Without any time, let’s mention the main addition of the Philips Norelco BT9285/41 9100, which is the integrated laser guide to help you trim everything to perfection. This can ensure that your lines are perfectly drawn and that, even in a hurry, you can create something that’s presentable and equal. When I saw this, I thought that this was finally something useful that was being added to a trimmer, instead of questionable technology or feature that we cannot always verify. This gave me a strong buying argument in favor of the BT9285/41 9100. Its price is pretty high, so the satisfaction of getting this kind of cutting-edge (no pun intended) feature makes you feel satisfied with this purchase.
I read in some of the reviews that some people didn’t think it was that useful, but really if you’re into trying new things when trimming your beard, I don’t see how you would think this isn’t the coolest thing ever. Some people would question its use by saying that the laser moves around with the trimmer, but it’s when you’re about to place the trimmer on the skin that this is the most useful. Is it really worth it? I think that it is. Even if you get interrupted, you can continue a perfect line thank to this. It’s an advantage that can lead to less mistakes over time, especially if you took the time to grow your beard for a while. Also, laser isn’t any danger for your eyes in case that was scaring you away from making a purchase.

Aside from the simplicity, the Philips Norelco BT9285/41 9100 shines in its simplicity of use and the quality of its cut. Just like other models in the line, the BT9285/41 offers 17 length settings which vary very slightly from one to another with an interval of only 0.2 millimeters between each, so you can get exactly what you’re looking for. Once your length is selected, you can start to cut and benefit from the trimmer’s agile end to cut even the most difficult hair.

You can go through the manual if you want as it’s always useful, but you will find that this Norelco is very straightforward to use, even if you’re a beginner who chose to go with a higher-end trimmer anyway. The blades are self-sharpening and provide a great cut every time.
The charge can last for about an hour, so this is definitely enough to get you through a small trip even if you forgot your charger at home. We always think this will never happen, but once that urgent business trip shows up and you have to pack, the charger can often stay in the drawer. The BT9285/41 9100 gives you enough power to survive for a while. To carry it around, a pouch is included within the package. The rest of the accessories include two combs.
