Black + Decker Launches Smartech Vacuums

Black + Decker has launched a new series of lithium ion cordless stick and handheld vacuums featuring Smartech sensing functions.

According to the company, Smartech automates the brand’s vacuums with AutoSense, FilterSense and BatterySense, each of which streamline cleaning for the user.

The company said the AutoSense feature senses whether it’s cleaning hard surface floors or carpet and automatically adjusts its power level, aiding cleaning by boosting power as needed on high-pile carpet when using the stick vacuum. FilterSense alerts the user with an illuminated LED icon when the filter needs to be cleaned while BatterySense indicates how much battery remains with three white LED lights.

Smartech vacuums come in three configurations. The 2-in-1 cordless floor extension stick vacuum has a removable floor head that provides versatility while the 2-in-1 cordless stick vacuum has a self-standing design that keeps the vacuum upright and ready to use. Both configurations include a removable hand vacuum. The cordless lithium stick vacuums with Smartech have a suggested retail price ranging from $159 to $179.

The third unit is a cordless hand vacuum, which, in addition to the Smartech features, has a second speed option called PowerBoost. PowerBoost is said to increase suction power for difficult cleaning tasks, and can be turned down to standard mode when the user is cleaning more delicate areas such as curtains, linens or sheets. The cordless lithium hand vacuum with Smartech has a suggested retail price ranging from $79 to $99.

The new Black + Decker Smartech vacuums are available now in a variety of colors and include a two-year limited warranty.
