The Wahl Lithium Ion plus is the one of the most highly rated beard trimmers in the world. It has a durable metal body with a powerful motor capable of handling any sort of beard. It has 11 clip on guide combs, a detailed shaver and a nose trimmer. The quality of these accessories is average but no other trimmer gives you such an assorted variety of accessories.
It has a T-blade detailing blade which makes it ideal for grooming and trimming beards. The Wahl 9818 is so smooth that it doesn’t pull at any hair when you are trimming and provides a smooth experience. The body is heavier than other shavers since it is metal. It is something like the barbers use in their salons.
The Wahl 9818 gives a battery life of 4 hours and above on a full charge and also a has a quick one minute charge which gives 3 minutes of trimming to keep you groomed when you are short of time.
Though one major drawback with the Wahl 9818 is that it is an import item meaning you do not have warranty available in India which is most of the times a critical factor when purchasing grooming products. However, this offers the best combination of durability, quality, and price when it comes to beard trimmers. So, the probability of it breaking apart is low but you, if it happens the only option left, would be to buy another one.

Can I clean shave with a beard trimmer?
Yes, but it is not recommended as the trimmer blade will usually deteriorate over time and your trims will not be as sharp as before. You should use an electric shaver for your shaving needs.
Can I trim a wet beard?
No, you should not. Your beard should be dry when you are using a trimmer.
How do you clean a beard trimmer?
The Philip models chosen by us have detachable blades which you can clean with tap water. The Wahl model requires oiling of at least once in 15 days. This is to ensure that you get the best trim for the longest duration.
How to trim facial hair the right way?
Before you start, make sure that your trimmer is clean. For this, you can use a shaving brush to remove the leftover hair. Use some facial scrub and cream to prepare your skin and soften the beard. It will be much easier to shape it than if you didn’t prepare your skin at all. Doing this way, you will also prevent skin irritation.
