Who Makes The Best Cheap Cordless Stick Vacuums?

If you’re upgrading to a stick vac, chances are you’re already sold on all of the time- and effort-saving features they deliver. Want them all for less? Look to leading brands such as Electrolux, Vax, Bosch and Shark.

Entry-level stick vacuums by Electrolux offer outstanding value for money. Some pack lithium ion batteries for up to 38 minutes of cordless cleaning. “Where you’ll get big bang for your buck is with Electrolux’s cutting-edge self-cleaning technology,” says Nick. “Its BrushRollClean™ feature uses an internal blade to remove entwined hairs and fibres, all at the push of a button.”

Vax is your go-to for an affordable stick vac that goes the extra mile. Use standard mode for removing dust, lint and food crumbs then switch to boost mode for extra suction when you need it. Upholstery looking tacky? Unclip the mini motorised tool for a quick spruce-up of couches, curtains and car seats.

A mid-range stick vacuum by Bosch is a renter’s dream. Unlike most cordless vacuum cleaners, they’re freestanding with a detachable battery, so there’s no need for a docking station or wall brackets. With a whopping 45-minute battery life and a back-saving weight of only 2.5kg, you’ve got everything the big brands offer at a fraction of the price.    

Want an easy-to-use, high-performing, budget-friendly stick vacuum but have a lot of floorspace to clean? Shark has you covered with its mid-range corded stick vac. A huge 8m power cord lets you roam relatively free without ever running out of power.
