The Black and Decker 15.6v Dust Buster is a great handheld vacuum to have anywhere in your home. It is lightweight, small, and includes 2 attachments and a wall mouting charging base.
The Dust Buster comes with 2 power levels, normal mode and a "super" mode for power cleaning. I have found the power mode useful for grabbing dust bunnies and other small particles from tight corners or areas that I cannot get the dust buster itself into - it pulls the dirt right intot he vacuum.
The Dust Buster comes with 2 attachments - a longer solid "nose" piece that extends the reach of the Dust Buster by about 3 inches, and an upholstry atachment with a brush head for "scrubbing" fabrics clean.
Maintenance of the Dust Buster is very east. All the dirt and debris it picks up is stored in the "nose" of the dust buster. To empty, you simply push a button on the top of the Dust Buster and fold the ose down - it comes off in a smooth motion that does not jar the dust out of the container before you are ready. The filter is also easy to clean - it just slides out and you give it a tap to clean it. It also has a rotating disc on the outside of the vacuum itself that you can rotate to clean off the filter while in use or between filter cleanings. The filter does not need to be tapped clean more than once a month depending on your level of use.
This is a fantastic tool to have for quick everyday cleaning, but is also powerful enough to handle pet hair on couches and dust trapped in hard to reach places. It rivals the power of an upright vacuum, but fits in the palm of your hand!
