It looks a feels more like an upright vacuum cleaner, but without the weight. I guess that was their aim. To make it feel more robust and sturdy, yet easy to move around.
Paper bags…The dust collection bags are made out of paper which will degrade so you don’t have to worry about polluting the planet with more plastic. Great idea.
The Halo Capsule Stick Vacuum is suitable for small areas because of its size and lightweight body. This powerful stick vacuum can be converted into a handheld model to quickly and efficiently hoover up small spills.
It offers a decent running time of 60 minutes and it can hold a large amount of dirt thanks to its 1.6L capacity. It is designed to clean hard floors and carpeted areas without consuming much energy.
Let’s start by looking at the key features at a glance:
- Ultra-lightweight (2.6kgs)
- Powerful motor (4,000rpm)
- Handheld conversion
- Large capacity (1.6L dust tank)
- Easy to re-charge (3 hours = 60mins use)

This stick vacuum is made of durable lightweight carbon fibre to increase its life span. It weighs a meagre 2.6kgs to make it easily manoeuvrable.
You can work with it for long periods without straining your muscles and detach the handle to make it even lighter for handheld activities.
To suck up all the dirt, the vacuum is fitted with a robust motor to support speeds of up to 4000rpm.
It has three-speed settings that you can interchange easily depending on the surface you are cleaning.
The motor is powered by a 36V battery that takes three hours to charge to full. Once the battery is fully charged, you can get up to 60 mins of running time.
For a stick vacuum, the Halo Capsule offers a large capacity. Its 1.6-litre collection capacity permits you to work for a while before needing to empty. This not only saves you time but it saves you the frustration of having to interrupt work often. The manufacturer provides 52 dust bags free to use at your convenience.
The bags are made out of compostable paper meaning that they will degrade quickly when in landfill, so that’s one less thing to worry about.
Easy to use
Apart from the stick vacuum being lightweight, it comes with different cleaning heads that include a power brush, crevice tool and a dusting brush. You can attend to different surfaces like the skirting boards to the staircase with ease.
Once the dirt is collected, you can dispose of the dirt bags without reintroducing dust particles in the air. The stick vacuum can be disassembled for easy storage for those with limited space.

What are People Saying…?
Providing powerful suction and an easy to use interface, the Halo Capsule stick vacuum has amassed some positive reviews. With a rating of 4/5, we can see why the customers are pleased.
One happy customer said:
“Overall I am pleased with the Halo. It’s lifting cat hair from the carpets very well. I love it on the carpeted stairs too where it’s saved loads of time. My one niggle would be that it’s not very good on hard floors. As I tend to use it for short bursts, I usually don’t bother to fit the long tube, then I can use it straight out of my cupboard which is even quicker.”
What’s the Downside…?
The only gripe you might have with the Halo Capsule vacuum is the handle design that is not well balanced. The handle could be more ergonomic to balance the top-heavy machine. To solve this you can just use the handheld mode where you can instead of dragging the whole machine everywhere.
- Features a robust motor to power 3 working speeds
- It has a lightweight body for manoeuvrability
- Offers a running time of 60 minutes
- It can be converted to a handheld machine for convenience
- Comes with 52 free dust bags
- Provides a large 1.6-litre collection capacity
- Accompanied by different cleaning heads
- It is top-heavy thus a bit unbalanced
- Swapping the cleaning heads will be stiff at first
