Most cordless devices need a cord//cable for charging up! Even wireless phone chargers have a cable in one end.

The hose is a hose not a cord, so no sure how you find it 'misleading'.

18v vs 20v worx?


They're both the same thing. Americans call it 20v we in the UK 18v.

It's a marketing thing in the US. They like things bigger.

Technically it's a 20v but a few minutes after charging they stabilise to something like 18.6v.

Same as 12v/10.8v

Agree, the battery is different, but they are both 320psi/22bar which makes me think they are probably the same machines, just repackaged a bit

So is this actually any good? For car/bike or to weak?

It's about 4 times stronger than a hose. There's a video of it cleaning a car on the Aldi website
so you need to carry a heavy bucket of water around with you and refill it at the tap....give me the hose any time

So are the Worx batteries compatible with this?

It's for places that don't have a hose or power outlets
Oh yeah just watched it, I'm worried I'd have to keep running back and forth to keep filling buckets up
Didn't seem to be doing anything to the patio in the video!

Don't use this anywhere near the bits of your bike that have bearings. You'll risk blasting grease out and rusting the bearings.
Shame they don't sell spare batteries for it the 20v ones don't fit.

Something tells me you haven't quite grasped the thinking behind this product...

PS For anyone who is already invested in the Worx 20v system, the official Worx ebay store have reduced the Hydroshot full kit to 129.99, 20 quid cheaper than Amazon. That suggests to me that the 40v version sold in the US will be arriving shortly. I am happy to wait...
PPS heat added,.

How else would you charge something up. Fresh air? Your mobile phone is cordless was that a misleading purchase?

Ordered this but now after seeing your post I don't know whether to cancel and wait. My folks have moved into an apartment and need some way of cleaning the car, just not sure of this is up to the task?

And will probably cost about £300/400, also double the voltage doesn’t necessarily mean extra power just longer run time, so you will need a bigger bucket.
I bought the hydroshot but the charger took an age to charge (trickle charger) so returned it. Was something like 4-5hrs for 20mins us

A fast charger is available but obviously costs extra. You do really need more than one battery if you want to use it for more than 20-30 mins. But as the batteries work in all Worx tools its hardly a waste of money.

Nah, sells @ 199 dollars in the US so probably 200 English pounds?

Absolutely agree. It's apalling that this level of lies is allowed in markeing. I expect the electricty and water to be delivered by pure magic

Why don't they go to an eastern european car wash?

It's not just a rebranded Worx model, you can see, for example, the water connection is in a different place and the nozzles are different.

The accessories look very similar though, so wouldn't be surprised if they were made in the same place.

Saw the Worx one on a TV advert over the weekend and must admit got sucked in by it and read hundreds of the reviews on amazon and still remain tempted.

£90 seems more reasonable, if I knew the batteries were the same I'd probably jump on this although knowing there is a 40V option on the Worx model in the US makes me want to wait too...

I'd read a few reviews from dog owners on Amazon but had forgotten about that.

This could well tip me over the edge...

Thanks. I think!
Going round in circles!

Pretty sure I'll buy the current Worx model with full kit off the Worx shop on ebay at £130.

The Aldi model came close, but I think going with the brand where there are extra batteries readily available and that can be used in other tools makes more sense.

I've now decided against waiting on the 40V model that is currently out in the US, because whilst there is an increase in PSI there is a decrease in portability, as it's heavier, and the water throughput is doubled, so a bucket/bottle will be used up quicker.

If I need the power I have a mains washer. The win for this is the portability which means I can cope with the current UK version.

Now the soda bottle attachment and window squeegee look tempting...

Ahh, didn't even cross my mind that Aldi would have a full range of tools similar to the Worx range.

Another spanner in the consideration works!
Word so a £70 version. If you already have a battery you can sell the battery and charger for £40-50 on eBay
