Preparing for use
Charging
Fully charging the appliance takes approx. 1 hour.
A fully charged appliance has a cordless clipping time of
up to 1 hour.
	 1	 	Make sure the appliance is switched off.
	 2	 	Insert the appliance plug into the appliance (Fig. 3).
	 3	 	Insert the adapter into the wall socket.
,
, When you start charging the empty appliance,
the bottom segment of the charge level indicator
flashes orange.When the battery contains enough
power for one clipping session of approx. 10
minutes, the bottom segment starts flashing blue.
,
, First the bottom segment of the charge level
indicator flashes blue, then the second segment and
so on, until the appliance is fully charged.
,
, When the appliance is fully charged, all segments of
the charge level indicator light up blue continuously.
,
, If the fully charged appliance is still connected to
the mains after approx. 1 hour, the segments of the
charge level indicator go out.
Battery low
When the battery is almost empty (when there are
approx. 10 clipping minutes left), the bottom segment of
the charge level indicator turns orange.
When you switch off the appliance, the bottom segment
of the charge level indicator flashes for a few seconds.
Optimising the lifetime of the rechargeable
battery
-
- After you have charged the appliance for the first
time, do not recharge it between clipping sessions.
Continue using it and recharge it only when the
battery is (almost) empty.
-
- Do not keep the appliance plugged in continuously.
Corded clipping
When the rechargeable battery is empty, you can also run
the appliance from the mains.
To use the hair clipper connected to the mains:

mains.
	 2	 	Wait a few seconds and then switch on
the appliance.
Using the appliance
Display indications

and when you turn the length adjustment ring.

- During clipping, the display provides the following
information: (Fig. 4)
,
, The selected hair length (i.e. the remaining hair
length after clipping) in millimetres.
,
, ’--’ when no comb is attached to the appliance
,
, ‘THIN’ when the thinning comb is attached to the
appliance
,
, The remaining battery charge.
,
, ’E’ if the cutting unit is blocked.
Clipping with the small and large clipping
comb
Make sure you use the right comb. If you use the
thinning comb instead of the small or large clipping
comb, only part of the hairs will be cut. 
Select the small or large clipping comb, depending on the
desired hair length.
-
- The hair length settings are indicated in millimetres
on the display of the appliance.The settings
correspond to the remaining hair length after
cutting (Fig. 5).
-
- The small clipping comb cuts hair to a length
between 3mm and 22mm in steps of 1mm.
-
- The large clipping comb cuts the hair to a length
between 23mm, and 42mm in steps of 1mm.
	 1	 	Slide the comb into the slot in the appliance
(‘click’) (Fig. 6).
	 2	 	To set the comb to the desired hair length setting,
turn the hair length adjustment ring to the left or
to the right (Fig. 7).
,
, The display shows the selected hair length.
	 3	 	Switch on the appliance.
Tips
-
- We advise you to start clipping at the highest setting
of the large clipping comb and to reduce the hair
length in small steps until you reach the desired hair
length.
-
- If a lot of hair has accumulated in the comb, remove
the comb and blow and/or shake the hair out of it.
Removing the comb does not change the set hair
length setting.
-
- Write down the hair length settings you have used
to create a certain hairstyle as a reminder for future
clipping sessions.
Clipping with the thinning comb
Make sure you use the right comb. If you use the small
or large clipping comb instead of the thinning comb, all
the hair will be clipped at the same length.
-
- The thinning comb cuts hair to a length between
3mm and 22mm in steps of 1mm.
-
- With the thinning comb, you can give your haircut
a natural look and it allows you to create a smooth
transition between two different hair lengths.
-
- The thinning comb cuts only half of the hair
that enters the comb, which results in a natural
look (Fig. 8).
Thinning an entire haircut
We advise you not to use the thinning comb for very
short haircuts.
	 1	 	Slide the thinning comb into the slot in the
appliance (‘click’) (Fig. 6).
	 2	 	Set the thinning comb to a lower setting than the
one you just used for the small or large clipping
comb to create the haircut.
How much lower the setting for the thinning comb
should be depends on your hairstyle and hair length.
However, never use the thinning comb at a setting that
is lower than half the setting you used to create the
haircut. For example, if you used the large clipping comb
at 30mm to create the haircut, do not use the thinning
comb at a setting lower than 15mm.  
	 3	 	Switch on the appliance.
	 4	 	Move the thinning comb through the hair.
Make sure the thinning comb only touches each spot
once, otherwise it cuts all the hair to the set hair length.
Creating a smooth transition between two
hair lengths
If you have cut your hair to two different lengths, you
can use the thinning comb to create a smooth transition
between these two lengths.
	 1	 	Slide the thinning comb into the slot in the
appliance (‘click’) (Fig. 6).
	 2	 	Set the thinning comb to a hair length setting that
is halfway between the two hair length settings you
used to create the haircut.
For instance, if you have cut top part of the haircut to a
length of 20mm and the bottom part of the haircut to a
length of 10mm, set the thinning comb to 15mm.
	 3	 	Move the thinning comb upwards through the
transition between the two lengths (Fig. 9).
Make sure the thinning comb only touches each spot
once, otherwise it cuts all the hair to the set hair length.
Clipping without comb
You can use the clipper without comb to contour the
neckline, the area around the ears and sideburns.
The comb keeps the cutting unit at a certain distance
from your head.This means that, if you use the clipper
without comb, your hair is cut off very close to the skin.
	 1	 	To remove the comb, pull it off the
appliance (Fig. 10).
Never pull at the flexible top of the comb.Always pull at
the bottom part.
	 2	 	Switch on the appliance.
	 3	 	Hold the appliance with the cutting unit pointing
upwards and make downward strokes with the
regular trimmer (the broad side of the cutting unit).
Be careful, the trimmer removes every hair it touches.
Using the precision trimmer
The precision trimmer is only half as wide as the regular
trimmer. It therefore allows more precise contouring of
the neckline, the area around the ears and sideburns.
	 1	 	To use the precision trimmer, simply turn the
cutting unit 180° until the precision trimmer points
towards the  front of the appliance (Fig. 11).
Note:You can also turn the cutting element 90° clockwise or
anticlockwise if this makes it easier to trim certain areas.

	 2	 	Switch on the appliance.
	 3	 	Hold the appliance with the cutting unit pointing
upwards and make downward strokes with the
precision trimmer (the narrow side of the cutting
unit).
Be careful, the trimmer removes every hair it touches.
