Shark IZ862H Stratos Cordless Vacuum Review

Vacuums are one of the household items that haven’t changed much over the decades. Tune into any 1950’s sitcom and you’re bound to see someone using a vacuum – and you immediately know it’s a vacuum because it still looks like a vacuum. And while various changes in the world of vacuums have occurred since the black-and-white TV days, it seems that all of the “basics” have more or less remained the same. Until the Shark Stratos came to town.

Shark IZ862H Stratos Roller pickup

The Shark IZ862H Stratos features 2 rollers, known as DuoClean Powerfins Hairpro (say that five times fast!), which ensure the best possible hair pickup possible. In fact, the Stratos picks up hair better than any other cordless vacuum – and according to the reviews, it does a great job!

Beware of one thing, though; the Stratos mentions “no hair wrap” with their rollers – but several reviewers have experienced this on one of the rollers. Well, you can’t win ‘em all.

LED display

A remarkably 21st-century feature, the Stratos features an LED display that shows battery life, suction levels, and more! Quite an upgrade from the little dial on the front of most vacuums! It says level 5 but I still can’t pick up that bit of fur in the middle of the room.

Clean Sense IQ

OK, we’re really loving this feature! The Stratos boasts an infrared sensor that detects dirt – that you can’t even see – and increases power as needed. According to several user reviews, this in turn saves battery life, as it will automatically adjust to a lower power level when the floor isn’t very dirty. And speaking of batteries.

Battery life

The Stratos claims to have a 60-minute run time (when fully charged). However, a lot of users state that the true run time is closer to 30 minutes and that the 60-minute claim is only if the Stratos is running at the lowest speed without any attachments. Which, let’s be honest, isn’t how most of us vacuum!

Suction

A 25-volt vacuum should be able to deliver some impressive results – and judging by most of the reviews, the Stratos certainly seems to do so. A majority of buyers have great things to say about the cleaning power, pet owners in particular! There’s a reason we call them “fur babies” with emphasis on “fur”!

MultiFlex Wand

Another genius upgrade to the standard vacuum – the Stratos features a flexible wand that enables you to more easily vacuum under low tables, beds, and anywhere you feel the need to clean (but maybe have neglected because, you know, our backs aren’t what they used to be!). No more moving heavy furniture or crawling around on floors with a vacuum hose in your hand! The universe is thanked.

Shark IZ862H Stratos Final Words

The Stratos is truly a technological wonder. Just when we were beginning to think that the humble, time-tested vacuum could not be more advanced, the folks at Shark proved that it could be! And by a lot. The Jetsons would be proud.
