Benefits of the Norelco Beard Trimmer

The Blades Offer Precise Cuts

Most men’s hair clippers in the market will irritate your skin because of the degree of their cuts. Usually, this is because their blades are not designed to offer a perfect cut that will prevent the remnant hair from causing your skin some level of irritation. However, this men’s hair trimmer comes with blades that will offer you a 0.5 mm precision during a cut preventing your skin from irritation.

Blades Designed with Rounded Tips

Irritation on your skin can also be blamed on the design of the blades. If the blades are sharp at the tips, they will end up poking into your skin and causing some irritation. The Norelco Beard Trimmer, however, comes with blades that are rounded on the tips so that the sharp parts only come into contact with the hair you want to eliminate and not your skin.

The Blades are Self-Sharpening

The blades on this men’s hair trimmer will offer you a consistent sharpness throughout the period of use. So if you have had an experience with blades that become blunt after a period of using them, then you have a perfect solution in theses blades. And the good part is that you don’t need to worry about sharpening them as they’re designed to self-sharpen the more you use them.

It is powered by rechargeable Batteries

Men’s hair trimmers which have replaceable batteries are quite costly in the long run. This trimmer evades that by offering a battery that you can recharge every time you want to trim your beard. The battery is a lithium-ion based battery that will only require you to charge it for at most an hour before you can use it.

It Can Be Used Cordless Or Corded

If the trimmer does not have any charge, you have the option of using it while plugged in. This capability can be a big time saver especially when you have to rush somewhere yet you discover that your trimmer does not have some charge. But if it has some charge on it, you have the option of using it cordless where you can use it for up to 2 hours if it were fully loaded.

Detachable Head that is Easy To Clean

Cleaning of the head of men’s hair clippers after use is usually one of the most stressful things you can ever face afterward. But this trimmer ensures you don’t have to go through all that as it comes with a detachable head that you can remove then rinse in water. And all this will take you very few minutes to complete.

Blades Do not Require any Maintenance

If you are tired of using trimmers that require constant maintenance of the blades, then this men’s hair trimmer is just perfect for you. It comes with maintenance-free blades which mean that the trimmer is always ready for use. You don’t need to go out there purchasing oils to keep the blades in top shape.

Handle designed to offer a Firm Grip

The design of men’s hair clipper is also vital. It is what will determine whether you can hold the trimmer at the perfect angle to get the perfect shave. Well, the manufacturers of this product understand this too well, and so they have ensured that the design of this men’s hair clipper will offer you a very firm grip that will ensure you will achieve the results you want.

Cons associated with the Norelco Beard Trimmer.

- Like most competing models in this category, this product is not waterproof. So if it accidentally comes into contact with water that will be the end of it which is something that can prove costly in the long run as you seek replacements.

- Even though the head of the product is easy to clean, the insides are very hard to clean and can be a very big pain after it has accumulated some dirt. 

- It can also give you a patchy shave if you are not that well versed with using it. So it requires someone with some level of experience using such products to be able to get the ideal cut out of it.


On the back of all the benefits that come with using this product, I think it is good for giving your beared a good trim. However, it comes with several disadvantages like it not being waterproof, not being easy to clean on the insides and not being easy to use. I recommend it but after careful consideration of these cons associated with it.
