Getting the perfect beard may seem like an impossible task but with the right tools, it can be achieved. It all starts by finding the best cordless beard trimmer. A cordless beard trimmer is a portable device that lets any man groom their beards properly so they can grow it out nicely instead of shaving it thoroughly. If you are a guy who likes to have the perfect beard then you are probably in search of the best stubble trimmer. If so then you came to the right place because, in this review, we tested different beard trimmers to find the best stubble trimmer. Read on to know more about what we think about each of the professional beard trimmers that we tried.

1. Wahl 9818 Lithium Ion Plus cordless beard trimmer

Wahl 9818 Lithium Ion Plus Best Cordless Beard Trimmer 2018

 

The Wahl 9818 Lithium Ion Plus is one of the oldest beard trimmers on the market. This premium professional beard trimmer was launched in 2011 but it can still perform on almost the same level as modern beard trimmers. The cordless beard trimmer is compact, lightweight, ultra-portable, and extremely capable, which is a proof that big is not always better. Sometimes the amazing things come in small packages like this one.

When we opened its box, this beard trimmer came with a shaving head, nose hair trimmer head, detail trimmer head, power adapter, long hair comb, stubble hair comb, cleaning brush, trimmer blade lubricating oil, beard comb, and travel pouch. Its super portable, the travel pouch came in handy.

This truly is a great professional beard trimmer but it is also a capable beard trimmer for those who are just starting the journey of trimming themselves. On the outside, the Wahl 9818 Lithium Ion Plus is a shiny, metallic beard trimmer. The stainless steel body that wraps around the entire trimmer that gives it that premium appeal. When it comes to looks, its goal is to showcase its shiny body, which proves that it is gorgeous beard trimmer.

The Wahl 9818 Lithium Ion Plus is simple to use cordless beard trimmer. It has only one button on its body, the Power Button. This button is made of soft rubber so it does not take a lot of effort to press it. The ergonomic design and rubber Power Button is a great help in gripping the entire beard trimmer so it does not slip from our hand. Behind the Power Button is an LED light that turns blue when the beard trimmer is turned on or charging.

We noticed that the Wahl 9818 Lithium Ion Plus has a red plug at the bottom. This is called the travel plug and when it is inserted, the beard trimmer will not turn on. This is a nice safety touch and avoids that awkward buzzing sound from your suitcase during check-in.

Now, here comes the best part. Looking at the top of the rechargeable cordless beard trimmer, we found the T-blade trimmer. The T-blade trimmer did all the nice trimming of our beard.

Unlike other beard trimmers, the blade is made through grinding instead of stamping. Hence, it has finer blades, which allowed for detailed beard trimming.

We really liked this model. Although it is one of the older beard trimmers, it can still fight well in the battle of finding the best cordless beard trimmer.

2. Philips Norelco MG2750 Multigroom Series 3000

Phillips Norelco MG2750 Multigroom Series 3000 Cordless Beard Trimmer

One of the most popular names when it comes to the male grooming industry is Philips. So, when we found out that we were testing out the Philips Norelco MG2750 Multigroom Series 3000 in our search for the best cordless beard trimmer, we immediately became more excited. We were already excited about doing this challenge to find the best stubble trimmer but the stakes got higher after knowing that this stubble trimmer is part of the pack.

The Philips Norelco MG2750 Multigroom Series 3000 is a compact and tough multipurpose trimmer. It is part of the long line of multipurpose trimmers from this trusted brand. The Philips Norelco line is popular for having beard trimmers with tempered steel cutting blades that will not rust easily. The rechargeable trimmer is built for extreme use. It is really tough that it has impact-resistant guards and a steel reinforced motor driving power to it. This professional beard trimmer draws energy from a long-lasting lithium battery that promises up to 60 minutes of continuous run-time.

