A new bs dad, I grew up to appreciate simple and effective cleaning products.
Budgeting is always an issue and you should prioritize how and where you spend your money.
And with a 15.6-volt AccuCharge in hand, the Dirt Devil allowed families to start having a hand holding decent cleaning power for less than $30. What do I like about this? 3 years warranty!
Dirt Devil claims that the BD10045 15.6V Wireless Portable Device will save you up to 70% on electricity costs because it has an AccuCharge system that reduces current to a trickle once it detects that the battery is full.
This feature is also found in the Dirt Devil wand vacuum. It is rated according to Energy Star and has a B rating from Good Housekeeping.
Features are pretty standard for a mobile device – it comes with a foldable crevice tool and a retractable brush tool.
What sets it apart is that since these tools can be stored with the vacuum itself, there is little chance of any of these tools getting misplaced.
- Relatively short charging time of 6 hours
- The charger will not fry the battery even when it is plugged in
- Storage space on the blank
- Good suction power especially on hard surfaces
- 3 years long warranty
- Uses less electricity
- You cannot replace the battery
- narrow opening
- Filters are not washable
- small cup for dirt
What to expect from the Dirt Devil AccuCharge 15.6V Hand Vacuum Cleaner?
The standout feature is obviously the AccuCharge system which basically allows you to leave this plugged in at all times without the risk of burning the batteries.
An Energy Star rating means this vacuum cleaner will help you save energy by up to 70%.
The flaw is that it only comes with a heavier nickel-cadmium battery that doesn’t hold its charge well.
Although Dirt Devil was still able to drop his weight down to just over 3 pounds.
For allergy sufferers, HEPA filters are available for this model, just in case you were wondering.
Here are the features
- It is powered by a 15.6-volt nickel-cadmium battery
- Quick turn crevice tool and retractable brush
- Charging time 6 hours
- Energy Star Compatible
- Features AccuCharge technology that reduces current to a small amount when it detects that the battery is full
- Comes with a wall-mountable charger (mounting screws included)
- Nozzle width 1.5 inch
- without bag
Attachments and accessories
This attachment comes with two attachments that can both be stored in the vacuum, so there is very little risk of them getting lost or worse.
It has a crevice tool that will really help in getting into tight crevices and extending access to clean areas above you like window edges.
There is also a retractable brush tool that you can use to clean the dust.
Dirt Devil states that it takes about 6 hours to fully charge, but since this has an AccuCharge system, you can leave it on the charger without worrying about overcharging the battery because this system cuts the current to a trickle once it detects the battery is full.
Unloading dirt is easy:
- Press the release button on the top of the vacuum cleaner to separate the dirt cup from the motor.
- Gently pull out the filter holder that holds the filter
- Empty the dirt cup into the trash
Dirt Devil states that the filters included in the package are not washable but that the washable filters can be purchased separately through Amazon.
Some consumers have washed and reused it without any problem but to prevent any warranty issues, but there are additional filters and they are replaced when needed.
the show length
The manufacturer doesn’t give any numbers for uptime but consumers report about 20 to 30 minutes.
Customer Service and Warranty
Customer service has been very good with consumers reporting that Dirt Devil meets a 3-year warranty and offers replacement vacuum cleaners if the original has defects. Comes with a 3-year limited warranty on parts and engine.
Executing floor cleaning
Good Housekeeping said this excelled at cleaning hard floors and Amazon consumers confirmed this.
They used this to capture loose debris on this surface such as dust, lint, crumbs, and pet hair. If your home has mostly hardwood floors, getting this hand fryer will make a lot of sense.
At best, this will do a decent job of picking up loose dirt on the carpet but because it doesn’t come with a pet hair attachment or a motorized brush, so don’t rely on this to remove any type of hair on that surface.
The suction will be strong enough to remove surface dirt but not deeply buried debris.
Pet hair removal
Cleaning pet hair from hard floors can be a problem on both hard floors and carpets due to the narrow opening and it does not have any motorized brush attachment. So don’t rely on this to clean pet hair.

Nearly 600 people have reviewed this product on Amazon and given it nearly 500 positive ratings!
Many people love the power these blanks bring to the table. The operating time is also a positive – it will last up to 30 minutes. You can leave this plugged in and not worry about running out of battery.
This means that it will have a better longer life and will spend less in the long run.
There were not many pet owners in the reviews but those with pets seemed to be pleased with the results.
This will be more appropriate on exposed floor surfaces.
Some of the issues include the wall-mounted charger that consumers say isn’t powerful enough. Someone said that his vacuum fell from him and broke.
Other complaints include the battery’s inability to hold a charge, flimsy bristles and a crevice tool that you need at an angle close to 90 degrees so it completely touches the surface being cleaned.
Reviews from other sites
Only 4 people left a review here and they were all positive. They loved the power and the AccuCharge system that doesn’t overcharge.
There were slight grips here on the brush tool that weren’t strong enough to push against the carpet.
Surprisingly only 3 people left a review here and it was a mixed bag. Someone gave it 5 stars saying it holds its charge well and the tools can be stored in the vacuum which was a big plus.
Another who gave a 3 star rating complained about the slit tool that had to be installed at a 60 degree angle to be able to push back and forth on the surface.
The last one to leave a review gave it 1 star because the vacuum fell from the wall mount charger to the floor and broke.
They gave this a B rating saying it had good power, great on hard floors, good on carpet, and had a good running time (although they didn’t mention how long it ran).
The downsides are the noise and the small nozzle.
Where can I buy this?
You can buy this handheld vacuum cleaner on Amazon for less than $35. And you’ll be eligible for free 2-day shipping if you join Prime.
Extended warranties are also available for up to 3 years if you want that extra peace of mind.
This vacuum cleaner would be a great budget option for people who don’t have any pets looking for a handheld device that does quick cleaning tasks around their homes.
It won’t have enough power to pick up stubborn dirt stuck to carpet but it will work well on hard floors.
Because the nozzle is in the slim location (1.5 inches wide), this is the perfect spot cleaner, even on stairs but complements a stick or vertical vacuum cleaner that won’t be able to clean edges or corners very well. The attachments can be stored in the housing itself, so there is very little risk of misplacing them.
One of the great things about this product is that you don’t risk burning the batteries even when you leave them on the charger and it will save you a lot of electricity bills (up to 70%).
It also comes with a 3-year warranty which is almost unheard of with cordless vacuums in this price range, so owners will have a full 3 years of peace of mind without worrying about buying another handheld.
