The vacuum arrived in good condition, and it comes with a charger, a crevice tool, two brush tools, a warranty card, and instructions.



The instructions give a charge time of 4 hours.There is an important note about charging in the instructions. While it looks like the vacuum charges via a USB type B cable, it is a 13VDC output to the vacuum.Don't confuse this charger or socket with other USB devices. This photo shows the display after some use, at 94% charge remaining.



The controls are simple to use. There is an on/off switch for the vacuum and another for the LED lighting. The dust container is removable, and the front 'fish mouth' assembly also comes off.Removing the front section allowing quick emptying without disturbing the filter. The LED lights (one on each side) help a little and are a nice addition but don't provide as much light as a typical flashlight.



The vacuum is heavier than I expected, but in a good way.I expected a very lightweight tool, but this had some substance and felt well made. The sound level is typical for a handheld vacuum and while certainly not silent it is not objectionably loud.


My first test was under the kitchen cabinets, where I collected more dirt than expected.The dirt cup is easy to empty, with one quick latch to remove. The filter has a small tab inside making it easy to grab with a finger to remove. The filter collected dust well, with none passing through to the motor. At first, I was worried that the filter would be difficult to clean but the dust came off by tapping the filter on the edge of the sink.


My first attempt to wash the filter was to backflush water from the clean side to the dirty side which resulted in the filter holding water like a cup. This shows the filter passes air but not water to be suitable for wet/dry vacuum use. This photo is the inside of the filter, showing the tab for easy removal. Note how clean it is inside even after we used the vacuum to clean two vehicles.



The first real test was my truck. The truck had seen a full summer of outdoor activities since I last vacuumed it, with dirt, dust, stones, grass, etc. on the seat and on the floor.








I cleaned the entire front floor and seat. At the end, the display showed I had used about 10% of the battery charge. The vacuum got to all the areas I wanted to clean, with the crevice tool doing well along the door sills and the fold areas of the seats.Cleaning ability was surprisingly close to using my full-size Shop-Vac. I could tell the difference but the IdealSwan did better than I expected. While cleaning under the pedals I briefly wished for the smaller size of the Shop-Vac hose, but once I installed the crevice tool the IdealSwan fit just fine. After a few minutes I noticed the suction dropping off. I opened the dust cup to find this:




The vacuum pulled the expected grass and stones from the carpet, but also the loose fibers and dust. I tapped the filter a few times to knock off the dirt and went back to cleaning. The results speak for themselves:








Next we tested on our car. We had recently evicted the family of feral raccoons that had been living in the back seat.Not really, but it looked that way after a summer of exposure to children who like to eat on car trips.






My wife tried the vacuum for the car test. Still running on the initial charge, she made it almost through the entire car before the vacuum battery was depleted. This supports the 25-minute runtime claimed in the instructions.




No handheld vacuum will work miracles, but this one got all the loose dirt out of our cars.She felt the IdealSwan worked almost as well as her full-size vacuum with its hose and tools.


I then tried the vacuum on some heavier debris by cleaning up wood and metal chips from my drill press.No problems there, everything was sucked in immediately.




The final test was sucking up water. Again, the vacuum performed well, leaving only dampness on the kitchen counter. If the motor was running the water did not drip out of the vacuum. The flap in the fish mouth (closed in the photo) helps retain liquids. At the end of the test the fan side of the filter and the motor remained dry.





I am pleased with the IdealSwan's performance. It performs all the typical handheld vacuum jobs with ease and adds wet vacuuming capability as well. It is far more convenient than getting out the large vacuum for typical workshop or car quick cleanup tasks. We've already decided to keep it in the car on vacation road trips in case the raccoons come back.
