Looking For a Rechargeable Sweeper?

I like these little Shark electric (battery operated) sweepers. My last one lasted for many years. They do a better job on indoor-outdoor carpeting than a big vacuum does, so I use mine every week on the front porch. It's also VERY light, so it's easy to carry down to the basement and do the carpets there too.

This new one isn't as powerful as the old one I had, but it still does a very nice job. For $30, you can't beat it:

They have one that's a little more powerful for $50:


  1. Thank you for sharing. I never thought that a little battery operated sweeper could do the job a big vacuum, let alone a better job. And for only $30? That is a steal! And working for both indoor and outdoor? Who could say no? Thank you so much for sharing this information, it really is useful!

  2. Well, it does a better job than a big vacuum on indoor-outdoor carpets, but a regular vacuum does better on thick indoor carpets. This little sweeper isn't bad indoors either, but you'll probably want to get out the big vacuum every few months.
