No, not all vacuums are the same! Here are six things that make LG’s CordZero Handstick Vacuum Cleaners the latest must-have home appliance.
How great can a vacuum really be? Most of us detest plugging one in and relentlessly rolling a vacuum head over and over and over a stubborn cluster of crumbs.
It can be one of the most time-consuming chores because there’s the transition from rugs to tiles, and carpet to floorboards. Then there’s the hard to reach places like the corners of the staircase or the inside of the car. Ugh. The struggle is all too real.
That’s if you have the wrong vacuum.
LG has now released an incredible gamer changer on the home appliance scene with their range of CordZero Handstick Vacuum Cleaners. As the name suggests, these vacuums are completely cordless – meaning you have complete freedom from tangled cords and can clean up mess in any space conveniently!
Pretty impressive at first glance, right? The CordZero range has so much more to offer than the obvious cordless freedom, so we’ve gathered six of our favourite features about the CordZero collection that will change the way you look at cleaning.
Busts the dust with 5 Step Filtration
Let’s start off with the technical features that CordZero has to offer. Don’t be overwhelmed because we’ll take you through step by step – to a total of five steps to be exact. This dreamy cleaning machine uses 5 Step Filtration immediately from the second you turn it on to moment a particle of dust lands in its bin.
This deconstructed image shows exactly what’s going on in this lightweight vacuum (i.e.… a lot!). For a simplified explanation, dust and larger dirt particles are separated in steps 1–3 and deposited in the dustbin, while smaller particles including fine dust are filtered in steps 4–5.
These super vacuums have something called an Axial Turbo Cyclone™ design, which generates powerful mini whirlwinds of air that suck in and separate dust particles and dirt.
The built-in superfine spiral blades direct the airflow to help enhance dust separation. It’s ultra-powerful on large and small dirt particles. Check out how thoroughly it picks up sprinkles from a shaggy rug!
Improved performance with the lightweight Smart Inverter Motor® P9
The motor of any machine is arguably the most important part. LG uses a brushless Smart Inverter Motor™ in CordZero that spins at a rapid speed. It drives the fan to generate internal cyclonic airflows inside the vacuum to help separate and filter dust particles, as we mentioned in point 1.
The key feature to note is that the LG CordZero vacuum is designed with a brushless motor, which means it works with minimal mechanical friction during operation. Motors with carbon brushes may create carbon dust which wears over time when the motor is operating. Since the Smart Inverter Motor™ doesn’t use any carbon brushes, it generates minimal carbon dust.
By magnetic separation of the components (yes, we’re putting science caps on), the motor is more durable and will have a longer life. Such a long life, in fact, that LG offers a 10-year parts warranty on the motor!
The physical design of the motor itself is powerful yet small and lightweight, which allows the new and improved design compared to LG’s previous handstick vacuum cleaner.
Strong and thorough cleaning with the Power Drive Nozzle
The cleaning head also has a secret gem hidden within: the Power Drive Nozzle.
This special motor on the inside of the head rotates the roller so it can effectively clean from any floor surface. It lifts dust, dirt and even pet hair from carpets and off hard floors. Watch the short clip below to see it in action!
More battery time with the Dual Power Pack
With 2X models (A9 MASTER 2X, A9 MULTI 2X and A9 PETNBED 2X), interchangeable and rechargeable batteries are easy to swap over for continuous cleaning.
The two lithium-ion batteries in the LG CordZero handstick provide a possible total of a huge 80 minutes’ worth of vacuum time! (When operating in ‘normal’ start mode and without a Power Drive Nozzle™.)
By simply pushing the buttons on both sides of the battery, you can slip the battery in or out. What better way to speed up time spent on chores!
Comfortable operation with Thumb Touch Control®
Now that you know how it works on the inside, you’re probably wondering if all that technology makes the vacuum heavy or difficult to use. The short answer is: no.
CordZero is as cleverly designed on the outside as it is on the inside. These vacuums have an ergonomic Opti-balanced Handle™. This special handle reduces strain on your arm and wrist for relaxed and comfortable use – even when vacuuming the whole house!
The cleaner body of the CordZero is also specifically designed to face the floor at a 45 degree angle. Why? So that the centre of gravity of the motor and the battery are optimised to reduce muscle strain. Unlike other vacuums, it provides for an effortless position when cleaning the floor.
Perhaps the most noticeable comfort feature is Thumb Touch Control®. All the functions (on, off and power levels including turbo mode) are easy to control and are enabled with a touch of a thumb. LG has put all the control in the palm of your hand – literally!
Did we mention it’s also adjustable? There’s so much to love!
Easy, versatile storage
So you know what’s going on inside the CordZero, you’ve cleaned up the mess on the floor, and now you’re ready to kick your feet up. Packing away is just as easy with three storage options: Floor-standing mode, Wall-mount mode, or Compact mode.
The versatility in storage lets the CordZero fit into any space of your home, just the way you want.
