I need to buy a small vacuum to use on my wood floors in between regular vacuuming. I have pets and some area rugs so I need something that will pick up hair. I had a Dirt Devil Extreme Power which worked quite well, but the rechargeable batteries didn't last longer than about 1 year and the replacement batteries was almost as much $ as the item cost new!
Does anyone have one that they would recommend, before I go out and buy another dud?

I have one of these Eureka 169 Quick Up Vacuum

I've had it for at least 5 years and the battery is just ready to be replaced now. It works great to grab when I spill some dirt or crumbs on the floor just minutes before guests walk in for breakfast. I can have it out and vacuumed up with this before I would even have the real vac plugged in. It does well on hard floors as long as the debris is not too tall. Anything taller than a cheerio is not likely to fit under the edge of it even though the machine could pick it up (you have to pick up the vac and set it right on top of the taller debris to get it to pick it up.
I use it quite a bit and I am now debating about just buying another one vs getting a replacement battery. There is only something like a $10 difference between getting the new vac or a new battery.

Are you talking about the Extreme Power stick or hand vac? I use a hand vac to do quick tidies. Black & Decker® 15.6 Volt Cyclonic Action DustBuster works fine for me and I've had it for a couple of years. I've always wanted a Dirt Devil Kone, though. I just can't believe something that pretty will last more than a year.
Does anyone use a Roomba? I've considered it for the two of us, but was thinking it'd be a riot to use them in the guest rooms while flipping. I wonder if they'd hold up to B&B use. Or if you could program them to follow the messy guests.

DH likes to pace while eating cookies, muffins, pretzels, anything crumbly. Hints aren't working yet. Some days I'd just LOVE to tie a Roomba to his ankle.

This one looks interesting, but with pets and now a little one living in the house it seems like all my stuff to be vacuumed up is little (cookie & cracker crumbs). The price is right though and it's lasted a long time for you!

Cookie and cracker crumbs are typically no problem for this vac. It is the taller pieces that present only a small problem. Example: I'm using it on a tile floor and I run into a fruit loop on the floor. It won't fit under the vac so it just gets pushed along in front. My solution? I step on it so it becomes a loop shape pile of crumbs then the vac picks it up no problem. I should point out that I have full size upright vac and when I have it set to lowest height so I can use it on the tile, it will just push around the fruit loop too, but it has the weight to crush the thing when it hits the grout line between the tiles and then slurp it up.
The other thing I like about the little cordless is that it is not so strong that it will eat small area rugs (3'x2') It will clean them without eating them.
Keep in mind that with all those positives, it is not a super cleaning machine. It will not beat the dirt out of carpet with its raw power. I tend to use it more for inbetween cleaning..to get some stuff before I have to go through and do a full vacuum job on the whole room.

I forgot to point out, it works great on stairs because it is the perfect width to go sideways (across the stair tread), light weight and cordless.

Oreck's too expensive for my blood! No, actually I just need to buy something small that I can use between regular vacuuming. Do you have the Shark stick vac?
