Black & Decker® 18V Dustbuster® Pivot® Hand Vacuum Cleaner
I bought this gadget to supplement a new upright rechargable vacuum which had no tools. The dustbuster does its job very well. It is powerful and get ino all crevices easily. It is easy to empty and clean. Its drawbacks are that it is fairly heavy, the way it folds means that the dust sometimes falls out of the nozel unless you check it first, the power runs out after 10-15 minutes continuous use so you have to plan when you're going to use it (but that is the case with most of this type of gadget). Overall I am very pleased with my purchase

super powerful but top heavy
Really impressed with the power of this rechargeable handheld vacuum. It is ideal for stairs, caravans etc and any other small job up to around 6/7 minutes. Unfortunately, it takes many hours to re-charge and only 6/7 minutes of use. I find the unit to be quite heavy at one end with the weight not balanced throughout the unit so I imaging it might be difficult for anyone with less than full strength in their hands/wrists. However, it seems to be robust and well made, with the foldaway design and neat charging unit well thought out and space saving. Overall, it is perfect for our intended use and although the period of time it runs is short, the power is not far off a domestic vacuum. It is the the most powerful hand held rechargeable vacuum I have ever used and for us it's perfect!

BIG power from such a tiny thing!
the suction power is unbelievable. Nearly as much as a full blown hoover. it does take a long time to charge tho for not much usage... bout 5 - 10 mins. still better than having to get the big hoover out and plug it in! easy to empty and use. bit on the heavy side if your going side to side but forward and back is fine. Great little handheld, Very happy!
