The Shark Rocket IX140, IX141 and Shark Rocket Pro IZ140 are battery powered stick and handheld 2-in-1 vacuum cleaners.
The difference between them are as follows:
The Shark Rocket Pro IZ140 features a self-cleaning brushroll with Dirt Engage floor nozzle whereas the IX140 and IX141 have a standard floor nozzle.
According to Shark, if any hair wrapped around the self cleaning brushroll, continue cleaning will allow the brushroll actively removes pet and human, long and short hair from the roller. The Dirt Engage technology delivers direct contact on hard floors, helps remove stuck-on dirt; and brushroll digs into carpets and picks up embedded debris. The standard nozzle does not have these features.
The IZ140 comes with a MultiFLEX Wand whereas the IX140 and IX141 have a standard wand.
The MultiFLEX Wand can be bended to get under low furniture, and makes the vacuum able to stand on its own for neat storage. The standard wand will not bend, you have to lean it against something to make it self standing for storage.
The IX141 has headlights on the nozzle to illuminate dark areas in front, while the IX140 and IZ140 do not have headlights.
The IX140 comes with a Dusting Brush
and an 8-inch Crevice Tool.
The IX141 comes with a Pet Multi-Tool

They use a 21.6V lithium-ion rechargeable and recyclable battery. The battery can only be charged in the vacuum, it is not designed to be detached for charging, you cannot use an additional swappable battery for quick changing if it runs out of battery.
The vacuum cleaners can work approximately 10 to 40 minutes depends on the which modes you choose.

When using with the floor nozzle, you can choose Bare Floor/Area Rug setting or Carpet setting. In Bare Floor/Area Rugs setting,
the brushroll spins slowly to clean bare floors and small area rugs.
In Carpet setting, the brushroll spins faster to clean carpets. The vacuum runs approximately 25 minutes in Bare Floor mode, 20 minutes in Carpet setting. You can also pull the Trigger
on the handheld vacuum for an added boost in power. However, this drain the battery fast.
