Shark Rocket Ultra Light Upright Vacuum Review
With this lightweight but powerful vacuum cleaner you'll definitely enjoy vacuuming again! It's basically a 2-in-1 vacuum cleaner.
You can use it as an upright for your floors and carpet and then un-clip the top and use it as a handheld vacuum to clean your furniture. It has various attachments and can reach into places most other vacuums can't.
It comes with a super long 32 foot power cord which can almost do your whole house from just the one power socket. And because it is corded and not battery run it has so much more suction power than a cordless vacuum.

* Ideal for homes with stairs, as cleaning the stairs becomes a breeze with this unit.
* People with smaller apartments with not a lot of storage space.

Design and Features
The Shark rocket is super lightweight, weighing just under 8 pounds. It converts to a hand vac with just the click of a button.There are 2 speed settings. Setting 1 is for hard floors and area rugs and setting 2 is for low pile carpets. Basically the settings control the beater brush speed on the floor nozzle and setting 1 is a slower speed.
The Shark Rocket also comes with a Dust-Away hard floor attachment with a washable microfiber pad which is the best for hard floors and also great for wood floors as it won't scratch the floor.Other attachments include a crevice tool, a small brush tool and a special pet hair attachment which is especially useful for removing pet hair from furniture.
The dust cup is easy to empty but is small so it needs to be emptied quite regularly. One slight disadvantage for some is that it can't be removed entirely from the unit so you need to take it to the garbage bin with the cord still attached.There are 3 filters in the Shark Rocket which are washable and should be cleaned on a regular basis.
The Shark Rocket is so powerful that it almost propels itself along! Because of its clever design it has swivel steering which gives you much easier maneuverability especially for getting into hard to reach areas and under furniture like beds and couches.
Not only can you clean every part of your home with this vacuum but it's also fantastic for cleaning the car. The micro cleaning attachment can even be used to clean your keyboard or the vents in the car.
When not in use, the hand vacuum can either be clipped onto the bottom of the wand for upright storage or hung conveniently on the included wall mount.
