Whether one is an apprentice barber or an established hairdresser, one of the first decision one has to take when purchasing a new set of clippers is to choose a corded or cordless one. Both have their pros and cons and one’s choice will invariably depends on the way one will use their tool.
This post highlights, at a quick glance, which areas each type of hair clipper shines in.

CORDED

The key advantage of corded hair clippers is that they are generally lower in cost than those that are cordless. They offer continuous flow of power and ensure that the clipper maintains full power whilst you carry out a full clip. This means you will have no time restraints when with a client. Since you don’t have a battery that’s losing its ability to charge over time, you get a solid flow of power that is both consistent and reliable.

Disadvantages include being restricted by the length of the lead. You must be careful not to cause damage to your power cord as damage will cause the clipper to stop and start, or potentially stop working until the lead is replaced. It is advised to avoid twisting and putting strain on the cord to enhance longevity. Always allow the cord to hang naturally and avoid coiling for the sake of tidy storage.
