February 6, 2024 – 4 min read

Always find yourself cleaning up small messes around the home? The greatest addition you can add to your cleaning routine is a stick vacuum. Gone are the days when vacuum cleaners were bulky, heavy and made a lot of noise, with handstick vacuums, you have a smart appliance that is both convenient to use and carry.

If you’re considering upgrading your heavy vacuum for a cordless handstick, here are the things to consider.

Size & Weight

Stick vacuums are best known (and bought) for their compact size and light weight. Significantly smaller than many traditional vacuums, if you have some spot cleaning to do, you’re more likely to want to use a stick vacuum. No need to move furniture around to clean spots; a handstick vac can slide effortlessly under furniture and manoeuvre right into tight corners.

Easy Cleaning

Manually emptying your vacuum's dust bin can be a thing of the past.
If you’re wondering how to clean an LG cordless vacuum, the A9 Kompressor Auto Handstick Vacuum makes it as easy as can be, thanks to its hassle-free emptying with its All-In-One Tower.


LG’s all-in-one solution features Kompressor Technology which saves you time and effort by compressing dust and hair collected in the bin. With easy compaction, your trips to the rubbish bin just got a whole lot less frequent. When it is time to empty the bin, the Kompressor lever can be pushed down and the door will open to remove the contents. This is a great benefit for allergy sufferers because this means dust and other particles are hygienically disposed of rather than re-entering the air during the emptying process.


In addition, most of the latest LG stick vacuums offer handy thumb control, so you can turn your vacuum on and off and adjust power levels with the touch of a thumb.
