And you think it's packaged and sold as returned? Do you know what your hairdresser or barber does with theirs?
The procedure in this case is pretty minimal - wipe, new casing, new blades, test (like all products will be if they’re being re-sold). Of course, in some cases it’s more economical to sell a new one, but in this case you can see how it’s not much. I’d understand if you had this arrive and found hair all over it, but that’s not the case. These Wahl refurbs even have cases that say ‘refurbished’ to show they’ve been changed.
Wahl say they despatch on day of order. Ive ordered a Colour Pro FOUR days ago and still "processing" not even desptached
Hi @bugra101 thanks for sharing your first deal and this appears to be a decent saving compared to new and the clipper still comes with a 12 months warranty. We've also added some additional product information to your opening post. Voted hot :)
i’m sure Wahl UK is changing the blades and batteries that won’t cost the earth for the sake of hygiene. This is not some dodgy website, It’s their own. If you’re that worried never go to barber.
just thrown some of these in the bin after a few years. Not as good as the Remmington ones.
Cool thanks for the tip - will do. It sounds like they just update stock in dribs and drabs rather than any bulk.
Yep, been checking once a day for the past week or so and snapped one up when I saw stock this morning. Worth keeping your eyes peeled if you want one
Went OOS very quick

Surprisingly, this piece of rubbish was £40 on official whal website during quarantine. I will never buy from Whal again!!!
Good deal, but buy Remington. Wahl get stupidly hot right out the box on first use ♨
I got a similar battery/mains Wahl and it isn't very good at near in my hair. First use I did 0.5 and it worked well enough, next time I did number 2 and it struggled and I had to go over it again and again and again. Number 3 even worse it must take me about 45.minutes to go all over and have it evenish. It is possibly my hair which is quite fine and dense'ish but the ones they use in barbers, salons etc use never have a problem. I was told to get one with ceramic blades next time rather than stainless. Going to do a number 4 today I will have to time it.
Ideal for clipping the spaniel
I've had a pair of these for a couple of years now. They are solid and do a good job (obviously not as good as a barber!)
These are pretty good, I do our Springer Spaniel with them.....just remember to clean behind the comb regularly when using as they clog up fairly quickly. They work well though.

as above credit card payment goes into a loop but paypal seems to work
I got this for £35 from Amazon during the height of lockdown and it’s been great - I’ve not bothered returning to the barbers now they’re open again. I’ve not had any issues with the battery - it’s never run out of charge yet This is a good price for a decent set of clippers - the colour coded guards are a real help too
You can use it while charging thankfully. The lead is only a thin twin core so easy to use and the connector stays in well whilst you move it around.
Quick question, does it work off A/C while charging, or does plugging it in shut off the motor? I purchased an airbed inflator recently with this crazy behaviour, once the battery conks out it will be as useful as a door stop.
I have this and paid £20 in Tesco. It's ok, shaves the hair ok but does take ages to charge. I leave it in overnight and it will do three head clips and a face shaves ! Just a note, it will shred your balls if you like a trim down stairs ;)
All battery powered stuff should come with lithium batteries in this day and age, power tools have been doing it for years
These are good, had them over a year from Argos No issues with charge time, duration or vibratiion. Come with a number 0.5 guide to good when you need a crisp haircut https://www.argos.co.uk/product/7507616?clickSR=slp:term:hair%20clippers:11:13:2
Just purchased this, excellent clipper, I actually used it straight from the box for a haircut, (I was desperate through Lockdown).Cordless. Was amazed the battery never went flat. My days of paying 15 quid to barber's are over.
Totally agree. These hacked me like nothing else before. Phillips product considerably better.
Hi, I wasn't attacking you. I'm just saying it's not for me, great for those who need one. Voted hot.
Which is pretty standard for these kinds priced clippers. You’ll have to pay a bit more if you want better usage. Also as mentioned in the title it can be plugged in at any time should you wish to use it corded
Great clippers (y) 🏻
Is there a way to expire the deal myself or do I need for admins to expire it?
It's out of stock
Can be used for beard?
I bought this one a couple of months ago..they are really bad, the vibrations of the hairclipper is really strong
Isn't the same one in superdrugs for £19?
Now that makes so much sense XD thank you!
It has 8 combs (1-8) and a left and right ear taper comb
Didn't really rate the colour pro. Battery life was terrible. Guards are cheap . Started making noise and shaking then Blade went wonky. 6 months used about 10 times. Could have been a dodgy one. Needs to go back to argos I have seen this rated at 3 in top clipper top 10s. I thought it was trash. Plus I paid £18 on black friday.
