Wahl Pocket Pro Review

By | September 11, 2013

wahlpocketproThe Pocket Pro is a great addition to their brilliant range of products. It is a pretty straight forward trimmer, which means it suits loads of different purposes, I’ve seen it described as suitable for everything from bikini line trimming to beard trimming to use as a hair clipper. There is also a separate model of pocket pro that is designed specifically for clipping the hair on your pets such as dogs and cats (not to be confused!)

The reason it is called the pocket pro (unsurprisingly) is its size. It will fit in your average sized pocket with ease. It is comfortable and light. Words like ‘pocket sized’ and ‘light’ usually mean one thing; it’s really flimsy! But that isn’t true with the Wahl pocket pro and it is impressively robust for such a little thing, with most buyers pleasantly surprised at the quality of what is a cheap little trimmer.

What to Expect from the Pocket Pro

Okay, I think it is important to work out your expectations before purchasing, and what you’re looking for. If you want the best beard trimmer in the world with huge amounts of features, look elsewhere, but if you’re looking for a great trimmer at a cheap price that is designed to work well whilst being highly portable, the Wahl is not going to let you down. If you have sculpted facial hair and spend a huge amount of time grooming and reshaping then the Pocket Pro might not make your life that easy, but for single length styles and those who want to stay tidy whilst traveling for example, I challenge you to find better value for money!

The Features of the Pocket Pro Include:

  • A perfect handy size for traveling, easily carried in pockets or shower bags.
  • Complete with guides in different lengths to trim to required length.
  • Brush and oil supplied in the packaging for an easy clean.
  • Great battery life making it great for travel.
  • Cordless use.
  • Sharp, stainless steel blades
  • Operates on a single AA battery (included in the packaging)


In the UK where a lot of these trimmers are sold, the retail price is currently around £10 – an absolute snip (if you’ll pardon the pun) that you can even justify buying just as a travel beard trimmer as opposed to your multi use trimmer.


In conclusion, the trimmer does what it says on the tin, and for the price range you probably wont find better. Light yet robust, sharp blades and an easy trim, with great included accessories and an easy clean up operation afterwards. The Wahl gets the thumbs up from me.
