    Going on 4 years old, and still going strong
    I really do like this vacuum. When the screens and filters are kept clean, it really does the job well. I have not had an issue with the batteries losing efficiency, but I know it will happen at some point. It's been my go-to handheld for everything. I would love to see B&D produce a version of this vacuum that could be used with the 20v batteries I have for my DeWalt tools ( I know that they're the same company) or 20v B&D tools. I also have the 36v B&D blower & edger, but I think those batteries might be a bit overkill and make the product too heavy. But, being able to swap batteries on the fly would be a huge plus!

    Best 'Dustbuster' I've ever owned/used.


    Once the batteries (NiCad) are shot, the game is over. Would like to see a 'bare tool' version which has the ability to use the same batteries as the 20v B&D or DeWalt tools.

    The most suction and length of charge I have ever found in a portable hand vac.
    I have had hand vacs before but I never could vacuum with those over about 10 minutes before they ran out of charge. The charge on this vac will last me 20 minutes or more which is great. I would recommend this to anyone and would also recommend that you never buy a hand vac with less than 18 Volts. Anything less is just too whimpy. This one is also a snap to empty and no messing around with bags. It was a birthday gift from my daughter who also has one and loves hers...she has 3 kids and two cats! You won't regret buying this one.

    The length of charge.


    Can't think of anything.

    Utter piece of crap with antiquated batteries! DO NOT BUY!
    Uses rechargeable NiCd (Nickle Cadmium) batteries which are notoriously bad for holding a charge as well as the troublesome "charge memory" (Google it for an explanation if you need it). Why more modern and reliable NiMH or LI-ON batteries were not used is beyond comprehension. My battery pack crapped out after less than three months. A replacement costs almost as much as buying a new PivotVac! How do you spell "planned obsolescence"? Also the battery pack is fairly difficult for the average user to remove. Most of these are going to end up in a landfill somewhere. Way to go, Black & Decker!

    At this point, nothing!


    Not a "green" product. Bad batteries that are hard & expensive to replace!

    Horrible Charge!
    I have never posted a review before, but I am so upset at the performance of the Pivot Vac that I had to say something. Maybe my review will help others from making the same mistake I did by buying this heavy paper weight. I was disappointed to see that it had to charge for 24 hours before I could use it. I was excited about using it right out of the box, but I didn't. I plugged it in and waited the recommended 24 hours. At first it worked GREAT. I was a bit heavy but the suction made it so worth the weight. But after vacuuming the baseboard in one bedroom and the stairs (a total of about 5 or 6 minutes) the power in the motor went down so much that it could barely pick up anything. This is going back to the store if Black&Decker Customer service doesn't provide a fix.

    Fantastic suction when the vacuum is fully charged.


    A full charge only lasts 5-6 minutes and once the charge starts to go down it goes down very quickly. The poor battery life seriously limits this items potential.

    My Charger doesn't work as well!
    Use the Vac almost a year and the charger connector to the vac starting to act inconsistent (based on the blue light). The connector is not well made. At first I thought the vac connector is bad but after I borrow my friend's connector, the blue light is one just fine. Time to call customer service or return the product to Target for new one (glad I bought the target warranty)...don't want to deal with B&D's customer service...

    powerful vac, portable, easy to clean


    bad quality charger connector, short batt. life about 5-6mins, loud noise, no adapter for tie space, limited color

    My charger isn't working either
    My Pivot Vac 18V cordless power cord has quit working. I e-mailed Black & Decker, but have not heard back from them. I expected them to send me a new power cord. I've always thought highly of Black & Decker, but am now re-evaluating how I feel about them.

    It was great for small clean-ups


    Now that I am unable to find a replacement power cord & read that I can't change the battery myself, it's become apparent that this is a throw away hand vac. $60 is a bit much since the power cord only worked for 6 months. I'll be looking at other manufactures & will not be wasting my money on throw away Black & Decker products.

    Impossible to replace battery.
    We had to throw it away after one year.

    It was powerful.


    We bought it from Sears, but they won't service it. The instructions for replacing the battery was not helpful. After much persistence I finally reached the battery only to find the positive end soldered to the wiring. The closest service dealer is 20 miles away even though we live in a major metropolis. The cost of driving, paying repair labor and then the NiCd battery would be more than buying a different hand van. So now it rests in our trash can.

    Charger Stinks
    THe vacuum is okay. In fact, this is the second one I have owned. Why? Because the charger on first one broke. And now the charger onthe second one has stopped working. And, after extensive searching, I have not been able to find this charger for sale. I strongly recommend NOT buying this product.

    When charger works, the product works well.

    Great except for shocks...
    I recently bought this after reading ratings at various websites and forums. I've not been able to try all features because I'm receiving countless shocks in my hand holding the Vac. I've emailed B&D to see if this is a common problem but its unusuble at this time unless I want to use rubber gloves I suppose. Very weird.

    Great suction.


    Shocks during use.
