With 9.6 Volt Cyclonic-Action and an AccuREACH expendable nozzle, Black decker dustbuster lithium does come with some cool add-ons. What I love about Black decker dustbuster lithium is that it comes with a 2-year manufacturer’s warranty.
Even if I chanced upon a faulty unit, I can easily return it and get a replacement. This vacuum cleaner comes with an upholstery brush, VF96 filter and optional wall-mounted charging base.
It also features a translucent dust bin which is useful for indicating when it is time for a cleanout.
While I was very much impressed with the suction power, quietness and sleek design at first, the total battery life its not very impressive. After about 3 months, I see signs of battery deterioration, although that is to be expected for all battery-powered products.
Features of Black Decker Dustbuster Lithium
The suction power seems to have dwindled a little as well. Once again, I think this does happen in relation to the weakening of battery power… it doesn’t seem to be a real built-in defect of some sort.
Although I have to admit that I like the expandable nozzle very much, which I use for sucking up irritating hard to reach corners and from the front to backseat without having to move myself physically.
You might wonder to know that black & decker cordless also works great within car interiors too, especially the upholstery attachment which allows me to go all out at the car upholstery.
Pros and Cons
I feel that this isn’t one of the best handheld vacuums when it comes to battery life. Perhaps the problem lies with not properly charging the unit.
Usually, hand-held vacuums require full battery drainage once a while and a full charge up for proper maintenance of battery life. Since I have been negligent with that for some time, this might be the case.
Clogging can be a problem too as well with this unit. When this happens, I find myself needing to empty the dust bin pretty often. Despite its apparent flaws (or perhaps my own).
I feel that Black decker dustbuster lithium does fabulously well within the accessories department, especially with its AccuREACH expendable nozzle.
I would put my money on another available dust buster for a safer bet. In my opinion, a better alternative you should consider instead is the Black & Decker PHV1800CB Handheld Vacuum
