Levoit LVAC-200

A budget cordless stick vacuum that exceeded our expectations on both hard floor and carpet!

Levoit LVAC-200 cordless vacuum performance and evaluation

For our Levoit LVAC-200 cordless vacuum review, we performed practical assessments to see how it measured up in various cleaning scenarios, and it did really well. Here’s what we found from hands-on experience with this cordless stick vacuum.

Debris pickup

The LVAC-200 features a well-designed floorhead that excels at debris pickup across various surfaces. On carpets, it successfully captured all debris types and sizes without any snow plowing or clogging issues. It also performed above average in our carpet deep clean evaluation, effectively removing deeply embedded debris like sand from carpets. 

The LVAC-200 also proved equally impressive on hard floors, handling large and even some extra-large debris very well, which is pretty unique.

Also, a soft felt squeegee at the bottom of the floorhead enhances fine debris collection and improves the seal on hard floors. This no doubt contributed to its better-than-average performance in our crevice pickup evaluation.

Levoit LVAC-200 features


Levoit has built a reputation for offering great value with its air purifiers, and they are continuing this trend with the LVAC-200 cordless vacuum. While it isn’t the least-priced model on the market, it’s competitively priced and falls well within the budget category. It’s also the most affordable vacuum we’ve ever evaluated to score as high as it did in our system for performance and features.

Active hair removal combs

The LVAC-200 is equipped with active hair removal combs inside its brush housing to remove long hair during vacuuming—an uncommon feature in budget vacuums. It also performed exceptionally well in our 14-inch hair evaluation.

This feature is handy, especially if you have pets at home that shed lots of hair.

Filtration system

Another standout feature of the Levoit LVAC-200 is the sealed high-efficiency filtration system, which prevents dust and odors from re-entering the air supply.

This is another feature that’s less common with budget cordless vacuums. Models within the same price range often lack that level of filtration. 

However, given Levoit’s reputation as an air purifier brand, it’s no surprise that they would prioritize air purification in their vacuum design.

Ease of use

The LVAC-200 cordless vacuum scored exceptionally for ease of use. Its handle is lighter than average, and the swivel mechanism is highly responsive for greater maneuverability. For example, you can lay the cordless vacuum flat to grab debris under furniture.

It can also stand upright, which is great for storage and user experience in general. For example, you could leave it standing up to grab something during a vacuuming session without worrying about the cordless vacuum falling. This is yet another rare feature of a cordless stick vacuum within this price range.

Battery life 

The official battery life figures of the LVAC-200 are slightly above average.

It has two power settings: low and max. According to Levoit, the vacuum can operate for up to 50 minutes on low power using just the suction hand tools, 30 minutes on low power with the floorhead attached, and 12 minutes on max power with the floorhead.

Our evaluations were conducted primarily on low power mode, which was more than sufficient for regular cleaning tasks. 

However, if you have lots of carpets in your home, switching to max power for deep cleaning is recommended. Depending on your usage intensity, the overall runtime could be reduced to about 20 to 25 minutes. Although the cordless stick vacuum has a removable battery, which is advantageous. 

Additional batteries or replacements

You can buy additional batteries for extended cleaning or more run time. Plus, unlike many manufacturers, Levoit offers replacement batteries in stock and at a reasonable price.

Attachment set

The attachment set is satisfactory. It comes with two hand tools: a dusting brush or crevice tool and a 2-in-1 pet tool designed to tackle pet hair and dander on various surfaces.

There’s also a bright LED light on the floorhead that allows you to see in low-light conditions. It’s particularly useful for spotting debris you might otherwise miss during cleaning sessions. 

Cons of the Levoit LVAC-200

No product is without potential drawbacks. So, in this section of our Levoit LVAC-200 review, we’ll explore some potential cons so you have a balanced view of the product.

Raw power

The cordless stick vacuum’s raw power was mixed. It performed above average in our sealed suction evaluation, but its airflow at the head yielded below-average results. It also scored slightly below average in the unsealed suction evaluation.  But despite the mixed outcomes, it did great in every evaluation that measured real-world pickup performance. So we aren’t sure these figures matter that much.

Shape of the handle

Another downside concerns the shape of the cordless vacuum’s handle. As previously noted, the handle is lighter than average, making it easier to use for vacuuming floors and maneuverability in general.

However, that doesn’t fully translate when using it as a handheld device. The handle’s unusual center of gravity becomes more noticeable in this mode. Although manageable, you may not want to use it as a handheld for prolonged vacuuming sessions.

Bin size

Its bin size is smaller than average, which may mean more frequent emptying during extensive cleaning sessions. As for the button controls, the cordless vacuum has an on/off button and another one for switching power levels. It also lacks an easy-to-read battery life indicator or any LED screen, which positions it on the more basic side as far as the user interface goes. 

Levoit LVAC-200 review: value and final thoughts

Overall, the Levoit LVAC-200 achieved impressive high scores and the highest within its price range by a considerable margin. Given these findings, the LVAC-200 is now our favorite budget cordless vacuum. The model’s affordability and high performance make it a good choice for anyone who wants great vacuuming without spending too much. If that aligns with your needs, then the Levoit LVAC-200 may be right for your home.
