Versapak dustbusters


Table of Contents
Accessories (may be supplied) (Fig. K)
Accessories, such as the crevice tool, brush and
extra VersaPak sticks can be purchased from any
Black & Decker service centre, either to fit into the
base of your product, or to replace existing worn or
damaged accessories.
To extend the effective usage time of your Dustbuster,
you can purchase extra VersaPak sticks.
If your unit has a white cap fitted over the left port then
use a small flat bladed screwdriver to remove it. An
extra VersaPak stick can then be inserted which
doubles the usage time.
The VersaPak system
The VersaPak stick(s) you are using with your Dustbuster is(are)
totally compatible with all other VersaPak products produced
by Black & Decker.
Inserting and removing the VersaPak stick
(Fig. L)
To remove the VersaPak stick, simply push the
release button (6) and pull it out.
To insert, simply push the VersaPak stick firmly into
place until an audible "click" is heard and the
VersaPak stick will not travel any further into the unit.
Do not worry, it is impossible to mis-assemble a
VersaPak stick into this unit and cause damage.

Rechargeable batteries and the environment

Black & Decker cordless products use nickel cadmium
(NiCad) batteries or battery packs which can be charged
many times to give long life and repeatedly full power.
This symbol indicates the NiCad batteries contained
within this unit must be disposed of properly and not
discarded in everyday household waste which may be
disposed of in an incinerator or landfill site.
NiCad batteries can be harmful to the environment and
can explode when exposed to fire. Do not incinerate.
Therefore, when your product or battery pack needs
replacing, think of the protection of our environment.
Black & Decker recommends the following:
Discharge batteries completely by running the unit
until the energy is completely discharged and then
remove from the product.
Take the VersaPak stick to a Black & Decker service
centre, your local dealer or your local recycling
station. If necessary, contact your local council for
disposal information. The collected batteries will be
disposed of properly and/or used for recycling
purposes whilst protecting the environment.
