Choosing a Good Beard Trimmer – Factors to Consider

*  Battery Life is Important

Before you buy an electronic beard trimmer, ensure to check the time it takes for it to charge and the time in which it operates before requiring another charge. This is especially important when you forget to shave in the morning and have an important meeting before 10am. A good trimmer should be able to serve you in such an instance. Otherwise, it’s not worth investing on.

* Check out the Attachments

Just like hair clippers, beard and mustache trimmers come with attachments; which enable you to maintain an attractive facial hairstyle – these attachments are useful for styling your sideburns or for maintaining a very precise facial look. It’s better to go for a unit that comes with multiple attachments for trimming nose, ear and eyebrow hair. These attachments must also connect to the unit with no trouble. The main reason you need these trimmer attachments is to get a clean and attractive look with your beard anywhere you find yourself; home, hotel room, car, office, etc.

* Rechargeable or Not?

When buying a trimmer, you have the option of buying a model that comes with a cord and can be plugged in the mains, or you can opt for one that comes with a rechargeable battery and can operate for over an hour before requiring another charge. The latter option happens to be the best as it offers you more flexibility and control over the device and you no longer have to worry about cords entangling you or otherwise. This makes it easy to travel with your trimmer in cases where you have to leave town for a couple of days.

* What is the Blade Made of?

Blades used by facial trimmers have evolved over the years. Aside steel blades, modern blades are titanium coated, which makes them last a while. In the same vein, some beard and mustache trimmers come with self-sharpening blades. This simply means they sharpen themselves and will deliver high performance for many years to come. You really don’t have to bother about changing blades or sharpening them.

* A rotating head or not?

Older models have a stationary head on top and while they operate as required, the process could lead to itchy and sore irritation, depending on your skin type. You can get past this by getting a mustache trimmer that has a rotating head. Newer trimmer models (particularly those from Philips Norelco and Braun) come with movable heads that reduce the risk of irritating your skin while cutting closer than any other trimmer before it.

What about Locking Length Settings?

The locking length settings enable you to lock in the blades of your moustache and beard trimmer at certain lengths (usually from one millimetre up) and achieve the most accurate shaving and trimming experience. You need this feature if you try to make your facial hair fade gradually.
 Your Turn to Decide

Now that you have a lit of the best beard trimmers in the market, it is left for you to go out there and get one for yourself. Hopefully, you do find this list helpful in making an informed choice. In choosing a shearer, my only advice is to know the features you want and go for a product that has them. It’s as simple as that. Don’t allow anybody to talk you into buying a product you really don’t need. Just get online and read up!

These are the best 10 beards trimmers many consumers recommend.  There are others trimmers which one or two consumers said its the best,  but majority chose these five.

Feel free to check out these trimmers on Amazon and tell us what you think.
