Rowenta Delta Force vs Electrolux Ergorapido Ion EL1030A which is better for your needs?

We will compare the specs side by side, list the similarities and difference between Rowenta Delta Force and Electrolux Ergorapido Ion EL1030A to help you buy the right one.

About Brush On/Off:
The Rowenta Delta Force does not have brush On/Off switch, brush stays on when vacuum is on.
I thought the Electrolux Ergorapido Ion does not have suction only mode like many other people, because there is no brush off position on the handle. But recently, when I read some Electrolux Ergorapido Ion EL1030A reviews online, I found that it is possible to use the Ergorapido Ion with the brush off.
Generally speaking, if a vacuum features brush on/off, it is controlled by one switch. On Electrolux Ergorapido, there are 2 power switches because of its 2 in 1 design, one is on the stick handle, and one is on the hand vacuum. According to users reviews, you can turn on the vacuum with the power button on the hand unit while still using it as a stick vac, and the brush roller will not rotate. Thus it has suction only mode.
I don’t know if this will cause any problem, the manual does not even mention this. So please contact Electrolux customer service to make sure if this is secure before applying.

The Rowenta Delta Force is only a stick vacuum while the Ergorapido Ion is a hand/stick 2 in 1 vacuum, its handheld part can pop off from the stick body.

LED Headlights:
The Electrolux Ergorapido Ion EL1030A features LED headlights to illuminates the cleaning path while the Rowenta Delta Force has no headlights.

Charging Time:
The Rowenta Delta Force takes about 16 hours to fully charge while the Electrolux Ergorapido Ion EL1030A takes about 4 hours.

Run Time:
The run time on Rowenta Delta Force is longer than many other cordless vacuum cleaners, it has a max 40 minute runtime while the EL1030A runs about 10 – 20 minutes.

Battery Life Indicator:
