Cordless stick vacuums are made for the home-owner who values portability without having to compromise on performance. These vacuums are flexible, affordable and powerful enough to eliminate most types of debris on almost any floor type.

Their small form factor makes them perfect for vacuuming tight spaces like under furniture, and they are lightweight enough to give you an easy time when vacuuming hard to reach areas like walls and ceilings. Today we’ll look at two popular stick vacuums and try to figure out the differences and similarities between the two.

Shark vs Tineco

The first one is the Tineco A10 Hero Cordless Stick Vacuum and the second one is the SharkNinja IONFlex 2X DuoClean Ultra-Light Vacuum. The Tineco A10 is a lightweight but powerful stick vacuum that will easily convert to a handheld vacuum. It comes with quite a number of accessories that make it flexible enough to clean all types of stains on different surfaces.

On the other hand, the SharkNinja is a unique vacuum with an innovative wand that will push the limit when it comes to reaching tight spots like under furniture. It is also very powerful and will easily convert to a handheld vacuum to give you more cleaning flexibility.

Let’s dive in and see how each of these stick vacuums performs in the following fronts.


Battery Life

Tineco A10 Hero
Battery life is an important feature of any cordless vacuum, and this vacuum does not disappoint. It comes with a battery that is able to power the device for up to 25 minutes in the regular mode. In Max Mode, this battery will give you enough juice for 7 minutes of uninterrupted cleaning.

The battery on this device is a detachable battery, which means that you can use it to get double the runtime by purchasing an extra battery pack. Even after years of service, you can get the vacuum back to its original glory by purchasing an extra battery pack.

Tineco vs Shark

The IONFlex comes with two batteries and an optional dual charger that you can use to charge the extra battery pack as you vacuum. Each battery will give you about 10 minutes of cleaning time in max mode and close to half an hour in the low power extended runtime mode.

It also comes with a detachable battery so you can buy as many batteries as you need if the standard runtime is not good enough. Unlike the Tineco, this one comes with one extra battery so you will get double the runtime without having to purchase anything extra.

Portability and Maneuverability

This vacuum comes with the familiar stick vacuum look with a long wand, a brush roll, and the main body. With the main body only weighing 2.87 pounds, this vacuum is portable enough for working on the floor and high areas like ceilings and upholstery.

With a long wand and swivel steering, this vacuum will perform amazingly on tight spaces as well as open floors. The power brush also has a set of LED lights that will illuminate the cleaning path to ensure that you don’t miss a spot.

This stick vacuum has been built with portability in mind. It has a flexible wand that will make it easy to clean under furniture and other hard to reach areas. This wand is able to bend using the MultiFLEX technology so that you can easily access areas hidden by obstacles.

It also has a set of LED lights on the front of the brush roll to illuminate dark spots, and it will easily convert to a handheld vacuum if you want to clean shelves, corners, ceilings, staircases, and upholstery. The wand also folds completely to shift the weight and allow the vacuum to stand freely on its own without the need for extra support. This means that storage is easy, fast and quick.

Suction

Tineco A10 Hero
This vacuum comes with a 350W digital motor that is powerful enough to give you strong suction while ensuring that the vacuum remains quiet in operation. This suction is capable of lifting embedded dirt from carpets and hard floors.

If you need strong suction to dislodge the toughest of stains, you can step up the suction with the max mode that will give you up to 4 times the suction you would get from an ordinary DC motor vacuum cleaner.

Don’t let the compact design fool you. This vacuum also delivers powerful suction that can be stepped up using the Max Power mode that increases motor speed to boost suction. This suction is complemented by Shark’s DuoClean technology to ensure that you get the best results whether you are working on carpets or hard floors.

The DuoClean technology gives a vacuum better capabilities on different floor types and working on different types and sizes of debris by the use of two motorized brush rolls. One brush roll has bristles for deep cleaning carpets while the other one is a soft brush for pulling in large particles and lifting fine particles from the floor.

Accessories

Tineco A10 Hero
The ability of a vacuum cleaner to multi-task is determined to a great extent by the types of accessories that it comes with. The A10 Hero comes with the main power brush with LED lights, a mini power brush, a 2-in-1 dusting brush, a crevice tool and a storehouse that holds everything when not in use. You also get a charging adaptor.
