Time ot check out the product page

and

pretty good reviews (4.5 out of 5.0) over at homedepot.com and even better reviews (4.8 out of 5.0) over at walmart.com

I’ve had a model down from this one for the past year and a half or so, and I have to say, I’m pretty darn pleased.
It has good suction, is VERY easy to empty and clean, and hasn’t seemed to have lost any of its battery life so far.
I would buy this one, if it wasn’t for my existing one still working so well.

Can the charger be wall mounted?

One of the cons listed at the product page linked a few posts up said this:

One of the reviews I found:
[youtube=U6TpsCku9k4][/youtube]

[MOD: That’s the 1510, not the 1410. I don’t know the differences.]

I saw that, too. I wonder how this one compares to the one in the video being a 1410 instead of the 1510 shown.

It appears that the 1510 is $39.99 on Amazon with an original price of $69.99.The 1410L is $74.99 with an original price of $126. 00. So perhaps higher voltage isn’t newer or better? The ratings also seem to agree with that theory.

This model has a lithium ion battery, and is thus more stable in the long run than the 1510’s NiCad battery. The difference in voltage is pretty unnoticeable. The price increase is definitely worth it for something that’s probably going to be used a lot!

I, too, own this unit and I have to say it is the best I have ever owned.

The battery lasts a long time even off the charger, great suction and good handling all around.

Two issues worth noting…

  1. The “ejector” switch is RIGHT next to the power switch. Cannot be drunk or otherwise negligent turning this on or you will have a bigger mess than you bargained for. Maybe it’s just me?
  2. The recharger is like a plate that you set the unit ONto, on its heavy end. A little clumsy to get used to and no, can’t hang it. Again maybe a minor nit compared to great reliable function.

I have this model, and I have to say I love it. It makes quick clean-up tasks a breeze. I’ve used it for cleaning dirt/needles out of the car (I move a lot of plants). I use it for cleaning up those pine bits from pine kitty litter, I use it to clean up the occasional coffee or flour disaster in the kitchen… it’s really fantastic. Good, long battery life. Strong suction. Lightweight enough to hold easily. Stores mounted on the wall. You have to plug it in separately to charge (it’s not a charging mount), but I don’t find that a nuisance, as I don’t always keep it plugged in (did I mention the good battery life?). If I had a reason to buy another, I would. But it’s definitely highly recommended.

This item really sucks…but in a good way

I also have this vacuum, and I really like it. Much better than the Dyson handheld I had prior.

I’d say this is a good Woot.

How wide is the “wide mouth” on this? I don’t see anything in the specs. And for those who have it, would you recommend it for vacuuming carpeted stairs?

I actually have two of the CHV1410 vacs using the NiCad battery inside. Unfortunately the NiCad batteries just do not last that long after being used everyday. And being sealed inside once the batteries go then so does the vac in the trashcan. The Lithium battery in this model (CHV1410L) is worth it! I don’t know if it will handle charging up to 5 times more than the NiCad version like it claims…but even if it can charge twice as many times as the NiCad it is worth it!!

I get it!

How loud is this? Can I suck up wet things with it?

Pages 10-28 were incomprehensible. Found it has a soap and water washable cloth filter that should be replaced every 6-9 months or when damaged. Any owners know how durable it is?

I don’t have any experience with this one but I do have a Black and Decker battery powered stick vac. It works great and is at least 15 years old. It uses the separate tool batteries that have a separate wall charger which I’ve had to replace a few times.
