My house is filled with Shark/Ninja products.  Of course you will all think it is because I am getting them in order to do these reviews but that is not the case. I was a Shark/Ninja fan way before I started doing product reviews for the company. I consider myself a very picky and savvy consumer. I do my research before I make a purchase so when it was time to purchase my first Shark product I had done enough research to know that it was the correct choice.  Since that first product purchase I can say with confidence and complete honesty that I have never regretted any of my Shark/Ninja purchases over the past 10+ years.  I recently purchased a Shark mini-vacuum that was only carried on QVC and paid full price since my husband really wanted something small but powerful for his needs.  Once again I do not regret my purchase we use the Shark mini-vacuum almost every day for light jobs around the house.

Shark Ionflex 2X Cord Free Ultra Light Vacuum Model IF252

I was blessed to receive for review the latest in the Shark series of vacuums, the Shark Ionflex 2X Cord Free Ultra Light Vacuum Model IF252.  This vacuum is cord-free for the most convenient way to clean your house.  I have had other similar vacuums but the cord was always the issue getting in my way, tripping over it, causing me to stop and start to replug into an electrical outlet but not anymore. The Shark Ionflex 2X Cord Free Ultra Light Vacuum Model IF252 is an amazing cleaning tool with the battery power to clean uninterrupted for a total of approximately (see chart below):

  • Hand vacuum only in “Max Power” mode: approximately 11 minutes
  • Hand vacuum only in “Extend Runtime” mode: approx. 23 minutes
  • Floor mode in “Max Power”: approx. 12 minutes
  • Floor mode in “Extend Runtime”: approx. 20 minutes
  • Carpet mode in “Max Power”: approx. 11 minutes
  • Carpet mode in “Extend Runtime”: approx. 14 minutes

Weighing in at only 8.7 pounds people who may have issues with the weight of a heavy vacuum or other medical issues this is a dream.  I have issues with my wrists, so a heavy vacuum is not possible for me, this model is just what the doctor ordered.

It takes approximately 3.5 hours to charge one battery but with 2 batteries at your disposal you will never run out of battery power.

With no bags to buy or replace the Shark Ionflex has a removable dust cup that is easy to see exactly when it has reached it’s capacity.

With 300 Watts of power your Shark Ionflex 2X Cord Free Ultra Light Vacuum Model IF252 is a powerful vacuum to handle any job big or small in your house.  It has the ability to do bare floors and carpets with the brushroll attached.  The brushroll has illuminated lights to lead the way so you can see even the smallest specks of dust or dirt.

Remove the brushroll and multiflex wand and snap on an attachment and you’ve got the best and most powerful hand held vacuum for smaller jobs. I love this feature especially for those hard to reach places or places were you have no electricity available (ie: garage, car, etc.) The Shark Ionflex 2X Cord Free Ultra Light Vacuum Model IF252 has you covered for these hard to clean areas, with it’s battery operated motor, there is no need to search for an extension cord to an outlet.
