The introduction of a new cordless stick vacuum has become almost a daily occurrence. These engineering marvels have captured the imagination of those seeking a better and faster way to clean their house.

Until recently, aTineco PURE ONE S12 with state of the art features battery powered vacuum was more of a novelty than a serious household appliance. They were only good for supplemental cleaning but that’s about all.  An old fashioned corded upright vacuum was the only option for tackling the really serious dirt in our homes.

The latest battery and D/C Motor technology has now made it possible for a battery powered vacuum to run long enough and strong enough to rival a traditional corded vacuum.

The S12 is Tineco’s latest model in a sequence of highly successful Cordless Stick Vacuum offerings.

NOTE: Because of the many advanced features of this vacuum this review is necessarily long and detailed.

Four Configurations to Choose From

The Tineco PURE ONE S12 is offered in (4) different configurations or package options:  The Pure One S12 M Lite, S12 M, S12, and S12 PLUS.

Each model option includes different accessories and features and are priced accordingly.

This review focuses on the S12 as a base platform that can be ordered in one of four configurations, depending on your individual needs and your budget.

A complete comparison and recommendation of each option is provided below.

What to Expect

Tineco PURE ONE S12 comes with many accessories and attachments
Tineco Pure One S12 PLUS Package

When your new Tineco PURE ONE S12 cordless arrives you will find that it is well-packaged for maximum protection from rough handling.  Each accessory and component is segregated in it’s own compartment.


It looks like a lot of complicated parts but setting up your new PURE ONE S12 is extremely easy.

I recommend that you grab the User Manual first and look over the list of accessories and components that are supposed to be included.

Then, lay them out on the floor or table to familiarize yourself with them and to make sure that nothing is missing.

The only difficulty you might encounter is assembling the Wall Mount/Charger unit.  It comes in two pieces that snap together, but the User Manual shows you exactly how they go together.


The Tineco PURE ONE S12 is a sophisticated and complex machine.  I highly recommend that before you attempt to operate it that you spend some time with the User Manual to get acquainted with its many features.  This will assure that you have the most positive experience possible.

Suction Power

Tineco PURE ONE S12 generates 150 air watts of raw suction powerTineco has progressively upgraded the suction power of its cordless vacuum line.  Their first and very successful A10 Hero model develops 110W of suction power which is enough to deep clean low to medium pile carpet.

The new PURE ONE S12 produces 150W at Maximum Power that is sufficient to clean even Plush and Deep Pile CarpetNOTE: All four S12 Packages have the same motor and same suction rating.

That’s less than Dyson’s V11 that generates 185W but the actual cleaning performance is negligible. (SEE:  Tineco S12 vs Dyson V11 )

Keep in mind, there is more to cleaning performance that just strong suction.


Why Not a Smart Vacuum?

Evolution of Smart TechnologyCordless stick vacuums have become a highly desirable product the last few years and every floor care appliance manufacturer wants their share of the bonanza gold.  To capture the  attention of the public manufactures are constantly looking for new gimmicks to distinguish their product from the fierce competition.

This has led to a rapid evolution of the cordless stick vacuum since its introduction several years ago.

SMART technology has fundamentally changed the way we live.  It has been used very successfully in machines and appliances such as the automobile, airplanes, telephones, etc. to improve their performance and efficiency.

So, why not apply SMART technology to a battery-powered vacuum?

Two Major Sticking Points

Until now, two major sticking points have prevented some consumers from investing in a cordless vacuum:

(1) Not enough suction for serious deep-down cleaning.

(2) They don’t run long enough to finish the job.

The latest battery technology has solved the first problem and some of the latest cord-free vacuums now have comparable suction power to a corded vacuum.

However, sufficient runtime has continued to be an elusive achievement.  An on-board battery that is light enough to easily manage with one hand has a finite supply of energy. And that power gets used up quickly operating a D/C vacuum motor at full speed. So, this conundrum limits the amount of time an operator has to complete a cleaning task.

Only Use it When you Need it!

The truth is, that most dirt and debris encountered in the home doesn’t require that much suction to lift into a vacuum once it is set in motion.  As Mr. Spock might explain, “it takes more energy to overcome inertia than to affect a moving object.” Fine dust and dirt can be easily sucked up with minimal suction by first agitating it with a motor-powered brush. It’s only the deep-down dirt, large quantities of dirt, and large debris that require more powerful suction.

So, it makes sense to only use the maximum suction power when you need it.  And that is what Tineco’s SMART Suction Technology is all about!

How Tineco’s Smart Suction Control Technology Works

This revolutionary technology utilizes a processor and sensors to monitor the amount of dust and dirt beingTineco PURE ONE S12 Cordless Vacuum with smart suction iLoop dust sensor devoured in both Upright and Handheld mode.  The benefits of this technology are twofold:

  1. Automatically detects concentrations of dirt and dust and adjusts suction for maximum deep cleaning performance.  As you vacuum you will hear the motor speed up as you pass over an area with lots of dirt.  When you progress to an area with less dirt it will slow down.  The outer illuminated ring of the LED Display (S12 and S12 PLUS Only) will change from blue to red indicating more or less dirt being sucked into the machine.
  2. Minimizes unnecessary battery drain by using maximum suction only when needed.

NOTE:  The suction can also be controlled manually by using the touch control located on the handle.

LED Digital Display Screen

Tineco PURE ONE S12 Cordless Vacuum with virtual interactive feature displayThe S12 and S12 PLUS are equipped with a stunning LED Digital Display that provides you with important information.

  • Remaining Runtime function: As you vacuum you will see how many minutes of operating time remain, displayed in count-down format.
  • Maintenance Alerts: An alert lets you know when the filter needs cleaning or if there’s a clog. This is a common complaint when cleaning pet hair using any vacuum.
  • Dust Amount: This function enables you to see how much dirt/dust the S12 is devouring.
  • Power Mode: See which power mode is being used, Manual or Auto.

I found the display fascinating and helpful to look at.  The only problem I had is that its angled forward making it a little difficult to see while operating the vacuum.  Its not a big deal but I would like to see Tineco perhaps incline the screen toward the operator in their next upgrade.


Basic Operation of the Tineco PURE ONE S12

I found the Tineco PURE ONE S12 to be very easy and pleasant to operate. The 6.6 lbs. weight is mostly in the motorTineco PURE ONE S12 with TRIGGER LOCK and battery so even the most petite person should find it easy to handle.

To Turn On the machine you simply pull the trigger. It must be held in to continue running (similar to the Dyson V series).  It requires very little effort to depress.  However, if you get finger fatigue the S12 has a Trigger Lock located on the left side that you can engage for finger-off operation.

When the machine is turned on it is in the default AUTO mode and the SMART Suction and iLoop Sensor are activated.  While the machine is static the suction remains at the minimum power.  As you move the vacuum across the floor the suction power increases when the iLoop Sensor detects dirt.  You will hear the the motor speed increase.  The more dirt it detects the higher the suction until the dirt is ingested and then the power is automatically adjusted down to the minimum level.

Noise Reduction

One of the objections most people have when it comes to operating a vacuum is the high-pitched loud and annoying sound.  Cordless vacuums depend on high rpm D/C motors to develop adequate suction power so they can be just as Tineco PURE ONE S12 with smart noise optimizationannoying and loud as a traditional corded vacuum.

The very first thing I noticed when I pressed the trigger switch of the S12 was how quiet it is.  I could hardly detect if it was running.

Tineco has incorporated what they call Smart Noise Optimization into the S12 for Ultra-quiet operation.  It harmonically reduces the noise of the PURE ONE S12 to as low as 71dB(A).

I was able to easily hear the TV and the alerts on my phone while vacuuming.  None of my pets complained like they usually do when I vacuum.  Even at MAX Power the S12 I found the noise to be very tolerable.

Swivel Steering

The Swivel Steering mechanism works well on the S12 and is easy to maneuver and keep in a straight line. It does rotate a full 90 degrees for maneuvering around any obstacle.

I found the S12 easy to push on hard floors and low pile carpet.  Medium pile carpet required a bit more effort although not as much as a full-size corded upright vacuum.  Plush Long Pile carpet requires more effort as you would expect but shouldn’t pose a problem unless the operator is physically challenged.

2-in-1 Design

Like most cordless stick vacuums, the Tineco PURE ONE S12 is designed to easily convert to a handheld vacuum.  Every accessory that attaches to the wand also attaches directly to the main body including the motorized floor brushes.

Accessories and Attachments

Any of the Tineco Pure One S12 Model Options come with enough accessories and attachments to clean any area of the house. I found that each of the attachments are well-made and well-designed to do the job intended. Each one snapsTineco pure one s12 Attachments are High Quality and Very Useful decisively in place with one hand and detaches just as easily.

I especially like the Multi-Angle Folding Adapter (S12 and S12 PLUS Only).  This accessory adds to the versatility of the machine, especially for overhead cleaning.  It not only articulates a full 90 degrees, it also serves as an extension.

