So, about that charger.
It's a classic DC adapter that you plug into the bottom of the handle. A dock would be much more convenient, but KitchenAid chose this so they can share a charger across multiple gadgets. This blender really loses its oomph quickly when it's not fully charged, so you kinda just need to have a blender handle laying around on your counter plugged in all the time? Not ideal.
I think that's my only real complaint though. This thing won't win any awards, but it's pretty good for it's price and a cordless hand blender is a lot nicer to use than a corded one.
