How to choose a beard trimmer or hair clipper


There are plenty of options on the shelf, so let's run through a few key factors to consider before buying:  
 
Price: Hair clippers and beard trimmers range in price from £15 to £200, so set a budget for yourself.  Remember, you usually get what you pay for - the higher-priced models have more powerful engines and will last longer with proper care. Keep them clean and oiled and they will serve you for years.  
 
Combs: Beard trimmers and hair clippers usually come with matching combs, so you can change the length of your hair to your heart's content. Not surprisingly, styles with more accessories tend to be more expensive, so consider whether your style has changed enough to be worth the investment.  
 
Battery life: Most models are rechargeable, so check how long the battery of your gadget of choice lasts before you need to charge it, especially if you're taking it with you.  
 
Wired or wireless? Today, most wireless clippers are just as powerful as wired clippers, but they're more maneuverable. They're also easier to pack and store, a no-brainer if you travel a lot or only have a small bathroom.  Wired equipment, on the other hand, is usually cheaper.