Gets really hot if you don’t use it for haircut as well.
17.99 at Amazon but listed as in stock on 26.07.20
I have this, it cuts really well but does get really hot if you are using it for a long time.
One of the best bargains I've bought on here over the years. Thanks OP! Arrived really quickly too.
Got theses for £13 in Asda recently and seem to be better than the more expensive ones I've used
This one and the super taper are now OOS
I bought the cheap Wahl Colour Pro Styler hair clipper from Argos the other week. The coloured combs make it very easy to select which one to use and range from grades 1 to 8. I'm now sporting a rather dapper haircut with only a couple of chunks missing on the sides. Next time though I'll cut my hair in the garden because it took forever to clean the hairs up in the bathroom.
Check this Wahl one from Argos. Same price but had more guards https://www.argos.co.uk/product/2271796
Back in stock
I go for a bald look anyway zero grade if possible! I'm after a very decent cordless that can do zero grade and also comes with some attachments for beard please... If anyone has a suggestion let me know.
Go to wahl website and you can get the “baldfather” for same price, Also sounds cool just saying it (lol)
Not sure tbh, only go to number one myself.
How good is this for zero, completely bald.
So it is. Just checked. Sorry folks, will expire it.
I would hazard a guess that the Argos mode has a far less inferior motor than this one. Additionally, this one has a taper arm whereas the Argos model does not and it’s much more ergonomic to hold. If you were looking to buy one, I’d probably go for this deal, looks and seems like it would be much better to hold. This one also comes with a barber cape (according to Wahl).
Out of stock
Thanks, how do you understand the difference between this and the similar looking one for £10/12 at Argos.?
The detailer seems very flimsy but the clipper is quite good
Available to order again and in stock. Mine just arrived and they seem very good quality.
Great deal! just sold out as I tried to buy one hairs looking like a birds nest lol
I believed that my wife did a good job until I had a look at the back..hahaha, she almost shaved all my hair in the back.
I added this to the last thread the other day. I braved it for the first time and was really impressed. Good luck. Just used these for the first time they are brilliant. Staggered how easy to use, I did most of it myself then got the wife to do any bits I'd missed and the fine work around the edges. Watched a video which was a huge help Impressed with the quality of these for the money too.
the Cordless Clipper 9649 was half price by itself, few months ago. bought 17.50£, https://www.argos.co.uk/product/7075083?clickSR=slp:term:wahl:27:51:1 but this offer is still better atm as it includes a Personal Trimmer if it's needed of course!
I had mine delivered within 3 days great company
Have bitten the bullet and purchased. 13 weeks without a hair cut. Already saved £50 in haircuts, but enough is enough. Hope they arrive before my barber's reopen !
£39.59 is the price after discount
Brill - perfect timing for me so that's one ordered. No more mop!
Mine arrived. Lots of vibrations. Returned.
Thanks. My dispatch email was in junk. It says they have it as of yesterday lunch so hopefully I'll have it tomorrow. Back to work Monday so it better arrive!!
Mine came via Royal Mail 48 Tracked. I got an email with a tracking number on it on Friday, so I'm guessing Royal Mail have a bit of delay in the system.
Ok, who was the courier?
Mine arrived this morning. (y)
Why is this cold?
Glad someone else managed to get one!
I can just add that my order has been dispatched today so very happy under the circumstances.
Thanks for this @Keezer Think the thread was left live while it was out of stock which accounts for the cold votes as its not a bad deal :) Seems Wahl delivery is a bit of an issue at the moment too. I ordered on 7th May when delivery was within 7 days but its been 11 days and still no sign of despatch.
These guys take about a month to deliver
Mine are overheating too, I mean 5 mins in and I can’t carry on until they cool down. Any chance yours stopped overheating or did you contact Wahl at all, this can’t be normal!
Had a go with it - it did get hot after approx 10 mins, but that was outside in the sun, so maybe yours could be faulty. Seemed to do the job.
Ah thanks - I'll see how mine go and let you know
I didn't take much notice of it until I read this article ... https://www.thesun.co.uk/money/11676285/warning-hair-clippers-ebay-amazon-burn-scald/
I'd say around 5 minutes of use, the heat emanated from the bottom of the clipper ( where you tend to hold the clipper from ) It was the first time I had used the clipper so I'm not sure if this will be a constant occurance or not but wanted to check if anyone else was having the same issue.
