Top quality beard trimmers in 2014
Having a beard is nice and all, with its impressions of either a badass attitude or sagely wisdom. But a man must know when too long is too long. He would have to give the beard additional care if he plans to grow it even longer. Even worse, the beard can become a breeding ground for dandruff. Shaving is the usual course of action a man takes to remove his beard. But even with advanced technologies in manual shaving razors, there are still the following possibilities: he may accidentally cut himself or slice a pimple, he may not cut off all the beard hair in one fell stroke, and he may realize that the beard will grow back rapidly after a few days. This is where electric shaving razors and beard trimmers come into the picture. They not just automate and speed up the shaving process, but also leave the skin entirely untouched – if the user is skilled enough.

The Philips Norelco BT5275/41 5100 Beard Trimmer has a sleek blue and silver design that is suitable for a man’s personal sensibilities. Its headlining feature is the combination of a high-performance trimmer and a precision trimmer into one shaving head. This combination makes the BT5275/41 5100 perfect for general shaving purposes, and when both thick hairs and bushes of hair around the ears need to be removed. Both trimmers are made of chromium steel, eliminating the need for frequent oiling or maintenance and ensuring the safety of the skin. To further guide the man in getting the precise shave he wants, the BT5275/41 5100 also has adjustable wheel locks to choose the desired length as well as an LED display that clearly displays such choice. The provided battery lasts for one hour after an hour’s worth of charging. Customer reviews are generally positive. The trimmer is lightweight, has a whisper-quiet operation, charges quickly, and makes it impossible to draw blood. The only things that customers did not like about the BT5275/41 5100 are the next-to-impossible removal of the beard comb once it is attached onto the trimmer and the lack of a travel pouch, which is bad for a portable trimmer like this.
For those who do not want their sinks to be clogged due to accumulated beard hair, the Philips Norelco QT4070/41 Beard Trimmer 7300 is ideal. The headlining feature is a vacuum built onto the shaving head to capture the cut hair. Sure, the trimmer is not washable as a result, but some men will be glad that they can save on water. The QT4070/41 also has the following features: maintenance-free blades, a bright LED display that clearly shows the 18 trimming settings, a Turbo Power button that hastens the cutting and vacuum fan speeds, and a lithium-ion battery that lasts 50 minutes on a single charge. Customers highly praise the vacuuming feature, making the QT4070/41 one of the best beard trimmers 2014. However, they find that the guide combs that come with the trimmer are extremely sharp even for plastic combs, increasing the chances of one getting accidentally cut. The combs can also muck up the desired cutting length big-time – just by merely changing the angle of the trimmer against the skin. The result is an uneven trim.
The Panasonic Milano Series ER-GB40-S Hair & Body Trimmer has a nicely-curved body, and it is just the prelude to its versatility. As indicated in the full name, the ER-GB40-S not just takes care of beards, but also unsightly body hairs. It can do wet and dry shavings well, has a quick adjust dial to move the comb up and down in 19 different length settings, and can be easily cleaned by allowing the water from the faucet to flow into the special water drainage hole that is located on the head. Customers generally have an overwhelming positive impression of the ER-GB40-S, citing its ease of use and the employing of a charging stand. The only issue is the difficulty of oiling the shaving head. They would have to remove two screws to expose the head’s inner part that must be oiled before and after use.
The Wahl 9854-600 Lithium Ion All in One Trimmer banks its effectiveness on the lithium-ion battery it employs. The battery has the following features: a charge time of one hour, a one-minute quick charge for four minutes’ worth of shaving, a run time of more than two hours on one full charge, and double the amount of torque of a normal trimmer battery. With the 9854-600, the man will expect longer and happier shaving times. The trimmer also has four swappable blades that represent the general trimming style, the precision trimming style, the dual shaving style, and the hair clipping style. Customers’ beard trimmer reviews 2014 indicate a generally positive reception to the 9854-600, citing its long battery life. Some drawbacks include too much vibration and noise as a result of the powerful battery, a flimsy container tray, a sticky rubber grip that catch leftover hair, the tendency of the blades to rust easily in sweat, and the excessive number of accessories that the user will have to struggle with.
The Remington MB4040 Lithium Ion Powered Men’s Rechargeable Trimmer has an ergonomic design that slightly resembles a boomerang for better weight balance and is equipped with titanium-coated, precision-ground blades for extra durability. Those blades also have a self-sharpening and self-oiling characteristic to them. There are three blades available: goatee, beard, and stubble; and they can be easily swapped with the quick-release system. Combined with nine lock-in length settings, there are 27 possible trimming combinations. The head can be washable, and the lithium-ion battery lasts for 120 minutes on a full 3-hour charge. Customers are generally satisfied with MB4040, citing its guard that is not made of cheap plastic, long battery life, and the effectiveness of the blades. Complaints about the trimmer include some hairs getting stuck in the lubrication oil after use. Furthermore, discretion should be employed when using the beard trimming blade to prevent the skin from getting cut. The beard trimming blade is also not suitable for short beard hair as it will take 20 careful strokes to get all the hair out.
The Braun cruZer 6 beard&head is clearly aimed at 20-something beard fanatics who want more variety in their styles. The endless customization ability is possible with the following: a detachable beard comb that offers 6 length settings, a detachable hair comb that offers 6 length settings, an adjustable precision trimmer, and a dual-battery system that will cut through even the toughest of beards and hair. The battery can be charged for one hour for 40 minutes’ worth of use. The head breezes through wet and dry hair and it is completely washable. Customers generally laud it as the best beard trimmer 2014 for its wealth of customization options, veritable portability and light weight, the ease of swapping the combs, low vibration and noise, and the impossibility to accidentally cut oneself even without the blade guard on. Complaints about the cruZer 6 include an underpowered motor and the agony of having to do frequent head cleanings, especially with longer hairs.
The Panasonic ER224S All-in-One Hair Clipper & Beard Trimmer looks less like a beard trimmer and more like a fancy version of a vertical comb. And like the ER-GB40-S, it is versatile enough to shave even kids’ hair. Adjusting the length is as easy as turning the Quick Adjust Dial, which comes with 14 positions. The durable stainless steel blades are hypoallergenic, so the trimmer is good for those who have sensitive skin. Regarding cleaning, the ER224S is not just washable. One can also fully submerge this in water and it will still work, provided that there are no cords attached. For those who do not want to go the water route in cleaning the trimmer head, there is also a provided cleaning brush. Customers generally praise the ER224S as the best beard trimmer 2014 for its sturdiness, quietness, even trims, usability in wet situations, and a safety feature in the form of a trimmer guard that automatically turns off the trimmer once great force is applied onto it. Negative perceptions include a flimsy plastic guide or comb that can crack after a few uses if one is not careful and the frustration of keeping the trimmer regularly oiled.
