First, the support handle won't rotate, making it awkward to handle, at least for me. The batteries last about 20 minutes each, then take several hours to recharge. That should have been a clue when they offer a second battery for free with purchase.
I purchased it in September of 2016 and thought I would at least benefit from the free spools for life. Well, they are free, six spools, shipping $8.62. The spools are about 1 and a 1/2 inches in diameter, I don't have a digital scale, but I can't say six small spools weigh very much, nor take much space. I didn't expect free shipping, but not that much for a trimmer that lacks. It's a good thing I didn't toss the corded trimmer.
Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend
