Not nearly enough power in this hand held vac for my needs!


I was at my best friend's house the other day and we were chatting while she was doing some light house work. Her son had worn his baseball cleats into the kitchen and they had left behind some of the red Georgia clay of the ball field, so she grabbed her **Black & Decker CHV1218 DustBuster 12V Cordless Cyclonic Hand Vac Vacuum **to get the clay off of her linoleum floor. I watched her go over and over that dried up clay with the Black & Decker CHV1218 DustBuster 12V Cordless Cyclonic Hand Vac Vacuum about 10 times and for about 15 minutes before she finally got it all up! I'm serious! I don't know if she has used it so often that it's lost some of it's punch, or it never had much power to begin with, but I do know one thing--I won't ever buy one of these hand held vacuums! The long nozzle did come in handy when she was vacuuming up the dirt that had accumulated on the floor along the edge of her bar and in the corner where the bar meets the wall, but it took what seemed like forever to clean up a mess that would have taken my [Dirt Devil M0914 Extreme Power Bagless Handheld Vacuum][1]  less than five minutes to suck up and be back on it's base waiting for me to grab it for it's next job! Here I was thinking that I was going to be needing a new handheld vac soon, but after watching my friend using hers, and comparing the two--I'm perfectly happy with what I have and don't see any need to by a new one until mine bites the dust, so to speak. **Product Description: ** ***"Includes DustBuster 12V Cordless Cyclonic Hand Vac - CHV1218, AccuREACH Extending Nozzle, Plastic Pre-Filter, Dishwasher Safe Filter - VF08, Wall Mountable Charging Base."*** **Tecnical Details: ** - ***AccuREACH nozzle for extended reach in tight spaces *** - ***Cyclonic action keeps suction power strong *** - ***EZ clean dial cleans filter to maintain full suction power *** - ***One step empty so hands stay clean *** - ***Wall mountable charging base for grab and go convenience *** The long nozzle is nice, and my friend keeps her handheld vac on it's base which is always on her counter, plugged in, charged, and ready to go to work. The only problem is that when it goes to work, it doesn't work nearly as well as I expect a cordless vacuum to work. I would never even consider purchasing a Black & Decker CHV1218 DustBuster 12V Cordless Cyclonic Hand Vac Vacuum, and I certainly wouldn't recommend that you buy one. You can find much more powerful hand held vacuums at prices that are comparable to this product. Leave this one on the shelf!
