LG CordZero A9 Ultimate Handstick Vacuum review

Last updated:  

Quick verdict: The LG CordZero A9 Ultimate is a highly versatile stick vacuum that can tackle most surfaces. It is, however, slightly underpowered for the asking price.

  • Lots of included accessories
  • Two removable batteries
  • Telescopic pipe
  • No OLED display
  • Expensive
  • Fiddly dust bin mechanism

Finder score: 4

The A9 Ultimate is the top-of-the-range model in LG's CordZero stick vacuum range. In addition to the usual array of vacuum heads, it comes with a rotating mop that automatically dispenses water during operation.

With an RRP of $1,349, LG is positioning the A9 Ultimate as a direct competitor to the Dyson V11. However, I'm not entirely convinced that it's worth such a hefty price tag, given the inherent limitations of stick models (this is a criticism that applies equally to Dyson).

But if you're willing to pony up the cash, the A9 Ultimate is an excellent vacuum that ticks all the important cleaning boxes, including battery life, ease of use and versatility.



  • Easy to use and assemble
  • Minimalist user interface
  • Seven heads and nozzles included

Should you buy the LG CordZero A9 Ultimate Handstick Vacuum?

  • Buy it if you want a versatile stick vacuum and mop for multiple surface types
  • Don't buy it if you need something cheap and simple

How we score our reviews

The LG CordZero A9 Ultimate Handstick Vacuum is a good all-rounder that is capable of cleaning and mopping most household surfaces. The inclusion of removable batteries is also highly appreciated. However, at over a grand in price, it's prohibitively expensive even when compared to a Dyson and not as powerful as a traditional high-end vacuum.

If money is no object and you like the idea of a motorised mop, the LG CordZero A9 Ultimate is an excellent choice. For everyone else, try one of LG's cheaper CordZero models instead.
