But, there are a few negative points with these clippers:
-The rechargeable battery inside is not replaceable. The instructions for the clippers instruct you how to take the clipper apart, remove the battery and properly dispose of it. But there is no mention of a way to replace the battery, because the pack is soldered to the clippers.
-No charge indicator. My Philips Sonicare toothbrush has a handy lcd indicator to show me how much charge is left. There is nothing on the clippers to indicate charge status - not even a LED that changes color (like my gameboy has). And -- by the way, the manual cautions you against repeatedly charging the battery without periodically discharging it. Fortunately, you can use the clippers with the provided cord if the battery dies while cutting hair.
-Adjustable clipper length is a single piece of plastic that slides up and down on the cutter head to determine hair length. It works okay except for tight work (mustaches). The plastic looks like it would break into several pieces if you dropped the clippers.
The bottom line is the clippers work fine, and the light weight is a asset - but the lack of a battery indicator is a real drag, and the replaceable battery is unfortunate - from a potential landfill standpoint, but also from a frugality standpoint - throwing away a perfectly functioning item just because it needs a new battery.
In 2011 while I was in Canada I purchased this clipper at a drug store and it lasted me for three whole years until the battery died. This one lasted me a mere seven months. I feel robbed and extremely disappointed because I have been an Amazon buyer for many years and something like this had never happened to me. It made me wonder if Amazon have had these clippers stored for a long time and they are selling them even though they may not be able to guarantee that the clipper's battery is in brand new condition.
I will contact Amazon and try to get an explanation from them.
***** Update *****
So I was able to contact Amazon customer service tonight and they were very understanding! They basically acknowledged that it was unacceptable for this product to die in less than a year and offered me to either replace it or send a refund to my credit card. I chose the latter as I don't feel that I can trust this hair clipper again. Top customer service from Amazon and kudos to them for that. That's why I have been an Amazon customer for more than 15 years and will continue to be one for the rest of my life.
The materials and construction are overly cheap, in particular the black plastic housing the blade mechanism. It didn't take long before portions of it started breaking. The blades are barely mediocre, even for a $20 set of clippers. The teeth are small and the actuation design is too simplistic for consistent cuts. This translates into a mostly hollow business end and an annoying uneven weight distribution. The adjustable comb length is less of a convenience and more tedious compared to other Norelco's I've owned. The only reason for the 2nd star is a reasonable battery life.
If you are looking for an adjustable cordless clipper, I recommend shopping around and spending a little more.
