Levoit Cordless Vacuum Cleaner LVAC 120 Review

The newly introduced Levoit LVAC 120 is the first vacuum designed and made by the leader in air filtering and humidifying products. The 2-in-1 LVAC 120 is the result of more than 2 years of development, and many more years of experience in creating products which help improve the quality of the air in homes and offices.

The powerful and yet lightweight Levoit LVAC 120 can be used as a convenient stick vacuum, as well as a handheld vacuum for floor-to-ceiling cleaning.

The vacuum has 150-watt motor and an impressive suction of 10 kPa, which will allow you to clean all kinds of surfaces and floors, including hard floors, carpeting, upholstery, and others.

The roller brush has bright LED headlights, so you will never miss a crumb, hair or speck of dirt again, even it is underneath the furniture, or in a dark corner.

The innovative cordless vacuum has a special anti-clog feature, which prevents the entanglement of hair or string on the roller brush.

It is sold with three useful attachments so you can clean every nook and cranny and crevice in your furniture and home.

The vacuum is lightweight, so it will not be a hassle to use even by people with weak arms and hands. As a stick vacuum, the LVAC120 weighs 8.15 lbs., and as a handheld one – it is less than 3 lbs.

Its handle offers an ergonomic and comfortable grip.

The first vacuum made and offered by Levoit is battery operated and comes with a lithium-ion battery with a charging time of just 5 hours, and a runtime of up to 40 minutes.

Needless to say, using the LVAC120 without the hassle of dealing with a power cord, and having to plug and unplug it as you move around the house is a significant plus for this appliance.

Once you are done with the cleaning, you can quickly empty the 2.1 cup dust canister thanks to its easy-empty, mess-free design.

As for storage, you don’t have to worry about the vacuum tipping over, because it has a foldable self-standing design, or can be hung on the included wall mount for saving storage space.

The vacuum is versatile, convenient, and easy to use, and is offered at a very reasonable price.

Read on to find out everything you know about the first vacuum made by Levoit – the amazing LVAC 120.

The design and size

Levoit Stick

The first notable feature of this cordless 1-in-1 vacuum cleaner is its compact size. When it is completely assembled along with the main carpet attachment, it is just 30.3 (L) x 10.4 (W) and 5.3 (D) inches.

The entire unit weighs 8.15 lbs. when fully assembled, and less than 3 lbs. when used as a handheld vacuum.

It has a clear dust cup, so you can keep an eye on how full it is while cleaning.

The vacuum has an ergonomically designed handle in a pistol grip style. It is located on top of the dust canister.

Thanks to its easy detachable handheld upper part, you can easily switch between carpet and floor cleaning and upholstery and cobweb cleaning.

In fact, with this light and versatile vacuum, you can clean your entire home from the floors up to the ceilings with ease.

The battery is located just below the handle, which provides added weight balance and an easy of use.

The LVAC 120 is sold with a 1-year warranty by Levoit, which you can easily double and extend to 2 years, only by registering your purchase.

Storage

The vacuum can be stored easily on itself thanks to its self-standing design. You can also use the included wall mount and charger to store the unit behind a door or in a closet without the risk of it falling over.

The wall mount which is also a charger can be attached with a screw into a stud, or with a drywall anchor.

Once mounted, you can easily hook up the vacuum for space-saving storage and charging. The vacuum will take up only 6 inches of your precious space when hung on the wall. This means that you can store it in the tightest place safely and conveniently.

It will also prevent your children or pets from accidentally knocking it over and hurting themselves or damaging the vacuum.

The included attachments

The Levoit LVAC 120 comes with a main roller brush and two other nifty added accessories.

The main roller brush has a row of four bright LED headlights, which will allow you to spot every single speck of dust and dirt even in the darkest parts of your home, or under the furniture. This is a feature which can usually be found in upright vacuums, and not so often in stick vacuums, so it is definitely something worth noting.

The roller brush mount can pivot easily in any direction, which makes vacuuming around and under the furniture easier than ever.

The roller brush also has a unique anti-clogging serrated edge which will cut the hairs while you are cleaning, and thus prevent them from getting entangled around the brush and clogging it.

Apart from the roller brush, you will also receive a crevice tool and a 2-in-1 brush attachment with the LVAC 120.

With the help of the crevice tool, you can reach inside all of the hardest to reach corners and cracks. The 2-in-1 brush nozzle is perfect for cleaning your tables, desks, upholstery, and other flat surfaces. The brush is designed to safely and efficiently clean even the most delicate surfaces without scratching or otherwise damaging them. It can also be used for vacuuming curtains.

Its cleaning performance

The 2-in-1 cordless vacuum by Levoit is powered by a roaring 120-watt motor and an 18-volt lithium-ion battery. Thanks to them, it offers a powerful suction of up to 10 kilopascals.

The LVAC 120 generates 1.5 PSI of negative pressure, which is comparable to that of a corded upright vacuum cleaner.

With features like this, it comes to no surprise that the Levoit LVAC 120 is capable of picking up much more than just tiny specks of dust and debris. In fact, you can use it to collect spills of cat food or litter, as well as other heavy dry debris and spills.

The 2-in-1 vacuum has two suction power modes to choose from, so you can switch to the lower power to save battery life too.

When we mentioned spills, we must note that this stick vacuum cannot clean up wet spills.

Its battery and filter

The 18-volt lithium-ion battery of the LVAC 120 requires 5 hours to charge completely. When fully charged, you can use the vacuum for up to 40 minutes. This is sufficient for cleaning an average household – all surfaces curtains and ceilings included.

The vacuum is easy to charge, especially if you choose to use the added wall mount, which also doubles as a charger.

Once you are done with the cleaning, all you need to do is attach it to its mount, and it will charge itself. The charger will automatically switch off when the battery is full so that the appliance will be ready for use for the next spill or the next deep cleaning of your home.

If you need the vacuum for a more extended cleaning, you can attach it to its charger while you are cleaning up and dusting other parts of the home, so its battery gets some added juice which will allow you to complete the whole deep cleaning without the need to wait for 5 hours for a complete charge.

The Levoit LVAC 120 uses a cyclonic vacuuming technology, which creates a tiny whirlwind inside the dust bin. This ensures that all the collected dust and particles collect on the bottom and sides for better airflow.

There is a filter on the outflow vent of the dust bin, which, too, can easily get clogged when the canister is completely full.

This means that you will need to make sure that you empty the dust canister when it is about half full if you want the vacuum to clean efficiently.

The dust cup itself is very easy to empty. It is made of plastic so you can quickly and safely rinse it under running water and then just wipe it dry.

You will also want to remove and wash the mesh filter for a better performance of the vacuum and cleaner air at home. You can rinse it safely under the tap and let the trapped dirt and dust get drained.
