The Wahl brand is trusted in the hair clipper industry. They’ve been making their mark since 1919 and have come a long way since their first set of clippers. Today they have products like the Lithium Ion Clipper that is powered by lithium-ion technology and can hold a charge for an hour and 40 minutes. You can even skip the full three-hour charge and do a quick charge for 15 minutes. That's all you need for over 12 minutes of power.

As one of Wahl’s latest designs, the Lithium Ion Clipper has all of the best features you’ve come to know and love from Wahl, but with the technology of today. It has a magnetic motor with 50 percent more power than older versions. The increased power means less difficulty getting through thick hair, resulting in a clean and even cut.

The Lithium Ion Clipper from Wahl has more clipper guide combs than you could ever need:

  • No. 1/2 – 1/16" (1.5mm)
  • No. 1 – 1/8" (3mm)
  • No. 1 1/2 – 3/16" (5mm)
  • No. 2 – 1/4" (6mm)
  • No. 3 – 3/8" (10mm)
  • No. 4 – 1/2" (13mm)
  • No. 5 – 5/8" (16mm)
  • No. 6 – 3/4" (19mm)
  • No. 7 – 7/8" (22mm)
  • No. 8 – 1" (25mm)
  • Left Ear Taper
  • Right Ear Taper
  • Ear Trim Guide

  • Clipper Blade Guard

T

hat's 15 different clipper guide combs at your fingertips. If you want to shave your head bald, however, you would want to use the clippers without a guard. These hair clippers don't function as a razor, so you won’t get that smooth feeling of a newly shaved head, but you will get the bald look.

Along with 15 clipper guides, the Lithium Ion Clippers come with hair clips, styling combs and standard scissors. A soft storage case is provided to house all of the accessories and has a spot for every little thing to live – organization at its best. Because these hair clippers are rechargeable, a charger is another item to store. The included trimmer, however, is battery powered and the AA batteries are not included.

The Wahl Lithium Ion Clipper is the hair clipper of the future. It has a rechargeable battery that can hold a charge for almost two hours. It has 15 different clipper guides and a battery-powered trimmer. We’d say it’s a keeper.
