LG CordZero cordless stick vacuum
An Amazon customer who purchased the five-pound vacuum described it as “extremely lightweight” and was pleased with the device’s ability to pick up pet hair without tangling and trapping human hair in its brushes.
“Suction power is excellent on normal mode. It sucks up animal hair easily (I have a pitbull and long-haired cat). Surprisingly very quiet, quieter than my upright Dyson Ball Animal 2, even on turbo. Filters are all washable, handle is very ergonomic, all attachments easily click to attach or remove. Adjustable telescopic handle is great for short folks, as I’m 5’0. Does not tangle and trap long human hair in either of its beater brushes.”
