The handheld vacuum cleaner is the most convenient vacuum cleaner you can have in the house. You use it to do all those small and fast vac jobs around the home. There are two types. The corded and cordless. The main disadvantage with the handheld cordless vacuum cleaner is that you have to charge the battery anytime you want to use it. Coupled with the fact that, if you don’t know how to maintain the battery, it could go bad within a short period of time.
What you should be looking for in a handheld corded vacuum cleaner is one with a long power cord, lightweight, extension tools that can clean edges and corners and most of all, a very powerful suction. After looking at the reviews of many handheld corded vacs, compared and contrasted their various features, I have narrowed the top three handheld corded vacuum cleaners to :
1) Eureka EasyClean Corded Hand-Held Vacuum
2) Bissell Pet Hair Eraser Handheld Vacuum, Corded
3) Dirt Devil Scorpion Quick Flip Corded Bagless Handheld Vacuum.
In that order.

a) The bissel blows air out it’s side. This is obviously not good. Especially in tight places. It would
