That is precisely why we have compiled a list featuring the 5 best beard trimmers for that pesky stubble growth. If you feel like you’re in need of the perfect electric companion for you and your beard, then do not leave this list unread!
Best Beard Trimmer For Stubble
We are starting off this list with the Phillips Norelco 7000 which is a state of the art device by the brand best for beard trimming, detailing and overall maintenance.
Talking about design first, this lightweight device has a silver body with a little bit of black around the edges and is pretty good to look at. Downwards, its handle is made from plastic and the fact that the self-sharpened blades are attached to the device means that this makes for a very compact, convenient and ergonomic design by the company. It is powered by the unique lift and trim technology that not only raises the hair but also swiftly cuts them to precision. Furthermore the stainless steel blades mean that they offer extra protection for those users that have an allergy to nickel based blades.
Although not a 100 percent waterproof, it is advertised as having the 0option for both wet and dry use. Although since it is both corded and cordless, it is wiser to not use it as a wet device especially if charging with a cord. The trimming lengths offered with the packaging are pretty impressive as they range from 17 precision settings that go up till 13 mm.
After you have charged the device for an hour you will get an unparalleled 70 minutes of uninterrupted use which is quite exceptional as is any device that gives more output than it receives.
Included in the packaging was a brush, 3 trimmers and an adapter so that was a little bit of a let-down in terms of accessories.
Why we like it:
- 70 minutes of charge time
- Wet or Dry Use
- Exceptional Design
If you are looking for a beard trimmer that will get rid of your stubble while providing the ultimate comfort then you may have found your device. The Con Air flex head trimmer aka the “Super I-Stubble Trimmer” uses an extremely precise set of adjustments via its range of lengths from 0.4 mm to 0.5 mm to establish length control. In case you want to pick up from where you left the next time, its unique memory feature allows you to keep that in place.
As the name suggests it employs flex head technology that glides along the contours of the face meaning it will never cause any irritation or harm to your face. It is not just for the beard as it tackles sideburns and other bits just as well, providing the cleanest shave ever.
Now, let’s look at some of its main features.
This device has an ultra-powerful trimmer that will help you tame your unruly stubble like it’s nobody’s business! The best thing about stubble trimmers is that they provide the user with an array of features for the trimming which will enable you to set the best settings for your specific needs.
The thing about a fully grown stubble is that it is not only a tricky set of hair to handle but it also requires a certain amount of delicate tending. What this means is you need a trimmer that will do the job in one go instead of repeated exposure to potential cuts and irritation. This trimmer will provide you the best care for your beard and that too in a super quick and efficient manner.
As mentioned earlier, this device has a wide array of length settings to provide you the freedom to customize your beard as you desire. This is great not only for the aspect of customization but also for styling as per the latest trends or as you desire. With length settings from 0.4 mm to 5 mm, what more could you need?
Corded or cordless
The best thing about having options is that you never have to worry about being in situations where you won’t have exactly what you need. Whether on the go or at home, the Con Air has you sorted. Use it while it charges on its cord within the confines of your home. Or if you’re out on that very important business meeting out of town, just grab a few batteries and you’ll be meeting ready in no time. It’s all about the freedom and ease that the machine provides and how you wish to use it.
When you think about a hand held device you want to make sure it actually fits well in your hand, doesn’t feel uncomfortable to grasp and has ergonomic features such as user friendly buttons and switches or even better, if it has rubberized handles. A smaller sized device also means it is easier to carry for extended periods of time.
Great Battery Life
Because this device comes with a dual setting of ease when it comes to charging you simply don’t need to worry whether this machine will have your back when you forget to charge it last. Whether corded or cordless, you can expect the device to work anytime, anywhere you want. The fun fact about it being cordless is that it allows you to use it wet or dry.

We’re moving on to one of our favourite brands when it comes to beard and stubble trimmers and that is the Phillips Body Groom which of course as its name suggests is for your entire body. However its dual side grooming technology has us impressed as it comes equipped with both a trimmer head at the bottom and a foil shaver at the top. So you can do both at the same time. This makes the device super versatile and flexible in terms of choice and freedom to decide.
Let’s talk about its feature in more detail.
Stainless Steel Blades
Part of why the device is great for sensitive skin is due to the fact that is equipped with the very best stainless steel blades that unlike nickel ones do not cause irritation or redness. The 5100’s blades are not only completely safe to use but are also really good at what they do. You can accept an exceptional result from these blades as they shave and trim efficiently and quickly.
The trimmer and foil shavers
What’s one our major pet peeve when it comes to foil shavers? Well, the fact that they can be slightly uncomfortable to the touch. Well you do not need to worry about this issue with the body groomer as it has foils which are sensitive to the touch and give the user a smooth shaving experience. Fully body shaving has never been easier as the foil cap which is situated on the top of the device delivers a comfortable shaving experience.
Now moving on to the trimmer which offers flexibility and ease of manoeuvring to even the trickiest areas such as the nose or neck areas. It trims with a certain level of precision and provides a cleaner playing field before you move on to shaving the areas. You do not have to worry about causing any harm to your skin as the swift movements mean you only have to run the device through the area once.
This is a feature that a lot of brands don’t pay much heed to but that can easily become their biggest flaw as more and more users expect ergonomics to be a vital part of any electronic hand held device. And why shouldn’t they? After all it will be them that’s going to be using the device for long periods of time, especially if they’re tackling their entire body. So you need a design that’s easy to hold, lightweight and ergonomic.
The body groomer 5100 has just that as it comes with a rubber grip and will not slip out of your hands or fall down, which may be dangerous to the device or to you.
Great Battery Life
As if all of these features were not enough, the body groomer 5100 also gives you the best charge times with up to 80 minutes of uninterrupted trimming bliss. While most people simply need 20 minutes maximum to deal with all areas quickly, this device allows you to take your time if needed.
Why we like it:

It also hosts six different attachments which allow for a more personalized shaving experience.

Remington’s lithium-ion charged batteries are already the talk of the town for their superior performance and long-lasting battery life. They not only power the entire device without chances of lag but also supply a certain amount of torque to the motor directly. An hour-long charging will last you with 60 minutes of use. Since the lithium battery loses power less frequently, it doesn’t matter if there are only 3 minutes of charging left, it will function at the same speed and performance.
With state of the art surgical grade steel blades, you can expect the finest and long-lasting steel blades that won’t dull over time.
