BaByliss for Men PowerLight Pro Hair Clipper UK Review
This clipper is a reasonably popular cheapish, cordless clipper that will also work when plugged in to the mains. Babyliss is a quality manufacturer and this particular model is at their lower end of their clipper range though its still quite well rated . At around £15 and averaging almost 4 out of 5 in the ratings , we would have to say that this is one of the best value clippers on the market.
This clipper is designed to be used mainly for your head and not so much the face or body. It is a cordless model and comes with 8 blending combs ranging from 1-8 along with some scissors and a moustache comb. It also comes with a cleaning brush and the oil you will need to keep up maintenance.
Babyliss Power Light Pro Hair Clipper features

- Enhanced motor power for smooth fast cutting
- Separate storage pouch
- Skin friendly, easy to change comb guides
This is pretty much an entry level clipper. At around £15 you may not expect much but these clippers are really great for the price. They will trim up hair quite precisely and they don't seem to catch or pull the hair as many other cheap clippers do.
The blades on clippers come in a variety of materials ranging from stainless steel right up to titanium and Japanese steel and this Babyliss PowerLight Pro comes with stainless steel blades which you would expect for clippers in this price range. You should expect to get around 45 mins of use from a 16 hour charge but they will work perfectly well if connected to the mains when the battery is low,.
What Buyers Say About the Babyliss PowerLight Pro Hair Clipper?
When buying a lower priced product like this, buyers expect to get a product that does job its supposed to and is reliable. Most don't expect anything too fancy.With 70% of users rating this clipper either 4 or 5 out of 5 it seems this product seems to have pleased most users and when buying a cheaper product it is well worth looking at what actual buyers and users have said about it. These are after all people who have bought the product, used it and then taken the time to leave a review.
Straightaway we found that around half of all buyers rated this as a 5 star product with a further 15% rating it 4 out of 5 so it clearly did the job for those buyers. Slightly over 1 in 10 buyers gave it a 1 star rating and the main complaint seems to be problems with the battery charging slowly or not at all.
If you look at the overall ratings around 4/5 of all buyers stated that this clipper was excellent or very good so you would have to assume that this should be a highly recommended unit.
