Great little product - exceeded expectations!
on 14 December 2009
I bought this expecting it to be nothing more than functional. I was expecting a short battery life, not very powerful, just enough to decide whether I wanted to push the boat out and buy a professional one.
Having lived with it for a couple of weeks, I really love it and have no need to buy a more expensive one now.
It does exactly what it says in the description (so I won't go into its features any more than to say the battery life is perfectly acceptable, only had to charge it once so far and I'm using it most days, and the power is absolutely fine - a lot more than I was expecting).
The only criticism is the slightly fiddly attachments and display stand it comes with.
If you're anything like me, you'll have one standard attachment you use - so that can just be left on the trimmer; but the stand it comes with is practically unuseable. Yes, I suppose it is possible to spend 2/3 minutes stacking all the bits into the little display stand, but simply picking one of the attachments out will topple over the entire thing.
That said, the easiest remedy is get one of those aftershave/travel bags you invariably get for Christmas, empty it out and use that to carry it in.
Would certainly buy another product from Wahl in the future (especially considering the fiddly display stand issue is so trivial).
