#4: Dyson V8 Absolute
This cordless stick vacuum offers a long battery life, strong suction, and comes with extra attachments. It has an extra cleaning head, with a soft-fiber brush roll that prevents snowplowing when you’re trying to pick up big debris. It also has handheld attachments, including a mini motorized tool for cleaning purposes. On high-powered setting, it has a strong suction of 115 air watts. Sadly, it is really expensive.
#3: Dirt Devil Reach Max Multi Cordless Stick (BD22510PC)
This cordless stick vacuum is an ideal cleaning tool for mostly bare floors. It is very useful when you disconnect the extension wand and use it as a handheld vacuum. The crevice tool fits into a slot in the back of the handheld unit, so you do not have to worry about losing it. It also comes with a motorized stair tool that also works effectively for getting pet hair off. Although it does not stand on its own, it has a support bracket that you can fasten to a wall. However, there are issues if poor customer service if you have a complaint under a 2-year warranty.
#2: Shark IonFlex DuoClean Cordless Ultra-Light
This cordless stick vacuum has its dual-brush-roll cleaning head which a lot better at cleaning big crumbs off of bare floors. Its soft-fiber brush roll in the front grabs bigger pieces of debris from hard and flat surfaces. The second brush roll is a regular bristled one for agitating carpet. It comes with attachments such as a combined crevice and dusting tool, and a motorized upholstery tool. Also, it has an “anti-allergen” duster intended for removing fine dust from delicate surfaces. It uses an extra battery pack, that when the battery loses its ability to hold a charge (which will probably happen before other parts break), you can swap it out for a new one without replacing the whole vacuum. On the downside, the tools don’t attach with a satisfying click, it is difficult to empty the dustbin without getting your hands dirty, loud, and it is quite heavy at almost 9 pounds.
#1: Dyson V7 Motorhead
This vacuum is the best in cleaning carpets thoroughly and works well on bare floors that put it at the top of our list for the best cordless stick vacuums you can buy. It is the quietest unit among others at 70 decibels on regular mode and 74 on Max mode, with smooth handling and the easiest to empty dustbin. It converts into a handheld vacuum as well. It is also one of the lightest vacuums on the market at about 5 pounds. Its swivel joint at the cleaning head turns as tight as anything else. The cons are that the price is way too high compared to plug-in vacuum and the battery is not removable that eventually runs out easily as well.
