Dyson DC34 Handheld Vacuum

The battery on my DC16 is putrid. Did they solve those problems with this model?

I bought one of these from Woot two months ago. My wife used it for the first time a few days ago and said it was an awesome little vacuum cleaner. I had to sit down when I heard that. This is my wife who has hated every vacuum cleaner we’ve had in our 20 years of marriage. There is no higher acclaim. (Yes, I know she may have just been saying that to get out of vacuuming all these years.)
