After 17 years of almost daily use my dustbuster quit holding a charge. I had such a great experience with my old Black n'Decker I knew that I wanted the same brand in the latest model. Found it at the first store, bought it, used it every day for a week and then it stopped working. Completely dead, won't charge (even though the little red light comes on). Exchanged it, assuming I had just bought a lemon, and this one lasted 3 days before it too died. I am now searching for a quality dustbuster elsewhere.
