Dyson Cyclone V10 Animal

Extremely Powerful

Looking for a truly powerful home vacuum cleaner that is also quite versatile in its use can be a problem. The vacuums are either too large to be used in areas where a stick vacuum can be used, or they just aren't powerful enough. Thankfully, that is not the case here. Packing a truly powerful motor and distinguished by a really long run time, the Dyson V10 Absolute is hands down the best cordless vac for home use. Lightweight and easy-to-carry, it makes cleaning a breeze and will let you reach every distant corner in your house. Meanwhile, 3 operation modes allow customizing the cleaning for maximum efficiency, letting you choose the most appropriate mode for whatever you are vacuuming.

As this is a cordless stick vacuum cleaner, the runtime of the unit when operating cordlessly is undoubtedly important. Again, no worries here. The increased battery capacity ensures a surprisingly long run time. With a non-motorized tool, you can vacuum up to 60 minutes per single charge without the loss of suction (and up to 20 minutes with a motorized head), giving you enough vacuuming time to complete your chores. For those looking for the most powerful cordless stick vacuum cleaner on the market, while still wanting maximum efficiency, this device is hard to beat.

Shark IR101

Ultra-Light Vacuum

Although many cordless stick vacuums are advertised as being lightweight, many of them tend to still be a bit heavy, which makes using them a bit awkward and tiring. Furthermore, they sometimes are not quite as maneuverable as they may initially seem. Despite being lighter and thinner than a regular vacuum, many of them can be a chore to use.

The Shark IR101 ION Rocket Ultra-Light Stick Vacuum is one that is every bit as light and easy to use as it sounds. Featuring an ultra-lightweight design, this stick vacuum is a joy to use. The removable ION power pack allows it to be charged and replaced easily, giving the vacuum enough power to operate for up to 30 minutes on a single charge. As it takes only between 2 to 3 hours to charge, this means that you can do most any cleaning necessary before it runs out of power, and it recharges quickly enough to use it again a short time later.

The versatility of this vacuum is unmatched, working well on items and fixtures ranging from the floor to the ceiling. The performance of this cordless stick vacuum is also excellent, as it can remove even the smallest particles of dust and dirt from most surfaces. For anyone who needs an ultra-lightweight vacuum with such versatility, you will find few options better than this.

MOOSOO M XL-618A

Efficient Vacuuming

Cordless vacuums, just like with any kind of vacuum, needs to be efficient with vacuuming in order to be a reliable cleaning tool. Vacuums that lack the ability to efficiently clean an area in just one pass create more work for the person who is vacuuming, and this also tends to waste the person's time. This vacuum here, though, was made with efficiency in mind. The MOOSOO wireless vertical vacuum cleaner with a suction capacity of 10000pa will not leave behind a single speck in your home, car interior, garage, etc. Thanks to the thoughtful design, the tool is equally convenient to use, both when cleaning floors and furniture upholstery, shelves and crevices. This device is also great for allergy sufferers thanks to the built-in HEPA filter.

Efficiency isn't the only thing that this model has to offer. The upgraded Motorized Floor Brush features a 120-degree swivel design, making it easy to get into hard to reach areas. The device is also supplemented with an LED light, which effectively illuminates all dark corners, letting you vacuum everywhere even without much in the way of light. With these along with many other features such as the long runtime on battery, included accessories, and lightweight design, those looking for a highly efficient vacuum cleaner will find much to love with this model.

Hoover Linx BH50020PC

The Ultimate in Convenience

A strong characteristic that people look for in a cordless stick vacuum is in the convenience of its use. Being able to use it easily without much of a fuss is something that is almost a strong requirement for any stick vacuum that a person uses. Thankfully, the Hoover BH50020PC Signature Cordless Stick Vacuum provides this in abundance, being one of the easier models to use, all while providing exceptional performance.

Featuring Hoover's WindTunnel® Technology, the strong performance of this vacuum is enabled by strong suction on any surface. The cleaning bristles also work to help kick up and loosen dirt that has been stuck in place, allowing the strong suction to whisk away the dirt and leave the surface clean. The Extreme Recline Handle allows for maneuvering the vacuum into hard to reach places, including underneath furniture, where other vacuums often struggle to reach. The LINX® Cordless Fade-Free Lithium-Ion Battery System gives you the ability to easily charge and replace the battery, which gives you up to 15 minutes of operating time, with a charge time of only 3 hours. Combining all of these wonderful features together gives you one of the best cordless stick vacuums on the market.

What Is a Cordless Stick Vacuum Cleaner and a Electric Broom?

A cordless stick vacuum is essentially a small, lower powered vacuum cleaner that is meant for cleaning thin carpets and floors, along with other items such as stairs, upholstery, and furniture. They operate in the same manner as a standard vacuum cleaner, except they have a number of differences. First of all, they tend to be smaller and much more maneuverable than a standard vacuum cleaner. Also, many of them now tend to be cordless, operating on battery power instead of through a power outlet. This tends to make them less powerful than a standard vacuum, but the other trade-offs make them much more versatile.

An electric broom is essentially the same thing as a cordless stick vacuum, the main difference being that they are meant more for hard surfaces such as wooden or tiled floors instead of carpets. However, in recent years, the lines between the two different appliances have blurred, and many of them are now marketed as being both cordless stick vacuums and electric brooms. They all operate in the same way, relying on air suction to remove dirt and dust from a surface, and containing an internal dirt or dust collector, which can be removed or emptied once it becomes full. Both items serve the almost exact same purpose, and are a welcome addition in any home.
