Do you have a cordless 2 in 1 vacuum you like?

ailene54February 21, 2014

I had a cordless shark vacuum I just retired since it wasn't keeping a good charge. For it's replacement I want a 2 in 1 cordless that is good. I didn't want to spend 400 on the dyson, so have been buying and returning for the last couple of weeks. My frirst was a Bissel, it worked well, but when it came to cleaning out I never saw anything quite that discussing. Next was the new Electrolux, it did a great job on my wood floors, but when it came to carpeting, it was as though I did nothing....My dog left a small piece of his treat, which remained on the floor. Any suggestions will be appreciated.....leaning more and more toward the

Checking in on this thread, hitch hike.

I'm not sure this is directly related, but I'd like to find a good battery powered hand vac, not a NiCad (those batteries die within the first year) maybe a lithium ion battery.

Also maybe to the subject of the post I have a bagless Hover that is super, did I say SUPER, at picking up dog hair and is in general good on hard floors and carpets. It is under $150, closer to $120 best I can recall. It is also rated highly.

The is rated very low on emissions and the dumping is not task in my mind. I can look up the model number if interested.

Looking back I see you indeed were also looking for a cordless. A little more research, and the fact I use Ryobi 18VDC hand tools led me to the Ryobi 18VDC hand vacuum. I may try it as it uses the same battery and charger I already have for hand tools, and that is an 18V Lithium Ion battery. I believe this battery is superior but I have owned such a battery only since Christmas (present) - i can say the battery has been sitting in a very cold garage since Christmas and it still has a good charge - I needed to us a hand drill yesterday and used that battery - it was full of "pep:". I don't yet have the vac and so can't say how well it works, but a good battery is a good starting point.
