Rated 4 out of 5Â by robg Be prepared to run it from mains power only for a great cut. Battery fails to charge.
For those who want a good, even cut without the potential "stripeyness" of other types of hair trimmers, get this one. I am fortunate that I can run this on mains power cord. The battery has failed to charge for a loooooooong time now! But I still get a good cut :-)
I just hope it never fails halfway thru the job +:-0
I did note that they stopped selling it here - SAD :-)
I'm hoping to get many more years from it.
I use this without a mirror and never fail to get a tidy cut :-)
Remington, please re-release one with a great battery/charging circuit and you will have a winning product. Just don't lose the ability to shave while plugged in too ;-)
Rated 3 out of 5Â by Ektrey333 Two different units - Different blade lengths
I'm on my second Short Cut Clipper. Like everyone else on this board, I've experienced issues with the battery life. However, my newest clipper has a strong battery and so far no issues (fingers crossed).
Both units have the same model number (SCC-100R), however my second unit has a different voltage (5.6v vs. 4.5v) and a different blade length.
I cut at the shortest length (#1) with the guard. My first clipper was perfect but second unit does not come close to providing the same close cut as the original.
So I've got a great battery in my new clipper but it will not cut at the desired length of my original clipper. Ugh!!!
Rated 5 out of 5Â by NickB Excellent for the task
I am now about 2yrs into my second unit. The first one lasted about 5yrs, then the batteries quit, which worked out fine because it was time to sharpen the blades. This shows that the designers were thinking!
Almost all of the negative comments that I see here show that the user does not understand the product. It is a DAILY grooming product. I learned to use mine about 1 to 2 minutes, 3 times a week, and it runs like a champ.
This trimmer is NOT to replace a once a month haircut. Use it at least 3 times a week. You do not shave your face once a month with a standard razor! Use this tool correctly, as designed, as it will serve you well.
Rated 4 out of 5Â by vpanko85 Great product with a few minor flaws
I've been using this product since the day I went bald, which was about 4-5 years ago. So far, I could not find any better alternative. While it's new, it performs great. I love the fact that the blades are curved in order to mimic the shape of a head. My only complaint is the battery life and the fact that you can't use it while is being charged. After a while, it can't hold the charge and drains very quickly. So, before you begin shaving your skull, make sure there's enough juice in the battery, or you'll end up with a funny haircut. Other than that, I'm very pleased with the product and would certainly recommend it to everyone.
