There’s nothing more satisfying in life than coming home to a clean home. Unfortunately, our busy schedules keep us from conducting even the simplest of chores, and when we do have time, we don’t have the energy to lug around big, heavy vacuums. If this describes you in a nutshell, then perhaps you should take a look at stick vacuums.

Stick vacuums are long, thin vacuum cleaners that hardly weigh a thing. You can suction-clean drapes with one of these babies in your arsenal of cleaning tools. But from the thousands of stick vacuums to choose from, finding the best one can be a bit of a challenge. Today, we’re going to compare three highly rated stick vacuum models – the A10 and A11 from Tineco and the Dyson V10.

Dyson has been the go-to company for high-quality stick vacuum cleaners, but Tineco’s line of stick vacs have garnered quite a bit of popularity recently. In this article, we’re going to determine whether either of these Tineco models can go head-to-head with the popular V10.


Suction Power

Tineco A10 Hero and Tineco A11 Master
Looking at the A10 Hero and A11 Mater from Tineco, it’s clear that there are way more overlapping specs than there are differences. They are both equipped with identical motors that deliver up to 7,000 Pa of suction power. This isn’t nearly as powerful as many other cordless stick vacuums, but it still gets the job done beautifully.

Dyson V10 Motorhead
One of the reasons Dyson has been named king of all stick vac manufacturers is their vacuums’ superior cleaning power. The V10 Motorhead, which isn’t even their most powerful stick vac, delivers up to 15,000 Pa.

Conclusion: Regarding their suctioning power, it’s obvious that the Dyson is more effective at cleaning more concentrated messes than either of the Tinecos. Even though the Dyson offers more than double the amount of cleaning power than the Tinecos, it’s only one of several considerations to make when shopping for stick vacs.

Cleaning Modes

All three of these stick vacs have identical cleaning modes. They have normal or low mode which delivers enough suction power for light- to medium-duty cleaning jobs. When dealing with caked-on messes and dry mud tracks, you’ll want to switch to high mode. On high mode, these stick vacs generate their maximum suction power output (7,000 Pa for the Tinecos and 15,000 Pa for the Dyson). Just note that high mode drains the battery much more quickly than on low mode.

Batteries

Tineco A10 Hero
If you purchase the Tineco, you get two 2,000-mAh batteries for twice as much cleaning time. Each battery offers around 50 minutes of cleaning power on low mode and 14 minutes on high mode. The batteries can be charged while in the stick vac or by placing it directly in the charging station.

Tineco A11 Master
The A11 Master comes with two 2,500-mAh batteries that provide up to 60 minutes each on low mode and 15 minutes on high mode. Like the A10 Master, the batteries can be charged while in the unit or connected directly into the charging dock.

Dyson V10 Motorhead
The Dyson uses a 2,600-mAh battery that provides a runtime of around 60 minutes on low and 15 minutes on high. The battery charges as the stick vac is hanging on the included wall mount.

Conclusion: It’s nice that Dyson’s battery can run for 60 minutes, but this stick vac kit only comes with a single battery. If you don’t mind investing in additional batteries, then both this and the A11 Master would be the best choice in terms of maximum runtime.

Noise Production

Tineco A10 Hero and Tineco A11 Master
Since these Tineco stick vac models come with the same exact motor, it only makes sense that they generate the same amount of noise while in use. Both of these Tineco vacs produce roughly 70 decibels of noise on low mode and around 85 decibels on high mode.

Dyson V10 Motorhead
Like the TInecos, the Dyson also produces two different noise levels based on which cleaning mode is active. On low suction power, the Dyson generates 75 decibels, and on high mode, it produces around 80 decibels.

Conclusion: Surprisingly, the Dyson with its superior cleaning power produces lower noise levels than either of the Tinecos. In the battle of which stick vac produces less noise, the Dyson wins, but this is simply a technicality that means nothing since you’ll hardly even notice a difference of 5 decibels.

Weight

Tineco A10 Hero
Stick vacs are known for being lightweight; this is what makes it more popular than upright and canister vacuums. The A10 Hero’s dry weight – the weight with an empty dustbin canister – weighs only 5.3 pounds.

The A11 Master weighs roughly the same as the A10 Hero. With an empty canister, this stick vac weighs only 5.03 pounds. That’s lightweight enough to vacuum curtains and walls without pulling a muscle.

Dyson V10 Motorhead
As for the Dyson, it has a dry weight of only 5.9 pounds. Not much heavier than the Tinecos, but it still has the highest risk of causing pulled muscles, fatigue, and back pain. Realistically speaking, it won’t.

Conclusion: Another technical win, but this time it goes to the Tineco A11 Master. Honestly, there’s really no difference in how much these tools weigh. We just had to bring this up since weight is one of the most important things to take into account when looking for a stick vac to take home.

Canister Capacity

Tineco A10 Hero and Tineco A11 Master
All three of these stick vacs come with removable canisters. The Tinecos’ dustbin canisters can hold up to 0.4 liters of dust and debris. Not the largest canisters available, but they’ll hold enough to last you for more than a single charge.

Tineco A11

Dyson V10 Motorhead
The Dyson comes with a larger 0.77-liter canister. That’s almost twice the amount of dust than either of the Tinecos, but it’s still not the largest canister available in a stick vac. Even so, it’ll hold plenty of dust, cereal, fallen hair, and whatever other things you leave on the floor.

Conclusion: Even though the difference in canister size between the three are minute, it could mean a whole lot, especially if a full canister can throw you off your vacuuming groove.

Verdict

After comparing the three models, we can conclude that the Tineco A10 Master and A11 Master are almost identical in every way. They’re pretty awesome stick vacs in our opinion, but even their lightweight build and two batteries do not replace the amazing suction power of the Dyson V10 Motorhead. Once again, Dyson reigns supreme, but if its price tag is a put-off, then the Tineco A11 Master would be a great substitute.
