Cordless

The Kärcher WV5 is cordless. Most of the other low maximum input power vacuums that have been around for a comparable time to the WV5 are not cordless.

It may also be worth considering one of the alternative cordless vacuum cleaners currently available including the VAX Air Cordless Switch H85-AC21-B[plb_2981474_price], or the Black & Decker PD1020L[plb_2981443_price] which is cheaper.

With a weight of only 670 grams, the Kärcher WV5 is very light compared to most of the other similar spec vacuums that have been available for a comparable time to the WV5.

If you would consider a vacuum with a heavier weight then you might want to look at the Zelmer Elf 3[plb_2546936_price] (3.8kg), or the Black & Decker PD1020L[plb_2981443_price] (1.9kg) which is also cheaper.

3 Reasons Against

Does Not Have a Brush Tool

The Kärcher WV5 does not have a brush tool, although keep in mind that most of the other vacuum cleaners of this spec and age also do not have a brush tool.

We compared all the other vacuums which also have a brush tool to this vacuum and we think the Hoover CleanJet CJ625[plb_2665907_price] which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.
