5 Best Cordless Stick Vacuums in 2024

If you’re looking for a lightweight and portable stick vacuum, I recommend the cordless stick vacuum. They’ll give you great range without worrying about the limitations of power cords.

You can carry them easily around, whether it’s outdoors or up the stairs. However, consider their recharging process and reliance on battery power as these can be limiting factors.

Let’s get started!

5 Best Cordless Stick Vacuums

  1. Best Overall: Dyson V15 Detect
  2. Best Automatic Suction: Shark Stratos Cordless
  3. Cheap and Lightweight: Tineco PURE ONE S11
  4. Wyze Cordless Vacuum
  5. Dyson Omni-glide

What to Consider 

i. Battery Runtime and Charging Time 

Longer runtime for your cordless stick vacuum will ensure you clean surfaces for an extended time without requiring frequent recharging. Also, check if your specific model has an interchangeable battery. 

You’ll have less downtime when cleaning if the vacuum machine requires less time charging – also you’ll get power output that is consistent if the battery is Lithium-ion, and the battery will also last longer. 

ii. Adjustable Suction Power 

Get a vacuum with adjustable suction power to ensure a more versatile cleaning. So, you’ll easily adjust the suction power for various surfaces such as hard floors, or carpets. 

  • So, check if the cordless stick vacuum will suck different materials such as debris and fine dust particles possibly with multi-stage filtration. 

iii. Maneuverability and Weight 

Finally, consider the design and weight of the vacuum. This will affect how easily you can carry the machine to other rooms including upstairs or downstairs.

  • Further, if the vacuum is light, you’ll easily undertake detailed or overhead cleaning. Check that the joints are flexible and also have swivel heads, which will allow easy cleaning of tight spaces and under furniture. 

Also, the vacuum should have a large dustbin to cut on how frequently you’ll empty the machine during cleaning.

How We Selected 

These cordless stick vacuums are for different cleaning work and budgets. So, enjoy cordless cleaning with these innovative machines, with excellent battery life and amazing weight for easy maneuverability. 

1. Dyson V15 Detect

Dyson V15 Detect is my top stick vacuum – I love its excellent suction to remove most dirt particles and human and pet hair (and kill fleas) on my bare floor, hardwood, carpets, or sofa – thanks to the many attachments. 

Dyson V15 Detect Complete Cordless VacuumPros: 

  • The battery offers 70 minutes of continuous vacuuming 
  • Uses a laser to illuminate or sense surfaces, particles, and dust 


  • Challenging to push on hard rugs

However, I noted that it is inadvisable to keep the vacuum constantly on the stand since this tends to shorten the battery life – and these batteries are pricey. Dyson V15 Detect is suitable for vacuuming bare floors and high or low-pile carpets. 

Dyson V15 Detect has a digital display that’ll show the particle count or size, predicted run time, and charging status. So, it’s interesting that I can see the level of the trash in the collection bin – that you can empty easily. 

It also has an ergonomic design so you can easily vacuum the stairs – no power cords that could trip you over, it won’t hurt your back, and you’ll experience less fatigue compared to the upright vac that’s super heavy. 

Key Specs: 

Surfaces: Hard Floors, floors, all floors
Weight: 3.08 Kgs
Run time: 60 minutes

2. Shark Stratos Cordless Vacuum

A unique feature of the Shark Stratos Cordless Vacuum is its automatically controllable suction. The Clean Sense IQ function will adjust the suction power based on the sensor report (amount of debris ) on the surface. 

Shark IZ862H Stratos Cordless Vacuum


  • Impressive battery performance – 50+ minutes cleaning time.
  • Great suction for dirt and debris
  • Brushroll is self-cleaning


  • Longer charging time ~ 4 hours 
  • Not suitable for thick carpeting 

Its MultiFlex wand arm allows the user to reach around the surfaces (like under chairs or tables) easily as it is hinged at the center – it’s quite ergonomic you won’t have to lean over or bend over much. It’s also handy but comes with fewer attachments. 

  • But the twin-roller floorhead is also large and thus might be challenging to clean tight spaces. 

In addition, Shark Stratos Cordless comes with a bigger dustbin so you won’t need to empty it regularly. It also emits perfume through a replaceable cartridge on the floorhead that’ll envelop any bad odor as you’re cleaning. 

However, despite that it can clean for an hour continuously, you’ll get a larger downtime compared to the Dyson since it takes about 4 hours to charge fully.

Key Specs: 

Surfaces: Floors but not thick carpeting
Weight: 4.03697 Kgs
Run time: 50+ minutes

3. Tineco PURE ONE S11

Compared to Dyson, Tineco PURE ONE S11 is notably lightweight (bagless too) so it can clean in tight spaces. It will easily clean pet hair, carpet, and hardwood. Some of the attachments are the dust brush, for upholstery, and one for crevices. 

Tineco Pure ONE S11 Cordless Vacuum Cleaner


  • Cheaper option
  • Lightweight and thus easy to carry


  • Shorter run time ~ 40+ minutes continuously
  • Smaller dustbin

You’ll love that the vacuum head has LED lights to illuminate the surfaces or objects being cleaned including tiny items like dog hair. The machine has two filters that it also cleans automatically. 

It’s also digital equipment that comes with a phone app to let you know the status of the vacuum filter and the battery. 

The function power is also automatically adjusted like with the Shark Stratos Cordless – and so it’ll generate larger suction when the head comes to the area with more debris. But its dustbin may blow debris and dust when you’re emptying. 

Key Specs: 

Surfaces: Carpet, furniture, Stairs
Weight: 2.58548 Kgs
Run time: 40+ minutes

4. Wyze Cordless Vacuum

Wyze Cordless Vacuum is good with couches and hard surfaces – it also has good power but is not suitable for carpet vacuuming due to the low clearance and relatively low suction. 

Wyze Cordless Vacuum Cleaner


  • Easy to assemble 
  • Intensive spot cleaning with 24,000 Pa Suction Power
  • Offers 50+ run time


  • Poor build quality – plastic 

An extra battery would be great to have if you’re vacuuming a large house. But this one has fewer attachments and doesn’t have the automatic suction power adjustment. 

You’ll love it for vacuuming tiles, hardwood floors, carpets, and pet hair – it has great performance in picking solid debris. This is also thanks to the HEPA exhaust filter that will remove fine particles such as pet dirt and dust. 

On runtime, Wyze Cordless Vacuum will give you about 60+ minutes of cleaning before you recharge. 

Key Specs: 

Surfaces: Bare floor, Carpet, Carpet, and Upholstery
Weight: 1.27006 Kgs
Run time: 50+ minutes


When shopping for a cordless stick vacuum, consider lightweight designs, budget, suction power and technology, battery life, and innovative technology to help clean different floor types.
