9.5 Overall Score Reviewed By Experts

Featuring a unique longer reaching design, the 15.6 Volt cordless Black & Decker CHV1510 offers greater accessibility and less bending with a lightweight and portable construction that helps in quick cleanups. The slim rotating nozzles target dirt deep in tight locations while the crevice and brush tool located on board ensure you never lose them or misplace them. This vacuum cleaner comes with a wider nozzle to help capture larger particles and hence effectively clean spills and really dirty surfaces. It relies on a bagless Cyclonic technology that also ensures cleaner filters and a consistent performance for longer. The bagless dirt bowl is translucent helping to keep tab on its fullness. This B&D handheld vac uses a triple stage filtration mechanism that provides cleaner air exhaust and less clogging. It can be stored vertically, horizontally and mounted to the wall with a charging light that shows when the battery is charging. The B&D CHV1510 uses a 120 Volt battery charger.

Our Review:


The Black & Decker CHV1510 is a very well thought out machine. As a handheld I never expect such vacuum cleaners to totally clean out my carpet and neither should you. However, if you need a quick cleanup, say a bit of dirt and dust packed up well in a certain area then get this because it won’t stop until the last speck has been removed. Just don’t try to rub it into the carpet as if it were a sponge or scrubber, that won’t do any good. Just move it around as a wand and it will work just fine.

Bare Floors:

The same goes for bare floors too. The Black & Decker CHV1510 comes with a free brush head that can be locked into place when working with rugs or carpets and left free for bare floors. This forces it out of the way and hence helps protect smooth or laminated surfaces. I found it to be well adept at picking up loose items from the floor and if you aren’t careful it can even suck in nuts and bolts damaging the internal mechanism.

Hose Airflow Strength:

Rated as the best handheld by Consumer Reports, the Black & Decker CHV1510 has a phenomenal amount of hose airflow strength possible with a 15.6 Volt li-ion battery. This in itself speaks of all the possibilities it provides. Don’t believe me then try vacuuming your pet hair riddle furniture with this handheld for a few minutes and watch as it is transformed into brand new.

Ideally I would have given this handheld a 7 out of 10 star rating had it not been for its impressive power output. Because it has so much of power and weighs just under 5 pounds, it also makes a lot of noise for a handheld. Not exactly a lot to wake up your pet or your husband late in the night but enough to be annoying inside a car.

Ease Of Use:

Self capable, long 1 hour plus charge and ergonomically designed handles all work in making the B&D CHV1510 a breeze to use. Charging the battery, changing the cleaning head, working with dirty rugs, cleaning pet hair from your furniture, cleaning the dust canister, it is all super easy with this machine. Come to think of it, the less than $60 price tag actually is too cheap for its design and capabilities.

Pet Hair:

Pet hair is one particular area where it excels as a handheld. If you own an upright or canister vacuum that has a hard time getting deep into crevices, cracks or furniture corners then get this handheld as it can eliminate every last strand of pet hair from within your home if your larger vacuum cleaner fails to do so.


The Black & Decker CHV1510 is a highly adept handheld vacuum cleaner that will satisfy cleanliness freaks. I was totally impressed by its versatile nature capable of handling any and every kind of object in sight. Plenty of power, easy to use design and an awesome amount of suction gives this handheld a lot of credibility.
