Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lots of optionsSubmitted as part of a selected review panel. This only took a couple of minutes to set up from opening the box Really light. Various suction speed Being disabled I found it's light weight, flexibility and ease of emptying so easy. My son used it to clean out his car and it was easy to get into corners

Rated 5 out of 5 by from What a sucker!Submitted as part of a selected review panel. This is a great little vacuum cleaner, having multiple suction strengths useful for differing floor types or coverings, great mobility and very good battery life. It's easy to use particularly with the shoulder sling for staircases. Video can be seen here: https://youtu.be/KOZ6MoaYjeo

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Overall very goodSubmitted as part of a selected review panel. I think the Athlet BCH6RE8KGB is a great vacuum. I was a bit concerned that the suction may not be that great because it is cordless, however this was not the case at all. It has 3 settings - 1. for hard floor where the brush in the foot does not rotate which I thought worked really well and it was really quiet. 2. normal setting for any floor type and turbo setting for any floor type. I preferred the turbo setting for my carpet. The vacuum is nice and light so easy to carry and maneuver around, it also doesn't take up much space when storing it away in a cupboard. I love the fact that you can remove the roller brush from the foot as this often gets clogged up with hair. There is a groove in it so you can run a pair of scissors along it making it easy to remove all the hair and clean as necessary. The only thing I didn't like about the Athlet was changing the accessories, e.g. if you want to vacuum the stairs or the edges. It was quite fiddly to do and I thought the suction could have been a bit better but it still did the job. The shoulder strap did make it easier to vacuum the stairs without having to balance it somewhere. Overall I thought it was a great vacuum!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic suctionSubmitted as part of a selected review panel. I was really impressed with the suction power and portability of the vacuum. No need to be tripping over the cable or looking for the nearest plug point. The suction was excellent and left the carpets looking fresh. I would say that to get the most out of the charge the suction needs to be set low to middle and you still get excellent results. I like using it instead of the brush and bucket on our tiled floor in the kitchen if you spill crumbs it's so convenient. It's also great for the car with the suction of a mains power vac but less hassle.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lightweight powerhouse for the home and car - fab!Submitted as part of a selected review panel This is one of the next gen portable vacuum's on the market. Excellent and lightweight build makes it easy to use in the traditional upright mode. A great selection of tools aide those hard to get to spots such as back of furntiure or ceiling coving. Its powerful enough with the turbo head to give a good clean, suction is married with well designed brushbar to work harmoniously. An added bonus for me is I can take the unit down to the car and give it the once over due to the lightweight construction. Perfect lightweight yet tough little powerhouse!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Actually I give this 4.5 stars!Submitted as part of a selected review panel. This is my first experience of a cordless vacuum and so far it’s got a lot more pros than cons. It looks good in a bright shiny red finish, feels good ie light and easy to lift and is really quite, quite quiet. Initial charging took exactly the time stated in the manual. Incidentally, the manual is easier than many firms produce. The fold out, story board with numbered pictures, whose features are also described in an accompanying narrative in various languages makes getting to know your new toy a breeze. We have been using it for about 2 weeks and have tackled a number of finishes successfully. Car mats are often a challenge with their Velcro like pile but ours are now looking great again. Stairs are so easy with no trailing cord and it doesn’t topple over on you. The fact that the vacuum will go absolutely flat makes it easy to get into those hard to reach places under furniture. The strongest power setting required quite a lot of energy to push on carpet but the easier mid-range suction was quite adequate. It was equally at home and efficient on wood and stone surfaces. . The only aspect which receives my thumbs down is the accessory tools area. To use these you have to remove the brush head, replace with pipe connector and carry the cleaner with the provided shoulder strap. It’s all doable but quite a cumbersome process. We love the “grab, go and just whip quickly round” approach – house is much cleaner and our old corded, noisy cleaner has been sulking, unused for the duration!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely amazingSubmitted as part of a selected review panel. Wow is the first word i spoke when receiving this with having a husband and two kids and a dog its important to have a good hoover, this is the best i have had its great because it is cordless making it easy to use up the stairs and is lightweight, i like the fact it lasts a good while after charge, its cery easy to assemble as well as emptying, the instuction are very clear and you are able to follow them without difficulty, i love that you can use it kn any floor type as i find my previous one was no good on the lino flooring, i also prefer that this one has three different speeds 1/2/turbo and its not so loud when using it, my husband live the fact he using it to hoover the car as it comes with a long nossel and reaches them hard to get part. This is am amazing vacuum.
