The Hoover ONEPWR Cordless Hand Vacuum is a budget-friendly handheld vacuum. It's part of Hoover's ONEPWR range of cleaning appliances, which share a universally-compatible battery pack. It's lightweight, compact, and delivers outstanding cleaning performance on bare floors. Unfortunately, it has a very limited selection of tools and brushes, and its side-mounted exhaust can blow out a lot of fine, powdery material like baking soda while cleaning this kind of debris. Its handheld-only configuration and short battery life make it a poor fit for cleaning bigger spaces, but thankfully, its battery recharges charges quite quickly. If you're looking for a cordless vacuum to spot-clean bare surfaces, this is a good option.
The Hoover ONEPWR Cordless is great for bare floors. It clears pet hair as well as debris like rice and cereal without much of an issue, and suction performance remains relatively consistent as its dirt compartment fills on this kind of surface. It's also decently well-built and fairly easy to maintain, but its handheld-only design is ill-suited to clean under furniture. It also has a short battery life, though it doesn't take that long to recharge.
The Hoover ONEPWR Cordless is a decent option for low-pile carpet. It does a good job of cleaning pet hair as well as coarse debris on this kind of surface, but it can struggle a little more as its dirt compartment fills up, as some sand-like debris can come out of its nose instead of staying in its dust cup. Unfortunately, when cleaning fine debris, it can blow this material out of its exhausts instead of keeping it fully contained. Thankfully, it has a mostly sturdy construction and is fairly easy to maintain, with only one recurring cost.
The Hoover ONEPWR Cordless is alright for cleaning high-pile carpet. It clears most pet hair, but struggles a little more with coarse debris like sand, especially as its dirt compartment fills up. Fine material that you've just picked up can also get blasted out of its exhaust, which may necessitate the use of a particulate mask in some cases. While it's quite lightweight, it isn't well-suited to cleaning under low-lying obstructions like tables or couches, while its narrow nozzle can be a nuisance for cleaning upholstered couches. It also has a fairly short runtime, but its battery recharges quite quickly.
The Hoover ONEPWR Cordless is a great choice for pet owners. It does an excellent job of cleaning pet hair on most kinds of surfaces, and it's decently well-built and fairly easy to maintain, with only one part that needs to be replaced regularly. Unfortunately, it isn't equipped with an allergen-trapping HEPA filter, and it lacks a turbo brush to clear pet hair from upholstered surfaces.
The Hoover ONEPWR Cordless is excellent for cleaning stairs. It's lightweight, compact, and has a built-in carrying handle, so you should have no trouble moving it around. Its cordless design gives you an effectively unlimited range, and its all-plastic construction feels fairly sturdy for the most part. It does a superb job of cleaning bare floors but may struggle a little more with clearing debris on high-pile carpet due to its lack of a turbo brush.
The Hoover ONEPWR Cordless is great for cleaning the inside of your car. Its cordless design and included crevice cleaner let you easily tackle messes in tight corners, and it's small and light enough to be carried almost anywhere. Unfortunately, it doesn't have a turbo brush to clear messes from seat upholstery or carpeting. It's decently well-built and has a simple design that's easy to maintain, with few parts that need to be cleaned regularly.
The Hoover ONEPWR Cordless only has one variant: 'White', and you can see its label here.

The Hoover ONEPWR Cordless is a basic cordless handheld vacuum. It does an exceptional job of cleaning messes on bare floors and has a decently sturdy design that's easy to maintain, with few parts that need regular maintenance or replacement. Unfortunately, its suction performance drops on carpeted floors as its dirt compartment fills up, and fine debris can blow out of its exhausts when trying to clear this kind of debris, which can be very disruptive.

The Shark UltraCyclone Pet Pro+ is a better handheld vacuum than the Hoover ONEPWR Cordless Hand Vacuum. It's better-built, easier to maintain, easier to carry around, and comes with more tools and accessories, including a turbo brush to clear messes from upholstery. It also does a much better job of sucking up debris on carpeted floors. Meanwhile, the Hoover comes with a bigger dirt compartment and has a longer battery life while taking less time to charge.
The Black+Decker dustbuster Hand Vacuum and Hoover ONEPWR Cordless Hand Vacuum have different advantages, and one may suit you better depending on your needs. The Black+Decker has better build quality, lower recurring costs, a lighter body, and more tools and accessories, courtesy of its combination extension wand/crevice tool/hard bristle brush. However, the Hoover has a longer battery life, a shorter recharge time, and is notably more effective when it comes to cleaning pet hair on most surfaces.
The iRobot H1 and Hoover ONEPWR Cordless Hand Vacuum each have their advantages, and one might suit you better depending on your needs. The iRobot is better-built, comes with more tools and brushes, including a turbo brush, and delivers better performance on low and high-pile carpet. It also lasts longer in its least powerful suction mode, though it takes significantly longer to recharge than the Hoover. The Hoover also delivers better performance on bare floors, is easier to store, incurs fewer recurring costs, and is a little easier to maintain.
The Black+Decker dustbuster AdvancedClean+ Pet and Hoover ONEPWR Cordless Hand Vacuum are evenly-matched vacuums. The Black+Decker is lighter, has a slightly larger dirt compartment, and comes with a built-in crevice cleaner and turbo brush to deal with messes in tight corners or on upholstery. It also cleans better on high-pile carpet. That said, the Hoover has lower recurring costs, a longer battery life, substantially faster battery recharging times, and superior cleaning performance on bare floors and low-pile carpet.
