The Tineco Pure One S12 makes a fantastic argument for being the best vacuum for elderly for two main reasons: battery life and weight. Imagine wielding a strong cordless vacuum, weighing just 6.61 lbs. And since it can run for 100 minutes straight, it\u2019s a shoe-in as the best cordless vacuum.\r\n\r\nWhy We Like It - Tineco Pure One S12\r\nWhen cordless Dyson vacuums aren\u2019t within your reach, the Tineco Pure One S12 gives you the perfect alternative, one with a battery life that puts its competitors to shame.\r\n\r\nPower\r\nAt max suction power, the Tineco Pure One S12 is pulling 145W of suction power, adjustable between manual and auto mode. That kind of power provides great cleaning performance, like lifting pet hair and dust from carpets and hard surfaces. However, while it does amazing on carpets, hard flooring could use some help. This is because it lacks a soft roller power brush; otherwise performance is okay.\r\nSpeed & Efficiency\r\nThankfully, Tineco S12 Plus Cordless Stick Vacuums are incredibly efficient with power. With two batteries, it has a battery life of up to 100 minutes! Of course, it fluctuates depending on different cleaning heads used, like the Direct Drive powered brush or crevice tool. You can keep track via LED display on the main body, which is a nice touch.\r\nBin Capacity & Maintenance\r\nWith a bin capacity of 0.6 liters, it doesn\u2019t sound like much but it\u2019s actually slightly above average. Clean often and it won\u2019t be an issue. Maintenance is surprisingly low. It has a pre filter cleaning tool for cleaning filters. And through the Tineco app\u2014it\u2019s a smart vacuum, after all\u2014you can keep tabs on performance.\r\nDurability\r\nDespite being made of mostly plastic, the Tineco Pure One S12 is still well-built and looks pretty snazzy. To be fair, hard plastic is still durable and keeps it weighing just under 7 lbs, nearly 1.5 lbs lighter than a Shark Rocket HV301.\r\nValue\r\nDropping $500 on a cordless vacuum seems bonkers, but hear us out. The Oreck Commercial Upright XL2100 is far cheaper (just under $160), but you also have to worry about vacuum bags. Over time you\u2019ll reach and exceed $500. So, why not just pick up the Tineco Pure One S12, and forget about bags? Or forget about vacuuming altogether and get the iRobot Roomba 675.\r\nTineco Pure One S12 Wrap Up\r\nThe Tineco Pure One S12 is still a step behind Dyson V11 Vacuum Cleaners, but still better than your average cordless vacuum. It\u2019s biggest weakness\u2014the lack of a soft roller brush\u2014can be easily rectified by buying one. Outside that, you\u2019re getting a cordless vacuum, running for 100 minutes with 145W of suction power.
