Wasted my time picking this up with site to store because it incorrectly advertises \"Requires 1 AA battery (not included)\" when in fact it takes 4 (FOUR) batteries to operate.\n\nSo it gets a 1-star rating due to Walmart's incorrect description.

So far so good...
So far this has been the best 'Rechargable' trimmer I have owed so far (my 2nd Whal). The power on it is perfect for me because I trim my only beard and I keep my head hair trimmed all the way down to the stubs. I do not have a full head of thick hair so I can't say how it will perform for thicker haired people, however I believe it will do just fine. I did try another Whal trimmer set that I bought in the store, non-rechargable, which I liked. This had more power due to it be an Ac trimmer, it also came with a small two AA battery operated trimmer which was nice, but this was more than I needed power wise: Plus I did not want to deal with the two AA batteries.\n\nThis unit also came with a small bonus trimmer that operated on just one AA battery. I was impressed of its power, it had more power the the AA unit. It really gives a close trim as well, I only wish that this little unit came with it own attachments - because it does not. All in all this is a great product and if you perfer rechargable units then just spend the extra cash, you will be happier in the long run. I do suggest you do some research first and compare the trimmers features to your own grooming style and needs...\n\nOne more mention - Whal is a good brand so you can't go wrong here. I forgot to mention the blades - they do give me a nice clean and comfortable cut. I only use the smallest attachment (15mm) because that's my length preference. On previous units I have had attachments that are kind of pointed and scratch my head, but these ones are smoother and give a more comfortable trim. I have not had the unit long, only a couple of weeks so I can not talk about the battery and blade life of this unit. Based on what I have owned previously and my experience - I do trust that this Whal kit should last for five plus years - we'll see....