When used with the Dusting Brush attachment it makes cleaning Ceiling Fan Blades or high book shelves a snap.  The average person should easily be able to reach up to 11 feet with no problem.

To eliminate any confusion please refer to the Side-by-Side Comparison Table near the end of this review to see what’s included with each S12 Package.

Build Quality of the Tineco PURE ONE S12

Overall I found the build quality of the S12 Cordless to be good compared to other models and brands I have reviewed.

Tineco pure one s12 has high quality motorized floor brushesThe floor brush cleaning heads are excellent quality with good rubber-like tires for easy operation and maximum protection of wood floors.  I did find it a bit difficult to remove the brush roll for cleaning.  The good news is it shouldn’t require cleaning often because of its design.

As I mentioned, the attachments are well-designed and snap on and off easily with one hand.  They are very functional and should last for years.

Improvements Needed

The main body is somewhat complex because with all the features but I did find the build quality better than average.  I may be nit picking but the hinge assembly to the Dust Cup trap door is not as beefy as I would have preferred.  Under normal usage I don’t believe it will present a problem.

The Dust Cup trap door latch is not what I would have expected from a product in this price range.  It does function as intended but again, I would like to see it upgraded to be stronger.

Compared to other top brands such as the SharkNinja series and the Dyson V series I consider the Tineco S12 to be approximately the same build quality.

Expected Longevity

Since it is impossible for me to test the machine and components for longevity I can’t predict how long you can expect the S12 to last.  Tineco warranties it for 2 years which is about the industry average.  Keeping in mind that Tineco is a division of Ecovacs Co. that has been making quality robotic vacuums for years I would expect about the same longevity and customer satisfaction as their products have.


Voltage and Runtime 

The Tineco PURE ONE S12 Series utilize a Removable Battery Pack for its power source.  Each S12 Model Option includes Tineco PURE ONE S12 with removable battery pack(2) Battery packs each.

  • The Pure One S12 LITE and S12 M come with two 2000mAh battery packs that provide Up to 80 minutes of runtime each.
  • The Pure One S12 and Pure One S12 PLUS come with two 2500mAh battery packs that provide up to Up to 100 minutes of runtime each.

Charging and Storage

Each Pure One S12 Series package comes with a well-designed Wall-Mount Docking/Recharging Station.  It allows you to charge BOTH battery packs at the same time.Tineco s12 wall mount docking charging station and accessory holder

There is a separate dock for the removed battery pack so it can be recharging while you operate the vacuum.  When the vacuum is returned to the Station the installed battery pack begins recharging.

Each battery pack has a small LED that emits Blue while charging.  It is safe to leave either or both batteries in the charging station even after they are fully charged.

I found it took approximately 3 to 3 1/2 hours to fully recharge the batteries.

The Wall-Mount Docking/Recharging Station accommodates two attachments as well as the vacuum and second battery pack.  I found it to be attractive and takes up minimal space.  It comes with the necessary mounting hardware.  In case you don’t want to mount on your wall you can simply lay it on the floor adjacent to a receptacle for recharging.


Cleaning Performance of the Tineco PURE ONE S12

I tested the Tineco PURE ONE S12 on Hardwood flooring and on short, med. and Plush Pile Carpeting.  To evaluate the cleaning performance I used coffee grinds, oatmeal, Talc, and Pelletized pet food.   I weighed each sample before applying to floor and weighed again after vacuuming to determine cleaning percentage.

In addition to the controlled testing I used the Tineco PURE ONE S12 extensively throughout my home and automobile to get a real-world feel of its cleaning performance.

Hard Floors

I found the Tineco Pure One S12 cleaned my hardwood floors 100% of the Coffee Grinds, Oatmeal, Talc Powder, and Pelletized Pet Food.

Using the Full-Size LED Multi-Tasker Power Floor Brush (Pure One S12 LITE and S12 M) and the Direct-Drive LED Multi-Tasker Power Floor Brush (Pure One S12 and S12 PLUS) on hardwood floors works well on dirt and dust.  However, when it comes to large debris such as dry pet food or cereal I experienced the “snow plowing” effect.  Most of the pelletized pet food I used to test was pushed along the floor and required multiple passes to suck it all up.

**However, when using the LED Soft-Roller Power Brush (S12 Plus ONLY) there was no slinging issue.  It would just steam roll over everything in its path and gobble it up.

Watch Video of the Pure One S12 Plus on Hardwood Floor

To summarize, the Tineco Pure One S12 cleans hard and wood floors as well as any cordless or corded vacuum using any of the Power Floor Brushes with the exception of large debris.

