Black & Decker Smart Stand XL – Making Christmas Easier

Let me paint you a picture.  We all know that Christmas is a wonderful and joyful time of year.  I am lucky because I have the best wife in the world.  She pretty much does everything.  She shops for all the presents, decorates the house, the tree, bakes and even goes out and buys the tree.  My only responsibility is to cut the bottom of the tree and put it in the stand.  Simple enough, right?  Well as simple as it sounds, for some reason it turns into a pain.  I cut the tree and bring it into the...

Black & Decker Lawn Tools

I am not sure what you think of when you hear the name Black & Decker.  For me two things come to mind.  First is a company that has a long history of making products.  Second is the Dust Buster.  I remember those old Dust Busters. While they were a cool invention and meant you didn’t have to break out the vacuum, it would last for about two minutes.   Just enough time to pick up those 8 Cheerios.  Good thing battery technology has changed because now they are night and day.  Speaking of that, we will be having...

Before you read this article, please throw everything out the window of what your thoughts are on vacuums and sweepers.  You may remember the old Black & Decker Dust Busters.  At the time they were the cats meow and made life easier.  When you had those little clean up jobs and didn’t want to break out the vacuum, you could just grab the Dust Buster and do a quick clean up.  Since then times have changed.  Technology has gotten better and most importantly, battery technology.  We have moved into a new battery era with Lithium-ion battery technology.  With Lithium-ion...

Black and Decker Smart Tech Bluetooth Battery

Stanley Black and Decker is releasing a smart Bluetooth battery for the Black and Decker 20v battery platform. It looks to be the same idea as the Dewalt Bluetooth battery, but they added one really cool feature that the Dewalt battery does not have, which is a USB port on the top of the battery to charge your phone or other electronic devices. It will be a $20 premium over the other Black and Decker 20v batteries. I don’t know if the Bluetooth feature is worth the premium on a Black and Decker tool, but USB outlet looks to...

Black and Decker AutoSense – The Perfect Home Owner Drill

I know one of our contributors wrote this tool up a while back.   I liked it so much I wanted to write about it also.  When I first saw the AutoSense I thought it was a gimmick.  When I first used it, I was like WOW.  This is a really nice tool.  It has a has a powerful 20V max battery.  This drill rivals some Pro drill/drivers with its ergonomic grip that felt perfect in my hands.  20V power will feel like a formula one car to most home owners.  The tool weighs 3.7 lbs. The Auto Sense is just...
