If you are one of those men that needs to buy something that doesn’t look like the same product everyone else uses, the Remington HC5550 might be your next purchase. For those looking to find a beard trimmer that can shorten their facial hair and be used to create neat and crisp lines of their goatee, this product could be the perfect addition to your collection of razors.
This unit features several state of the art features including the ability to plug it into the USB slot of your computer when on the move. What other features make this beard trimmer a must-add for anyone in search of a new device?
When it comes to being affordable, the Remington HC5550 is up there with the best of them in the class. This unit is cheaper than a lot of alternatives. Just because it is cheaper doesn’t mean that it won’t do a quality job on your facial hair. Remington gives you plenty of time to test the product with their five-year warranty.
Blade Quality and Motor
The blades are titanium coated which help give them extra cutting power to slice through even thick beards and also to reduce the vibration of the trimmer itself. Something that will make people excited about this trimmer is not having to keep track of a tiny bottle of blade oil. The blades are self-sharpening and require no oil to ensure clean cuts every time. The fact that the blades are made of titanium make it more than 300 times stronger than conventional and traditional stainless steel blades.
The motor on the trimmer is capable of accurately cutting through your thick beard without getting clogged. This can be done by using the turbo boost feature.
Attachments and Batteries
The Remington HC5550 comes with three attachments that allow you to choose any beard length from 0 to 14. The unit can be used for beards as well as the hair on your head. The attachments can be removed with ease during the cutting process and can be washed simply by running them under water.
The battery life on this unit will give you as many as 40 minutes of continuous usage without needing to recharge. The battery on this unit is a standard battery that takes several hours to fully charge. The unit can be charged with standard AC power in any wall outlet and in a way that it stands out above the other trimmers in the same class, can be charged by plugging it into your laptop via USB cable. The trimmer contains a LED indicator that will tell you when your unit is done charging and when it needed to be charged to begin with.
The design of the unit is another positive. It is ergonomically designed to be comfortably fit into your hand and with rubberized grips; you will be able to keep hold of the trimmer at all times, wet or dry. If you decide to use the unit on your own head, it could be too difficult to hold yourself, but if you are planning on opening your own barber shop, this would be the perfect tool to add to your bag. It comes with its own little pouch to allow for easy transport from job to job or even in your suitcase. With this unit, you will eliminate the need to have a backup disposable razor and can of shaving cream.
The Remington HC5550 is one of those beard trimmers that is meant to last a long time and keep the stubble on your face from becoming any more than that.
