    Horrible product

    I bought this to replace my old hand held Dirt Devil, and what a mistake that was. I've used the product twice. The suction is horrible, it doesn't hold a charge, in fact, it doesn't charge. It's been plugged in for 24 hours and it still hasn't charged. Luckily, I purchased the 2-year geek squad warranty on this one! It's going back. If they replace it, the new one better work.

      Hi GinaMD! Surely your Gator should be picking up and holding its charge after two uses. We have a few tips to maximize the suction power and boost up the run time.

      To ensure the best air flow, please be sure to empty the contents from the dirt compartment regularly. Then, remove the filter out of the dirt canister and tap against the inside of a waste can. After doing this, the unit should pick up much better.

      For best battery and runtime performance, we strongly recommend that you reset the battery and charger.

      First, unplug the charger from the outlet. It must be unplugged for 1-2 minutes.
      Next, turn on the hand vac and let it run until it completely dies.
      Then, place the Gator back onto the charger and let it charge for a full 24 hours.
      After completing these steps, this should boost up the run time. If you have further questions, please don't hesitate to reach out to us at 1-800-321-1134. Hope this helps!

    Worthless Dont Waste your money

    Worked ok the first 5 months or so then the internal battery stopped charging and neither Dirt Devil or Best Buy would stand by the product and replace it. Very disappointed with Best Buy considering their customer service is usually top notch. meant to write this review several month ago but forgot, hopefully I save others from wasting money like I did

      Hi Scott! Oh no, your Gator Bagless Cordless Hand Vac should last longer than this. We want to help. It sounds like the charger may need to be reset. Please unplug the unit from the charger, then unplug the charger from the wall for 2 minutes. Once completed allow the unit to charge for a complete 24 hours. The unit should run between 12-15 minutes. If further assistance is needed feel free to give us a call at 1-800-321-1134 M-F from 8am-6pm EST. We're here for you! -Karissa, Dirt Devil Customer Care Dirtdevil

    Some of the reviews weren't great but to be honest I'm really pleased with this - the suction power is better than i expected and it does the job in terms of keeping the place clean without having to get out the vacuum.

    Not enough suction

    It's an ok vacuum, but for 18volts, I thought the suction wasn't good enough. I ended up returning and getting the Shark Pet Perfect II 18volt instead.

    Not the best for spot cleaning carpets but does an okay job with the scattered kitty litter my cat tracks out of her box.

    Dirt Devil Gator BD10175 Handheld Vacuum
    A good — but not great — cordless handvac, the Dirt Devil Gator BD10175 didn't provide as much bang for the buck as some of its more affordable counterparts. It removed all of the debris on bare floors, but did just an average jobFull Review
