There is a price to pay for this product. It's the noise. The vacuum is not quiet. This isn't a major fault, and we still rank this set of clippers at number 1.
This Lithium Ion Cordless Power clipper really performs. It has cordless power, a lithium ion battery and turbo boost. It comes with titanium blades and an adjustable comb for all the lengths you need.
Brilliant quality clippers and great value. The product is easy to use and great on all types of hair. We love the comb adjustment dial and turbo boost for thicker hair.
Although great for most of our reviewers, we did find that on very thick hair the product was a little too lightweight.
Really found this product great. As the only one in our top three to offer corded and cordless, you know you will always have the power you need with an easy to use and precision cutting set of clippers.
A great pair of clippers to use. Feel very lightweight yet powerful. The blades also stay sharp, so you have a powerful, easy to use set of clippers that will last with lengths from 1 to 8.
What you get all works brilliantly. It only lacks on accessories such as barber scissors and no taper control below 1.2mm
Although all three are great, the combination of a powerful engine, sharp blades and vacuum of the Remington just about edged this set of clippers into first place.
