Let’s Talk About Cordless Backpack Vacuum Cleaners

Looking for a vacuum that’s as easy to carry as your backpack and packs a powerful punch? Enter the world of cordless backpack vacuum cleaners, a hidden gem that many folks don’t even know exists!

While backpack vacuums are often associated with commercial use, the cordless versions are here to change the game. In this post, we’re lifting the curtain on these battery-powered wonders, exploring why they might just be your new cleaning companion, whether for personal use or commercial purposes.

If you’ve never considered a cordless backpack vacuum, or even knew they were a thing, stay with me as we unravel the possibilities and perks of these nimble, high-performance cleaning machines. Your cleaning routine might never be the same again!

Who Are They For?

The cordless backpack vacuums are ideal for anyone with a large home, especially if you have stairs. There is nothing more frustrating then unplugging your vacuum to clean a new section of the home. When you’re in the mood to clean you don’t want to get out of the mood.

These vacuums are also great for commercial use too. Sometimes you’ll clean a place with very few outlets or outlets that can’t handle the powered needed to run a modern-day vacuum cleaner. I even have seen these cordless vacuums being used in ECO-friendly cleaning businesses since they can charge by solar or other renewable sources where they’re kept. That’s a cool business model if you ask me.

These cordless backpack vacuums are also great for people who just hate dealing with power cords. We’ll talk a little more about this below.

Cleaning Stairs

The biggest perks have got to be the ability to clean stairs without having to worry about a heavy upright vacuum falling. The vacuum is on your back and out of the way.

When it’s on your back your a cleaning machine and cleaning the entire home is quite easy.

Battery Life

The best thing about many of these cordless backpack vacuum cleaners is that some of them have great battery life.

Many cordless vacuums give other cordless vacuums a bad rap, but battery-powered backpack vacuums can have plenty of run time and power. Just check the Makita XCV10PTX Backpack Vacuum (Amazon Link Ad) here as it has a run time of about 1 hour on a full charge. That’s impressive!

No Annoying Long Power cords

Another significant aspect of a cordless backpack vacuum is that you don’t have to worry about wrapping up or storing the power cord.

In the post I wrote about on the wired backpack vacuums, having the long power cord was a huge feature, but what is not so great is storing away the cord. With these cordless models, you just plug it in as you would plug in your phone and that’s it. So much easier than wrapping up a long extension cord or worrying about people tripping over the cord when I’m working.

Perfect for Commerical Use

Many people use these cordless backpack models for commercial use. Sometimes you’re not near a plug, or the place you clean professionally doesn’t allow access to the plugs.

Or some homes are so old that they can’t handle the power that most modern-day vacuum cleaners need so they have to use cordless vacuums for cleaning. If you have an older home that can’t handle the amps that a modern-day vacuum needs then this can be a great option.

Anything Else To Consider?

Yes! If you have pets or long hair, then I recommend you get a carpet rake like this one here (Amazon Link Ad) to use with your vacuum cleaner. Carpet rakes are perfect for combing the hair and other debris trapped in the carpet. This helps your vacuum cleaner out and to me makes the carpet feel cleaner. I would not use a carpet rake on loop carpets.

What Do I Recommend?

I like the Hoover Commercial Lightweight Backpack Vacuum Cleaner (Amazon Link Ad). What I love about it is how light it is compared to other backpack vacuums models like it.

The best thing to do is buy a good and long extension cord and go to town cleaning.
