 June 2020 | In the version: Longer battery life

  • Pros:
    Long battery life
  • Pros:
    No charging stand
  • Con:
    It whistles!

I bought this because of the long battery life and low noise level given in the specification.
When I used it for the first time I found it had an annoying, and piercing, high pitched tone.
If you look at certain YouTube reviews you can, in fact, hear it whistling!
Other than that it’s a good vacuum.
So, if you are paying more for a quiet unit, then it is not a wise choice.

"Nice but price-quality ratio is not the best."

Pedro Gomez | 25 November 2019 | In the version: Longer battery life

  • Pros:
    Long battery life
  • Con:
    Would be better if more accesories came in the box
  • Con:
    Too loud for my taste

Overall, it is a nice product but for this price, I would like to have all the accesories.
