Hoover LINX Cordless Stick Vacuum Features
Hoover LINX BH50010 is cordless and bagless stick vacuum cleaner based on Hoover's WindTunnel Technology, providing better cleaning of the various surfaces.
Power is provided by interchangeable 18-volt Lithium Ion battery, providing fade-free power. Such battery enables vacuum cleaner to work at full power all the time.
Motorized power brush can be turned off and on with a flip of a switch for bare-floor cleaning. Motorized brush does excellent work for pet hair and other dirt on rugs and carpets, however, it requires additional power and slightly reduces operating time on a single battery charge. For easier cleaning of various surfaces, Hoover LINX cordless vacuum also comes with the auto height adjustment, making transitions from bare floors to and from low and medium pile carpets and rugs very easy.
Cleaning nozzle is 11 inch (28 cm) wide and combined with edge-cleaning bristles and low-profile base, it can cover rather large area and access and clean tight corners and areas. For example, it can reach around 8-9 inches (20-23 cm) under 3 inches (7 cm) of furniture.
Controls are directly on the handle for ease of use, including battery-fuel gauge, which is rather accurate and provide information about battery status and remaining battery life. Battery charger is Energy Star compliant and can charge fully discharge battery in around four hours. However, after each use, let the battery cool down, before charging it again. It will prolong the battery life. Charging a hot battery (or freezing cold) lithium battery in general, is not good for battery and since lithium batteries can catch fire, it can be rather dangerous.
Hoover LINX vacuum cleaner measures approximately 11x8x42 inches (28x20x107 cm) and is lightweight and easy to use to clean home regularly or in emergencies.
This unit comes with 2-year limited vacuum warranty and 2-year limited battery/charger warranty.
Some users claim that using this vacuum cleaner on stairs can be little bit odd since there is no stair handle (found on some stick vacuum cleaners). When climbing the stairs, this vacuum cleaner must be supported by second hand or can be even used as climbing aid.
Hoover LINX Cordless Stick Vacuum cleaner combines two important features:
- bagless design - there is no need to continually buy replacements. Great improvement over many similar stick vacuum cleaners is that the dust bin can be cleaned without touching dirt with fingers or anything, even when there are pets in the house and pet hair is main content of the dirt in the dust bin.
- cordless feature - you can travel from room to room with no worries about cord length or outlets. And since single battery charge can provide 15-20 minutes of operation, with wide nozzle and motorized brush, it can really clean larger area. It can be even used as main vacuum cleaner in smaller homes.
Hoover LINX Cordless Stick Vacuum Cleaner Replacement Battery
The Lithium Ion battery included allows you to monitor your charge while constantly delivering full power with fade-free technology. The included battery charger features a blue LED indicator strip so you can monitor the charging process, which is usually fully complete in less than four hours.
After charging, battery should be taken out of charger and kept in the vacuum cleaner - battery will not lose it's charge while in vacuum cleaner, like older NiCd or similar batteries.
Battery comes with two year warranty and recharges rather quickly. If you often clean larger areas, maybe you should consider purchasing second battery - they get charged in just 3-4 hours, but it can come handy.
These are modern batteries, free from heavy metals, they maintain constant power during use and can be charged many times (literally hundreds of times) without or just a slight reduction in run-time.
They are made for use with Hoover Platinum Collection LINX vacuums, so if you have similar models of cordless vacuum cleaners from Hoover, their batteries are interchangeable - please, read the labels on batteries.
