Hair Styling Length and Combs

It is always recommended to start with the larger guide comb then use shorter combs if shorter length is desired. Cut only a small amount until you become accustomed to the combs. You should also try to cut slowly and smoothly without forcing the clipper through the hair.
If you are going to use it for head shaving, it´s best to remove the guards and use it directly but must take care on the contours as the blades are quite sharp.
Blade Cleaning and Maintenance
The blades for this hair cut kit are made of high carbon steel and never need sharpening. However, just like any other clipper, the blades do need oiling and they are cleaned with the enclosed brush.
The blades are permanently aligned so you never need to adjust them, and are detachable for thorough cleaning.
Battery Power and Cord

Considering the extent of its power, the motor is fairly quiet and lightweight.
