Cordless vacuum cleaners are growing in popularity due to their lightweight design and ease-of-use. We have plenty of styles from a range of top brands, so you’re sure to find the right model for your home.
Uprights and Handsticks
There are two main types of cordless vacuum cleaners – uprights and handsticks.
Cordless upright cleaners are similar to standard upright vacuums, with the obvious difference of being cord-free. They tend to have larger dustbin capacities and longer run times than handsticks.
Handstick cleaners combine upright and handheld vacuum features. They come with a long reach tube so you can clean carpets and hard floors – as the tube is detachable, you can convert the cleaner into a handheld. Handsticks are usually lighter than cordless uprights, making them ideal for quick clean-ups, and taking up and down the stairs.
One of the most important factors for a cordless cleaner is the run time. This dictates how long you can clean before recharging the vacuum.
Run times vary greatly between different models and types of cordless cleaners. Generally, the more expensive the model, the longer the run time – although there are exceptions!
Cordless upright vacuum cleaners can have a run time anywhere between 12 minutes and 75 minutes. The majority are around the 20 to 40 minute mark.
Cordless handsticks vary less, with most having a run time between 20 – 40 minutes.
