The Wyze Cordless Vacuum is a basic entry-level cordless stick vacuum. Similar to the other vacuums in Wyze's lineup, the Wyze Robot Vacuum and Wyze Handheld Vacuum, it packs a lot of features into a budget-friendly package, including HEPA filtration, a relatively powerful suction motor, and an LED info display at the back of its body. It's also very lightweight, making it a cinch to maneuver in tight spots. However, that affordable price point is reflected in its somewhat fragile build quality.
The Wyze Cordless Vacuum is good for cleaning bare floors. It does a superb job of cleaning pet hair and small debris like rice. However, while it cleans the majority of bulky material like cereal, this type of debris can still get stuck at the entry of its dirt compartment or in its cyclone. There are also quite a few components that need regular cleaning. Still, it's easy to maneuver, incurs virtually no recurring costs, and offers decent overall battery performance.
The Wyze Cordless Vacuum is a great option for low-pile carpet. It sucks up pet hair as well as fine and large debris with very little difficulty. It's easy to maneuver and offers decent battery performance in lower power settings. That said, it has many parts that need periodic cleaning and some components that feel a little fragile.
The Wyze Cordless Vacuum is great for cleaning high-pile carpet. It's very effective in sucking up pet hair, not to mention fine and large debris. It also incurs virtually no recurring costs, though it does have a couple of parts that need regular cleaning. Its lightweight construction isn't the sturdiest, but it's very lightweight and consequently quite maneuverable. However, it lacks a brushroll on/off switch, so it can occasionally get stuck on high-pile carpets or rug tassels.
The Wyze Cordless Vacuum is a decent option for dealing with pet hair. It sucks up pet hair without issue on most floor types and has an allergen-trapping HEPA filter. You can remove its brushroll for easier clearing of hair wraps. Unfortunately, some parts of its mainly plastic construction feel flimsy, and many components need regular cleaning. On the downside, it doesn't come bundled with a turbo brush, and its upholstery and crevice tools are impractical for cleaning larger upholstered surfaces.
The Wyze Cordless Vacuum is excellent for vacuuming staircases. Its lightweight cordless design makes it easy to carry up and down long flights of stairs, and you can quickly reconfigure it into a handheld vacuum to clean tight spots. It delivers great overall performance on a mix of surface types too. Some parts of its mainly plastic construction feel a little fragile.
The Wyze Cordless Vacuum is a great option for vacuuming the inside of your car. It can be reconfigured into a compact handheld vacuum and delivers impressive performance on low-pile carpet. Its cordless design allows you to clean all parts of your car, even if you're parked far from any electrical outlets, and its lightweight construction makes it easy to pick up and carry. It comes with a combination upholstery tool/soft bristle brush and a dedicated crevice tool for clearing debris in tight corners. While a motorized turbo brush isn't included in the box, one can be purchased separately.
The Wyze Cordless Vacuum isn't intended to clean workshops. It can't deal with liquid spills, and heavier, harsher workshop debris like wood or metal shavings can damage its internals.
The Wyze Cordless Vacuum is only available in one color variant: 'Steel Grey with Wyze green accents', and you can see our test unit's label here.
Let us know in the discussions if you come across another variant, and we'll update our review.
The Wyze Cordless Vacuum is a basic, budget-friendly cordless stick vacuum. It comprehensively outperforms relatively affordable alternatives like the JASHEN V16 or Simplicity S65 on most surface types and is very lightweight and easy to maneuver. However, it isn't the best choice for dealing with bulky debris like cereal, which can get stuck in its cyclone.
The Dyson V8 and the Wyze Cordless Vacuum each have their advantages, so one may suit you better than the other, depending on your needs. The Dyson comes with more tools and brushes in the box and delivers better performance on bare floors and low-pile carpet. Meanwhile, the Wyze has a longer battery life and performs better on high-pile carpets. Its main floorhead also has headlights to help you see what you're cleaning under chairs or couches.
The Wyze Cordless Vacuum and Dyson V11 each have advantages, and one may suit you better than the other, depending on your needs. The Wyze is notably lighter and clears more debris on low and high-pile carpet. Conversely, the Dyson has a longer battery life, a larger dustbin, and is more effective in dealing with bulky debris like cereal on bare floors.
