Being tethered to a power cord isn’t fun, so the Prolux 2.0 Bagless Backpack Vacuum fitted itself with two 30-minute batteries, while cementing a position as the best backpack vacuum cleaner. It also ditches the vacuum bags for a modern, bagless design, reducing the money you put into it.

Why We Like It – Prolux 2.0 Bagless Backpack Vacuum

Cutting free from power cords, the Prolux 2.0 Bagless Backpack Vacuum has two 30-min batteries to support its self-cleaning upper filter and 75 CFM suction power.

Pros
  • Two 30-min batteries; no outlet required
  • Self cleaning upper filter
  • Bagless technology
Cons
  • 75 CFM is average, at best
  • Only 1.5L bin capacity

Power

When it comes to suction power, the brand new Prolux 2.0 Bagless Backpack Vacuums are on the lower spectrum, only outputting 75 CFM. But in its defense, it uses patented technology, called Vortex Chamber, which the design allows its deep cleaning power to constantly be consistent.

Speed & Efficiency

A vacuum is as efficient as its CFM, and with 75 CFM, you’re covering 75 cubic feet per minute, which is just fine in a smaller setting, like a small business or home. The ProTeam ProVac FS6 has more suction power, and therefore is more efficient. The motor bypass valve technology keeps the motor from burning up or overfilling.

Bin Capacity & Maintenance

Where it suffers the most, however, is its bin capacity. With a bin capacity of just 1.5 liters, you’ll be making frequent trips to the trashcan, but that’s only if you’re using it in large areas, though. You also have to maintain the canister more, but the upper filter has its own self-cleaning properties. Washable HEPA filters also means extra maintenance, but fewer costs.

Durability

While the Prolux 2.0 Bagless Backpack Vacuum Cleaner is primarily plastic, it’s actually quite durable. There are very few pieces jutting out from the vacuum cleaner, reducing the chance of breaking a piece off. The straps are especially durable and thick, making it very comfortable to wear for long periods of time, unlike the Koblenz Vacuum BP-1400.

Value

Finding a backpack vacuum that’s cordless and provides good suction power is hard to come by. Being free of it does offer more mobility than a corded one, but the pricing might be just a tad too high, aside from commercial use. Yes, it’s cordless, and you get an electric power nozzle kit, but you only get 1.5L to fill before heading to the trashcan. You might find more value from the Hoover Commercial C2401.

Prolux 2.0 Bagless Backpack Vacuum Wrap Up

The Prolux 2.0 Bagless Backpack Vacuum makes a valiant effort in creating a backpack vacuum without a power cord. Its suction power isn’t bad, just average. On the bright side, you get a bagless design, 1-hour run time, and a self-cleaning filter to reduce the amount of maintence involved.
