Nice little trimmer
April 15, 2016
I have had the Andis Trim'N Go for about a week now and so far, so good. I had a similar AA battery powered trimmer for several years, but it was horribly loud and did not have a T-blade like the Andis does. As soon as I tried out my new trimmer, I realized how much better it was and threw away the old one! The Trim'N Go is really quiet and the T-blade works great for cleaning up my neckline, ears, and sideburns after I cut my hair. The Trim'N Go is an ideal companion to my Oster clipper and allows me to finish off my buzz cut like a pro. Keep in mind, this is not a substitute for a clipper, so don't buzz your entire head with it! It's not powerful enough for that, but for its intended purpose, it works great.
ProsThe T-blade is perfect for trimming around ears; it reaches hair that the clipper misses. It is also ideal for trimming inside ears and nostrils. The blade is wide which makes it easier to cut a straight line. Trimmer is small, light, easy to hold. It runs on a AA battery, so there's no cord and no need for charging or waiting for the trimmer to charge, just pop in a new battery and you're good to go.
ConsYou need to buy batteries, but I replaced the battery in my old trimmer maybe once a year at the most. Not really a problem, just something to be aware of. I keep spare batteries anyway because I have a lot of things that use them; TV and stereo remotes, electrical test instruments (multimeters, circuit trackers, testers, etc.), flashlights, and the like. I use Rayovac alkaline batteries.
