Earlier this month I spotted a Henry vacuum at a hotel, which suggests that there may be an affordable distributor of these powerful little vacuums in the USA. If this turns out to be the case, hopefully they can be powered by our 110V outlets.
The other day Ben Johnson over at Toolmonger posted about the cutest little vacuum I have ever seen. Henry is a 2.4 gallon low-noise vacuum from the British company Numatics, and it is designed for general home cleaning. Apparently Henry is so popular that over 5 million units have sold!
