Love this well built long lasting little unit
I really like this VS VSM837A - its easily maneuverable with one hand, lasts for ages and ages, solid inbuilt fixed rechargeable battery stIll going well after numerous years. You can plug in the 3V power chord as on option if the rechargeable battery is near flat - works well as the cable is very light. It cuts close enough to look almost like a razor shave. The only accessory I use is the nose hair trimmer (does a professional job - go lightly). I am thinking I might now need a new cutting head as I use it every day (will shortly see if you can buy one from VS). Anyway, you won't go wrong - love it!
the guides slip easily, useless for cutting around the head
Bought at David Jones on special, replacing another brand clipper with a terrible battery. On paper this clipper looked great. The guides (for selecting length) really let it down. They're plastic with a plastic friction tab, and unfortunately even the slightest pressure causes the guide to move. it's simply bad design which was clearly never actually tested by anyone.
You start with (say) a 6 and by the time you've got around the back of your head it's already slipped to 2. Otherwise it seems like an ok clipper. I used the stubble guide which...has a different length mechanism and it's fine. You do need to charge it for 16 hours before first use, and according to the instructions it needs to cycle 3 times before you actually get full power. Wouldn't recommend.
Purchased in at David Jones Retail Stores for $49.
Great shaver and trimmer
Great price for a waterproof quality trimmer with many options, this is our second shaver from this company in my family, first one was for my son (Beard trimmer), totally satisfied with the performance. Definitely recommend this.
Best trim for a bargain price!
Purchased the trimmer from Big W 2 years ago and it's still going strong! Been a great shaver for tidying up the neck hairs, chest hairs and any other region you may need to tame! Works well as a wet shaver (use shaving cream to help with the cut) then simply wash the cutting heads, dry and put back on charge! I recently purchased a brand new one as I used the old one twice a week and the cut is awesome! Worth every part of $49! Don't waste your money on the more expansive ones when this is equally as good, if not better!

I brought my Vs Sassoon All body Rounder VSM837A a few days ago at Big W, Can't Fault, love the cut and how sensitive it is below and above the belt region, it's light weight and love how it's water proof, and the pricing is affordable can't fault.

Good all round performance - like the name suggests
Have been using this for a few a little over a year now. As I work away, a few months ago I bought another one to leave at work, so I would have to say I am pretty happy with them.
Use for both body hair and beard trimming. I usually keep a very short length, and these give a nice even cut and are easy to maneuver. I have used the length attachments to trim up my sideburns are they seem to stay in place, I had an old pair where these would easily fall off and cause a divot in my hair :(
I use both in and out of the shower and have not notice...
Questions & Answers
What type of rechargeable batteries are installed
You likely do not need the answer now - but the rechargeable battery is solid and built in (not loose rechargeable batteries you can change). Mine has been going for ages (years) and I use it everyday...to shave off facial beard hair, Once charged it lasts about 14 days). It takes abour 12 hours to fully recharge, but you can do 30min charges to get you by for a couple of days or better just plug in the 3v power lead
VSM837A not clear how to put drops of oil onto reservoir pad. Is there more info than fig 3 I the tool tips?
I just run a little along the blades while it is running... seems to do the job
I have never oiled the trimmer blades - I just pop the head off by pushing in the white button at rear (lifting up firmly with a bit of a twist back and forth at same time and it pops off). The main p...roblem is it accumulates tiny bits of hair and beard inside the head, slowing it down and it simply needs a wash under the tap with warm water and perhaps a digging brush with an old toothbrush.
