The Electrolux Ergorapido Ion vacuum is a stick model, which can also convert to a hand-held unit. Currently, it’s price right around $200 – so, in this review of the Electrolux Ergorapido Ion vacuum cleaner, I’ll go over the strengths and weaknesses then decide if it’s worth the higher price tag. My first impression of this model is that it’s very stylish, thin and it looks very practical for small jobs. Here’s a quick rundown of the features you’ll find on-board: a battery indicator light, 10 inch cleaning path, LED headlight, very agile swivel head, cyclonic technology, brush roll attachment, a 2-stage filter system, 18 volt battery, and it’s also Energy Star qualified. And as I mentioned earlier, the hand-held vacuum can be detached from the main stick.
OK, onto the negative aspects of the Electrolux Ergorapido Ion vacuum. First, it only has a maximum of 30 minutes use time. To be fair, this amount of time is considered pretty good amongst cordless models – yet, it’s still a pretty short battery life. Another thing is that it doesn’t like to suck up anything bigger than a popcorn kernel. Lastly, the dirt canister fills up pretty quickly, which is the reason it can be so thin I suppose. Overall, I really don’t have many issues with the Electrolux Ergorapido Ion. I like this vacuum cleaner a lot, and you won’t find many stick models with more features than this one. It’s hard not to like such a sleek and stylish unit – which is why I’m giving is a 4.2 / 5 star rating.
