The best top 9 features to have on cordless vacuums:

1. Battery Life: The longer the battery life, the more of your home you can vacuum without recharging. Battery runtimes can go up to 60 minutes and some cordless come with 2 batteries for more runtime.

2. Suction Power: The more powerful suction, the more dirt, dust, and pet hair your cordless vacuum will remove. Higher suction may however affect battery life.

3. Lightweight Design: Most cordless vacuums weigh less than 7 lbs. This makes them easy to use and easy to maneuver.

4. HEPA Filter: The HEPA filter can remove more allergens and dust than simple filters. This is great especially if you have allergens or pets.

5. Attachments: Some cordless vacs come with attachments like a motorized tool for car, and staircase. These are very useful for smaller areas.

6. Dustbin Capacity: The Dust bin is where the dust and dirt are stored. The larger the dust bin the less time you have to empty it out. A clear dust bin allows you to see how effective the vacuum is in getting up dirt, dust and pet hair.

8. Charging Time: Larger batteries usually take longer to charge. Most take several hours to charge. Some of the more sophisticated cordless vacs have indicators with lights or a display to let you know how far the charge is to full.

9. Wall Mount: Many cordless vacuums come with a wall mount to put your cordless vacuum on for quick deployment.

10. Cordless Vacuum Price: High end cordless vacuums like Dyson have higher prices than some of the cheaper Chinese made counterparts. But keep in mind that the quality of the plastics, battery and motor may be quite inferior on those cheaper vacs. Our experience is that Dyson is at the top in regards to cordless vacuums. Dyson has been the most innovative and often copied.
