Where to Buy
 

The corded Hoover Flair Bagless with Powered Nozzle S2220 is a step above a similar model, the Hoover Flair Bagless S2200 , with the addition of a powered brush roll, which makes it better for tackling dirt on carpet and rugs (though still not as good as a full-size upright vacuum cleaner). Since it's meant only for quick jobs, some users report that it can overheat if used to vacuum a whole room of wall-to-wall carpeting. The Hoover Flair Bagless with Powered Nozzle S2220 has a 20-foot power cord that releases with the push of a button, so it eliminates some of the unraveling hassle common to corded stick vacuums. The 10-inch nozzle swivels, making it easy to maneuver around furniture. At 9 pounds, it's more than twice as heavy as the budget-priced Dirt Devil Versa Power Stick SD20000 ($30) , though the Dirt Devi model is less powerful.
