Depends,

You can vac only, or use the rotating brushes and vac which uses more power.

Also, on hard floor or carpet?

Generally I'd say around 15 min. Great for spot vacuuming or small houses. It's the best cordless vac I've owned, but don't think you will be able to completely throw out your corded.

The battery will last for 10-15 minutes - and will maintain full power until it runs out (it doesn't slow down as power gets low). It also has an illuminated battery life indicator on the front of the vacuum to tell you how much you have left. You can also purchase an extra battery on Hoover.com. Hope this helps!

It only comes with one battery but you can purchase extra batteries. I'm not sure how long the battery will last since I just purchased one a few days ago. I do know that this type of battery should be used until it is dead before charging to give you the best use. Keeping the battery in the charger constantly could shorten the life of the battery.
