Here are some key difference between Dyson DC44 and Electrolux Ergorapido EL1014A you’d like to know before buying.
Both Electrolux Ergorapido EL1014A and Dyson DC44 Animal can work as a handheld and stick vacuum, but their design is totally different.
The Electrolux Ergorapido has a removable hand unit that can pop out which turns it from a stick vacuum to a hand vacuum. While the DC44 has a wand that can be removed so that it can be used as a handheld vacuum.
The cleaner head on the Electrolux Ergorapido is not detachable while you can remove the motorized nozzle on the DC44.
Electrolux Ergorapido is equipped with rechargeable 9.6V NiMH battery while the DC44 has a 22.2V nickel cobalt manganese battery.
The nickel cobalt manganese battery charges much faster than the NiMH battery.
The DC44 comes with a mini motorized tool which is designed for pet hair and dirt pick up, a combination brush/wide debris nozzle tool and a crevice tool while the Electrolux Ergorapido EL1014A comes with a crevice tool and dusting brush.
Cost is another important factor you will consider when comparing these 2 vacuum cleaners. The DC44 is much more expensive than the Electrolux Ergorapido.
