This new design in hand held vacuums is truly a game changer. Black+Decker has a true winner here. It is border line sexy! Sort of like that other vacuum cleaner company! There is nothing to put together...ready to use right out of the box other than there is a 16 hour delay before use for completely charging the Lithium Ion battery. But the question is...is it powerful, good suction and easy to clean...YES to all of those. More than enough power when you need to clean up small jobs around the house or garage. It also has a built in brush that simply flips forward so you have the option of additional suction. This is a much better design than previous versions...marked improvement in hand held units...I love it. It also comes with an attachment that allows you to store it from a wall. I was skeptical but once I used it, I was a believer...you will not be disappointed with this purchase...it has it all, function and esthetic design.

Great New Home or Car Cleaning Tool!
I chose this small hand vac because I live with several cats and must deal with scattered cat litter every day! This little vac does just what I needed it to do. It has really good suction and gets that cat litter quick as could be without scattering it everywhere!
Easy to use, lightweight, easy to clean, simple to charge using the included wall bracket support. It's small enough to leave plugged in at the wall for charging without it being in the way. Best thing is the cats have not even noticed it there.
It's also great for quick pick ups of crumbs, dust, cat hair or lint from the furniture using the little brush that flips up. Using the “pull out” crevice tool makes a tough job simple with catching all that dust that builds up around the edges of the baseboards.
Looking forward to getting a long time service with this one . My husband always highly praised any tool from Black & Decker. So far it is living up to my expectations just fine.
I give this one a 5 star rating and highly recommend the vac to anyone.
I was given the opportunity to own this vac free of charge in exchange for my honest and fair product review.
Powerful Little Sucker!
I have had my last trusty DustBuster for awhile but it didn't have attachments to get in small places. The things that I like best about this BLACK+DECKER HLVA315J62 Dustbuster Lithium Ion Hand Vacuum, Slate Blue are:
No cord to confine you going area to area
It's very powerful
Easy to open to dispose of dirt collected
Charge when runs out
No cons at all, they've thought of everything designing it and it's everything I could ask for from a hand held mini vac!
Lightweight and Powerful
Through the years I have owned several dustbusters, some better than others. This dustbuster is very lightweight and I was surprised at how powerful it was when I first tried it. It does a great job and the mounting plate that comes with it made it very easy to store and still be readily available to use. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a quick way to clean up small spills.
The dustbuster had a charge when I received it. The instruction stated the unit should be charged for about 16 hours initially. Then put it back on the charger after each use. After I ran down the initial charge it came with, I charged it again. A light glowed on top of the unit while it was charging and the light went off when the charge was complete. I did not install the wall mount to hang/store the unit. The dustbuster was light weight and easy to manage with one hand. The dustbuster seemed to have a strong suction. I used it with the flip down brush attachment on a tile floor with “wood-look” grooves and a lot of dust. The brush was effective in getting into the tile grooves and grout lines. I like the brush attachment and that it is permanently attached to the nozzle. The canister is fairly large and is clear so I could tell when I needed to empty it. The filter was easy to remove and clean. The trade-off for having a clear canister is it looks dirty/dusty if I just empty it and don't actually wash/rinse it out after each use. I saw no safety issues with the unit. Overall, the dustbuster seems to be high quality, large capacity, and easy to use.
First Class Dustbuster
Black and Decker has finally made a dustbuster that incorporates all the best features of past models. It comes with a very powerful motor charged by a top of the line lithium ion battery. It has a very long run time. It is easily charged with a simple plug-in on top of the unit. Even more convenient is the wall mounted hanger that holds the plug end of the cord so that once hung up, charging is very easy. The vacuum itself is very light weight and has a handle that makes it well balanced. The on/off switch is positioned under your thumb and is easy to work. In front of the switch is the dust bowl release button. When it is time to empty the visible dirt collector just hit the button and the collector comes right out. Turn it upside down and dump it out. The manual says the filter can be washed out in warm soapy water if you choose. The vacuum has a long narrow nozzle that easily fits into tight and small spaces and can be extended another 4 1/2 inches by putting on the spout. There is also a brush that fits into the space over the end of the spout. This is one of the best dustbusters I have owned and it comes with a 2 year warranty. Definitely one to buy.
