There’s a general rule of thumb when it comes to the best cordless vacuums: the more they cost the more we expect from them. So when considering a budget option, the expectations usually come in fairly low. Let’s face it, a cordless vac that’s under $140, it’s almost unheard of. Let alone one that actually performs.

Enter the Oraimo cordless vacuum, listed on Amazon for just $139 (at time of review). A budget-friendly cordless vac that actually works. With three suction options, accessories, and extreme versatility, this vacuum goes the extra mile – without the cord. Its impressive suction features allow you to land quick-cleaning options, or to deep clean in tight places that larger vacuums can’t reach.

Ideal for those with pets or kids and have frequent messes, or anyone living in a tight space, this vacuum offers big power in a small model. Now, hold on to your fashion hats, let’s dive into our hands-on testing of this remarkable budget vacuum!

The Oraimo Cordless vacuum arrived in a slick green box where each piece of the vacuum was individually wrapped and easy to open. The box’s interior displayed a graphic on how to assemble the vacuum, but connecting the pieces together was pretty intuitive.

The vacuum, middle shaft, and floor head simply snap together. The box also includes a battery plus its charger, a crevice stick, and a brush. It also included extra HEPA filters, which was very appreciated given the price, a nifty wall mount for storage, and a vacuum cleaning tool that is pure genius. On one end of this tiny tool is a brush to wipe off dust, the other is a hook with a blade to slice off hair and strings. So simple, yet so smart … why doesn’t every vacuum come with this tool? I’m keeping this close by to use on all of my vacuums going forward.

A sticker said to fully charge the battery before using, so I immediately plugged it in and waited for it to charge up. I was pleasantly surprised with a short wait time of just a few hours, before I got to vacuuming.

Our review of the Oraimo vacuum

My family is hard on vacuums, which means I’m picky about what they can do. With a blue-collar husband who comes home filthy, a slab home that rowdy boys draw dirt into, and multiple pets, it’s safe to say our home needs a vacuum with some serious power. From daily cleaning to chores that only happen once a week, the Oraimo Cordless helped me keep the dirt out and the dust away.

The Oraimo Cordless allows you to choose your suction among three settings (9kpa, 18kpa, or 24kpa), which does affect battery life. However, it was easy to toggle between the levels. On hardwood, I went with the middle level and it was plenty powerful enough to suck up dirt and crumbs and whatever else. The strongest suction was best on rugs — what a breeze to pop back and forth between levels. (The only downside is that it’s a single button so you have to push it multiple times, skipping over the eco level.) We also have shag rugs, which are a pain to vacuum; I bumped down to the middle section here to speed up the process, but it did work on shag length on all settings, no clogging whatsoever.

Overall ease of use: Incredible. It was so lightweight, so easily maneuverable that my kids used it. My 6 and 4 year-olds actually fought to take turns with it. They dislike our cord vacuum because it’s tall and heavy. However, this one was small enough at just five pounds that they could use it, which is a plus for petite users or those with low strength. Words can’t describe the joy on their faces as they cleaned with the Oraimo Cordless. It was as if they were playing with a new toy, while unknowingly learning the importance of keeping the house clean.

Unbelievably, this stick vacuum stands on its own when not in use, which is pretty rare among cordless vacuums. It provides multiple storage options, including the wall mount, which has a spot to store accessories, and the ability to store while it’s still assembled.

Cleaning performance: Overall I was impressed with how well it cleaned. It worked just as well as my corded vacuum and better than my robot (likely because I could control the location). It picked up crumbs large and small in one pass. Just straight over the mess and it was gone. This thing may be small but it packs some serious punch. Once I emptied the dust bin, I found that to be even more true, with items like dust and hair that I hadn’t even noticed on the floor.

In my debris testing trials, it handled cat litter, cereal, coffee, and hair like I would expect from much pricier vacuums, though it took an extra pass with super-fine flour particles on both hard floor and a shag rug.

The shape also made maneuvering a breeze, allowing me to clean under tables, beds, and more. It’s even thinner than my robot vacuum, so I was able to dip into a few places that hadn’t been cleaned in some time.

Battery life: The Oraimo’s battery life was pretty spot on with its battery life claims, depending on whether you chose to clean on Eco, Standard, or Turbo mode. On the most powerful setting, the vacuum is set to last 13 minutes, which is not ideal, but I squeezed another minute out of a fresh battery. But with my small house, I hit everywhere I wanted on a single battery life. I even popped on the angle brush and dug into baseboards before having to stop and charge. Best-case scenario: I keep it stored next to an outlet so it can stay charged at all times, as my new go-to mess vac. But I wanted to test it after it was charged and sat for a few days, and that worked just as well. Thankfully the battery didn’t lose its charge just while sitting.

Dustbin: The dustbin locks on TIGHT, which is good to avoid a mess, but it’s also difficult to unlatch when emptying. Once it came free, the dirt emptied on its own, but I did have to reach up and pull hair from the HEPA filter area. The dustbin wasn’t completely full, but with this vacuum, lightweight items can access the filter area when cleaning.

This foam brush is durable, yet flexible to move over hard items, like flooring lips. It also has a coat of fine fibers to collect dust. Somehow a nail got suctioned up, and while the floorhead was not damaged, the nail took a beating. This foam brush is durable, yet flexible to move over hard items, like flooring lips.

Durability: One of my biggest issues is vacuums getting knotted in my own hair, which is long and sheds often. With the anti-clog brush (it’s more of a foam), hair slid right out of the roller without effort. I simply rolled it in my hand, and it ejected itself with ease. And if you’re worried about the foam bending or tearing, don’t. I sucked up an old screw and rather than harming the foam, the vacuum bent the metal. Not that I was on the fence, but that moment truly won my respect.

Cons to consider

While the Oraimo Cordless met my vacuuming needs, there are a few things to consider. First, battery life. If you have a large home or aren’t keen to plug in a battery after every other use (maybe even after every use), you’ll need to think twice. However, if your home is less dirty, it will last far longer on lower suction settings. Also, while the Oraimo met my cleaning needs on its standard and turbo modes, performance was lackluster on ECO mode, which is the setting that offered the longest cleaning period.

Next, consider the size of the vacuum, which is quite small. It still works just as well, but if you’re tall or are cleaning a large surface area, it may take longer than it would with a different model, and you’ll have to empty the dustbin more frequently.

What are your alternatives?

Ease of use is one of the most important factors when grabbing a vacuum to clean up last-minute messes. If you’re after a cheap vacuum, which we define as one under $200, our guide to the best cheap vacuums showcases the best budget models we’ve tried and tested. If cordless is what you’re after, the Hoover ONEPWR Evolve Pet Cordless hosts the dustbin at the bottom of the stick rather than the top, and hovers just over $200. Meanwhile, our top pick, the Bissell Cleanview Swivel Pet Vacuum, is a corded model that is reliable and has powerful suction on carpets and hard floors.