The HoLife HM036E is more versatile than the Hoover ONEPWR Cordless Hand Vacuum. The HoLife is better-built, has a longer battery life, comes with more tools and an allergen-trapping filter, and delivers superior cleaning performance on all surfaces. It can also be used to clean wet messes, though we don't currently test that particular feature. The Hoover is easier to store and takes much less time to charge.
The RYOBI 18V One+ 3 Gal. Project Wet/Dry and Hoover ONEPWR Cordless Hand Vacuum are both handheld vacuums with swappable battery packs, but they target different uses. The RYOBI is a dedicated shop vacuum that can clear wet messes. It feels more sturdily built, is easier to maintain, comes with more tools, and delivers better performance on all surface types. Meanwhile, the Hoover is a much smaller, far more portable handheld vacuum that offers a similar 15-minute runtime but charges in little over half the time.
The Hoover ONEPWR Cordless is decently well-built. It has an all-plastic construction that feels quite sturdy overall, except for its dust cup, which feels like it could break if it's dropped or just over time, especially at the point where it clips onto the vacuum's main body. It has a relatively simple construction with few components, and set up out-of-the-box is as easy as fitting the battery into its slot. Unfortunately, its side-mounted exhaust can blow out fine, powdery debris like baking soda while sucking up this kind of material, to the point where it might be best to wear a particulate mask to avoid breathing in this kind of substance.
This vacuum is decently easy to maintain, courtesy of its simple design. That said, there are few parts that still require maintenance.
All parts that can be cleaned with water should be left to dry completely before putting them back in place.
The Hoover ONEPWR Cordless has decently low recurring costs, as its filter is the only disposable component. No exact service interval is specified, as the user manual only says that it should be replaced when necessary. It's worth noting that the industry-standard service life of comparable filters is anywhere between six to nine months. Also, while Hoover's website has the filter part number 440013763 listed on their website, it doesn't seem to be available for purchase in the model's parts and accessories section.
The Hoover ONEPWR Cordless has excellent storage capabilities. It's quite compact overall and has a storage rack on the underside of its dirt compartment for its crevice cleaning tool. It comes with a charging dock, but it only accommodates the removable battery, not the vacuum as a whole.
The Hoover ONEPWR Cordless has an effectively unlimited range as long as it has room left in its dirt compartment and sufficient battery life.
The Hoover ONEPWR Cordless is amazingly portable. It weighs very little and has an integrated carrying handle to make it easier to bring with you from room to room.
The Hoover ONEPWR Cordless has decent battery performance. Like the Hoover ONEPWR Evolve Pet, it's part of Hoover's ONEPWR range of products with swappable battery packs, though the 2.0 Ah battery pack that the hand vacuum comes with yields a shorter runtime than the 4.0 Ah battery that comes with the Evolve Pet. provides just under 15 minutes of continuous runtime on a single charge. The battery charges quite quickly, taking about 75 minutes to return to full capacity, which is much faster than other vacuums that have comparable battery life, such as the Shark UltraCyclone Pet Pro+. Unfortunately, you need to press a button on the battery pack to turn on its indicator lights, which show how much charge is left. If you aren't paying attention and forget to check, you can run out of battery without warning. When placed on its charging cradle, the indicator lights turn on one at a time, with all four lights turning solid white and then completely off once it's fully charged.
The Hoover ONEPWR Cordless is a simple vacuum with practically no extra features. There's an easily-accessible power button on its handle, which needs to be slid forward to turn the vacuum on.
The Hoover ONEPWR Cordless only comes with a crevice cleaner to tackle messes in tight corners. It fits into an onboard storage rack but can fall out when you're using the vacuum.
The Hoover ONEPWR Cordless has outstanding performance on bare floors. It clears pet hair as well as small and bulky debris like rice and cereal without an issue. Better still, performance remains consistent as its dirt compartment fills up, which is good if you have a large mess to deal with.
The Hoover ONEPWR Cordless offers good performance on low-pile carpet. It clears pet hair as well as coarse, sand-like material without too much of an issue, though it does struggle a little more as its dirt compartment fills up, with some sand falling out of its main nozzle.
Unfortunately, while it sucks up a good amount of fine debris, its side-mounted exhaust ports can blow out a substantial amount of fine debris instead of keeping it in the dust bin. If you deal with this kind of debris often, it might be best to wear a particle mask.
The Hoover ONEPWR Cordless has okay performance on high-pile carpet. It clears most pet hair and coarse debris, though it may struggle to suck up sand-like material as its dirt compartment fills up, with some spilling out of its nose.
This vacuum does an okay job of initially clearing fine material like baking soda, but its exhausts can blow this debris outwards instead of keeping it in the dust bin. If you need to deal with this kind of debris frequently, you might need to wear a particle mask while cleaning. Consider the Dyson Humdinger if you want a hand vacuum that performs better on this surface type.
The Hoover ONEPWR Cordless has mediocre maneuverability. Its handheld design is ill-suited to cleaning large sections of flooring or underneath couches and tables, and its crevice cleaner can fall out of its storage rack during normal operation. It doesn't come with a soft bristle brush, so you could scratch up furniture while trying to suck up debris. All of that said, its lightweight design makes it easy to maneuver around obstructions like electrical cords.
The Hoover ONEPWR Cordless doesn't have any automation features.
