    Bosch Athlet Ultimate Cordless Handstick Vacuum Cleaner is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 16.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Super powerful This is a little ripper vacuum cleaner, a pleasure to use in standard upright position. Sucks like crazy on carpets and hard floors. I have 50/50 hard/carpet so this unit accommodates both. Hand held attachments leave a little to be desired if using to clean inside the car. It just needs a smaller head or brush to work around awkward contours for the car. A tube extension for hand held hose would be good for doing the skirting boards again a brush would be handy. Besides that i love it. Plenty of battery power.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not bad but not great I bought this the other week on a recommendation from a work colleague who raved about how much she loved it, but I wish I had tried it before I bought it. It does the job and has a good battery life compared to other cordless vaccums but I found it very heavy to push when using it to clean floors, and not very comfortable to carry when using the straps/attachments. Granted I'm not very strong so it might be just me, but I think a handstick vacuum should be lightweight to suit different people. Don't usually write product reviews but I thought I should give a heads up to those who aren't strong like me :)

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Plenty of guts! I bought this a week ago and wow! What a difference a week makes.....I now cannot wait to do the vacuuming! My old plug in vacuum was SO heavy and I got a sore back lugging it around. We tried other handheld vacs but they never quite got all the dust, and the battery life left a lot to be desired. We always went back to the heavy old plug in. With this, I get the best of both worlds. Plenty of battery life and cannot believe how much dust it sucks up! You need to empty the dust from it reguarly but very easy to do. Very happy with this purchase

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from At last a battery powered vacuum with plenty of go We have dogs and its difficult to remove their hair from door mats. Its a daily job so the easier the better. We tried other battery powered vacuums but they failed to do the job, they did not have the grunt, you would go over a mat again and again without fully cleaning it. To add to frustration they would also run out of power trying. So it was back to the corded vacuum. With this unit its a breeze it takes only one stroke to clean and we can finish the whole job quickly on a single charge.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Impressive cordless cleaning power After several months of useing the vacuum cleaner l am just as impressed now as l was from the first use, l clean the filters after every use with a 75mm paint brush and there has been no loss of vacuuming power, going from hard floor to carpet with out a problem and the battery has enough charge to handle a four bedroom house.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it. Firstly I would like to point out, to the people who don't get the difference, this is not a stick-vac. This is a cordless vacuum cleaner. There are distinct differences between the two. Stick-vacs are meant to be light duty machines for quick clean up on easy to vacuum surfaces like tiles and hardwood floors. They are usually much lighter with motor and dust collection bin up top and pipe conecting the floor tool down the bottom. They are easy/easier to handle due to that. You can vacuum carpets with them but don't expect much. Cordless vacuums like the Bosch Athlet Ultimate are lot close in ability to corded vaccum cleaners. Heavier but you can't get past that. You need big battery packs for big power and batteries are heavy. No way around that. Now personally I don't think they are too heavy and even my missus who is a small girl thinks they are just fine in that regard. I am only mentioning this for the people complaining about weight of this unit. Understand the difference between two designs and buy the correct one for your needs. Anyway back to the Athlet Ultimate. Suction is beyond what I expected. In fact much better. We have a German Shepherd that sheds 24/7 and this vac picks up the hair from the carpet even better than our Miele Cat & Dog (which we also like) corded vac. Incredible performance. The floor tool is also great. Picks up everything and the brush is easy to remove so I can clean out my wife's hair that gets tangled in it (unavoidable if you live with anyone with long hair). Dust bin is easy to remove and clean. Could be bigger but you it's decent size. The versatility of being able to use it with a hose is also great. Change to top and bottom section and you can throw it over your shoulder via the shoulder strap making vacuuming furniture or up high like cobwebs in the corners a breeze. Very versatile. Battery also lasts lot longer like this. The run time......not so sure about the "up to 75min run time" statement. Maybe on the lowest setting but not sure what would you be vacuuming on that low of a setting. In real world and at full power its closer to 25-30min at full power which is actually enough for us to do kitchen, large dining/lounge room area, hallway and two bedrooms. That is actually pretty good. So all in all its a great vacuum for those who want a powerful cordless vacuum but understand that it will be a bit heavier than a traditional stick-vac like the Dyson (which we previously had and were very underwhelmed with its peformance). This Bosch unit is night and day difference in terms of power. Even the wife said that vacuuming no longer feels like chore and takes about half the time. Worth every cent we paid.
