    Rechargeable battery for Hoover

    Rechargeable battery for Hoover 30th Nov 17 at 6:39 PM
    Sorry if this is in the wrong place.
    How long would a rechargeable battery in a vacuum cleaner be expected to last?
    The cleaner is a Hoover Freedom stick/handheld cleaner that was purchased only a year ago. Seems like I need to replace the battery pack and I can't believe how much they are.
    Is it normal to last only a year?

    It depends on the type of battery, how often it is used, and how it is charged.

    Have you always followed the instructions for charging?

    Yes, followed charging instructions.
    I wouldn't mind but it's more "occasional!" use such as stairs and quick Hoover round to tidy up.
    The cheapest battery I found is £54 - the cleaner only cost £110.

    Try draining the battery completely then recharging. Do that a few times.

    In normal use I would expect it to last much more than a year. I've got cordless diy power tools with batteries 10+ years old with batteries that aren't perfect but are still working.
    I would contact Hoover.

    Can't drain the battery as it is fully charged (blue light) and will work for 30 seconds then shows red that battery needs charging.
    If leave it a minute then it works and does the same.

    It wasn't the battery but the front roller that had hair around it. I had cleaned it previously but did it again and it now works.
