Xiaomi Hair Trimmer – Performance
Well, after using it for around three months. I think its safe to say this is one hell of a clipper. It’s hands down one of the best. Especially if you’re in a hurry.
- The Xiaomi hair clipper works great and is perfect for thick hair. The one button slide will help you easily measure and set the length as and when you use without having to stop and attach a different comb and resume the process. It’s very fluid and the soft bendable nature of the guard and the cutter let’s you move comfortable without and hesitation which I really loved. I totally relied on this device and pushed it down on to my skin near my nape and i didn’t get a single nick.
- As i mentioned I have thick hair. So, i was on Turbo mode the entire time. I never really felt a major difference between the Turbo and Regular mode. Either way it was extremely easy and effective and there was no heat generation or electrical discharge of any kind.
- However, i did notice something after i was done cutting my hair. Enchen claims that their EMS technology provides energy management and efficient motor function. While the trimmer did last for about 2.5 months on a single charge the motor function had some issues. Basically, Enchen claimed that device won’t pull of catch hair. While this didn’t happen i did notice quite a bit of hair had made its way into the the head of the the trimmer.
- While this isn’t too big of a deal it still has a chance of messing with the motor. So, be sure to remove the head and give it a clean after your done using it. Another issue was the noise. While it’s true the ceramic cutter is quiet, the positioning comb actually rattles when it’s above 5 mm. While it is quite ironic, it’s also pretty damn annoying.
This is certainly device with pros and cons and fortunately the pros do outweigh the cons. The Xiaomi Enchen Hair Trimmer Is equipped with functions and features that will make your life a whole lot easier. the nano-ceramic cutter head, the two speed and the one button positioning comb help you save an insane amount of time due to the fluidity.
