    When I disconnect my cordless magic clippers from the power cord,(even after a full charge) the motor slows down till it completely stops. What may be the cause of this and how can I fix this?

      Hey Jon, this is likely happening because of the battery. I’ve noticed on the cordless Wahls the overall battery life doesn’t last as long as the manufacture suggest. I recommend if you purchased this unit within the last year to send it to the manufacture for repair. Wahl products carry a one year manufacture warranty. Or you can purchase a new battery a replace it yourself. Hope this was helpful.
