As someone who’s sported a beard (well, a close approximation of a beard) for over five years now I can safely say if there’s one thing I do know all about it’s beard trimmers. Trust me, I’ve tried them all. From dinky little ones to big, stubble-munching muthas. And I’m always left disappointed.
The last one I used (the Philips Turbovac) nearly drove me to wet shaving such was its inadequacy (it’s big as a house, doesn’t suck and can’t get to those tricky bits under your hooter).
So, it is with much delight that I can tell you that the new Remington Connector is quite brilliant.
Not only does it power through facial hair, giving nice and even results, it manages to reach those awkward bits and – most gloriously of all – you can actually charge it up via your computer’s USB port. One day all grooming gadgets will be like this.
