Part of the RYOBI 18V ONE+ System of over 260 cordless tools
This is one of my favorite Ryobi tools. All those tools in the 10 piece kit I purchased, nail guns, stapler, etc. rarely get used (I only have so many home projects) but this one gets used multiple times every day. The fact that it's so light, clearly portable and just does it's job so well makes this one of the best products in this line - for me.
-Incredibly strong suction. I have a Dysons V8 and it's on par or equivalent to the suction power of the V8. There is NOTHING this hand vac hasn't been able to pick up. Pet hair can be picked up very easily on hardwood floors/surfaces but will take a few more passes on sofa cushions or carpeting (simply because you don't have that strong beater bar) but it will work.
-Great power consumption: Must run on very low power as the batteries last a long time. I routinely charge all the batteries once a week and there are still more than 1/2 of the bars on the device. Honestly once I left it uncharged for 3 weeks and it was still going strong.
-Very humane bug catcher: This may sound odd but I use this duster to capture bugs (flys and such) and release them outside. I leave one door open - w/no screen - so my neighbor's cat (whom has clearly adopted me) can go in and out of the home throughout the day. This causes said flying bugs to come into the home. It is very easy to capture the bugs and release them outside. What I like is that I can tell I am not hurting them because they get vacuumed up right into the chamber and none of their body limbs go through any motor parts. When I used to vacuum them up with my Dysons and release them outside, they always seemed dazed or could hardly move (but you could tell they were still alive) and were staggering around at best. When I release them outside w/this vacuum, they are already buzzing about and fly away immediately. In fact I have to hold the dust chamber away when taking out the filter so they don't fly into my face. I don't want to touch them, kill or squash them in my home so this is a perfect compromise.
-It is not as stable when setting down on a surface as many other devices. I've included some photos but the base is essentially 1.5 in width MAX - and narrows along the way. It has lots of ridges and causes the Ryobi to rock back and forth when setting down. It's fine if you've set it down on a firm, very wide surface but I once placed on a fairly wide ledge/not wide enough though, walked away, it fell and cracked a glass table top directly underneath. UGH! This $40 device will end up costing me over $1K to replace the glass. Of course this is my fault but it's a design flaw you want to be aware of when you're setting down
-could someone on the Ryobi team please make/include a little plastic adapter so I can use some other standard vacuum attachments - the ones w/the round holes - that I have all over the house from other vacuums. Right now, the only attachment I can use is the crevice tool and the shape is entirely proprietary to Ryobi. It would make this little vacuum so much more useful and would likely only cost pennies to manufacture.
-The one thing I like better about my Dysons is that it is so much easier to empty the contents. You press a button and boom, the contents are in your trash bin. With the Ryobi, you have to take out the paper/plastic filter every time and then dispense the contents. You'll always get some dust on your fingertips - but perhaps this is common to these kind of vacuums.
-I don't know why it took me so long to figure out but the larger batteries increase the suction power of this vacuum. It makes the vacuum a little bit heavier, a little less well balanced but may be worth it.

Has good suction power and is easy to clean. The brush attachment is useful getting the lint out of the crevices from the dryer screen.

Fine for cordless, but add a coffee filter so it doesnt clog quickly
I bought this because i have other compatible ryobi products. I used this for saw dust and it clogged in 5 minutes! I added a large coffee filter and a rubber band to the screen prefilter and it filled the dust chamber full without clogging and didnt reduce pressure sognificsntly. Hopefully, someone at ryobi will change their design.

Home office little green vac
Well I’ve had this little green vac for my home office for a month. And I’ve got to say, anytime I drop a snack crumb, I don’t hesitate to use this vac. Don’t really have any use for it in my shop to be quite honest, but what the heck it’s a Ryobi, it’s green, is 30 bucks. So don’t be a fool and buy the tool Hope you like the review. Hit that like button Hope it helps you to make a neater decision.

I have had a number of wall mount, rechargeable hand held vacuums before but this one exceeds them all! A big plus is that I have Ryobi tools so I have the batteries for it, and it's a simple task to change batteries if need be. Other types would always loss power over time or slow down with use, but not my Ryobi Vacuum. The mounting slot on the back makes for easy hanging with just one screw. I would highly recommend this item!

Crevice Tool Keeps Falling Off -- FIX Identified
The vacuum seems to work well and meets my expectations.
The only obvious issue is that the little crevice tool attachment, when left in its storage position (when not being used on the suction end of the vacuum), tends to fall off of its storage location. The storage clip does not hold it on well at all.
The "fix" I came up with is to use a rubber band to help keep it from falling off. Picture attached.

Great little picker upper. Use it all the time around our mobile home. I've had the old model of this for ages, before the li-ion batteries came out. Saw the new one at Home Depot the other day and picked it up.

Great vacuum, this is the only vacuum that I have (and I have several) that will clean my entry rugs and get all of the grass and debris out of them. I really like it. I can take it on my Pontoon boat and pick up dry messes with it to keep my boat clean.
