The LG CordZero A9 Ultimate is the next best thing. The build is pretty much the same as other cordless vacuums. The design is simple, with a dark gray color scheme. Most of the body is quite heavy at the handle and motor, this provides greater steering control at the expense of shedding excess weight. The LG CordZero A9 Ultimate is very lightweight, it isn’t heavy but neither is it the lightest cordless vacuum out there.  Its build has regular plastic chosen over premium lightweight materials. However, this just displays the emphasis of practicality (which is very important) over design finesse.

The motor sits at the end with the handle, just like every other stick vacuum. It is connected to the floor head with a long tube. The LG CordZero A9 Ultimate also has a neat integrated design, which allows you to shorten the length of the vacuum by adjusting the central stick. This is perfect for cleaning corners, stairs and small spaces.

The joints are a bit stiff, they don’t come together or apart as easily as you’d like but it gets the job done. The cleaner is quite sturdy and stable when everything is in place. It takes some getting used to but after a while, you understand how to get it around and it feels comfortable to use.

The major advancements from previous models are the internal processor and superior suction power. However, this is still a sweet deal, considering what the vacuum can do.


For starters, the LG CordZero A9 Ultimate has three times more suction power than its predecessors. This translates to triple the runtime on high power. This could be attributed to the spike in supplied power rating from 32V to 40V, therefore the motor runs a little faster. This means you will make fewer passes over a patch of floor or carpet to clean it well.

If the LG CordZero A9 Ultimate is charged for 3 hours, it can run for 45 minutes on low power modes and less intensive tasks. High power boost mode is more power chugging and the run time is reduced to much less, about 12 to 15 minutes. It is just easier to stick to the default power setting where you can, as advised. Also, the two batteries provided for the device will let you take charge of your cleaning.

While boost mode enhances the suction power, it’s observed that the vacuum starts to pull quite hard at thinner carpet sections. What this does is slow down the cleaner as it hugs the floor quite tightly, instead of moving along swiftly. But anyway, this is just proof of the powerful cyclone technology the cleaner wields.

The default power setting easily cleans dust, hair and dirt. In fact, you may probably find yourself switching to boost mode just to get it done faster, not out of the cleaner’s inability to finish what it started.

Another clever addition is the flashlight, useful for cleaning in hidden spaces or in the dark corners. A separate setting is available that speeds up the motor when the flashlight is switched on to reel in the dust that is unreachable.

The vacuum head is also pleasantly flexible. It curves and bends into difficult spaces, making it simpler to work around furniture. Vacuuming may not exactly be fun, but the LG CordZero A9 Ultimate is so convenient to use, you almost want to vacuum more often.  It is a giant step in ease over a regular cabled cleaner.

While Dyson may have commercialized cyclone vacuums, LG CordZero A9 Ultimate have taken a bold approach to this technology. The detachable bin makes it so much easier to dispose the collected dirt into ordinary disposal bins in the house.

Final Score:

The LG CordZero A9 Ultimate is both efficient and convenient, reliably vacuuming without the insane cost of other rival machines. This new version offers three times the suction power and gives even the best competition a run for their money.

Charting at 599 dollars it costs a fraction of the other premium cordless machines of its kind while delivering amazing performance. The simple design lets you modify the arrangement of attachments to best clean your house as you see fit. It may be stiff, but it cleans very well. In conclusion, the LG CordZero A9 Ultimate may have made so much with so little, but it achieves its objective just as well as the high end cordless vacuums. For this price, this is perhaps the best one you can find.
