    They are all useless, use the hose from a domestic cleaner

    The hand held ones would not pull the skin off a rice pudding.

    (please note that I have kept the post clean)

    Yup, what Malcolm said. I've had a few hand-held ones (both mains and rechargeable), and it's quicker to get the full-size vacuum out and use the hose.

    I believe the new Dyson Hand Held is quite good too.

    If Dyson make one it will suck well, but dont touch it or use it as it will break.

    I'm in charge of hoovering at home. That's a fairly sad thing. Sad to admit also I expect

    Hello

    Agree with others cordless type ones are pretty poor for your car...

    I use a cheap Argos Bagless cylinder type with a cable that wheels inside the unit. Its small, but being mains its 1200W so can pick up quite well.

    Only cost around £25 and having an outdoor weatherproof power its almost as easy to use as a cordless but at least IT works.. :)

    It got a good review from James May in yesterday's Telegraph Motoring Section, if that's anything to go by.

    I agree TV, they all are useless. The dyson is probably the best of a bad bunch, but like my one in the house bits keep snapping off!!

    Have you seen the dyson one though very bulky, doesn't look good for confined spaces - saw one somewhere when they first came out, at first I though it was a left over prop form Ghostbusters.
