Hey man, I totally agree with you on the fact that nothing beats a regular home VC, but the portable one comes real handy when you have to clean stuff ad hoc. Maybe it ain't of much use if you drive only in the city, but proves quite useful on road trips. Just a matter of personal choice I guess!

I saw an online post on ebay.co.in for car vaccum cleaner in the range of 250 to 700 rs.

It sucks big time! I bought one and found it does not have enough suction power. Only sucks up cotton, but not dirt on the carpet.
Was about to throw it off, but my BIL wacked it from me---God help him.

I have a black and decker too and its very convenient for me to clean the car in a jiffy. Takes just a few mins and the car is pretty clean after the job. I only wish i could get the attachments for the car-vac. Like mentioned earlier by LOG, dont buy cheap ones. My B&D car-vac is almost 10 yrs with no issues till date *touchwood*. Get a reputed brand and you wouldnt regret it. Remember, quality comes at a price.

I just use a home vaccuum cleaner. It's powerful. Those 12V toys don't get close. And can use suction or blower. Finally, you need it only once in a week or ten days, so just use your home vaccuum. If you live in an upper floor of a high-rise building, just park your car near an electrical outlet for vaccuuming.

I use a Eureka Forbes Vaccum cleaner..the big one with wheels..Have installed a 15A plug to power the same in my dad's home garage..as i dont have access to one in the flat i live..

The portable ones are not worth it..I've burnt my fingers atleast thrice..three different manufacuteres...not worht it..

Ofcourse, there is the friendly neighbourhood MRF tyredrome at Chennai, where they do a good job in vaccum cleaning the interiors..the only trouble is in getting the appointment.
