Wahl’s Power Pro all in one grooming kit is currently one of the most wanted corded clippers on the market so we were curious as to how it would perform given its very attractive low price and a nice feature set. From the moment we opened the retail package we were pleasantly surprised with the amount of equipment that comes included. Full beard trimming.
The whole kit comes with one Power Pro model no. 9686 hair trimmer, a single stainless steel blade, detail trimmer, beard comb, cleaning brush, blade oil, storage case and an instruction manual available in English and Spanish language. There is one stubble, one medium and a full beard guide comb included. Users have a choice of 8 available clipper guide combs and they come in the range of 1/8 for the smallest up to 1 inch for the biggest comb guide in size.
These heavy duty corded trimmers come with stainless steel blades and the manufacturer specifies that they are made to last longer and stay sharp even with extensive use. The cord is long and doesn’t get tangled during use so it will provide plenty of movement range during hair trimming or beard grooming.
Seeing how the Power Pro clipper comes with 17 trimming length positions – it will come in handy for both hair and beard detailing. This provides plenty of freedom when it comes to different hairstyles users would want to try out.
Its compact size and streamlined body make handling the clipper a pleasure and we experienced no slips or balance issue when we were using it on a daily basis.
Top ten beard styles
We’ve definitely noticed a rugged and a more premium finish of the 5855 trimmer model and wish that other manufacturers paid as much attention to small details as Remington did. Remington uses a system they named POWERCUT in order to make an ideal haircut each and every time.
During our testing of the unit, we found it to certainly work as advertised. There are other features that you won’t find on any other competitor’s hair trimmers. For instance, Remington uses a super magnet motor which has more than enough power to go through any type of hair or beard. No matter the length or thickness. This is possible thanks to the precision-made ground blades which enable smooth hair trimming and cutting. All of this makes an especially nice feature set which comes handy for some daily beard trimming.
The toughness part comes from a virtually indestructible polycarbonate casing, hardened rubber grip and a sturdy 8-foot long cord. Plus, there is a lifetime warranty included. Talk about confidence about the quality of a product. Remington certainly has a well-deserved reputation to back it up.
The complete package is well rounded. Besides the trimmer, itself, you get 8 guide combs, blade guard, barber scissors, oil bottle, barber cape and a cleaning brush out of the box. A well-packed grooming kit indeed.
After doing some extensive testing and living with all these fine corded beard trimmers, our choice for the best one goes to the Wahl Professional Peanut clipper/trimmer.
Our staff was equally impressed by the build quality as well as with the great performance this little device packs. It offers most of the features that some of the more expensive models have while also including accessories not found even at the higher price range. Using it was a pleasure and there were no uncomfortable experiences during our testing. It simply glided across the skin surface and removed hair with equal precision and exact trim no matter the length or thickness of the hairs. The little trimmer packs a powerful motor which is paired with some extremely sharp blades that make every grooming session an easy affair.
Do note that this trimmer isn’t perfect and the only thing that prevents it to be a complete product may be the medium loudness noise it makes. To some, this won’t be much of an issue but those who prefer quieter grooming sessions may want to look elsewhere.
If you manage to get over that small nitpick, you will own one of the best beard trimmers available on the market and at a very affordable price tag.
