Easy, quick and as good as a paid haircut.

published

Bought one today, gave it a whirl and very happy. Easy to use, don't think you can go too wrong. Got extra warranty for battery through TheGoodGuys just in case.

Purchased in January 2021 for $99.00.

Battery is rubbish

published

Doesn't take long for the battery to die completely. Considering it's supposed to be cordless. Waste of time and money for a very expensive product like this . Don't bother getting one

Battery Issues!

published

I have been using this for about 18 months and now the battery has stopped working and will not hold charge. As others have said, it is great whilst it works! Will not purchase another Remington product due to this. Avoid buying.

Purchased at Harvey Norman for $99.00.

Love the clippers but battery has failed so 1 star because apparently unable to replace it

published

I’ve loved these clippers for the past year or two but now the battery has failed (while cutting our little boy’s hair during Covid19 lockdown!) and won’t even work while plugged in, which makes no sense to me. I’ve read that it’s close to impossible to replace the battery yourself (which is unforgivable for any manufacturer) so it means my clippers are dead. I will never buy Remington again because of this. very disappointed.

Purchased at Shaver Shop Physical store.

Does what I need

published

Great product to replace my Wahl clippers. I only use it once every two weeks, essentially as balding clippers without any guard attachment. It gets the job done much quicker than the Wahl, due to the large, curved cutting area. Cutting power and battery life is sufficient for me, but I am not using the clippers often or with long, or thick hair.
Love that fact that it is cordless

Purchased in January 2019 at Myer Retail Stores for $63.00.

Won’t hold charge

published

This could have been the best shaver I ever owned. The thing cuts flawlessly when it’s working! However, the battery is complete rubbish and for me I cannot buy a third one after two duds. My second dud will only run at full speed with the metal blade housing removed.

Really disappointed because as I said this was a fantastic shaver when it worked.

Purchased in December 2018 for $79.00.

Very poor battery

published

As a hair clipper I like it. However it has only light use and the battery is no longer holding a charge, the only way it can be used is with the cord. To replace the battery is almost mission impossible, the whole unit has to be disassembled. If Remington put in such a poor battery at least it should be user replaceable...but no. I see from other reviews that the battery is a common problem. It is a breach of trust for Remington to sell a cordless product that does not last, and the battery is not economically replaceable.

Save time and money for going to the barbers.

published

bought it from shavershop. was looking at the VS crewcut and thought it would only work on perfect round head otherwise it will leave patches. bought the remington and had my first haircut in the shower. vola! looks like a professional cut in the mirror. So easy!

oh don't forget to buy one of the clipper spray and apply everytime after the shave.

This little beast is near perfect

published

For a fully portable hair clipper, this little Remington Rapid Cut is a ripper. It's super fast, clean, efficient and it's a reasonable priced item in comparison. Did my aged father's hair on a six and adjusted lower for sideburns and back of the neck. So easy to use... would definitely recommend this unit, no qualms.

The best by far

published

I have had this shaver for 18m now and it hasn't missed a beat. I shave my head and it has cut down shave time from 15 min on my old shaver to now 5 mins. Still plenty of charge after all this time. I use it once or twice a week. When the battery packs it in I won't hesitate to buy another. I hope Remington keep making it, I would buy a second now just in case they delete the line but for the fact the battery won't last.

Pretty bloody great

published

I'm balding. I used a wired Wahl professional set of clippers forany years for a #2 all over. It did alright but never that consistent and the cable was in the way.

This thing is gold! Cuts evenly and close to the head, it's quick and waterproof. I use it in the shower now so no cleanup when doing regular cleanups. It's not that good for beards, but then again that's not what I bought it for. I use it weekly.

Really happy with it. Highly recommend if you just do an all over short cut.

Fast ,easy super charge

published

I bought this more than a year ago . Still going great. The charger got short circuited and shaver shop replaced it with no Q asked . Pretty happy with this product . I mostly use this for body hairs , The pointy curved edges can give you small scratched but then again its made for head not for body . Still v satisfied with this product thanks

Great product

published

I have used my clippers for about 2 months now and used them every Friday to do my head and face except my goatee. Takes 50-60 seconds maximum. They are just brilliant!! They are so good we bought a set for the father in law for his birthday. He said they are the best gift he has ever got (absolutely loves them). In fact he is 73 and has arthritis and said that they are easier to hold than the conventional corded clippers he used to use. He threw the others out. Well done Remington.

doesn't last long

Bought this as a gift last year and after half a dozen haircuts it no longer works, won't hold a charge and for the price, I thought it would last a fair bit longer ( I paid $99) ... okay for convenience while it lasts I s'pose

not a good start

published

After buying this product we were disappointed to find that they would not cut properly right away and that the blades had to be realigned first. After realigning the blades the product worked reasonably well.

Questions & Answers

Geoff R.

Geoff R.asked

Assuming one has appropriate technical ability and the right tools,
is it possible for the user to obtain new batteries, and remove/replace
defunct ones for the Remington Rapid Cut? Or will Remington replace
old batteries through their after sales services?

Remington don't want to know you for repairs as this is a sealed unit. I did get a replacement so both cutters make one good one. Next step if necessary will be to open it up, and assuming it's a 12v feed, just hook up an old 240-12v transformer to do the job instead of relying on the batteries.

Is the latest version Remington Rapid Cut Turbo hair trimmer waterproof ie is it able to be used under the shower

Geoff R.
Geoff R.

I'd be guessing it's more than likely it would be described as water
"resistant" rather than waterproof. It cab be run under the tap for
cleaning, but I wouldn't feel safe immersing it completely under water.
Under the shower should be okay.
