While packing and shopping for college, I needed a device that would effectively store well and keep my room floor extra clean and free of debris. Looking around, I spied the Dirt Devil Scorpion Hand Stik. Observing the model, it was a convenient size that could transform into a hand vacuum. It did not require any long cords or bags. I was sold. I purchased the vacuum for $40.00 and was on my way. The Dirt Devil Scorpion can be purchased at any Walmart, Target, Best Buy location and even can be found online.
Once the time came to use this in college, the Dirt Devil Scorpion Hand Stik was compact enough to fit almost anywhere, with a removal stick to allow for easy storage. With the removable stick, the entire vacuum has a length of approximately four feet; without the stick, the Dirt Devil Scorpion is about a foot and a half in length.The vacuum is also equipped with a rechargeable 9V battery cord that can plug into the wall for a couple of hours. Recharging the Dirt Devil is very important to allow for maximum performance; however it does take a long time. I struggled for a while to vacuum with low battery; there was barely any vacuum power to pick up the slightest dust particle. So much so that it was very frustrating to do anything with it. However, several hours of initial charging will guarantee a fully functional dirt vacuum.
Another great thing about the Dirt Devil is its dirt storage. There are no bags or messes. Just simply remove the container on the device and dump the remains in the trash. Done. It is very simple to clean and to reuse. Also, I love to clean hard-to-reach corners with my vacuum, and the Dirt Devil has an attached long nozzle that can extend and reach corners quite easily. Dirt Devil thinks of everything. The Dirt Devil Scorpion Stik can either function as a vacuum or a hand vacuum with just a simple removal of the attachable stick.
I have had this vacuum for about three years now, and it is still working beautifully! So I would highly recommend the Dirt Devil Scorpion Hand Stik to any college student or anyone who likes convenience while vacuuming.
