REVIEW | VAX LIFE CORDLESS VACUUM



I hate cleaning, yes I've said it. If I didn't have to clean the house I wouldn't, but living with a toddler it can get very messy and I hate leaving the house messy especially when guests could come over at any time! I love the feeling of a freshly cleaned home, especially after vacuuming it just gives the house a whole different look although after a few hours it's a tip again! The thing about vacuuming which I hate the most is having to drag a heavy hoover up and down the stairs and having to plug it in! Which is where this new gadget comes in...

We have been testing out the Vax LiFE Unplugged Cordless Upright Vacuum Cleaner for the past couple of months and I can safely say that we are converted to cordless vacumns! Having previously only owned plug in hoovers we are extremely pleased with the Vax and wanted to share our thoughts with you all. 


The Vax LiFe Unplugged is the UK's most advanced cordless cleaning system which operates on a rechargeable lithium ion battery. The Vax is able to perform on both hard floors as well as carpets and as it's cordless you don't have to worry about getting the cord tangled around your feet or the furniture. You can effortlessy clean you home without having to bend down to change the plug socket   which is definitely one of my favourite features. 

The LiFe Unplugged weighs just 3.3kg and is extremely easy to lift up and down the stairs and carry from room to room which is great for people with bad backs or pregnant women. It has a very smart design - the blue led indicator lights up for hard floor or carpet modes and power remaining. The power button is on the handle and simply requiring turning with the thumb with just one or two clicks.


Having never owned a Vax product before I had no idea what to expect but was really surprised at the quality of the Vax LiFE cleaner and how easy it is to use. My heavier machine is now hidden away in the attic and I've been using this every day since! With a toddler who likes to leave crumbs every where she goes I'm forever cleaning up after her. The Vax LiFe makes my life far easier as I can just quickly grab it from the cupboard and hoover away instead of having to plug it in. 


Our entire house is laminated apart from the stairway, hallway and nursery so the Vax makes it much easier to hoover the house all in one go as I can just carry it upstairs quickly. I also really like using this for cleaning the stairs as the suction is really good there's no need to attach smaller bits. The only thing I have noticed is the battery life isn't too long and only lasts around 15 minutes however that's not a problem for us as I manage to hoover the whole house in one go and then I'll just stick the battery on charge ready for the next day. 


The Vax can hold up to 1.4 litres of dirt and dust before it needs emptying. I have found that the cylinder is pretty small so does need changing often but it's no trouble. The LiFE upright's wind tunnel technology lifts and traps dirt, so it stays in the vacuum cleaner and not on your floor. I used to find with my previous vacuum cleaner no matter how many times I would go over one particular area there would still be specks of dirt on the floor which ended up in me having to bend down to pick up. 


Overall, I am extremely impressed with our new gadget and as I previously said we are now converted and will never go back to a plug in vacuum! I just love the ease of the cordless vacuum's, not having to stop and start because the cord has run out. The suction is far better than I expected  it to be and it runs for a decent amount of time. If you were worried about the battery life perhaps purchasing a second battery to have on hand would be a good idea for bigger homes, however living in a decent sized 3 bedroomed house we haven't encounter any problems. 

I feel that the Vax Unplugged would be great for someone living in a smaller home or flat and it fits perfectly in a small cupboard which is great if you haven't got a lot of space or behind a door out of sight. 

The Vax LiFE retails at £199.99 which in my opinion is pretty reasonable and great value for money. You can find out more about the Vax LiFE Unplugged here it is available to purchase from the Vax website.

Are you a cordless fan?

{UPDATE} We have now been using the Vax LiFe since we received it back in May and can honestly say we are still loving it! We've had no problems with it so far and even Andy has used it which is an achievement as he doesn't do any housework. The suction is still as great as ever and the battery life is no different than previously. If you're thinking of purchasing one, I'd highly recommending doing so! It will change your life for the better!

* We were sent the Vax LiFE to review however all opinions are our own and 100% honest.

  13. Hi,

    Thanks for sharing this nice post. My own point of view, "Vax life cordless Vacuum " is cute but when sold as a desktop Vacuum is is not very good - was hardly able to create enough suction to lift a small, lightweight piece of paper. Thank you...

    Regards,
    Robert Brown

  17. This isn't an awful cordless vacuum cleaner at the present cost of 119.However there are other better alternatives around.But if you need something lightweight to rapidly buzz around your home then this may be worth considering.
