With the rise of rechargeable batteries, it’s easier than ever to dispense with power cords and the non-rechargeable variety. Whether it’s cleaning your home, keeping cool, or even just making sure your phone goes longer without needing a charge, let us help you get a head start with these suggestions.

Xooparc Solar Battery Power Bank

22-05-16 Solar Charger Amazon


Cell phone power banks can be used to extend your phone’s battery life without having to plug in the phone itself – but you do, inevitably, have to plug in the power bank itself for recharging. To avoid even that requirement, going solar is always an option, and that’s where this power bank from Xooparc comes in. It’s compatible with just about every phone and device, and though you can plug it in to charge, its solar cell can free you from being near an outlet for a good long while – especially ideal for camping.

What you need to know:

  • Compatible with all USB-charged devices, as well as most Apple and Samsung smartphones
  • 26800mAh capacity
  • Top seller for solar-charged power banks on, where it has a rating of 4.2 out of 5, based on more than 4,200 reviews

Afloia Mini Dehumidifier

Dehumidifier Cordless Amazon 22-06-14


Much of Canada experiences humid summers, which isn’t always ideal. A dehumidifier is a good idea for places where excess moisture should be avoided, and if you prefer the wireless variety (say, for smaller spaces like closets, wardrobes, cars and RVs), this is one to look at. It relies on silica beads to silently absorb moisture with no power required, though it does need to be periodically plugged into an included heating base for recharge.

What you need to know:

  • Circular design maximizes moisture absorption surface
  • Works effectively in spaces up to 54 square feet
  • Rated 4.5 out of 5 on, based on around 450 reviews

Laresar Cordless Vacuum Cleaner

Cordless Vacuum Amazon 22-06-14


I used to dread having to haul around a clunky vacuum and continually having to rearrange a power cord any time I needed to clean my house, but that dread pretty much disappeared when I switched to a cordless stick vacuum. They can be a little pricey, but this one is about mid-range, and offers up to 30 minutes of suction, with a four-hour charge time. It’s also lightweight and less noisy than the corded variety.

What you need to know:

  • Runs on detachable 2600mAh battery
  • Multiple attachments included, including separate brushes for carpet and hardwood
  • Rated 4.3 out of 5 on, based on more than 2,000 reviews

BISSELL AeroSlim Cordless Handheld Vacuum

Cordless hand vacuum 22-06-14


A full-fledged vacuum cleaner can be a bit of a blunt instrument in some cases, like cleaning car surfaces or furniture crevasses, so it’s a good idea to use a smaller hand-held in that case. We really liked this one – small and sleekly designed, with a 12-minute runtime, it’ll do the small jobs with aplomb.

What you need to know:

  • Includes 2-in-1 crevice tool and dusting brush
  • Bissell puts a portion of sales toward its pet rescue foundation
  • Rated 4.2 out of 5 on, based on more than 12,000 reviews

Yardworks 48V Grass Trimmer

22-04-11 grass trimmer CTC Canadian Tire


An all-electric mower can be a bit beyond the budget, so why not ease into cordless yard maintenance with a grass trimmer, like this one from Yardworks.
