Dirt Devil HandiMate Handheld Vacuum Review

Dirt Devil HandiMate Handheld Vacuum Cleaner

This Dirt Devil HandiMate Handheld Vacuum Cleaner is a true budget option from Dirt Devil and while it isn’t going to work any magic on your floors and surfaces, it will happily pick up crumbs, spilt dry foods and loose hair. Quick and light, grabbing this from the cupboard to clean up a tiny mess saves so much time compared to battling with the large upright vacuum.

Key Points:

  • 6 volts
  • Run time: Up to 14 minutes
  • Weighs less than a kilogram
  • Dusting tool and crevice tool included
  • Charge time: 7 hours


The key to making the most of this compact handheld vacuum is to not expect too much from it. It’s main purpose is to save you time when it comes to crumbs and dry food spills as you can grab this and not have to use the main vacuum cleaner.

Not powerful enough to suck up embedded pet hair or other dirt, this is good for a quick clean up around the kitchen floor or the car seats. The dust disposal hatch can leave you with dusty hands, making it unsuitable for those with allergies and the charging lead is fragile and cheap. BUT; this is one of the cheapest cordless vacuums out there, and for minor spills it does work.

With a run time of up to 14 minutes (but around 10 in reality), you can keep this in you car for quick clean ups without having to take it out for recharge too often. It’s very light at under a kilogram and is easily manoeuvrable for young and old alike.
