Black & Decker SVFV3250L Ora Review – Combining an Upright Vacuum Cleaner With a Convenience of a Compact

The Black & Decker SVFV3250L Ora is the company’s flagship cordless vacuum cleaner. It delivers the power that is found in an upright model with the portability of a handheld one. It sports a massive 32.4v battery and a 12-cyclone bagless suction along with Black & Decker’s Optimized Runtime and Airflow (ORA). The SVFV3250L promises to deliver big power with a run-time of up to 25-minutes.

The Black & Decker SVFV3250L Ora Provides Compact and Power in One Package

Aside from its other properties, the Black & Decker SVFV3250L Ora is incredibly light for its size. It weighs less than 4-kilograms and there is a removable handheld unit that is supplied with a range of tools. This handheld model can cover anything from dusting corners to hard-to-reach nooks and crannies to remove the smallest of pet hair from thick upholstery.

Straight out of its package, the SVFV3250L Ora is a stick vacuum cleaner. This is a cleaner that is top-of-the-range when it comes to ORA cordless cleaners and it is quite easy to maneuver upright. It has an eye-catching design, and it even has some rather funky lighting effects.

Using the SVFV3250L, users will find that its light weight is no joke. It even feels incredibly balanced to use with one hand. However, it feels less powerful than the company’s HVFE2150L ORA. There is a motorized brush bar on its main floor-head. This is switchable from the handle and the device promises to have a serious carpet cleaning functionality as well.

However, the advertized power may only be on paper as the neat design makes for a subpar performance where it counts the most. It does steer nicely and it is still quite easy to use, but as far as power goes, its competitors can easily beat this model.

Here’s an example as to how this vacuum cleaner can deliver; imagine this – if you spread oats and porridge over a tiled floor and start the cleaner, some of the flakes that did get sucked up into the pipe will drop out of the head a few seconds later.

Ultimately, the Black & Decker SVFV3250L Ora is an easy-to-use vacuum cleaner but it is a device that may need more time in QA. It does combine stick and handheld cleaners into one versatile package, and it does have a good run-time and a lot of great tools on offer, but sadly this does not have the suction power you might expect it to have.
