What we like and what we don’t like
As you would see there is no shortage of options to consider when it comes to vacuum cleaners. Different products come under different brand names and models associating a range of features. Even the handheld vacuum cleaners are available in the market in large numbers. Nevertheless, Shark IONFlex comes with a convertible design and several other features that are not so common among the conventional products. Here’s a list of things we like and don’t.
What we like
The convertible feature can become handy at many times. This vacuum cleaner can be used for various purposes just because of this portability. In addition to that, you can reach ‘usually-difficult’ corners of your house with this product particularly because of the extended and flexible handle. It can help you to reach heights without climbing on chairs or tables because of this feature.
There are different settings to use on depending on the type of the floor you need to clean; for carpeted or tiled floor. Although Shark IONFlex does not pick objects at one pass all the time (particularly when you have to pick up large objects), it is quite impressive in terms of overall performance. You can completely collect such items with a couple of passes and we think that it is not a great downside.
What we don’t like
One of the most obvious things we don’t like about this product is its battery life. Upon a full charge (which takes about 3.5 hours as per the manufacturers) it can last about 30 minutes’ maximum. So, if you are planning to clean a large area, you must be able to accept this downside. However, the duration of operation might vary depending on the vacuum setting you use.
We also think that this is somewhat expensive than some of the vacuum cleaners in the market. So, if you are concerned about the budget, this might not be the best option.
We have noticed that Shark IONFlex comes with relatively small dust cup. However, considering the overall time it operates per full charge and the convenience of removing it, this is a small downside.
Should you buy Shark IONFlex?
Well, as mentioned earlier, if you are prepared to accept that his device offers a constant operation only up to 30 minutes and willing to pay a higher price, this can be a decent option to consider.
In fact, the price of Shark IONFlex can vary within a wide range (from $270 to $460) depending on how you purchase it. There are several options to consider from official website to Amazon to local stores. If you purchase a 2X version, you will get 2 batteries as well in addition to the other accessories.