If your home has mostly hard and wood floors I would recommend that you consider the S12 PLUS package.

I operated the Tineco Pure One S12 on low, medium, and Plush Long Pile carpet.  I also used Coffee Grinds, Oatmeal, Talc Powder, and Pelletized Pet Food as I did on hard floors.

It easily removed 100% of all the test media from both low and medium pile carpet.  I found that it left about 3% of the media in the Plush Long Pile carpet.  I may have just not done a thorough job of going over the test rug.

NOTE:  The weird sound is an issue with the camera and not the vacuum.

Pet Hair

The S12 had absolutely no problem removing hair from the test carpet or hard floors.  The only issue I experienced was if you over-fill the dust cup the clumps of hair won’t fall out without some assistance with the included brush and hook.  They tend to get hung up on the filter apparatus.

If you happen to share your home with a pet or someone who has long hair the Direct-drive LED Multi-Tasker Power Brush is designed to prevent hair wrap.

To get a feel of the S12’s Above-Floor cleaning capability I tested it throughout my house. I tried out the various attachments to get a feel for the versatility and the function of each cleaning accessory.Tineco PURE ONE S12 with multi angle folding adapter and flex hose accessories for above floor cleaning applications

I found the S12 to be extremely useful for cleaning above-floor areas such as the coffee table and book shelves using one of the various dusting brushes.

The Mini Power Brush works exceptionally well for cleaning carpeted stairs, mattresses, and upholstery.  It has the necessary suction power to extract pet dander, pollen, mold spores, and hair from those places where our bodies come into contact.


Cleaning ceiling fan blades is extremely easy, especially with the Multi-Angle Flex Adapter (S12 PLUS Only) which articulates 90 degrees and adds approx. another 5 inches.  With the Wand attached the average person between 5′ 5″ and taller should be able to easily reach and clean 11 foot high ceiling fan blades.

The Flexible Extension Hose (S12 PLUS Only) is especially useful for the more delicate detail cleaning such as lamps or other fragile items.

Filtering System of the Tineco PURE ONE S12

The Tineco PURE ONE S12 features a 4 Stage HEPA-Level Sealed Filtration System with all (4) configurations: S12 M Lite, S12 M, S12, and S12 PLUS.tineco pure one s12 hepa filter assembly

Most cordless stick vacuums do not offer HEPA filtration because it  restricts the flow of air, diminishing the suction.  However, because of the high suction power of the S12 it isn’t an issue.

The S12 filtration system utilizes a Removable/Cleanable HEPA Pre Filter Cartridge that traps 99.99% of all the unhealthy micro particles such as mold spores, pollen, dust mites, and dust mite feces as tiny as 0.3 microns.  It is located in the center of the dust bin.  To remove it simply rotate it approx 1/8th turn and pull out.

Filter Cleaning

Tineco Pure ONE S12 and S12 PLUS package include rinse free filter cleaning tool
Automatic Pre-Filter Cleaning Tool

This filter cartridge of the S12 is large enough that it doesn’t require cleaning as often as many cordless stick vacuums.  However, when it does require cleaning Tineco has invented a unique system that utilizes the suction power of the vacuum.

Powered Rinse-Free Filter Cleaning Tool

This new tool makes filter cleaning so much easier than other   First, remove the dirty cartridge and replace with included second clean cartridge (Included w/ Each S12 Model Option).  Snap on the Automatic Pre-Filter Cleaning Tool ; insert the dirty filter cartridge; and turn on the vacuum.  It will run for approximately 50 seconds, rotating the filter clockwise and counter clockwise against rows of bristles while extracting the accumulated dust from the filter screen.tineco pure one s12 clean and dirty hepa filter cartridge

I found that the vast majority of the dust ended up as small clumps inside the dust cup for easy disposal while a small amount stuck to the clean cartridge.

This is a revolutionary development for cordless stick vacuums.  It eliminates one of the common complaints many users have with battery-operated vacuums – cleaning the filter.

The Automatic Pre-Filter Cleaning Tool is also available separately at Amazon.co and will also fit Tineco’s earlier models: A10 and A11 Series.


The Tineco Pure One S12 requires only minor maintenance tasks that are important with any battery operated vacuum.

  • Clean Filter regularly for maximum performance.
  • Check Floor Brush occasionally for any loose hardware that could scratch floors.
  • Keep batteries fully charged when not in use.
  • Read the Operator’s Manual for Maintenance check list

Is the Tineco Pure One S12 a Good Investment?

When you consider the high cost of flooring it makes sense that you should take good care of it.  Keeping it clean from damaging dirt greatly extends the life of both carpet, hardwood, engineered, Vinyl, stone and even tile flooring.  The only practical way is with a good vacuum cleaner.

