Cordless Stick Vacuum Cleaners

Cordless or Corded

Cordless vacuums are battery-operated and need to charge after use. These vacuums offer convenience and the ability to use your vacuum anywhere you desire to. Cordless vacuums are lighter than corded, so you can use one for cleaning anything from nooks and crannies to cars.

Corded vacuums) are electric-powered, which means that they include a cord that connects the vacuum to a power outlet. Corded vacuums are cheaper than cordless, but the dependence on a connection to a power outlet restricts mobility.

HEPA Filter

Vacuuming stirs up the dust and debris, so if you find that vacuuming triggers any allergies or conditions like asthma, a HEPA filter can help provide some relief. The filter will trap fine particles, including dust and mould spores, so the exhaust air coming from your vacuum cleaner will be much cleaner. Premium vacuum cleaners will have a multi-layer filtration system to ensure that no allergens are left behind.

Bin Capacity

The larger the bin capacity, the less often you need to empty it. Consistently stopping to empty the bin can be bothersome, especially with a spacious apartment or house. Bin capacity usually ranges from 0.4L to 1.9L. The longevity of a bin capacity will depend on the house size and how dirty the area is. A modest-sized room might seem as though it would require a large storage amount, but if the room has been left untouched for a while, a generous amount of bin storage will be required.

Running Time

Running out of battery mid-clean is frustrating, so if you have a large home, choose one with a longer run time, such as Xiaomi vacuums, which boast up to 90-minutes of running time. Dyson vacuums provide a running time of 30 to 60-mins. This battery life is a little disappointing considering their high price tag and reputation for developing premium products.

Reading reviews will help determine whether the battery life will be suitable for your home, and to research how long it takes for a vacuum to recharge – you might be surprised. For instance, a cheap vacuum cleaner with only 20 minutes running time could have an unexpectedly rapid charging time that makes the device worth buying.
