What customers say about "Key Specs"
Wahl 5537-1801 Beard Trimmer with Bonus Personal Trimmer
  • Blades were sharp enough and last fine for mild use.
  • Wish it was waterproof, but so far have not had any problems keeping it dry around the sink & tub!
  • When working, the blade area gets pretty hot after just 30 seconds. Not enough to burn, but certainly not comfortable.
  • The blades cut well and are sharp but they don't cut closely enough to the skin.
  • Pulls hair, blades gets rusty even with proper maintenance and oiling.
Remington VPG6530 Lithium Power Series 4 In 1 Vacuum Trimmer
  • It is easy to us, excellent blade size, not to big or to small to handle full beard trim and small intricate trim.
  • The trimmer blades work well and provide a good cut. I use this for trimming my beard and cutting my hair.
  • Blades are fine and have not trouble trimming my thick beard.
  • Cuts are not amazing due to the distance between the blades and the setting.
  • The blade is not as strong as the previous model I had. Doesn't cut well.

What customers say about "Size & Weight"
Wahl 5537-1801 Beard Trimmer with Bonus Personal Trimmer
  • It's safe to the touch, light weight, and there's no pesky cord to worry about so your range is wide open.
  • It's compact, light weight, and simple to use.
  • The small size helps get into tight areas under my nose.
  • Also, this is light and handy enough to use as a travel grooming accessory, since it weighs nothing and takes up so little space.
  • Cheap materials, quality is not as good as my other Wahl trimmer.
  • The overall quality as in material and weight it what you would expect from a cheaply priced trimmer.
  • I don't have a sensitive skin, but there are red spots allover due to the cheap material.
Remington VPG6530 Lithium Power Series 4 In 1 Vacuum Trimmer
  • Good size.
  • The vacuum mouth next to the blades gets stuck u have to shake the machine for the hair to go in , the turbo vacuum its small and it doesn't suck the hair.
  • This product was purchased as a beard trimmer but too bulky so it was returned for a more slimmer down version.
  • My first concern when I received this trimmer was its bulkiness. It is noticeably larger than other trimmers.
  • The clipper is very bad materials , and very bad quality!! its hardly cut the hair!

  • The small cutting head allows precision I could not achieve with my full sized hair trimmer.

  • The clip-on guides are difficult to attach.

What customers say about "Power"
Wahl 5537-1801 Beard Trimmer with Bonus Personal Trimmer
  • Plus it runs on batteries so its great for traveling,
  • My favorite feature of the Wahl 5537-1801 is the replaceable AA batteries.
  • However, my biggest complaint is that it burns through batteries when it's not even turned on. If I leave fresh batteries sitting in the clipper, they nearly die within a week.
  • It burns through batteries faster than I'm willing to deal with.
  • I've had to replace the batteries every other use.
Remington VPG6530 Lithium Power Series 4 In 1 Vacuum Trimmer
  • I do like that this is rechargeable, I plugged it in when I got it and unplugged it the next morning.
  • The rechargeable battery is impressive, and after a couple weeks, I purposely wanted to test the charge time. It worked fine each time and very handy without a cord.
  • The rechargeable lithium battery charged up in about an hour initially and took about four hours to charge after fully drained.
  • Holds a long battery life.
  • It was a nice trimmer, however the battery lost the ability to recharge about 4 months after the warranty expired.
