Tips & Advice
IMPORTANT! Smooth Glide is very easy to use, however it is essential that you fully charge the unit for 3 hours before it’s first use. This initial supercharge ensures optimum power performance to give smooth fast cutting every time. Maximum battery capacity will only be reached after 3 charging/discharging cycles. A full charge will provide approximately 60 minutes use. A 30 minute quick charge will provide approximately 15 minutes use.
Before using for the first time, the appliance should be fully charged continuously for 3 hours. Maximum battery capacity will only be reached after 3 charging and discharging cycles.
Ensure the appliance is switched off.
Insert the small plug on the charging adaptor into the socket on the back of the appliance.
Plug the charging unit into a suitable mains socket.
The red charging indicator light on the power handle will flash when the appliance is correctly connected to the mains. When it is fully charged, indicator light will remain on.
A full charge will supply enough power for approximately 60 minutes of cordless use.
A quick charge of 30 minutes will give 15 minutes use.
Attach the comb guide length of your choice. Grade 1 = 3mm, Grade 2 = 6mm, Grade 3 = 9.5mm, Grade 4 = 13 mm.
Switch on the clipper using the on/off sliding switch located on top of the clipper and the blades will start to move and the green LED will illuminate.
Starting at the nape of the neck, hold the clipper with the teeth of the clipper pointing upwards and the comb guide is flat on the head. Slowly move the clipper upwards, through the hair, and towards the front of the head in a forward sweeping motion. Once at the front of the head, engage the opposite blade in a backward sweeping motion to move from the front of the head, back to the nape of the neck.
Continue with this sweeping motion, running from the nape of the neck to the front of the head until you reach an even length all over.
To tidy longer hairs around the ears and neckline, simply remove the comb guide and use the blade for neatening edges and shaping sideburns.
Only apply gentle pressure. Never force the clipper – if resistance is experienced lift clipper away from the head, empty hair from the clipper and resume clipping.
If using on areas where there are folds of skin, ensure the skin is stretched taught prior to cutting hair in this area.
If you experience any discomfort stop using immediately.
If you require a grade 0 cut, the clipper can be used without a comb guide attached.
