We test the above stick vacuum cleaners based on the cleaning ability, the ease of use, and the battery life and the versatility.
Cleaning ability: The suction power determines the cleaning ability of a stick vacuum cleaner. Generally speaking, higher suction power speed can suck up larger particles and dirt. A vacuum cleaner with over 15 kPa suction power is able to meet your routine and/or deep cleaning need at your apartment or in your office.
Ease of use: Those corded, messy-cabling stick vacuum cleaners are generally abandoned due to their troublesome wires and complicated setup. A modern stick vacuum should be straightforward and no-installation at all.
Take the above Lubluelu 202 as an example. When you receive the package, just plug the brush to the motor, press the power button and you are all set!
Battery life: Cordless battery vacuum cleaners get power from the rechargeable battery. The battery life may be the biggest concern. A battery-operated sweeper is able to work 15-20 minutes when in the maximum mode and 30-50 minutes when in the minimum mode. Get a spare battery to extend the runtime if you have a large apartment or house.
Versatility: The best stick vacuum cleaner should be able to tackle all cleaning tasks. It would be much more cost-effective if you buy one stick sweeper that can handle all surfaces, no need to buy a floor vac for floors, a carpet cleaner for carpets.
Nowadays, those cordless vacuum cleaners have multiple attachments for you to clean just anywhere, be it floors, carpets, sofas, beds, mattresses, curtains, stairs, cars, corners, outdoors or indoors. You’ll get a Unicorn for cleaning your home, store or office without buying multiple cleaning appliances for cleaning different surfaces in your property.
