How powerful is a 12volt vacuum Cleaner?
The power of an automotive 12 volt vacuum cleaner is limited by the vehicles wiring, if the current draw is too high, the fuse will blow & if a higher rated fuse is fitted the wire & wiring socket could melt & catch fire!
In older cars where the socket was used only to light cigarettes the wiring to the socket was probably more robust i.e. capable of carrying a heavier current & could handle a more powerful load. In this day & age the sockets are more fitted for the purpose of charging devises!
The spec on the Metro Vac n Go is 12volts with a 140 watt motor, drawing 12 amps of current. The power is limited by your cars wiring. These figures quoted are genuine rather than the often hyped figure some manufacturers arrive at. You should check the rating of the fuse fitted to the cigarette/accessory socket fitted to your car – always use the fuse recommended by the vehicle manufacturer.
We sell the 12volt model to those who need to have an occasional light surface vac, such as chauffeurs or undertakers. Totally unsuitable for vacuuming the whole car!
The same Vac n Go in a 240 volt model has a 500 watt motor & is 3½ times more powerful, making it the most powerful machine in its class, this is an impressive bit of kit for its size!
If you want to go the 240volt route why not hard wire a 800/1000 watt inverter into your car & then you can easily power any of your electrical goods up to 800 watts comfortably, including the 240 volt Vac n Blo 500. Bur don’t forget there are inverters & inverters, some labelled up as 800 watts but will only start a 500 watt motor! Inverters fitted & used properly give excellent portable 240 volt power.
Always use a qualified competent auto electrician.
Just a quick email to let you know I am delighted with the products that I purchased from you recently.
I am a self confessed detailing anorak but have to admit I was somewhat sceptical about...
I thought that you might like to have some feedback on the Car Blaster.
I have been using mine for about a month during the course of detailing my clients cars.
Just a quick note to say I am very happy with my Sidekick Dryer and pleased you recommended that I also buy the flexible hose.
Not only does it blow out water but it was great in the engine bay...
