There are many different lightweight cordless vacuums on the market these days. There are upright vacuums, canister vacuums and even hand vacuums. You can find them almost anywhere, both in local stores and online. They have many different advantages over their large, bulky cousins, and here are just a few of them.

One of the biggest advantages of owning a lightweight cordless vacuum is that they don't have a cord. They have a battery that plugs into an electrical outlet for a few hours, and some portable models simply plug into a cradle that's plugged into a wall outlet. You can take them almost anywhere, from home to car, and these types of vacuums are even great for cleaning your RV or boat. Some people even buy just one for their RV, and leave it plugged in all the time, ready to go whenever they want.

Another advantage if you have household stick vacuums is that they are lightweight and durable. You can use them over your head, to clean curtains, suck up cobwebs from the corners of your home, and get into tight spaces that regular vacuums couldn't. Handheld models can be used in tight spaces, such as cleaning carpets and upholstery, both at home and in your car or truck. Again, without a cord, there are no worries about where you are cleaning, as it is lightweight, you can wear them for a long time without tension, as well as wear them over your head.

In addition to cleaning your carpets whenever and wherever you want, lightweight cordless vacuums can also be great for non-carpeted surfaces. These can include tile, linoleum, and even hardwood floors. They are convenient for cleaning almost any type of surface. Rather than having to pull out heavy and bulky vacuums when someone spills something on the floor, a cordless vacuum cleaner is much easier to operate and faster.

The real thing about buying lightweight cordless vacuums is choosing the right one. One of the first things to consider is where you will be using it. If you are just going to vacuum simple spills on floors or rugs, then a model without all the bells and whistles, just something you can use to clean up from time to time can be a very good buy. However, if you need something to get into tight spaces, or up high, then there are cordless vacuums with a host of accessories, conveniently connecting to the cleaner itself, so you won't miss any of them.

The next thing to consider when choosing the right lightweight cordless vacuums is power. This is directly related to the charging time of the vacuum cleaner. Again, depending on your personal needs, you want to find one with the most powerful engine you can. There are now some vacuums that will charge quickly in just an hour or two, and some that need to be charged overnight. With fast-loading vacuums, you can have a powerful vacuum, but a very short run time. Longer charging times mean more operating time. There are even variable-speed vacuums, which offer a choice between power and usage times.
