Pros - Lithium battery, good power, lots of attachments, fits the hand nicely. Cons - Abysmal instructions, attachments are a nuisance to change, rubber handle is a magnet for clippings! For many years I've used Remington trimmers. They do a good job and are a snap to use. When my last one died there was none in stock anywhere. Decided to try the Wahl primarily because of the Lithium Ion battery. In my experience the battery is always the first thing to go on a rechargeable trimmer. The Li-ion battery should solve this problem. The Wahl does a good job but requires several attachment changes. They are a little "fiddley" to get on and off. Sometimes they can be downright exasperating. That said, there are several really nice things about the Wahl. It come with 3 "clipper" heads. The medium size is the most useful for me. The small one is great for trimming around nose and ears. It is almost surgical in its precision. (You could perform Uncle Buck's "surgery" on a gnat with this little baby!) One thing that's really neat is the little shaver head. It does a great job; just don't expect to shave with it. It would take forever. But, it is super for final grooming on the ears. (Only old guys understand why this is desireable.) One thing that is disappointing is the "6 in one" attachment for variable trim length. Good idea, just doesn't work very well. It's hard to get on and darn near impossible to get off. And the adjustment doesn't work worth a flip. I finally gave up on using it. Fortunately there are several fixed heads that work quite well. Another reviewer mentioned that clippings stick to the black rubber grips. Do they ever! My beard is white and they show up something terrible. If there is justice, the idiot at Wahl who approved these things will spend eternity cleaning them. Bottom line - this is a good trimmer at a reasonable price. Other brands would have tacked on another $10 to $20 for the Li-ion. Wahl chose not to and I like that. This trimmer takes longer to use because of the attachment changes but will give a superior trim once you figure out the best way to use it.
I purchased this trimmer for professional use, as I am a hair stylist for 20 years. This trimmer is a powerhouse, with a solid interchangeable blade and quick recharge. Its great that it can be used with/without electric. Only 4 stars because I have not charged it often enough to have a subjective opinion about its battery. Great price and quick Walmart shipping.
I have owned this model now over a month. I have owned several brands most have been cheaper in price but none better in quality. I have charged it once out of the package for the recomended hour charge and the dang thing is still going strong. I have used this numerous times including the shaving head a couple times and every other day on the trimmer attachments. Some complain about the rubber grip on the sides collecting beard shavings but a small price to pay for an excellent rechargable trimmer. Oh yea has more attachments than I will ever use. Would reccomend to anyone looking for a new trimmer. Ps. buy online and ship to site it is cheaper than store stock!!!!!
I bought this for my husband who shaves his head as his previous shaver just died. I figured it would work decently enough but I was AMAZED at how close of a shave it was able give him. I don't think he has used all of the attachments yet, but he keeps saying how great of a shaver this is. Thanks!
I shave my head and have tried all kinds of shavers ! IF you will take the time to learn to use this shaver and shave aginst the garin of the hair it will shave closer than the expensive blades !Very well made high power motor and easy to use ! It works just as well on your face and the trimmer attachements work great also . If you a nit picker about a little noise when the shaver heads is on then that might be a nit for you ! But for the job it does a tiny bit a noise is NBD . Iam just a plain customer no one special and I highly recomend this trimmer shaver specialy if you shave your head it can not be beat at aany price .
if you have a husband or friend in the military that pays to have their the shaven then buy this it is the best product if you just want to shave it all off
. I had an earlier model by Wahl that was much the same; the interchangeable cutters and combs fit either one, in fact. Best feature, I found, is the addition of a wider trimmer head that does much better on my moustache and hairline on my neck. Only needed replacement because I had damaged the main trimmer head on the old one through neglect (not oiling), and being too rough when attaching the plastic combs over the trimmer head; you can break a trimmer "tooth" if you do this with the motor running, and you'll likeley chew up the plastic comb to some extent. Don't be afraid to buy it. Wahl makes good stuff. Takes only a short time to re-charge, once you've exhausted the battery. Lithium-Ion technology assures a long-lasting charge, too. Dot com buying with warehouse to store will save you substantially. If there's a weak point at all, it is the storage tray for the device and all the attachments. Getting them all in place was a challenge that I soon gave up on, (as with the older model, too) and elected instead to put everything in a simple tray that keeps it all at the ready. Trying to use the provided tray is the reason for 4 stars instead of 5 on "ease of use". :)
Very nice looking, VERY well made and works like a charm. Very easy to use. This is the best one on the market. Would buy again.
