Using a tool or appliance without the restriction of an electricity cord gives a good degree of freedom to use it anywhere around the house or even outside. Blenders are no different. You may want to show off your mixology skills by the pool or simply need a quick blend when making a soup while camping or in a place where the ready power supply is unavailable. They also come handy when you are blending right from the pot on the stove like you may do for curries and soups. They are comparatively easy on the pocket compared to electric blenders and are easy to clean too.
Before you consider buying one, think thoroughly of what you need it for. There are two types of battery operated blenders – one hand operated and the other which is placed on the countertop. The handheld blender works for a good whisk on the go while a stand blender if you want to make smoothies or blend in larger quantities for the family. Size matters too. A single person dorm room blender will typically be different from that used by a family of four. Some blenders come with chopping and whisking accessories which make it a complete pack to work with. Some come with spare blades just in case you break the first ones trying to blend something of an incorrect size. But other than these basic factors, you need to look at power consumption and battery lifespan for your usage. Some blenders with rechargeable batteries may end up being heavier too. Here is the list of 5 best battery operated blenders to choose that suites your lifestyle-
PROMiXX 2.0 – The World’s Best Vortex Mixer / Blender / Shaker

The scientifically-engineered blunt blade preserves micronutrients for improved protein performance. The container is also BPA and DEHP-free and easy to clean with a little soap and water.

Forget your regular shaker bottles and go for the PROMiXX which does a far superior job at blending and keeping nutrients intact.
Electric Protein Blender and Mixer Bottle by Ironsmith Sports
The makers of this blender are quite sure that you’ll be smitten by this little new addition to your fitness kit. Which is why they are confidently offering a money back warranty. The size is just about right. The container stores 500ml which is perfect for one portion of a large shake and easy enough to carry in your gym bag. The kit includes a USB Rechargeable Protein Vortex Mixer Cup. The catch here is that this blender is exclusively for protein smoothies. It will not be able to blend ice or fruits. This leaves quite a bit desired. Would you buy a blender just because it can make only good smoothies or would you rather go in for an all rounder? This one is also leakproof and BPA free.
ANDOTA H101 Rechargeable Electric Hand Blender
This is a rechargeable blender that also comes with an anti-splash guard to keep the mess at a minimum. The stainless steel blades allow uniform stirring which makes this good for baby food too. The handle comes with an ergonomic grip for easy usage and handling. This mixer too comes with a 30-day 100% money back guarantee and assures complete satisfaction. This works well for smooth blends for coffee but it may not work too well for hard blends for purees and soups. If you like stirring up little things quickly, this can be a great addition to your kitchen. This one does create a minor ruckus when in use so keep an ear out for it. Don’t expect to blend in smoothies but it can still do a decent job with salad dressing.
Cuisinart CSB-78 Smart Stick Plus Cordless Rechargeable Hand Blender
This is one of the best blenders in its category. It comes with a whisk and chopper attachment, single on/off power button and a brushed stainless steel blending shaft. It runs for about 20 mins during a single charge although there are several people who’ve reported that the system simply doesn’t hold the charge. Currently, there is no ‘indicator’ as such to show the charge %. So even after you charge it fully, you’ll not know if you have. Only time is a guess. It seems quite ridiculous that you have to charge for a few good hours to actually make it work for 10-12mins. This one, again, is good for your basic blends but it won’t blend solids like veggies.
Cuisinart CSB-300 Smart Stick Variable Speed Cordless Rechargeable Hand Bl
This one too has a run time pf 20 mins but it differs by having multiple speed settings. The shaft is thin and with 3” commercially designed blades. The electric knife attachment is perfect to carve a roast. The 3-cup chopper works great for chopping garlic and other such ingredients. The whisk attachment will allow you to beat a cake batter or chop off veggies.There is an inbuilt safety feature which prevents from accidental usage but it also ends up warranting the use of both hands to use this blender. While we can always think of tasks for your free hand and how you could have whipped up a storm, it can’t be accomplished with this blender. The shaft is long and helpful to get into deep pots for a thorough mix.
