The Best 5 Cordless Hair Clippers

By Matt V


There are a lot of reasons to own hair clippers, even without the Coronavirus lockdown. You can trim facial hair yourself, mow down a forest of arm, leg, or chest hair, or touch up between haircuts. Now that haircuts are not available everywhere or to everyone, it might be time to start cutting hair at home. Make the job easier with the best cordless hair clippers.

Why cordless? In general cordless electronics do not provide the same power as

(cordless drill, I’m looking to you.) However, the ease of use and portability makes the trade-off worth it. Shaving often puts clippers at funny angles, especially with cutting hair or grooming the body. Cordless clippers mean there is no cord to twist around or get tangled. Even better, some of these clippers are waterproof and can be used in the shower.

Which of these is the best cordless clipper? Well that depends on what you want to use it for. To manscape from head to toe, look for clippers with the multiple heads and clipper guards. Ceramic blades stay cooler than steel and are corrosion-free. Waterproof clippers can be used in the shower and washed clean. Professional clippers are more powerful and sharper. And cheap clippers perform on a budget.

On top of that, these clippers all come with extras. Clipper guards help cut hair and beards. An adjustable blade makes it easy to cut close and fade hair. Some clippers come with additional heads for narrow cuts or the nose and ears.

Cordless is the same as rechargeable or battery-operated clippers. All of these cutters have lithium-ion batteries that can be recharged. Some can be used while plugged in. Some are USB. And run times range from 60 to 300 minutes.
