    Nice cut but slow charge

    This trimmer has a solid feel and is comfortable to hold. The motor is quiet and powerful enough to cut through my beard and hair without pulling. The guard is adjustable with the ring on the trimmer. The selection clicks are solid and sturdy. The guard pulls off the trimmer allowing close and detailed trimming. The head with the guard seems a bit wide and clunky but worked just fine. Cleaning up the unit is as simple as rinsing it off and letting it dry. The only downside to this trimmer is the charging block/plug. It is a one-piece unit that the trimmer snaps into and then the whole unit plugs into the wall. This is one of those ideas that sounds great on paper and in discussion but in execution is horrible. It takes both hands to snap the trimmer into the block. Then it takes up the whole plug. This setup also prohibits using the trimmer while it's charging/dead. It does snap in solid enough that it would charge upside down if your wall plug allows it. It is also small enough that it will travel easily. The instructions say it takes 15 hours to charge the trimmer, which in the age of quick charges is just excessive, especially when you have no other options. Additionally, this will only get you about 30 minutes of use, almost requiring it be kept on the charger, taking up valuable bathroom plug real estate. There is no indication on the trimmer of the level of charge and the red light on the charger glows anytime the unit is connected and plugged in so there is no way to know when it's fully charged. Pros: Strong quiet motor Adjustable guard ring and removable comb Wet/dry use Cons: Charger 15-hour charging time 30-minute run time No charge level/full charge indicator I love the way this trims and cuts but hate the charger and it is for this reason, I would have a difficult time recommending this unit to a friend. Update the charger to give 70 minutes run time with a one hour charge like some others and this trimmer would be hard to beat.

    No, I would not recommend this to a friend
