Product Description

Ideal precision

The beard trimmer with as little as 0.2 mm steps

Switch easily between trimming and detailing with the dual-sided reversible trimmer. Just 'lock in' the trimmer wheel for the precise length you want: from as short as 0.4mm up to 10 mm.

Features

bt5260
0.2 mm precision

You can adjust the cutting length with good precision to give you exactly the trim you want. The length settings go up in tiny 0.2 mm steps between 0.4 mm and 1 mm, then in 0.5 mm steps between 1 mm and 5 mm, and finally in 1 mm steps between 5 mm and 10 mm -- giving you ideal precision with control.

bt5260
100% waterproof

To clean the trimmer head, simply rinse it under the tap.

bt5260
17 lock-in length settings

To select your preferred trim length, just turn the zoom wheel on the handle until the length you want is displayed. Your chosen length is now 'locked in' for a precise and even trim.

bt5260
3-day beard every day

If you want an ideal 3-day beard, just use the trimmer's shortest setting of 0.4 mm. For an ideally groomed longer beard, simply adjust the setting to the exact length you need.

bt5260
Beard comb

The design of the beard comb gives you more control, allowing you to trim your beard evenly.

bt5260
Built to last

All of Philips grooming products are built to last. They come with a worldwide voltage compatibility, and they never need to be oiled.

bt5260
Dual-sided trimmer

Take off the adjustable length comb, and there's a reversible, dual-sided precision trimmer underneath. One side is a 32mm high-performance trimmer. Turn it around, and there's a 15mm-wide precision trimmer -- ideal for getting into small spaces, like under your nose or around your mouth. It's designed to cut very close while still protecting your skin, and its small size and angled design make it easy to see what you are doing for fine lines and details.

bt5260
Rechargeable and corded use

You get 60 minutes of cordless use after a 1-hour charge. If you run out of battery power while trimming, just plug it in and keep trimming.

bt5260
Skin-friendly high performance

The steel blades lightly brush against each other, so they sharpen themselves as you trim. The blades stay extra-sharp to always cut hair neatly and effectively, but have rounded blade tips and combs to prevent skin irritation.

Box Contains

Beard comb
Cleaning brush
Cord for charging or corded use

Size Name: NormalItem Package Quantity: 1 Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I acquired this trimmer to replace my previous Philips trimmer which had seen frequent use for the past 10 years. Comparing the two, this newer version - BT5260/33 - didn't seem to have the build quality associated with the older version, and certainly didn't seem to possess the longevity that I would have liked. That said, only time will tell.

The dual-sided trimmer worked extremely well, but without the provision of a hair-collection facility that existed with my old trimmer, the end result can be quite messy. The trimming power and accuracy of this item was excellent, and the results reflect this. I am impressed.

However, adjusting the plastic "comb" settings, and removing the plastic "comb" to access the blade, was quite difficult due to stiffness and a fear of breaking the plastic which seemed quite fragile on my sample. My older Philips trimmer was built like a tank and had a reassuring ease of use, access and solidity that inspired a confidence that I've yet to develop with this version.

The recharging abilities and the ability to wash under the tap after use are excellent. All in all, this product does the job very well indeed. Disappointingly, the only instructions provided are in pictorial version and quite vague. At the end of the day, when it comes to using the trimmer my only criticisms are the lack of a hair-collection facility that would prevent any mess during use, and the lack of a storage/carry-case. Thank you for your time.

This is a well made and ergononically sound trimmer. It has 17 settings and it's a doddle to switch between them using the rotating adjuster on the handle (although it looks like a digital display, it's not). I use it without any of the attachments and it leaves me with about 2-3 days worth of stubble. I have quite an aggressive stubble but this cuts through 2-3 weeks' worth of growth with ease and gives an even shave. The head is rotatable and when rotated there's a smaller head for refined trimming purposes. It takes about 90 minutes to charge from empty and the battery life is extremely impressive and lasts long enough for six complete trims.

For the past 18 months I've been using a BaByliss trimmer that cost £25 and it cuts no better or worse than this one. However, the BaByliss trimmer needs recharging after each trim and the build quality is inferior to this - I'm quite confident that this trimmer can withstand plenty more wear and tear.

In short, there are cheaper alternatives but if you value an effortless cut, a very long lasting battery and a superior build quality, then this is the beard trimmer to get.

This is my first trimmer. I use it mainly with 0.4mm, so that the grey hair in the moustache is not very obvious! Using it for 3 times a week for the past 6 months and no issues. I guess the battery life might just be 30 minutes or so. When I bought, the price was £60 while now it is only £38. Thoroughly recommended.

Well, I'll preface this with some perspective: have been using a variety of beard trimmers for 10 years. I only clean shave for funerals, weddings, and the occasional black tie party, depending on the host (that applies to weddings too). This is demonstrated by the fact that last time I clean shaved, I was asked multiple times if I was coming down with the flu. I would describe my beard as medium-to-thick, more on the thick side. This is somewhat of a silver lining as my head hair is medium-to-thin, more on the thin side. Such is life.

Previous trimmer: Babyliss i-stubble 7890u (known in some traps as the 7895u).

The short of it (no pun intended) is that this beard trimmer only trims neatly, effectively, and evenly at the 0.8mm setting and below. I would equate this with a 1-2 day growth. If you set this bad boy to trim at 1.0mm or above, oh my does it kick up a fuss. Too short in some areas, too long in others. Multiple passes to get anywhere. Keep in mind I stuck with this trimmer for a few months trying all manner of technique, so this isn't a knee-jerk reaction. I like to keep my beard at around a 4-5 day growth, which is around 2.4-3.0mm.

If you want an even, fast, precise shave of anything longer than a day's growth, this is not the device for you. I would recommend the Babyliss 7890u though with some hesitation, as the comb on my device broke after about 2 years of use. I will most likely now go for the upgraded Babyliss 7898u though cannot comment on its quality at this stage.

I write this because as a beard connoisseur, I wish I read a review like this before purchase. I would propose a re-classification of device categories: beard trimmer-off-er; and beard length maintainer. The BT5260 most certainly falls into the former category.

2 stars.

Size Name: NormalItem Package Quantity: 1 Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
It's a good trimmer - compact and easy to use (although, as with all trimmers, you'll invariably trim off more than you intended as you get used to the different settings) - but there are enough little niggles to stop it from getting top marks. The plastic hood is certainly problematic at times: because it's more or less locked on at the setting you choose, if you've got a heavy growth that needs shearing you'll soon find quite a buildup of hair between the hood and the blade that'll mean having to unscrew the hood, brush the blade clean (a small brush is provided and is much needed with this model), then reattach it and reset it. By not being able to easily pull it away and back on again it makes it rather more time consuming a process than it needs to be. Most of this you'll have to work out for yourself because, as is the way with almost anything electrical, there's no instruction manual just a leaflet with some not always enlightening sketches. You can download the full manual from the company's website, but again it's time consuming and not ideal if you've just picked this up to take on the road. The lack of a case or stand is sorely felt because the thin base of the surprisingly long unit means that, unlike most beard trimmers, this won't stand upright - not a major problem, but it does tend to take up a lot of room if you've not got the biggest bathroom. But despite all that, it does the job well, retaining its charge for longer than some other trimmers.
