Obtaining a battery will be difficult; I had a similar problem with my Kone model. Check that the plug you have has a fresh new fuse though as it may be the connection lead.
Sadly because the batteries are built into the machine its difficult to find a replacement - ALL cordless hand dust busters suffer from difficult to find batteries because at cost they are reasonably cheap and not really designed to have batteries that can be found easily.
Well not until someone brings out a model that has batteries that are available...

This rechargeable vacuum, like most ni-cd based rechargeable items, uses what is called a "sub-c" ni-cd battery. If you manage to ge the item open with minimal damage, you can replcaes these re-chargeable batteries. You will most likely need to solder the new batteries in, since that is the way they install them. SO, if you are comfortable soldering, then buy some sub-c nicd batteries and get out the solder iron. This particular Curve uses 8 of these batteries for a total of 9.6V - each battery is 1.2v. Most likely all are not bad, but you will need a meter to find the bad ones. You can find these batteries for about $1.5 each on ebay. Good luck.

I have a dirt devil easy lite for 6 mths maybe.. it charges all day and loses power after 30 seconds.. what is wrong with it.. I cant return it cause I dont have receipt or box

I don't know that vac specifically but it seems to be a low end hand held vac. There is no spec for the battery that I found. That usually means they use a cheap rechargeable and I think the problem is the battery. I would contact the mfr since it is less than a year old. They can verify that from the serial number. If you buy another one, look for a NiMH or a Li Ion battery pack. It will cost you more but it will last a lot longer. Hope that helps.

How to replace batteries for dirt devil kurv

Need to buy new sub-c 1.2 V Ni-Cd battery and solder them in. I did it and it was moderately difficult - especially since the unit was not designed for this repair - you will most likely crack the housing try to dis-assemble. I have lots of experience in electrical repair, and I would not recommend the effort unless you like this kind of stuff.

Assuming that you've tried a different electrical outlet, it may have a defective charger or a totally dead rechargeable battery.

I have a Dirt Devil Broom Vac that won't hold a charge. I need to replace the rechargeable battery. Is there a dealer near Bartlett, TN that can do that or would I be able to do it myself if I bought a new battery?

I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. The only place that I know if to contact the Royal factory cust serv line listed below or to check the website and they may direct you to a local dealer in your area. All you would need is a new rechargeable battery and you can do it yourself. The problem that I see is that the new rechargeable battery may cost as much as a new vacuum if you consider the part plus shipping and handling. So, please feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or in the yellow pages, or contact the factory phone number or website to further assist you with your questions.
