Philips Norelco QT4050/41 Review – Best 7100 Beard Trimmer
The Philip Norelco QT4050 beard and stubble trimmer’s main feature is that is comes with a handy vacuum tool built into the device. This sucks up majority of the hair that its cuts which reduces the cleaning you’ll need to do after you shave. I like this feature because it also saves you from having swept your shirt of the hair after shaving.
The QT4050 has 18 different settings you can use that control how long you want your beard to look. If you’re unsure of the length, it would be a good choice to start at the higher levels and keep the hair longer and move downwards until you get the desired length.
The dial that controls the setting adjustments is located in the middle of the device. It is firm and won’t slip to other levels. Cutting length ranges from 1 mm to 18 mm.
The overall shaving experience is quite good. The product runs smoothly and doesn’t make much noise. Also, the comb has a spring base that allows it to follow the shape of your face. While this clipper comes with a comb and other attachments, if you want a closer, shorter shave, you’ll need to remove the comb feature and use the blade.
For trimming and facial hair maintenance, the product works really well. It enables you to choose how thick or short you want your beard to be.
However, for those who are particular about being able to style their beards, this may not be the best option available. This is because of the blade does not extend far beyond the plastic guard enough. As a result, it has a bit more difficulty in being able to style those hard to reach areas like the cheek line and bottom of the neck to shape them well.
This best beard trimmers of 2017 comes with a power adapter, and a cleaning brush. You’ll have to charge it for 8 hours initially before using. The cordless feature makes it easy to shift whichever way or direction you wish to shave. It also makes it portable enough to travel with.
Maintenance Free for Easier Cleaning
Cleaning up is a lot easier and thanks to the vacuum system. While it doesn’t capture all the stray hairs, it leaves only a few, making cleanup quick. The collection chamber is located right atop the dial that controls the length settings, and all you need to do is open the plastic door and dump the tiny strands of hair in the trash.
Because of the compartment where the hair is stored, it uses a small swing-latch and sometimes hair can be difficult to retrieve or completely clean out, though using the cleaning brush that’s included with the package really helps in this area.
The blades of the Norelco QT4050 are maintenance-free, meaning you will never have to oil them, but it is always worth having a small bottle at hand just in case. Make sure you don’t get it wet though, because it isn’t water resistant.
Overall, this is a simple to use machine that allows for a quick, hassle-free and painless beard trimming experience. The main feature of these clippers is the integrated vacuum system which captures the hairs you cut and allows easy disposal, saving you lots of effort cleaning out the sink each morning.
