A beard trimmer is one of the most basic purchases when it comes to men’s grooming devices. These devices gained significant popularity since flaunting a beard came back in fashion. Almost every major grooming product manufacturer has its range of trimmers available for sale on e-commerce platforms such as Amazon and Flipkart. Xiaomi has also expanded its personal grooming product portfolio with Xiaomi Beard Trimmer 2. The company claims that their new beard trimmer gets improved design and ergonomics. Priced at Rs 1,999, the trimmer will be available for order starting October 3. Here are five features of Xiaomi Beard Trimmer 2 that are missing in other affordable trimmers.
Battery percentage indicator
The first thing that anyone will notice in the new Xiaomi trimmer is the display placed on the handle. This screen displays the remaining battery percentage. Most of the trimmers in this range only feature a small LED light as battery indicator.
USB Type-C charging
Xiaomi Beard Trimmer 2 gets universal type-C charging unlike conventional USB charging. This will allow users to charge their devices at much faster speeds. The trimmer can be used with and without the cord. The company claims that the product gets 12 minutes of cordless runtime with just 5 minutes of charging.
Almost every trimmer sold in the market gets various length settings and most of them claim to get 0.5mm precision. Xiaomi is no less behind, their trimmer is also claimed to have 0.5mm precision although the products beats the other brands when it comes to length settings. It gets 40 length settings which is quite rare in the price bracket it falls in.
The device gets a unique Travel Lock feature that saves battery while travelling. To enable the travel lock, users can press and hold the power button for 3 seconds until the LED display indicates the Travel lock symbol.
While almost every trimmer gets detachable heads that can be cleaned, only few in the price range get a fully washable body. The new Xiaomi trimmer not only gets a detachable blade but it’s body is also IPX7 water-resistant.
