Black & Decker PHV1800CB 18-Volt Pivoting-Nose Cordless Energy-Star Handheld Vacuum Cleaner

We picked up the Black & Decker PHV1800CB 18-Volt Pivoting-Nose Cordless Energy-Star Handheld Vacuum Cleaner after reading a review in Popular Mechanics. I was disappointed from the start. First it leaks debris when folded, then it really does not have much capacity and finally the battery life was horrible.

I left it in the charger and though I could just bring it a long on trips to do quick cleanup but the battery would not last a few uses. Finally the battery just gave out and would not hold a charge at all. The worst part is how it spilled when it was closed. You are meant to close it to fit into the charger. But when you do close it the stuff you just picked up fell out. I just cannot recommend the Black & Decker PHV1800CB 18-Volt Pivoting-Nose Cordless Energy-Star Handheld Vacuum Cleaner.
