From the Manufacturer
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 meter 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.
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.
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 tight or awkward areas. In addition, they can use the flip-out upholstery brush for additional dust removal on delicate surfaces like air vents or around switches on the dashboard.
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.

Let me set the scene first. My car was new, however I had broken some glass in my boot and pieces were lying around. Also I'd recently just gone to a close friend's Iranian wedding. And then after the wedding I had helped him take the extras back to his house. So there was a bit of mess in the back passenger side such as flower petals and some coloured powder I wasn't sure about!
So I turned my car on and plugged the handheld vacuum into the 12V socket in the car. This is such a big feature for me I cannot explain it in words. Not having to lug a long extension cord from my house to the car to power the vacuum - especially when you don't get a parking spot in front of your house is a big deal. And I can say yes this doesn't have the suction of a Dyson - but by God my car is now clean again! The glass in the boot was no problem - sucked up all the little pieces. The dust and flower petals in the back no problems with the correct tool - you get 2 different tools to make it easy to get all those hard spaces.
Now you have to remember it will take time and technique to get it clean so don't think it'll take 5 mins. You have to be patient and make sure you do it properly using the correct tool. And take some time to make it the best looking floor you can. Remember car carpet already makes it difficult to suck anything up as cr*p just seems to stick to it so easily.Read more ›
Now that's out of the way, my review is based on using this to vacuum my car using the cigarette lighter power source to do so. First tip is to use this with the engine on, it does increase suction by doing so but more importantly, you won't flatten your battery by having this and the interior lights on draining it. This really is a great car hoover, plenty of suction and easy to store away due to the size. I'd say I had an average amount of dirt in my car (stones and a bit of mud), which disappeared in next to no time using the long nozzle attachment. I find this device works better than the brush for really getting into the dirt that's built up in car mats and near accelerator pedals. It's also thin enough to fit beneath driver/passenger seats and sills, as well as other hard to reach areas.
The brush attachment is very useful for the dashboard and I found it less harsh on leather/alcantara than the nozzle attachment. The power lead wraps around the vacuum itself, as does the hose which also extends to a size that is perfectly fine for car vacuuming. A handy storage bag is included, which zips up and fits the tools in. If you have heavily soiled carpets/seats/mats, this vacuum won't remove that but no vacuum would I'm afraid - your carpets/seats/mats need professionally cleaning and you can then maintain that look with this device. Overall, possibly the best £40 I've spent on Amazon and wouldn't hesitate to recommend this.
Mine only arrived today but I couldn't help but give it a try. I must admit that I didn't have high hopes after having many car vacs in different guises over the years and finding most of them wouldn't suck the foam off my beer. I was very pleasantly surprised. I live in the depths of Pembrokeshire surrounded by fields and farm traffic and often drive my car in muddy wellies. Well, my car wasn't to bad today, just some dried mud and quite a bit of road grit plus the usual detritus trodden into a car. It sucked up the lot. Not with great ease like the Dyson, but it did it. I was surprised and pleased.
Overall the build quality is OK for something of this price range. Your not going to be handing it onto your grandkids but what do you expect for £30! One thing that I like about it is that for a change some thought has been given to the design as to regards end user convenience. Unlike the normal vacs that look like leaf blowers and are only good for doing large flat areas, this with its flexible tube, and interchangeable tools, can get into those awkward little spaces that usually end up looking like something from the bottom of a bin. Then you have a really practical cable tidy.The bin is easy to empty and the filters are simple to clean.
Like all gadgets that are this general price category it is far from perfect but for the price I am impressed and I can quite honestly say it is the first 12v vac I have found which seems reasonably adequate for the job.
