Gone are the days of bulky vacuums with cords to wrangle and pesky filters to clean. Now, cordless vacuum options are endless — but they can be expensive.

While Dyson may have been one of the first retailers to offer a powerful cordless vacuum, the retailer’s more luxurious options also come with a high price tag. But if you browse “cordless stick vacuums on Amazon”, you’ll find dozens of quality contenders among the prized Dyson, including a few standouts that have more than 6,000 reviews.

Because it’s 2022 and you don’t need a vacuum unless it’s compact and cordless, we’ve rounded up the best cordless stick vacuums on Amazon. If you’re short on space and need a vacuum that can clean both carpet and hard floors, you’re going to want to add one of these stick vacuums to your cart ASAP.

Right off the bat, we love the BISSELL Featherweight because it’s both super affordable and can seriously get the job done. While it may not have the battery life or suction power as some of the more expensive options on this list, it still can overpower any type of dust, dirt and pet hair.

Believe it or not, affordable cordless vacuums that actually work exist — and the Hoover cordless vacuum proves that. The ONEPWR is perfect for everyone with vacuum decision fatigue (which is real). It’s reliable, gets the job done, and is generally a no-fuss machine when it comes to cleaning your home. One reviewer mentioned that they don’t even need to pick up the rugs while using it and can pivot from under the cabinets and furniture without any problem.

Yes, it is on the more expensive side, but if you’re really looking to upgrade your vacuum experience, then you know Dyson is the way to go. The V11 Torque Drive has unmatched suction power and comes with five different attachments. It also features an advanced whole-machine filtration system that traps 99.99% of particles, dust and allergens.

Miele has been known for generally crushing the corded vacuum game. Seriously, my mom bought hers in 1992 and it still runs like new! But the Trilex HX1 is the company’s first foray into the cordless vacuum game and we’re very much here for it. The vacuum comes with three different configurations: comfort mode for an effortless cleaning experience, reach mode to clean ceiling corners and underneath low furniture, and compact mode for quick cleanup situations. Also, how sleek is this colorway?

5. Black+Decker Powerseries Extreme Cordless Vacuum, $176.61

Looking for something that 1) won’t make your wallet cry and 2) won’t break down after approximately three uses? Black+Decker has you covered. The multi-surface cleanup of the Powerseries Extreme cordless vacuum features an angled floorhead and three-speed control to handle hard surfaces, area rugs, and carpets. Plus, the one-touch dustbin is removable and front-facing so you never have to touch all that gross icky gunk you just cleaned up off your floor.

6. Orfeld Cordless Vacuum, $139.96

Deep clean spaces big and small with Orfeld’s small but mighty vacuum that boasts up to 50 minutes of cleaning power per charge, which is one of the best options we’ve found for run time. One shopper mentioned that they are able to clean their “1,700 square foot house twice per week on one charge.” The shopper continued that “the unit is light but powerful, the motor noise is not very loud even in turbo mode. It goes seamlessly from carpet to hardwood to tile, picking up everything from dust to pet hair to cat litter.”

7. Tineco A10 Hero Cordless Stick Vacuum Cleaner, $199.99

With close to 6,000 reviews, Tineco’s A10 Hero Cordless Stick Vacuum is an easy top pick for a vacuum upgrade. When you need an efficient multi-surface clean, the A10 Hero’s 350W motor provides a deep clean and can last for up to 25 minutes of uninterrupted cleaning before charging. To reach corners, stairs, and other crevices, this vacuum also quickly converts to a handheld option that can use the three included specialized brushes, a hair cleaning tool, or the crevice tool.

8. Eureka RapidClean Pro Lightweight Cordless Vacuum Cleaner, $154.99

Designated as an Amazon’s Choice product, Eureka’s RapidClean cordless vacuum is one of the best options to clean hard-to-reach spots. It has handy swivel steering, and the dust cup is conveniently placed on the front of the model so that you can lay the vacuum flat to easily reach under furniture and beds. Plus, it’s outfitted with LED lights on the front to get even more visibility while cleaning. And while you can quickly switch to max power on the fingertip control, one of the best features is this vacuum’s backside Easy Rest divot, which allows the vacuum to seamlessly rest up against a counter or couch without falling.
