Mrs Tink Reviews the Kambrook Captiv12V Turbo Handheld Vacuum

No one likes housework – well not in the Tink House anyway! But recently, since receiving the Kambrook Captiv12V Turbo Handheld Vacuum, we’ve had a little more bounce in our step. This clever little guy has changed things in our home and everyone has started to tidy up – even Master 6! Want to know more? 

Kambrook recently posted me the Captiv12V Turbo Handheld Vacuum to review and coincidentally, it was something that we already desperately needed as our very expensive model had just packed it in (R.I.P. Dusty) and we were in the market for a replacement. The Old Duster gets a good work out in Camp Tink with my never ending amounts of hair falling out, 3 inside dogs and 2 young children (inside children). 

If I’m honest I was sceptical when I realized the model I would be trying out was priced at just $79.95, as our previous model was about $300 but, never the less, I was eager to compare. When the Captiv12V arrived I was thrilled to see the wall mount was simple and easy to install. The cradle was far easier to fit into our cupboard than our previous model. This was a big bonus straight from the word go because it made accessing it a breeze even for Master 6. 
The Kambrook Captiv12V Turbo Handheld Vacuum has great power, I was actually surprised given its compact size it was as powerful as it was. The handle was nice to grip and it made getting around the smaller areas easy. Over the time of the review we only had to empty the dust canister once, which was a pleasant surprise. One of the other big pluses I discovered was the attachable rotating brush head which is amazing for pet hair. It worked even better than my large vacuum. 
For such a small device it certainly gets the job done and holds its charge extremely well, I was able to do all the floors and counter tops with no issues at all and then Mr Tink put it to work in the car again with no power issues. All in all I was astounded at how it compared with our previous vacuum which was double the price.
10 points to Kambrook for a quality product at a fantastic price which we will certainly continue to use.

    Mine has just died and i used it everyday.. With dark carpets i’m constantly dust busting.. As you see every crumb. I Also like to hand vacuum around, too rid of dust that may be harmful to my family’s asthma & allergies.

    With 5 kids and 2 cats and my love of a clean house I would love one of these.
    A little tinge of excitement at the thought of not having to carry and plug in a heavy vacuum 😄

    Having a 22 mo th old boy means LOTS of messes, anything from food and water to dirt… How did that get in my bed?!?!? My guy is very adventurous and experimental. He likes to take all the outside things, and bring them, and vice versa. We have a lot of interesting messes in interesting places! The Kambrook Captiv 12V turbo handheld vacuum would certainly become my new best friend!

    This little vacuum could probably change my life. I just wanted to start off by saying “My name is Jen, and I have a problem with creating mess.” Now that it’s out in the open (step 1 is admitting you have a problem so we’ve gotten that far) I can say, I am that person who leaves crumbs on the side, hair on the couch and tracks dirt up the stairs. Every household has one and my room mates probably wish they didn’t, but they do – sorry! With this little weapon I could probably stop 99% of household arguments before they occur 🙂

    This sounds like an awesome little thing. We currently have a big bulky vac that doesn’t fit in any cupboards, so it’s constantly left lying around for the kids to destroy(again). If your Master 6 can handle this little beauty, I’m sure I can teach my master 5 and Miss 3 how to as well!

    after 15 years I finally have the lounge of my dreams. It is light grey and I swear if I see anyone eating on it, near it, around it or over it I will lose my you-know-what. Now I just need a lovely vacuum to rid the airborne dog hair, human hair, fluff, lint and bad thoughts from its beautiful sweet cushions.

    Between the dog hair in the car from my furbaby and plaster dust from the man-child I love left on the couch and all that in between, this compact dust buster would be a miracle and time saver.

    This would be so handy and so practical for little messes. With four kids (all inside) two fur babies (inside) there always seems to be little messes around the house.
    Would certainly love this to make my life just a little easier.

    My cleaning urges are rare. But when they strike, I’d love to get down and get it done with turbo power. By the time I get out the vacuum cleaner, scare the dog, reassure the dog, play with the dog… Well, the cleaning urge has passed.

    Omg! I think is one of the best giveaways yet!
    I would absolutey love the chance to own one of those bad boys!
    I have a cat with anxiety and depression, yes that’s right.. I said my Cat! And with one of his symptoms is pulling out fur! Every morning we all wake up to tuffs of hair all over the place. I actually wish I could post a photo! By the time we finish cleaning up after him, we have about a full hand full of fur! This would be so perfect to be able to quickly suck up that hair.

    Well this would surely answer my prayers of easier vaccing! Im admittedly OCD! I am also a sufferer of severe psoriosis, im in recovery atm from losing all skin to my hands…ohh the struggle! Nothing worse than being OCD & not being able to pull out & set up a normal vac because the weight is too much. This handheld vac would become my newest best friend! I have 4 older teens & a pug that think literally that im superwoman….. with the kambrook Captiv 12volt its quite possible! Kambrook is also a company we know & trust so im presuming reliability which every mum needs!

    For those never ending ‘little’ piles of sand that appear on the carpet, couch, bed, after in the sand pit regardless of how much you dust the kids off. The Kambrook Captiv12v turbo handheld vacuum would be bliss+

    With wooden floors all through the house it’s constantly dusty, and pulling out the big vacuum cleaner is a hassle and sweeping just makes it worse, having something like this would make my cleaning a lot easier

    First time I have known about this Kambrook Captiv12V Turbo Handheld. I haven’t heard any review about this one before. The design looks so standard that i expect.
    So, do you think this Kambrook Captiv12V Turbo will better than Dyson handheld?

      Hi Hasan, I’ve never tried the Dyson handheld before so I couldn’t honesty say however the Kambrook Captiv12V had great suction and was great to use. It certainly would not replace your normal vacuum but it was great to use for day to day and I found it to have good power 😊
