Dyson Root Vacuum Battery Life Stinks

I bought my wife a Dyson Root vacuum last year and the battery on this handheld doesn’t last at all.  Is everyone else having this problem?  I called the Dyson company and told them that the battery runs down after about 3-6 minutes and stops operating and that told me that was “normal”.  I was blown away.  I would expect a lot more from Dyson.

I am not going to go into a full review here, but I will say that we love the vacuum otherwise.  Powerful, compact, and incredibly easy to empty/clean.  This is everything you would want in a handheld vacuum… except for the short life of the battery.  We have a good amount of hardwood and it barely makes it around the perimeter and under the kitchen cabinets.

Is the battery life really that poor?

Dyson Root Vacuum = short battery life

Is there anything that can be done?  I haven’t looked into a replacement battery for the root yet, but I will have to.  We are 1 year in and the performance has gotten worse.  It hardly holds a charge for 30 seconds.[/fusion_builder_column][/fusion_builder_row][/fusion_builder_container]
