Best Lightweight Vacuum Cleaners 2018: 8 great portable cleaners


Key features:

  • 3.9kg bagless upright vacuum cleaner
  • Large-capacity dust bin
  • HEPA-class filtration and mini turbo-brush tool
  • Review Price: £70

The Vonhaus 1200Watt Cyclonic bucks the trend of low budget vacuum cleaners having weak suction power. Its powerful motor delivers quite a punch on carpets, while its HEPA-class dust capture feature uses no less than five layers of filtration to carry out a thorough clean.

The vac’s edge cleaning abilities are no less then miraculous. Air channels cut into the side of the floor head make it a whiz at skirting boards and corners – simple but effective.

Moving onto tools, the Cyclonic’s price tag becomes more evident. A standard carpet floor head doesn’t handle hard floors so well, and a combined miniature crevice tool/dusting brush has a bulky, cheap feel to it. However, a versatile mini-turbo tool spins fast enough at full power to win back our affection.
