The OCTANE clipper delivers more power than any other cordless clipper. They provide more than twice the amount of running time of regular batteries so the clipper can run from haircut to haircut without having to be recharged. Maintain constant power throughout the charge. Regular batteries start losing power as soon as they start running. The OCTANE clipper holds steady power for as long as the battery runs, without torque reduction in the motor. There is no battery memory. Unlike other battery technologies, Li+ION batteries can be charged and discharged without affecting their life.
