Wireless: 10 best cordless vacuum cleaners

No more tripping over cables as you work your way around the house with these easy-to-manoeuvre machines

Fed up of tripping over the vacuum cleaner cord or having to unplug your hoover again and again as you move round your home? It may be time to invest in a cordless vacuum cleaner.

Designed to operate using a battery pack, most models come with a charging station that makes it possible to recharge in between uses and they tend to be more lightweight than corded versions too.

Another plus point of cordless vacuum cleaners is that most models are bagless. So rather than using a conventional vacuum bag that you need to dispose of when it’s full, the cordless model makes use of a detachable collection chamber.

Verdict:

For upright models, our favourite is the Gtech AirRAM. Meanwhile, for more flexible hand-held cleaners, we love the Vax Gator H90, which is great value too.
