Choosing the Best Stick Vacuum

One of the major pros of having a stick vacuum is maneuverability mainly because it is much smaller than other types of vacuums. Because of its size, there are a few things to keep in mind when looking for just the right kind for you. Things like what attachments it comes with, battery time if cordless, and dustbin capacity are some points to keep in mind when choosing your next stick vacuum.
  • Best Attachments: If you’re getting a stick vacuum to replace a canister or upright vacuum, a good idea is to make sure you get the right attachments with your new vacuum. One of the more useful tools is the brush roll and an attachment for vacuuming carpet. Another important attachment is the narrow crevice tool. Useful for all the small corners and crevices of your house. An upholstery brush is also a great tool for vacuuming your furniture etc. Some of the newer versions of stick vacuums can be turned into a smaller handheld vacuum for an easy cleaner for the insides of your cabinets and/or the inside of your car.
  • Dust Bin Capacity: Because of its size, the stick will most likely come with a smaller dust bin. So look for one with an easy-to-empty canister, this is also a much more environmentally friendly solution rather than having to buy bags for your vacuum.
  • Cord Length (if any): Most stick vacuums are cordless, which makes them super easy to maneuver around the house. If it has a cord, make sure you find one with a longer cord, so you don’t have to switch outlets more than necessary.
  • Battery (Li-ion vs. NiMH): So because most are cordless, most will be running on rechargeable batteries. Two different kinds that are most common are Lithium-ion and NiMH. Both are quite similar as they can hold a similar amount of power. However, the li-ion battery cells can be charged and discharged more rapidly than the other one. Another thing to keep in mind when comparing batteries is the “memory effect”. When you charge the NiMH battery before it is fully empty this can sometimes diminish a battery’s capacity, because of the so called “memory effect”. A li-ion battery doesn’t have much of that effect, which makes it preferable over the other kind.
  • Charging Stations: Find one with a charging station that doesn’t take up too much space and/or one you can attach to your wall somewhere out of sight.
  • Weight and Dimensions: Look for a stick vacuum with a weight range of 5-10 lbs. Once you go higher than that it starts to become harder on your body to carry it around the house.
