the all-new 20V MAX* Platinum lithium vacuum series. This elegantly designed
performance line raises the bar for what shoppers can expect from a hand vac.
The Platinum series vacuums with
Signature ID feature lithium technology, giving users strong suction for the
duration of the battery charge and long battery life year after year. The powerful, lightweight units each hold a charge up
to 18 months. Thanks to Black & Decker’s SmartCharge system, battery
charging is digitally managed, eliminating memory effect.
20V MAX* Platinum series places consumers at the intersection of luxury and
style with a premium vacuum series,” said Austin Wilcox, product manager, Black

products maintain strong suction over long runtimes, allowing users to tackle
