180 degree rotating head

Sounds like my wife.


I hope she is not following you and reading your comments
beware I bought the previous version of this which has worked very well for years. problem is I CANNOT FIND replacement cutting head as they are discontinued.
So they have Philips contrived redundancy and I have to buy a whole new unit again.
I have one of these and it's absolutely brilliant.

You're Probably due a newer version anyway I guess? Treat yourself.
I had the older version of this. Problem was the brittle plastic guides snapped. A replacement plastic guides cost just over half the price of a unit. The 3 guides snapped over time meaning to replace them would cost more than the cost of the unit.

As a replacement i bought the wahl li ion unit which uses more flexible plastic as the guide. Been using the wahl for 4 or 5 years now.

I have the do it yourself clippers off 4 years ago, which are still working and get the spare parts off Phillips website, also eBay and shavers.co.uk have spare parts. You just have to look about for them.

I bought them from your thread. Cut my hair every 2 months with them and use them without any guides every 2 or 3 days on stubble. I did break one of the guides and bought a new one off eBay for a few quid.

Well nice to hear, 7 years on.

I just need a new guide or 2. Thanks to this reminder I will charge them today.

Thankfully our new bathroom has a proper shaving power point.
i have these , better than old version, guide seems stronger , use mine every week,, best cutter i have found imo
well I have contacted Philips and they say sorry but these are no longer provided. Tried to order from China too without success.
I still have two of the original versions of this, which I bought at least 15 years ago. They still work, but it can only hold its charge of a single use at a time. The guards are still fine on them. Might plump for a new unit, perhaps see what happens over the black Friday.
I’ve been using these for the last 7 years. Absolutely brilliant. Use them with no guard on for shortest possible. When I click the link it says I bought in July 2017 for £25. These are my second pair as the first ones broke - the little clips holding the cutting head snapped off.
38890332-LuA4q.jpgUsed these only yesterday, highly recommended!
These arent great, had mine a few years and battery is nearly finished which isnt too bad. Never needed to use the swivel function and the cut isnt very neat. Went back to a wired WAHL recently and the cut quality is far better and was only 10 quid.
I've been using one of these for years and the previous version before that, never had any issues.
I bought my first one in 2014 and the second one last year for £24.99 both timesso not the cheapest by a long way.

Agreed. Mine did the job, but I found the rotating head a gimmick which wasn't very useful in reality. The guide numbering system is also different to the standard you're used to at the barber's and even the longest setting was very short. I'm much happier with a cordless Wahl with a full compliment of attachments, it cost me a couple of haircuts worth more but feels much more solid and is easier to get a good cut with.
The step between the two comb attachments is too much. Its also easy set the length incorrectly. I prefer different combs for different lengths

Exactly the same situation with my unit, just about get completed and the charge is used up, but with an extension cord I can just carry on cutting for as long as I need to if the battery does fail.

i certainly don’t make claims to be able to give myself a stylish cut, but I have saved a huge amount on hair cutting bills over the years, and this site is all about saving money.
I bought these approx 6 years ago from Boots when they were £15.
Use them every 4-5 days without guards for face shaving and also every 2-3 weeks for keeping sides of head short.
They've been brilliant but in the past couple of weeks the charge light has been glowing orange and a full charge has only just done a full face shave of about 5 minutes when cordless. Can still use them when plugged in though.
I ordered these from amazon at £30 yesterday morning and they arrived today. I figured I wouldn't get them as low as £15 again.
I agree with previous comments about the plastic lock on the comb attachment being fragile - mine broke before after a couple of months but I found I could still just about use it by gripping it on with my finger as I whizzed over. Had no accidental slippages with it.

The blades are also slightly rounded rather than sharp pointy like some razors so you can comfortably use it without combs for a close'ish shave without tearing your skin.

I had the older version too and now have this newer version, the guides are stronger.
Had mine for 5 years now so far... still going strong, use around every 2 weeks, sometimes less. Battery still very good etc, paid 5p less than this price in 2014, so good price still.

Still got mine bought for £15 couple of years ago 😁
I have this, it's fantastic. I'd suggest buying a cheap hand mirror to check your results.

i do too and totally agree worth every penny!
I have these and I can recommend them. One point, however. The manual states that they require no lubrication. I had noticed the motor had variable sounds as though it was labouring. I decide to put a spot of 3-in-1 on the blades. Running smoothly ever since. I just don't understand why the manual did not recommend it. I have never found the need to rotate the head but that would be down to individual technique I suppose.

I bought these off eBay (Sussex spares) 3 months ago and they fit and cut my hair the same as the original.
