Although I’ve already used a robot vacuum in my house, I still need a stick vacuum to clean spaces that the robot couldn’t reach. Moreover, most stick vacuums have much better suction power than robot vacuums, so we can expect much better performance on carpets. The Redkey F10 actually offers much more than an additional vacuum in my house.

Features & Performance
The Redkey F10 comes with familiar cleaning heads that you can find on any other stick vacuum cleaner. The only head I found missing here is a mini motorized tool to clean sofa or mattress. It is quite straightforward to start using the vacuum; I just needed to insert the battery, connect cleaning heads, and start cleaning my house immediately. I really appreciate that the battery is removable with a press of a button, so I could easily replace it when it can no longer hold charge. I’ve used a lot of stick vacuum cleaners and often had to replace battery after approximately 2 years. At this time, I’m quite satisfied with the battery life; I use the vacuum in Auto mode most of the time and it could last over 20 minutes. This is more than enough for cleaning my small house.
Another nice feature is that the dustbin and filters can also be removed and they are washable as well. I’d recommend you to take them apart and clean at least once per month. The Redkey F10 features a 3-layer filtration system, so the dust can be clogged up and block airflow through each of those layers. If you want to maintain the highest suction power, you will need to clean them regularly.
The Redkey has the maximum suction power of 140AW which is pretty decent in the world of budget vacuum cleaners. It does a good job on both hard floor and low-pile carpets. The suction power fades a little when the dust bin is half full but it is recovered as soon as I empty it. The motorized floor head with stiff nylon bristles agitate surfaces very well to dislodge stubborn dirt from the floor.
Although this is a budget product, it has some great features that even the high-end ones don’t have. For instance, the floor head has a built-in LED light to help us see dirt on the floor clearly; This is also helpful when you vacuum under furniture. Besides, the trigger is locked immediately when you press it and you won’t need to hold the trigger the whole time you clean the floor. The Redkey F10 doesn’t have a fancy LED display but it has light indicators to show the current suction power and dirt amount. When you turn on the Auto mode, the vacuum will use the built-in dirt sensor to adjust suction power automatically.
Last but not least, it comes with an aluminum tube with a flexible joint. When cleaning under sofa or bed, you can break the tube in the middle with just a press of a button, then the tube will lay lower and you no longer have to kneel or bend down.
- Reasonable price
- Good battery life
- Useful flexible tube
- Washable filters
- Not including mini tool to clean sofa/bed
- Needs to be cleaned regularly to maintain good suction
The Redkey F10 might not compete with high-end stick vacuums which cost more than twice its price. However, most average consumers will be happy with this budget product. I’m using it along with my robot vacuum and I’m totally satisfied with its performance. If they included a mini motorized tool, that would be an easy recommendation from me.
