Product Features AccuCharge Technology Energy Star Compliant Rotating Brush 15.6 Volts Cordless Bagless Design Easy Empty Dirt Cup Lightweight - Weighs Less than 6 Pounds Swivel Head Folding Handle Allergen Filtration Traditional Ni-Cad Battery Charging Systems When traditional Ni-Cad battery systems are kept plugged into the wall, energy (or current) is constantly being pumped into the unit. Even after the battery is fully charged, it still continues to supply it energy. This sends heat to the batteries and “cooks” them, damaging the battery cells. This damage to the batteries gradually decreases run time and also wastes energy. AccuCharge Technology The AccuCharge system constantly monitors the unit’s batteries and charging status. This “smart charger” recognizes when the unit is fully charged and then reduces power to the unit to a trickle charge for maintenance. This prevents power and heat from constantly being pumped into the batteries and “cooking” them. AccuCharge also uses an efficient switch mode charging adaptor, which combined with AccuCharge circuitry utilizes less energy. In a recent study, the use of Dirt Devil’s acclaimed AccuCharge technology showed to maintain charge more than twice as long as regular batter charging technology. Since the AccuCharge Stick Vac can easily be set on its dock for charging, there is no need to worry about loose batteries or needing spares. You can store your stick vac on the charger without having to worry about wasting energy, space, or money.
