The gadget also has a flexible hose pipe with a variable switch. The switch lets you adjust the airflow according to your needs. Two extension tubes are also included in the package. They extend your reach and help you clean far-off corners.
The vacuum cleaner has a useful Dust Bag Full indicator. It sends out a timely alert to notify you when it is time to empty the bag. The advantage of having the indicator is that it prevents the bag from overflowing and spilling its contents. It also enables the machine to maintain its suction force and operate at it optimum level.
To dispose waste, open the lid on top of the vacuum, ease out the dust bag, slide out the sliding clip, pour the contents into a garbage bin, reattach the clip, ease the dust bag back into its holder and close the lid. If the bag is too dirty, shake it vigorously to remove the dust. You can also rinse it in running water, but remember to use it only when it is fully dry.
The vacuum cleaner has Thermal Overload Cut Out to protect against overload, overheating and sudden spikes in current. It keeps the circuitry safe and the machine running for longer. The power cord is fully retractable. When you press the automatic power cord winder, the cord is pulled in and stored inside the machine. When pulling out the cord take care not to pull it beyond the yellow mark.
