The HoLife HM036E is a cordless handheld vacuum. Unlike many other vacuums, it has a liquid nozzle attachment which allows it to clean wet messes such as spilled milk. However, we don't currently test this feature and the manufacturer notes that you need to thoroughly clean the vacuum afterward. That said, if you're looking to tackle dry debris around the home like dust or dirt, it has an outstanding performance on bare floors. It also does an overall good job on carpet, although it struggles a bit more with small and large debris.

The HoLife HM036E is good for low-pile carpet. It can pick up pet hair and most sand without an issue. However, it has a bit more trouble with finer debris like baking soda. While well-built, it has a few regular maintenance needs. On the upside, the HEPA filter is the only recurring cost.

The HoLife HM036E is a well-built handheld vacuum. Although it's made of plastic, it mostly feels sturdy.

Still, it's very easy to assemble and it comes ready to use, right out of the box.
This handheld vacuum is decently easy to maintain thanks to its simple design. However, there are still a few parts that need regular maintenance.
If you've cleaned up liquid debris, you must make sure to immediately empty the liquids and make sure the motor is clean and dry before charging it again. All parts that can be cleaned with water should be left to dry for at least 24 hours before putting them back in.
This handheld vacuum has one recurring cost. The HEPA filter needs to be replaced after three to four months or after 100 uses.
Note: There's a discrepancy in replacement time for the HEPA filter. The manual and paper instructions say that it needs to be replaced after three to four months. However, the manufacturer's website says six to eight months.
This handheld vacuum is easy to store as it sits on a rack to charge. It's compact and doesn't take up too much room, which is good if you want to store it in a closet or on your countertop. Unfortunately, it doesn't have any on-board storage for its tools and brushes.
The vacuum's dirt compartment is poor. It's quite small and debris can spill out of it since there's no cover or seal to help prevent debris or liquid from escaping. Luckily, there's a fill line indicator to let you know when it's full.
Since this is a cordless handheld vacuum, its range is only limited by the room left in its dirt compartment and its remaining battery life.

The HoLife HM036E has a couple of different variations. The original model comes with either a fabric or stainless steel HEPA filter. We tested the original variant that uses a fabric HEPA filter with this label. However, the manufacturer advertises that the fabric filter needs to be replaced after a certain amount of time while the stainless steel filter is designed to be reusable. It should also be noted that the fabric HEPA filter variant is also available in a few different colors and we expect them to perform similarly to our test unit.
There's also an upgraded variant available, which comes with a plastic hose connector that's advertised to help you get into hard-to-reach places. It uses a different material for its HEPA filter rather than using the fabric or stainless steel version of the original model. We don't know how the upgraded or stainless steel filter variants hold up.
If someone comes across a variant that's different from ours, let us know in the discussions and we'll update our review.
