Battery vacuum cleaners have, depending on their size, design and performance, different areas of application. A distinction is made between the vacuum cleaner, which is also referred to as a rod or handle vacuum cleaner, the hand vacuum cleaner and the combination vacuum cleaners, which are a mixture between the floor vacuum cleaner and the hand vacuum cleaner:
Battery vacuum cleaner
The vacuum cleaner is suitable, just like the ordinary vacuum cleaner, for larger areas of all kinds, but is much more flexible in handling. The suction power is almost as good as with conventional models.
The handle turns into a long handle and on the floor, there is a brush or nozzle with which the carpet, parquet, laminate, tiles or other can be cleaned. There are no more annoying cables and also the search for a plug socket is void.
The radius of action is almost unlimited. Only the battery life limits it. The modern lithium-ion batteries, however, have sufficient capacity. The battery vacuum cleaners, on the other hand, have a running time of more than 20 minutes, often as long as 50 to 60 minutes.
This also allows several rooms to be cleaned wirelessly. Therefore, the battery vacuum cleaner for the floor can completely replace the conventional vacuum cleaner. It should have a telescopic handle. This can be adjusted according to your needs, i.e. it can be made larger or smaller. This allows back-friendly working.
We have already tested several wireless vacuum cleaners.
Rechargeable hand vacuum cleaner
The hand vacuum cleaner is very compact and is also called a table vacuum cleaner. It proves to be useful when, for example, crumbs or animal hair have to be removed or the boot of a car could be sucked out again. Special car vacuum cleaners often offer a 12V adapter for the car's cigarette lighter. Crumbs, lint, and dust are also quickly removed from inaccessible or hard-to-reach corners. You don't have to work with a scoop and broom, but can quickly fix small accidents. It is always ready to hand and provides quick help without you having to remove the larger vacuum cleaner from the cupboard. The service life is shorter and the suction strength is lower for hand-operated rechargeable vacuum cleaners. Although the container volume is smaller with the hand-held vacuum cleaner, it is completely sufficient. After all, the appliance is not designed for large surfaces. Most hand-held battery vacuum cleaners have a suction duration of up to 13 minutes, which is ideal for quickly eliminating a small mishap or cleaning the cushions. For some devices with high-quality lithium-ion batteries, the running time can also be more than 20 minutes.
Combi-battery vacuum cleaner
Combination battery vacuum cleaners, also known as 2 in 1 battery vacuum cleaners, also have a long rod. They are well suited for larger surfaces. When the handle is removed, you can also reach places that are difficult to access, because then you can hold a handy vacuum cleaner in your hands. Combination vacuum cleaners are used in the house or apartment as well as in the car or camper van.
Battery-powered suction robots as well as suction and wiping robots
There are also suction robots or a combination of suction and wiping robots. The robots clean the floor independently and usually return automatically to the charging station when the battery is low. A great advantage of these devices is their low height so that they can also clean under the bed or under cupboards. The suction and wiping robot is a special form because this device can not only vacuum but also wipe.
