Cordless trimmers commonly referred to as line trimmers provide a convenient way of grass trimming around your garden. This is made possible simply because they are fixed with durable and portable batteries that allow easy mobility. This is unlike their counterparts, the electric corded trimmers, that bind you to the closest electrical socket. They thus do not have a cord, or any untangling extension leads or power cables that would otherwise tie you down.
They combine the unique characteristics of both the electric corded trimmer and the convenience of a petrol strimmer. What is even amazing is that they come at a cost friendly price. This may range from £50 up to £500. Going for a cheaper one may lead to limited functionality and they have less power compared to corded trimmers that range at the same price.
You also have to keep in mind that they have a limited operation time since the battery will need to recharge in between uses. The battery technology industry has made recent developments that allow greater running time for the trimmers and also reduction of recharging times. This makes it easy to find a model in the market that will suit and accommodate your needs in regards to your garden.
The best cordless trimmers come in handy with a variety of battery sizes. The new generation mainly has 36V. 40V, or possibly 56V lithium-ion batteries. A majority of the batteries will state both the rating of amp hour(Ah) and also the voltage. It goes without saying that the greater the voltage and Ah rating, then the more powerful and long lasting the battery will be.
On another note, batteries with greater Ah ratings may tend to be heavy and large thus may making the whole gadget to be cumbersome and heavy. A proper battery should at least operate for around 20 to 30 minutes per charge. Consider looking for a battery with a shorter recharge period in the region of one hour to at most four hours. Another alternative would be to purchase a secondary battery for your trimmer.
Injuries such as cutting yourself on your feet are less likely to happen due to the fact that it has a longer shaft and the head is further away from your feet. Safety precautions should always be taken when operating these devices.
This is just but an overview and guide on all you need to know about cordless strimmers and how they are of great assistance when it comes to grass trimming.
