BLACK+DECKER™ Debuts POWERSERIES™ Extreme™ Cordless Removable Battery Stick Vacuum

TOWSON, MD (October 16, 2019) – BLACK+DECKER announces the launch of the POWERSERIES Extreme Cordless Removable Battery Stick Vacuum. The POWERSERIES Extreme features up to 75 percent better pick up on carpet** with its all new 3X Cleaning System:

  1. The floorhead angle is designed to clean up messes across multiple surfaces, from hard floors, to area rugs, carpets and more;
  2. The V-shaped bristle pattern on the brush roll is designed to pick up messes of various sizes, including dust, crumbs, and hair; and an
  3. Anti-tangle brush bar is designed to minimize hair wrap and maximize suction power.

As the inventors of the first cordless hand vacuum, the dustbuster®, and the first cordless electric drill, at BLACK+DECKER we know cordless. The POWERSERIES Extreme is the first stick vacuum in BLACK+DECKER’s 20V MAX* removable battery system that includes lawn and garden equipment, power tools and home cleaning products. For added versatility, the removable battery allows for charging separately from the vacuum, or while connected, as the vacuum self-stands or can be placed on its included wall mount. The POWERSERIES Extreme features up to 55 minutes of runtime† to tackle messes throughout the home.

In addition, the stick vacuum has a built-in filter cleaner – just twist to clean – for twice the suctionβ and optimal performance, while the LED floorhead light brightens surfaces so dirt can’t hide. The front-facing dustbin allows the vacuum to lay flat, helping clean hard-to-reach areas and providing easy access for quick disposal of debris. Use the three-speed control to select the optimal power for cleaning hard surfaces, area rugs, or powerful pick up on carpet.

David Veprek, Vice President of Marketing said, “We’re proud of the BLACK+DECKER brand’s history in cordless leadership and thrilled to expand our 20V MAX* removable battery system to include a stick vacuum with POWERSERIES Extreme. Everything about this vacuum was created with customer needs top of mind. We’re confident the extreme performance, versatility, and convenience of this new stick vacuum will empower our customers to complete a multitude of tidying tasks easily and efficiently.”

The POWERSERIES Extreme suits a variety of needs and converts to a handheld vacuum for multiuse cleaning on stairs, furniture, hard-to-reach areas, and more. The vacuum also comes in a pet version, featuring an anti-tangle brush roll with rubberized bristles for pet specific messes and specialized attachments effectively vacuuming pet hair from upholstered furniture. The new POWERSERIES Extreme will be available October 2019, ranging in price from $179-$199 MSRP. More information on the POWERSERIES Extreme and other BLACK+DECKER products is available at
