I live in a small country house and in these settings a lightweight portable device like this would be a great tool.
For less than 5 poundsThis broom is light enough to carry around but has enough suction to clean it properly.
It also comes with a new Lithium-ion battery which means it will last longer and maintain a charge better.
Another major improvement is that this one has a rubber flap that prevents dirt from falling back out of the trash—another issue the old axle had.
So, Black + Decker thank you for listening to your customers.

What do you expect from the Black + Decker BDH2000PL?
The biggest improvement Black and Decker has made with this model is the lithium-ion battery which differs from each other when compared to a nickel-cadmium battery.
NiCad batteries suffer from what you call memory loss. This means that if you don’t do this for a few days, it needs to be recharged which opens up a whole other issue. It will need about half a day to fully charge.
The lithium-ion battery eliminates this problem. Recharging only takes a few hours. Just leave it in the charging base and whenever you need to use it, pick it up clean and put it back in. There is almost no risk of overcharging due to the intelligent charging system.
There is also constant power throughout the charge cycle and less power fade unlike older NiCad which fades slowly.
Attachments and accessories
It doesn’t have any attachments at all. All tools are built into the device. It comes with a charging base that was not present on the previous model.
I couldn’t find any documentation on how long you need to ship this. But one consumer said you’ll need to charge it for 24 hours the first time you use it.
Subsequent charges will require approximately two hours. It has an LED indicator that will stop flashing when the battery is fully charged.
Consumers were pleased with how easy this was to clean. The main reason is that the dirt cup is removable and washable which makes cleaning much easier.
the show length
Not a lot of comments about runtime based on reviews, but based on a few I collected you will get about 15 minutes on a full charge, but remember that since this uses a lithium-ion battery, the power of the lithium-ion battery will be constant and will only keep fading out when it is The battery is nearly empty.
It comes with a 2-year warranty on the vacuum cleaner and battery.
Watch it in action
Amazon review shows the differences between the old hub and the BDH2000PL…
Here is a video talking about the features and a short demo on how to clean this lightweight portable device…
bare floor performance
Keep in mind that this vacuum cleaner is best used as a spot-cleaning tool in small, isolated areas. You cannot use this to clean the entire kitchen floor or dining room.
The retractable brush tool will work great when cleaning dusty areas. The crevice tool will extend the reach a few inches but you still have to bend over to clean the stain areas.
It has just enough power to clean surface dirt on carpet. Don’t expect this to deep clean carpets or upholstery because it lacks a motorized brush.
The 35 watts of power clicked 7 is more than the 28 watts of air that the Dyson DC59 has in normal mode.
For a hand broom, this is exceptional power.
Pet hair removal
He’ll be able to remove pet hair on hard floors but on carpet, all bets are off.
It does not contain the pet hair applicator that can agitate and loosen the pet hair on the upholstery and carpet, so it only relies on suction.
You can try using the retractable brush tool for stirring, but it won’t be as effective as a motorized brush or pet hair tool.
Also because the nozzle is narrow, brushing a lot of pet hair with this can clog it and fill the cup with dirt very quickly, although it will work to some extent on hard surfaces and upholstery.
Consumers haven’t been successful in removing pet hair on the carpet, so if you have a lot of pets at home, consider something like the BDH2000FL instead.

This is a relatively new product on the market so there are only a few reviews but these reviews are all positive!
Lots of people who have bought this broom have used the hub as well and have been amazed at the performance.
They said that the suction power “doubled” and that the suction corresponded to minimal fade. Many consumers have used this inside their cars and have been happy with the results.
Black and Decker seem to listen to all the negative feedback that Pivot has given and have done well for those with this model.
Apart from the battery which is also improved Put these features:
- Flap inside the nozzle prevents debris from falling out
- The charging base allows you to store this vacuum cleaner vertically, thus reducing storage space
- Removable dirt cup makes cleaning and emptying easier
Kudos to Black and Decker for doing this and it costs less than $80, add to that a two-year warranty, and you’ve got a deal.
Update (July 31, 2014)
As of this update, nearly 100 people have left a review on Amazon alone and it looks like Black & Decker has a winner for this product.
The compact design with powerful suction and lithium batteries is popular with consumers.
The foldable nozzle, although eye-catching to some, has proven to work in cleaning the high areas above your head.
The 20V lithium battery is not as prone to fading as older NiCad batteries and charges in just 2 hours.
This would be a good vacuum to use in cars due to the compact design of the nozzle and the presence of the brush tool. Some consumers have commented that the runtime is more than enough to clean the entire car.
Where can I buy this?
You can buy this on Amazon for less than $60 and it will be eligible for free 2-day shipping if you join Prime.
Extended warranties are also available for up to 3 years if you want that extra peace of mind.
This would be great for apartment or cottage owners who need a vacuum cleaner that can clean areas that the vacuum cleaner might struggle with.
Areas such as vents, ceiling fans, and cabinets. Black + Decker truly listened to its customers when designing this vacuum and made several major improvements that bridged the weaknesses of the previous model.
With a new lithium battery, this new vacuum cleaner will maintain its suction throughout the charge cycle and will have less fade.
Large hand sweeper for small to medium sized homes for spot cleaning.
If you have a lot of pets, I wouldn’t be able to recommend this to you because it doesn’t have a pet hair attachment that makes this process effective.
It will still be able to absorb pet hair but too much of it will quickly fill the dirt basket.
Also, you won’t be able to use this to remove pet hair on a medium to curvy rug.
This vacuum would be most appropriate to complement the stick vacuum.