Out of its box, the trimmer has 13 different attachments. These are a full metal trimmer blade, full metal detailer blade, nose and ear hair trimmer, three hair trimming guards, three beard trimming guards, stubble guard, accessory bag, and cleaning brush.

During our hands-on testing, we experienced what its tempered steel blades were all about and they did not fall short. The tempered steel blades were sharp that trimming our beard was like cutting through butter. We never had to worry that some areas might not be properly groomed. Since the MG2750 model is a multipurpose cordless beard trimmer, we also used it to trim our head. The experience was superb and with this trimmer, grooming has become a lot easier for us.

Another thing we liked about the tempered steel blades of the Philips 3000 series is that they are reinforced to provide maximum strength. The blades are made from non-corrosive metal that they will not rust even when the beard trimmer is cleaned with water. Moreover, its motor is also reinforced with tempered steel, which is also resistant to rusting even when the multipurpose trimmer is washed with water. Even its attachments are made from non-corrosive materials, so they can be rinsed with water and will not rust. Cleaning the trimmer is easy, the accompanying brush did the trick it keeping it in tiptop shape every time.

The Mens cordless beard trimmer has proven itself that it was built to last. The impact guards on this professional beard trimmer that are made from strong fiberglass material guaranteed that they will not bend or buckle even with frequent use. Hence, the beard trimmer promised a smooth and even trim whenever we used it.

For a guaranteed even trim, we often used the narrow steel detailer. This gave us precise trim for a casino night with the LADs sipping down whiskey and smoking your finest Cuban Cigars.

Based on our experience with the Philips shaver, we can say that it is in the running for the best cordless beard trimmer. It gave us pretty much everything we needed on a portable multipurpose trimmer.

3. Remington PG6025 All-in-1 Lithium Powered Grooming Kit

Remington PG6025 All-in-1 Lithium Powered Grooming Kit Best Cordless Beard Trimmer 2018

The Remington PG6025 All-in-1 Lithium Powered Grooming Kit is one of the most budget-friendly professional beard trimmers that we have tried. Unlike other beard trimmers that cost around a hundred to a few hundred bucks, this one costs way less than that.

When the trimmer arrived on our doorstep, we did not expect much from it. Knowing that it was an inexpensive piece of grooming equipment, we thought that there is just much we can do about it. We opened its box and we were amazed to find a handful of attachments. It has six different attachments depending on what type of trim we wanted. We did not expect that from a budget grooming kit.

In addition to the attachments, the Kit came with a black drawstring bag out-of-box. Since this professional beard trimmer was portable, the bag came in handy especially when we placed it in our backpack or luggage during a trip.

However, when we inspected the trimmer, we immediately figured out why it was a cheap grooming device. Unlike other beard trimmers that are clad with stainless steel bodies, this Remington model was made of a cheap plastic. Although it was a little flimsier compared to metal beard trimmers, we felt that it will not break easily after we have experienced using it.

Like other beard trimmers, it has an elongated shape. Yet, it has two large indents on both sides, which allowed for a firmer grip. The Power Button is right in front for easy access and it has three green bars below it to show the power status.

A full charge of the lithium-ion battery delivers about 50 to 60 minutes of grooming power with continuous use. What is great with its power is that it does not matter whether it is freshly charged or it only has several minutes left, its power is always at its optimum. The battery is designed to deliver power efficiently to its motor. Though it is portable, there is also an option to use the shaver when it is plugged in.

The blades are made of durable surgical steel. They feel that they will last a long time and will not get dull easily even with regular use. The blades can trim precisely and the blades are said to be self-sharpening so we can expect the blades to last long similar to other professional beard trimmers.

This is a very nice beard trimmer to have in your travel bag. Its battery life was enough for us and at rare times we needed more power, we just plugged it in and enjoyed a nice glass of wine from the fridge.

