    I was specifically looking for a small cordless vacuum that I could use for my car. After researching various brands at various price points I settled for the Dyson V7. The Dyson V7 battery last longer than the V6 and the V7 is considerably cheaper than the V8 (in terms of battery life) so i felt the V7 was the best option. On standard vacuum mode I'd rate a 3. The suction isn't great and it seems to leave behind debris which you have to make multiple passes on a battery that last 30 minutes MAX. I feel like Dyson knew they couldn't market a 6-7 minute battery on its own so they added a standard mode to market 30 minutes. With that said, the turbo mode i'd rate a 5. It's FANTASTIC and cleans second to none! The only downside is the 6-7 minute MAX battery life. So id have to rate the overall rsting to a 4. If Dyson offered removable battery packs this would be a solid 5. Their R&D team dropped the ball imo. If you're looking for a small vacuum to use around the house or for your car this is it (As long as you're only cleaning out one or two cars).

    I initially bought this for my room in my apartment...I know it says car & boat on the box, but it works GREAT for bedrooms as well. It has several attachments which all come in handy for different messes and spills. It uses 2 speeds: one for light debris like dust and then the heavier suction power for heavier jobs, like picking up chunks of things..,mind you, the bay where the debris goes is limited, so keep that in mind when you’re picking up the heavier messes. Get a Dyson vacuum cleaner for that. ;) The only thing I have a complaint about is how long the charge lasts when it isn’t plugged in. Maybe it’s to keep the motor from running hot? Or maybe Dyson is trying to tell me to pace myself? Who knows...either way, maybe another half hour or so on the charge and I’d be 100% satisfied. I highly recommend this product and would definitely buy it again. Buying it on sale was a no brainer for me. It’s well worth the price.

    It comes with different attachments depending on where the cracker crumbs are , you’ll be able to attachments to really get down in there It comes with a car charger too which is nice. It makes noise because it’s a vacuum it’s what they do; however, this one is quieter than ones I’ve used before. which is ++++ You sorta hold it like a gun, like from a futuristic society, it has some weight (not bulky , solid) to it because it is a vacumn good ones with good machines will have some weight My only thing is I wish it came with a bag to put all the attachments into or one that held the entire vac with accessories. I am glad purchased at a sale price because the Dyson brand tends to run higher in cost . I think it’s better to spend more to get better quality and use I’ve gone through several cheaper ones that didn’t work properly or wasn’t strong enough , no attachments etc..

    Box says 15 minutes of run time on max suction....HUGE LIE! You get maybe 5 if you are lucky and if you set it on low power it won’t suck anything up, period. I would love to give this thing zero stars because it was expensive as heck and isn’t worth a fraction of it. No way you are sweeping out a car with one charge and it won’t run while plugged in which is another terrible thing about it. If you must have a handheld get something with a cord. Bought it as a gift for my wife on mother’s day because that is what she wanted, now we are past the return time frame and stuck with an over priced door stop!

      Hello Derrick, this is Kelly with Dyson. The Dyson V7 Car + Boat features two suction modes, MAX and regular power. While regular power is suitable for most household messes, you may find that some debris is more stubborn to pick up and does require MAX power mode. While in MAX power, your unit will receive a boost of power, making suction more powerful. When fully charged, you can expect run time from 7-30 minutes, depending on which suction mode and tools you are using. 

      The Dyson V7 Car + Boat also features our latest hygienic dirt ejector, designed to drive out trapped dust and debris in one action - so you never need to touch it. We would value the opportunity to ensure that your unit is performing as intended as we are committed to customer satisfaction. Please do not hesitate to reach out to askdysonUS@dyson.com. We are keen on providing support.

    We tried other cordless vacuums before buying this one but after only days the other vacuums were getting nasty. After a month this one is as good as new all of the seals are perfect and it seems like it'll last at least a few years. I'm impressed with the fact that no matter how dusty your service is the filter doesn't spit out bad air. The only downside is that you do have to get close to the ground if you're using this at home but we have a congested space to vacuum, so this works perfectly. Buy the car version for a few extra bucks you get a lot of attachments.

