Things You Should Know For Our Best Cordless Vacuum Reviews

Cordless vacuum cleaners are a great idea. While most aren’t as powerful as corded vacuum cleaners, cordless vacuum cleaners are hugely useful and convenient. They let you clean in a completely different way. Instead of doing a big clean every week or so, it’s easy to get a cordless machine out to do quick spot cleans whenever you need.
Not being tethered to a socket means cleaning takes less time, too. That means less back bending, and cordless vacuums are lighter, so they’re a good option if you have a bad back. They’re typically easier to use on stairs and most are great to use in cars, making them even more versatile.

Cordless Vs Handheld Vacuuming

Cordless vacuum cleaners, or handsticks, are similar in design to uprights, but are lightweight with smaller capacities. They are suited to light cleaning such as regular vacuuming and are popular when space is limited.
As well as providing excellent cleaning for smaller spaces, they are easier to store than upright or cylinder cleaners thanks to their compact design. This makes them ideal for use in flats where storage space can be limited and a large capacity cleaner is not necessary.
Handheld vacuums are excellent for cleaning crumbs and mess from around your home, and for cleaning cars, caravans and other small spaces. They have a limited capacity, but are designed for light cleaning.

Do I really need a Cordless when I already have a corded one?

A cordless cleaner isn’t meant to fully replace a corded vacuum because it isn’t as powerful. Even models with the best run times give you around 45 minutes max per charge so you cannot realistically expect this to clean the whole house in a single charge.
Fully carpeted homes will need at least one upright or a canister that has enough power to deep clean. A cordless only becomes a necessity if you need to spot clean an area in your home. It also comes in handy if you want to tidy up your car’s interior. For homes with hard wood floors, it is plausible to only use cordless because no deep cleaning is needed.

What to look out for when buying your best Cordless Vacuum UK

Capacity
The capacity of cordless vacuum cleaners is measured in litres (l). Handstick and handheld vacuum cleaners tend to have smaller capacities than upright or cylinder vacuum cleaners as they are designed to clean smaller areas. This means they will need to be emptied more often.
Cordless vacuum cleaners have a dust container to collect dust and dirt which is emptied when full, rather than a vacuum bag.

Run time
Cordless cleaners use rechargeable batteries to power them, which need to be recharged when the battery is running low. The ‘run time’ refers to how long the cleaner will run on a single charge before running out of battery. Vacuum cleaners with lithium batteries may have a longer run time, but battery times vary between different models. Many last 15-20 minutes, providing ample cleaning time for a small area, but others can last up to 60 minutes on a single charge. The other benefit of lithium powered vacuums is they charge much more quickly and generally “shut off” once they are fully charged so you don’t waste energy while still plugged in.

Battery charging time

All cordless vacuum cleaners need to be charged at a docking station before they can be used. Many of these charging stations can be wall mounted, which makes them easier to store and set up quickly, if you don’t mind your vacuum being permanently on show. Again, the amount of time it takes to fully charge a cordless vac can vary – it can take as little as two hours, or more than 16.

Weight

As you would expect, many cordless vacuum cleaners are lighter than conventional ones. The lightest of the cordless vacuum cleaners we’ve tested weighs just 2.1kg, while the lightest corded vac we’ve tested is 4.5kg, although the majority are around 6kg for a cylinder model, and around 8kg for an upright one. When it comes to weight, cordless vacs beat normal vacs hands down. But what are they like when it comes to power?

Accessories

Cordless vacuum cleaners can include tools that help with specific jobs. This can include crevice tools for cleaning small spaces and dusting brushes that can be used for cleaning delicate items. Some cleaners have brushes with stiff bristles, helping to dislodge the ground in dirt.
