view gallery VIEW GALLERY

Lightweight but powerful, these suckers are just the things to make vacuuming quick and easy with no tangled wires

1. Dyson DC44

Dyson's latest cordless vacuum offers 20 minutes of fade-free powerful and constant suction. And thanks to the centre of gravity being located towards the tip, it's well balanced for easy handling.

£271, amazon.co.uk

2. Morphy Richards JCB Cordless Wet & Dry

Morphy Richards has teamed up with JCB to create this rugged wet and dry cleaner that's tough enough for any DIY or household spills. With two litres' capacity, 15 minutes running time, an in-car charger and a handy carry strap, it's ideal for both indoor and outdoor use.

£37.90, amazon.co.uk

3. Black & Decker Cordless Dustbuster

This compact cordless hand vac has a flexible hose, an easy emptying system and a high-performance motor. The pet- hair attachment works a treat, although be warned this machine is pretty noisy and would benefit from a wall mount.

£112.57, amazon.co.uk

4. Hoover Clik

With up to 18 minutes running time, a quick-release dust bin and integrated crevice tool that lets you get into those nooks and crannies, this is a great option for cleaning cars. It's got a wall-mountable charger and has an ergonomic double grip.

£39.50, amazon.co.uk

5. iRobot Roomba 760

If you believe that life's too short for vacuuming, get a load of the Roombas  – genius robots that take the job off your hands. This model is one of the most expensive, but it has multiple sensors and advanced scheduling options that guarantee superior cleaning performance automatically up to seven times a week.

£399.99, lakeland.co.uk

6. Gtec AirRam

From cobwebs in corners to filthy floors, this streamlined machine will rid you of them all with high-speed efficiency. What's more, revolutionary new technology compresses all the dirt, dust and fluff collected into a tight bale so that you can empty it into the bin with no need for expensive bags or mess.

£199.99, johnlewis.com

7. Samsung FlexSlim

This sleek, lightweight and flexible vacuum cleaner fits into the smallest of spaces, even on its freestanding charge base, meaning that it's always ready to go. You can use it either as an upright cleaner or hand-held – so it's as useful for the car as for the living room.

£129.97, tesco.com

8. Shark Navigator

This lightweight vacuum cleaner has seriously powerful suction and fits into tight corners, making it a wise purchase for pet owners. Thanks to the single-cyclone technology, it works on any surface, whether carpet, rug or hard floor.

£139.99, lakeland.co.uk

9. Vorwerk Kobold vc100

Who would have thought a vacuum cleaner could be so chic? Even the box is stylish. It ticks all the practical boxes, too, thanks to be being compact, light and powerful – ideal for sucking up crumbs from the dinner table or keeping home offices and cars spick and span.

£149, amazon.co.uk

10. AEG UltraPower

This clever new machine runs for up to 60 minutes in one go – long enough to clean the whole house without having to recharge. If you want to clean for even longer, a booster battery pack is available for you to double the cleaning time to two hours.

£179, johnlewis.com
