Following are the definitions of each column:

No. Of Cuttings Lengths – This shows the total number of adjustments available on the trimmer to cut your hair at different lengths.

Settings Range – This shows the minimum and maximum lengths that can be cut with the trimmer. I have provided all measurements in mm but if you need to convert in inches, this can be easily done at the following site: www.evi.com/q/11/25_inches_to_mm

Power- This will show you if the trimmer functions with or without cord or both.

Charge Time – Indicates how long you need to charge the trimmer to achieve the results in the next column of the chart.

Run Time – This is an indication of how long the trimmer will run if it´s charged as per the previous column.

Battery Type –  Gives the type of battery used. The well known abbreviations used stand for:

NiCad –  Nickel Cadmium are well known rechargeable batteries used in various electrical equipment, such as laptops, mobile phones etc. It consists of two chemical elements, Nickel Hydroxide and Cadmium.

NiMH – Nickel metal hydrite battery is also a rechargeable battery. It has higher energy than Nicad battery but it also have higher discharging rate.

Lithium Ion –  These are more expensive than the above batteries but certainly a lot better quality and hold the charge very well.
