Tineco Pure One S11 vs S15: Performance

The Tineco Pure One S11 and S15 are equally powerful when it comes to suction force. The airflow in the Tineco Pure One S15 is slightly higher than the S11. The battery life of both cordless vacuum cleaners is almost the same, approximately around 40 minutes.
Suction Power (kPa)

I measure the suction power of a vacuum cleaner in kilopascals (kPa) using a vacuum gauge. The number of kilopascals indicates how powerful a vacuum cleaner is. This allows me to compare vacuum cleaners based on suction power.

Airflow (m/s)

Not always can the suction power be measured with a vacuum tester because a vacuum cleaner may interpret it as a blockage. That's why I also always test the airflow of a vacuum cleaner in meters per second (m/s).

Battery life (min)

I am conducting research on the maximum battery life of cordless vacuum cleaners to determine how suitable they are for specific surfaces. A short battery life would mean that you need to recharge it frequently.

Tineco Pure One S11 vs S15: Usability

In my research, the Tineco Pure One S15 is slightly heavier (about 300 grams) than the Pure One S11. If you're looking for the best lightweight vacuum cleaner, then the Pure One S11 would be a better choice. Additionally, when considering the noise level, the Pure One S11 is quieter than the S15. Both vacuum cleaners come with a motorized floor brush, which is effective for vacuuming carpets. I also noticed that both vacuum cleaners feature an LCD screen. 

Weight (g)

A vacuum cleaner that is very heavy can be difficult to store or may pose a problem when vacuuming multiple floors. It is, therefore, important to closely examine the weight level of a vacuum cleaner.

Noise level (dB)

The noise level of a vacuum cleaner is important; nobody wants to vacuum with a noisy machine. I test the sound level of a vacuum cleaner using a decibel meter in decibels (dB).

Mopping Function

Some vacuum cleaners are equipped with a mopping function, allowing you to mop the floor during or after vacuuming. There are two types of mop functions: a simple wet cloth or a vibrating mop pad.

Motorized Brush

A vacuum cleaner with a motorized floor brush is highly beneficial for vacuuming carpets. This type of brush is also essential for removing pet hair and is commonly referred to as a turbo brush.

LCD Screen

Especially with cordless vacuum cleaners, LCD screens are becoming increasingly common. These screens often display the current battery status, error messages, or operation modes.

Cord Length

The cord length provides more information about how suitable a vacuum cleaner is for a specific surface. With a short cord, you have to change the plug frequently.

Tineco Pure One S11 vs S15: Design

In terms of design, the vacuum cleaners are almost identical. They are both cordless, bagless stick vacuums from Tineco. The only difference lies in the color of the vacuum (white versus blue) and the dust capacity. The Tineco Pure One S11 has a larger dust reservoir, meaning you will have to empty it less frequently.

Vacuum Type

Not every vacuum cleaner is the same: there are cordless stick vacuums for quick use, but also canister vacuums for thorough cleaning of your carpets. Comparing two types is like comparing apples to oranges.

Dust Collection

There are two types of dust collection: with a bag and without a bag. With a bagless vacuum cleaner, you don't need to buy vacuum bags anymore, but emptying it can be a bit messier.

Cordless

With a cordless vacuum cleaner, you no longer have to deal with the cord. You have more freedom of movement, but you need to be mindful that you always need a fully charged battery.

Illuminated Brush

A floor brush can be equipped with lighting. This makes dirt on the floor more visible, especially on dark floors or in areas of the home where it is dark, such as behind the couch or in the bedroom.

Click-in Battery

A vacuum cleaner with a click-in battery makes it easy to quickly replace the battery with a new one. This allows you to extend the battery life or easily replace it when it is worn out.

Capacity (cl)

The capacity of the dustbin indicates how often you will need to empty the vacuum cleaner. In stick vacuums and handheld vacuums, the bin is often smaller compared to, for instance, a canister vacuum.

Tineco Pure One S11 vs S15: Filtration

Many Tineco vacuum cleaners, including the Pure One S15 and S11, come equipped with a HEPA filter. These filters are washable, eliminating the need to purchase new ones for a while. The Pure One S11 even comes with a unique accessory that allows you to vacuum the filter clean, a feature that is quite innovative and not commonly seen.

HEPA Filtration

HEPA stands for High Efficiency Particulate Air. Vacuum cleaners with a HEPA filter have low dust emissions and are beneficial for households with pets or individuals with dust allergies.

Washable Filters

Vacuum cleaner filters get dirty and need to be replaced over time. With washable filters, you can postpone replacement as you can clean them under the tap and reuse them once they are dry.

Allergy Filter

An allergy filter is a filter with a very high filtration level (>99.999%), capable of filtering allergens from the air. Essential for individuals with dust allergies and beneficial for households with pets.

Tineco Pure One S11 vs S15: which is better?

The Tineco Pure One S11 and S15 are highly comparable vacuum cleaners. However, I believe that the Tineco Pure One S11 is a better choice. This vacuum has a larger dust reservoir, is lighter, and produces less noise. You do not compromise on cleaning performance (in my tests, the vacuum cleaners score almost the same), and you may even find it more cost-effective.
