The Black+Decker BDH2020FLFH Max Lithium Flex Vacuum Cleaner ($79) wins in two categories. 1) It is currently one of the best battery operated handheld vacuums and 2) it has one of the worst names. With that said, I have renamed my new handheld vacuum. It is now affectionately known as “Flex Armstrong”.
The Black+Decker BDH2020FLFH is powered by a 20v lithium ion battery, has an easy to empty dirt bin, comes with a stick vac floor extension, pet brush, 2-in-1 nozzle/brush tool, crevice tool, and a 4-hour charging station.
Finally a cordless vacuum that does it all; from floor to ceiling and everything in between, the 20V MAX* Lithium Flex Vacs with Floor Head offers limitless versatility. Choose between the four foot extendable hose, the new stick vac attachment with pivoting floor head, or the Pet Brush attachment. Having an optional stick vac attachment makes this the ultimate in portable and multi-functional vacuuming. No longer just a simple hand-carried vacuum, the Flex Vacs provide easy clean-up; high or low, in the house or car, and on any floor surface – wood, tile, carpet, rugs, etc. The compact design and lightweight yet powerful 20V MAX* lithium ion battery, makes it easy to take the Flex straight to the mess.
