The Best Cordless Vacuum With Replaceable Battery
There’s no way I can hide my personal excitement over the Dyson stick vacuums, but one thing strikes me every time they release a new model: Why, oh why don’t they have a replaceable battery?
I know they sell a lot of accessories for their cordless vacuums: Flexible hose, brush tool, attachment clip, wall mount, and much more. So why not add replaceable batteries and external charging stations to the range of products as well?
In fact, replaceable batteries are common in lots of tools these days, and they have been around for as long as I can remember. It would indeed make the cordless vacuums much more convenient to use, if you aren’t limited to just one battery.
Fortunately there’s light at the end of the tunnel now: More and more manufacturers are beginning to understand the need for replaceable batteries in their cordless vacuums, and as a consumer you get more options day by day.
I’ve taken a thorough look at the market, and reviewed some of the best cordless vacuums with replaceable batteries right now – so read on, and I’ll introduce you to my absolute favorites (and tell you exactly WHY i like them).
