If you\u2019re on the market for your own personal HEPA vacuum, the best backpack vacuum cleaner is the Atrix VACBP1. It\u2019s small, compact, easy to wield, but more importantly: it packs mean cleaning power, all 1400 watts of it. You even save yourself some money considering it uses a reusable shake out bag.\r\n\r\nWhy We Like It - Atrix VACBP1\r\nThe Atrix VACBP1 is the ideal option for those wanting the superior HEPA performance of commercial vacuums, but for their own at-home usage.\r\n\r\nPower\r\nYou wouldn\u2019t think, after once glance, that the tiny design of the Atrix Ergo Backpack had so much power. Under its thick plastic shell is 1400 watts of cleaning power, with 120V. Despite its powerful suction, it doesn\u2019t hinder the spinning turbo brush when used on carpets.\r\nSpeed & Efficiency\r\nAll that power has to do something, right? It improves the overall efficiency by having 106 CFM, which is 106 cubic feet per minute. And since it\u2019s so powerful, you hardly have to go over a spot more than once. A more important aspect is the HEPA filtration system; it captures ultrafine particles inside the HEPA bag, which can be emptied and reused!\r\nBin Capacity & Maintenance\r\nDespite its small size, it even carries a lot in its shake out bag, a whole 2 gallons! That\u2019s 0.5 gallons over the more expensive Koblenz Vacuum BP-1400. However, this does mean the bag will need to be maintained every now and then, just to prevent build up.\r\nDurability\r\nThe Atrix Backpack HEPA Vacuum Blower isn\u2019t winning any awards in durability anytime soon. Compared to the Hoover Commercial C2401, the Atrix VACBP1 looks like a toy. It isn\u2019t going to fall apart on you, but tossing it around is a surefire way of getting rid of it. It\u2019s also unfortunate that the power cord is so small, just 3 feet, that you\u2019ll need an extension cord.\r\nValue\r\nThe most value you can extract from the Atrix VACBP1 is when it\u2019s used in a residential setting, like yourself when you\u2019re at home. That\u2019s not to say that it can\u2019t be used at a small business, because it definitely can, but it\u2019s more at home when\u2014well, when you\u2019re home. If you want something for your business, you\u2019ll get more value out of the ProTeam ProVac FS6.\r\nAtrix VACBP1 Wrap Up\r\nFor those looking to trap nasty pollutants at home, the Atrix VACBP1 is your go-to. It\u2019s small, compact, and surprisingly powerful despite its size, all 1400 watts. And since you never have to use vacuum bags, you save yourself a lot of money. To circumvent its so-so exterior build quality, don\u2019t toss it around.
