I’ve used dozens of cordless vacuums in the last few years, including expensive ones like Dyson V11 Outsize. However, my daily driver is actually a very affordable product, the Tineco A11 Master. What features make it my favorite cordless vacuum? Let’s figure out in the review.
Design & Features
The Tineco A11 Master comes with a bunch of accessories, including a multi-tasker power brush, a soft-roller power brush, a mini power brush, a crevice nozzle, a long soft crevice tool, a 2-in-1 dusting brush, a flexible multi-angle tube, a soft dusting brush, a flexible extension hose, a spare microfiber pre-filter, a pre-filter cleaning tool, an extra battery, and a charging dock called powerhouse.
While other manufacturers provide redundant accessories that I never use, Tineco’s accessories are much more useful than I expected. What I love the most is the charging dock which can be used to charge the vacuum, an extra battery and accommodate frequently used accessories. I prefer the charging dock over wall-mounted one because it is more stable and I don’t want to drill my wall.
I also love that there is an extra battery; That means we have two 2,500 mAh Li-ion batteries with the total runtime of up to 60 minutes. My house is around 1,200 sq. ft. and I sometimes have to use the 2nd battery, especially during thorough cleaning sessions. It is very easy to replace the battery as we just need to press two buttons on the two sides to remove it.
The design of the vacuum is unique with a transparent casing which allows us to see everything inside, except for the motor. Another useful feature is the trigger lock; I love this feature because I no longer have to hold the trigger all the time. I can’t understand why high-end vacuums like Dyson don’t have this. I often use the trigger lock in combination with the flexible extension hose to clean my car’s interior; It makes the work effortless as I don’t need to touch the vacuum body and just focus on maneuvering the cleaning head instead.
The maximum suction power of the A11 Master is 120 air watts, that means it is just a little more powerful than the Dyson V8. The 450W motor is quite modest as compared to recent cordless vacuums, however, it is still good enough to take care of most of our cleaning needs. In fact, I tested the vacuum on both hard floors and low- to medium-pile carpets; The A11 Master’s effectiveness is really amazing and it cleans my floors very well. I’m using a robot vacuum and after each of its cleaning session, I often have to use the A11 Master on my carpets again and it was always able to suck out a significant amount of dirt.
However, this is still not a perfect stick vacuum since its cyclone system is inferior as compared to Dyson’s. Therefore, you should use the pre-filter cleaning tool to clean the pre-filter once or twice per week to retain a good suction. There is an extra pre-filter and the cleaning process takes less than 1 minute, so this is not really a big issue for most of us.
- Beautiful transparent design
- Trigger lock
- Useful accessories
- Great performance on both hard floors and carpets
- Good battery runtime
- Average suction power
- Pre-filter requires more frequent cleaning
The Tineco A11 Master is not the most powerful cordless vacuums on the market but it gets the job done at an affordable price. The fact that I am still using the product after 5-6 months proves that this is a great choice for most average consumers. We at TechWalls highly recommend it.
