Handheld Vacuum Deals
The handheld vacuum is designed for small cleanup jobs. They are lightweight, handheld, and mainly cordless. Almost all of them are bagless and use a dirt cup. However handhelds are often not very powerful when compared to larger full size vacuums and the dirt cup is small. They are not meant as a replacement for a full size machine.
When looking for a handheld it is best to consider the kind of cleaning you are likely to do. Some handhelds have a brushbar while others do not. A brushbar helps pull up dirt and debris from carpet but it is not that useful on hard floors or bare surfaces.
Cordless handhelds are powered by a rechargeable battery. Many batteries will last some 15 minutes or so on a full charge but some will not. Battery life is an important feature to consider when buying a machine. Also, some batteries take a very long time to recharge while others are much quicker.
A corded handheld has none of the battery issues of a cordless handheld and will continue to provide suction while plugged in but it can be inconvenient searching for electrical outlets especially when moving from room to room.
HEPA filtration is generally not an issue for most consumers looking for a handheld but some units do have it. HEPA filtration is more common on full size vacuums and to some extent stick vacs.
