CordZero Handstick's Smart Inverter Motor is capable of spinning 16 times faster than an airplane engine. Yes, you heard that right. Smart Inverter Motor can clock up to 115,000 RPM (Rotations Per Minute), whereas Rolls-Royce RB211 engine on the Boeing 747 rotates at 7,000 RPM speed.

On the other hand, CordZero Canister model too uses the same Smart Invertor Motor to boost airflow feature dubbed as the 'Axial Turbo Cyclone' and delivers strong suction with its PowerPack 72V lithium-ion battery. It also houses LG's advanced RoboSense 2.0 technology to make vacuum automatically follow the user, so no tugging or pulling is ever required.

The CordZero Canister's collision detection system intelligently identifies obstacles and avoids them with its front-mounted sensor.
