LG's new stick vacuum automatically empties dirt while it charges

But you'll still need to take a bag to the trash.


Robot vacuums can automatically empty themselves, but what if you prefer to clean your home yourself? LG might have you covered. It just introduced the CordZero ThinQ A9 Kompressor+ vacuum cleaner (yes, that’s a mouthful) with a charging station that automatically empties the dustbin into an attached bag. You’ll still have to take a bag to the trash, but you don’t have to deal with the messiest part — important if you’re allergic or otherwise concerned about hygiene.

The vacuum has a mop attachment (now available as a stand-alone purchase for previous A9 models), washable filters and two “quick-change” batteries in case you can’t afford to wait for the charging station.

LG hasn’t outlined prices and availability for its latest CordZero vac, although we wouldn’t expect it to be cheap when the existing A9 Kompressor sells for $799. However, you might justify the likely premium if you’re more worried about emptying your vacuum than cleaning your floors.
