TOWSON, MD (July 10, 2015) – BLACK+DECKER announces two new high-voltage, cordless stick vacuums – the 36V MAX* and 24V MAX* Lithium Stick Vacuums with ORA™ Technology. ORA, or Optimized Runtime & Airflow Technology, provides fade-free power and no loss of suction†. The 2-n-1 design allows each vac to function as an upright stick vacuum as well as a detachable hand vacuum, offering versatility and convenience for the homeowner.
With streamlined designs and the latest vacuum technology, the output of each new vac is maximized for serious power. The hand vac is the central component in each vacuum. It achieves 40 Air Watts max of power and incorporates a 12 Air-Cyclone System. These features capitalize on the power potential of the unit by helping to prevent material from clogging the unit and letting air flow freely through the cyclones, helping to maintain high performance throughout the cleaning task.
The new vacuums feature BLACK+DECKER’s Lithium Ion battery platform which offers strong suction and fade-free power, making runtime concerns a thing of the past. In addition to long battery life, the stick vacs perform well on fine dust, large debris and all floor types including wood, tile, and carpet. The removable hand vac and onboard crevice tool allow the vacs to reach tight spaces making them ideal for car cleanup, stair vacuuming, and more.
Both the 36V MAX* and the 24V MAX* vacs feature a wide floor head and a powered beater bar allowing them to cover wide swaths of floor and suck up unwanted dirt around the home. Additionally, the inconvenience of changing out messy bags is eliminated, as the vacs have easy-to-clean, removable and washable bowls and beater bars. Four LED lights on each vac make up a circular state-of-charge indicator which shows the level of charge remaining in an easy-to-read display. Each vacuum is operated via a comfortable on/off button.
Major differences between the two units include the self-standing feature that the 36V MAX* provides, so it is always at the ready and within reach. The 36V MAX* is charged via a docking station while the 24V MAX* is charged via wall mount. And finally, the 36V MAX* beater bar can be shut off to conserve battery power and extend runtime.
Whether it’s cleaning up after the kids, pets, or the standard dust and dirt, the 2-n-1 36V MAX* and 24V MAX* Stick Vacs with ORA Technology offer a powerful and convenient solution, allowing homeowners to complete their cleaning tasks quickly to make time for what’s important.
