Finding the perfect present for a loved one who already seems to have everything he could possibly need or want can be difficult. If, however, he has a beard, the BT 5050 Braun Beard Trimmer may well be the answer.
The BT 5050 Braun Beard Trimmer
Featuring ultra-sharp, long lasting stainless steel blades (according to an MPG R&D Performance Testing Lab/Claim Support study in December 2015, these blades should last a lifetime), the BT 5050 provides high-performance precision perfect for achieving his personal style day after day – without tugging, pulling or snagging. Combining two trimming combs (detachable) – the 1 – 10 mm precision comb and the 10 – 20 mm long beard comb – with a 25-length-setting rotary dial, this Beard Trimmer also provides plenty of flexibility to allow for any style, from designer stubble to a full beard.
Supplied with a UK (2-pin) bathroom plug for corded use, the BT 5050 has a powerful, rechargeable dual Ni-MH battery that allows for approximately 50 minutes of continuous cordless trimming. A full charge will take around 8 hours, and the charging status is indicated by a LED charging light. Fully washable, this Beard Trimmer can be cleaned quickly and easily under running water. Supplied complete with a travel bag, a cleaning brush and a bottle of oil to keep the blades lubricated, it is available from Amazon at an RRP of just £49.99.
Having no beard (thank heavens) myself, I asked my husband (who has a moustache and occasionally grows his designer stubble into a full beard) to try the BT 5050 for this review. His verdict? Comfortable to hold and easy to use with a simple, smooth and snag-free cutting action. Altogether a very pleasant, good beard trimming operation. My verdict? His moustache has never been so neat and his designer stubble is the perfect length. In a nutshell, the Braun BT 50 is definitely worth the investment and will make a perfect prezzie for your favourite male this Christmas.
