How to Choose a Battery Powered Cordless Hedge Trimmer

Cordless battery powered hedge trimmers are getting better. As battery technology gets better so do the products. Some brands are more reputable than others and some batteries last longer. What do you really need to look out for?

Battery & Power

If you want a long usage time you might expect to get around 40 to 50 minutes usage from a single charge of the most popular and efficient trimmers. The battery type to look out for is certainly lithium-ion which are long lasting, fast charging and have a long life cycle. You will also want to look out for the power given by a battery. Don't just look at the volts but also the amps as both matter when it comes to power. Other things are to check if the battery is removable so you can buy an extra battery to charge while one is in use.

Dual or Single Blade

Hedge trimmers  have dual and single blade options. Dual blade trimmers are usually preferred as you can swipe side to side while using. Single blade you can only go in one direction as there is only a blade on one side. This decision is down to personal preference or specialist needs.


Buying into reputable brands means that you can enjoy high quality products and product support. Recognizable brands are usually good to go with or do your research on the brand before you buy so you know if they are reputable and trustworthy.


Some hedge trimmers have different uses than others. Some may be for light work or others heavy work. Some may have a useful feature such as swivel handle or extending handle. Make sure you know what features match your usage needs.


Some hedge trimmers are adaptable to different situations by having available attachments. Take a look and see what attachments will help with your trimming needs.

Size & Weight

As you may need to reach hard to reach areas make sure to check the size dimensions. Some are long reaching while others aren't. It's also useful to know if the trimmer is lightweight as you may strain too much if you need to hold it in awkward positions.
