Bissell 1985 is powered using 22V lithium ion battery, which provides up to 14-15 minutes of operation. Unit doesn't have variable suction control - it operates all the time at full power.
Fully discharged battery can be recharged in 4-5 hours and during charging, the battery can be connected to the unit, but it doesn't have to - great for people requiring flexible charging and storing of the unit.
The main cleaning tool is rotating brush roll, which is suitable for cleaning various types of dirt, including human and pet hair from carpets and rugs, upholstery, stairs, cars, boats etc.
Other cleaning tools and attachments include:
- Crevice tool - designed for cleaning tight and narrow spaces, along the edges, in the corners and similar.
- Dusting brush - it comes with soft bristles that agitate the dust and other dirt, which then get vacuumed by the air flow into the vacuum cleaner.
- Extension wand with duster - it enables cleaning from the floor to the ceiling (almost) and helps reaching and cleaning elevated surfaces. Extension wand is too short to consider the unit stick/upright vacuum when extension wand is in use.
- Built-in extension hose - extension hose is flexible, helping with cleaning awkward and hard to reach places.
Also, to help cleaning in low light conditions, Bissell 1985 comes with two LED lights. These lights help spot the dirt and help avoid vacuuming in unwanted items, like smaller toys, socks etc.
Bissell 1985 is ergonomically designed and easy to use. It weighs just under 4 pounds (1.81 kg) - it is not the lightest cordless vacuum cleaner on the market, but this is more than justified by its features, suction, battery capacity etc.
Dirt cup is transparent, enabling the user to see type and amount of the dirt. Dirt cup capacity is 0.4 liters and could be perhaps larger, but it is OK for emergency and quick cleanups at home, car, boat, garage and similar.
Dirt cup is easy to empty and if required, to clean.
Note: Bissell 1985 has battery charge level indicator, but it doesn't have air flow or clean filter sensor.
Although air filtration is not HEPA grade, it is good. Two stage air filtration is based on cyclonic action and mechanical filter.
Cyclonic action keeps the dirt away from the filter, but when the dirt cup gets almost full, unit loses suction.
Mechanical filter is washable using warm water, with no detergent of any kind. Before returning the filter into the unit, be sure that the filter is fully dry.
Operating the unit with wet filter or with no filter at all, can damage the motor.
To get accustomed to the unit, it is highly recommended to read the manual before the first use.
Bissell 1985 comes with 2-year limited warranty.
Long story short - Bissell 1985 has very good suction for cordless unit and 14-15 minutes of operating time at full power. During these 15 minutes, it can clean rather large area - that is plenty of carpeted stairs, sofas, seats etc. With all available cleaning tools, it can clean almost every surface imaginable at home.
It doesn't come with the docking or charging station - after vacuuming store it on the flat surface and plug in the charging cable manually.
