The Dirt Devil Extreme Power Hand Vac doesn't have a pivoting nozzle like the Black & Decker 18V Pivot Vac PHV1810 (*Est. $55) , but owners say its power outperforms other battery-powered hand vacs in this price range. Owners also appreciate the lightweight feel of this vacuum and the flip-down crevice tool. Dirt Devil's three-year warranty surpasses other brands. The only downsides noted by users are that the filter may need replacing after a year or so of use and that the battery life is short.
