Can confirm. You need this...
I've posted this a couple times on the sub, but I bought this handheld on a whim, and literally it's the best Amazon purchase I've ever made. It pulls her hair out of our comforter and upholstery, even when it's layered and super thick (aka when she blows her coat). The rubber pulls and mats the fur and it gets sucked in.
It holds a LOT of hair in the actual tank, and you just pop open the front, dump the hair, and wipe the filter. It is so easy.
It's not great for like, small messes (crumbs, cat litter, or dirt), it will leave some pieces behind in my experience --- but it works 100% on pet hair. I totally recommend it!
Very little chance of ESD on a vacuum. If would need to be very hot and very dry. Also most vacuums are plastic.
Your plushie and box on the top of the case are more harmful.
We vacuum PCs at work all the time, a little less messy than canned air.
BLACK+DECKER dustbuster Handheld Vacuum, Cordless, 16V (CHV1410L)
I purchased the 'pivot' black and decker off amazon about a year ago. It's good for cleaning the car, crumbs, quick pick ups. The battery lasts about 15 mins of straight use, but I only ever drain the battery when cleaning the car. I really like mine as a supplement to the big vacuum. It's designed well, the battery works, and it is a great tool for around the house. Also, cleaning the filter is easy, you just take it apart, wash it, and let it dry.
The one you have a link to is pretty much the same thing so I'm sure it's just as good, maybe slightly less effective if it doesn't have the brush attachment.

Ooooh, I highly recommend the Bissell Pet Hair Eraser Handheld Vacuum. I got it from Amazon for $30 and it's the BEST. I used to have a black cat that also shed like crazy but this vacuum got my furniture looking spotless and brand new again. The only downside is that it's small, which wasn't an issue since I don't have carpet and only used it on the furniture. I'm sure this brand probably carries larger models too, though.
Best thing I ever got... I use on my bed also and it's fantastic. With the different attachments, it's also handy for a quick clean up of kicked out litter from his tray.
Well this is awkward, I'm now the person who has opinions about handheld vacuums. I wanted to say to not buy the $29 vacuum linked below. I've had that exact model and it's made of such cheap plastic that the parts holding it together just broke with very light use. It also has terrible suction compared to slightly more expensive models. I've replaced it with this https://www.amazon.com/BLACK-DECKER-Dustbuster-Cordless-CHV1410L/dp/B006LXOJC0/ref=mp_s_a_1_4?dchild=1&keywords=mini+vacuum&qid=1625819801&sprefix=mini+va&sr=8-4 and while it's not super powerful it's still loads better than the original one.
A dog would be helpful, for sure. We bought this dust buster and it lasted roughly 6 years of constant use, even after some of the messiest meals. Just make sure you clean the filter. We just replaced it about 6 months ago. Our girls are now 7.
It honestly depends on your personal preference. If I had the choice, I would go with the former. I like the clean and low-maintenance bagged setup of it along with the better cleaning performance, but I know a lot of people like the versatility of the CrossOver with how it converts into a canister. Both are good options, though.
I apologize for not understanding your situation with cleaning your car, but that does make sense. I just figured that your apartment complex would have outlets near the lot. I am not as knowledgable on car vacuums and dust-buster type machines, but I have a friend who got this thing and he said it does the job. On top of that, it's super cheap.
Do not forget a fresh shower curtain, toilet brush/plungers, and baking soda boxes for the fridge. These are my moving must-haves and must-dos!
As for an Amazon item, I could not live without my dust buster.
If you need to cover a larger section of floor, Amazon also sells gym style floor tiles. They're basically the same as the kid ones but a little thicker and without any pattern. They're usually cheaper too.
I also recommend that people add a small hand vac to their registries. I have this one and with a toddler it gets used several times a day (by both of us!).
Your setup looks great; I would just add some lighting to your setup. You can add an LED strip behind the table to add some accent lighting, or even a “screen bar” to help light your workspace evenly. I use both on my setup and they help to reduce eye strain when I work in the evening.
I use the Philips Hue LED strip for my setup. For my screen bar, I use the one made by Baseus (https://www.amazon.com/dp/B085C8J6RM/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_i_99EuFb845ERZ8).
Between every few rides using a handvac that I take with me. I recommend the Black and Decker Pivot 20V. Owned it for a couple of years now and it has served me well.
If you do get a handvac, make sure it has decent voltage and suction. The $20 8V vacs are entirely worthless.
Hi, thank you very much for your AMA! I brought a Eureka handheld vaccuum cleaner, and have no idea how to clean the front brush and the bag. The brush is covered with hair, and the bag is full of fluff and dust (kind of like the lint you see in a dryer). How do I clean it?
I use a slightly more expensive model by the same company. I honestly wouldn't expect much from any handvac under $40.
It takes me like 30 secs as well, I don't do it after every rude, but when I get gas or stop for anything. I bought a cordless handheld that's pretty amazing: Bissell Pet Hair Eraser Lithium Ion Cordless Hand Vacuum, Purple https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07CB6RBSP?ref_=cm_sw_r_apan_dp_11CRPGN723SJMC9VD9RH
I was just gonna say this - I have no use for a full size sucky machine, so I opted for a small dust buster like unit. Does a fine job picking up pet hair and other small debris that collects in the corners of my rooms.
If I were to acquire a more capable model I'd probably go with something like Dyson's stick sucky machine because it's easier to store smaller sized models.
I got this one and it’s perfect for me. I can vacuum the entire car with one charge and it only takes like maybe an hour to charge again. I keep it in the back door cup holder for easy access
Smaller than a Dyson V7 are cordless wand vacuums like this Bissell AeroSlim and the Shark WandVac. They have very small bins and less power and run time than the Dyson V7. I have not used the Bissell or Shark wand vacuums but I would stick to the name brands if you got one.
That would be something to look for on amazon, I found one that might work pretty well for you
PLEASE HELP YOURSELF OUT.
I asked for and got this one many years ago for xmas. It's excellent and I'll have replaced within three days if it ever dies.
When I lived with other people I loved keeping my area clean, and while I'm personally not a fan of big vacuum cleaners if I can help it (not only because they're expensive, but most dorm rooms are small enough that you can sweep them up in a minute or two,) a dustbuster or similar handheld vacuum is always super nice for cleaning crumbs or dust bunnies or whatever.
I would say that it's entirely dependent on the personality of the gift receiver, though. It's up to you to decide if you think they would actually use it or not.
Also a random thing, but I always found myself needing screwdrivers of various types for different things. A good little screwdriver set with useful bits is worth its weight in gold for anyone, college student or not. Here's one that I got that's about 20 dollars and I've never needed anything else in my day to day life.
The only thing I can think of is the white bits are little cardboard fragments from the games you’re playing. This’ll l happen to me when I play a relatively new game on my my, and I’ll have to use a little hand vacuum to remove them. Relatedly, I can recommend this handheld for vacuuming neoprene mats (among other things…it’s not just for neoprene mats.
Mine is the BLACK+DECKER Dustbuster Handheld Vacuum, Cordless
This is the exact one I bought (link is canadian amazon):
I have no experience with these but Ive seen small "desk" vaccums for cleaning crumbs and dust from your keyboard that are battery operated and might fit in a pocket? Not sure if that would be convenient or if their small size would be a hassle with constant emptying though
Here's the vacuum I use! I like it because it comes apart easily and it's meant for bigger objects (like poop). You can also wash the filter and attachments in the sink. Good price too!
A vacuum like this. If you have a support contract for your laser printer/copier and something like this happens, call them. Don't touch it if you can help it and definitely do not get it wet.
