I have had Wahl in the past and been happy but this latest Lithium Ion clippers are just rubbish, takes up to an hour to complete haircut, the old corded model were far better but got old so I thought I would update, what a mistake, will not buy Wahl again they are rubbish.
Never buy wahl products.you gonna waste your hard earned money.
I bought wahl hair clipper ($80) from shavershop Melton. Was looking quite good and solid but Quality was so bad when I used it. Next day went back to shop replaced with expensive model. It was again wahl product($150)I chose. I tried at home. It was looking solid but with vibration one part of clipper just came off and fell on the floor than again I went back to shop to replace it and again same thing happened with third one. Was so angry and disappointed with wahl clippers. Then I end up buying VS clipper. Same price($150) but 1000 times better than wahl clipper and more warranty. I am loving VS clipper no issues at all.
Broke a few months out of warranty
I liked this trimmer while it worked. After about 2.5 years of normal use (6 months out of warranty) the on/off switch became flaky, and a few months later stopped working at all. I have bought a replacement from another brand at 1/3 the price and double the warranty.
Purchased in October 2016 for $189.00.
Works ok as a beard trimmer but not as good as my Remington barbers pro for cutting your hair. The attachments also seem a bit flimsy.
What you are paying for with this model is the lithium ion battery which is suppose to last 4 hours of run time, but the battery light was flashing after about an hour of use so it's pretty hopeless.
The actual shaver itself does feel quite solid though, only used it once so not sure about longevity of it yet, will see how it goes.
It says made in america, but with parts made in China which is a little disappointing.
Purchased in August 2019 for $180.00.
I have bought shavers and toothbrushes from Shaver Shop in the past, so went in seeking advice on a beard trimmer. The sales guy (who had a beard!) recommended the Wahl. On first use, I found it didn’t trim my hair neatly, and snatched at the hairs a bit. Then the spring in the cutter broke, a common fault in these trimmers according to reviews here. So, that’s the last time I shop at Shaver Shop. The Wahl is now sitting in a drawer unused. I’ve now gone the proven route for a replacement, internet search plus looking here, then ordering online.

Really bad product
I asked for this for Christmas but didn't actually receive it until beginning of February. It lasted two months (so maybe eight uses in total) before it started making a rattling sound, I removed the head and found a broken spring inside. Took it to the shop and got a replacement, got that home and it wouldn't charge up! Got a full refund now looking on this site for better options. Can't believe this has such a high price tags and reading all these terrible reviews that don't surprise me at all.
Terrible product considering the Price!
Just got wahl stainless steel lithium ion for my birthday (which i requested). Was using it for the first time, gave it a rinse, but then the power would not switch off! I had to plug the little plastic pin in the charger hole for the trimmer to stop. Even though it stopped, when trying to change the head to another blade, it was switched on again on its own, and I could have cut myself. And the plastics accessories are of so cheap quality that you wonder why you pay that much! A $50 trimmer is way better than this. Will try to return this product.

Pricey, difficult to clean, and dies eventually
I've had my Wahl for around three years. I'm not a heavy user - probably clean the fuzz up every two weeks or so. It's solid and looks better than the usual plastic, but as other reviewers have noted, the looks are deceptive. The adjustable trim attachment was the first to go - it became useless on all but the closest setting. And every now and then it came off the head completely mid-trim. I've had intermittent charging issues over the last year or so, and eventually ended with a dead shaver. I'm not sure whether it's the battery, the charger,...or the trimmer itself. Compared to new model trimmers, cleaning is difficult - you can't wash it, so it's a case of disassembling and fiddling about with little brushes. I'm changing to a different brand for a replacement, which is always telling...
Won't charge and motor in newer models is weak
Weak poorly made unit that does not charge properly and bogs out, ripping your hair even if you have thin hair. Yet another corner cutting company hanging on to nothing but their brand name, which won't last long if they continue selling sub standard products at double the price.
Wahl Lithium Ion Stainless Steel Trimmer
The beard trimmer is powerful and the battery impressive with its power and stamina. the trimmer itself feels like a quality unit and well made. - the plastic length attachments however feel cheap, nasty and prone to breakage - they are a disappointment for an otherwise very nice product. Luckily I only need one of these attachments and plan not to wear it out by taking it on an off the shaver head repeatably. Honestly these plastic clip on parts are not made to last - What was Wahl thinking
Motors have been replaced?!
After purchasing my second trimmer I've discovered that they have cut corners and replaced the motor in the trimmer. The motor now constantly bogs out and tears at your hair! My hair is thin! this never happened with the old model which had a nice strong motor. Another company skimping out on quality and replacing products with sub standard garbage yet asking the same price.
Piece of rubbish
Bought it because it "looked the goods". Straight up it didn't have much power. 10 month on its in the bin and I'm back to my $30 trimmer that actually works. If you want a trimmer that hardly works and will almost send you broke to buy it, this is your one. Otherwise if you want to trim your beard and still be able to afford to go fishing on the weekend I'd stick with a cheap one that will still do the job. This product sucks.
