Features of the BLACK+DECKER HHVI315JO42
Lightweight and Portable
The lightweight and portable design of the BLACK+DECKER HHVI315JO42 dustbuster makes it easier for the unit to be carried around easily while vacuuming. It can be easily stored away and taken out whenever needed.
There are no cables, which means easy maneuvering of the unit with no plugging and lugging to adjust to your cleaning needs. The unit has a wide vacuum mouth that quickly scoops up large messes, ensuring the suction of larger pieces of dirt, debris, and household mess.
The use of lithium-ion batteries in vacuum cleaners have become popular over the last few years because they offer an extended battery life and can hold the charge very efficiently. These batteries weigh less and offer full suction power for the entire vacuuming time.
The BLACK & DECKER HHVI315JO42 makes use of lithium technology, giving you extended operating time and powerful suction.
Washable bowl and filter with an increased bowl capacity
The BLACK & DECKER HHVI315JO42 has a larger capacity bowl that can hold a large amount of dirt and debris. The easy-off washable bowl and filter can be removed and washed, thus ensuring thorough cleaning and optimum performance. The dirt bowl is translucent and bagless, making it easy to see dirt and also less time to empty it.
Crevice tool and brush
The HHVI315JO42 comes with a handy crevice tool that helps you efficiently clean narrow spaces, hard to reach areas such as tight corners, tight spots, the space between sofa cushions and more. For vacuuming upholstery, you have the upholstery brush that easily removes pet hair and other dirt and debris.
The BLACK+DECKER HHVI315JO42 dustbuster uses cyclonic technology, where the air that travels in the unit spins around in a spiral manner, much like a tornado or cyclone. This cyclonic motion causes the dirt and dust to settle at the bottom of the dirt bin, thus separating the dust from the flowing air. Not only does this technology provide powerful suction, but it also clears the air of allergens and dust particles.
Wall-mount for storage
For those who have limited storage area, the BLACK and DECKER Dustbuster HHVI315JO42 is a great choice as it comes with a wall-mount that allows you to conveniently store the vacuum cleaner without taking up any floor space.
The vacuum cleaner can be easily hung on the wall with the help of a fastener that comes with the package. The sleek and ergonomic design of the vacuum is both attractive and efficient for quick cleanups. The handle provides a comfortable grip and easy to use controls.
You’ll find two buttons on the handle – one for turning the unit ON and OFF and the other for detaching the dirt bowl. The unit is cordless, giving you more movement and freedom while vacuuming.
It is also a great option when you’re cleaning areas that don’t have a power socket. For those concerned about battery life, the HHVI315JO42 is a great option, because the lithium-ion batteries hold the charge for a longer amount of time.
As such, you can use the unit to get all your vacuuming done efficiently and effectively. Even though there is no charge indicator, it is okay to leave the unit on the charger, as it offers overcharge protection.
