Is this the best price?

The Shark ION DuoClean P50 Cordless Vacuum Cleaner. This is Shark’s first cordless “Lift-Away” upright vacuum. This is a heavier duty vacuum than previous cordless vacuums from Shark, with HEPA filtration and a long battery life. The vacuum can stand upright for easy storage. The DUO CLEAN Technology has an integrated dual brushroll system (soft brushroll and bristle brush) for better cleaning on hard floors or carpeting. TRIPLE PARTICLE CLEANING tackles 3 types of floors messes; large (without snowplowing), small and stuck-on particles, from both carpets and floors. The brushroll unit has built-in headlights to see under furniture, dark closets, and other low light areas.

Lift-Away Canister title=

First Shark cordless with a “Lift-Away” Canister.

Shark ION P50 Features: The Shark ION cordless has a detachable “Lift-Away” canister, that can pick up hair, dust and dirt from pillows, upholstery, carpets, stairs, and car interiors. The canister has almost twice the dirt capacity of the Shark F80 cordless. The wand can be attached to the canister for high and low cleaning.

This model includes 1 rechargeable lithium-ion battery (battery is removable) and a charging dock. If you buy additional batteries, you can charge one battery pack while cleaning with the other one, doubling your cleaning time. Each battery gets up to 50 minutes (Lift-away wand or handle suction only), 30 minutes (hard floors), or 28 minutes (carpet), or 18 minutes (ION boost). The Shark ION P50 has no cords to tangle, is lightweight, and has LED headlights to see dirt and dust. The Anti-Allergen Complete Seal Technology® with HEPA filter can capture and trap up to 99.99% of dust and allergens.


Included accessories include: Duster Crevice Tool, Dusting Brush, ION Power Core Charging Cradle, Upholstery Tool, ION Power Core Charger, and the removable 28.8 volt ION Power Core Battery.


Cordless Vacuum Warranty: 5 years limited warranty, Battery (2 year limited warranty).
Cordless Vacuum Weight: 12 lbs. (Canister: 5.42 lbs.)
Item Number: IC162


Smart-Review Commentary:The Shark ION P50 DuoClean combines a powerful lightweight cordless upright vacuum with a detachable “Lift-Away” canister. This is Shark’s best cordless vacuum, with long battery life. This is also Shark’s first cordless with HEPA filtration, and a sealed system. Swivel steering makes it easier to maneuver than traditional fixed wheel vacuums. This vacuum has 3 cleaning modes (1) An upright vacuum for deep-cleaning carpets and hard floors, (2) A stick vacuum under-furniture reach, and (3) a handheld vacuum mode for cleaning smaller areas around in your home or car. Larger .54 quart dust bin, so you can keep on vacuuming.

Shark has a DUO Clean brushroll system to help clean both hard floors and carpets. The TRIPLE PARTICLE CLEANING allows the Shark Ion P50 to vacuum large, small and stuck on particles. The included pet multi tool attaches to the handheld vacuum and will get ground in dirt, pet hair, and dust off your upholstery, stairs, and car interiors. This unit comes with 1 battery. You can purchase extra batteries for this model, however the larger battery on this vacuum will far outlast other cordless vacuums. The P50 can stand upright, unlike many cordless stick vacuums. LED headlights allow you to see under furniture or dark places. Shark also includes other tools to help in cleaning. This model has received excellent reviews by consumers. This model is a Smart-Review top pick for cordless vacuums.