The Tineco PURE ONE S11 and Wyze Cordless Vacuum each have advantages, and one might suit you better depending on your budget and needs. The Tineco has a larger dustbin and delivers better performance on bare floors. The Tango variant of the S11 also comes with more tools and accessories, including a secondary soft roller floorhead and a miniature turbo brush. However, the Wyze is lighter, has a longer maximum battery life, is easier to maintain, and does a better job cleaning low and high-pile carpet.
The Wyze Cordless Vacuum is a little better than the Tineco PWRHERO 11, though both are pretty evenly-matched. The Wyze incurs practically no recurring costs, has a slightly longer battery life, is easier to maneuver, and delivers better performance on carpets. Meanwhile, the Tineco charges faster, struggles less with bulky debris, has a bigger dustbin, and has an upholstery tool that's better-suited to handling pet hair on furniture.
The Wyze Cordless Vacuum is better for more uses than the Tineco PURE ONE X. The Wyze has fewer parts requiring regular maintenance, incurs virtually no recurring costs, has a larger internal dustbin, has a removable battery, is easier to maneuver, and performs better on low and high-pile carpet. The Tineco takes less time to recharge, has a longer maximum battery life, features an automatic suction power adjustment function, comes with more tools, and clears more debris on bare floors, especially bulkier material like cereal, which can get stuck in the entry to the Wyze's dustbin.
The Wyze Cordless Vacuum is better for more uses than the Hoover ONEPWR Evolve Pet. The Wyze is lighter, easier to maneuver, does a better job of trapping fine allergens, makes less noise, performs better on low-pile carpets, and you can configure it as a handheld vacuum for cleaning hard-to-reach areas. It also has a longer maximum runtime, though the Hoover's battery pack charges faster. The Hoover is also better-built, does a better job dealing with small debris, and has a larger dustbin.
The Roborock H6 Adapt and Wyze Cordless Vacuum are fairly evenly matched vacuums, though one may suit you better than the other depending on your exact needs. The Roborock has a longer battery life, a carpet detection feature, more tools and accessories, including an extension hose, and struggles much less with bulky material like cereal on bare floors. Conversely, the Wyze has fewer parts that need to be cleaned regularly as well as a bigger dustbin. It also performs better on high-pile carpet.
The Wyze Cordless Vacuum is slightly better overall than the Simplicity S65. The Wyze is easier to store, feels lighter, has a longer maximum battery life, and delivers better performance on low and high-pile carpet. Conversely, the Simplicity has fewer parts that need regular cleaning, has a larger dustbin, does a better job on bare floors, and charges faster.
Build quality is passable. The vacuum is mainly made of plastic, though its detachable wand is aluminum, and the floorhead wheels are rubber. It has an LED screen that displays the percentage of remaining battery charge and the current suction power mode. There are a couple of more notable weak points. The back of its floorhead scratches easily, which you can observe on our test unit. Also, while the clear plastic dirt compartment isn't too fragile, it could still break if you drop it.
Out-of-the-box assembly is simple, requiring only that you put together the few included parts and mount its docking station to a wall. Most of its parts attach with easy-clip mechanisms. You can also remove its battery.
This vacuum has a few parts that need regular cleaning, with most being easy to access.
Recurring costs are minimal. No replacement interval is specified for its HEPA filter in the Quick Start Guide. That said, a two-pack of replacement filters is listed on the manufacturer website.
This vacuum is fairly easy to store. Its wand doesn't collapse, but it does have a rack station that holds the vacuum upright and has room for two attachments. Using its rack station changes its dimensions as follows.
The dirt compartment is adequately sized. It falls on the smaller end of the scale for a stick vacuum, with a similar capacity to the LG CordZero A9, so it needs regular emptying. However, its clear plastic construction makes it easy to check its fill status at a glance.
This is a cordless vacuum, so its range is limited only by its remaining battery life and the room left in its dirt compartment.
This vacuum is impressively portable. It weighs even less than alternatives like the Samsung Jet 60 and has a built-in carrying handle to make it easier to lift and hold.
