Reasons For

AEG PowerForce APF6140 Black & Decker SVJ520
1 Reason For
Better Brand
AEG vacuum cleaners have an average rating of 85.1%, however Black & Decker has an average rating of 81.6%.
3 Reasons For
Cordless
The Black & Decker SVJ520 is cordless, whereas the AEG PowerForce APF6140 is not cordless.

This denotes whether the vacuum has a power cord attached to it, or whether it runs of an internal battery.

However, they also normally come with a battery life of only 15-20 minutes per charge, so they won't manage more than one cleaning session without the need for recharging.
