How long do the batteries last?

I bought it < > months ago, use it once a week and I'm still on my original batteries

what is the closest length option?

The closest length option is #1 on the adjustable trimmer guide and that makes for a length equal to the morning after a "long night out" or some would call it "the edgy look". If you were blonde, it would be Don Johnson's "Miami Vice" look. I personally think this is too short. Maybe like me you want to get creative and adjust the guides and give them a different length - the length you personally want. I use a standard women's emory board or hardware emory paper and sand the trimmer guides to a different length. This is very quick and easy to do (10 minutes) but test the length repeatedly as you shorten the length to make sure you don't go TOO far because if you make it TOO short you won't be able to do it again - there is no "redo".

what type of batteries dose it take

2 AA batteries

Can this be used for the body?

I have only used it for my beard, but for that I need the detachable head. There are blades that would cut very closely and, if I remember correctly, they can be used for other areas of the neck and face where you don't want a beard at all. The long and short of it is probably "yes", you could use this on your body.

How is 9906-717 different from 5537-2701 ?

9906-717 appears to be the newer model. It has slightly different moldings and does not come with a bag like the 5537-2701. The newer version fits very comfortably in the hand and is easy to use due to the more ergonomic shape. I like that it runs on AA batteries. I have enough rechargeable batteries and a smart charger. It's not well marked how the batteries are placed so once I figured it out I used a sharp object to put a big "+" to guide me. Easy to fix! For the price this can't be beat! Also compatible with older Wahl moldings. If you're replacing an older Wahl of a similar size, like I did, you may be able to use your favorite guard with the new trimmer.

Can I use this to shave

Hmm, I wouldn't do it. You might, but there are definitely better options for shaving. It would probably come close enough (I use it for my husband's neckline), but the head just doesn't move the same way most electric razors do and it would be a little hard to do the curves of your face.

what is the longest length option?

The length of your beard is determined by shifting the meter to a number between < > to < >. The maximum length seems to be about 5/8 inch.

Can this be flipped over and used on skin without cutting/bleeding?

Yes. In fact, that's what I do every time as part of my routine. It won't give you an extremely close shave, but it won't catch, cut or bleed either. The key is to keep the blades oiled with the supplied oil. I've been using these for many years and wouldn't want anything else.

How good is this trimmer at trimming behind the ears AND getting a straight level cut behind the neck?

The trimmer is small enough and manoeuvrable to trim around the ears. You can get a straight line on beard, mustache or neckline with practice, it takes a few passes to get a really clean cut. Remember that it runs on batteries.

Is this trimmer washable?

Sorry, no, the trimmer is not washable. The blades can be cleaned with the brush included in the kit. The blades and the appliance must not be rinsed with water.
