Who should buy Shark WV251UK

  • If you have heavy shedding pets, the Shark WV251UK might be a great help because it has a pet hair tool that can easily pick up pet hair that is on the sofa, bed or other furniture.
  • If you often forget to charge your cordless vacuum, you might want to take advantage of the two detachable batteries of the Shark WV251UK. If you forget to charge the battery, you can replace it with your extra, fully charged battery, so that you can still continue with your cleaning.
  • If you are looking for a handheld cordless vacuum that offers various cleaning nozzles, the Shark WV251UK might be the one you are looking for because it has two cleaning nozzles (the pet hair tool and crevice tool).

Who should NOT buy Shark WV251UK

  • If you are on a tight budget and are looking for a cheaper handheld cordless vacuum, you might want to check the Grundig VCH 6130, or the Severin HV 7144.
  • If your house is prone to dust, you might want to consider a vacuum with a bigger dust bin such as the Philips FC6148/01, with a 0.5L capacity, or the Bissell 1987N Pet Hair Eraser with a 0.6L dust bin capacity.

Verdict

The Shark WV251UK is a high-end handheld cordless vacuum, which also means it has a higher price compared to an average handheld cordless vacuum.

The Shark WV251UK boasts two detachable batteries. It gives you double battery life, hence, you can easily replace the drained battery with a fully charged one. However, one battery can only last for about 16 minutes, unlike the AEG HX6-35TM, that has a maximum runtime of 35 minutes.

Unlike other handheld cordless vacuums, such as the AEG HX6-27BM, that does not have additional cleaning attachments, the Shark WV251UK offers two cleaning nozzles (the pet hair tool and crevice tool). The Shark WV251UK allows you to choose a suitable cleaning nozzle, depending on what you will clean.

The disadvantage of the Shark WV251UK is the capacity of its dust bin. Since its design is compact and light, it only has a small space for its dust bin, and so only has a capacity of 0.25L compared to the Bissell 1987N Pet Hair Eraser, with a dustbin capacity of 0.6L.

Overall, the Shark WV251UK has a high price compared to most handheld cordless vacuums, but this might be justified because of its two detachable batteries, various cleaning nozzles and it being lightweight.
