Best Miele Cordless Vacuums
The Miele Triflex HX1 series is the brand’s first cordless vacuum cleaner line. Models under it are basically stick vacuums that can be converted into upright and a compact (handheld) unit.
All the models in this series are powered by the Vortex motor. This gives the cordless unit the suction power that can rival that of a full-size canister vacuum cleaner.
The Triflex HX1 comes with a multi-surface brush and an assortment of attachments that you can use to clean your floors and other surfaces in your home. It comes with a removable Varta battery that gives it 60 minutes of run time. This is enough to cover an area of roughly 1,345 square feet.
Each comes with a set of filters that offer up to 99.98% filtration. Below are the best Triflex HX1 options for general cleaning and for homes with pets.
Best Miele Cordless Vacuum for General Cleaning: Triflex HX1
If you have multiple types of flooring at home and love the convenience of just getting the vacuum cleaner off a wall and starting to clean, then the Miele Triflex HX1 may be the perfect choice for you. It is the most affordable of the Triflex models but offers the same level of suction and filtration as the others.
The graphite grey Triflex HX1 has three main components that you can arrange in three different ways. Each configuration offers a different type of cleaning. The cordless stick configuration enables the user to reach under bulky furniture like tables and chairs. The upright vacuum cleaner arrangement makes the unit stand on its own, relieving the stress from your wrist as you clean.

You can also use the PowerUnit on its own as a handheld vacuum cleaner for cleaning the drapes, overhead fixtures, and other non-floor surfaces. Learning to reconfigure the parts takes some getting used to but is easy.
The Triflex HX1 uses the same Triforce motor as the other models in this line. It is a powerful motor, strong enough to pick up coarse particles easily in one or two passes. It offers three suction levels that you can set with the sliding switch. The lowest is still strong even if it is designed for cleaning delicate surfaces. The Miele Triflex is designed for energy efficiency. It operates silently too.
The unit collects all the coarse particles in one clear, 0.5-liter container. This dust bin is equipped with several filters that require almost zero maintenance. The Hygiene Lifetime filter, together with the Fine Dust and Motor protection filters, is very efficient in trapping particles and seals in 99.98% of all harmful dust, dirt, and other fine particles that can cause allergies.
This cordless vacuum cleaner has a maximum of 60-minute run time on one charging. It should be enough to cover about 125 sq. meter of area. Because of the small size, the dust bin may need frequent emptying. This is one shortcoming of this line. The SEB 430 Electric floorhead that comes with this unit makes it possible to clean both hard floors and low pile carpeting. It provides the right amount of agitation and suction to clean even those areas that see high traffic.
- Has three configurations to address more cleaning needs.
- Longer run time when set on low suction.
- Is compact in size and can access tight spaces.
- Decent suction and filtration capabilities for a cordless vacuum cleaner.
- Takes a long time to charge.
- Not effective in cleaning high pile carpets.
- High clearance makes it hard to reach under furniture.

The Triflex HX1 Cat and Dog is powered by a Triforce motor. This gives the cleaning tool suction power that rivals that of other corded vacuum cleaners. Its unique design creates a cyclone of particles and air inside its dust container.
This spinning movement separates the fine dust particles from the coarse debris, allowing the bigger particles to fall into the dust bin and forcing the fine dust to be trapped in the various filters of the vacuum. The component that makes this model pet-friendly is the floorhead that come with the vacuum cleaner.
