Apex Uplight Review Research:

  • Simple to put together.
  • Strong suction for its size.
  • Cord is long.
  • The self-cleaning brushroll works well.
  • Has LED headlights.
  • Versatile. It has detachable wand and pod, allows you to tackle different cleaning jobs,including floor and above floor cleaning.
  • Low profile and can lay flat to get under furniture (requires approximately 4.5 inches of clearance). 
  • The nozzle swivels well.
  • Easy to empty bin.
  • With the help of the retractable wheels, it can stand on its own.


  • Small dust bin.
  • The power button is on the rear of the handle, not on the front. Thus it is difficult to turn it on/off with one hand.
  • Not for people with weak wrist. The lift away pod contains the motor and bin, is near the handle. When you hold the vacuum, you are holding most of the weight of the unit, so it will feel heavier than you thought. It will take you some time to get used to it.
  • Cannot turn off brush rollers.
  • Cannot adjust suction power.


  • The suction and self cleaning brushroll are pretty good, but the weight distribution might be a an issue for some people, and the lack of suction adjustment makes it not work well on shag carpets and small rugs.