I have only owned two trimmers in my life, this being the second one, and it is way better than the first I owned. The battery life on the trimmer is very long. I have never had the the trimmer die while I was using, and it does not run on batteries. Another thing I like about it is the rubber grip, so your hands can be wet and the trimmer won't flying out of your hands. On the down side changing the heads on the trimmer is a little difficult when you first get it, and be careful with them too. I dropped one of the heads 2-3 feet and it broke. Otherwise you get what you pay for with this trimmer without busting your budget. I would strongly recommend this for anyone going into beauty/barber school, any college student, or generally anyone needing a trimmer.
Have uesed this trimmer serveral times a week for the last year, and loved it, would have recommended it in a heartbeat, up until now. It just stopped working, no warning, no slow death, just stopped. Was great up until this point, but I was execting it to last more than one year.

WAHL 17-Piece Lithium Ion All-In-One Trimmer, Model 9854-600 Always post the product title and model # so they cannot post your review on other items. I know stores and manufactures do that. The Wahl 9854-600 has an awesome packaging and look. After opening you have to charge for a day or (16 hrs). It is a smooth running unit. FYI Lithion Ion batteries DIE when they get low. They will be 100% power then dead. Not like other battery technology that slows down so you know to get another battery Lithion Ion dies immediately. You cannot take the battery out of the Wahl 9854-600 so yes another (16 hrs.) or a little less and you are back in business. I was able to get 1.5 month of use and then no work. There is no charging light or indication that the Wahl 9854 is fully charged. Wahl makes great trimmers but quality is going away. I would not recommend this trimmer.
I bought this for my husband, to replace his older broken one. He loves this one. Its wireless, which is very convenient. It trims, cuts, shaves and does general clean up very well. He was a little concerned that it was smaller than his old one, but it works twice as good. Highly recommended
It lasted a month on first charge then it died and won't come back on. I have tried charging it several times over the last few days. Most expensive desposable trimmer I ve ever bought!
This product is very versatile and can be used for all personal grooming needs. I'm in the United States Armed Forces and I absolutely love this product. It has everything I need. It's perfect.
The first time I used this shaver, I thought, 'Wow, this thing cuts like a hot knife through butter!' A year later and it still cuts wonderfully. I charge it maybe once every six weeks, and I shave one a day to once every other day, so the Ion battery is no joke. When #if# my shaver ever dies, at this price I will buy another one in a heartbeat. I have absolutely nothing negative to say about this shaver. Buy it!
Excellent double shaving head. More power than you'd expect in a battery shaver. Difficult to judge which plastic trimmer you might use, however, and attachment of these to shaver not the most robust. But it was what I needed for trimming my beard/mustache.
As the manual stated you will have an 5oclock shadow, but most important knock on wood no razor bumps.
does everything a Italian needs in a trimmer. i have thick facial hair an this little guy cuts it like nothing!! lots of power! just a great Trimmer!
This is the battery chemistry which is by far the most durable and resilient on the market!! If the product does not include a Li-ion chemistry battery, I do not purchase. Leave the alkaline, NiCad (Nickle Cadmium), and NiMH (Nickle Metal Hydride) alone!! I am an Amateur Radio Operator and have been using DC voltage for some 45yrs. now. All three of my smaller HT's (Handy Talkies) have Li-ion batteries. And, this unit has a high quality "FEEL" to it, also. Just be very cautious with exchanging the the different heads on and off the unit. Many movable plastic parts in this area! Be gentle and enjoy! "MERRY CHRISTMAS"
