Ambiano Cordless Car Vacuum En Route to Aldi

This post is an open thread and contains affiliate links.

The other day it was warm enough that I washed my car.

It had been … a while. With winter temperatures as low as they were, blasting my car with water — some of which would probably find its way back onto me — was not on my mind. Car cleaning in frigid cold might make for short lines at the local car wash, but it’s also the opposite of fun.

My car was ready for a clean. It was covered in dust, salt, and whatever else had accumulated on its surface since the last wash. The place I went to, helpfully enough, also had a row of vacuums, but I was in a hurry and passed on those.

Exterior and interior car cleaning often go together. Wash the car and then vacuum the inside, right? Not everyone does both at once, but many people do. At home, I’ll follow up a thorough cleaning of the car’s exterior with a tour of the interior courtesy of our wet/dry vaccuum. That vac is solid for the task, but it also has a cord that in turn gives me some hassle.

Aldi seems to have read my mind, because — wouldn’t you know it? — the grocer is selling something that ought to fix that problem … and just at the right time of year.

What We Know:

The Ambiano Cordless Car Vacuum (Product Code: 831621) is an Aldi Find, which means you can only find it in stores for a limited time. Once it’s sold out, you won’t be able to get it again until it comes back in stores, whenever that might be. Aldi doesn’t offer online ordering for this if it’s sold out at your local store.

At the time of the post, the vacuum cost $14.99. That’s much lower than any cordless car vacuum I can find on Amazon.

According to Aldi, it comes with 1 brush nozzle, 1 long nozzle, one removable and washable HEPA filter, and one USB-A to USB-C charging cable.

Other features, according to Aldi, include:

  • Removes residual dust from corners and crevices
  • Equipped with LED light to illuminate every dark corner
  • The transparent dust tank can be easily opened and closed with a twist

What We Don’t Know:

We haven’t tried out this vacuum, so we don’t know how well it sets up, how strong the suction is, how long the battery lasts, or how durable it is. We also don’t yet see any kind of listed warranty. Instead, we’ve created this open thread for users to share their experiences and ask questions.

  1. Weakest link usually the battery, which is not replaceable. Far better to get one that uses universal plug in batteries from a known brand such as Ryobi.

  2. I bought one, used it, and then went back and bought two more! It’s perfect for what I need it: vacuuming up small metal filings from my workspace from the toy soldiers I sculpt, cast, and paint. If it can vacuum metal filings, I’m sure it can handle car and household dust and small debris! I don’t know how long it will operate on a charge because I’ve only used it for about 15 minutes at a time for each workspace clean-up. I scrupulously follow the instructions by charging it completely through a USB port before each use (a small red light on the handle turns green). I don’t turn it on and off intermittently but use it continuously for about 15 minutes. Waste goes into a clear plastic container and collects around a heppa (sp?) filter which protects the intake/motor. I clean the filter with a small brush to maintain good suction. It is made in China 🤬 but comes with a two year warranty from Aldi. As I said, it’s great for my intended purposes at my workspace and I will also use it for light cleanups in my car and around the house. I don’t expect it to last forever, but neither will I. But I own three of them, and I think I’ll be OK!
