One hand comfortably holds the vacuum's 20-volt motor housing, leaving the other to easily maneuver the onboard 4-foot hose (or head) toward your target. When not in use, the hose simply wraps around the unit for storage. The Flex's canister empties somewhat inelegantly to the side, but that's our only qualm: Smart design, good suction, and a low price make it a worthy occasional-use vacuum. [$130; blackanddecker.com]
