Best Lightweight Vacuum Cleaners 2018: 8 great portable cleaners


Key features:

  • 2.61kg cordless stick vacuum cleaner
  • 40-minute battery life
  • Tools include a soft roller hard-floor head and multiple crevice tools
  • Review Price: £499

The Dyson V8 Absolute scores full marks from us, and it’s not hard to see why. With a slew of handy tools, a respectable run-time of 40 minutes and unrivaled suction power for a cordless vac, it’s practically perfect in every way. That is, if you can see past its hefty price tag; the V8 is the most expensive vacuum  in our round-up.

Still, if it’s lightweight convenience you’re after, the V8 pretty much sets the benchmark. All of the machine’s many tools – including Dyson’s fabulous soft roller hard-floor head and multiple crevice tools – dock into a removable handheld unit, which makes it super easy to zip up the stairs and reach those high-up corners.

For the Crème de la Crème of cordless vacs, look no further than the V8.
