My Requirements for a Cordless Vacuum Cleaner

I wanted a new cordless vacuum and it needed to meet all four of these criteria:

1. It had to be cordless (obviously)
2. It needed to be BAGLESS (I hate messing with vacuum cleaner bags!)
3. It had to be great for pet hair.
4. It had to have awesome customer reviews and ratings.

Based on those criteria, there were only 5 cordless vacuums that met my needs. One is a handheld and the other 4 cordless vacuums are stick/upright vacuum cleaners.

Here are the Top 5 Cordless, Bagless, Awesome for Pet Hair, Best-Rated Vacuum Cleaners

Speedy Sweep Cordless Vacuum Review

stars Better Than Advertised!

Bought the Speedy Sweeper as a housewarming present for my son and his wife's two-bedroom condo and it worked really well right out of the box. According to them, it worked even better than advertised!! What's more, they have a cat and the second brush for pets worked great!

Dyson DC44 Cordless Vacuum Review:

stars Torn Between 4 or 5 Stars

So, I had a hard time trying to decide whether to give this 4 or 5 stars. I have never had any Dyson vacuums before so I can not compare it to other models. Most of our house is wood floors and we have two grown Labs and two older cats, so obviously we really get a lot of use out of a vacuum. It is a great vacuum, but not perfect.... Read the rest here

stars I LOVE Vacuuming (Did I Just Say That!??!)

Yes, I did just say that. Because this is the best vacuum ever. I don't want to say this vacuum changed my life, because that sounds incredibly pathetic, but it kind of did. I am pretty sure I have vacuumed more in the last month than I have in my entire life. I show it to people when they come to visit and give them demonstrations. Not kidding.

My husband saw his parents using it and when he came home from visiting them, the first thing we did was go out and buy this vacuum.

I was skeptical.

Every other vacuum I've ever encountered was heavy, awkward, inconvenient, tangly, frustrating, hard to store, and broke the minute you looked at it. It didn't matter what you spent on it--a lot or a little--it was still awful. I had given up on ever finding any vacuum that was not awful.

This vacuum is aptly named. I am "free" to pick it up at any time with no janky cord in my way! It doesn't cramp my "style" because it is easy-to-use and maneuver, and super light to carry around, even up and down stairs. It is very "sucky"! I can't believe all the stuff I clean out of the bagless bag (which is effortless to clean out, just unclip it from the vacuum and then open the compartment and dump everything in it into the trash--so easy!!) each time I run it through the house. The charge lasts quite a while. We have a three bedroom home with both carpet and non-carpet floors, and I can do a quick vacuum of the whole house on a single charge. The charging stand is sleek and does not get in the way, whether or not the vacuum is on it. My husband and I both have long hair and we have several cats, but it's easy to cut off any hair that gathers around the roller--no unscrewing things or wrangling with taking things apart--and it gathers cat hair like you wouldn't the rest of this review here

Electrolux Ergorapido Ultra 2-In-1 Stick Vacuum Customer Review:

stars An Elegant Solution

I wanted a light weight vacuum that I could use in between regular vacuuming so that every time the dog and/or the parental units dragged in dirt, debris and now dried leaves from the garden, I wouldn't have to drag out the canister vacuum. Although the Ultra doesn't come in the fun colors that the other ergorapidos do, it is, as I said, more powerful and the charge lasts longer.

It is slim, lightweight and QUIET.

The other stick vacs that I tried were so loud on the tile floors that you needed ear protection. This little gem does exactly what I wanted it to do, pick up the dirt that is constantly being tracked into the kitchen and hall.

The vac funtions very well on all the floors and rugs in the kitchen and hallway. The charge lasts for about 20 minutes at full power, which is more than enough time for the areas I use it in. It acutally covers the kitchen, breakfast area, utility room, hallway and powder room. It takes @ 14 hours to fully recharge, which is rather long, but OK since I mostly use it in the evening after dinner.

It is very manuverable, the power head swivels almost like a dyson ball vac.

What is really neat about this guy, is that it is a hand vac as well. I can't tell you how many times I've pulled the hand vac part out to vacuum up crumbs, plant debris, dirt, etc on tables and on plant stands.....Read the rest of this review here
