    Battery life very short, also charger
    I use the battery with a line trimmer - got two batteries and charger with it. In only a year one battery started to last only 5 minutes. By three years then neither battery charged properly, and then charger failed. Probably only about 50-100 charges including when it didn't actually charge properly, so nowhere near 500. Now I have to either buy more rubbish batteries and charger which are expensive individually, or throw out line trimmer which I hate as is so wasteful.

    Relatively cheap when included with tool, works well to start with, is practical


    Useful lifespan of battery is about 1/10 company claim.

    Battery life is short
    Vac works very well but typical of many B&D products, the battery does not hold a charge long. I have a Makita battery powered drill that works harder and lasts forever.

    Cleans well

    I ahve many trees and at age 73 needed a light weight leaf blower/vac to clean off deck and drive. Love it but the battery only last 16 minutes.
    36V Lithium Hard Surface Sweeper Vac # LSWV36 with Battery #LBXR36

    Light weight and I can carry my Leaf vac outside without making me tired


    The battery only last 16 minutes. Not enough time for me to vac the deck or blow it off

    Worthless. Don't last.
    The batteries don't last and I have only charged them 50 times in the last year and a half.

    I don't because I own several BD products. The blower and tree trimmer and edger all work well but the batteries don't last long. Why don't they go to lithium batteries.


    Look at the pros. The batteries suck and so does customer support. I am very disappointed in Black and Decker.

    Batteries suck!
    Have 3 batteries and 2 chargers that came with chainsaw and trimmer. After 2 years, batteries are all useless - won't hold a charge. B&D basically says "suck it up and buy new batteries". Very poor support.

    Products work OK when brand new


    batteries are trash shortly after purchase. Very poor customer support.

    Very good product
    Bought this to replace an off brand 12 volt VSR and it is leaps above the old unit,

    Most everything, good balance for ease of handling only negative is the continued use of NI-CADs for power source in portable tools, NI-CADS must bee Discharged completely before Recharge or the Memory effect will only charge it to full, and thereafter the memory of the charge will only accept that same amount


    NI-CAD batteries, as NIMH or lithium-ion are easily available

    Overrated battery life
    I recently bought the weed-eater and blower combo. Charged the batteries for more than ten hours. I used the edger feature first and the battery died less than 30 mins. I switched to the other battery for the blower and it died as well in less than 15 mins of usage. Recharged them again overnight and this morning tried to use them and again less than 30mins both died out.

    Easy to snap in and take out of the edger and blower.


    No long battery life! Need to work on extending the 18v battery life for longer use.

    So far totally satisfied
    Just bought this new 1.5 18 volt battery for a replacement to my Pole Saw, the original battery did ok but finally stopped working, so after asking B&D for some info bought this upgraded one, what a difference, I just cut down a dead tree about 25/30 ft tall and a good 5" in diameter, whizzed right through it and still had enough power left to cut almost all of it in 2' pieces.

    As mentioned, lots of power (whole lot more than original) battery

    Great idea, weak execution
    18 V weed wacker uses batteries too quickly, barely 15 minutes.

    Lack of cord makes remote usage easy.


    Batteries run down too quickly. For the cost it is a major disappointment, I have 3 batteries but will be using the corded model for work around the house!
