It doesn't seem like Black and Decker is trying to market this handheld vacuum as a pet-hair or pet-mess vacuum.  But most folks seem to be using it for just that.  Whether it's cleaning specific spots or pieces of furniture from pet hair and pet mess .. or cleaning up tracked litter from a litter box, the CHV1410L is a worth competitor to any handheld vacuum cleaner.

And because the CHV1410L is a powered by a Lithium Ion battery, it shoudl charge fast, produce plenty of power and should not develop the same kind of battery memory that other battery types do.
