How LG's CordZero® A9 All

Apr 14, 2023

When it comes to picking a vacuum cleaner, there are two main options.

The first is a cordless vacuum. Light, nimble and easy to use and store due to their compact size, these are a great choice for consumers prioritising convenience.

But they do have their drawbacks. For one, they're a lot less hygienic than more traditional bagged vacuum cleaners, as emptying them forces you to re-release trapped particles into the air – which isn't so great if you have pets, allergies or are sensitive to air quality.

On the other hand, bagged vacuums trap dust particles in a sealed bag, and they generally have a larger dust capacity. But they're bulkier and tethered to a power point, making them more unwieldy.

With benefits and drawbacks for each vacuum type, it can be difficult to know which is the right option for your home – which is why the LG CordZero® A9 Handstick Vacuum with All-In-One Tower is such a welcome addition to the market.

"The benefit of the A9 is it's like combining the convenience of a cordless handstick vacuum cleaner with the hygiene of a bagged vacuum cleaner," explains Dylan Cruickshank, LG Category Marketing Manager.

Bringing together the benefits of both vacuum types while attempting to eliminate their weaknesses is an admirable, if somewhat ambitious, target.

But while LG has earned a reputation for excellence thanks to its range of OLED TVs and washing machines, this product makes it clear its vacuum cleaners also use advanced technology.

Slickly and cleverly constructed, with innovation at the heart of its design, the CordZero® A9 Handstick really does bring together the best of both worlds, says Cruickshank.

One of the vacuum's key features is its ability to automatically empty dust and other particles into the storage bag when it's placed on its docking station to charge.

"As soon as you drop the vacuum cleaner off, it will take care of itself… instead of emptying the dust canister over a bin, it will empty on its own," Cruickshank says.

"It's almost got a second vacuum cleaner in the All-In-One Tower™, where it will take the dust from the handstick vacuum cleaner into a sealed bag, making sure that you don't get dust re-released back into your house."

The CordZero® A9 Handstick's 3-step filtration system then ensures not only that dirt and dust are locked away, thanks to their automatic transfer into a storage bag, but that fine dust particles are removed through the use of two washable filters.

But it's not just hygiene that LG designers had top of mind when designing the A9 CordZero® Handstick – it's convenience.

Take its LG KOMPRESSOR® technology, for instance. A very handy little timesaver, it compacts the dust and hair collected in the dustbin by up to 2.4 times the uncompressed capacity, meaning a significant reduction in how often the vacuum needs to be emptied.

Plus, you'll never have to worry about the frustration of a low battery again. The A9 CordZero® Handstick comes with two interchangeable batteries lasting up to two hours*, meaning one can always be charging while the other is in use.

"If you do have something that needs a heavy clean and you've got to turn up suction power, naturally that will reduce the amount of time that you could do for a total vacuum," Cruickshank says.

"But because you've got another battery charging in the stand itself, whenever you get low on battery, you can just swap the batteries over – within five seconds, you're good to keep going."

At 210 airwatts, the A9 CordZero® Handstick also boasts impressive suction power – so whether you have hard floors or carpet, you’re going to get great results.

The cyclonic air flow of the Smart Inverter Motor™ effectively filters dust particles, and because the vacuum motor is brushless, there's less friction, meaning the motor is incredibly durable (as evidenced by the generous LG 10-year parts warranty^).

The All-In-One Tower™ allows you to simply store all included vacuum's cleaning accessories, so they’re always on hand when you need them, while the vacuum's four-height settings give you greater control for when you’re vacuuming niggly areas like stairs or under furniture.

The built-in control panel enables easy adjustment of settings on the go with Thumb Touch Control, and the ThinQ® app is another plus, letting you check the status of your vacuum's filter, battery and cleaning history.

The app will even run a diagnostic check for you, which takes all the stress out of monitoring and maintaining a vacuum.

Cruickshank says the beauty of the LG A9 CordZero® Handstick is in the unexpected delight it brings to what would otherwise be a mundane task.

"Cleaning isn't the job that people generally look forward to. So any way you can make it more exciting by using technology to improve the way you do your cleaning, that's what it's about."

"It's about making a vacuum cleaner that's easy to use. You're not tethered to a power cord, but you still get good suction power – and on top of that, you don't need to worry about manually emptying its dustbin."

With its intuitive design, time and stress-saving features, and emphasis on hygiene, it is a premium product that's worth every penny.
