Wahl Professional Animal KM Cordless Clipper: Review


The KM Cordless clipper is Wahl’s first detachable blade cordless clipper.

It has a brushless motor like the KM10 which allows it to run corded, but also has a lithium ion battery for cordless capabilities. It’s a 2 in 1 clipper.

It also has two speeds of 3000 and 3700 strokes per minute, for lighter and heavier grooming.

In this Wahl Professional Animal KM Cordless Clipper Review we outline the other main features and some potential drawbacks to this clipper so you can get a good idea of who may and may not be for.

Let’s take a closer look at it!

A 2 in 1 corded and cordless animal clipper for dogs, cats, horses & livestock

You can use the clipper with the included charger cord plugged directly into the clipper

When corded it runs off the brushless motor

You can also use the clipper cordless with it’s lithium ion battery

The battery lasts roughly 2 hours and takes roughly 1 hour to charge

It also has a Quick Charge feature that provides 15 extra minutes of clipping for every 10 minutes it charges

The clipper is a 2 speed clipper – choose from 3000 and 3700 strokes per minute

Has Constant Speed Control technology that keeps torque and power consistent as needed

The unit measures 7.5” x 2” x 2” inches, and weighs 13.6 oz.

Comes with a Wahl #10 Ultimate Series Blade

Compatible with Wahl’s detachable Ultimate series blades 

Has a 5-year limited warranty – make sure you check the warranty duration and conditions when you buy

The whole kit comes with the clipper, a #10 Ultimate Competition Series blade, a 10-foot charging cord, a cleaning brush, blade oil, and instruction book.


For USA use only – not for international use

The clippers are not cheap

Although the motor is powerful with good torque, it would be good to have a higher stroke speed for the top speed, up somewhere around the 4000 SPM mark. Although this would mean the clipper blades might heat up more quickly so it’s understandable Wahl have kept the speed down and the torque up


The clipper is not cheap, but it is very unique with the fact it has a brushless motor corded operation and a lithium ion cordless operation 2 in 1 capability. The motor is powerful and can be used for heavier coats. Worth the money if you want a 2 in 1 clipper – just make sure you know the warranty and return duration and conditions in case you have any issues. The Andis AGC2 UltraEdge 2 Speed Pet Clipper is also worth a look as a 2 speed animal clipper alternative, although the Andis is a corded clipper only.
