The power of lithium and a body of steel.
This new, deluxe multi-purpose tool defies the laws of grooming by delivering advanced lithium ion performance in an high tech design, fulfilling the unmet need for one tool with the power to shave, cut, trim and detail. It’s Lithium Ion 2.0 technology, which delivers unprecedented run time and power, is complemented by Wahl’s patented blade design and a series of heads and guide combs that allow guys to groom it all, from head to toe.
At the heart of the new Deluxe Groomer is its powerful Lithium Ion 2.0 technology, which provides up to four hours of run time, twice the torque and a one-minute quick charge for three-minutes of use.

The body is solid and heavy, much heavier than I had expected. I don't know if it's just that solidly made or if they have added weights, but when you pick it up, you'll know you're holding a very solid object. That's not a negative, the weight actually makes it a bit easier to control in delicate trimming situations.
The blades are also very sharp. You could cut yourself if you use it without a guard. After 7 months of daily use, they remain as sharp as they were.
The lithium battery is great. NEVER get anything else. I've recharged this razor twice since I bought it, and once was just to be sure because it had been a long time and I was going on a trip. It doesn't suffer from power fade and it stays charged. In a way, that's a problem, because it goes full throttle until it literally stops. Literally. The charge LED does blink to let you know when it needs charging, but the charge lasts so long that you just don't notice it. That one qualifies as a first world problem - my trimmer charge lasts too long.
Please note: the description reads (or at least did read) that the unit includes the adjustable blade. That's incorrect. It includes just about every size and attachment you could ever want, but it doesn't include that accessory. For most guys, that's not a problem. It was for me, however. I called Wahl just to see if such an adjustable attachment was available. That's where they hooked me forever. Ok, first, when I called the 800 number, a human being answered. I know, right? An actual human being! And they were friendly!! I didn't know what to do. What button do you push to say hello?Read more ›
This American made, yes - American made trimmer , has a solid, stainless steel body that feels heavy, in a good way. Unlike the Wahl "All-In-One Lithium Ion"'s blades, the 9818 blades are stainless steel - keeping them rust resistant and much sharper, especially the T-blade. The new rotary nose trimmer cuts closer without the ingrown hairs caused by its predecessor.
The shaver has a single, thinner foil, reducing potential blind spots, making it more accurate for lining and tapering. The motor is relatively quiet, yet consistently powered.
For the holder, Wahl has replaced the impractical, all-inclusive blade and shaver rack stand with a singular, molded, piece of frosted plastic for a base - which has the exclusivity of a plastic water bottle but - IT WORKS, as I actually use it. The shaver fits snugly, and takes up little space near the sink, without the clutter.
Now for some of the drawbacks:
The shaver cannot be used while charging - not a big deal as the led light flashes when the battery is low, there is a "quick charge", and the battery, well fully charged - lasts relatively long.
The blades, while sharper, still will not give you that clean type of lining you'll get from a barbershop type trimmer without multiple attempts. The adjustable blade guide could have been more precise for stubble length.
Overall - still a good effort by Wahl. Hopefully, it will send a message that amid the sea of mediocrity in men's trimmers, many men will spend a few dollars more for a well designed and better made trimmer.
After having it for a while, I noticed that the standard clipper head was missing a couple of teeth. Figuring I dropped it or something, I called Wahl to order a replacement. The replacement was $10, but they insisted on sending one out for free.
Now that is what I call good customer service.
Update on replacement;
The replacement unit sent from Wahl worked perfectly. Wahl's customer service is very impressive. I expected nothing from them, yet they insisted in sending me a new trimmer. I would recommend this product, if you have issues, they will stand behind it.
Thank you Colleen and Wahl.
