We had our eye on this as our henry is huffing and puffing now after 5 years

When the vax 80% off site was up this was £155 inc postage
£129.99 is a great price considering its £189 on Amazon
An even greater price with the 20% eBay code - £103.99

Hope it helps - saved me £50!

Just purposely been to pick it up, (got soaked as well) got home, opened it up, only comes with one battery as standard not two as shown in the desc. etc. even their own web site shows two batteries. Bloomin amateurs!
And here is their reply to my message informing them of the above error.

come to think of it, after searching around your title is wrong. The Vax U86-AL-B has two batteries, the Vax U86-AL-BA has one. That is why it is £189 on amazon because it has two. One amazon.co.uk/Vax…-Ba

two amazon.co.uk/Vax…60_

Hi guys

Yes I also realised the same after picking mine up
My mistake, the solo comes with one battery, the duo comes with 2 as caverncity mentioned

Sorry, my mistake - we're still keeping ours though as it's fab!

I rang Argos and lodged a complaint and also took mine back and told the manager, wrong desc. photos, getting soaked first time round etc. he said sorry but refund only as I cant have the better model with the two batteries but after a short while and him not getting through to head office to get my refund as there was a order code problem he just said tell you what as I was messed about by them he will let me have the £279 model which I picked up today (had been opened a few times though as a few stickers upon stickers had been used to reseal it, was still new though) He said only issue was the warranty as different model to receipt.

Well done, you got a good deal!
I've used mine a fair bit and also I probably will just get a refund if I try the same thing and my wife will be a little unhappy as I'll have to wait till the next vax sale
Would be handy to have 2 batteries though

Your post convinced me complain to argos over the phone yesterday. I spoke to a young chap that agreed with me that it is described as having 2 batteries and i should go to the store - he gave me a reference number for the call I had logged an said he put notes on it. He said call back if there are any issues
I went into the store today and spoke to the advisor telling her the story, she looked on the argos site and said to me it states one battery so she gave them a call and gave them the reference number
15 minutes late she comes back saying the ebay argos store doesn't state 2 batteries so it only comes with one
I said to her I will call customer services if that's ok, (she didn't mind) so another 20-30 minutes later with me handing the phone to the advisor in the store, her then speaking to the a manager, they agreed to give me another battery.
The advisor agreed the picture shows 2 batteries but the description was vague and didn't state 2 batteries
I didn't really get into a discussion at that point as I had my extra battery

50 minutes later (albeit slightly awkward in store) and an additional battery all for £104 - well pleased

And they still havent updated the web page. "One battery has a run time of up to 25 minutes (Combined average using 2 batteries across carpets and hard floors. Results for individual floor types may vary. Standard mode. ) There?s a boost button for extra performance when you need it." http://i.ebayimg.com/00/s/MTYwMFgxMjYw/z/IQkAAOSwT5tWJYEA/$_57.JPG

Did they give you a extra battery or the other model. The BA model has a led light the B doesnt.

She said she would chase up the description so it's changed on ebays site - obviously not!
We used ours a fair amount (I did take it in cleaned up but technically they can't resell it again) so couldn't return it for the B. She just gave us an extra battery from another box and we kept our BA
