Expert Reviews

What reviewers liked

The motor and blade are powerful and sharp enough to approximate a shave or to cut through thick, fully-grown beards with ease, but it’s also slim enough for grooming and precision detailing.
Perhaps the coolest feature of the battery is its charging time. If you’re in a hurry and your battery is depleted it only takes roughly one minute to get enough juice for a quick shave.
Solidly constructed and it doesn’t feel cheap or plastic.
This machine is impressive because it has an inbuilt precision trimmer which grooms to perfect without changing a setting.
Patented Wahl blades, made of precision ground carbon steel.

What reviewers didn't like

The smart LED is designed to blink when the battery is nearing depletion and to light up when charging, but sometimes it doesn’t light up, and it can be difficult to tell whether you are getting a charge at all.
Full-size shaving head attachment not included.
Some users had a difficulty getting this groomer to turn on and off while others experienced problems simply with shutting off the groomer.
Body is very heavy
This doesn't come with a full-size shaving head like the 9864 trimmer. If you want a close shave with it, you'll need to pick one of those up
