The JASHEN V16 is a cordless stick/handheld vacuum with fair cleaning performance on a variety of surfaces. It excels at sucking up pet hair on everything from linoleum to shag carpeting, has good battery life, and can be easily converted into a handheld vacuum to clean hard-to-reach places, similar to the Dyson Cyclone V10 Absolute. It's also fairly simple to take apart and comes with two interchangeable brushrolls, one for bare floors and one for carpets. Unfortunately, it struggles to pick up large debris, as they can get trapped and prevent the vacuum from sucking up any other material. It also feels quite plasticky and has a small, fragile dirt compartment that needs to be emptied frequently. Still, if you're a pet owner looking for a vacuum that can easily deal with shed hair, this is a good choice.

Our Verdict

6.4 Bare Floor

The JASHEN V16 is mediocre for bare floors. Larger debris like cereal can get stuck in the vacuum head, wand, and dirt compartment entry, though it's quite effective in cleaning pet hair and smaller material. It also comes with a removable soft brushroll for bare floors, which is handy. Unfortunately, many parts require regular maintenance. Thankfully, its bagless design and washable HEPA filter mean that recurring costs are virtually nil. Battery performance is also good overall, and you can keep an eye on charge status via a battery-mounted LED display.

Pros
  • Virtually no recurring costs.
  • Exceptional pet hair cleaning capability.
  • Good battery performance.
Cons
  • Larger debris can get stuck in wand and near dirt compartment.
  • Quite a few parts that require regular maintenance.
  • Plasticky build quality.
6.9 Low-Pile Carpet

The JASHEN V16 is adequate for cleaning low-pile carpet. It has no trouble picking up pet hair and does a decent job of sucking up material like sand. That said, it struggles more with finer particles, such as baking soda. It's also quite plasticky in feel and has quite a few parts that need to be taken care of regularly, though it's quite simple to take apart and put back together. It also comes with a removable brushroll meant for carpeted surfaces. Thankfully, there are virtually no recurring costs to worry about since this vacuum has a non-disposable HEPA filter and no dirtbag.

Pros
  • Virtually no recurring costs.
  • Exceptional pet hair cleaning capability.
  • Good battery performance.
Cons
  • Quite a few parts that require regular maintenance.
  • Struggles with small debris.
  • Plasticky build quality.
6.7 High-Pile Carpet

The JASHEN V16 is alright for high-pile carpet. Similar to its performance on low-pile carpet, it sucks up pet hair without issue, but it may take quite a few passes to clear larger debris like sand. It struggles even more with finer particles, like baking soda. That said, thanks to its bagless design and non-disposable filter, recurring costs are kept to a minimum. The vacuum also comes with a dedicated brushroll for cleaning carpets. Unfortunately, many parts need regular maintenance.

Pros
  • Virtually no recurring costs.
  • Exceptional pet hair cleaning capability.
  • Good battery performance.
Cons
  • Quite a few parts that require regular maintenance.
  • Struggles with small debris.
  • Plasticky build quality.
9.1 Pets

The JASHEN V16 is outstanding for pets. It has no trouble picking up pet hair, regardless of surface, and has a HEPA filter to help trap allergens as you clean. It has a simple-to-assemble design that lets you quickly remove the vacuum head's brushroll and remove hair wraps, though quite a few parts need regular cleaning. The vacuum also comes with a turbo brush to help clean pet hair from upholstery.

Pros
  • Virtually no recurring costs.
  • Exceptional pet hair cleaning capability.
  • Removable brushroll.
  • Good battery performance.
Cons
  • Quite a few parts that require regular maintenance.
  • Plasticky build quality.
8.7 Stairs

The JASHEN V16 is excellent for cleaning stairs. It employs a lightweight cordless design that's easy to carry around without the worry of tripping over a power cable, plus it's quite simple to convert it into a handheld vacuum to reach tight spots. It also comes with a turbo brush to help make cleaning tasks a little easier. That said, it may struggle to pick up large debris, such as cereal, which can get stuck and prevent the vacuum from picking up debris.

Pros
  • Lightweight design.
  • Virtually no recurring costs.
  • Exceptional pet hair cleaning capability.
  • Good battery performance.
Cons
  • Larger debris can get stuck in wand and near dirt compartment.
  • Plasticky build quality.
8.2 Cars

The JASHEN V16 is great for cars. It can be used as a lightweight handheld vacuum and comes with quite a few cleaning tools to help you clean tight spaces, including a turbo brush, crevice tool, and an upholstery cleaner. Unfortunately, while it shouldn't have any issues in picking up pet hair, it may struggle more with large debris and messes that involve finer powder, like baking soda.

Pros
  • Lightweight design.
  • Virtually no recurring costs.
  • Exceptional pet hair cleaning capability.
  • Good battery performance.
Cons
  • Plasticky build quality.

Build Quality

The JASHEN V16's build quality is alright. It's almost entirely made of plastic with the exception of the wand, which has a lightweight metal construction. Overall, it doesn't feel all that sturdy, especially the dirt compartment, which could crack if it's dropped.

That said, the vacuum itself is quite easy to take apart and put back together, as all of its parts clip onto one another.

User Maintenance

The JASHEN V16 is fairly easy to maintain, with a design that makes it easy to access its various components. However, there are a lot of parts that need to be taken care of regularly.

