The BLACK & DECKER 16V Bagless Cordless Lithium Hand Vacuum Model CHV1410L is one of the most high-quality, reliable hand vacs available - particularly in this price range.
This handheld vacuum is small and lightweight coming it at only 3.8 pounds and works on multiple surfaces. It has strong suction and fade-free power. The translucent bagless dirt catcher is easy to empty out. In this class against comparable units, the CHV1410L beats them all.
The only reason we didn't give this vac a 5 out of 5 is because the battery doesn't last as long as we'd like. Although, for the small odd jobs this vacuum was built for, it shouldn't be much of a problem. On the plus side, the new lithium technology only uses about 50% of the energy that other vacs in this class use making this a strong winner.
Overall, we give it a 4.9 out of 5 stars, which by our standards means we must really love it!