    I feel like i pretty much always have to run this on max to get sand/gravel out of my car's carpet. As a result I never have reached the quoted 27 mins runtime because thats with max switched off. That all said, this does work well on that setting and the included attachments all have a practical use, I switch between them all pretty much. I keep this vacuum in my car now in the trunk and it charges back there each time I use the car, so its basically always ready. If you use this vacuum often the battery life is adequate, but if you let it get too dirty, you'll likely run out of charge before you're done cleaning.

    I rent my car out for Turo and this vacuum blows my dirt devil out the water.. sucks it back up and destroys it. Lol it makes cleaning my car so freakin easy!! Not to mention using it for spots around the house. Awesome suction even though the noise level speaks differently (not really loud for the power) only weird thing is the filter. Motor is super sensitive (pulsating suction) if the filter isn’t completely dry after washing. Other than that this is by far the best portable vacuum. Heck.. it’s a dyson!

    One of my favorite Dyson products

    I am very excited about this vaccum to the point that it has become a hobby. I really enjoy using this product because with the correct tool, I can have excellent suction for each job. With cats the vacuums are in full use and the handheld does quick work. The motorized tool is wonderful and the extra tools of the car and boat model make it worth it to spend a little more. Vacuuming with Dyson is great with the right maintenance. I also love that Dyson has service centers. Other products don't!

    My husband purchased this vacuum for use in the car because he drives for Uber. The compact design doesn't take up much space in the trunk (a plus because he tries to keep that area as clutter free as possible to accommodate passenger's luggage and/or other bags) and because it is wireless, he can quickly spruce up any garbage or dirt in the back seat after dropping off a customer and resume his driving in a short amount of time.

    Dyson won't let you down, the design engineering is amazing as always and the suction power is good. the only downside is that on MAX mode the battery will only last...6 minutes :\ making it run 30 mins as advertised means using the 'normal' mode which is less powerful and takes longer to get the job done. 4 stars only due to the battery run time.

    I've always seen Dyson as a great brand, but seriously, 6 minutes, I did not even get to clean the passenger side, I expected more from the super vacuum cleaner, as for cleaning it's great but the battery is the worst I've seen, You can not even use it with the car adapter, this would have saved it since at least that way you could clean the whole car.

    Works great - just pricey

    The vac works great in my car, on my patio, etc. I like having the choice of a longer-lasting regular suction or a short-lived super suction (which I seldom need to use). Love all the attachments and the fact that I can keep it plugged in as it rides in my truck, thus assuring it's always ready for use. Love the design for emptying the dirt. My only complaint is that it's really pricey for what it is.

    I have not yet used it in the car or on a boat but for household clean-up it exactly what I wanted. I've used it for about 20 short clean-ups in the past couple of months and have not needed to recharge it yet. It is easy to clean, small enough to store in a cabinet and has powerful suction. I especially like the design and color of this model.

    After researching options for a handheld (cordless preferred) device to clean the interior of my car, I was pleased to discover the Dyson V7 had everything I wanted and more! It’s powerful, convenient and versatile. I’m extremely satisfied with this purchase and I definitely recommend this item to others as well.

    I'm a fan of Dyson products, and this is no exception. The battery charges quickly (though note, the life is not super long) and cleaning out the unit is very very easy. Minor complaints: short battery life and you will always use this on Max Power. Regular mode just doesn't have enough suction.

    Needs 3 hours of charging for 30 min of usage

    At first I loved the idea of this vacuum till it ran out of battery within 30 min and it ran out of charge more quickly when I used the extra suction power to vacuum. The design is great and all but for the amount of time it wastes to charge it, its pretty useless to spend so much money on.

    Bought it for my Tesla so I can keep it clean. Comes with a variety of attachments that make it super easy to get all the nooks as well as clean the carpets. Love that it can charge from the car itself too, but I mostly charge at home when I empty it.

    My experience with other Dyson products has been excellent, but this one doesn't really meet my expectations. The suction isn't nearly as strong as I expected. I do like the car charger since I bought this to keep in my car. Also, several useful attachments were included.

      HI there, this is Krystal with Dyson. Thank you for taking the time to leave a review on the Dyson V7 Car + Boat. I am pleased to hear you are satisfied with the attachments. As for the suction, this handheld vacuum provides enough suction for basic level cleaning and even more suction when switched to MAX mode for those tougher jobs.

      We would value the opportunity to learn more about your experience. Feel free to contact us at askdysonUS@dyson.com and we will be happy to help.
