Stick Vacuum

The Hoover LINX Cordless Stick Vacuum is an upright, bagless stick-type vacuum cleaner that is powered by a rechargeable 18V Lithium Ion Battery for cordless cleaning convenience.

It features Hoover’s patented WindTunnel® Technology for better cleaning performance, a slick and lightweight design scheme so it can be taken literally anywhere inside your home that needs cleaning, and an allergen filtration system to reduce the allergy-causing particles as it cleans.

Perfect for People Who…

The Hoover LINX Cordless Stick Vacuum is perfect for consumers who don’t want the hassles of searching for power outlets to plug into as they vacuum the house and replacing dirty vacuum bags when they are done the cleaning.

In plain and simple terms, this device is all about giving the user a sense of minimalism and convenience in both cleaning time and effort. Despite its slim feature, the LINX Cordless Stick works well at getting surface pet hair, dirt, and lint off carpets and rugs thanks to the rotating brushes and three suction tunnels. The low-profile Base allows it to reach underneath appliances, furniture, beds and tables for a thorough clean.

Looks and Feel…

The first thing people will notice about the Hoover LINX Cordless Stick Vacuum is how it looks deceivingly delicate with its upright stick frame, of which actually resembles more of a broom than a vac although it has soft rear wheels to prevent damage or streaking on delicate floors. Measuring in at approximately 11″x8″x42″ with an 11-inch nozzle, this vacuum cleaner looks light. It also feels light at just 7.3 lbs. due to its plastic construction.

Also hidden inside the slender frame of the LINX Stick Vacuum is a surprisingly powerful motor which utilizes Hoover’s patented WindTunnel® Technology that triples airflow to separate dust and debris into the cyclonic allergen filtration in the dirt cup. This helps to prevent clogging of the filter for sustained suction power. Every Hoover LINX Cordless Stick Vacuum is backed by a 2-year limited vacuum/battery/charger warranty.

Cordless Feature

With the Hoover LINX Cordless Stick Vacuum cleaner, you can now travel from room to room with no worries about finding power outlets to plug into while cleaning! This feature is made possible through the use of Hoover’s rechargeable lithium-ion battery which gives users the ease and convenience of cleaning. No more tangled cords

Powered Brushroll with WindTunnel® Technology

Shifting from hard floor cleaning to area rugs and low pile carpeting is now made easy with Hoover’s Powered Brushroll with auto height adjustment. This motorized power brush driven by the WindTunnel® Technology that utilizes three suction tunnels is strong enough to beat out all the grit and dust hiding deep within your rugs and carpets. The brush can also be conveniently turned off with a flip of a switch right at your fingertip.

“Fade-Free”, Energy Star Qualified Lithium-Ion Battery

Environment conscious buyers will love the Energy Star qualified status of the LINX Cordless Stick’s battery as this helps to prevent the emission of greenhouse gases into our atmosphere.

The 18-volt Lithium-Ion battery in every Hoover LINX Stick Vacuum also has a “fade-free” feature which allows it to work at full power all the time ensuring no loss of suction- good up to the last drop of the battery’s power with just a single charge.

There’s also an included battery charger that can recharge the battery in less than four hours. This makes the LINX Cordless Stick one clean and green machine in every sense of the word.

Hoover LINX Cordless Stick Vacuum Cons

  • Short battery life
  • Product reliability may be an issue

At first blush, people might think that the LINX Cordless Stick Vacuum is just another fancy vacuum cleaner with a few features borrowed from its upright siblings from the Hoover lineup. But the fact is that the LINX Cordless Stick is in a class on its own because seldom does a device such as this give its users the cleaning convenience that this vacuum cleaner can.

Consumers should also take into account the fact that this device is battery operated and Energy Star qualified at that with a relatively affordable price tag.

Lightweight yet powerful enough to do a decent job, this device has a lot of positives going for it, and some negatives too – none more glaring than the lack of onboard accessories. But if you are in the market searching for a mid-priced light-duty vacuum cleaner with convenience in mind, the LINX Cordless Stick Vacuum is worth a consideration.
