WV 5 Plus N is rated 2.7 out of 5 by 3.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Worked..until it didn't. I bought this less than a year ago and it's already faulty. According to reviews elsewhere there are so many people with the same problems. Faulty charging, leaking batteries, leaking water tank (which I'm sure effects the battery). There are even comments about repeating faults with replacements. WHY ARE YOU NOT ADDRESSING THIS?!?! A warrantee is a great thing but should you really have to ask for a replacement on a yearly basis?!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not great This is my third Karcher window Vac, I need an additional unit for my holiday home. It lasted less than 6 months. (As did number 2) Purchased replacement battery but didn’t rectify the issue. Karcher required so much information in order to get a replacement I cannot be bothered filling everything out ( mum of three I don’t have the time) My initial window Vac from 6 years ago still works but the two newer models failed quickly. I have since purchased other models on the market.
