In household chores, vacuuming is one of the most important tasks. This is because this task ensures that our floor is 100% clean (dust-free and parasite-free, if you are a pet owner as well) and safe for our health. Unfortunately, choosing a vacuum cleaner is easier said than done. There are lots of factors to consider like the brand, bagless or not, cordless or not, and more. So, the best thing we can do is to research all options and find out which of those products fits our needs. I focused my research in 4 parts: convenience to use, lifespan and maintenance needed, battery life and disadvantages. And after thorough research online, I finally found the vacuum cleaner that perfectly fit my needs and that is Proscenic P8 Cordless Stick Vacuum Cleaner.
The table below will show you some of the specifications of Proscenic P8 Cordless Stick Vacuum Cleaner.

Review of Proscenic P8 Cordless Stick Vacuum Cleaner
For the more in-depth details of Proscenic P8 Cordless Stick Vacuum Cleaner, I will discuss it according to the 4 parts I have mentioned above.
1. Convenience to use
Since vacuuming is a regular chore we do at home, it is just right that the vacuum cleaner we use is easy to handle and operate. This is one of the reasons I chose Proscenic P8 Cordless Stick Vacuum Cleaner as it only weighs 4.5 lbs. and can easily convert into a handheld cordless vacuum cleaner.
So after using it on floors, you can easily switch it into handheld vacuum cleaner to clean the ceiling, corners of the room and even the inside of your car. And when you are done, you can hang it on the wall.
In terms of operating it, you can easily turn it ON by pulling its trigger. If you want to increase the power, you just have to press again the trigger. While for its control, it has a fingertip touch control design where you can easily switch the modes from carpet to hard floor.
2. Lifespan and Maintenance Needed
After ensuring that Proscenic P8 Cordless Stick Vacuum Cleaner is convenient to use, the next information that I have researched is how long it can last.
This is one of the most important details that we, consumers, must know before purchasing a vacuum cleaner, or any product. So, we can immediately determine if that product is worth buying.
Unfortunately, Proscenic does not state the actual lifespan for their P8 Cordless Stick Vacuum Cleaner. But according to the article that I have read, a vacuum cleaner can last for 8 years. If this is true, it is a total money saver!
But in my opinion, a vacuum cleaner can last longer than that if we give the necessary care and maintenance it needed.
This is another good point of Proscenic P8 Cordless Stick Vacuum Cleaner because it only requires little maintenance. This is great for people who have a busy schedule.
For its maintenance, you can start by checking all parts of the vacuum cleaner – roller brush, dustbin, vacuum body (especially the silicone piece). This is to ensure a smooth suction of the vacuum cleaner.
Also, almost every part of Proscenic P8 Cordless Stick Vacuum Cleaner is detachable and washable – dustbin, vacuum body, filter, and etc. So, whenever you clean it, you have to detach it carefully and follow the instructions on how to clean it (as stated in the manual).
3. Battery Life
Proscenic P8 Cordless Stick Vacuum Cleaner is powered by a lithium-ion rechargeable battery. This battery is a good point because the lithium-ion battery is known for its reliability.
This battery is equipped with a temperature sensor, a voltage tap and converter, and a well-ventilated case. The vent in the case is responsible for preventing the battery from an explosion.
This battery has a total capacity of 2200mAh that can run up to 35 minutes per charge. But the runtime can be lessened if you use the maximum power mode.
A little tip: If you want to save the battery’s energy, avoid turning it ON and OFF frequently.
Just like in any other electronic devices, Proscenic P8 Cordless Stick Vacuum Cleaner has its fair share of disadvantages. In my opinion, this is very important to know because this is the only way we can fully understand the ups and downs of the product.
For Proscenic P8 Cordless Stick Vacuum Cleaner, there are 4 disadvantages and those are:
- You cannot use it in outdoor
This is expected because there is a notice included. But I still used it on my deck and garage when the floor is dry.
- There is no OFF option for brush bar when using in hard floors
For this disadvantage, I found it as not a big deal because it still can work well on the hard floor. Except if you have a delicate floor, this is not the best option for those types of floor.
- You cannot use it for deep cleaning
Deep cleaning is one of the most common ways to thoroughly clean a carpet. Unfortunately, Proscenic P8 Cordless Stick Vacuum Cleaner could not do that. This is because it does not have the power and agitation needed for deep cleaning.
Also, because of that reason, you can only use this vacuum cleaner for low thick carpets.
- Lastly, it does not have an animal hair brush
If you are a pet owner like me, this is going to be a negative point for Proscenic P8 Cordless Stick Vacuum Cleaner. But when I used it, surprisingly, it did a satisfying job.
This is due to its included stiff bristle tool which works well in cleaning pet hairs on upholstery. So if you have a pet that does not shed hair that much, this is still a good vacuum cleaner to use.
Aside from the above-mentioned features, Proscenic P8 Cordless Stick Vacuum Cleaner is flexible to use because of the following:
It is wireless which gives us more freedom to move around and, at the same time, eliminating the occurrence of getting tripped over its cord.
Its’ handle can rotate up to 180 degrees on left and right, and 90 degrees on front.
Aside from its extension hose, it also comes with five additional tools such as soft dusting brush, slit cleaning soft hair, multi-angled stiff brush, round bristle tool, and main motorized head.
A little tip: The included tools are all effective in cleaning different parts of the house and car. But it still best to use each of them by their purpose like the round bristle tool, it is good to use for cleaning small areas like cabinets, computer keyboard, and bookshelves.
While the main motorized head is great for cleaning bare floors (e.g. hardwood, tiles, etc.) and low thick carpets.
With the above-mentioned flexibility, it can guarantee that you can easily access every corner of your home and car.
Also when you purchase Proscenic P8 Cordless Stick Vacuum Cleaner, it includes a wall mount, battery charger, dusting brush and a crevice tool. A little tip: the crevice tool is great to use in the in-between areas of the car seats, bed, and couches.
When I unboxed Proscenic P8 Cordless Stick Vacuum Cleaner, the first thing I did is read the manual… the warranty to be exact. This is for me to be aware of the overall coverage of the warranty, and its terms and conditions.
And just like any other electronic devices, Proscenic P8 Cordless Stick Vacuum Cleaner comes with a 1-year warranty.
Cleaning is part of our daily lives. So, we need cleaning equipment that we can rely on at all times.
The features mentioned above are just some of the important details that we must know before purchasing a vacuum cleaner, or any product. These details will serve as our assurance that it fits perfectly to our needs and it will work properly for a long period of time.
Fortunately, for vacuum cleaners, Proscenic P8 Cordless Stick Vacuum Cleaner has proven to be a reliable vacuum cleaner for our carpets. I love how easy it is to detach every part of it and clean them. It is just a bonus that it is also lightweight, easy to use, and flexible to use on carpets, floors, ceilings and in-between spaces.
My initial concern for this vacuum cleaner is its runtime. Since it is cordless, the time spent will be very limited. But surprisingly, it did not become a problem since its runtime is just enough for the whole cleaning session.
If ever it is not enough for you, it is all right because the charging time is relatively fast.
Overall, even it has some disadvantages but with its budget-friendly price and suction performance, this vacuum cleaner is very impressive and versatile.
