The BLACK & DECKER CHV1410L Cordless Dust Buster is currently the number one best seller in handheld vacuums on Amazon.com, with other 2000 customers giving reviews with a combined score of 4.4 out of 5. With all of this in mind, expectations on the performance of all those features is very high; however, consumers have still found areas to pick at in their personal testimonials of this handheld vacuum.
Black & Decker Handheld Dust Buster
Powerful suction, convenience and accessibility are all here with this 16 volt Lithium Cordless Hand Vacuum but the interesting features sometimes come with a small flaw.
One of the key selling points of this machine is the idea of being able to get into all of those hard to reach places with ease and accessibility. This is partly achieved by the fact that Black and Decker have made this vacuum 50% longer than its predecessor, giving it greater reach without the need to bend so far, but the more interesting feature is the rotating nozzle that is designed to “target dirt in tight spaces”. This is perhaps seen as little gimmicky by some users but it does the job well enough. One suggestion that has been made, however, is to increase the size of the mouth of the nozzle a little; it definitely targets the tight spaces but could get away with an extra inch for much efficient cleaning of larger areas. Additionally, there are on-board brushes and crevice tools to aid the job further and the weight of just 2.7lbs means that it is incredibly lightweight and easy to maneuver from task to task.
Power is crucial for getting these effective cleans from all of these nozzles and this BLACK & DECKER CHV1410L promises to not only provide strong suction but to do so with fade free power and smart charge technology. The charging aspect has not wowed everyone; some are not convinced by the design of the charging base and 9 minutes of use after 3 hours charging is not quite enough for everyone. On the plus side, the act of cleaning up whatever has been collected within that time is pretty easy with the removable dust bowl and buyers love the fact that the bowl is transparent so they can see how much hair and dirt has been collected. The suction is pretty good so it does not take too long until buyers see that it is time to empty it out.
This CHV1410L Cordless Dust Buster is not quite the perfect handheld vacuum but it still does a great job.
There are areas with this machine where buyers have suggested some improvement to give the cleaning process a greater edge, such as the slightly wider mouth and a better charging dock. Despite this, many would argue that it holds its charge as well as it needs to, particularly for the time taken to fill that cleverly designed dust collector, and the suction in crevices and accessibility are big advantages here. The style will not suit everyone but the current wealth of buyers leaving 5 star reviews suggests that it will be a top seller for a long time.
