Oster Volt vs Pro 3000i: Summary, & Which One To Get

You can find the similarities and differences and other main features of each cordless clipper below, which may sway your decision on which clipper to get.

However, the biggest factor that might sway your decision is that the Volt runs at a slower speed of 2400 strokes per minute compared to the 3000i’s 3000 strokes per minute.

Oster say that this slower speed is designed to keep the blades cooler when you are clipping through matted and very thick fur (where the blades can heat up if they have to work harder to get through the matting to stay at the same speed rate).

So, definitely consider blade speed and potential for blades to heat up in your decision.
