When it comes to innovations, manufacturers of beard trimmers are not lacking in imagination, but faced with this growing offer, it is not always easy to find your way around. Among the latest innovations, the emphasis is now on precision. Three leading brands have created clippers designed to make your life as a bearded man easier. These are the Oneblade Pro QP6520 / 20 models from PHILIPPS, the Durable mower from REMINGTON and the I-Shaper from PANASONIC.
The OneBlade Pro QP6520 mower
If you are already familiar with the One Blade range from Philips, then you know how handy and practical this trimmer is, since it is completely waterproof and can be used in the shower. The Oneblade razor test confirms its many strengths. Its flat head makes this device a hybrid model halfway between the razor and the trimmer. With an autonomy of 90 minutes you will appreciate the QP6520 / 20 OneBlade for its express charging time in just one hour.
This new model has an LED screen that displays the charge level of the battery. You can use it alone or with the precision shoe. With a simple gesture on the wheel you can adapt the cutting height from 0.4 mm to 10 mm. The precision is there and you can easily get a very close shave with great comfort. The blade lasts approximately 3 to 4 months for use 2 to 3 times per week.
What are the differences with the Durable by REMINGTON and the I-Shaper by PANASONIC?
As its name suggests, the Durable model from REMINGTON has been designed not to change the blade and in the shaving sensation it is closer to the Oneblade range. It is in fact also a hybrid trimmer that can be used like a classic razor. Its disadvantage is its charging time which is 4 hours but which is compensated by operation on the mains.
Its 4 cutting heights (1mm, 2mm, 4mm, 6mm) make it a relatively basic trimmer but its ergonomics and good grip allow precise trimming for the contours of the beard. It shaves closely but not too much thanks to its double blade.
As for the PANASONIC I-Shaper, it stands out from other mowers on the market by its side-mounted head and is seen as the absolute tool for precision. With 20 different cutting heights and a dynamic comb, it has a double ergonomics because it can be used from the front or side while enjoying 50 minutes of battery life after an hour of charging. The downside for lovers of shaving in the shower is its lack of waterproofing and also its weight which can be a drag when taking it on a trip or for repetitive passages. It does have a solid metal look and its durability won't disappoint. It is a sure value that will accompany you for a long time.
The match between these different mowers is very close because all three of them are excellent products that arrive elsewhere in the best rankings of the comparisons made by specialized sites.
