The Philips Norelco Beard trimmer comes with a lot of features which make it a very unique product. The major feature of this device is that it doesn’t come with separate attachments that make a lot of mess, instead it comes with 10 different settings of length of hair and you can choose the best suited option and trim your beard according to it. This feature can be very useful to maintain your stubble as it is not possible to maintain a small sized beard with other trimmers. It also comes with a comb locking feature that makes sure that the comb doesn’t move randomly messing up the beard. This feature is also new and wasn’t found in the previous versions and it makes the device much more stable.

It also comes with the skin friendly feature as the blade in this trimmer comes with rounded tips which feel soft and comfortable when pressed against the skin and don’t cause any kind of pain. The trimmer’s blades are very high quality and made up of premium chromium steel. These blades not only promise high quality shaving but they also promise to last very long without getting rusty or ruined. These blades also come with self-sharpening feature which is a completely new feature in the Philip Norelco line of trimmers and this self-sharpening helps the blades to remain sharp and always on their best. With self-sharpening, the blades also don’t require oiling after use and this could help save all the extra money that is spent on the blade oil.

The maintenance of this device is also very easy and inexpensive. As we mentioned earlier that with this trimmer you don’t need to buy oil, so this leads to an incredible decrease in maintenance charges and it is also very easy to maintain as it is washable and you can always clean it with water after using it.

The Philips Norelco Beard trimmer can also be operated without a cord as it supports a large and powerful battery designed to last longer while operating the powerful motor inside the trimmer. With the cordless feature, shaving is made more comfortable as there is no need to be close to a plug and you can shave anywhere you feel like. The battery of the Norelco beard trimmer lasts at least 30 minutes on a full charge which is good for a trimmer as powerful as this as 30 minutes are more than enough for a single shave and you can put it on charge when not shaving. A full charge takes approximately 10 hours on this device.
