Used one of these for a while but wouldn't buy it again, the battery isn't great and also doesn't take long before it stops holding a charge. After about a year I had to use it plugged in.
Definitely more for beards than head hair. I can't see how you could blend in the different lengths to do any styles. Ok for a convict cut though.

Luckily that’s the look I’m going for! Should people might keep their distance then

Same here, good for the beard trim though. Battery not great, doesn’t hold charge much.

I have this one too and whilst mine has lasted a bit better, I agree. A friend has the lithium version, it seems less prone to the battery problem, but it is usually a good bit dearer.
I’ve had these too. Definitely just for beards and doesn’t hold a charge wouldn’t buy again
Rather go for lithium battery
these are absolutely awful.
bought one last time on offer.
will be returning after lockdown.
Have had mine for around a year and only use it once a week for my beard. Does anybody have a recommendation for a precision beard trimmer to clean up and be a bit cleaner.

I've never found a beard trimmer yet that works well on batteries alone for any length of time, I have one of these and use it plugged in all the time, I've had different brands over the years and found this model to be the best.
On my second one of these. Good beard trimmer. But, as others have said, the battery life drops off to the point that you need to fully charged it every time you use it or use the mains.
I've had one of these for 2 or 3 years and it's been great. The battery is ridiculously good for me. Think a charge lasts me nearly 2 months. Would only use it for beards though.

Agree battery life is atrocious.
For real close trimming my barber uses this one and i'm considering purchasing too.

I have one of these. I haven't experienced the battery problem as I don't use it that often. However, what I can say is that the guard is very brittle and flimsy and can break easily. Costs £7.99 for a new plastic guard I had checked the other day with reviews confirming the poor quality of the original guard that you get with this Remmington.

2 months?! How often do you use it, once a month?

I've found that the battery lasts for around 2 months if you trim a couple of times a week.
I have this and it's fantastic. I love the adjustable length, the battery is good, and my beard looks fantastic. The mini razor is very helpful for extra detail. It's been a little cheaper before though.

One full beard trim per week.
Had this model for 4 years.. solid equipment for beard management. Just bought the newer lithium battery model for only couple quid more
I've got 2. The first one broke when I dropped it on the extended comb, and that's when I bought the second one. I use both of them, the new one for use with the comb and the broken one without the comb. The batteries aren't great in them, but fortunately replacing the batteries with new ones isn't that hard, just a bit fiddly.
I've had this for over two years and it is a very reliable beard trimmer, battery is fine.

Ahh yes, I've had barbers that use these as well. A bit dear for me though
Its for beards. whyy is everything for beards
Here's a step by step guide to replace the batteries. But the batteries cost £10 - £12 and a new trimmer is £20. Plus you need a soldering tool and lots of patience.

I have bought 2 of these. The first one last about 10 years using twice a week. The second one just 2 years. Batteries died in both.

I would NOT buy this again. I am considering the LITHIUM version if it drops to £15 but that seems unlikely.

Someone mentioned a £80 plus WAHL but that seems a lot of money to risk on something where the battery might be just as much a dud. I think most of these trimmers, no matter the brand or how much you pay, are prone to poor batteries or wanting to remove half your face. Rather than spend £80 I would be inclined to take a punt on one of the £30 to £40 kits when on sale. You could buy 3 or 4 of them compared to something like the £80 plus WAHL.
