Design and Features of Worx Portable Vacuum

The vacuum is quite compact and weighs around five pounds, including the battery; it is extremely portable.

1. Setup


It’s easy to set up.

  1. Place the battery in the vacuum.
  2. Connect the charger to charge the battery.
  3. Clean up your space

2. What Did It Take Up?

Lots of dirt! This is where our first complaint came up. Making the filter assemble was simple. If you examine the assembly of the filter, it is clear how packed it is. It took a lot of pushing and wriggling to separate the filter assembly so that we could wash it. We succeeded and swept off some dirt and grime from its HEPA filter.

We cleaned the two filters and allowed them to dry before using them again. This led us to our next issue. There is no way to empty the bin and filters without getting dirty. Hands were covered with dust after pounding away one of the filters.

However, the vacuum cleaned up was quite impressive, and the battery time was excellent.

3. Performance


Cleaning is something we do not love to do. When we say “put off,” we refer to that we do not. One of the main victims of our omissions is our large SUV. A few days ago (read: months), we had some folks in the back seat with a bunch of dirt/straw/sand/whatever on their shoes.

This was a wonderful accent to the carpeting that was dark. It was a great test for the powerful mini Worx vacuum.

We walked to the garage with an energized battery thinking we would have to go through a few charging cycles to complete the procedure. Wrong!

We began on the front, and then at a slow speed, we used the brush. Hence, we were amazed to see the mess disappear from the hose. We scrubbed the floor mat and then under and on the other side. So far, so good.


We changed seats to the back in the area of the disaster. Like in front, everything was taken up with no effort, all while at a low speed. We made both front floor mats. So, we Also did as well under the floor mats and in the middle third row as there was a fold in the middle of the row.

We then moved to the back to clean the area of cargo. We increased the speed of the vacuum to high speed because the texture of the seatbacks worked better at securing debris. Hence, we vacuumed all of the floor (made from the rear of the third-row seats folded) and were able to get plenty of power. We were cleaning for around 15 minutes, most of the time on low and a few minutes on high. Their claim of 10 to 20 minutes of runtime is completely plausible.

4. Design


The vacuum is very solid. It’s almost as if you can throw it at the wall, and the wall would emerge as the loser. We would not recommend this, but it’s the most accurate way to describe the sensation in your hand.

The top of the handle is integrated. This handle houses the hose attached. The wand’s curvature tucks into the opposite end of the vacuum. The power button can be found located on the handle and controls the power off/low/high cycle.

From the upper part of the cabinet, you can see the hose attached to the handle and an onboard storage compartment for the crevice accessory for the tool (left) and the brush accessory (right). The button between the two compartments of storage is the release of the debris container. You can open the container that weighs six ounces in the vacuum by pressing that button.

The filters are in the container for debris.

By twisting the assembly of the filter to its left, it lets it release it and exposes the outports of the vacuum.

The filter assembly can be removed as a whole unit.

The outer shell is rotated to release the filtering screen by removing the inside HEPA filter.

Both filters are cleanable by using clean water. The HEPA filter needs to be replaced if it has become unaffordable to be effectively cleaned.

After placing the filters back into place and closing the container, the lid prepares the vacuum to be used for the next cleaning venture.

5. You Also Get:


There are good rubber feet on all four corners to keep the vacuum when placed on smooth surfaces. In the image above, you will also observe the suction side of the hose in its storage position.

The hose is quite long when it is stored. When you pull the hose away, two events take place. First, the hose expands.

The second pipe is released at the end of the wand. If extended fully, you’ll have approximately a length of four feet. It’s quite impressive for a device.

Another great feature is the storage on board. This means that the brush and crevice tools are always on hand. The crevice tool also offers a bonus. It’s extendable to get into very small places.

If you own a few favorite vacuum tools from an earlier machine, Worx thoughtfully includes a 32mm to 35mm adapter, so you can use them on this model. We would prefer to store it on the unit since we are likely to be able to replace it.

Worx has done an excellent job packing lots of features into a compact package. It’s all great, but when it doesn’t work and then, it does not suck. (See the above mention of needing a thesaurus)

Final Thoughts


This small vacuum is an excellent product to keep in your bag. It is much more efficient than other portable vacuums we have used, and even though the battery’s lifespan isn’t the best, it’s powerful enough to complete smaller tasks.

We are amazed that the battery can be swapped to other Worx products and has an in-built battery charger. In terms of cost, this vacuum is priced a bit higher than other battery-powered portable vacuums, but its style and simple operation make it well worth the cost.

The little vacuum will not be sucking, as it can suck. The tiny thing Worx is working on. This is becoming difficult. Let’s see:

Does it vacuum well? Yes, it does.

Are they easily transportable? Yes, it is.

Does the battery last for long enough to get the task completed? Sure!

Do your hands get dirty when cleaning out the filters after vacuuming? Yes, it happens.

Do we intend to continue using it, and would we recommend it? Yes

The Worx WX030L is a versatile, portable, and cordless vacuum with useful devices that will always be ready. It’s a wonderful package that should be considered for your workshop, garage, camper, or wherever the need for a bit of cordless vacuuming is required.
