Product Description

Manufacturer's Description

flexible hose
Flexible hose

Black & Decker Dustbuster Flexi Auto Hand Vac

This Black & Decker Dustbuster Flexi Auto Hand Vac is powered through a 12V DC outlet (for example a car cigarette lighter) for easy cleaning of the vehicle. The 5 metre long cable allows for easy reach to all areas of the vehicle, including the boot, and can be wrapped around the car vac before storing it away to save storage space.

Also included, the brush tool can clean awkward areas and tight spots, while the extra long crevice tool helps access the areas between car seats for a deep down clean. The cyclonic action spins dirt away from the filter and maintains optimum suction power and the double action filtration aims to give high performance for longer.

Powerful Cleaning

The Black & Decker Dustbuster Flexi comes integrated with a high performance motor in order to provide powerful cleaning performance and efficiency. As well as boasting a powerful performance, the Dustbuster Flexi is designed to be compact and lightweight. The motor is positioned inside the filter which ensures that the product is comfortable to hold and light enough to manoeuvre around during use.

Flexible Hose

The ‘wrap around’ hose is designed to offer a range of options for usage. To operate the vacuum like a traditional hand held unit, the user just leaves the hose and nozzle in the fixed position. But, for additional freedom of movement the user can unclip the nose piece in order to reach high or awkward areas. In addition, they can use the flip-out upholstery brush for additional dust removal on delicate surfaces like lampshades and curtains or the crevice tool for confined spaces such as between kitchen units or car foot wells.

Cyclonic Action and Triple Filtration

Cyclonic action and triple filtration allows the unit to be more efficient and maintain suction power for longer. The dust bowl window clearly shows when the unit requires emptying and the filter cleaning system means there is no need to remove the filter for cleaning. Build up of fine dust can be removed from around the filter with a couple of twists of the cleaning wheel avoiding any unnecessary mess when emptying the machine.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good, but beware.... 5 Nov 2009
By JayKay
These Black & Decker vacuum cleaners are very good but be aware that the 'Product Description' is just a little misleading.
The Description says "also for maximum flexibility to clean in hard to reach areas such as underneath cupboards, or on shelves overhead." - that is fine, but you would need a very long wire, as this version of the vacuum cleaner gets its power from the 'Cigarette Lighter Socket' of your car.

3.0 out of 5 stars Its ok... 21 April 2010
It is neat,but I would like more power, and the option to plug in at the mains, as opposed to using the cigarette lighter to power it. Otherwise its good at being portable, and getting into the crevices.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good car hoover 22 April 2010
By ph2009
This product does what it says and is a good light weight vacuum for cars. I did think of getting the re-chargeable one first but glad I didnt as all that charging time for 10 mins use and it took me 10 mins to give my car a good clean out. I recommend this as a good to have item, certainly saves getting the house vacuum out to the car and all the hassle of power leads. If you want a car vac, go for htis and get it from Amazon, good price and quick delivery.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not enough suction/power 15 April 2013
Verified Purchase
Rather disappointed with this to be honest. I called Black and Decker to ask for the name of their most powerful car vacuum, this was the item that they recommended yet it has virtually no power.

If you're looking for a car vacuum, don't bother with a 12v model, simple as that.

4.0 out of 5 stars Black & Decker PAD 1200 Car Vacuum 9 Aug 2011
This Car Vacuum is convenient and easy to use as is plugs straight into the cigarette lighter but hasn't got as much power as I would have liked. It's fine for upholstery but not so good at getting the floor mats cleaned.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good but lacking in power 17 Jun 2010
Verified Purchase
I have used the PAD1200 for the first time today. It is very neat, flexible and light for easy use but it is lacking in any real suction. For light dust it is adequate, but it did not have the power to remove hairs or anything that was attached to the car fabric. It would be very useful if it could be plugged into a mains socket for more power.

In a nutshell:-

Very well designed, small and compact
Comfortable to use
Tools change quickly and function well
Very easy to empty
Super long lead, ideal for car, caravan, boat etc.

Adequately powerful for small clean-ups. Suction power will depend on your battery condition and running the engine on idle can make an enormous difference (although I appreciate that it's not that eco friendly)

I still prefer to use a mains powered vacuum for vehicles (you can't touch a Dyson) but if mains is not available or you are travelling then this will take some beating

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent for the money 18 May 2012
Verified Purchase
I ordered this for my car, so I can give it a whizz where ever I am with little effort. It is a brilliant product for the price. I am sure more expensive versions have better suction power, but to be honest, it's not really needed (unless maybe you have a dog). It is light and surprisingly powerful considering it runs off the lighter in the car.

I am really pleased with it, having read the previous reviews I was slightly bothered it wouldn't do a good enough job, but I have been pleasantly surprised!

As a tip... Keep the brush on all the time, this loosens the dirt for it to be sucked up easily.

Nice product - surprisingly cleans up the car pretty well for the price. Will not remove hairs embedded in the carpet of your car though. You need a more powerful tool for that.