Battery performance is decent. Using it in its most energy-efficient 'ECO' mode in conjunction with its 2-in-1 combination tool yields roughly an hour of runtime, while running it in its high-power 'TURBO' mode with its wand and main floorhead drops its battery life to about 10 minutes. This lines up with its advertised battery life of 10 to 50 minutes, though it's worth noting that real-world battery life can still vary somewhat depending on the mix of floor types in your home. The LED touchscreen display on the vacuum's body lets you monitor the battery's remaining charge.
This vacuum has a couple of quality-of-life features. Its floorhead pivots for better maneuverability and features headlights to help you see when cleaning in darker areas. There are three suction modes that you can swap between by tapping on the LED touchscreen: the energy-efficient 'ECO' mode, the default 'MEDIUM' mode, and the high-power 'TURBO' mode. The touchscreen also shows a "Blockages or Brushroll" warning if the brushroll gets jammed or if a piece of debris becomes wedged in place.
The Wyze Cordless Vacuum has a few tools and accessories. There's a 2-in-1 combination tool that can be used as an upholstery tool or as a soft-bristle brush, as well as a crevice tool for clearing messes in tight corners. Its wand doesn't extend or collapse, but you can still use it to increase your reach. Unlike the Tineco PURE ONE S11, it doesn't come with a secondary soft roller for cleaning bare floors. While it isn't included in the box, you can purchase a motorized turbo brush from Wyze's website.
You can use the Wyze Cordless Vacuum as a compact handheld vacuum by detaching its wand.
The Wyze Cordless Vacuum has good performance on bare floors in its 'MEDIUM' mode. It's capable of dealing with small debris like rice without an issue. However, it struggles a little with bulkier debris like cereal. Some of this kind of material can get stuck at the entry to the dustbin, and clearing cereal with its primary floorhead can pulverize it, scattering fragments around as you clean, but also making it easier to pick up later. Clearing bulky debris with its combination tool doesn't crush the material, so even more intact debris can get caught in the cyclone.
Debris pickup on low-pile carpet is very good with the vacuum in its high-power 'TURBO' mode. It does a fantastic job cleaning fine debris like baking soda. It also does a decent job of dealing with larger materials like sand.
This vacuum delivers excellent performance on high-pile carpet in its 'MEDIUM' power setting. It easily cleans larger materials like sand and fine debris like baking soda, though you might need to make an extra pass to collect every last bit.
Pet hair pickup on floors is remarkable. This vacuum has no issue clearing away hair on bare floors or low and high-pile carpet with its floorhead.
This vacuum has good suction power. The manufacturer advertises its motor to output 150AW, similar to the Samsung Jet 60, and is fairly potent for a vacuum in this price bracket. This lets it lift debris embedded in carpet fibers and in cracks and crevices.
This vacuum is pretty quiet. It's not much louder than lower-powered models like the Xiaomi Mi Vacuum Cleaner Light, so it won't be disruptive for people in other rooms, though it can mask the sound of nearby conversation if it's running in the same room.
The Wyze Cordless Vacuum is easy to maneuver. Its lightweight construction makes it easy to push and pull around, even in cramped environments. The LED strip on its floorhead helps you see what you're cleaning in dark environments, and it's easy to switch between different attachments. You may need to rotate the handle when crouching to clean under tables and chairs to ensure that the floorhead lies flat against the ground. In addition, since there's no brushroll on/off switch, it can get stuck on rug tassels. Thankfully, the LED touchscreen does display a warning if the brushroll gets jammed.
This vacuum does a poor job of handling pet hair on upholstered furniture when used with its default set of attachments. Its upholstery tool isn't all that effective for dealing with strands of hair on fabric, while its crevice tool has too narrow a nozzle to be practical for this kind of use. The mini motorized attachment offered on Wyze's website will improve its performance in this respect.
This vacuum does a great job of sealing in dust. Its filter does have a HEPA rating, and that's reflected in how little in the way of particulate matter escapes from its exhaust.
The Wyze Cordless Vacuum does a good job of dealing with debris in cracks and crevices. It may not have a soft roller, which would generate an even tighter seal with the ground, but its relatively strong suction motor helps it draw out debris from shallow and medium-depth crevices. You'll want to use the crevice tool to clean deep cracks.
This vacuum's impact on dried-on stains is minimal. Its floorhead can slightly chip away dried-on dirt, but there's no dedicated mopping floorhead to allow it to scrub away messes.
