Whether you’re looking for a great way to get your house clean in a jiffy, or looking for a great gift for that “neat-freak” on your holiday shopping list, you have to check out the VAC+ from Nugeni!  While vacuums have changed over their course of making our chores easier, you haven’t seen anything like Nugeni before, and I promise you, you won’t be disappointed.

 

 

Meet the powerful and beautiful Nugeni VAC+.  This machine is not only powerful, but it’s lightweight AND cordless allowing you to take your cleaning to the next level like never before.  This stunning vacuum has a patented 3D turbine motor for the most power you’ve ever felt out of a cordless vacuum.  The AllergyAware filter with dual layer technology helps reduce allergy and asthma triggers for whole house health…and let me tell you, as a mother of a teenage son who was suffered with asthma his whole life, this is truly a beautiful thing.  Now you can reach spaces that were inaccessible before, high and low, with the power of an upright AND the ease of a handheld all in one convenient machine.  With the wide range of included accessories, you can customize your cleaning needs for any space no matter how large or small.

 

 

The attachments fit perfectly onto the Nugeni when using it in handheld mode.  Simply attach the adapter piece, pop on the attachment you need, and you’re ready to clean anywhere you can think of…even the car!  With quick change technology you’ll be able to easily convert your Nugeni VAC+ from a cordless handheld vacuum to an upright stick vacuum in no time at all to deliver a superior clean on all types of surfaces.

 

 

The VAC+ lives on a convenient vacuum charging base, which also stores the full line of vacuum accessories, including a crevice tool, long reach extension wand, vacuum brush, and hard floor tool. Inaccessible areas are a thing of the past!  A 20vMax Lithium-Ion battery allows for up to 25 minutes of cordless vacuum run time, depending on how much you use turbo mode, which is available at the push of a button to allow extra suction on demand.
