March 2015 - The main purpose of my original review in 2012 was to warn buyers that the clipper is quite small, it fits into a palm. Dimension wise, length is around 10.5 cm with a blade width of 2.5 cm (compare this to full sized Wahl clippers of 17.5 cm length and 4.5 cm blade width). This means the clippers must make several more motions than usual to shave off the equivalent amount of hair.
Pros: Cheap - a bargain at around 10 quid when purchased in 2011 Comes in a grooming kit with a nice zip up pouch containing other useful items Portable, battery operated
Cons: The adjustable telescopic attachment tends to slip to shorter lengths while in use. Sometimes it detaches off completely if pressed too hard against the skin. The blade width is narrow as mentioned These two points above mean it does take practice to get used to the clippers The nasal hair trimmer included require a to and fro motion, different to other nasal trimmers I have used.. but a better nasal trimmer may be supplied now
At around 4 years ownership, having used the item literally around 10-15 times, the clipper now no longer works. Despite not working anymore and the dexterity issues concerning the size of the clipper and the slippery telescopic comb, it is still a bargain considering the kit it comes with, and the convenience of portability.
