The Kone is nothing more than your old fashioned dust buster. However, it is much more attractive and comes in a variety of colors. It is plugged into a wall outlet so there is no battery to charge. It can also be tucked away in a corner, out of sight.
I purchased the Kone to have something to clean up the small spills that kids make throughout the day. It is great for crumbs on the couch, however, the suction is not that powerful. Anything larger is usually left behind. I have also found it useful when cleaning the sand out of the floor mats of my car. It is fairly lightweight and great for the kids to use.
However, if you are looking to clean up more than crumbs, I would not recommend this product.
