The question of the durability for shavers and trimmers is a complex one. This is because of the many aspects in the usage of the trimmers that are related to the issue. First is the question what the lifespan of the device is supposed to be. This is the expected number of years that the manufacturers of the trimmer believe that it will be able to serve you without complications. Of course this varies from brand to brand, bearing in mind the fact that variations in the form of materials used and the specific components included in the trimmers differs from one manufacturer to the rest. Then there is the issue to do with general care and maintenance. How you take care of your trimmer and the replacements that you make; if need be; determines how durable your trimmer will be. Thirdly, the general way in which you handle your trimmer also does affect how long it will be in the right conditions to serve you.
All these aspects are important in determining the degree to which your Wahl 9918-6171 Trimmer will be durable. This happens in several ways. For example, this trimmer is made up of far much superior materials and components as compared to many other trimmers in the market.

Then there is the general way in which the trimmer can be used. Basically, one can use the trimmer when charging directly or not. The internal battery, which lasts for about an hour when fully charged, remains strong for two or so years. This is a long time when compared to the time to charge other trimmers in the market. Also, the storage of the different components of the trimmer is important in determining the length of time it will remain in good condition. When all the components are stored within the stand, which also doubles up as the connection point during charging, their safety will be assured. This is one way of ensuring that the components of the trimmer are kept away from possible damage.
