How about a cordless vacuum? Would live to add that to my leaf and snow blower family!

Hopefully they will have one soon! Great equipment and a vacuum would be a great addition. Just do it!

Would love a cordless vacuum to use on my vehicles. If I want powerful suction I have to drag out my corded vacuum along with a extension cord.

Frank, would think it would be both bulky and heavy as an auto vac. I use a Black and Decker cordless Lithium ion rechargable that is perfect. It is available at Costco now.

I would particularly like an Ego wet-dry shop-vac for my garage.

Cheryl, good luck with that; the EGO battery weight. Even the 2.0 Ah one is too heavy and bulky for such an application. Their selling point is that all batteries are basically interchangeable amongst their tools. Now, a wet/dry vac on casters is a real potential. It's inconvenient to use mine we hen there isn't an outlet close by. Then again, there's the EGO Nexus inverter aleady available.

An upright style vacuum that carries the weight on the floor end would be a great form factor for an indoor Ego vac. I agree a stick vac (Dyson) style would be heavy with the Ego battery.

Ego shop vac would be incredible! For cordless to make the most sense I think it should be portable like the Rigid Pro Pack, which I own and love:

I think Blue Angel and I are looking for 2 different types of vacuums. I am definitely looking for a traditional upright indoor vacuum. Yes the stick style wouldn't work with the Ego battery due to the size and weight.

This is what I want for inside, just powered by Ego:

The shop vac would be a bonus for the garage. ;-)

Why buy another shop vac when you can get the EHO Nexus Inverter?

Because the Ego Nexus probably won't power most vacuums
To big of a power draw

Yep, 150W max on the Nexus.

Cheryl, sorry I mistook your wish for one of those portable handhelds. I understand the upright without cords would be so much more convenient.

Our cleaning lady has often said that our (bagged and corded) Miele is the best vacuum cleaner she has used. She detests all Dysons. I have a small Dyson (bagless and cordless) used to clear up after a coffee roasting session and to clean out cars, but it is no more than acceptable, in terms of cleaning performance or battery life. I was seduced and deluded by the concept of the Dyson. Now I would not even contemplate buying a Dyson, I utterly loathe the man and all that he stands for.
