BLACK+DECKER 18 V Lithium-Ion Flexi Vacuum, More powerful than it might have seemed on first use, a handy unit for lounge or work-room.

Black & decker lithium vacuum. Pleased so far, good suction and easy to use.

So useful both in the home and car and flexible hose great advantage.

BLACK+DECKER 18 V Lithium-Ion Flexi Vacuum

  • Lithium technology for strong suction and fade free power
  • Integrated 1.5 M flexible hose which allows you to reach all areas of your home where other hand vacs cannot
  • ECO smart charge technology – charges 4 x faster than other cordless hand vacs and automatically shuts off when the battery is fully charged
  • Includes short crevice tools and soft brush for cleaning versatility
  • The side empty door is an easy to empty system which means all the dirt goes straight in the bin and your hands don’t touch the dirt

Great till a tiny piece falls off. I loved this for just over a year, but today when emptying it as usual, a tiny piece of plastic fell off the door hinge and now the door will not reattach. That tiny piece of plastic has cost me £85. I can only guess that the plastic is very brittle, now to decide whether i can afford to replace it.

I like it a lot, certainly does the job. Only small issue as others have mentioned, the on and off button is stiff but so far doesn’t affect the operation.

Herself finds this really useful. And, on the occasions i use it i have been more than impressed.

BLACK+DECKER 18 V Lithium-Ion Flexi Vacuum : Great product, i purchased 12 months ago for a new car and european holiday, worked a treat great suction, battery life approx. Indoor use around the home great, filter requires maintenance as to be expected, still holds 10mins charge after 12 months.

    Works jsut fine especially for car cleaning. My only question is whether the filter is robust enough and whether spers are available at a sensible price for the filters.

    As i say though as it’s the only cordless vacuum of this design with a proper hose it’s still very useful for me. This is exactly what i needed for work, so for that reason it gets 4 stars because it’s really saved me some time and hassle everyday. However my only complaints are that for 18v li-ion i would have expected it to be slightly more powerful and also if you don’t charge it regularly it quickly loses charge while not being used.

    Perfect for a daily clean of my taxi. Works very well and is powerful for a small hand held vacuum. Perfect for a daily clean of my taxi.

    Easy to hold and particularly like the flexible hose. Well constructed and powerful.

      Powerful hand held vac, very easy to use and with a long battery life. . After returning a couple of disappointing hand held vacs, i am really pleased with this one. It’s still a ‘dust buster’ and not intended to match the power or versitility of a cylinder vacuum, but it’s actually pretty good in use. I opted for this 18 v version (more expensive, but more powerful than the 14 v) and the suction is quite strong – certainly adequate to vacuum a car, which isn’t the case with similar units. It’s handy that the lithium battery means that the unit can continually be left on the charging station (it will not receive any further charge if it does not need it) as this means that it is always ‘topped up’ with full charge. I have used it for 15 minutes, without it losing any suction power and the battery was still going strong. The best feature of the design (for me) is the fact that the main unit can be held in one hand (or placed on the seat/floor of the car), whilst the other hand is only holding the end of the hose and tool. So many other hand held vacs are one complete unit and can be quite heavy to use. The short crevice tool and flip down brush are great for most jobs – including skirting boards and above doors, but there is also a longer crevice tool supplied, which slots into place on the charging unit.

    Love this, so useful around the house. Love this, so useful around the house. It’s not very powerful but it’s only small so didn’t really expect it to be.
