Looking for a cordless hand vacuum. Any recommendations?

Are you looking for a smaller hand vacuum for quick little jobs?  Or a full stick vacuum for doing floors plus other things?

For a stick vacuum Dyson and Shark both have good ones.  I've seen deals on the DC10 and DC11 Dysons and a couple of sharks.  There is a new brand through Amazon getting some good reviews too, check out Tineco.

For a smaller true hand held vacuum...Do you currently have a battery power tool brand you use?  (i.e. Ryobi, Rigid, Dewalt, Milwaukee etc...)  I have a small hand held vacuum that just uses my tools batteries that I use a lot for smaller stuff in the garage.

I bought the EGO POWER+ 480 CFM Blower and I love it. https://egopowerplus.com/blower-480cfm/ It’s their smallest blower, they make several larger ones. I also bought a 5.0Ah battery and skipped the smaller ones, it lasts at least 45 minutes.

I also bought an EGO weedwacker, edger and hedge trimmer. Easily the best yard tools I’ve ever owned.

With the 5.0Ah battery I can weedwack, edge and blow with one battery and have lots of power left over.

Decent size battery leaf blower, min 120 mph, 2 batteries.

I've also heard good things about the EGO series.

Do you currently have battery power tool system you use though?  Most have a leaf blower option that will use the same batteries if you do.  A 20v battery might not get as much run time as the bigger dedicated blower systems, but if you already own a bunch of tools and batteries it's easy to swap them out.

I have 3 Ryobi power tools now and would like to stick with that line if they have a blower sufficient for what I want.
ECO does look pretty decent

Very nice.

So, for the first time in a long time I'm looking out for myself on BF.

First and foremost I'm looking into a new phone. I've had my current one sin e Law School and I'm finally looking at upgrading. Still shopping and researching, as this is likely to be the phone I have until 5g networks become more stable.

Two, a new laptop. True facts, my computer Blue Screened itself out of existence almost 6 months ago and I've been waiting for BF to maybe get a new one. Nothing crazy, just decent storage and performance at a good price.

Three, Pillows! Man do I need new pillows and this is the time.

Four, since my girlfriend and I are looking at moving in together next year if there are deals on homeish things we'll take advantage

Lastly, the only thing I'm considering golf wise is a Flat Cat Solution for my potential new putter for 2019. That's it.

Black Friday week has only just begun and I'm $500 in the hole already:

Ceramic Coating that I'm going to put on my car

3 Dozen Personalized ProV1x

 

Probably going to buy a new knife as well -- something Japanese!

Wish I would have seen this post a week earlier. My wife and I just sold our 30 piece All Clad set for $500. She got Kitchen Craft because the All Clad stuff was too heavy for her. That All Clad stuff is expensive but it is well made and indestructible.

Just saw you are from Fulton. I am ten miles away from you. We should play Battle Island some time.

Appreciate the offer, but shipping that to Hawaii would probably make it double the price, haha! I just needed two good stainless pans, and maybe buy the saucier from their factory sale if the price drops

We sold our house.  We are packing this weekend and moving on Wednesday.  We are leaving our 15 year old gas grill, and our new house doesn't have a bbq, so our gift to ourselves is a REC TEC RT-590 pellet grill and smoker.  REC TEC is having a sale Friday -Monday.  I hope it's on sale, but I'm ordering it anyway.

Before you pull the trigger mate, check out Grilla Grills Silverback. A bit less expensive bit, IMO, a better unit and their customer service can't be beaten.

Since we're all looking for potential suggestions at this point in time I'd figure I'd throw this one out there, anyone have every experience with the OnePlus phone brand at all?

My buddy swears by that brand.  I would get it, but the camera just isn't as good as the Pixel camera so it is hard for me to switch since that is the most important phone feature to me

OnePlus makes great phones for what they are. Feature rich without a lot of bogus things that the big boys tell you you need. The only thing I don't like about the OnePlus 7 is the retractable selfie cam. I don't take selfies much if at all, but I hate motorized components because they usually break. If I didn't own a Pixel, I would have a OnePlus. I like snappy, minimalistic Android flavors and for me, it doesn't get more lightweight than Pixels UI.

I like the Grilla.  What is it that you like about it that is better than the Rec Tec?  Both grills are superior to others IMO.  My one negative about the Rec Tec is it doesn't have a hopper dump, but I can live with that.  I will see what the Black Friday/Cyber Monday deals are for both.  Thanks!!

See, I agree with most of this. The problem is that the OnePlus 7T, which would be the phone I prefer isn't part of their sale, it's just the 7 Pro with the pop-up. And I love the utilitarian Google approach, but Pixel 4 just isn't as spec rich, but Pixel 3 may be in the offering as may 3A. 

I hate Verizon because they have the different network from the rest and it stops me from going with phones i'd be happier with, like Nokia's new midrange and some of the other Chinese "flagship killers". Also, Huawei, but I blame economics and distrust for those not being available and that's all I say on that.
