Black And Decker FHV1200 Flex Vac Cordless Hand Vacuum Product Description
The Black And Decker FHV1200 Flex Vac is one of the most popular, if not the most popular, hand vacuum manufactured by Black and Decker. The main attraction: it’s cordless. No lugging around and managing the power cable. With the nice array of attachments as well as a 4 foot extendable hose you can clean the drapes, stairs, blinds, shelves, cushions, and more. Even includes pet hair cleaning attachment
For the engineering: features innovative design with high performance motor and Cyclonic suction action for long-lasting suction power. Dish-washer safe filters and an “Easy Empty” dirt canister that keeps your hands clean are more great features. Energy-star qualified. Black and Decker also claims a “3-stage filtration system” so the exhaust air blown out is nice and clean. All in all, this vacuum combines the convenience of a portable cordless hand vacuum with the power and versatility of a full size house vacuum.
Black And Decker FHV1200 Flex Vac PROS AND CONS
- Very strong power and suction, pet hair attachments works great
- Does everything a powerful house vacuum can do as advertised
- Dishwasher safe filter is a big bonus on savings. One reviewer writes they clean theirs in the dryer with no problems (and the dryer filter catches the dirt)
- Light and easy to carry. Easy to maneuver
- Cordless and strong suction also means short battery life (15 to 20 minutes reported by many owners). This vacuum is no different for charge life
- Longer charging time than most cordless (21 hours reported by some owners)
Most of the negative comments out there by owners deal with the charge time being long and the vacuum staying charged for only about 15 to 20 minutes. Most cordless vacuums will have long charge times and short vacuum times, but with a vacuum like this with more powerful suction that vacuum time will shorten.
That being said, for a small job where you want a powerful vacuum but only for a few minutes job, but not wheel and lug out the big vacuum, the Black And Decker FHV1200 Flex Vac is a great choice – it is a great substitute for the main big vacuum.
What Buyers Are Saying
“The Flex is really good for pet hair – and so easy to use on the stairs and in the car. So much better than any hand held I’ve ever used. Also ideal for quick little messes instead of getting out the full size vacuum…(READ MORE)”
“This little vacuum sounded great, especially since it carries a name I trust, but I wish I’d purchased something else. It’s great for quick jobs like crushed potato chips in the carpeting after family movie night or dust bunnies in-between my cabinets and my fridge, but its charge is unacceptably short. It’s lightweight and has good suction, but is almost useless to me when I can only use it for short bursts of cleaning… (READ MORE)”
“We got this Black & Decker compact vacuum cleaner more than a month ago and have been very happy with the quality, construction and performance of this little guy. As other reviewers said, this cordless vac must be recharged for about 20 hours after use. The charge lasts long enough to do those little cleanup chores around the house. It is light and easy to carry. The vac is bagless and easy to clean. I’ve had all sorts of cordless vacs and this is the best one yet…(READ MORE)”
