Black & Decker CHV1410L Cordless Dust Buster Hand Vac Review
Choosing a handheld vacuum cleaner is not as complicated as you initially assume. It is only a matter of figuring out what kind of cleaning needs you have. At the same time, you do not always need all those bells and whistles for a facile cleaning operation. With these ideas in mind, Black & Decker CHV1410L Cordless Dust Buster Hand Vac is one of the best rated solutions in commerce. It is excellent for those who do not want to spend a fortune on nonsense functionality features, but only on things that truly matter. What should you expect from it?
The CHV1410L model makes a good choice on the cleaning of carpets, upholstery and floors. The tight opening makes it very useful for small things like breadcrumbs, dust and debris. While the suction is 50% higher than in other models, the opening does not allow sucking up large stuff. When it comes to carpets, it is more efficient on low piles. The suction compensates for the missing motorized brush though. At the same time, it is long, sharp and easy to use in hardly accessible areas. The same goes for upholstery, yet most customers are happy with how the vacuum “behaves” on car seats.
While some people may take the missing motorized brush for a minus, the truth is that it adds to the overall maintenance. From this point of view, keeping this vacuum in a perfect shape is an easy job. The power does not fade away either. If you run out of battery, the unit will keep providing power until it is dead. Most other cleaners in market tend to lose power little by little. They increasingly become completely worthless, even if they are still in operation. Recharging this cleaning tool takes about 4 hours, but it depends on how drained the battery is. Sometimes, it might take less than 2 hours. It runs continuously for about 20 to 30 minutes if fully charged.
The CHV1410L cordless cleaner has a foldable brush tool. The crevice tool also adds to its efficiency in tight areas. It goes perfectly under the furniture or between chairs. Emptying the dirt cup implies pressing two levers at the same time. The filter is reusable and split in two parts – one for fine dust and another one for crumbs and pet hair.
- Good suction power despite the small battery

- Cyclonic action to disturb the stubborn dust and dirt
- Easy maintenance

In the end, Black & Decker CHV1410L Cordless Dust Buster Hand Vac does stand up in the crowd. From many points of view, it looks like it has spotted the cons in the competition and has focused on fixing them. It is excellent for household uses, as well as car cleaning operations. It makes a perfect addition if you have kids and pets around.
