Wahl Introduces Lithium Ion Pet Clipper

-- First-of-its-kind consumer clipper puts power to groom in hand --    

STERLING, ILL. (March 12, 2013) – Wahl, the company that makes the number-one selling pet clipper worldwide, is proud to introduce the Lithium Ion Pro Series Rechargeable Pet Clipper Kit. Thanks to Wahl’s latest innovation, for the first time ever, owners can harness the power of lithium ion when grooming their pets -- giving them the power and freedom for anytime, anywhere use.  

In 2009, Wahl introduced the first facial hair trimmer to utilize the power of lithium ion technology. Since then the company has brought this power to a host of products, including the Lithium Ion Clipper and Lithium Ion Shaver. Now, pet owners can enjoy the long-lasting power and superior cutting performance this technology offers.  

The new Lithium Ion Pro Series Rechargeable Pet Clipper Kit was created with owners in mind, offering up to two hours of uncompromised cutting in a single charge. It also brings more power and a better grooming experience to the table. Features include:

•    Three times the power than standard pet clippers
•    15-minute quick charge for eight minutes of use
•    Holds a charge for up to one year
•    Heavy-duty rotary motor that is powerful yet quiet

Wahl’s self-sharpening high-carbon steel blades were specifically designed for animals and have the ability to cut through the fur of even the thickest of breeds without any pulling or snagging. Its ergonomic, lightweight design provides more control while cutting at various angles, minimizing fatigue on the hands and arms. Because it is cordless, owners and their pets avoid getting tangled up in the process and the quiet motor also helps sooth any pet anxiety or fears throughout the process.

“A powerful, long lasting clipper is important to pet owners,” said Shay Moeller, product manager for Wahl’s pet division. “Depending upon the size or breed of your pet, grooming can take longer than the 30 to 40 minutes when using standard rechargeable clippers. Lithium ion can provide up to two hours of run time, which provides the peace of mind of knowing you can take your time and groom your pet wherever it’s most comfortable for them.”

The Lithium Ion Pro Series Rechargeable Pet Clipper Kit includes a hard storage case, color guide combs, scissors, blade oil and cleaning brush. It is available for a MSRP of $69.99 at retailers nationwide.

In addition to the Lithium Ion Pro Series Rechargeable Pet Clipper Kit, Wahl provides a full line of pet products, including a new collection of all-natural shampoos, pet clipper kits, trimmer kits and popular grooming tools such as a shedding brush, slicker brush and soft brush and nail cutters.
