The Black and Decker pivot vac is one of the best handheld cordless vacuum cleaners available in the market. It has the versatility, flexibility and suction power that is idealized by any vacuum cleaner.

By Editorial Team | 8th July 2019

This lightweight handheld vacuum has a sleek appealing design with a classy black nozzle attached to a pivotal area and a transparent dirt cup. The pivot area allows the user to bend the nozzle both ways to allow users to reach tight and hard-to-clean spaces. It comes highly recommended by us and many other satisfied customers.


The unique foldable nozzle on the Black and Decker handheld vacuum grants unique movement far beyond the reach of other handheld vacuums. It can effectively remove dirt and debris from the furniture floor, car seats and other surfaces. On occasion, an average of six to nine passes is required for removing dirt from a household hard floor and carpet, which is similar to other handheld vacuums. However, it proved to be above average when removing animal hair and larger particles like sawdust, the Bdh2000pl vacuum comfortably removes up to 90% of dirt in car seats.

The Black and Decker pivot vac (“vacuum”) is fitted with a 35-watt air machine that uses cyclonic action technology to suck air into the device. This advanced machine is supported by a 20 volts Lithium Ion battery that powers the engine. The combination of the two features mentioned above results in formidable suction power, one of the strongest in the market.



First impressions of the Black and Decker pivot vacuum cleaner are favorable, particularly due to its sleek and luxurious appearance. The foldable nozzle is one of the greatest selling points of the Black and Decker pivot vac because it allows users to comfortably reach unusual places without having to stop and readjust the nozzle every time. In addition, because it is a relatively small product with size dimensions of 45.7 x 17.5 x 17.1 cm, it is easy to navigate and maneuver.

Accessories and Parts

This handheld vacuum comes with an inbuilt brush and crevice attachment that can be placed to the body of the nozzle, to prevent misplacement of the tools, which is quite common with small parts. The translucent dirt collector allows you to monitor when it is almost full. It is detachable and very easy to clean and re-attach back to the device.

The vacuum’s charging system can be mounted to the wall and only takes an impressive six minutes to fully charge! This is leaps and bounds better than what other batteries offer, some of which require 6+ hours to charge for a short time of activity. Users don’t have to worry about the battery being damaged by excessive power after being fully charged as the charging system stops charging automatically once the battery is full. The battery life is seventeen minutes of continuous and uninterrupted use.

Customer Support and Warranty

The support available at Black and Decker is impeccable. Their official website features an intricate FAQ page that discusses over a dozen topics, it covers the company’s range of products offered to the accessories, battery, and more. In addition, the product description pages are also quite comprehensive to ensure full information is passed to the consumers. 

Black and Decker offer a two-year warranty if their product becomes defective due to faulty materials or lack of conformity from the date of purchase. They guarantee to replace all defective parts or repair the product to minimize the inconvenience to the customer.


One of the features that make this product stand out from the competition is its suction power, this is due to the battery (20v) and the 35-amp motor. The product comes with a convenient foldable nozzle to help users reach and effectively clean tight crevices. One of its minor setbacks is when in use, the product is slightly noisy, so it may not be the ideal solution for people who prefer cleaning in silence. Nonetheless, it is a compact vacuum that can be mounted on the wall to save storage space in cluttered or overflowing cupboards. With these factors considered, this handheld vacuum is still an excellent choice that will guarantee great value for money.
