I bought one last week and used it once just to see how it runs. It seems like it has quite a bit of suction. The run time is stated to be 16 minutes for a fully charged 24 Volt Lithium battery. I have not personally timed it yet. So far it seems to be a nice addition to my combo kit, but it does have its limits. I certainly won't be giving up my 16 gal. Shop-Vac anytime soon. The specs on the cordless vac are listed in this link. http://www.ridgid.com/Tools/WD2450-W...-Vac/index.htm
Sounds good I will probably get one before too long. I am a tile contractor and would like it for small repairs. I have a propac but it is still a mess to get out. Also the only problem I have had with it is the filter clogs quickly. So I have to use bags which takes away some power. Either way I never can get use of the full power. But I think I'm going to have to wait and get the impact driver when it comes out.
I have been using mine more than my corded one. Plenty of power for most jobs. Very handy because it is small and light to carry around and no cord to get in the way. Not cheap but handy. Glad I got it does perform very well.

I bought it a couple weeks ago and have used it half a dozen times. It is better than the Ryobi 18 volt...but a considerable step down from an AC powered unit in suction force. I'm torn on whether I should have bought it. Inside a light shop vac isn't too much trouble to setup and I like the extra power. Outside...say for cleaning the car...it doesn't have as much suction "reach" to get down in those tight spots around the car seat as the corded shop vac. Time will tell whether it becomes a "shelf queen" or really gets used.
