The Bottom Line:

The Black & Decker PHV1810 Hand Vac is strong and helpful around the house. It's a convenient tool to have.


I recently received a  Black & Decker PHV1810 Bag-less Handheld Vacuum in the mail as a prize on Epinions in one of their promotions. I promptly opened the box and presented it to my wife as a birthday gift. The kind Mrs laughed it off and I opened the box for myself.

I have had Black&Decker Hand vacuums in the past but this one was quite different. It's a 18v Cordless Vac that is noted on the box as "Our Most Powerful Hand vac EVER."

Different from past, long nosed hand vacs is a pivoting front nozzle. When the nozzle is folded under the body of the vac it makes for a compact machine when in storage and charging. The back of the nozzle that sits under th motor's body area is flat making the vacuum well balanced.

A push of a nicely positioned "thumb" button allows the nozzle to fold out from underneath into a number of positions It can be straight out at 200 degrees from the folded position or folded in to 90 degrees or forty five or whatever.

The front nozzle has a built in, slide out crevice tool that is part of the machine. There are no extra parts. The crevice tool is joined by a flip up dusting brush that works well when in use as a pull position. 

Better Than The Old Design?

Though I had other versions of the B&D hand vac I did not have the pioneer model of this one that came out in 2008. I read about that one, the PHV1800 on the new box of the PHV1810. It noted, "New and Improved Design. Same Superior Suction.

The text read The 18v Pivoting Vac first came to markett in 2008 and impressed people with its superior, long lasting suction power. Now with a new and improved design this vac is more compact, quieter and easier to clean up after, yet still hails as our most powerful hand vacuum ever!

I can't compare it to an older version but I can tell you how it worked for me.

pops experience with the Black & Decker 18v Pivot Vac
PHV1810

I liked the way the vacuum folds under itself and also the small power cord for recharging. The vacuum is heavy to the hand but I suppose its the battery weight that is needed to pac the suction power this vac offers. It is strong!.

Cleaning out the machine is easy enough. The cup catching area is clear so you see the dirt. A push of a button releases a flip out section allowing the dirt to be dumped.This is a dirty function because the dust and grime is loose. It must be poured out of the dirt reservoir. That said, it's very quick and easy to do.

Another latch releases the filter side. A swing out ring that allows the filter to be pulled out sticks and is not easy to grasp.

Circulating air does go through a triple filtration system so that helps keep the air clean. I thought it clean. There wasn't a burst of dust upon starting the vacuum either. That's good. Some vacs I have owned did send a puff of air back into the room upon turning it on.

The vaccuum has immediate power that excells but it loses power after ten minutes of work. Yes, this is designed for quick pick-ups but there were a few times I had to ditch it for my canister vac. It takes a couple of hours for a partial charge but it's important to give this a good solid overnight charge when the battery power is depleted.

I found this vacuum perfect for cleaning around my "dirty bird" parakeet that messes up his cage and the area around it with spent shells from seeds.It's also perfect on the oak stairwell in the back of my hoiuse that has three landings. It gets the broad open areas and the corners very well. I'm happy to have it plugged in nearby my desk. It's a good looking vac and doesn't take much storage room.

I can recommend this as a good hand vacuum for small specialty jobs that need a lot of power.
