When it was time to run this dustbuster through the mess test, its powerful suction surprised us, and it seemed to inhale everything in its path. Thanks to the large dust bin, we didn’t have to run to the trash can mid-test—it sucked up all the debris from every surface and still had room for more. This dustbuster also excelled in the maneuverability test, and we were able to run it along baseboards, over and around a coffee table, and in between couch cushions with ease. On top of its reliable performance, the extra-large dust bin is easy to empty and mess-free. There’s lots to like about the BLACK+DECKER dustbuster, which we quickly discovered during testing.

Its useful accessories make vacuuming easy; there’s an extension hose for reaching into awkward spaces and a pet tool to make your fluffball’s fur disappear. While this is necessary for the vacuum to maintain its compact form factor, you may have to empty it mid-way through a job if cleaning shark canister vacuum up a lot of debris. Its 15.7″ length and 6.1″ height are bigger than some other units we have tested, but by no means is this a large handheld unit. We considered the Shark UltraCyclone Pet Pro+ but were put off by its poor airflow and suction, as well as its six-hour charge time.

Pet hair is easily lifted and removed from all indoor surfaces and additional accessories allow users to tackle an even wider range of messes with just a quick swap of the tool. All things considered, this handheld vacuum could be an excellent option for both pet owners and those who need a quick fix vacuum. The Shark Pet Perfect 2 handheld vacuum is built in a tubular shape with a simple purple and black aesthetic. At the nose of the vacuum is a slot where one of three cleaning tools (crevice tool, pet hair tool, dusting brush) can be inserted for a more specific cleaning style.

It has two modes—hard floor and carpet—and it also converts to a handheld vacuum. A powerful, ultra-lightweight cordless hand vacuum for carpet, upholstery, bare floor cleaning, and more. Includes rechargeable 15.6V battery and a rubberized hand grip for comfortable handling. Use the Motorized Pet Brush to pick up embedded pet hair, and then store the vacuum on the convenient wall mount.

This tiny, lightweight vacuum checked almost all of the boxes for an ideal handheld unit, and its small size and clever attachments make it an excellent choice for cleaning home office surfaces. It weighs only 1 pound, and the handle is easy to grip when zapping up multiple messes. Even though it’s small, the dust bin is surprisingly large in proportion. When it came time to empty the dust bin, the process was incredibly simple and mess-free. The filter came out with no issues, which is a big perk when it comes to frequent use.

In our experience, HEPA filters are less common in dustbusters than in the best full-size vacuums, so you may want to consider this as you shop. HEPA stands for “high-efficiency particulate air,” and a HEPA filter can remove over 99 percent of dust, pollen, mold, bacteria, and other small airborne particles. The other potential downside we encountered in testing was the small dustbin, which we had to empty seven times in our testing. Overall though, there are more pros than cons to this machine, and if you fancy the extra information in the display, we think you’ll enjoy using it. The end of our efforts is the thoroughly vetted list of tried-and-true recommendations you’ll find below. Before investing in a handheld model, check your current vacuum’s functionalities as some cordless designs double up as handhelds, so you may have one already.

For home use though, it’s well designed, easy to place on the charging base and has clear and easily accessible controls. Despite all its benefits and being one of the best Shark handheld vacuums, the WV201 is not without its drawbacks. Although the CHV1410L suffers from the same hand-heaviness as most handheld vacuums do, we’ve found it comfortable enough to maneuver. At 2.6 pounds, it is comparably light, and its curved, closed handle allows for an easy grip.
