Poor battery life
I purchased this for my husband and he was thrilled. Unfortunately the battery life was horrible. A full charge only lasted about 25 minutes. Not satisfied at all!
Top notch product
This clipper is much better than I expected. I have never even attempted to cut my own hair before. But with a little thinking about it before hand (battle plan) and using the different hair length attachments it came out great, even the back. The clippers themselves appear to be very well made and I liked the case so that everything stores easily in a bathroom drawer. I got this because my barber of several years retired and closed his shop I tried two others and was not all that pleased. I'm in my 60's but still have a full head of hair and have the traditional men's haircut with a part on the left side. Using the various length comb attachments was the key to it coming out well.
Good Product Poor Support
I've used the HC318R/HC501R which is the same clipper as the HC318QV but with 27 pieces and 2 detachable blades. I will purchase this item simply to replace the power cord. Mine worked for more than 5 years faithfully. I like the detachable metal blades for detailing and nose/ear grooming. But it's no longer on the market, just the plastic combs. I contacted Conair by email and listed the power cord part number (UD312A). After sending a follow-up email and waiting 2 weeks they emailed me back to say I must call customer service to order parts. Replacement parts are not listed when you search their website. It's easier for me to just go to Walmart and buy a new set for $21.99 plus tax. If on-line service was better, this product would rate 4 stars. BTW- doesn't hold a charge too long.
Up to you.
I have experience with Conair cutters, as this is my third set over 10 years. The previous two were of considerably higher quality than this one, both in build and their ability to cut hair comfortably. To be fair, it cuts OK, and does the job it's intended for. BUT, the hair shavings stick to the body of the cutter like there's glue on it and are very hard to get off. You keep wiping and wiping and the electrostatic charge pulls them back lol. It's like a tug of war! Poor choice of materials on Conair's part. On the good side, it works, though the cut is not as comfortable as with my other two. It chafed my scalp a little, though nothing dangerous (I always cut as close to the skin as much as the cutter will allow), which never happened with my other two. Also, the candy apple red color is pretty and the unit is lightweight and the price is cheap. If you've never had a better one, and just need something to do the job, it will work. If you want a higher quality experience, pay more and get something else.
The clippers, after charging for the reccomended time, have great power and cut time!! The case is nice and sturdy and keeps everything together, no cramming it in to get it closed! I love the cordless feature! My last set lasted 20 years! I hope this one will too!! Conair makes a great product and walmart sells it at a price that the product pays for itself within two uses!
