Vacuum cleaner review: Shark DuoClean Cordless Vacuum IF130UKTH

Overall score: 91/100

Tested August 2019

Very much like the Shark DuoClean Cordless Vacuum IF260UKTH, this near identical model also folds in half for neater storage. It comes with four tools and one rechargeable battery (one less than the IF260UKTH), which takes around three and a half hours to fully charge.


The foldable and cordless design of this vacuum is great for those with limited storage space. It’s a good multipurpose cleaner that has lots of useful tools and scored well in our tests.

It’s good at picking up larger crumb and hard floor pick-up. However, it was only satisfactory at removing fine dust from carpets. So, if you’ve got carpets, hang onto a full-sized vacuum for a more thorough clean. But for those with mostly hard floors or pet owners, it’s an excellent choice. Thanks to its main floor-head and the motorised pet tool, it was superb at picking up animal hair.

We found it easy and intuitive to use, and that it manoeuvred well on all floor surfaces. Though it felt a little heavy after prolonged use. The handheld unit was quite weighty and bulky, but this only became noticeable in more confined spaces (such as car cleaning) and after using it for a while. We also liked that the flexible wand bends, which made it easier to vacuum under low furniture and helped those who generally struggle to bend down.
