There's a stick vacuum out there for just about any situation you can come up with. Below are some common considerations.
Corded vacuums historically have packed the biggest punch. In the past few years, however, their untethered counterparts have begun punching above their weight. If you're considering going cordless, be sure to review how long both run and recharge time are.
How much suction a stick vacuum can offer and how efficiently it uses that suction determines how good of a job it can do cleaning your home. While corded stick vacuums have historically provided more suction power, several high-end cordless stick vacuums now rival them.
As far as cordless vacuum batteries, many stick vacuums can run for an hour or more. While impressive, those times are often when using the vacuum's lowest suction setting and with a non-powered brush roll. For that reason, we recommend finding a model with plenty of cleaning time and a switchable or user replacable battery.
Most stick vacuums have a fixed tube connecting the cleaning head to the handle. But, there's a few outliers. Today you can find stick vacuums with both tubes that can bend and telescope. Those bending tubes come in handy not only for storage but also for getting underneath furniture. A telescoping tube allows you to increase your range if you need to chase down hard to reach dirt or a cobweb.
Especially when comparing vacuums that are the same brand the biggest difference is often the included brushes, attachments and accessories. If you must have an upholstery cleaning attachment make sure you'll get one.
If you have a pet, be sure to get a stick vacuum that is made to handle pet hair.
