Here at the Strategist, we like to think of ourselves as crazy (in the good way) about the stuff we buy, but as much as we’d like to, we can’t try everything. Which is why we have People’s Choice, in which we find the best-reviewed (that’s four-to-five-star reviews and lots of ‘em) products and single out the most convincing. While we’ve written about the best robot vacuums, handheld vacuums, vacuums overall, and even a certain knockout Dyson cordless vacuum, here we rounded up all of the best cordless stick vacuums on Amazon. (Note that reviews have been edited for length and clarity.)

Best cheap cordless stick vacuum

Bissell Featherweight Stick Vacuum Lightweight Bagless, Blue
$25 at Amazon

“I am so impressed with the Bissell stick vacuum. I was looking for something that would pick up cat litter on a mat and floor and also runners that are on my hardwood floors. This fits the bill perfectly. This little machine is not noisy and picks up great. I tossed my old noisy, cordless Black & Decker hand vac. The cord on this unit could have been longer, but heck, we have outlets all over the place. So if you are looking for a great little vac, this is it.”

Best cordless stick vacuum under $200

Hoover Linx Cordless Stick Vacuum Cleaner, BH50010
$200 at Amazon

“We have had our Linx Cordless Vac for over two years. It does everything we expected and more. We have had other rechargeable vacs in the past, but nothing lasted like this lithium-battery-powered Linx. Of course it does not have the power of a large corded vac, but it does an excellent job for being cordless. It gets up 80 percent plus of dust and dirt and it’s very convenient for cleaning the surface dust that will accumulate over two or three days.”

Best cordless stick vacuum under $300

Shark IONFlex DuoClean Ultra-Light Cordless Vacuum
$239 at Amazon

“I have a boxer (short hair, sheds a lot). I vacuumed my nylon plush, wall-to-wall carpeted hallway (which the dog accesses many times per day) first with a Dyson DC41 upright, then vacuumed the same hallway with the Shark IONFlex on the max-power setting. The IONFlex filled its dirt cup even after vacuuming with the Dyson. This is the first cordless vacuum that pulls up dirt from a plush carpet as well as a corded vacuum. The battery life is good, even on the max-power setting. I can vacuum my entire three-bedroom on a single charge with power to spare.”

Lightest cordless stick vacuum

Dyson V8 Animal Cordless Stick Vacuum Cleaner
$366 at Amazon

“The Dyson V8 is amazing. It’s easy to use and works better than our Dyson upright. We especially love it for hardwood and tile floors. But it also works great on rugs, stairs, and to vacuum our cars. It’s much quieter than expected and holds a charge long enough to clean the main floor and upstairs of our three-bedroom house (2,000 square feet). We’ve had it for two weeks and have used it every day!”

Best cordless stick vacuum for hard-to-reach places

eufy HomeVac Lightweight Cordless Upright-Style Vacuum Cleaner
$100 at Amazon

“The vacuum is lightweight, easy-squeezy to clean and assemble; takes but just a few minutes, really! They have built this jewel well, sturdy frame, etc. The hand length is longer than the others — you don’t have to stoop when vacuuming. The swivel is awesome. The base turns 180 and gets into corners and under beds, etc. (where it’s hard to get to, especially with big vacs) easily. It is a dream for me, an old man with disabilities … I highly recommend it.”

Best cordless stick vacuum for pet owners

Black & Decker Power Series Pro Cordless Lithium 2in1 Pet Stick Vacuum
$149 at Amazon

“I have dogs that shed dog hair all over the house, so vacuums in the past have gotten clogged up. This vacuum seems to have enough power and a direct route for the hair to get into the bucket without getting clogged. I vacuumed my whole house (over 1,700 square feet) and the vacuum wasn’t even fully charged. This vacuum does a really good job at pulling debris away from walls and corners. The hose for using with the tools is long and pliable, so it’s easy to maneuver with. Washable filter is another genius part. The bucket that holds all the debris is removable to take apart and wash, too.”

Best LED cordless stick vacuum

Roomie Tec Cordless Vacuum Cleaner, 2 in 1 Handheld Vacuum
$100 at Amazon

“I purchased this two-in-one vacuum to replace my old corded Navigator because it is too heavy on my wrist. This one is almost the lightest from my search. The suction power is strong enough to pick up my cat’s hair on the carpet, so I am very satisfied. I usually finish cleaning three bedrooms and a living room, with the battery-indicating light still in the middle. I also use the handheld vacuum to clean my car. Overall a fairly good experience with it.”

Best LED cordless stick vacuum with a HEPA filter

tineco A10 Hero Cordless Vacuum Cleaner
$200 at Amazon

“The overall quality and performance are five stars. Seems very light to hold, I like the locking on switch, too, so you don’t have to squeeze the trigger the entire time. No replaceable paper filters to order, everything is washable and intelligently fits together. Cleans carpets and floors very well. The LED lights are great, we turn off all the lights and the LEDs show you where all the dirt is. Overall, five stars.”
