Gone are the days when you have to lug a huge vacuum across the floor to clean your house. With vacuum cleaners losing the cord, not only do you have compact devices, but you also have the independence of taking them anywhere, irrespective of the availability of a power outlet. And well, they can lick dust, crumbs, leaves, and the likes without any difficulty. The best part is that now cordless vacuum cleaners are affordable and are easily available under $300.
Apart from being super convenient, they do not take up a huge space for storage. With battery tech becoming better with days, you can easily carry on your vacuuming for close to 30 mins-45 mins before the device needs a recharge.
Though Dyson popularised the trend of cordless stick vacuum cleaners, other manufacturers have caught up and there are a great many alternatives out there.
So, if you are in the market looking for affordable vacuum cleaners under $300, here are some of our recommendations.
The Puweike Cordless is a lightweight stick vacuum cleaner that is ideal for small spaces and quick clean-ups. It looks sleek, compact, and its light nature makes it easy to be maneuvered. Similar to most stick vacuum cleaners, it's top-heavy. But thankfully, it can be mounted on walls or inside closet space without any difficulty.
It has a suction power of 12Kpa, and the performance is on par with the price. There are two suction settings — Low and High. While the former is good enough for touch-ups, you can opt for the higher setting if you want to have a thorough clean of the house. Again, do note that the higher setting will eat up more battery juice.
While it's great for cleaning wooden surfaces, small mats, sofas, and dogs' hair (see Best Pet Feeder Cameras), it is not ideal for cleaning heavy carpets or medium pile carpets.
The Puweike Cordless Stick Vacuum cleaner has amassed several good reviews, all thanks to its easy installation process and its lightweight nature. More importantly, they loved its maneuverability.
However, it has a few limitations. For one, there are fewer attachments. Secondly, the battery is a tad on the weaker side. On a single charge, it can carry on for 20 minutes to 35 minutes. On the upside, its lightweight construction makes up for it.
Another small, lightweight, and easy to maneuver cordless vacuum cleaner is the Moosoo Cordless Vacuum. This one has a suction power of 10Kpa and is great for small house touch-ups and for sucking up pet hair. What makes it different from the product above is the inclusion of and easy-cleaning pet hair attachment and LED lights at the front.
This inclusion makes it easy to clean hard-to-reach areas such as under tables or beds. Plus, the filters can be easily washed.
When it comes to performance, it works well on tile floors, hardwood floors, and even on a carpeted surface. Many users have recommended it for hardwood floors.
Battery-wise, it works for around 30 minutes on a single charge and is good enough for a small house.
Another affordable vacuum cleaner is the one by Beauden. This one boasts of a run time of 40 minutes on a single house and a lightweight design. If we talk numbers, it just weighs 8.3 pounds. Plus, the 160W motor is quite apt in sucking in pet hair, dust, lint, and the likes. Furthermore, it's very silent and won't wake up your entire household when you vacuum.
This model is also easy to use. And for its price, it's one of the best options out there if your house has an area smaller than 1200 sqft.
Though the battery life is great, there is no option to swap out the batteries in the long run. Hence, if the batteries go bad, you'll have to invest in a new vacuum cleaner.
Another powerful and efficient device is the Inse Cordless Vacuum Cleaner. This is a 60W strong cleaner with a max power suction of 12KPa. One of its primary highlights is that it's very silent at 65db. Like its counterparts above, it has two settings, and the high setting is the apt one when you want to go on a full-on cleaning spree. It bundles a brush attachment and nifty nozzle that's designed to reach the hard-to-reach crevices and corners.
The Inse Cordless Vacuum Cleaner is powered by a 2200 mAh and takes around 4 hours to charge completely. Once charged, it's good enough to last about 45 minutes on a low charge (20 minutes on a full charge).
Cleaning the dirtbag is pretty much easy. All you need to do is pop it open and dump out the content. Moreover, the device assembly is simple and barely takes more than 10 minutes of your time. At the same time, easy took me less than five minutes, and it didn’t require any tools.
Again, this vacuum cleaner is more designed for hardwood floors rather than carpeted floors, though it can clean carpets and rugs to some extent.
The nozzle has been appreciated by many since it can reach crevices and corners quite conveniently.
So what sets the WOWGO Cordless Stick Vacuum Cleaner apart from the above products? For starters, it has a suction power of 22Kpa, which is great for houses with combination floors. Plus, the suction is on par with premium products. It is strong enough to suck in minute dirt particles and even cobwebs. What's more, it works great on medium and low pile carpets.
At the same time, it's lightweight and is easy to maneuver. You can point the nozzle just about anywhere to lick in dust, dirt, and pet hairs. Plus, it's not loud when compared to their wired counterparts. And these features have been appreciated by the users who have bought this product. They seem to love its suction power.
Do note that it has certain limitations. For one, the battery won't last you more than 30 minutes if you use it in the high power mode. Secondly, it's not designed to work on high pile carpets.
On the upside, there are three suction modes — Low, Medium, or High. So you can play around with the modes as per the area you are cleaning.
The Tineco A11 Hero is slightly expensive than its counterparts above. However, its suction power more than makes up for it. This light and powerful vacuum cleaner has a 45W motor that can suck even the finest of dust particles, and the two thousand reviews on Amazon at proof of this claim.
This 4.4-rated product has neat LED lights at the front. Plus, at 30 minutes, the battery life is also quite decent. This cordless vacuum cleaner comes with two batteries. So that even if one of them runs out, you can swap it with a charged one to continue your cleaning duties.
Apart from that, you get quite a few accessories with this one. At the same time, you get solid build quality and is durable in the long run.
If you have a pet who sheds a lot, the Shark Rocket Pet Pro is the one for you. This one has a wattage of 181W and is super light to use.

At the same time, the battery life is great and can last around 30-40 minutes of charge time between charges.
Plus, the swivel head makes it easy to reach under beds, cupboards, and similarly hard-to-reach places. And the LED headlights are a bonus. On top of it, the Shark Rocket Pet Pro uses a HEPA filter.
Though it has enjoyed some great reviews, the Shark Rocket Pet Pro has some limitations. For one, this product does not come with a wall mount. Hence you will have to find a proper location to store this vacuum cleaner. Secondly, it's a little top-heavy, which can be problematic for some users.
Clean the Dust Away
One of the best things about cordless stick vacuum cleaners is that you do not have to find a compatible AC outlet each time you decide to clean some hard-to-reach areas. Secondly, there's no fear of tripping on cords and cables. Plus, they shine outside the house too.
All you need to do is keep them properly charged.
