What is a cordless vacuum cleaner?
A cordless vacuum cleaner is a portable device free of power cord instead of which it uses the power of the inbuilt rechargeable battery. The battery capacity is not very high, that’s why very few models of cordless vacuums can perform work for more than 20 minutes.
There are two types of cordless vacuums:
1. Stick vacuums are lightweight and are of a tall and slim design with a handle on the top
2. Handheld vacuums are of compact design made to clean small surfaces like sofas or car interior.
Both types of cordless vacuums usually cannot perform all the functions that ordinary vacuum cleaner offers. They have limited battery capacity and small head brush. So, it’s hard to clean large areas with such a portable device. Also, they are of quite limited suction power that much lesser than cord vacuums can provide. Almost all cordless vacuums are bagless. It means that they work with allergens not as efficient as they could work. Although some models use advanced HEPA filters, they can not offer 100% cleaning of large surfaces from allergens and bacteria.
The cordless vacuum cleaner cannot replace regular vacuums, but it can become an excellent and helpful addition to the traditional vacuum.

This infographic aims to recommend the best cordless vacuum for cleaning up pet hair. This design has a consistent color palette, and features icons and helpful illustrations. The text is lengthy, and data is often buried inside solid paragraphs rather than visualized. The chart graphic, which compares the specifications of 6 cordless vacuums, contains small text that is barely readable. The sections that follow provide details and illustrations of each model, accompanied with paragraphs of text and a few callouts that are highlighted by icons. While the stated purpose of this infographic is to recommend the best cordless vacuum for pet hair, the text doesn't include overall ratings to synthesize the information presented. Each review ends with a short section each model's faults, accompanied by a thumbs-down icon that causes visual confusion, as its position makes it seem like the author is bestowing an overall negative review. Overall, despite the incorporation of icons and illustrations, this infographic is rendered less effective by lengthy text and an absence of clear information synthesis. We'd give this an F.
