    Battery life is horrible. The battery may last about 15 minutes but it starts to degrade after 5 minutes or so and then it barely moves anything. Within another 5 minutes it’s completely dead. So, although it may sound like a great deal at first, it’s totally not worth it to only get about 5 minutes or so of use each time you need it.

    + PROS: Price is great and it is light weight.
    - CONS: Battery life is horrible. The battery may last about 15 minutes but it starts to degrade after 5 minutes or so and then it barely moves anything.
