I recently was given the opportunity to try the Hoover Platinum Collection Cordless Stick Vac thanks to Hoover. Since I'm a practical gift type of girl I thought this would be perfect to feature in my Holiday Gift Guide. Since I hate vacuuming I am always looking for an easy way out and because the Cordless Stick Vac is extremely light weight and has no cord it is perfect for my 5 year old to vacuum for me! Here is some information from their site:
The Hoover Platinum Collection™ Cordless Stick Vacuum combines cordless convenience with powerful upright performance. Includes Hoover's best-in-class six year limited warranty on vacuum and two year limited warranty on battery and charger.
Available at these and other retailers: Walmart, Best Buy, Target
* Windtunnel Technology™ and cyclonic filtration combine to outperform traditional corded uprights on hard floors.*
Fade Free Lithium-Ion Power
* Fade Free Power: Interchangeable 18 Volt Lithium Ion battery ensures the battery sustains power until it is completely drained.
* First cordless stick vacuum with Hoover's patented WindTunnel Technology™, which utilizes 3 suction tunnels to lift and remove even the hidden dirt on carpet.**
One Step Cleaning
* One-touch Brushroll activation makes easy transition from hard floors to carpets.
* Edge Cleaning Bristles allow for closer access to walls and corners.
* Low Profile Base and Extreme Recline Handle allow for easy access under furniture.
* Unique Wide Mouth Opening makes quick work of vacuuming cereal, pet food, etc.
* Stands like an upright. No leaning it on walls.
Battery Fuel Gauge
* Battery Fuel Gauge: Battery Level Indicator instantly registers remaining battery life.
* Powered by an ENERGY STAR qualified battery charger.
* Per ASTM F2607
** Per ASTM F608
Now, here are the things that I love about it:
It easily transitions between hardwood floors and carpet with a flick of a switch.
It is ultra light.
I never have to worry about running over the cord by mistake.
It is bag-less and no one ever has the excuse of running out of vacuum cleaner bags.
It is super easy to clean.
It has wind tunnel power that completely picks up dog hair from my 3 dogs with one easy pass.
Here is where I think Hoover can make some improvements:
It is difficult to maneuver on stairs.
That is the only negative thing I can think of. I honestly have no clue how I lived without this!
