We named the Moosoo XL-618A the best value cordless vacuum on the market for 2022, and right now it’s even better. It boasts 12,000 Pa of suction, and it automatically separates coarse debris and fine dust for more hygienic emptying. You can’t get everything for under $100, though: The XL-618A wasn’t exceptional at picking up dander and excessive hair tended to get caught in the brush roll, so we wouldn’t recommend it if you’ve got pets at home. But if you’re looking for a budget-friendly option, this is an excellent choice.
The S11 is even lighter than the Dyson V8 above at just 3.3 pounds, but still manages to pack in an impressive 120AW of suction power. On a single charge, it can vacuum in low-mode for roughly 40 minutes, or you can kick it into high gear for 8 minutes of max-mode deep cleaning. The collapsible design makes it highly versatile, too, with a telescoping stem that allows you to convert it to a handheld vacuum for extra maneuverability.
Samsung is another top home appliance brand, and this Jet 60 Fit cordless vacuum is no exception. It weighs in at just 6 pounds, and it features a 180-degree swivel head so you can clear out those tough to reach nooks and crannies. It has a high-capacity 0.8-liter dustbin so you can clean longer without interruption, and it’s even dishwasher safe so you can clean it out without having to get your hands dirty. And with up to 200AW of suction power, it’s great for cleaning even your toughest messes on both carpet and hardwood floors.
