The Wahl Acadamy Cordless clipper is the best I have used. I think they are around £120 but may have come down a bit.

Wahl academy cordless all the way in our salon.
Pretty pricey to start with but they get used by 4 of us every day and weve had them a good few years.Def recommend them over other cheaper brands that just dont last the time

i have the bellisima too (think they are the same or similar to the academy arent they?)
i got it when i worked in a barbers and they were expensive to start, about 120 inc vat but the difference between them and the super taper is night and day.. they are sooo quiet in comparrison and weigh almost nothing, and obviously cordless too so you dont get tangled up with your client if your using a large barbering chair

they do the mini clipper too which i think is called bella which is next on my shopping list

the only fault i have found is that after a while the grades do become loose as they slip on as oposed to clip on like the super taper and the owner at the barbers i worked in had a grade slide off in someones hair :O but they are cheap enough to replace once a year or so anyway

Great advice and suggestions, i have checked them all out, thank you!!

thinking of buying Wahl Academy clippers, where it has a convenient thumb lever which adjusts the taper and texture without changing the blades. This appeals to me..cordless would have been a bonus though..

are there any good cordless clippers with adjustable taper and texture without changing the blades. This sounds perfect for me..i need to find one soon! :idea:
