Looks and works very much like more expensive models, but costs much less. It comes with a lithium-ion rechargeable battery. It came with a charge but plugged it in to completely charge it. Once charged, I used to to vacuum carpeted and non-carpeted floors. Works great. It even pulled debris deep in the carpet. I'm including some photos that show the vacuum separated, assembled in the floor and hand-held mode. Also, the attachment for the hand-held mode has two positions: brush and crevice tool, which switches by depressing the release on the brush and pulling backward. It also comes with a wall storage hanger that fits all of the pieces. Lastly, it has a HEPA filter already in the vacuum but comes with a replacement filter in the box. What is nice is that it comes with a cleaning brush for both the filter and the brush. Overall, a great product.
