My only advice would be to make sure the batteries are the very latest technology and that the blade they use are a commonly used interchangeable blade that is reliable.

Just looking at my drill today and realised I made a mistake. It is the Litium ion batteries you need or anything better. The Nickel hydride are the older ones. I am not real big at remembering names.

Thank you Ken. I did notice that the Lithium had a longer run time in the clippers. Some as long as 2 hrs..
I can't remember names either! :)

The lithium are excellent for performance, but darned expensive, and they do fail... they're capable of getting charged faster, which needs a "smart" charger, and if it detects the battery is weak, it just won't charge it.

I have the hardest time remembering PEOPLE'S names, and it's just hopeless if I'm introduced to a group

Daughter has the Andis cordless clippers. The blades are interchangable and there is a blade cooling spray you can use on them to cool them down when they get hot.
We really like them. The plastic part that runs the blade can be replaced.

We had bought our vet a set of cordless clippers years ago as a surprise and when the battery went they could not find a replacement for it.
I talked with the Andis rep and he said they are keeping everything the same so we can get replacement parts for it.

Thanks every one!
This is what I settled on with your fine advise.
Andis Pro Clip Pulse Ion- it is very simuliar to the Super AGR but with more CPM of 5,500.
The Super is 3,000 something.
The cool thing about the Pulse Ion is no different sized blades are needed. With the flip of a switch you can go back and forth between cutting depths with an adjustable blade. It is medium duty. It has a 2 hr. run time on a 1 hr. charge with the Lithium Ion battery.
They were running a special and I was able to get a free extra blade. :D

The only cons to these clippers is they do not have interchangeable blades with other brands, because of the adjustment feature. But being a popular brand like Andis, hopefully that will not become a problem later.
