Product Description

Product Description

Do you want the ultimate in power and the convenience of cordless? Black and Decker is the first to bring Cyclonic Action to a Cordless Hand Held Vacuum! If you notice that your hand vac doesn't seem to pick up as much as it used to or it doesn't have as much power as you think it should, it's probably a clogged filter. With the new Cyclonic Action DustBuster, dirt and debris is circulated in the bowl and around the filter, allowing air to pass through the machine with no reduction in suction power. With the filtration system running so efficiently, the DustBuster has more power and more run time than any other cordless hand held vacuum in the marketplace. With the translucent bowl, you can actually see the dirt moving around the filter and you can tell when it's time to empty the collection bin. This 14.4 volt DustBuster also has a Filter Cleaning Wheel that allows you to shake off the fine debris that gets into the filter by merely turning the dial on the unit. No more touching your dirty filter to clean it out. And, because you are enhancing your filtration system by cleaning out the filter, one turn of the dial turns up the suction power by 80%.

With unsurpassed sucking power and the convenience of cordless, Black & Decker's 14.4-Volt Cyclonic DustBuster is a great vacuum to have around the house, shop or office. Cyclonic Action circulates dirt and debris in the bowl and around the filter, allowing air to pass through the machine with no reduction in suction power. With the filtration system running so efficiently, the DustBuster has more power and more run time than any other cordless, hand held vacuum. The translucent bowl let's you see the dirt moving around the filter, so you know when it's time to empty the collection bin. No more handling dirty filters, when its time to clean, simply turn the Filter Cleaning Wheel to shake off fine debris. That simple action increases suction power by 80 percent! A quick-slide charging base mounts on the wall for easy access and quick response to tracked-in mud, spilt cereal, and more! --Brian Olson

Well, like most people have reported here, this product works great. Until the battery goes. Then try getting a new one.

I've had my Dustbuster for a year and five months, and the battery's going. So I checked on Amazon for a replacement. They don't have any. So I went to the Black & Decker website to find one. They don't have any. So I called their customer service line. They were closed due to bad weather. Try later.

To their credit, B&D's instruction sheet gives detailed information about disposing of the old battery properly. You really need to do that, folks, it's toxic. Don't throw it in the trash! Think of your grandchildren, if any.

But the Dustbuster instruction sheet is very vague about getting a new battery. It says to check with your authorized service center or call C/S. Replacing the battery, if you could find one, isn't trivial -- you don't just drop it in, you have to take the Dustbuster apart. You need tools. You have to remove several screws, pull on some plastic tabs, etc. It's not hard, but the mechanically-challenged could have a problem.

I finally located a not-so-local dealer who has the replacement battery. It costs $30.40, plus shipping. In other words, the replacement battery costs the same as buying a whole new Dustbuster! Does that make sense?

If I was a conspiracy theorist, I'd almost think B&D was purposely making it hard to replace the battery. Guess they'd rather we bought a new Dustbuster.

I bought this item at Walmart. At first I thought it was too expensive for a Dustbuster. However, this model definitely has much more suction power than any Dustbuster I've owned. It approaches the power of a corded vacuum. I has 2 speeds, and the high speed has no trouble picking up small stuff. It is also easy to clean. Without doubt it is the best Dustbuster yet.

Being a college student, I am very conscience of price. Though this dustbuster was a little more than the cheaper models, I am extremely glad that I went with the higher 14.4 volt model. I bought the dustbuster mainly for my small carpet in my room. WOW!! This dustbuster got up so much hair and dust that I didn't even know was there. I found myself dusting up everywhere and lending it all my roommates. It was the first dustbuster that cleaned what it promised and so much more. Highly recommended and a great value to price ratio!!

Have had my cyclonic for about a year and a half. Worked fantastically for that first year and then we noticed it wasn't staying charged as long as it should - which means decreased suction. Did a little research and found that many other people have had the same problem. The biggest issue I have is that you cannot replace the battery!! So I guess Black & Decker expect all of us to buy a new DustBuster every year...not to mention how environmentally unfriendly this is. Right now, I'm able to use it for about a minute before it starts loosing suction to the point where I can't pick up anything more than cracker crumbs. VERY disappointed in this product.

I bought this hand vac on the recommendations below and I have to say that everything they say is right: It's powerful and picks up most what you'd need to. The box has a picture of the thing picking up a Corn Pops-like cereal, and while I haven't picked up anything that big yet, it does a fine job with my girlfriend's hair on the bathroom floor and the cat litter that inevitably piles up outside the box.

Look to pick it up for 32 plus tax, shipped, as that's about the price you can get it from brick and mortar stores (Bed Bath and Beyond has a 20% coupon they send in the mail fairly regularly).

There's also a newer model, the CHV1500 which is more powerful and has a HEPA filter which helps to eliminate allergens, but is also about a bit more expensive (it used to be 80% more expensive, but is only 25% more now), which you might want to look into as it's got great reviews too, but this particular model does the job just fine.

Kudos to Amazon; I bought this product and got free shipping (5 to 9 shipping days, estimated). It arrived next day! Impressive.

As to the product, it has worked well thus far. Don't expect this little guy to replace your regular vacuum cleaner as some reviewers do. It plays a specific role in your cleaning arsenal. It knows its role well and performs as expected. Nothing more.

The CHV1400 works best for light cleaning. I like to use instead of a dustpan after sweeping with broom. Much easier. It's also great for cleaning along the baseboards and corners when you don't want to mess with getting out the vacuum's attachments.

I haven't had any trouble with running out of charge. Manual states the 14.4V model should last 12-15 minutes per charge. But that is constant use. Usually cleaning consists of only a series of quick uses with this machine, so the 12-15 minute estimate may be a bit misleading. Nice for cleaning up in a car, but if you're going for a deep clean, it would probably be better to drag out the full size vac for the job. But for picking up a few crumbs quickly, this machine will do the job well.

Overall, if you don't already have a cordless, handheld vacuum, this one is worth the money.
