The Wahl Lithium Ion+ (Model 9818) is a high tech looking, heavy duty, stainless steel trimmer. With some 22 pieces of cutting gear it can pretty much groom every part of your body. With the Lithium Ion+ Tool, you get 4 hours of run time after a full one-hour charge. If you forget the charge the unit, it can do a quick charge, which will give you 3 minutes of run time with a 1-minute charge. (A slight down side is that the unit will not run when it’s plugged in, so the quick-charge feature is a big help.) The company says it has twice the torque compared to Wahl's standard trimmer. It’s great for really short (like almost bald) hair like mine. Changing attachments is easy too, once you do it a couple of times. The worldwide voltage makes this trimmer a great travel tool too. There’s a travel pouch in the kit too. Lower priced trimmers with NICAD or NIMH batteries will quit working long before the newer Lithium Ion battery technology will give up. A nice blue LED indicator light lets you know when the battery is running low on power and needs to be recharged. When plugged in, it will continue to blink while charging, then go out to indicate the Lithium Ion+ is fully charged. MSRP is $69.99, but it’s available on Amazon for about $55.
I haven’t shopped this link, but it’s under $55 here:
