Pros: Nice design, powerful suction
Cons: No indication when battery is full charged, need to unscrew battery compartment to change battery
This hand vac is awesome and very powerful. It picks up the dirt in the car/truck easily. The only downfall is the battery life. You can vac two vehicles at most.
The only reason I gave it a 4 stars is, I wish it had a lithium ion battery pack. Of course, then, it would probably cost a lot more. But this doesn't effect its performance. You have to be careful with nickel cadmium batteries because they do have a memory if you continually charge them after each use and you don't run the batteries down. Other than that, I have had it for almost two years and it has performed flawlessly. I make sure that I don't plug in the carger until the batteries are almost run down. It really has great suction. My daughter came for a visit last week with her two little girls. She used it several times and when she went home, she immediately went out and bought one even though they had several other hand vacs. It is easy to empty and the cone filter only has to be cleaned every so often. As I said, I have had mine for almost two years and have had no problems with the batteries or anything else. I can vacuum my whole car interior on one charge. I did a lot of research before I bought this machine and I have not been dissappointed.
I've only had this for a few days. I've used it a few times already. Good power. Some might find it a little heavy. Not surprising, since it takes a larger battery to produce the additional power. I'd say it holds about 30 minutes of power. I checked this item out on various web sites, and it seems to be one of the better hand vacs out there. So, if you want the extra power and don't mind a little more weight go for it.
I love this hand vac. It is powerful, efficient, very portable and stores easily. Great product.
I have had this product for almost a year, and I love it. I wanted this particular hand vac. because of the suction power, and I am still happy with the suction after almost a year! I have used other black and decker hand vacs that I loved for a while, but they didn't keep the suction power and charged power for long enough. I was so happy with mine that I purchased one for my sister as a gift for her new house just the other day. Walmart.com has a better price than ebay so don't hesitate to purchase it here.
So far I love this vacuum. Just to try it out I used it on my stairs. I didn't think they were too dirty because it hadn't been long since I had vacuumed them. I was amazed at the dirt and dust bunnies it found. Then I used it on my van, which is what I got it for in the first place and it did just as well as the big vacuums at the car wash.
Would be a nice vac if it the battery would hold the charge. Unfortunately, had to return it.
This has plenty of power and is lightweight enough to vacuum your car. I have used it multiple times since purchasing it to vacuum the fake snow from my Christmas decorations. One problem...........I wish the the charge lasted a bit longer. You have to be quick to get a job done before it dies. Otherwise I would've given it 5 stars.
I've only had this vac for a few weeks now. I purchased it to replace a previous B&D hand vac that we used for about 7 years before it wouldn't take a recharge. This one is a bit heavier than the last and only has one speed but it has massive suction and gets the job done quickly. I use it to clean up the sand and dirt that my 5 dogs and 1 husband tracks into the "mud" room. I love the pivoting aspect of it. Very hand for cleaning odd places. I've yet to use it long enough for it to run down(it gets the job done quickly) so I can't comment on how long a charge will last. You can leave this one plugged in all the time.
I purchased this as a replacement for another Black and Decker hand vac. Like the old one, the power is great. I love the built in wand and brush. It is disappointing that Black and Decker
decided not to include any type of wall mount or stand with this model. Instead of being able to
convienently hang it on a wall, it now has to take up space on a shelf. This is the only reason why I am only giving 4 stars. The price was great at Walmart. Home delivery was super fast.
We bought this model to replace our old Dustbuster, PHV1800, which died due to a dead battery. That model had a convenient recharging stand that assured that the unit was always fully charged. The new one didn't have a stand and needed to be plugged into the recharger whenever the battery runs low. There is no charge status light or indicator, thus it is likely that when the unit hasn't been used for some time period it may need to be recharged before use.
We returned it to the store and are shopping around for a more suitable product.
I received this little machine for Christmas from my husband. At first, I loved it. Then after charging it, it would not hold charge and died within seconds. Irritated. Returning.
This is the best 18v cordless vac on the market. I tried a few others and they fell way short. The suction on this one is great. The battery lasts a long time. I don't have any problem with the fan blowing dirt across the floor. I'm careful not to run the vac over my pile of dirt. I have been using this vac for six months now and I love it. Don't look any further; buy this vac; you won't be disappointed. Walmart had the best price and it was so easy ordering from them. Shipping was fast too!
Battery life is fine, read the instructions, you have to let charge for 24 hrs before use.
I used after 3 hrs and it died quick, then let charge for 24+ hrs and it last longer than I've ever needed it for .
1. strong suction.
2. very handy
3. leave pluged in all time for best results. works as a night light.
4. collects all dust. so clean filters often for continude strength in suction.
5 love this machine and I'm not usually a Black and Decker guy.
I bought this for our work place and I would love to have one at home. It has a lot of suction and it works better than our vaacum! The only thing I don't like about it is that it's a little heavy and does not have a wall mount.
After 5 to six minutes of using the vac you have to put it back on the charger...
Unit was charged for 24 hours per the product manual. The battery charge does not allow clean-up except for the smallest jobs. Nice feature, seems well made, but just does not perform. Maybe it is just a bad unit? Will charge one complete cycle and retry, but if results are the same it's going back for a refund.
My family and I have several of these vacs. It's the most powerful hand vac we have found. Be sure to get the 18 volt. There is a 12 volt but it's not as powerful.
If your looking for something handy when you need a quick and small vacuum job, this is the unit. Its powerful and lite weight. Instead of breaking out the big vacuum just grab this puppy and go to work. I use it for all kind of things. Vacuuming up dog hair, top shelves, any quick job around the house, this will work.
