    Great unit but clean-out access door prone to breaking without very gentle handling. Without the door, vacuum is a paper-weight., June 9, 2015

    Except for one structural flaw, this was a good purchase and I’m glad we bought it. We use it every day to clean up cat litter and debris that the cats spread around, and for other light-duty clean-up. The battery charge duration is great, the unit seems to have great power and suction and it is hugely more convenient than dragging out the vacuum cleaner.

    HOWEVER – the hinge on the clean-out access door is woefully under designed. The small plastic pegs on the door that slot into the holes on the opposite side of the hinge of what Black and Decker calls the “Bowl & Nozzle” assembly have two very tiny connection points to the plastic door. After 10 months of daily use, the connection points evidently weakened and today when I opened the door to empty the debris, it came off in my hand. My wife and I have handled the vacuum with care, especially when taking it apart for cleaning, so I would assume that any rougher handling would have resulted in earlier failure.

    The Black and Decker parts website has the full “Bowl & Nozzle” assembly available (listed as “limited quantities available” – not sure what that means) for $17.33 + tax and econo shipping of $10.99. Its better than throwing away the whole thing and buying a new unit, but I’m pretty disappointed that an otherwise sturdy, reliable and useful device has this single point of weakness that, once it has failed, essentially makes the whole thing useless.

    I’m trying to repair the broken pegs with super-glue and the photo attached shows one peg reattached and the other awaiting glue.

    So, beware of this issue and handle the access door extremely gently or buy a second “Bowl & Nozzle” assembly for when the door breaks off.

    My original pivot vac will no longer keep a charge, and I’ve been looking for a decent replacement. Thank goodness that B&D finally came out with this lithium powered model! It has the rubber flap to keep debris from falling back out, and a charging stand that automatically makes contact and can be wall mounted. It is more powerful, runs much longer, all while being smaller & lighter. The brush pivots up when needed and is never lost. A nice feature is that it comes apart for easy cleaning. Overall a super unit, it wins over the Dyson and Hoover and Shark, by far.

    Update: Evidently you can replace the battery pack, when needed. Two screws hold on the side cover, and then the battery pack plugs in. Great improvement over earlier models!

    Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What’s this?)
    I was very impressed when I first reviewed this product back in April of 2014 and for good reason. There are several design features that are quite positive. When it worked it did a better job than any of the cheap “dustbusters” … maybe not in the league of a Dyson or Hoover but considering the price I liked it.

    Then one day while it was still within the warranty period it just stopped dead. I thought that was unusual, because one of the main features (so I though) was the Lithium Ion battery which supposedly has a longer expected useful life than NiCad batteries. I checked the voltage on the charger unit to make sure it hadn’t failed but it was providing exactly the right amount of power to the vacuum. I checked the terminals on the vacuum itself, and they were clean. But it simply would not take a charge. Then I smelled a burnt odor coming from the battery compartment. That was the problem – the battery essentially started on fire and “exploded” inside (fortunately no one was using the vacuum at the time so there were no injuries). I was concerned but I felt confident Black+Decker would be eager to help.

    So I contacted Black+Decker’s customer service and received an immediate confirmation email with a case number and was advised a rep would contact me within 24 business hours. Days went by and I didn’t hear anything so I sent a follow-up including my case number. Black+Decker responded 11 days later with a new and different case number but ignored my first inquiry. I tried again and they ignored me. I never could get them to even reply to me and eventually the warranty ran out and the chance of ever getting the vacuum repaired evaporated.

    Now recently there is non-stop news about a certain cell phone with an exploding Lithium Ion battery that is killing people, burning down buildings and even being banned by the airlines. I was lucky my vacuum’s battery didn’t cause any serious harm but I think what could have happened if I had not been at home and unplugged it before anything happened.

    Whether this is a well-designed vacuum with cool features or not is no longer the point. There are plenty of positive (and negative) reviews about features. Now this vacuum has two significant strikes against it … a potentially hazardous battery and a company that ignored the problem. I will be reporting it to the proper authorities in case a recall is needed but I CANNOT recommend this product and until Black+Decker publicly addresses the issue I had with the battery I would hope Amazon pulls it from their listing.
