Smart-Review Commentary: The Shark ION Rocket combines a powerful ultra lightweight (7.2 lbs.) upright vacuum with a detachable handheld vacuum. Swivel steering makes it easier to maneuver than traditional fixed wheel vacuums. The brushroll is motorized, so is suitable for both carpet and hard floors. A handheld vacuum detaches and will get 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. Unlike many cordless vacuums, this one has LED headlights to see under furniture or dark places. Shark also includes other tools to help in cleaning. You can upgrade to the IONFlex DuoClean (see below) and get Triple particle cleaning and a more flexible vacuum. This model has received excellent reviews by consumers. This model is a Smart-Review top pick for cordless vacuums.
