Charging
Recommended ambient temperature for charging is 41 °F to 95 °F / 5 °C to
35 °C. The battery may not charge properly or at all under extreme low or
high temperatures. Recommended ambient temperature for trimming is 60 °F
to 95 °F / 15 °C to 35 °C. Do not expose the appliance to temperatures higher
than 122 °F / 50 °C for extended periods of time.
• Using the special cord set (6) or the charging stand (7), connect the
appliance to an electrical outlet with the motor switched off.
• When charging for the first time or when the appliance is not used for a few
months, leave the appliance to charge continuously for at least 4 hours
(HC5050/5030/5010: 8 hours).
• Once the appliance is completely charged, discharge it (until empty)
through normal use. Then recharge to full capacity. Maximum capacity
will only be reached after several charging/discharging cycles.
• A full charge provides at least 40 minutes of cordless operating time.
This may vary depending on the hair you are trimming.
• If the rechargeable batteries are discharged, you may also use the
appliance by connecting to an electrical outlet via the special cord set.
Charge indicator
HC 5090

permanently green provided the appliance is connected to an electrical
outlet.

HC 5050/5030/5010

General hair cutting information
• The hair should be clean, well combed, tangle-free and dry.
• If you are not used to clipping hair, begin with a higher setting and then
reduce the setting to avoid cutting more hair than desired.
• Use a slow and controlled movement. Do not force the clipper through
the hair faster than the clipper can cut it.
• In between, shake or blow off the hair from the clipper. If too much hair is
caught in the distance comb, remove it.
• To control your progress during clipping, regularly comb the hair in the
style desired.
Hair cutting
Hair cutting with hair clipping comb
• Place the hair clipping comb (1a/1b) on the appliance with the appliance
turned off.

hair length. Possible length settings (mm):
Long hair clipping comb (1a) = 14 / 17 / 20 / 23 / 26 / 29 / 32 / 35
Short hair clipping comb (1b) = 3 / 6 / 9 / 12 / 15 / 18 / 21 / 24
• Turn the appliance on by pressing the on/off switch (4) and cut hair to the
desired length.
Hair cutting without hair clipping comb
• Remove the clipping comb.
• To start clipping, turn the appliance on by pressing the on/off switch (4).

Slowly and carefully move the appliance against the direction of hair growth.

• Only when trimming contours the cutting system should be positioned
vertically (B, trimming).
• Make sure you do not tilt the appliance while it is touching the skin (C).
• Avoid jerky movements while cutting.
Cleaning
Regular cleaning ensures better trimming performance.
Cleaning with the brush
• Switch off the appliance. Open the cutting system by pressing with the
thumb against the trimmer from the front side. It opens by ca. 45°.
• Using the brush clean the trimmers and the space behind the trimmer
(inside the housing).
Cleaning with water
• Switch off the appliance and rinse the head and the trimmer under warm
running water. You can also rinse the opened cutting system. The appli-
ance should not be used until it has dried.
Keeping your appliance in top shape
To keep the cutting system working properly, oil it with light machine oil
after each use, especially when cleaning under running water (D).
Preserving the batteries
In order to maintain the optimum capacity of the rechargeable batteries,
the appliance has to be fully discharged (by operating) every 6 months
approximately. Then recharge the appliance to full capacity.
