When an upright vacuum cleaner doesn’t suck your money

If you’re not planning on spending a lot of money to buy a cordless vacuum cleaner, you can count on? Buyers who already have negative experience with frankly cheap no name equipment are well aware that “the miser pays twice”. Brittle plastic, lack of spare parts and consumables, unreliable parts, questionable service and fast breakdowns – it’s the kind of “economy” that few people like. Completely different qualities have inexpensive appliances, designed by well-known manufacturers.

Among the affordable upright vacuum cleaners of well-known brands, you can find decent devices that have an excellent price/quality ratio.


The amount of time it takes to clean without recharging

The time of operation without recharging the upright vacuum cleaners is directly related to the battery capacity, its type, and, consequently, to the price. To make the cost of vacuum cleaner as attractive as possible to the buyer, manufacturers equip devices with compact batteries, which have a limited capacity.

Most of the time, a good budget upright vacuum cleaner will run for 15-20 minutes without recharging, and this is at best. Note that the manufacturers usually indicate the maximum time of operation in the weakest mode if there are several modes .

Dust container capacity

Another difference in inexpensive vacuum cleaners is the small size of the dust container.

The volume varies from 0.3 liters – to 0.5-0.7 liters, while premium vacuum cleaners can “boast” values of 1 liter. In my opinion, this characteristic is not decisive, because even the minimum volume of the container is enough for one cleaning.

Complete set

Set of nozzles does not usually look the same on an expensive vacuum cleaner as on a budget one. However there is no direct and unambiguous correlation between the saturation of the complete set and the price. For example, now on the market there are budget models with 2-3 nozzles, which is more than enough for standard cleaning. In turn, a set of more expensive vacuum cleaners can include as much as five nozzles of different shapes and purposes.

Suction power

Low-cost upright vacuum cleaners in the vast majority are not characterized by high intensity of suction, and are seriously inferior in these parameters to more expensive models. That’s why they are trying to be used for cleaning relatively small, light pollution, or as a complement to the productive corded vacuum cleaner.

Design and usability

As for the appearance of vertical vacuum cleaners, it is not easy to determine the approximate price of the device at a glance. Many manufacturers today pay great attention to design to make their product stand out from the competition.

Therefore, now you can purchase quite a stylish cleaning tool even for a relatively small amount of money, albeit not with such perfect stuffing. For example, inexpensive models often have LED backlight, which helps to clean “pacey” corners.

The best vertical vacuum cleaners at a price up to 10 000 Dollars.
