    How do you take rubber piece off handle

    Billy Joe Furr - crwdns2853112:0crwdne2853112:0

    It appears the friction of your skin against the rubber grip can pull it down from the top enough that you can see how to peel it off.

    How do you remove the rubber grip??

    octavia197424 - crwdns2853112:0crwdne2853112:0

    Pardon the analogy,

    … but it's on there a little bit like a condom.

    Start at the Top of the trimmer.

    Use your fingernail to pry back the lip of the rubber.

    Then start rolling it down the handle.

    Toward the end you may just have to brute force - shove it off.

    This battery has stamped terminals that are soldered to the PCB. Additional steps and tools need to be added to reflect the soldering work that needs to be done to replace this battery.

    Agreed. The battery for my Wahl also has stamped terminals soldered to the PCB. I wish battery replacement for mine were as easy as the one reflected here.

    Wifes Wahl Sterling trimmer (similar) got dropped and broke the negative tab In half which is also stamped to the battery as mentioned above. Easy resolder job.

    Sam Houston - crwdns2853112:0crwdne2853112:0

    I would like to know where you find the replacement battery ? I havent opened the trimmer as of yet so i have no idea plus after searching a whole entire day i found nothing and 1 battery seller mentioned to call Wahl then i found this site that mentions how easy it is to solder, well i wouldnt know cause so far the replacement battery must be a secret.

Great guide but I made the mistake of buying just a standard 3.7v 750mAh battery to try and fit into the trimmer. The battery in the trimmer has metal terminals "stamped" to each end, so the terminals can't be unsoldered from the battery. I was hoping to just unsolder the existing battery and then solder in the new one but no such luck. New trimmer for me now lol

Dean Miller - crwdns2853112:0crwdne2853112:0

DM, I used a dremel tool with a thin grinding wheel to cut off the metal terminals just below the stamp point. After cutting off the metal terminals below the stamp point, approximately 1/4" inch of the terminals still remained which was just enough to connect the new battery to the remaining metal terminals with a small dab of solder. Little bit more work than I was anticipating but the trimmer works like new again. Found the 3.7v 750mAh battery at onlybatteries.com for $5 plus about $5.94 for shipping. Hope this helps for you DIYers!!

Is it an 18650 size?

David Drasser -

To Nathan, DM and DL, I was with Nathan until I read about soldering a dremel (which i I own) and cutting off the metal terminals below the stamp point. Can any of you fine 'fixers' show pictures along with the soldering, dremel, cutting, terminals description? I want my Chromado to work like new too! Thanks in advance, Ka

Ka - crwdns2853112:0crwdne2853112:0

I couldnt get the button section off, i didnt know the rubber button grommet comes out and there is a single screw holding this on, it comes off easy after that. then there are two screws hidden undernearth it and it comes apart nice and easy.

Chris Dowling - crwdns2853112:0crwdne2853112:0

Just to add - there was no need to remove or trim the existing battery tags. Use needle-nose pliers and gently pry them off. The welding joints should peel away leaving behind the tags which you can use against your existing battery :)

Yasin Abbas - crwdns2853112:0crwdne2853112:0

I found AA size 3.7v 750mAh Lion battery with tabs, on onlybatteries.com for $5.29 but shipping was $7.50 which is a rip off, but I went ahead and ordered because I hate to toss out a perfectly good clipper with a bad battery when it seems to be fairly easy to replace.

Alan Nevermind - crwdns2853112:0crwdne2853112:0

Battery came today. It took me 20 minutes to change it. My clipper is a little newer, it has a rubber grip, slide the rubber grip off carefully as not to tear it, there are 3 tabs on each side, carefully pry with a screwdriver and the 2 halves come apart. The rest is exactly as above the battery came with tabs, use a solder iron and solder removal tool to in solder the old battery, and replace with the new one careful to mind the polarity. Bend the tabs and solder in place. Snap it back together, slip the rubber grip back on, and good as new.

Alan Nevermind - crwdns2853112:0crwdne2853112:0

what battery do you guys recommend? can’t wait to crack it open and fix it

jbutlerzx - crwdns2853112:0crwdne2853112:0

Does anyone have more pics of how the charging port is mounted on the boards? I want to replace my charging port with one of these.

Then I can do away with the walwart and charge via USB.

CJ Gorrell - crwdns2853112:0crwdne2853112:0

As a minimalist, you might be interested in some small trimming scissors instead of this. About 1/5 the weight of the charger and about 1/10 the weight of the clipper. Plus, as an engineer, you can appreciate the additional skill required to get a good trim using scissors, resulting in more MacGyver points to you as well.

Geekstar -

The batteries are in a blue waterproof sleeve. How do I remove them, or what is the procedure after cutting at solder area?
