Bosch Athlet BCH61840GB Upright Vacuum Cleaner - Black

Ultimate performance, no cable! The BCH61840GB cordless compact vacuum from Bosch promises the same cleaning performance as a conventional cleaner. It powers through dust and dirt to give thorough cleaning results thanks to the efficient bagless technology and HighPower AllFloor brush to cover hard floors right through to fluffy carpets. You can clean without limitation thanks to its extremely flexible nozzle joint. There are 3 cleaning levels to choose from depending on the scale of the job. The battery takes just 6 hours to charge and you get an extra long run time of up to 40 minutes. It’s been designed for the ultimate comfort, weighing just 3kg with a soft grip handle. You get a generous 0.9 litre dust capacity which is really easy to empty when you need to.

Product Reviews

"Battery life questionable"

Pros: Easy to use, looks good, convenient

Cons: Expensive, poor battery life

"This little vacuum is capable of good results when used on full power. There are 3 settings, level one which gives the advertised battery life, and is absolutely useless, level 2 medium is OK on hard floors and gives around 20 mins running time, level 3 or turbo is very good indeed but the battery only lasts around 8 minutes. This is enough for a small property or a quick clean, but don't imagine this will replace your mains vacuum totally."

"Excellent product"

Pros: Easy to use, Good build quality, Quiet, looks good

Cons: no attachments, small collection capacity

"Was sceptical that this cleaner would perform as well as my current one. Was pleasantly surprised - very light weight and on setting 3 has great suction. Only has capacity to collect small amount of dust, however as I now use it each day, it doesn't fill up. Would recommend."

"Delighted with it!"

Pros: Easy to use, Good build quality, Quiet

Cons: none

"We couldn't be more pleased with this cleaner. Ideal for older people, because it's not too heavy, self-contained, and extremely portable. Cleans very well indeed; good that you don't need full power for most jobs, but if there's a bit of floor needing more cleaning effort, "turbo" setting deals with it. Small dirt container, but it doesn't matter, it's so easy to empty. Highly recommend it."

"Best hoover ever"

Pros: Value for money, Easy to use, Good build quality, Quiet, looks good

Cons: none

"The cordless hoover is light and easy to use.

It is much quieter than our last hoover.

As there is no cable i do not get tangled in the wire as i did with my last one. Also as i use a wheelchair and my husband is visually impaired it has helped him as there is no cable to trip over.

It is very easy to empty and maintain.

I do not miss having a pipe as the cleaner cleans to the edges and as it lays flat when hovering i do not need to move furniture, and it swivels so not too much mooving it about, which helps.

It charges quickly and i can clean the main areas in about 15 minutes, and the charge would allow me to do 2 or 3 full jobs between charges.

It has made the job of cleaning much easier and I would recommend this model especially to anyone who may have a disability or have trouble using a heavy cleaner."
