Beard Trimmers

Post  Logan on Tue Nov 24, 2009 9:44 am

My trusty Norelco trimmer finally gave out. The Ni-Cad battery actually lasted far longer than it's expectancy. Kohl's had a big sale this past weekend on personal trimmers. But when I got to the store I was saddened to see that the Norelco was out of my price range. I wound up purchasing the 13-in one Conair rechargeable. So far I'm pleased with the purchase. It's very well-constructed with a shiny solid chrome body, unlike the Norelco's shoddy plastic. And the blades gave my goatee a sharp tiddy trim.

I was under the impression that Conair products were junk. But when I grew my beard last month I was looking for a trimmer and wound up buying the GMT182CS, a rechargeable Conair. The sales associate told me the battery operated Conairs are the ones that are junk.

A beard in whatever form requires a lot more attention than a stache or goat, unless the desired result is to appear like the Unibomber or Grizzly Adams. So as I started to let my beard grow out I began contemplating what I would need to groom the new growth. I knew from the advice of friends with beards that typically you want to wait at least two to three weeks before you do serious shaping so that the beard with fill out some. When the second week was ending I started looking in various stores to see what was available. I came across this model from Conair that was rechargeable, seemed to be fairly sturdy, and featured a wide array of attachments and decided to give it a try. So far, so good.

My Conair trimmer really keeps it's charge for a long time. That's a plus in my book.
If you're in the market for a new trimmer this X-mas, I say buy a Conair. You won't regret it.

One trimmer is as good as another.

I use scissors and a barber's comb.
