16 April 2010

A new 'designer' cordless vacuum cleaner, that can be used as either a stick vacuum or handheld, has been launched by AEG-Electrolux.

The compact Ergorapido runs off a rechargeable 12V battery that AEG-Electrolux says can be used for 20 minutes. It costs £129.99.

Features of the AEG-Electrolux Ergorapido

Unusually, you can use the Ergorapido as a stick vacuum or as a handheld that can be released using a button on the side of the vacuum.

It's bagless and available in four colours: cassis, pastel green, fresh yellow and antique steel. It weighs 2.4kg.

Which? vacuum cleaner expert Vivienne Fitzroy says: 'A two-in-one cordless vacuum cleaner that can be used as either a stick or a handheld vacuum isn't common so this has the potential to be very convenient. We'll be trying it out and reporting our findings in a first look review online soon.'
