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.

Deik EV5617

Strong Performance

Cordless stick vacuums have a lot of positives, yet they also tend to have their share of negatives. While they often offer a lightweight and extremely versatile alternative to standard vacuums, they also tend to be much less powerful, with the performance gap often being quite wide. Finding a stick vacuum that actually offers such outstanding performance without trading off the other positives can seem difficult, but it's certainly not impossible.

The Deik EV5617 Bagless Cordless Stick Vacuum Cleaner is one model that really outshines much of the competition in terms of performance. Featuring the HEPA filtration system, this stick vacuum is able to remove almost all of the dust and dirt from virtually any surface, while still keeping its versatility and lightweight nature. Weighing just 4.7 pounds, it offers a lighter weight than many of its competitors, and remains just as versatile, if not more so. Multiple vacuuming modes allow the easy transitioning between different types of surfaces with just the push of a button, while its multiple accessories allow for vacuuming in even the tightest and most difficult to reach spots.

For anyone looking for a stick vacuum that offers both performance and versatility, the Deik Cordless Stick Vacuum will provide both in abundance.

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 easily 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.

Electrolux EL1018A

Cleans Most Surfaces

One of the hallmarks of a cordless stick vacuum is the ability to clean surfaces and areas that a standard vacuum either has difficulty with or can't reach at all. While many standard vacuums may have accessories that allow for cleaning harder to reach areas, there are still areas and surfaces that it will always have trouble with, and that goes without mentioning the corded nature of them. The Electrolux Ergorapido Lithium Ion Stick Vacuum gives you a well-performing alternative in that it can easily reach and clean those tough to reach areas that a standard vacuum just can't do.

Featuring the 180-degree EasySteer swivel, this stick vacuum can easily maneuver to those tough to reach areas under the couch or bed, and can even turn and vacuum tightly against corners without a fuss. The motorized power brush helps lift up and loosen the dirt from the carpet or surface, allowing the suction to get it all without leaving a trail of dirt behind. The detachable hand vacuum gives you the same suctioning power for walls and upright surfaces, and the convenient charging stand gives easy storage for both the vacuum and its accessories. No matter what areas that you need to clean in your house, the Electrolux Ergorapido Stick Vacuum will be sure to please you with its performance.

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.
