Dear Sanjay Saraswat.
I have this model which I purchased online.It has 5 different types of attachments. It can be used with car lighter /charger point. No need of A.C power outlet at all.

Hope it suits your need.

@Mayank: Is this vacuum will not exhaust car battery? A service engineer guy suggest me to not use 12V car vacuum, He suggest me to use Home vacuum cleaner which take Home electricity.

Yes this vacuum cleaner depends upon in-car power outlet. But that is the actual purpose of this device isn't it ??.
House purpose cleaners are good but they tend to be bulky and heavy and aren’t ideal for many spaces in the car and many kind of spills and messes.
A handheld car based vacuum cleaner is easy to use and can clean up places that a normal vacuum with long attachments can’t reach. A handheld car based vacuum cleaner is kind of like a Swiss army knife. It may be small, but it can go anywhere you need it (even when you are on a trip and there is no power outlet nearby)and is full of useful features that simplify all kinds of daily situations.Moreover its powerful,and easy to pack.It occupies less space,and can be packed in the boot corner itself.

Battery is not exhausted because the engine is supposed to be running/idling while in use.

The instructions leaflet on my Bergmann vacuum cleaner specified to keep the engine running in order to prevent battery drain during continued use.It is designed to work under such loads though long duration should warrant keeping the engine running.Better to play it safe than the battery dying out.

I thought you actually requested for such 12V device.Why doubt your choice?

Will make a dedicated thread on how I made it.
Here are a few photos for now.
How much you paid for air compressor and where i can get it. I am looking for pneumatic polisher, for this i need a air compressor.

Newest addition to my tool collection. Blue set is the PYE screwdriver kit.Handy for small to mid grade jobs.Good quality set with blades with NEON bulb and spring,meaning flat blade is intended to be used as Electricity-TESTER too.It also has poker extensions.There are 2 philips heads/scredriver in the set
Yellow is a chinese branded small works related screwdriver handle with 50 extensions!!.Very useful in the house right from spectacle screw tightening to small jobs on toys and pencil boxes and electrical items.
These tools are small and not-costly BUT they are very handy all over the house.

In the meantime I got something for the car as well as the bike.
Although none of my car has a carburettor engine ,yet this gum- cutter spray will still work for my Discover 125 dtsi bike and Honda activa125.
