Sucking up on the go

I’ve never felt satisfied with the suctioning power of any of the small rechargeable hand vacuums I’ve kept in my car trunk for quick clean-ups inside the car or at accommodations on the road. Dyson has come up with a powerful featherweight alternative that can morph from a little hand vacuum to a long-reach floor vacuum, thanks to interchangeable tools and extensions. The DC59 Animal Cordless Vacuum weighs less than 5 pounds, despite a super-charged V6 digital motor, 15 radial cyclones spinning in two parallel tiers to suck up like crazy. The ergonomic trigger grip releases instantly, so battery power is used only for cleaning. You get 26 minutes on a full charge. Bin emptying involves just the push of a button, without your ever having to dirty your hands. The DC59, with its shapely design and gunmetal grey and purple accents, looks cool and classy. It comes with a docking station for convenient storage and charging at a vacation getaway. This little sucker costs a bundle but works hard for the money.
