Decent enough groomer, the rest of the kit is poor.
19 December 2017
I bought this hoping for something portable and of the quality of the Wahl 'Super Taper' mains clippers, which are excellent, but I'm slightly disappointed.
The groomer itself is solidly built and the cutting heads are good (once you work out precisely how to attach and detach them safely). It's considerably more powerful than the weedy rechargeable Philips 'OneBlade' (but considerably less powerful than the Wahl 'Super Taper' clippers). However, the rest of the kit seems cheap and poorly made.
The nose & ear hair trimmer is possibly the most ticklish thing I've used and isn't very effective, but the narrow and wide hair cutters are quite effective cutting hair. The shaving attachment will get you down to a fine stubble, given enough patience, but isn't really a substitute for a proper shaver.
The stand is just a curved piece of metal with a hole in it for the groomer. The charger is separate wall-wart with an old-fashioned mini-connector. To charge the groomer on the stand, you must thread the cable & connector underneath the stand and plug it in - you can't just drop the groomer into the stand to charge. There's a cheap bag with two zipped compartments, but it's not big enough to fit the groomer, charger, and all the cutters & combs, and it's very flimsy.
The overall impression is that the engineering team designed the groomer and the marketing and sales team did the rest on a minimal budget. I expected a bit more for the money.
