So my mom and sister are currently on vacation in Japan for 3 weeks, which is my mom's home country.

Earlier this afternoon, in Japan time, they went to a Japanese Costco and spotted this Shark EVOPOWER W10 handheld vacuum cleaner. I'm surprised at how compact is is compared to American cleaners.

Is anybody familiar with this machine, or just Japanese vacuum cleaners in general? Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Although I am half-Japanese, the culture of Japan is somewhat foreign to me.

Below is a pic that my sister sent me of the vacuum.

I remember ibaisaic doing a monthly vacuum test with a robot of some sort and that hand vacuum at some point last summer. Have a look! It looked and worked pretty cool, I think the size of the bin is it's main drawback.

Consumer Reports has now rated this Shark Ion as the top performing handvac in their rankings.

Looks like a wimpy little thing. There's no way they can cram a powerful motor and good battery into something that small. Didn't they also have something like this that went with their robot vacs for above floor cleaning? Anyways, I'll just stick to my Aerus Electrolux Little Lux II and Dirt Devil 103!

It has a digital motor which provides better suction than almost any other cordless handheld I have used, with the main exception being dysons. Plus the attachments are well designed to optimize performance.

It is really well optimized for ease of use and speed. The battery life is only about 10 minutes, but that is plenty for me. In the UK they have a version with an additional battery that charges simultaneously.

This is the same hand vac included with some of their robot vacs yes.

Run time too short.Looks like some sort of motorized brush tool rather than a vacuum.Will stick with more traditional types of hand vacs.

I saw one of these in the vacuum section of my local Kroger a few days ago. For the same price, you could have a brand new Aerus Electrolux Little Lux, which actually has great agitation and excellent airflow for a little handheld vac!
