Kärcher Has Good Reviews for Its Vacuums

Other

Released Over Three Years Ago

This Kärcher vacuum has been on the market since February 2014.


Design

Cordless

The Kärcher WV5 is cordless. Most of the other low maximum input power vacuum cleaners that are a similar age to this vacuum also are cordless.

We compared this vacuum to all the other cordless vacuums and we think because of its better review score, the Hoover Unplugged UNP204B (£64.99) is also worth considering.

Weight & Dimensions

Light

At only 670 grams, the Kärcher WV5 is very light compared to most of the other low maximum input power vacuum cleaners that have been available for more than two years. The weights of low maximum input power vacuum cleaners that have been available for around the same time as this vacuum range from 5g to 14kg, and the average weight is 5.4kg.

We compared all the other 670g heavy vacuum cleaners to this vacuum and we think because of their better review scores, the WV2 Window Vacuum Cleaner (£33.99), and the WV5 Plus Window Vacuum Cleaner (£75) both from Kärcher are also worth considering.

If you are not concerned about having a heavier weight then you might want to consider the Kärcher WV70 Window Vacuum Cleaner (£79.99) (699g).

Performance

Quite Quiet Noise Level

The quietest noise level of low maximum input power vacuum cleaners that were released more than two years ago is 50dB, the loudest is 89dB, and the average noise level is 76dB. When compared to other low maximum input power vacuum cleaners that have been available for around the same time as this vacuum that we have assessed, the Kärcher WV5's noise level of only 50 decibels is one of the quietest.

If you would consider a vacuum with a louder noise level then you might want to look at the Electrolux ZUSORIGDB+ (£290) (61dB).

Power

12 Watts Maximum Input Power

This is a 12 Watts vacuum.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other 12W vacuum cleaners currently available including the Kärcher WV2 Window Vacuum Cleaner (£33.99) which has better reviews.

If this Kärcher vacuum maximum input power is too low for you then you might want to consider the Bissell MultiReach 18V Cordless (£84.99) (18W).
