Ryobi Evercharge Stick Vacuum Cleaner + Giveaway

Isn't he cute??

That's our Louie, our little Yorkshire Terrier and I have to apologize for waiting too long, almost a year, to properly introduce him around here (he's had his debut on Instagram πŸ˜‰).

Well, this post is a tool review, but here I am showing you pictures of this little guy that you haven't seen much on the blog.

Let me tell you very shortly why. - Louie is our first pet. We've never dared to have a pet because any pet would
drive mister RLC completely nuts! My son asked so many times for a dog, but every time he asked, his dad said nope, no way.

So, how did we ended up with Louie, you might ask?

What started as a pet sitting favor for a friend turned into pet ownership after our friend lost his battle against cancer. A bittersweet way for our family to experience the joy of having a pet.

So, after living with Louie for a few months I knew I had to do something to tame the amount of hair/dust that was invading our home. And not that dust and dirt didn't accumulate before having him, but it kind of doubled after he came to live with us.

Here he is at his favorite spot.
We controlled the barking, but he still keeps a close eye on those passersby. :D

And that's one of the spots where, as my friend said perfectly, "hair balls roll across the floor like tumbleweeds in the Wild West!"

So, when given the option to pick a power tool to try it in one of my upcoming projects, I didn't hesitate much, I needed a light weight vacuum cleaner in order to keep my sanity.


I've been using the RYOBI Stick Vacuum Cleaner for three months now. My first cordless, lightweight vacuum I've had in my entire life and I'm in love!

I like that it's cordless and I really love that it belongs to the Ryobi ONE+ platform which means I can use any of my Ryobi batteries to put this vacuum to good use.

The Ryobi Stick Vacuum comes with a crevice tool, dust brush, charging mount with accessory storage and a 4.0Ah Ryobi battery.

The Evercharge technology means the vacuum is charged and ready to clean when you are. You place your vac there on the docking station which immediately connects thru the vacuum to the battery.


You can keep track of the battery power by looking at the measuring lights on the battery itself...

Or the lights below the handle where a green light tells you what's going on. When both green lights are flashing, the battery is being evaluated. When the right side light flashes, the battery is charging. Solid lights mean the battery is fully charged.

The dust brush and crevice tool can be neatly stored by the side of the vacuum.

And I usually keep the power head on the tool and ready to vacuum floors. It runs on two wheels and lays flat on the floor, great for cleaning those hard to reach places. The roller starts spinning as soon as you turn on the vac.

The brushless motor provides a better suction and longer run time. The specifications claim that you can run this vacuum for 45 min on one 4.0Ah battery, that's on the lower speed. On high speed it should run for 25 minutes. But reality is, I have never run out of battery. I usually do one hour cleanings or one at a time room cleanings, that's the reason why I end up with more battery than needed.

Now, if you ask me if this small vacuum can replace one of the big sisters, I might say no. But again, maybe. I haven't use my big vacuum cleaner in a loooong time.

The vacuum has two speeds that you can change by pressing the power button. I usually use the high speed when vacuuming carpets. The lower speed is used when cleaning hardwood floors.


Each of the accessories can connect directly to the console and they can also connect to the extension wand.

I use the extension wand + dust brush for cleaning those moldings high on the wall. The crevice tool is the way to go to clean my minivan or to catch all the dust balls in the corners of the rooms!


I prefer cleaning the steps by removing the extension wand and using either of the accessory tools.


Cleaning the dust cup is easy. Push the bottom on the cup to open the top flap to get rid of the dirt or push the button on the side to completely remove the dust cup to remove dirt and to clean the filter.

  1. So sorry about the loss of your friend and how sweet of y'all to make that cute baby a part of your family. Louie, must be a mix because yorkies don't barely shed at all. That's why so many people with allergies get them as a pet. I would like to get a cordless vacuum so I don't have to pull out the big gun so often.

    1. Oh Kim, he's been a blessing to our family. πŸ’“ And the one who didn't want a pet is the one that is spoiling Louie the most! πŸ˜ƒ You're right, he must be a mix.

  2. Bless you for taking in sweet Louie. He is adorable! Dogs bring a lot of joy and companionship to a family, and a lot of dog hair!
    When my husband vacuums and empties it into the garbage can, it looks like there is another dog in there. We have to Bassett - mix rescued dogs and they are our children.

  14. Thanks for the detailed review. Our previous cordless vac worked well until the battery would no longer hold a charge for more than a couple minutes. This looks so cool and having a ONE+ that can charged and/or swapped out as needed is a huge plus.

  22. As the proud owner of a beautiful & hairy black lab-and the soon to be mama of a little boy, I need to get a vacuum cleaner in my life! I've been living in our home with hardwood floors with only a broom, swiffer, and mop but I know a vacuum would come in so much handy. I think the number one thing is run-time, you don't want to run out of juice when you're halfway through the job!

  28. Ease of use would be the best benefit!!

    ReplyDelete
  29. The most important feature would be the fact it's cordless. That's such a benefit not having to mess with extension cords.

    ReplyDelete
  30. The most important feature is how well it picks up the dirt and debris. On a Ryobi product, I'm not really worried about battery life since I have several other batteries and chargers because I have a number of Ryobi tools already and a Ryobi vacuum would be excellent to clean up the mess from the other tools.

  52. Louie is absolutely adorable, & what a special story about how he came into your life! 😊 Animals have always been an important part of mine, as well as the messes that accompany... lol. I think the most important feature to me would be the ability to easily use attachments & get into nooks & crannies! Capacity is not as important to me, since our place is very small and I'm happy to empty it after each use. Our big upright vacuum takes up way too much space, alas. :( This one looks amazing!!

    ReplyDelete
  53. I need this in my life! My dog sheds everywhere!

    ReplyDelete
