The Advantages of Having Lithium-Ion Hair Clippers & Trimmers

You may be wondering why a selection of our grooming products are fitted with Lithium-Ion technology. Here are the answers!

This post highlights The Advantages of Having Lithium-Ion Hair Clippers & Trimmers:


Lithium-Ion batteries are known for being lightweight weight thanks to their lithium and carbon electrodes. This means they are much lighter and smaller than as lead-acid batteries.

This characteristic is what makes them particularly ideal in hair clippers, beard trimmers and body grooming tools as it increases the runtime significantly without adding bulk and weight to the battery pack and your hand!

Long Lasting Power

Lithium has the ability to release and store large amounts of energy, allowing li-ion batteries to pack a high energy capacity in a small size, lightweight battery.

This translates to lithium-ion batteries lasting much longer between charges than other rechargeable batteries, while still maintaining their high level of performance.

Consequently, allowing you to use your clippers and trimmers for longer periods of time to complete a full groom.

More Charge Cycles

Lithium-ion batteries allow up to 1000 charge cycles. One charge cycle is a period of use from fully charged, to fully discharged, and fully recharged again.

Lithium-ion batteries don’t suffer from the ‘memory effect’ that older batteries can. This means they always give up their last bit of power, and you can recharge them whether you’ve used 100% or 25% of their capacity with minimal maintenance needed!

As a result, our lithium-ion hair clippers, beard trimmers and body grooming tools have a five-year warranty.

Virtually No Battery Loss during Storage

Self-discharge is a natural, irreversible phenomenon for older batteries, where chemical reactions inside the batteries reduce their capacity even when the battery is not being used.

However, Lithium-ion batteries have a relatively low self-discharge rate. This means that there is virtually no battery loss while your clipper or trimmer is stored away ready to use at your convenience.

Environmentally Friendly

Lithium-ion batteries contain relatively low levels of toxic heavy metals found in other types of batteries, such as lead-acid and nickel-cadmium (NiCd) batteries.

Although Li-ion batteries are safer than many other types of batteries they still require proper recycling, so never put your used batteries in with your regular rubbish!

To summarise, when compared with traditional battery technology, lithium-ion batteries charge faster, last longer, and have a higher power density for more battery life in a lighter package.
