These days, it’s perfectly possible to pick up a decent dustbuster for less than $30. As a result, I tend to scrutinize anything for around $50 more intensively. For me, any handheld that costs $50 or more needs to bring something special to the table. In this case, ONSON Cordless Dustbuster makes a great deal.
I carried out this ONSON Cordless dustbuster review at the request of a friend, who recently bought one online as a secondary cleaner. At first glance, it’s a great looking device that ships complete with a handful of useful accessories.
In addition, the manufacturer also makes a fair few claims to fame, with regard to its performance. It is also designed for wet and dry cleaning, which is always a bonus with dustbusters. But what is it specifically about this cordless vacuum cleaner that justifies the slightly higher price?
Is it really worth paying $50 for this ONSON dustbuster, or would you be just as well spending $30 on something else and pocketing the change? These are the questions I set out to answer – read on for my findings:
ONSON Cordless Dustbuster Review – Features
This cordless dustbuster is well designed and manufactured, sporting a sleek and stylish exterior with a strong focus on comfort and convenience. You can also see the relatively large debt collection chamber at a glance, which again is a big point of appeal with devices like these.
The official size and weight specifications of this dustbuster are as follows:
- Product Dimensions – 17.7 x 5.9 x 6.7 inches
- Item Weight – 3.52 pounds
- Shipping Weight – 3.8 pounds
From these basic specifications, you can see that this ONSON Handheld Vacuum Cleaner is slightly weightier than some of its closest counterparts. There are some dustbusters out there that weigh less than 1.5lbs, so it’s way ahead of these in terms of weight. Still, not nearly enough to make it heavy or uncomfortable to use.
As for the rest of its features and selling-points, the manufacturer highlights the following:
Powerful Cyclonic Suction
This new and improved dustbuster from ONSON has a powerful 100W motor under the hood, which is capable of delivering an impressive and consistent 8Kpa super suction. This is more than enough to pick up embedded dirt and even pet hair from around the home or in the car.
All-Round Effective Cleaning
The inclusion of two additional accessories furthers the versatility of the device, making it quick and easy to get into awkward corners and crevices. It’s also a highly capable amphibious cleaner, dealing with liquid spills in seconds.
Longer Working Time
Battery charging times average around 3 hours, after which the dustbuster is good for a full 20 minutes of powerful cleaning. This is right in line with the most high-performance dustbusters on the market.
Lightweight & Cordless
Weighing in at approximately 3.5lbs, this is an extremely lightweight and user-friendly handheld that’s very comfortable to hold and convenient to work with this vacuum.
Noise Free System
State-of-the-art technology has been used to reduce the noise of the motor significantly powering the ONSON Hand Vacuum cleaner. As a result, maximum noise emitted while in use measures just 75dB, which is significantly lower than most comparable handheld vacuum cleaners.
Detachable and Washable Filter
The high-quality filter is removable and washable, making a noticeable difference to the freshness of the air with every use.
ONSON Cordless Dustbuster – Pet Hair and Allergies
On that note, this ONSON vacuum does a great job dealing with problematic pet hair around the home and in the car. It boasts the kind of suction power needed to quickly and easily eliminate pet hair and dander, while effectively removing dust particles and allergens from the air.
We don’t have any allergy-sufferers in our home, but I can certainly vouch for the pet-hair- busting power of this impressive little machine. When used in conjunction with the tools included, this hand vacuum has all the power, performance, and versatility needed to keep your home clean, tidy, and hygienic.
- Lightweight and easy to use
- Very impressive suction power
- Ideal for use at home and in the car
- Ships complete with additional accessories
- Removable and washable filter
- Great for dust and allergen reduction
- Perfect for wet and dry spills
- Surprisingly quiet when in use
- 20 minutes of battery life could be improved
ONSON Cordless Dustbuster- Final Thoughts
Referring back to that initial question, does the ONSON cordless vacuum cleaner justify its $50(ish) price. The answer – absolutely! Across the board, this thing is a step above your usual generic dustbuster. In terms of cleaning power, versatility, and general performance, it outperforms your typical handheld by leaps and bounds. Of course, some users have argued that 20 minutes of battery life is a little on the modest side.
But it’s worth considering how much power and performance you get during these 20 minutes. Plus, this vacuum cleaner has been designed to deal with smaller everyday cleaning jobs around the home (and in the car) – not to clean an entire house from top to the bottom in a single session!
