Summary: This is the best hand vac we have ever had. It does wonders on the cat fur. The bad news...the battery died in 6 months. The good news... we called B&D to see if we could get a replacement battery, instead they sent an entire new Dustbuster at no charge (not even shipping).
Summary: I'm so glad I paid a little extra for the lithium ion battery. My old hand vac had the more prevalent Ni-Cd battery and it never held a charge and finally got so bad I ended up replacing it with this black and decker. I love the narrow nozzle that easily reaches in tight spaces. Great design.
Summary: It's the best hand vac I have ever used!Strong suction that sucks up pet hair,crumbs,and mystery items that lurk behind and under the sofa.Strong enough to pick up a shoe that was out of reach even.Vacuuming the house once a day is enough and sometimes even after doing so the place needs a touch...
Summary: I've had this vac for about a month now, and so far I like it. My old B&D regular battery vac died after 3 years and you could not replace the battery. I am hoping that this one lasts longer. I use it in an area to pick up spilled cat litter that lays along the edges of my bathroom floor.
