If you want to buy a good quality vacuum cleaner that can handle the demands of your home without strain or breaking down, it makes sense to always go for brands you know and trust. That is mostly why the BH50010 cleaner is a great pick – the company behind it, Hoover, is one of the most well-known brands in the industry and has been so for decades.
Description and what to expect
This model is the first vacuum from the company that has a stick-style design and happens to offer WindTunnel Technology, which is a patented technology by the company. It is quite a difficult option to beat out, thanks to the use of the One Touch brush roll activation and the cordless design that allows you to clean your home without much strain.
The vacuum comes in a simple design and stands out because of its performance – even though it lacks the extensive attachments you would get in similar models. Because the price is also budget-friendly, it is quite difficult to ignore the value of the money that it gives.
In summary, if you are looking for a battery-powered stick vacuum cleaner that has a straightforward, simple design, this is the best pick for you.
If you are looking for a vacuum cleaner that has flashy looks and features, then this model will be a disappointment to you. The outlook is very basic and only has the intended features for cleaning, and none of the fancy attachments or designs that you might find in other cleaners.
The finish is black plastic with glossy silver, and there is some addition of metallic accents and the logo of the company in the front part.
While the design is quite simplistic and basic in its approach, the weight is quite heavy for a stick vacuum – it comes in at 7.3 pounds. Even if this is the case though, the cleaner does not have a cumbersome look to it.
This is among the simplest vacuum cleaners in terms of features that you can get, as it has a Li-ion battery and a charger included in the package. In order to monitor the power left, there is an LED status bar that informs you of the time left.
There are three operation options – on with brush roll and suction (for carpet cleaning), on with suction only (for bare floors or hardwood cleaning), and off. In addition, you can open the dust bin from the bottom section, and you can recline the handle quite low if you want to clean the spaces under your furniture.
It performs quite well in its cleaning, especially on bare and hardwood floors. The only issue here is the partial swivel of its head, which can make it awkward in cleaning some areas of the home.
In terms of intelligent design features, this is actually among the best you can get. In fact, it is among the quietest cleaners you can find – and even though the design is bulky compared to others, there are many that have a heavier weight and are noisy.
Even though this cleaner does not have a ton of accessories, it still has great suction and cleaning power. This is even more impressive when you consider the run time of 15 to 20 minutes compared with the shorter charging time of 3 hours, and it can clean a variety of messes with ease regardless of the floor surface you are dealing with.
There are plenty of attachments you can use here to perform many kinds of cleaning tasks, and this makes it much more than just a stick vacuum because you can use it as a handheld cleaner.
For people that prefer integrated hand vacuum cleaners, this is not one of the machines for you. Since it lacks a wide range of extra tools as well, it will not serve you much when it comes to cleaning areas like your upholstery – so it is better to have a smaller handheld vacuum for this case.
The cleaner also has a bag-less design, which makes it quite easy to empty out when you are done. In addition, the dustbin is transparent, and this allows you to quickly know when you should throw your debris and dirt in the trash can. The bin capacity is quite large as well, so you will not need to constantly empty it.
In many instances, you can vacuum an entire house with four or five rooms without emptying the bin. The only exceptions are when you are performing a deep clean, or have a lot of debris or pet hair – in this case, you should take all the dirt to your trash bin for disposal.
The cleaner has a limited warranty of two years and covers any original defects in the structure of the cleaner and the materials used. However, this warranty does not cover careless operations, accidental incidences, commercial use, repair by unauthorized agents or parties, and the usual wear and tear that happens when you use the machine.

If you are looking for a cordless vacuum cleaner but do not want to spend so much money on it, this is among the best picks you can find. As long as the battery life is not a major issue for you and your home has little traffic, it is enough to cover much of your home without much strain, and the cordless design means it is easy to move around throughout your cleaning time.
