A couple of readers have been asking – what’s the deal with Hoover ONEPWR cordless vacuums?
I’ve known about Hoover’s ONEPWR cordless lineup, but not for a long time, and it came as a surprise to me too. But, there’s another curious aspect.
Look at the Hoover ONEPWR cordless wet/dry vacuum above. Does it look familiar?
New Ryobi 18V Cordless Wet/Dry Vacuum
Wait a second – that Hoover cordless vac looks just like the Ryobi!
Here’s the thing – Hoover is owned by TTI, the same company that designs and manufactures Ryobi cordless power tools for Home Depot.

TTI also owns Oreck, Vax, Homelite, and Dirt Devil.
Is it surprising that TTI would leverage the cordless vacuum technologies developed for the Ryobi brand to give Hoover broader cordless cleaning options?
Hoover has several seemingly unique cordless vacuums as well, and most bear strong resemblance to Ryobi offerings. Having only known about the Hoover products for a couple of months, I am assuming that the Ryobi cordless vacs came first.
The Hoover ONEPWR lineup includes workshop and jobsite-style cordless wet/dry vacuums, and also cordless blowers, upright stick vacs, and a couple of unique-looking home cleaning solutions such as a cordless carpet spot cleaner.
It seems that ONEPWR is an 18V/20V Max cordless battery system. It’ll be interesting to see if the product line develops further, but even if it doesn’t, Hoover looks to have a good selection of homeowner vacuums and other cordless cleaning products.
Whether the Hoover products are any good is a different question, but they tend to have a good track record, and the same is true for Ryobi’s cordless vacs and blowers.

Please let me know if you have any questions! The Hoover ONEPWR system simply looks to be a mashup between Ryobi and Hoover cleaning products, but I can try to dig deeper if anyone is interested.
