The Black & Decker 18V Cordless Platinum Series Hand Vac is good for your automobile and for quick clean ups around the house. I don't think it is much better than any other hand held vacuum but does have a battery that is interchangeable with your other Black and Decker products which is helpful. It has average sucking power, not super strong. It does seem durable and is easy to handle. It does not come with any attachments for small crevices so getting into tight spots is not an option. It is versatile, I use it in my car, around my home for quick clean ups when something spills , I have even taken it to work to do under my desk. It is lightweight and you can maneuver it easily. It seems just as durable as any other hand held vacuum and has a nice modern design. I like the fact that the battery is interchangeable with other Black & Decker products since it is an 18V battery. The suction power could be stronger and it could have attachments , but other than that it does work well.
