Poor battery life
on February 6, 2012
I purchased the trimmer about three months ago and use it every 5-7 days to trim my beard down low. I liked the feel of the device, and also the power settings. I was also excited about being able to travel with the trimmer and just charge it from my laptop without needing to carry yet another charger cable and plug.
However, the trimmer has two major flaws:
1. Very poor battery life. To clarify, after just a few short months the trimmer will not hold enough charge to perform a single shave of a few days beard growth. The device says the the battery is full when started but I imagine that it is not holding more than 20% of its original capacity.
2. Difficult to clean. The trimmer guard can be removed with a little force but obviously is not designed to be. Unfortunately, that is by far the easiest way to clean it, otherwise hair gets caught between the guard and the blades fairly quickly and is difficult to remove.
Overall, I'm not impressed with this trimmer and will be looking for a replacement.
