The Black & Decker CHV1410L Cordless Dust Buster is a handheld, lightweight and compact vacuum cleaner designed for quick cleans up around the home. It has a longer, wide-mouthed, rotatable nozzle than previous models improving its reach and versatility. It comes with brush and crevice accessories which are stored onboard for easy access and from being misplaced. The long life lithium Ion battery means it is always ready to use for those quick cleanup jobs around the house.
It has an integrated long life Lithium Ion battery that provides good run-time -around 15 minutes – and is quickly rechargeable – approximately one hour – via its charging base unit. The charging base unit is a circular device that must be placed on a flat surface – it is not wall mountable – and the vacuum lies on top, so nozzle clearance is required around the charging unit. The charger flashes a blue charging indicator whilst charging is in progress. Once fully charged the vacuum can hold the charge for up to 18 months. The battery uses smart charge technology which uses up to 50% less energy to fully charge and does not suffer from memory effect, which means it can be safely stored in it charging unit. The battery has a nominal voltage of 14v.
Stylish modern design
The Dust Buster has a modern stylish yet practical design. Its translucent collection jar lets you see when it needs emptied and it is quickly and easily released from the body of the vacuum. The vacuum being hand held is very compact and lightweight and has a nominal nozzle reach of just less than six inches making it very easy to handle yet still reach awkward places. The filters and collection jar are quick release for removal and washing.
The Collection jar and the filters are located just below the handle so are clearly visible when the device is in use. They are easily removable – there is a quick release button – and are cleaned under running water. The filters are not prone to clogging due to the cyclonic filtration system. This is a technique where the agitated air around the filters prevents dirt clogging up the filters and reducing the vacuum’s sucking power.
The Dust Buster has a much improved Lithium battery over the previous models’ nicad battery. It is long lasting, with good run-time. The battery has no memory issues when recharging, and has quick recharge time.
Very powerful suction and will work on both carpets and hard surfaces.
The collections jar and filters are easily detached and washed under running water.
Charging unit takes up space
The charging unit is not wall mountable and has to be placed on a flat surface. The Vacuum attaches to it horizontally so it requires a lot of clearance.
The Black & Decker Dust Buster is a good multi-purpose hand held vacuum which has long battery life, with good run time and charge retention during storage – 18 months. It has a longer nozzle than on previous models improving reach. The on-board accessories –nozzle extender, flip up brush and rotatable nozzle – also make it more versatile.
