Andis Pulse ZR Cordless Clipper: Review & Buyer’s Guide
If you prefer, you can go straight to viewing the Andis Pulse ZR Cordless Clipper here:
- Andis Pulse ZR II 5-Speed Detachable Blade Cordless Clipper Kit (on Chewy)
- Andis Pulse ZR Cordless Clipper (on Amazon)
You can buy additional Andis CeramicEdge Blades (on Amazon) for the Pulse ZR. At the moment, it only comes with a 10 blade when you buy on Amazon. Check the inclusions at your time of purchase.
Usually most people start with a 10 blade and a 7 FC blade and go from there. You might also buy a cheap detachable clipper comb set instead of the blades
Andis Pulse ZR Cordless Clipper: Review
A cordless clipper for pet grooming
Designed for heavy duty pet clipping, but in reality it’s better for light to medium thickness coats
Has a detachable blade
Has 5 speeds – and you can adjust the speed between 2500 to 4500 strokes per minute
Motor is a 100-240V motor, and is 50-60Hz
The battery is a lithium ion battery, which lasts 2 hours per charge. You can get multiple cuts on multiple pets out of the battery before it dies usually
This clipper works with UltraEdge® CeramicEdge® and Show Edge™ blades
The clipper weighs 1.10 lbs, so is lightweight
The length of the clipper is 8.13 inches
In the kit you get the clipper, charger stand, Tube of Blade Oil and Cord Pack Adapter
On Amazon, you also get a Ceramic edge size 10 blade (but check this at the time of purchase as inclusions can change)
The battery is built into the clipper and is not removable. You can’t have a backup charged battery ready to put into the clipper unless you buy a second clipper
With some models, the charger can be inconsistent in recognising or charging the clipper
With some models, the motor or battery can become inconsistent after a few months or a year and cut in and out
You have to buy extra clipper blades separately – at present you only get a 10 blade with it
The clipper is good when it works. It appears there may be some issues with the charger, motor and battery on some models – which is not what you would expect for the price. It’s probably better to look elsewhere for the time being until whatever is causing these issues for some users to be resolved. The warranty is a limited 1 year warranty at the moment, and you would probably expect it to be a bit longer than that for the price.
