Black + Decker CHV1410L Dust Buster Hand Vac Review
A vacuum cleaner is actually a “suction cleaner” because it uses suction pressure (lower than atmospheric pressure). Typical modern vacuum cleaners were first used decades ago and they are as big as your portable lawnmower and used electrical cable to power the motor. Overtime, these types of cleaners became more popular as washing machines.
Big vacuum cleaners were big power consumers, adding more burdens on your electrical bills. And years later, hand-held vacuum cleaners (also called hand vac for short) were introduced into the market, and housewives were never as satisfied as before. But still, it uses electrical cable to bring power to the motor.
Not so long ago, these cleaners were seen evolving in leafs and bounds as the machine was developed into a battery operated power cleaner, much to the delight of not only housewives but also those in the hotel and other similar industries which makes dust cleaning more convenient. But it did not end with dust; soon, other solid particles were also being sucked by these powerful cleaners.
Today, lithium-powered vacuum cleaners dominate the market. Like the Black + Decker CHV1410L Dust Buster Hand Vac which is a portable (hand-held) vacuum cleaner that is cordless and battery operated. This high-tech hand vacuum cleaner is really so handy any able-bodied individuals, especially busy moms, could use easily. Wait until you discover its awesome features and qualities, read on!
1. Smart Charge Technology
The highly efficient battery of this hand vac is a product of Smart Charge Technology which automatically shuts off the unit when it is fully charged. This allows your Black + Decker unit to stay on the charger when it is not time to use it, storing the energy on it to maintain its long running time. This technology is guaranteed to use ½ of the energy to achieve maximum capacity compared to other brands.
2. Translucent Dirt Bowl (bag less)
The bowl container of this handy dust cleaner is a translucent but durable plastic where dirt is stored after sucking from floors, crevices and other hard-to-reach locations. This way, you could easily see the bowl if it is already time to empty or clean it. Unlike other vacuum cleaners, this one does not have a bag as dirt-storage so you don’t have to bend from time to time just to pick it up for cleaning. The bowl can be detached and could be cleaned in the sink.
3. Battery: Lithium-ion
The lightweight lithium-ion battery that powers this monster of a sucker is a 16V, 18.20 watts type and is rechargeable. This dust buster’s battery lasts longer than any other brand which maximizes performance and does not have memory effect. The battery could last or hold a charge for 18 months without recharging so you could pick up the cleaner anytime you want.
Since this unit is battery-operated, there is no annoying cable to wind-up and loosen every time you need to suck dirt. What’s more? Simply put, you don’t have to hold any cable while you are cleaning the ceiling, floors, walls and any high location dirt-areas. That’s really comfortable and convenient when you are using a cordless device.
Having a dimension of 17.5 X 5.5 X 7.8 inches (that’s Length X Width X Thickness), this sucker is so handy even small people could use this with ease and quickness. You don’t have to spend so much of your time just for cleaning; you could very well do other chores in a short time.
