More and more often, a vacuum cleaner is equipped with a battery. These cordless vacuum cleaners are very convenient in homes with few power outlets and make vacuuming much more flexible. Particularly handheld vacuums and stick vacuums are often cordless in many cases.

When we test cordless vacuum cleaners, we particularly focus on the maximum battery life and how quickly the battery can be recharged. It is also important to pay attention to whether the battery is replaceable, so that you can quickly swap it for a new one.

Key considerations

About cordless vacuums

Cordless vacuums have revolutionized the way we clean our homes, offering convenience, flexibility, and efficiency. Unlike traditional corded vacuums that require a constant power source, cordless vacuums operate on rechargeable batteries, giving users the freedom to move around without the hassle of tangled cords or limited reach.

One of the key advantages of cordless vacuums is their portability. With no cords to restrict movement, you can easily maneuver around furniture, reach high or low places, and clean hard-to-reach corners with ease. This makes them particularly handy for quick clean-ups or tackling multiple rooms without the need to constantly plug and unplug the vacuum.

 

Another benefit of cordless vacuums is their versatility. Many models come with interchangeable attachments and accessories, allowing you to customize the vacuum for different surfaces and cleaning tasks. From carpets and hardwood floors to upholstery and tight crevices, cordless vacuums can adapt to various cleaning needs, making them suitable for a wide range of applications.

In recent years, cordless vacuums have seen significant advancements in battery technology. Modern models often feature high-capacity lithium-ion batteries that provide longer run times and shorter charging cycles. This means you can clean larger areas or tackle more extensive cleaning sessions without the battery running out of power. Some cordless vacuums even offer swappable batteries, allowing you to extend cleaning time by simply replacing the depleted battery with a fully charged one.

 

Despite their many advantages, it's worth noting that cordless vacuums may have limitations compared to their corded counterparts. Since they rely on batteries, their suction power may not be as strong as that of corded vacuums, although this gap has been significantly narrowed with technological advancements. Additionally, the battery life of cordless vacuums can vary depending on the model and the cleaning mode being used. While most cordless vacuums provide sufficient run time for typical cleaning tasks, it's important to consider your cleaning needs and choose a model with a battery life that suits your requirements.

 

Overall, cordless vacuums have gained popularity due to their convenience, portability, and adaptability. They have become a valuable tool for everyday cleaning, allowing users to effortlessly maintain the cleanliness of their homes without the restrictions of cords. As technology continues to advance, we can expect further improvements in battery life, suction power, and overall performance, making cordless vacuums an even more compelling choice for efficient and hassle-free cleaning.

How was the ranking determined?

When testing cordless vacuums, we paid particular attention to the maximum battery life. You want to avoid not being able to vacuum the entire house because the battery drains too quickly. Additionally, when using a cordless vacuum – such as a stick vacuum or a compact handheld vacuum – you often carry it as a whole. Therefore, it is also important to consider the weight of the vacuum.

The list of vacuums above performs best in terms of maximum battery life and is lightweight. Apart from these features, we have, of course, also evaluated the vacuums based on their suction performance.

What I would like to point out

In our research results, it is noticeable that the suction power of cordless vacuums is often slightly lower than that of corded vacuums. This is likely due to the fact that a vacuum connected to a power source has more power. However, we do observe positive developments: cordless vacuums are becoming increasingly powerful.

 

Additionally, we would like to briefly address the following: the battery of a vacuum cleaner often has a maximum lifespan. At some point, a battery will need to be replaced. For example, looking at the lifespan of a Dyson battery, it is around 5 years.

 

There are some tips to make the most out of a vacuum cleaner's battery life: clean your vacuum regularly, avoid constantly using the turbo mode, and use only accessories intended for the specific vacuum model.
