On test… the Sakura car vacuum cleaner with the sole advantage that you can plug it into a 12V power supply to give your car a quick valet, so no extension lead from the house or across the pavement posing a potential health and safety hazard. The limitation of power is that suction will collect sand, crumbs and small stones that often get brought in by your feet although ingrained filth will need a full-sized vacuum to expel. The dust filter is easily cleaned, within a transparent, blue plastic container that’s easily unclipped to pour out dirt.
After one year’s use, we’ve found that the wire connection is breaking as you have to fiddle with the area where the cable connects to the vacuum to get it to work, although that may be due to winding of the cable after use that does more harm than good over time. A white attachment to access corners and crevasses, that slides into the vacuum body falls off too often under pressure so some redesign seems appropriate here. There are better car vacuums out there so advice is to spend a bit more on one and keep scrubbing!
