In my previous VonHaus 2-in-1 review, I talked about a wired vacuum cleaner that sounds like cordless.
This time around, VonHaus has finally developed something without wire.
At first glance you thought it was Electrolux Ergorapido. This is because they both have the same design. Put a handheld vacuum cleaner in a stick vacuum container and label it 2-in-1.
While this scores points for versatility, the suction power suffers.
When compared to the class-leading Dyson, suction is still missing as evidenced by its 20W power output.
Compare that to a Dyson V6 which produces 28 watts of air (100 max), the suction is a bit lacking. So the best use of this broom is for quick cleaning, yes even on floors.
Let’s see what this void has to offer and what consumers think.
Quick look at the features
- Powered by a 19.2V Li-ion battery which VonHaus says provides fade-free power
- A full charge will take 3 hours and will give you 15 minutes of cordless cleaning
- Not a large dust tank 0.5L
- It comes with a crevice tool and a small brush head to give you versatility to clean not only floors but upholstery as well.
- Lightweight and swivel steering for easy maneuverability on floors
- Decent running time of 15 minutes
- Great for cleaning small homes or cars
- Lithium-ion battery gives you fade-free power (depending on manufacturer)
- Not great on carpet – lacks strength
- Warranty is not specified
- Lacks tools like brush tool or pet hair tie tool
What do you expect from the wireless VonHaus 2-in-1?
Much like the Electrolux Ergorapido, this broom is essentially a handheld vacuum cleaner attached to a stick casing.
This makes this a versatile product but at the cost of strength. And since you’re only using a handheld device, expect portable-type capacity in terms of the amount of dirt it can hold.
In this case, expect a dirt capacity of only 0.5 liters which is not a huge amount. This means that this device is not designed for cleaning large areas but for cleaning small areas only as a spot cleaner, even on floors.
In terms of suction power, it is good but not strong. VonHaus says it has about 20 air watts of suction power. That’s about 8 less than the Dyson V6 and 20 less than the new Black + Decker BDH3600 series.
So VonHaus has a lot of catching up to do if it wants to compete with the big ones.
But remember that the above products cost 3-4 times more, so this product gives consumers a budget alternative.
bare floor performance
Based on the reviews I’ve read, this product will work best on smooth surfaces like linoleum and hardwood but only small tampers.
You’ll struggle to pick up a big mess because it simply lacks the suction power to do so.
If you have some pets, this may work to clean up cat litter and possibly some pet hair. But if you have a lot of pets, it is better to invest in something more powerful
Despite some positive reviews about this vacuum cleaner that works well on carpets, don’t set your expectations too high as this vacuum cannot deep clean carpets.
Let me repeat that, this vacuum cannot deeply clean carpets.
With only 20 watts of air on the faucet and a weak brush roll, this will only work best as a surface cleaner on low-pile carpets.
If you have a house with a lot of carpets inside, this is not the best option. You’d be better off with something more powerful like the Hoover Linx Stick or the DC59 Motorhead.
To capture surface dirt on upholstery, this machine has the power to do just that.
Although the crevice tool lacks the length to reach the depth of the crevices. It includes a small robotic tool that you need to clean the dirt and hair on the fabric upholstery.
So there are some limitations.
This machine is not suitable for cleaning heavy pet hair as it lacks the power and tools to do so.
Attachments and accessories
As for the handheld vacuum cleaner, it only comes with a crevice tool.
It will take about 3 hours to fully charge this.
Unpacking and cleaning this is easy. All you have to do is remove the mobile device from the cover. The next step will be to push the release lever at the top to open the container.
The filter is washable but make sure it is completely dry before putting it back on the vacuum.
A full charge gives you 15 minutes of run time.
VonHaus has not specified a warranty period for this product.
Watch it in action
This is an Amazon video review recording. I wanted to share this to give you an idea of how loud this is and what it sounds like in action.

Consumers who love this product say that this product is excellent for quick cleaning on carpets, bare floors, and upholstery in a small home (more so in a motorhome) as well as cars. If you don’t have time to take out a full sized shaft, this is a great cheap alternative that cleans surface dirt well.
On carpet, this machine will work best on short, dense piles of pile but anything thicker than that will struggle.
The swivel steering is a great feature but without the charging stand, this wouldn’t stand on its own. You have been warned.
Lots of people who have given 4 or 5 star reviews say this is good value for money if you know what to expect.
Consumers who gave poor reviews say they were misled because they expected this to clean carpets but it didn’t work as well as they expected.
Overall, based on reviews, this product will work best as a stain cleaner but don’t expect it to clean anything more than low-pile carpeting. The plastic used wasn’t very high quality but you can’t expect that in a vacuum at this price range. If you have the right expectations for this product you will not be disappointed.
Where can I buy this?
You can buy this 2-in-1 cordless device from Amazon for less than $90. And it comes with free 2-day shipping if you sign up for Prime. There’s also an optional extended warranty if you want that extra peace of mind.
This product is great for cleaning small dirt thanks to a configuration that primarily uses a stick vacuum housing to hold the handheld unit. It allows you to use it on floors but despite having a brush roll, it lacks the power to do anything more than clean surfaces on carpet.
Don’t expect too much from this as it won’t work well on carpet despite what some consumers say. Expect this to work best on cleaning small dirt anywhere in the house. If you don’t want to use a broom and shovels, this is a good alternative.
This is basically a handheld vacuum cleaner attached to a stick body, so expect handheld performance and not much cleaning ability.
It’s also one of the more affordable products and if you can’t afford a brand like Dyson this is a good alternative but you need to know the limitations so you won’t be disappointed.
