Small and Lightweight

It is a small handheld vacuum that weighs only about 3 lbs. Being so extremely lightweight, you can easily carry it around the house for cleaning all the bits of debris and dirt scattered around the house. Since it is small, it is convenient to carry it on the stairs, outside to the garage and for cleaning your car seats.

Its small design makes it convenient to store in your cupboard, either horizontally or vertically or even mount it on the wall.

15.6 V Lithium Ion Battery

The B&D DustBuster comes with a Nickel Cadmium 15.6V battery that provides a long runtime of 20 – 40 minutes. Though its Nickel battery takes a long time to charge and may fade over time, it won’t be a big issue as you will be using it small cleanups. The manufacturer recommends keeping this vacuum plugged in at all times so it is ready to use whenever you need it. In case the battery fades, you are protected with a 2 year warranty on battery and charger.

Rotating Nozzle

A handheld vacuum should be all about convenience and ease of use. This is what B&D DustBuster provides that is, utmost convenience. It includes a rotating nozzle that rotates 90 degrees in either direction and makes it easy to clean hard to reach areas and corners without straining your wrist.


The B&D DustBuster comes with a pull out crevice tool and a foldable brush tool. The crevice tool is especially helpful when you are cleaning in tight spaces like under the fridge, under furniture or under car seats. The brush tool helps to pick up most dirt and pet hair off carpets and upholstery.

Wide Nozzle

The wide nozzle of the DustBuster can suck off larger pieces of debris and hence, is great for small cleaning tasks.


The B&D DustBuster is highly recommended if you want a small handheld vacuum for doing quick cleanups after your children or pet mess around the house. However, unlike other cordless vacuums like the Hoover Linx Stick Vacuum and the Shark Navigator Freestyle, this one cannot deep clean carpets and floors and so cannot replace your big vacuum. It is best as a second small handheld vacuum to have in your home. As far as performance is concerned, it will surprise you with its strong suction power and excellent performance.

Given its price, which is very reasonable under $50, it is no doubt a best-buy.
