Cordless vacuums are generally light, hand-held, and battery-powered. Because they do not need to be plugged in, cordless vacuums can be used in areas where you may not have an outlet. Most cordless vacuum cleaners come with rechargeable batteries and sit on a charger when they are not in use, so they will be ready when needed.
Black & Decker CHV1400 14.4-Volt Cyclonic DustBuster
Black & Decker CHV1400 14.4-Volt Cyclonic DustBuster is a small, hand-held cordless model that comes with a wall mount base that charges the vacuum when it is not in use. The cyclonic air circulation keeps debris away from the filter, so the suction power remains strong no matter how much dust and debris enter. The Cyclonic DustBuster has an extendible nose that helps with hard-to-reach spaces like under the couch; a crevice tool for getting deep into corners; and an upholstery brush for furniture. The Cyclonic DustBuster also comes with a washable, reusable filter and a two-year warranty.

At only 5.75 pounds, this machine is easy to carry and maneuver, and its upright design is easy on your back. The Power Stick has a foldable handle for easy storage, and a low nozzle that allows you to reach into tight spaces. The Dirt Devil Extreme Power Stick comes with a one-year warranty on parts and motor.
iRobot Roomba Vacuum
