Vacuum Cleaners Buying Guide
Our buying guide will explain which type of vacuum cleaner would suit you most, how much you can expect to pay for one, and which features are worth looking out for.
Don't Even Think About It!
Purchased this unit from Bing Lee 2 months ago. From the very start this unit did not perform as claimed; the batteries will not last more than 15 mins each on the normal mode. Hit turbo and your lucky to get 5 mins out of it. The Mop head leaves our stones floors streaky and they're not even gloss. Now the power head won't spin unless you press down hard on the handle. Absolutely not worth the $1000 and furthermore LG Customer Service is useless. Been round in circles for the last 30 mins with a Live Chat agent and all I can get out of them is...they will have to assess the unit before they can determine if I qualify for a refund. Yet to get out of them where it goes to be assessed! Going back to Dyson - never had an issue with them and their customer service is second to none.
Can't live without!
I needed a new vacuum. I cordless one but didn't want to buy a Dyson (for my own reasons) and I did some research and came across the Cord Zero. My brother had one and he also recommended. This has been a life changer for me! I enjoy vacuuming again which my wife does love. I recommend reading the instructions and ensuring the filters are always cleaned and you will never loose suction. My boy has bad asthma so it was a given for me but just in case others have issues, that will most likely solve them. This sits out of the way and with 3 separa...te suction strengths, it is perfect for any mess around the whole house. Battery life isn't great but it's cordless so what do you expect? I can do my whole house on one battery, something two (my model came with two batteries).
I am a long-time Dyson user and always loved it. I chose LG this time because it comes with an extra battery. LG seems to clean slightly better and hairs do not get stuck in the head either. So far I have been really pleased with the product!
worst vacuum ive ever used
I spent over 600 dollars on this and i have to say it is terrible it has not great suction but gladly it has a turbo button which you use quite frequently but then i also spend more time unblocking the thing than i actually do vacuuming it is a real nightmare it constantly gets blocked at the inlet and its not through anything large it just has a shocking design ive had better 50 dollar items from cheap retailers believe me i dont even have carpets i have floor boards maybe its ok on carpet but if i wanted another vacuum cleaner it would not be one of these it is garbage
Better than I expected
Excellent vacuum. Better than I expected. Great on tiles and carpet. It picks up fine dust and hair so easily. Has so many attachments and the spare battery is great. (Although I havent had to use it yet!) There are 3 speeds however I only use it on the second speed as this seems to be effective enough. I now only use this vacuum and have given my corded vacuum away! Highly recommended.
Would buy again and highly recommend for price and efficiency
I use this on both tiled and carpet floors, comes with attachment for doing your car etc. Also has a floor stand great if your renting as you wouldn't need to put holes in the wall. Also holds spare battery.

Cleaning is fun with this vacuum cleaner!
I cannot believe how efficient and easy to use this cleaner is!
The secret is in the electricaly rollong head that aids the vacuuming.
Although I almost finish cleanning the house with one battery, the two batteries are essential. It is great to have a spare battery just in case.
Now I cannot imagine going back to the hussle of my old bulky VC.
I love it.
Purchased in October 2019 at Bing Lee for $644.00.
Good cordless vacuum
This vacuum is quite good. The suction is ok and the battery life is ok too. The filtration is excellent and the noise level is not too bad. When cleaning with the powered head attachments, it performs very well.
Great motor, disappointing casing quality :(
Ive had the LG cord zero A9 for almost 12 months. It is my first cordless vacuum cleaner. My home is pretty small, no Capet or rugs- just laminate boards and tiles. A family home with pets.
- great to have a second battery
- convenient to have the stand that comes with it
- great suction, perfect for every day use
- love being able to wash the filter
- havent needed to use my big corded Vax since purchasing this vacuum
Cons...- poor quality casing - for a $800 vacuum cleaner I would expect durable, high quality casings, but as shown in pictures, bits have fallen off and cracked. Ive had to sticky tapes bits back on! Very disappointed. Replacement parts can be bought but expensive (unreasonably so given how cheaply they are made) - on/off button is starting to get stuck - great for every day use, not powerful enough for good result on car carpet
Good array of features
This is a new purchase so it's not about reliability.
Make sure your recycling bin is reasonably empty as the amount of packaging and it's weight is immense, I do not recall any prior product including my V6 Dyson getting even close.
Firstly everything that was meant to be in the box was, and the array of attachments is good. Mine came with a separate box of nozzles which had no redemption requirements, aka Dyson. The unit feels sturdy and the balance of the units weight seems to be about the same as my Dyson V6, the biggest plus is the abili...ty to swap out the battery unlike any Dyson model including the most current which was my biggest reason for not going with them this time around. I mostly decided this because my Dysons charge time is huge especially after a max power session which if you don't finish everything the first time then completing the job is about 4/5 hours away as the battery has to cool down before recharging commences. The LG storage stand is well thought out and whether wall mounted or free standing, it should suit most users and the cord to charge it is about 1m long (same as my Dyson). It is a lot quieter than my Dyson and had no trouble picking up (on the lowest setting) dust and hard particles from my floating floor. On the high setting the suction is good but you will only get about 10 mins with a powered head (inc the mop) attached per battery. The mop feature is great and is meant to be for maintenance type cleaning, it's not designed to remove years of grime or excessive debris and if you keep on top of things you will be fine. You don't need to vacuum hard floors first either (unless they are way overdue for a clean) as it does both a vacuum and mop at the same time.
USELESS IN THE CAR
If I didn’t have a car to clean, I probably would have given this machine a high score. However, the main reason I wanted a cord free vacuum is for keeping my four wheeled “pride and joy” clean, without all the hassle of extension cords and threading electric cords through doors/windows etc.
This machine does a really good job inside the house because of its motorised head. However, LG failed to include a mini motorised head accessory for cleaning in small spaces such as car interiors. As a result, in my opinion, the Cord Zero is absolutely U...
Do yourself a favour and buy it!
Had this vacuum for well over a year and it's the best thing. I worked were I sold both this and the Dyson and I'd always recommend. Forget the ear squealing noise, the lg is quieter. No hand cramps from holding the trigger it's just press and go. Battery run out, no drama put in the other one! Great for rental properties with the stand and properties with pets.

