Top 5 Handheld Vacuums

Next time you go to the supermarket, take a walk down the cleaning aisle and you’ll notice just how many vacuum options there are. What makes a good handheld vacuum is ease of use - how easily and how long you can move around the room and clean messes.

Thankfully, we are here to help you find the best handheld vacuum for your specific needs.. In finding you the best vacuum possible we have measured weight, ease of cleanup, battery life, cord/cordless, and other special features at all different price ranges. One of these options is sure to meet all your cleaning needs.

5  Dyson V6 Trigger

The Dyson V6 Trigger is one of our highest powered, and longest lasting options on the list. This vacuum is cordless, with a battery that lasts for 20 minutes of continuous cleaning. It also provides a Max power mode with a 6 minute battery life for those more difficult messes.

The Dyson V6 only weighs 3.4 pounds and has a 2 Tier Radial cyclones for small dust collection. It is designed to be a comfortable fit in your hand for easy handling. There is also a simple one button press clean up. If you can stomach the somewhat expensive prices tag, the Dyson V6 is for you.

Dirt Devil’s Scorpion model is corded vacuum that’s an absolute bargain. This vacuum’s cord is 16 feet long, plenty for more living rooms and stair cases. It also comes with their Quick Flip Crevice Tool that lets you pick up food or dirt from tight spots like chair cushions.

The Dirt Devil Scorpion’s 7 amp motor means there is hardly any kind of dry mess this vacuum won’t pick up. And with its three year warranty (most Vacuums have only a 2 or 1 year) there is no downside to this red beauty.


The Black & Decker CHV1410L is powerfully convenient. Their advertiser claim that this vacuum can hold a charge for 18 months, this is a bit mislead since it is only true if you don’t use the vacuum for 18 months. However, their battery is quite good, with it’s efficient Smart Charge Technology meaning plenty of time for clean-up.

The CHV1410L has a clear bagless dirt bowl, which is useful for seeing when you need to clean. The whole package comes with two washable filters, a Crevice Tool, a brush, and your charging base.

2  Eureka EasyClean 71B

The Eureka EasyClean is the best corded vacuum on the market. While its 5.5 amp motor has a little less power than the Dirt Devil’s 7 amps, this vacuum easily makes up for it with its 20 foot long cord and crevice tool.

The Eureka Easy Clean also comes with Riser Visor nozzle, which is a clear plastic cover that lets you clean horizontal and vertical stairs with ease. The cord wraps easily around the vacuum and there’s a 1 year warranty. This vacuum won’t disappoint.


The Black & Decker BDH2020FLFH is unquestionably the best handheld vacuum. No other vacuums come with more quality useful options than this one. It has a four foot extendable hose, a brush for Pet mess, and a stick attachment with pivoting floor head.

This vacuum comes with a removable removable bowl, a charging base, and a 20V lithium battery doesn’t fade over time. Pro tip: there are similar models to this, check out Target or Lowes as they may have a cheaper deal for a similar model, the BDH2020FL.


If you’re cleaning an area that is fairly small, go with the corded Eureka or the Dirt Devil so as to not worry about having to charge batteries. Of course, the whole point of having a vacuum is convenience, so any feature that isn’t convenient is a problem. So we believe that any one of these options would be a great addition to your home.
