All manufacturers are doing a great job providing tools barbers/stylists could have only dreamed about just a few short years ago. After testing and plugging in the numbers, we had a tie for third place, giving it to the Babyliss Snap FX and the Low Pro trimmer coming in at 16 points. We really liked the removable battery on the Snap FX and look forward to seeing what innovations they come up with in the future.

For second place, we have the new Stylecraft Instinct Trimmer with its innovative new Vector motor technology and 4-hour runtime coming in at 18 points. Extra points were awarded due to the multiple charging options, including stand and power.

The Saber Trimmer comes in at 19 points for first place from multiple charging options, including the stand, micro USB support, and the whisper-quiet digital brushless motor. Brushless motors are fairly new to the barber industry. With no brushes to wear out in the motor they are said to last longer and have less internal friction.
