          This vacuum functions well, with plenty of suction, LED light, and the option to use as a hand vacuum or in the larger frame. I am using this to clean the mat in the garage in front of the door to the house. The charger only works with the fully assembled unit, not the hand vacuum separately. The charger sits on the floor, no option to attach to the wall and hang the vacuum. So some floor space is consumed by the charger.
          Pros: Cleans Edges/Corners Well, Good Size & Lightweight, Performs Well
          Cons: no wall mount

          These chairs are perfect for tables or desks anywhere in the house. They are sturdy and with one piece metal frame they seem durable to me, much more so than a cushioned seat/back on dining room chairs. These chairs are suitable for adults or children, comfortable, easy to move, and simple to clean. The only assembly required is to fasten the seat to the frame using 4 wood screws (included).
          Pros: Comfortable, Easy to Assemble, Sturdy, Well Made

          A comfortable chair with power recline and lift, though the arms are too low to be useful. The wheels on the back make it easy to move the chair. The recline does not go entirely flat, but flat enough to be comfortable. I appreciate that the power cord assembly is about 12 feet long which allows flexibility in placing the chair in my room. Assembly was easy, slide on the back, attach cords together.
          Pros: Comfortable, Easy to Assemble

          Solid wood, these chairs are useable as is or with cushions, on patios or porches (my use). They are solid and heavy weight. Some of the finish oil rubbed off my hands during handling, and there was a "varnish" smell noticeable as I assembled indoors then put the chairs outside. Assembly is required; most of it went well though some screws could not be tightened with stripping their heads. I drilled out some holes to be deeper on the second chair after problems on the first chair. The part bags were mislabeled (two bags labeled "C", no bag marked "D" though the parts were different in the "C" bags).
          Pros: Comfortable, Sturdy
          Cons: Difficult to Assemble

          These plants came well-packaged in cute wooden barrel pots that make these attractive to leave out on the patio to bloom. These plants arrived literally ready to bloom, shipped from Florida to Idaho arrived in great shape (see photos). Removing from the box was simple, just lifted up the plants, did not have to destroy the box to extract the plants. I appreciate the planting instructions as well.
          Pros: condition, ready to bloom, wood barrel pot

          Answer: 
          I included a photo of the label on my battery; I assume you have the same label on your battery. The battery label shows, "40 V (Volts), 180 Wh (Watt hours)". That is not 180 Watts, Simply put, multiply 5 Amp hours x 40 Volts = 200 Wh (Watt hours). The fact that the batter states 180 Wh (not 200) is reasonable due to fractions rounding.
