    Default Dyson DC 16 handheld is showcased at Show!!

    It's a banner headline on the SBS site. I was expecting it to be a handheld radio but no - it's a vacuum cleaner!!

    Friends have got one of these and disappointed in that from full charge the battery life is about 5 minutes with a 4 hour recharge time - but to be fair to Dyson it does state the running/recharge times.

    Brilliant bit of PR - doesn't say what stand it's on (BigNick's pile of bricks springs to mind!)

    So will you be demo'ing these on the YBW stand????

    Dont buy one, we did and its useless. Five minutes if your lucky as well and no power whatsoever.

    Our close neighbours in the marina have one, it looks cool, & works well for 5 mins!!!

    We have a small cylinder vacuum from Tesco's (£14.99) 1400w with free bags! Damn good suction too!

    Its great and hoover up stuff when plugged into mains! Can buy lots of these for the cost of a Dyson!

    they have their very own stand at the boat show! just outside the Solent Hall I think when I was wondering around there today. Shame really as I know one or two marine companies could not get in this year.

    Well i cannot reccomend this highly enough for getting up leaves and dust and general crud out of the boat after leaving it overnight:

    Lightweight, easy to use, long-lasting battery, easy to empty(takes about two seconds intotal) - best thing I have ever bought off the selly-telly!
