Shark ION W1 Cordless Bagless Handheld Vacuum

Clean up dirt, beach sand, and pet hair while maintaining suction power using the 2-stage filtration system that efficiently picks up dirt + debris as you vacuum. Get in between couch cushions and other hard-to-reach spaces with the included crevice tool and easily store on-board when you’re finished. The vacuum’s extra-large dustbowl was designed to empty less often so you can relax after cleaning up.

Shark’s latest handheld-only model has a narrow design for targeted suction and a charging dock. These models come with a few accessories, onboard storage, and a charging dock. Lacks the strong suction power of more expensive Shark models. Shark’s unique brushroll design easily sucks up pet hair (and human hair) without it becoming wrapped around the brush.

Overall, this was our favorite of all the Shark attachments. While Dyson vacuums offer scientifically-backed machines with an excellent reputation for quality, their products often tip towards four figure price points. Shark, on the other hand, tops out at around $499 for even their luxe models—which is closer to the price of Dyson’s budget line. Not all of Shark’s handheld vacuums could make it onto our list, but here is a couple that were close contenders. Depending on your circumstances, they could still be the right vacuum for you.