THIS ISN'T YOUR DADDY'S DUSTBUSTER!!!!
This ultra modern version of a classic is, hands down, the coolest looking most powerful handheld dust bunny destroyer I've ever had the pleasure of point, aim and click eradication. This dustbuster is stylish, almost futuristic in it's look, but packs more power and holds more dust particles than it's predecessors. Nearly a pound of debris is what this monster holds. Some of the major hi lights and bonuses are that it is equipped with an ion lithium battery which lasts for hours and lets you know when it's charging or when it's completely charged and an innovative feature of an indication light when it needs to be recharged. Another cool feature is the on board accessories which eliminate the problem of attaching, detaching or remembering where you've placed said attachments. What's more, the dust bin detaches for dust free hands when emptying the bin. That is a major plus. The filter and pre filter are washable and for even more added value, this sweet number comes with a wall mount which not only comes in handy, but, is very cool. I would highly recommend this product to anyone who is in the market for a quicker picker upper.
Handy little vac
This Black and Decker Dustbuster is a very handy little cleaning tool. It is replacing an older model that I have had for years. I prefer this newer version because it has features that help me to clean better. First of all it has a flip up brush for dusting and upholstery and drapes. It's especially good for drapes because there is no hose connected to a big vacuum that would have a limited range of reach. I also really like the pull out crevice tool which my older model didn't have. It reaches into narrow spaces that I never could reach before especially in my car. The dust bin is easy to empty and you can wash it out and dry it for the next use. There is a wall mount included if you want to mount your Black and Decker Dustbuster on the wall. I don't do that but it's good to have that option. The Lithium battery is another step up from my older model. It seems to give more suction power and it also extends the battery life. There is a charging indicator light which lets you know that it is charging and when it is fully charged. I don't only use my Black and Decker Dustbuster in the house. It's also great for my car. Which was the initial reason for my having a Dustbuster from the beginning. But when I realized how versatile it is I began to use it around the house for quick pick ups when I don't want to take out my big vacuum. This is the cleaning tool I reach for first.
An excellent hand vacuum
I previously use a Shark hand vacuum, and I was pleased with it. The battery failed, and I decided to buy a new one. I got this Black and Decker from Walmart, and I would have to say that I am very pleased with it as well. This review is for model HLVA315J. I like the diminutive size. Hand vacuums don't need to be big and heavy; they are designed for small jobs – right? This is a small hand vacuum, and I like that.
Let me discuss some of the features. You don't have to worry about losing the attachments as they are all attached to the unit. It has a flip-up brush that is convenient to use. There is an extendable crevice tool that simply slides out of the nozzle – how nice. It has a washable filter that can be cleaned with soap and water if needed. It also comes with a wall mount bracket if you choose to mount it on a wall. I choose to simply place it in a cabinet, which has an outlet inside. It has a lithium battery, and it can be safely left on charge for the next use. I expect the lithium battery to provide better performance than the older NiMH and NiCad batteries. The lithium battery also provides what I would call significant suction for most any job. I also want to mention how easy it is to remove the dust bowl in order to empty out the dirt, and that the filter is behind a perforated metal screen. With my previous vacuum, the filter was inside the dust bowl and always got full of debris and dust that had to be cleaned off each time.
Yes, I like this vacuum and definitely recommend it.
Hand held lithium battery vacuum
The Black and Decker Dust Buster model HLVA315J62 Has A 10.8 Volt Lithium battery and a two year warranty.
It weighs in at a very manageable 2.4 pounds. It's 16" closed and 21" extended. It's equipped with a built in flip up brush, battery charger and wall hanger bracket. There's a fair amount of suction power and the noise level is as expected. I used it to vacuum out my Jeep and it did a good job. The cup is clear plastic and removes with one button and allows easy access to the washable filter. A good value at Walmart.
