Dyson V15 Detect Absolute Vacuum

In case, you do not know, stick vacuums are also referred to as cordless vacuum cleaners. It is good we clear this out from the word so we might be using the two phrases interchangeably from time to time on this post.


So do not get confused when this happens. Now, big question: which stick vacuum has the longest battery life? We get this question especially from people who do not want to buy corded vacuum cleaners. So if it has no cord, its power supply has to be coming from a battery.

The stick vacuum cleaner with the longest battery life has to be the Miele Triflex HX1 Cat and Dog cordless vacuum cleaner. This was a tough choice as there are other good competitors out there. Some other vacuum cleaners that come really close are the Dyson V11 Absolute Cordless Vacuum Cleaner, Dyson Cyclone V10 Absolute Cordless Vacuum Cleaner, Dyson V11 Outsize, Samsung Jet 90 Pro Cordless Vacuum Cleaner, Halo Capsule Cordless Vacuum Cleaner, Dyson V15 Detect Absolute Vacuum. All of these cordless vacuum cleaners have the least 60 minutes’ standard power time.

Apart from battery life, other features might come to play to make one product rank higher than the other. These features may include power, attachments and weight. One great factor that could influence the battery life of the stick vacuum you buy is the floor size of your house.

If your house has a large area to cover while cleaning, you definitely need a vacuum cleaner with long battery life. So now let us take a look at cordless vacuum cleaners with the best battery life.


Most people prefer to clean their house with vacuum cleaners that do not have the limitations of a cord. Surprisingly, some excellent cordless vacuum cleaners allow you recharge more than one battery so your cleaning is uninterrupted. These batteries optimize full charge in no more than four hours. Enough said, find below are the best cordless vacuum cleaners with good battery life.
