The Dyson V7 rated Excellent overall. This cordless model solidifies Dyson's domination in our lightweight stick vac category. It received top scores for our carpet, bare floor, edge cleaning and pet hair tests although it did not prevent small particles from being released into the air when vacuuming. It features a max mode that runs for 7.5 minutes on a full battery charge and converts to a hand vac. Although its dirt bin is exceptionally small compared to most models, it can be emptied in one step and allows for easy access to the filter for cleaning. This model was easy to maneuver around furniture legs and it fits especially well under furniture.

It’s as powerful as cordless vacuums get.
