Question about Black & Decker V4810 DustBuster Bagless Handheld Vacuum
Hi there. I bought a used Dustbuster v4810. It was fine for about a month, but now the battery isn't holding a charge. It poops out after about 15 seconds! Looking online, I see that many others have had the same problem, even after keeping the unit charged all the time, as their manual recommends. (And, since mine was sitting in a store for who knows how long, mine was NOT charged continuously.) I realized I needed a new battery, but as many online users predicted, I can't find a replacement battery! Do you have any suggestions about where I can find one? Or should I not waste my money and just get a different, better model?

this will probably be hard to find and you will see that it may also be cheaper to just pick up a new one. a batt pack will most likely be $25 to $30. when its such a throw away society many companies dont put out much for replacement parts.

First make sure it's not the wall charger - use a meter or a flashlight bulb to test the 15 or so volts that should be on the contacts when the charger is plugged in but the unit is detached.
The next thing is to remove the filters and see how easily the "fan" spins - use a popsickle stick or something that won't break the plastic fan if you can't get your fingers on it. Tight bearings may indicate clogged with dust (or corrosion) or destroyed. Free bearings likely indicate a switch or battery problem (good motor.)

You can test the output of the charger with a multimeter. Set it at about the 20v scale and touch the contacts at point where it connects with the Dustbuster. If you get a reading it means that the charger is working. I would say that the charger is most likely not working because LED indicators very seldom fail while chargers are not all that reliable.
