I researched over 30 vacuums before deciding on the Tineco Pure ONE S12 to replace my heavy, clunky Electrolux canister vacuum.
This S12 is the vacuum that’s lightweight, but still sucks the dog hair out of the carpet.
The S12 has 100 minutes of battery life, and it transforms into a handheld vac in about 5 seconds flat.
The S12 is a direct drive vacuum. That means it has a motor where the beater bar meets the floor. Most stick vacuums don’t have this feature, including the models prior to this Tineco series.
The S12 is incredibly lightweight, and easy to hold. It easily cleans around corners with just a little twist of your wrist.
I have arthritis in my elbows, and I never regret using this vacuum cleaner. It’s so easy to use and lightweight, it’s really a great vacuum for seniors.
The S12 probably has the best suction of any of the cordless stick vacuums. It blows Dyson away with battery life and reliability.
Tineco customer service is fast, helpful and friendly. I don’t see people saying that about Dyson when their vacuums break.
This S12 picks up all the dog hair in my carpets.
I use this machine on my hardwood floors, but some people say not to. If your floors are easily scratched then you must get the Tineco floor brush. The combo brush rubberized fins can scratch a delicate floor. Go ahead and use the beater bar on tile, though.
Most of all, I love this vacuum because it is going to save me from falling down the stairs. For 30 years I’ve been using my Electrolux canister on the carpeted stairs. The canister is wider than my steps are deep, so it always hangs a bit over the edge of the step. It’s awkwardly heavy to move from step to step. The cord does its best to trip me, while the vacuum hose refuses to twist around comfortably into the right stair-cleaning position.
I’ve cleaned my stairs with both the S12 stick and the handheld configurations. I place the powered mini-head or the powered full-size head on the stair, while I stand underneath. I don’t have to bend down, I don’t have to move the cord, and I don’t have to move a heavy canister. It never bothers my arthritis, and it doesn’t try to kill me.
Is the Tineco Pure One S12 the best cordless vacuum of 2020? Yes, it’s the best vacuum of 2020, and it’s the best vacuum for seniors.

Tineco Pure One S12 the Cordless Vacuum Cleaner Cons
- The non-powered tools (crevice, brush) lose suction when on the end of the pole (but work fine when the vacuum is used as a handheld)
