Best Rated Cordless Stick Vacuums 2014 – This is a roundup of the best cordless stick vacuums currently available. Cordless stick vacuums are lighter than traditional upright vacuums and free you up from having cords and looking for electrical outlets. They do have a limited runtime, and smaller dust cup than a regular full size upright vacuum. Cordless stick vacuums do have enough power to clean carpets or bare floors, and most have a motorized brush roll. There are cordless stick vacuums that have a detachable handheld vacuum which allows you to clean smaller areas, such as stairs, upholstery, and cars. Cordless vacs use a variety of different battery technologies. Lithium ion and Dyson’s Nickel Manganese Cobalt batteries are the best battery technology, for energy density, and faster charging. The new 2014 Dyson DC59 Motorhead Cordless is our top cordless vacuum, and has won the Best of 2014 Award. It has the power of an upright, but weighs less than 5 pounds. Below are the top cordless vacuums, listed with top features, prices, differences between models, and reviews.

Cordless Vacuum Glossary of Terms

2 Tier Radial™ cyclone & Root Cyclone™ = Dyson uses a patented method of spinning the dust and dirt so it goes into the bin and not the filter. The filter does not get clogged with dirt & dust like other cordless vacuums do. Dyson offers a lifetime filter on its cordless vacuums. The 2 Tier Radial™ cyclone is Dyson’s newest technology available in the 2014 Dyson DC59 Animal Cordless Vacuum and the Dyson DC59 Motorhead Cordless Stick Vacuum.
Maximum Runtime = The number of minutes this vacuum can run at its lowest setting on its battery.
On/Off Brushroll = This feature allows you to turn off the brushroll. This would be useful when vacuuming hardwood floors.
Multi-Floor Brush = This refers to the Dyson brushroll. It is designed to be used on different floor types such as carpets, hardwood, tile, and other surfaces. It is different than other cordless vacs in that it has carbon fiber elements for hardwood, and nylon bristles for carpets.
Floor & Carpets = These type of vacuums can operate like an upright vacuum on both hard floors and carpet (even deeper pile carpets). All of these types have a motorized beater bar which is best for deeper carpet cleaning.
Floor & Low Pile Carpets = Cordless vacuums of this type will be best on hardwood floors, tile, etc, but will do best only on low pile carpets, and not plusher or thicker carpets. These cordless stick vacuums are different in that they do not have a beater bar brush.
Which Cordless Vacuum is best for Pet Hair? = Look for those cordless vacs with the strongest suction (best for hardwood floors), such as the Dyson DC59 and DC44. For getting pet hair off of carpets, look for a motorized brush bar (Hoover Air Cordless, Dyson DC44 & the Dyson DC59 Motorhead Cordless). For getting pet hair off of upholstery and car seats, look for a cordless with a motorized hand tool (Dyson DC59 and DC44). The Hoover Air Cordless is also a good cordless vac for carpets.
Which Cordless Vacuum is best for Carpets? = Without exception, the Dyson DC59 Motorhead Cordless which we tested is the best cordless stick vacuum for carpets. It was tested by Dyson against the 5 leading corded uprights, and outperformed them. It even outperformed a Dyson corded vacuum.
Converts to Handheld = This cordless vacuum is actually two vacuums in one. Its an upright stick vacuum, and if you need it, a handheld vacuum can be detached from the body.
Battery Type = The chemistry of the battery. A Ni-Cd (Nickle Cadmium) battery is the cheapest type of battery, with some disadvantages of losing runtime as they are used. NIMH (Nickle Metal Hydride) battery, is the same type used in cordless phones (superior to Ni-CD). Nickel Manganese Cobalt Battery are even better than Lithium Ion, and can store more power (They are in the Dyson DC59 Animal Cordless, the Dyson DC59 Motorhead Cordless and the Dyson DC44). Lithium Ion are one of the best types of battery. They store more power for the same weight as NIMH, this type is used in cell phones. Lithium Ion batteries also charge faster than NIMH and Ni-CD batteries. The Hoover Air Cordless comes with two lithium ion batteries, giving it the longest runtime.
Bagless Vacuum = A bagless vacuum stores dirt and dust in its onboard dust bin which is detachable. To take the dust bin to your trash can, to empty it. You do not need to purchase bags. Some you will have to clean the filter from time to time.
Allergen Filter = An Allergen filter will remove the small particles of dirt, dust, and pet hair so that you don’t breathe in what you are vacuuming. This is especially important for those with allergies.
Cyclonic = Cyclonic vacuums lift dust in the dust bin, and prevent the filter from clogging. This applies only to Bagless vacuums.
Mini Motorized Tool = Dyson Animal Cordless Stick Vacs include an electrically powered motorized tool to vacuum upholstery, car seats, and other areas. This is especially useful for removing pet hair. The Dyson DC59 Animal Cordless Vacuum and Dyson DC59 Motorhead Cordlessincludes the Mini Motorized Tool.
LED Headlights = Some cordless vacuums come with LED lights to see dirt and items you don’t want to vacuum in dark areas. Only the Hoover Air Cordless comes with LED headlights.
