Black & Decker 18V Compact Pivot Vacuum w/Charging Base & Extra Filter
Our old hand vacuum died a year ago and I have been thinking of getting a new one, but hadn't done it. I saw this on tv one day and thought it looked great.
Got one for each of my daughters and they were thrilled too.
It does a good job. A little heavy, but not too bad.
Most Compact Vacuums do not seem to have great power but this one is different. It not only has power but has power to spare. The charging base that it sits on makes a great place to always park the unit after using. If there is any drawback it is that the unit is a bit heavy due to the use of NICAD battery instead of the newer and much lighter Lithium which offers longer power at a level rate. Over time NICAD's experience battery fade and just stop charging. Being that this is new can't determine how long it will last but once again for the money this is a fine unit. I would not hesitate to buy it in place of the overpriced and underpowered Dyson.
Great Little Vacuum!
Great little vacuum! I like the idea of having this hand held vacuum available when I need to take care of a little job. Also, find this vacuum helpful when cleaning the stairs. I am very happy with my purchase and would definitely recommend it to a friend.
Great for small pick ups
I use this near my cat's litter box almost daily. Have also used it to clean my car and it works well. Like that it's rechargeable. Easy to use and store.
A brief review...
If you're not a weight lifter, don't order this! My shoulder and upper arm were strained just taking it out of the box. Back it goes, and fast!
I have a pet bird and have used many different hand vacs over the years for feathers, seeds, bits of shredded paper, etc. If you own a bird, you know how necessary it is to have a good hand vac! This Black & Decker works great and is the best I've used by far. It's powerful and it's easy to empty. As others have mentioned in their reviews, it's a tad bit heavy, but nothing unmanageable and I'm sure the weight is the result of the heavy duty job it's capable of. I would definitely recommend it.
Best small vac I have ever own. A little heavy but boy does it do the job! So glad I own it
I didn't want to like it
I had spent so much money at QVC, I knew I had to return this. I tried to find things not to like about it, but I found I was using it every day. It was handy and has great suction. East to charge and clean. I find myself using it in places that I had not cleaned in awhile.
I bought this vacuum for my husband. He has no complaints and uses it constantly inside the house, in the car and does not have to worry about where to connect the electric cord. He says it works perfectly and likes that it does not have a loud excruciating sound. I am happy to that he uses it alot.
This machine is much more powerful than I expected a cordless to be! Very handy to use every day!
Better than my past vacs
Very good! Very powerful! It sucks better than my past vacs. It picks up pet hair, stuff that is hard to suck up very good. It's pretty heavy to handle it for a short time. It's kind of frustrating to open the bag to empty or move the nozzle up or down or move the brush when you want to use. Otherwise, it's 4 stars. I like it very much, better than my past vacs.
Black & Decker Rules !!
Great little vacuum....just what I needed. Powerful and compact. Excellent value for the price! Black & Decker never disappoints.
