PREPPING YOUR

NEW TOOL

CHARGING

The All-Rounder is so easy to use. But before you start using your new tool, you must take the time to charge it overnight for 16 hours before its first use. Your new tool comes with a small amount of charge, but the initial charge will ensure your new tool will have optimum power performance to give you smooth fast cutting, every time.

- Before using for the first time, fully charge your new tool continuously for 16 hours.

- Maximum battery capacity will only be reached after 3 charging & discharging cycles.

The All-Rounder can be charged whilst standing in the charging/storage stand or without the stand.

To charge the trimmer whilst in the stand, remove the trimmer, attachments and accessories from the stand. Hold the recharging/storage stand upside down and insert the small plug on the charging adaptor into the hole on the base of the stand and push firmly into position. Then, route the cord through the channel on the base of the stand.

Place your thumb on the hinged back cover and push the cover over the charging adaptor plug (to the right) to secure the cord and plug in place (Fig.1).

To charge the trimmer without the stand, simply insert the small plug on the charging adaptor into the hole on the base of the trimmer.

- The red charging LED indictor light on your new tool will illuminate when correctly connected to the mains power.

- A full charge will supply 40 minutes cordless runtime.

- To maintain optimum capacity of the rechargeable battery, it is highly recommended to fully discharge & then recharge your tool for 16 hours every 3 months.

- Subsequent recharges will only require 8 hours charging time.

USING THE 32MM TRIMMING BLADE

The 32mm trimming blade has been designed for body, face & hair trimming. It’s also ideal for stubble & beard shaping.

The following comb guides are for use with the 32mm trimming blade:

• 6 position comb guide (0.5mm to 3mm) for short or shadow stubble;

• 7 position comb guide (2mm to 14mm) for keeping your beard in top shape; and the

• 7 position comb guide (3mm to 15mm) for trimming head & body hair.

The 32mm trimming blade can also be used without any comb guide attached to outline, and for an even closer finish.

Using the 32mm trimming blade to outline

The 32mm trimming blade without a comb guide attached will cut roughly to a length of 0.5 mm.

1. Do not attach a comb guide.

2. Hold the trimmer upside down with the blade facing downwards, yet flat against the skin.

3. Move the trimmer gently downwards in small strokes around the edge of the area you wish to outline.

4. Having defined the outline, hold the trimmer with the blades pointing upwards, yet flat against the skin and move the trimmer upwards against the direction of hair growth. This will trim the unwanted hair adjacent to the outline.

BE CAREFUL NOT TO APPLY EXCESS PRESSURE

TO THE BLADE, AS THIS MAY DAMAGE THE BLADE

AND CAN RESULT IN INJURY TO THE SKIN DURING

TRIMMING.

THE ALL-ROUNDER / TOOL TIPS

USING THE FOIL SHAVER

The foil shaver has been specially designed for shaving all bodyzones - chest and stomach area, back and shoulders, underarms, legs and the groin area. It will leave the skin feeling clean, smooth and refreshed. The dual independent trimmers on either side of the foil shaver are designed to shorten long hair and allow you to easily achieve precise shaving.

The 100% waterproof design makes it ideal for shaving body hair in the shower, for no mess grooming or as a dry shave. You can use shaving aids such as foam or gel with this product to achieve a cleaner, more refreshing shave.

13

THE ALL-ROUNDER / TOOL TIPS

PREPARING THE SKIN

Before using the foil shaver, make sure that the skin is perfectly clean and free from grease or cream. Exfoliating the skin once or twice a week before shaving helps to maintain healthy and fresh skin, but it also helps to:

• Prevent hairs from growing under the skin, resulting in in-grown hairs

• Remove dead skin cells and refine the texture of your skin, resulting in a closer shave

• repare your skin to help it absorb skin care products.

We recommend exfoliating ideally the day before, as well as just before shaving.

This will help straighten the hair and make it easier to shave. Avoid exfoliating just after shaving.

Having a warm shower before use will also help to soften the hair.

For optimum results, it is recommended to trim the hair first if it is quite long using the

32mm trimming blade.

1. Attach the foil shaving head.

2. Switch the trimmer on by sliding the On/Off switch upwards so that the “I”marking is visible.

3. Always keep the shaver perpendicular to the surface to be shaved.

4. Always work with both hands: stretch the skin with one hand and move the trimmer with the other hand.

5. Slowly move the shaver, exerting light pressure. As a precaution, the operation of the trimmer may slow down substantially if the foil shaving head is pressed too hard against the skin.

