Top 27 Best Cordless Vacuum – Review Guide to Find Best One

By examining and researching the best vacuum cleaners, in addition to the guidelines we have published so far about various categories of vacuum cleaners, we have also selected best cordless vacuums for 2018.

In the aim to give you more, we also want to help you to decide, so we ask:

Do you need a cordless vacuum, or: what distinguishes them from corded vacuum cleaners?

Cordless vacuums have won the market and homes due to their undoubted advantages. They are lightweight. They are also upright and stick shaped, and most of them have the accessories for upholstered furniture, stairs, cars, pet hair.

Some of them are designed especially for certain purposes. Many of these actions cannot be performed with the traditional, corded vacuums.

However, they have some limitations. Cordless vacuums mostly have a smaller dust capacity. Then, there is a cleaning time, which depends on battery. Most of them last about 15-40 minutes. Some have interchangeable batteries, but it means that you will have an additional expense.

There are several types of cordless vacuums. In the following table, you will see how we divided them into different types.
