  • Design:
    This is one of the major difference between them.
    The Onepwr Blade and Impulse are handheld and stick 2-in-1 vacuum cleaners, they come with floor nozzle, wand and accessories, you can use them to do quick pick up on floors or above floor cleaning.
    While the Onepwr Evolve and Linx are slim and lightweight upright, they do not come with any tools for above floor cleaning, they can be used to do floor cleaning only. (The Onepwr Evolve is a newer model than the Linx, it is from the creators of Linx, but upgraded, such as having larger dust cup, longer run time, more control options.)
    So, if you want a more versatile vacuum, you may want to consider the Onepwr Blade and Impulse.
  • Battery
    The Onepwr Blade, Onepwr Evolve, Linx use a removable battery design that allows you to have one in use and buy a second one to sit in charger to stand by, so you can extend the working time. While the Impulse has a built-in battery which cannot be removed and swapped out.
    I personally do not like the internal battery design. When the battery dies, the whole vacuum is useless. And you cannot get extra running time by ordering an extra battery.
  • Brush On/Off
    The Linx, Blade Series and Evolve have Brush On/Off control which allows you to turn off the rotating brushroll when cleaning delicate floors, whereas the Impulse brushroll always spins when on, but it spins at lower speed when select hard floor setting.
  • Brushroll
    The Onepwr Evolve equipped with an antimicrobial brush roll that help prevent the growth of odor causing bacteria whereas the Onepwr Blade series, Linx and Impulse do not feature.
  • Accessories
    The Onepwr Blade and Impulse come with tools such as wand, crevice tool and dusting brush to help clean hard to reach spots and above floor areas.
    Whereas the Onepwr Evolve and Linx do not have any tools.
    So if you need one to clean areas like ceiling fan and countertop, then you may want to consider the Onepwr Blade and Impulse.
  • Dust Cup Capacity
    The Onepwr Evolve has the largest dust cup capacity which holds up to 1 liter, over 3 times the one on the Onepwr Blade.
  • Headlights
    Only the Hoover ONEPWR Blade Series equipped with LED headlights which help you see the hidden dirt and clean low light spots.
  • Fingertip Control

    The Onepwr Blade, Linx and Impulse feature the fingertip control while the ONEPWR Evolve does Not.
  • Wall Mount
    The Onepwr Blade and Impulse come with a wall mount for neat storage.
    Whereas the Onepwr Evolve and Linx are designed to stand upright, they do not come with a wall mount and cannot be wall mounted.
  • Charging
    The Linx, Blade Series and Evolve require you to remove the bettery to charge it in charger base, whereas the Impulse has a internal battery, so it needs to be charged in unit / wall mount.