WET SHAVING

1. Thoroughly wet the body with warm water and apply foam or gel. This will help to lubricate the body and enable the shaver to glide across then skin for increased closeness and reduced irritation.

2. Move the shaver over the skin, applying minimal pressure only as this allows the hairs to be shaved much more quickly and cleanly. Do not press.

3. For the closest shave, shave against the direction of hair growth, or with the hair growth, whichever is preferred, but remember that hair grows in different directions.

4. Tilt the shaver up and down whilst shaving for best results.

5. Rinse the shaver regularly whilst shaving, keeping the TRIMMER running whilst rinsing the head for faster cleaning.

THE ALL-ROUNDER / TOOL TIPS

USING THE 7MM PRECISION BLADE

The 7mm precision blade is for the finishing touches on your stubble, beard, sideburns & eyebrows.

1. Switch the trimmer on.

2. Gently move the blade through the area of hair you wish to trim.

3. To make it easier to define those finishing touches, flip the trimmer over so that you can make it even easier working with the blade close to the skin.

4. The trimmer will work most efficiently when cutting through hair at its own speed.

5. For increased trimming performance, press and hold the turbo button, this is often necessary for thicker areas of hair.

6. Never switch the appliance off whilst in the hair.

USING THE ROTARY BLADE

The rotary blade has been designed for trimming those hard to reach places like nose & ear hair. No nicks, cuts or pulling.

1. Attach the rotary trimming blade.

2. Switch the trimmer on.

3. Insert the trimmer into the nose or ear and gently move the trimmer in a circular motion.

4. Always turn the trimmer on BEFORE you insert into your nostril or ear canal to avoid painfully snagging hairs.

5. Never insert the trimmer more than 5-6mm into your nose or ears.

6. Never turn the trimmer off whilst in the nose and ears.

TRIMMER CLEANING &

MAINTENANCE

Because the trimmer blades are precision made for a very special use, they should always be handled with care. To ensure long-lasting performance of your trimmer, it is important to clean the blades + the comb guides after every use.

To remove the trimming blade, follow the instructions at CHANGING THE

ATTACHMENT HEADS.

1. First, take the cleaning brush and brush away any loose hairs that have collected in the blades.

2. Rinse the trimming blades under running water. The comb guides can also be rinsed separately.

3. After cleaning, make sure to shake off excess water and dry the head of the trimming blades + comb guide before replacing onto the handle.

4. Do not disassemble the blades.

• Do not use hot water to clean the attachments.

• Dry immediately and shake off excess water, then dry with a cloth.

• Whilst the power handle is waterproof, it is recommended not to immerse unduly in hot soapy water.

OIL FREE TRIMMING BLADES, THE WAY IT

SHOULD BE

The blades of your trimmer have a reservoir pad for releasing the necessary amount of oil for proper operation, time after time.

Nevertheless, it is recommended that the reservoir pad be refilled occasionally when you notice cutting performance is not as high.

To remove the trimming blade, follow the instructions at CHANGING

BETWEEN THE TRIMMING BLADE. Squeeze a few drops of oil onto the reservoir pad (Fig. 3). Then replace the blades on the trimmer.

THE ALL-ROUNDER / TOOL TIPS

KEEPING YOUR FOIL SHAVER IN TIP TOP SHAPE

To remove the foil shaver head, follow the instructions at CHANGING THE

ATTACHMENT HEADS.

1. To make cleaning easier, the foil of the shaving head is removable.

2. To remove it, press the fasteners on its sides using your thumb and your index finger and lift it up.

BE CAREFUL NOT TO PUSH ON THE FOILS, THEY ARE

DELICATE AND CAN EASILY BE DAMAGED.

3. Rinse the shaver cutter and foil frame under running water or in a sink. Do not use hot water. Use only warm or cold water.

4. After wet cleaning, allow the foil frame and cutters to air-dry before closing the foil frame and shaver head. The cutter can also be cleaned with a cleaning brush.

5. Replace shaver head back onto the handle until it clicks into place. Wipe the surface of the main unit with a dry towel. Do not dry the foil area. Let the shaving head air-dry.

NEVER use thinners, other solvents or any harsh cleaners.

6. Once the foil shaver is dried, carefully place the protective cap on.
