I didn't like my Wahl... But to be fair, it made a nice noise as it hit the bin.
Same here been using one for 3 Years with rechargeable batteries, put a smudge of vaseline on the terminals I bouight a second one for a fiver as a spare and its still in pack lol
These are worth every penny. Picked one up years ago and still going strong, didn't have the 3 x Close trim attachment combs then... No, must resist (fierce)
Student discount added too :)
