This sweeper is not a vacuum cleaner. It doesn't have any suction but instead uses a rotating brush to flip crumbs and debris into a dirt cup.

But this isn't your mama's sweeper. Its cordless design, bottom emptying dirt cup, and swivel/folding handle make it a lean, mean, dirt devouring machine.

Chips, cereal, rice, and any other ground-up bits of dirt don't stand a chance. Its performance on carpet is fabulous, but hard surface flooring is where it really shines. Nothing is left behind. It's transformed quick floor cleaning in my home.

Guide Review - Cordless Sweeper

The Shark VX3 Cordless Sweeper is great on hardwood floors and carpet, too. Graham cracker, cereal, even bits of cupcake were easily picked up with the sweeper.

The sweeper has a rechargeable battery pack, and out of the box, it needs to charge for nearly 20 hours. But after its fully charged, I couldn't believe how long the life of the battery was. It lasted over an hour altogether, allowing me to complete several quick cleanups before it fully discharged and was ready to charge again.

The handle swivels and glides with zero effort. The handle folds down to make sweeping under low areas effortless as well.

Everyone will want to clean the floor if they get to do it with the Shark VX3 Cordless Sweeper.
