With its sleek and all black futuristic looking body this certainly is one of the prettiest clippers that we’ve used. It is long and oblique so it was made to be ergonomic and we can say that it fits very well in the hand. This model is completely waterproof so it can also be used under the shower too.
Included in the package are five attachments for styling and trimming purposes. These accessories include a full-size trimmer, detail trimmer, nose trimmer and a moustache and beard trimmer attachment too. There is also a stubble comb included in the grooming kit. The blades are self-sharpening and made out of a precise ground steel and Philips guarantees long endurance and the same performance just like on the first day you started using this kit.
During our testing, we found that this claim was true and there were no signs of blade sharpness deterioration after extended use on various types of hair. The main blade head is a bit narrower than we would have liked although it doesn’t hinder the overall clean cutting and trimming performance. It got the job done in one pass, every single time. With a whopping 18 different length settings, anyone will find this trimmer great for their styling needs. A reliable and a great performing machine.
We liked the good grip of the device and the motor was strong enough to cut clean any type and thickness of hair we needed grooming. The battery autonomy is decent and at around 35 minutes per charge, it will satisfy the needs of even the most demanding users. The charging takes around 10 hours to fully restore the Ni-MH battery to full capacity.
