Wyze Cordless Vacuum Review: Packs a budget-friendly punch

“Wyze sets the standard for what we expect from a budget-friendly cordless vacuum cleaner for the home.”

  • Incredibly low price

  • Double motors ensure powerful cleaning

  • Light weight makes it easy to use

  • Surprisingly good filter system

  • Many functions are missing

  • Shorter battery life

The market for cordless vacuum cleaners has exploded in the last year and is no longer dominated by rigidities like Dyson, Shark, Bissel, Samsung or LG. New models from these renowned brands can typically cost anywhere from $ 350 to $ 500 or more. However, there are companies like Roborock and Tineco who are launching new models to take a piece of the pie – with affordable prices a priority.

The Wyze Cordless Vacuum Cleaner is the latest in affordable cordless vacuum cleaner. It costs $ 150 but is currently available for pre-order for $ 119. There is a hard limit of 50,000 pre-order units, but at the time of writing, there are more than 29,000 available. While the Wyze Cordless Vacuum trades in more advanced features for a much lower price, it still scores admirably when compared to the competition and, as Wyze always has, fills a void in the budget market that makes it appealing to a wide range of users.

Design: light but powerful

The Wyze cordless vacuum cleaner weighs just 2.8 pounds and is light enough for almost anyone to pick up and use for extended periods of time. Despite this low weight, it does not save on performance. A pair of motors delivers 150 air watts (AW) or 24,000 Pascal (Pa) suction power.

The brushless motor design reaches 110,000 RPM and has less friction – resulting in longer battery life. An additional 9,500 rpm in the brush head provide additional cleaning power and were specially developed to collect animal hair. As the owner of a cat who has lost so much hair that it should be bald, I have to agree. The cordless Wyze vacuum cleaner does a great job removing pet hair from the carpet and couch.

There are different energy modes, but the standard is Eco mode, which allows 50 minutes of cleaning time. If you buy a different battery, it can be swapped out in no time for longer cleaning sessions. Of course, the eco mode delivers less performance overall. Compared to other models, the run time is shorter, which can make it difficult to clean an entire house in one go. The eco mode offers the user a suction power of 7,000 Pa. Medium offers up to 15,000 Pa suction power and the turbo mode delivers the full, promised 24,000 Pa at the expense of battery life.

Accessories: a lot to do

A vacuum cleaner is only as good as its best accessories. After all, there is only so much you can do with a standard vacuum head. The good news is that the Wyze cordless vacuum cleaner comes with a variety of different accessories that you can use to clean almost anywhere in your home or vehicle.

The grouting tool reaches corners and crevices, just like under the kitchen cupboards. The brush tool loosens dirt and dust and sucks it directly into the vacuum cleaner. I found it particularly useful for dusting as the bristles are soft enough to remove dust from around the TV without scratching the screen.

The really standout accessory, however, is the primary brush head. Although it offers a lot of additional cleaning power, it also stands out for another reason: Six forward-facing LEDs in the head. This extra light will illuminate dust and debris on your floor to make sure you don’t miss a point.

This is ideal for vacuuming under furniture. All dust bunnies that gather under the recliner and couch are easy to see with these lights. Of course, that’s not always a good thing – you might be shocked by how dirty some parts of your home are.

Performance: Better air quality

Vacuuming may make your floors a little cleaner, but it’s practically useless if it pollutes your air quality. While many high-end vacuums offer incredible filtration systems, this isn’t something you would expect from a budget model. This is how the Wyze cordless vacuum cleaner surprises.

It offers a three-stage filter system that starts with the vacuum cyclone. This cyclone separates dirt based on particle size. Then a large metal sieve separates the larger particles such as dust and hair.

The final stage of the filtration process is a HEPA filter that removes up to 99.99% of particles as small as 0.3 microns. This results in much cleaner air and helps reduce the amount of allergens that get kicked up when vacuuming. After you’ve finished vacuuming, you can empty the trash can with one finger by pulling the lever. You don’t have to clean the vacuum cleaner every time, but you can increase the filter’s longevity and effectiveness by cleaning it regularly.

Both the dust cup and the filter can be removed and cleaned. In fact, the entire Wyze cordless vacuum cleaner has a modular design that makes it easy to maintain. There’s even a built-in filter brush that you can rotate to knock dust off the filter and into the bin.

Our opinion

The Wyze cordless vacuum cleaner is a solid purchase, especially at its discounted $ 119 price point. Even at the normal retail price of $ 150, it offers incredible value and performance. It might not have an app or a lot of extra features, but its powerful cleaning features and air filtration make it a worthwhile investment.

Are there any better alternatives?

From a budget standpoint, nothing comes close to the Wyze Cordless vacuum cleaner. It offers great performance at one of the lowest prices we’ve ever seen. If you are looking for an alternative, Shark Rocket cordless vacuum cleaner is a $ 200 option. If you’re looking for a high-end option this is the one Roborock H7 has a lot more features, longer cleaning time, and more accessories for $ 500.

How long it will take?

With its lower weight, the Wyze cordless vacuum cleaner feels more fragile than higher-priced models, but not cheap. As long as the vacuum cleaner is not stored in direct sunlight and is cleaned regularly, it should last for many years. At the very least, it comes with a one-year limited warranty that covers it for defects.

Should you buy it?

Yes. If you’re looking for an affordable vacuum cleaner for small jobs around the house, it’s hard to beat.
