BLACK+DECKER SMARTECH™ Cordless Lithium 2-IN-1 Stick Vacuum

No Mess, No Stress

When using the new 2-In-1 Stick vacuum for the first time, I really enjoyed it's slick design and how lightweight it felt.  It's compact, and I wasn't tethered to or bothered by any cords.  I like it's ability to tell you how much battery remains while you are cleaning.  This feature is called BATTERYSENSE™.  This let me know when I needed to recharge.

Another thing I loved about this vacuum was it's AUTOSENSE™ ability.  This feature helps automatically adjust the suction from bare floors to thick carpets.  It also has a POWERBOOST button that gives you that little extra oomph you might need to get those small particles!  It also has FILTERSENSE™ that alerts you when it's time to clean the filter.

The hand-vac is perfect for cleaning those hard to reach places.  I have a large aquarium, and it was perfect for reaching underneath where dust bunnies like to make a home.  It's nooks and crannies that always tend to slip my mind until after company has come over!  The hand-vac is also very good at cleaning curtains and dusty lamp shades.  It has different speeds, so the low speed works well when cleaning linens.

Detachable brush bar

The SMARTECH™ Hand-Vac has a detachable brush bar that is easy to clean in between uses.  It also features a built-in extendable crevice tool that makes you feel like Stretch Armstrong while cleaning! This was probably one of the most useful features for me.  It helped me reach all the dust that collects at the top of shelves and spider webs attached to my curtain rods.

This BLACK+DECKER SMARTECH™ Cordless Lithium 2-In-1 Stick Vacuum is definitely a must-have! It's easy to use and self-standing design keeps the vacuum upright.  It's pivot steering makes it a cinch to maneuver around furniture.

    My studio is constantly getting dirty floors from me going in and out. This little unit would be perfect to keep it tidier and not take up very much space.

    I need to look into one of these! I have a little girl who is constantly spilling things! We also don’t have the biggest house with the most space. So the sleek design would be awesome! So pretty too! Haha.

    I would LOVE LOVE LOVE to have one of these for my home. I have 2 dogs and 2 little kids so you can only imagine what I find under the tables and couches. This would really come in handy rather than have the drag out the big vac all of the time!

    I do like the idea of a cordless vacuum! I’m glad there is an alternative to the Dyson as I’m not the biggest fan of their products for the money.

    A good vacuum is SO important! The battery sense feature would be really helpful. I like that you can detach the hand vac for hard to read places. Great, thorough review! Thanks!

    I love this kind of vacuum as I have a similar vacuum, but a different brand. It’s light and clean better. Love all the features of BLACK+DECKER SMARTECH™ vacuum, especially the power boost.

    My parents recently when from tile to wood floors and I swear I notice the dust and dog hair more. I was just thinking about how it would be nice to have a small vacuum to pick up the mess easier. This might be just the one they need.

    We have one of those large, corded beasts. Don’t get me wrong, it does the job pretty well, but steps are a headache. Not to mention, it’s one of the bag types, so if you suck up something that you didn’t mean too.. Oh, the mess you make retrieving. This would be nice for the kids’ areas to save the Legos, treasures, etc.