The Philips Series 9000 Hair Clipper for Ultimate Precision with 400 Length Settings – HC9450/13 is one of the fanciest multi-purpose trimmers that we have tried. Simply by looking at it, we can already say that it is the right device to get that professional and precise trim every time. With the beard trimmer, it felt like we can get a barbershop trim whenever we wanted, at a fraction of the cost and without leaving our home.

The hair clipper boasts several professional features. The one we liked that most are the digital swipe action that makes it extremely easy to use. Moreover, this professional beard trimmer has motorized combs that give a promise of accuracy everytime we had to groom our beard. This promised a high-speed trim, thanks to its DualCut technology. This advanced trimming technology grooms a beard twice as fast compared to other regular Philips trimmers.

The 9000 series gives utmost versatility. With its wide range of length settings, we were able to adjust it between 0.5 and 42 mm. This gave us more options when grooming our beard. This also allowed us to groom small and hard to reach areas with utmost accuracy.

The model is a portable professional beard trimmer. On a single charge, this beard trimmer provides at to 90 minutes of non-stop grooming power. Its battery is designed well to deliver power to its durable motor efficiently. Hence, when we go on business trips, we can use the hair clipper for a considerable amount of time even when we do not have immediate access to a power socket.

This is not a fancy stubble trimmer for nothing. Its blades are made of strong titanium and they are all self-sharpening. We instantly felt that they will not get dull or blunt easily even if we plan to use it for years.

The Philips Series 9000 Hair Clipper for Ultimate Precision with 400 Length Settings – HC9450/13 has a feature that allows it to remember the preferred settings of the user. Therefore, we did not need to set it up all the time when we used it. We just turned the power on and we were set to grooming our beard.

After experiencing the Philips Ultimate Precision trimmer for several weeks, we can say that it is the strongest candidate for the best cordless beard trimmer. All its features packed in a compact, easy to carry, and fancy beard trimmer easily puts it on the top of our list.

5. Braun Beard Trimmer BT5050

Braun Beard Trimmer BT5050 Best Cordless Beard Trimmer 2018

When it comes to men’s grooming kits and devices, Braun is one of the household names that many trust. We tested the BT5050 to see how this powerhouse delivers. We had high expectations about it since it is from one of the top brands in the market and Overall, we can say it performed really well.

As a mid-range model, Braun Beard Trimmer BT5050 is relatively light on the budget. Design-wise, the trimmer is dressed in full matte black, which gives it its elegant and classy demeanor. We can describe it that this cordless beard trimmer is as manly as it gets. The only thing manlyer (if thats even a word) would be a nicely groomed lumberjack beard and some Man tools to go with!

The elongated shape allowed us to have a firm grip on the beard trimmer when using it. Moreover, it paved way for a tight grip so that the trimmer does not slip from our hands when we are grooming our beard. This also made sure that we can do a precise trim on our beard all the time.

The unit comes with two detachable combs that have a range between 1 and 10 mm. Although this may seem a bit limiting, we found it sufficient for our grooming needs. The professional beard trimmer offered 0.5 steps of adjustment, which is enough fine control for us. Adjusting this was easy using the dial on the front side of the beard trimmer.

As a trusted brand for beard trimmers, we were pretty sure that the blades can last a long time. Maybe, with proper care, they can even last a lifetime. In the entire beard trimmer ensemble, we strongly felt that the blades on the BT5050 will be the last ones to fail. They felt durable during and after use.

The cordless beard trimmer supports both corded and cordless use. It has an efficient battery inside for beard trimming on-the-go. However, this model has a Nickel-metal hydride battery rather than a lithium-ion battery. Therefore, it takes a long time to fully charge it, around 7 to 8 hours in our experience, and it will just give about an hour of cordless power. The corded option comes in handy in case we were not able to fully charge it.

Overall, we found the Braun a trustworthy travel beard trimmer. It may be lacking in the battery source area but it is still a respectable beard trimmer. For its budget-friendly price, we can say that it is still must-have beard trimmer especially for those who are just starting out on trimming their own beards.
