Like many Electrolux vacuum reviews state, the Electrolux Ergorapido Lithium Ion 2-1 Stick and Handheld Vacuum is a stand-out option for light cleaning. It offers cordless operation and has a low 5.5 lb. weight. You’ll be able to lift this vacuum easily up stairs and into other areas of your home with ease.
Compared to other cordless stick vacuum reviews, the Electrolux Ergorapido Lithium Ion 2 in 1 Stick and Handheld Vacuum offers some unique features. These may give you a reason to consider investing in this vacuum versus others. For starters, it comes with a patented self-cleaning brushroll which allows you to instantly untangle hair that has accumulated on the brush head.
Additionally, the Electrolux Ergorapido Lithium Ion 2 in 1 Stick and Handheld Vacuum offers 2-in-1 operation. This additional handheld vac option is built right into the body of the machine. You can literally use the handheld as you need it during the course of using the vacuum.
The vacuum is specifically designed for operation on bare floors and is a convenient tool to clean up messes quickly. It maneuvers relatively easily with 180 degrees of rotation built right into the device. You’ll be able to get around obstacles and clean up spills as well as dirt messes with ease.
The vacuum is also engineered to stand up on its own, making it easy to pause during cleaning. LED lights cap off the design of the vacuum.
Operation of the Electrolux Ergorapido Lithium Ion 2-1 Stick and Handheld Vacuum uses a mid-range 14.4-volt Lithium-ion battery. This provides a generous runtime of 30 minutes, which is useful to do some deep cleaning or to clean several rooms at once. The battery needs four hours to charge, which is pretty typical of cordless stick vacuums.
Dirt is collected in a bagless canister which includes an allergen filter that is washable. Some handheld vacuum cleaner reviews indicate the filter assembly is located behind the handheld vac. This may prove challenging when trying to clean it. You literally have to use your hands to dig it out, which can be messy.
The Electrolux Ergorapido Lithium Ion 2-1 Stick and Handheld Vacuum does come with a series of accessories that will make cleaning your home more convenient. You’ll find the crevice tool allows you to get into those deep pocket areas of your home or car.
A dusting brush is also provided, so you can clean spaces which need more careful cleaning. Both accessory tools attach right to the Electrolux Ergorapido Lithium Ion 2 in 1 Stick and Handheld Vacuum, making it easy to grab and use them as you need them.
The Electrolux Ergorapido Lithium Ion 2 in 1 Stick and Handheld Vacuum is an averagely priced vacuum. It is one of the more expensive models offered by Electrolux, but it does have some features the others in this vacuum feature class are remiss in offering.
When you consider the vacuum really offers two cleaning units in one, it is a solid investment to clean your bare floor surfaces. It also comes with a two-year warranty.
For this Electrolux Ergorapido review, we wanted to applaud the Electrolux Ergorapido Lithium Ion 2 in 1 Stick and Handheld Vacuum for offering a longer duration runtime. While at 30 minutes, it is not the longest offered in the market, it sure stacks up on the high end of time durations. This gives you plenty of time to clean a good portion of your home without worrying about losing a charge.
The fact that the Electrolux Ergorapido Lithium Ion 2 in 1 Stick and Handheld Vacuum weighs a light 5.5 lb., it is relatively easy to move around. When you couple this with its 180-degree maneuverability, you have an easy to steer vacuum which we really appreciate. It makes hauling this vacuum easier, so you may use it more.
We also like the vacuum offered a 2-in-1 operation with a handheld vac built right into the façade of the device. You can simply detach it for use anytime you need it. It is a nice bonus to have for quick cleanup of any type of mess. And, the fact that this vacuum is cordless makes using it even more enjoyable. There is no cord to contend with or trip over.
While we found the Electrolux Ergorapido Lithium Ion 2 in 1 Stick and Handheld Vacuum to be a solid vacuum for the money, for this Electrolux Ergorapido review we wanted to be sure to mention a few minor drawbacks. We were slightly disappointed with the fact that this vacuum is only for bare floor use. It would have been a much more capable vacuum if it also worked on carpets. But, it would be a handy machine to have on hand in your kitchen to clean up messes quickly.
We also wish there was an easier way to access the filter of the vacuum. Having to remove the handheld vac seems like an extra step. The manufacturer has recommended cleaning the filter only once every three months, so it is not too much of a hassle.
If your home is primarily made up of hard surfaces, you’ll find that the Electrolux Ergorapido Lithium Ion 2-1 Stick and Handheld Vacuum will work well on these surfaces. Strictly designed to clean hard floors, this vacuum offers plenty of runtime on a single battery charge and is a nice mid-range option for the money.
Cordless, lightweight, and easy to maneuver - the Electrolux Ergorapido 2 in 1 Vacuum is perfectly designed for hard floors.