Great upgrade from Dyson
Replaced my Dyson V6 with this and the LG is miles in front. Can't comment on how it compares to the V8/10/11.
Suction is excellent and picks up pet hair really well. Excellent on tiles and handles carpet much better than the Dyson which used to bog down. Much quieter than the Dyson and battery life is excellent - I haven't had a need to use the 2nd battery that comes with it.
Downsides; it feels a bit heavier than my old Dyson but upside is not having to hold the trigger all the time. Came with lots of different attachments and the charge st...
Loved it.. now disappointed
Its a great vacuum BUT now i have a serious problem one battery won't charge the other only runs for a couple of minutes on low setting. I have been in touch with LG 26 August and they advised will send a replacement battery. . Just rung again now asking WHERE IS IT well nobody can tell me if it's sent or not.
With all the cordless vacs around now buy a cheaper one. You could buy 5 or 6 vacuums for the price of this one.
Do yourself a favour - Buy a Dyson!
My husband purchased this vacuum cleaner I. May 2018 from Harvey Norman at the Supacentre. From the beginning I thought it was pretty average as i would always have to go over an area multiple times to get it tidy. However, the battery very quickly started to fade and by January this year, it was down to 5 minutes between each full charge. It’s now down to about 45 seconds, so I’ve given up and just started using my dust buster.
Not the best result for a $700 vacuum!
I’ll be buying a Dyson.
Used first time today - extra battery great as first battery ran out. Mop attachment brought timber floors up beautifully. Gets under furniture really well, extension brilliant as I am tall. I found it easy and light to use. Cleaned dog hair off rug no problems. Very happy so far
Great Vacuum but the battery life is atrocious!
This is a great vacuum don't get me wrong, it vacumms very well. The batteries are however are a different story. At the start they would vacuum for at least 20 minutes and after a few months you will only get a minute out of each battery. Absolutely terrible battery life even when on charge all the time. I have two batteries, however struggle to vacuum my small house with two.
Purchased in September 2018 for $900.00.
Fantastic, pleasure to use
Absolutely love this item, so easy to use, just click on, click off different heads.
The main head I use is the wash and vacuum. I have large areas with hard wood flooring this item makes that task twice as quick with so much ease. The carpet head is also very powerful picking up fluff and cotton very easily, again this is done with so much ease. All three heads just glide so easily over the surfaces they are designed for. A big plus also is how easy it is to clean the dust chamber.
Very happy with this product .
I have had three Dysons and this vacuum is outstanding. The attachments and stand is really convenient and the quality of the dust suction is really good. The turbo function is excellent and it is quite easy to clean. Make sure you wash out all the bits so the suction is good but this is usual. The additional battery is essential and allows me to clean my big home.
Best hand held vacuum ever
I have tiles and carpet at home and this cordless vacuum cleans both surfaces so well! I would never try another vacuum brand - the ease of removing hair and dirt makes this product my favorite!

Questions & Answers
Does hair get entangled coz i dont like manually removing hair. Corded vacs dont have this issue
Do you guys turn off the charger after your A9 is fully charged? Can't find the answer in the manual to determine if the charger is a smart one. Ideally a smart charger would stop charging after the battery is full (and not provide a trickle charge which reduces the life of the battery).
I see the in the Dyson v11 FAQ that it was designed so you can leave the charger on.
Hi Mik 23, yes I do have my LG on charge all the time as I use it continually during the day.
Plus it is always ready whenever I need it. The easy pick up and use of the LG vacuum is one of the reasons I brought it, have had it now nearly 5 months and still love it.