  • Dirt compartment: The dirt compartment can be unlatched from the main body of the vacuum by pressing the release buttons on the sides of the vacuum. It needs to be emptied fairly frequently due to its small size and can be rinsed out with water.
  • HEPA filter: The HEPA filter is located inside the dirt compartment. An indicator light on the battery's LED display will turn on to tell you when it needs to be washed.
  • Brushrolls: The soft and carpet brushrolls are interchangeable in the vacuum head. You can remove either the same way by pressing release tabs on the brushrolls' sides. You can clear debris by hand, remove tangled hair with scissors, and rinse them with water.
  • Turbo brush: You can remove the mini brushroll from the turbo brush tool with a flat-sided screwdriver or a coin. It can be cleared of debris when needed.

All parts that can be cleaned with water should be left to dry for at least 24 hours before putting them back in the vacuum.

The JASHEN V16 cordless vacuum cleaner has virtually no recurring costs, which is outstanding. There are no dirtbags to replace and the HEPA filter shouldn't need to be changed so long as it's properly taken care of. However, should you need them, replacement parts are available on JASHEN's Amazon store page.

The JASHEN V16 cordless vacuum cleaner has good battery performance. It lasts just under 15 minutes if you run it continuously in its high-power 'MAX' mode with the wand and bare floor soft brushroll attached. That can extend to over 40 minutes if you use it more conservatively. An LED display on the back of the battery makes it easy to know when you're running out of charge. That said, it takes roughly 3.5 hours to completely recharge the removable battery, which is long.

The JASHEN V16 cordless vacuum cleaner has a few extra features. There's an LED display on the back of the battery that shows the current charge status and indicates whether or not the HEPA filter needs cleaning. There are three different power settings: 'MIN', 'MED', and 'MAX'. The vacuum head can be configured to suit different surfaces. If you're cleaning bare floors, you can insert the soft brushroll and pull back a rubber bumper in the vacuum head to suck up larger debris. If you're cleaning on carpet, you can insert the carpet brushroll into the vacuum head and pull the bumper to generate more suction power. There's also an LED headlight to help you see in darker places, but it isn't especially bright.

The JASHEN V16 cordless vacuum cleaner has disappointing performance on bare floors. While it has no trouble picking up pet hair and small debris like rice, it has a lot of trouble clearing larger material like cereal. Due to various parts' narrow width, large debris can become trapped at the entry to the brushroll, inside the wand, and at the entry to the dirt compartment, meaning that almost no material is sucked up.

The JASHEN V16 is alright on low pile carpet. It clears pet hair without an issue and does a decent job of picking up larger debris like sand even when the dirt compartment is pretty full. However, it struggles a lot more with smaller, finer material like baking soda.

The JASHEN V16 has satisfactory maneuverability. Its light weight makes it easy to carry around while its different tools can be quickly clipped on. It's also quite simple to convert the vacuum into its handheld configuration. Unfortunately, the vacuum handle and battery can get in the way when cleaning under low-lying tables. The vacuum head's LED headlight isn't all that bright, which may be annoying when cleaning poorly-lit areas. It's also possible for the vacuum head to get stuck on rug tassels when using the carpet brushroll.

Compared to other vacuums

The JASHEN V16 is a cordless vacuum with fair overall cleaning performance, with a stick/handheld design similar to the Dyson V8 Animal. It does best with pet hair and comes with a fairly large assortment of tools and brushes. Its bagless design and non-disposable filters mean that it incurs virtually no recurring costs, but a few parts need regular maintenance. Compared to rivals like the Dyson Cyclone V10 Absolute, the V16 struggles to pick up large and small debris, particularly on carpet. If you're looking for more options, take a look at our list of recommendations of the best cordless vacuums, the best vacuums for pet hair, and the best vacuums.

Shark Rocket Pet Pro

The Shark Rocket Pet Pro is a better overall stick/handheld vacuum than the JASHEN V16. The Shark performs better on bare floor as well as low and high-pile carpet, feels sturdier, has a larger dirt compartment, and recharges much faster. It's also far more maneuverable. That said, the JASHEN comes with more tools and brushes, not to mention a vacuum rack station to store said tools and brushes when it's not in use.

Dyson V7 Animal

The Dyson V7 Animal is a more versatile vacuum than the JASHEN V16. The Dyson doesn't struggle nearly as much when it comes to picking up large and small debris on all surface types, it's lighter in the hand, and feels easier to maneuver. Meanwhile, the JASHEN lasts longer off a single charge and picks up slightly more pet hair.

Dyson Cyclone V10 Absolute

The Dyson Cyclone V10 Absolute does better in more situations than the JASHEN V16. The Dyson is more effective at picking up all kinds of debris on everything from hardwood floors to shag carpeting, comes with more tools and accessories, and recharges much faster. The JASHEN, meanwhile, is a little bit lighter and has fewer parts that require regular maintenance.

Dyson V8 Animal

The Dyson V8 Animal is a better vacuum for most scenarios than the JASHEN V16. The Dyson delivers stronger performance on all surface types, especially in regards to large debris. It's also lighter and easier to carry around, and more maneuverable too. However, the JASHEN has a longer minimum battery life and recharges slightly faster.