The Tineco Pure One S12 has a relatively high price tag for any vacuum cleaner.  However, in addition to excellent cleaning performance, the S12 makes maintaining your entire home both easier and faster.  With all the attachments and High Tech features this vacuum enables you to clean every area of your house without the hassle of a cord.

If you are a person who places a high value on your time and want the best cleaning experience available, I believe the Tineco Pure One S12 represents a wise investment.

Pros and Cons of the Tineco Pure One S12 Cordless Vacuum

Things I Like

  • The SMART Technology significantly adds to the overall function and increases the operating time.
  • This vacuum is comfortable and easy to operate once you get the feel of it and learn about the features.
  • The cleaning performance of the S12 is on par with many top rated traditional corded vacuums.
  • Even with the least expensive S12 option (M Lite) there are enough attachments to clean every nook and cranny in the house.
  • Pleasantly quiet operation.
  • This the only Cordless Stick Vacuum I can recommend for cleaning Plush Long Pile Carpet.

Things I Don't Like

  • This vacuum is not free-standing or parkable which is typical of the stick design.
  • The Multi-Tasker Power Floor Brush does not handle large debris well on hard floors. (See Performance)
  • High price point


My Thoughts about the Tineco Pure One S12

Reviewing the Tineco Pure One S12 turned out to be a larger undertaking than I had anticipated. I discovered that exploring all of its many features and cleaning capability was actually quite enlightening as well as fun.

The S12 is without a doubt the most sophisticated and technically advanced cordless vacuum currently available. The SMART Features worked flawlessly in my testing and accomplished what they were designed to do – make cleaning your home faster, easier, and more efficient.

A New Industry Standard

Tineco pure one s12 provides quieter deeper longer cleaning
Tineco Pure One S12 shown

The SMART Suction dramatically increases the operating time to the point where an entire cleaning session can be completed without having to stop and recharge. Of course this will vary, according to the size of your home and how often you vacuum.

This technology has captured the attention of the entire floor care appliance industry.   I believe it will eventually become a standard feature with all the top tier brands.

A New Adventure

I found the attachments to be extremely useful and the Pure One S12 made cleaning a whole new adventure in my household.  Instead of procrastinating I found myself looking forward to cleaning and experimenting with all the different attachments.

As you would expect with a product of this caliber, the price point is high and that’s definitely a consideration. However, if you are the type of person who values your time the Tineco Pure One S12 makes a whole lot of sense.  In the long run it will probably save money by extending the life of your floors.

This vacuum has the potential to allow you spend more time doing the really important things in life and less time cleaning your house.

Tineco Pure One S12 Overall Test Score

My Recommendations

The Tineco Pure One S12 earned high scores in each category. The main decision comes down to which of the four (4) S12 package options makes the most sense for your home and particular needs. Keep in mind, each of the four packages feature the same Suction Rating of 150aw.

  1. PURE ONE S12 PLUS: This option is offers the ultimate whole-house cleaning system and is also the most expensive. It has all the SMART Features and the most accessories. A major distinguishing feature is that this option comes with the additional SOFT Floor Brush which is excellent for hard floors. I recommend this option for the person who demands the very latest technology and has both carpet and extensive areas of hard floors. This would be a good choice if you have pets in your home.
  2. PURE ONE S12: Other than the color variation of the Extension Wand, there is only 1 basic difference in the S12 and S12 PLUS. The S12 comes with the LED Multi-Tasker Power Brush ONLY. The S12 PLUS comes with both the LED Multi-Tasker Power Brush and the LED Hard Floor Soft-Roller Power Brush. I recommend the S12 option for the person who wants all the bells and whistles available but has mostly carpet and area rugs in their home.
  3. PURE ONE S12 M: This option is a good compromise for the person who wants the exceptional cleaning performance but is willing to forgo the LED Display and a couple less attachments. It does come with a Camera & Speaker Kit and a Phone Stand. It’s the ideal choice for a home that is mostly carpeted or lots of area rugs. But, it will also clean hard floors well with the LED Multi-Tasker Power Brush ONLY.  Just expect to make several passes at large debris.
  4. PURE ONE S12 M Lite: This option does not have the LED Display and fewer attachments than the other packages. It does come with the Phone Stand. This is a great choice if your home has mostly carpet or lots of area rugs and your budget is tight. It works just fine on hard floors except for large debris.

Which ever Option you choose I am confident you will be as impressed with your new Tineco Pure One S12 as I am.
