Nova Rechargeable Modern Hair Clipper Kit Review

My husband likes to keep his beard neatly trimmed. It is not excessively short, but it is not nearly as long or as fluffy as the men on Duck Dynasty. His beard always is even underneath as he takes excessive pride in keeping the edges and lines straight. He has been using Phillips Norelco for years. While we have been married these last 7 years he has had 2 trimmers. The first Norelco still works, we just replaced it as it was dropped and a big part of the plastic broke off of the hair catching area.

We were sent a review clipper from Nova. I have not heard of this brand but was excited to have him try it out. This is a hair, body, mustache, and beard trimmer. It is a modern looking design, and comes with ac adapter, dock, 4 trimming attachments and cleaning brush. The set is supposed to come with oil as pictured in the Amazon listing, but sadly we did not receive any with ours. We thought it worked decently and does trim the hair, however what we really like with his Norelco is the fact that it has a turbo vacuum and catches/sucks the lose hair as it trims. Most of the hair is caught in the storage, and less hair is in the sink, floor, or counter. I think we have been spoiled by that feature and now we expect and miss it.

This trimmer does work. It does feel and look a bit on the lower end, as it is very lightweight and the plastic parts and body are not the best. It is stainless steel on the blade. It comes with 3 trimmer attachments in the sizes: 3mm, 6mm, & 9mm. We like how the adjustment on his Norelco can accommodate 18 different length settings, needs no oiling or maintenance for the blades, and has the vacuum feature. There are multiple length settings that start from 1 mm up to 18 mm. It has a turbo setting, for a faster trim through thicker hair, and better suction. Obviously a $60 trimmer will preform better than a $25 one. For the price, the Nova works, but i am not sure how long it will last. As I mentioned, his first Norelco still functions well, it just was dropped on a concrete floor and the door for collecting the hair broke. It did last 6 years before we replaced it with the new one.

Please do not think I am bashing the Nova. It does what it needs to do, it does not have the bells and whistles, but it is a decent trimmer. If you are on a budget and or go through trimmers quickly with wear and tear, or need a travel trimmer, this would be perfect. It is priced right so that if it does get lost you can replace it. The company does offer a 2 year guarantee if it has any issues.

This has an operating time of about 45 minutes, and does need 8 hours to charge.  I am not sure of the  charging time for the Norelco.

*I was sent a Nova trimmer for review, this is my opinion of it.
