The Shark Cordless Sweeper uses a specially designed rechargeable battery pack, which is replaceable and can be purchased directly from the company.
Rechargeable batteries power the Shark Cordless Sweeper.
This product includes rechargeable nickel cadmium batteries (Ni-Cd batteries)
The Shark Cordless Sweeper is shipped with the batteries uncharged and the initial charging time of the unit is 16 to 20 hours. The Sweeper only operates properly when the batteries are fully charged and we recommend to initially fully charge and discharge the unit 2 to 3 times in order to obtain peak performance. Subsequent charging times will vary depending upon the amount of usage between charging cycles.
The Shark Cordless Sweeper is charged using the AC Adapter included in the box. Simply plug the charging adapter into the sweeper power head charging jack and the charging adapter cord into a standard electrical outlet (120V, 60Hz.)
No. The Adapter shipped with the Shark Cordless Sweeper is specially designed for usage only with this product.
The estimated life expectancy of the rechargeable batteries is 6 months to 1 year. This is based on an average household usage of 4 times per week, completely discharging, and then fully re-charging the unit for 16 hours once a month.
