In this video, I give you my full review of the Philips Norelco Series 5100 Beard and Head Trimmer, Model BT5210/42.
Philips touts this trimmer for its hair lift comb, that lifts and guides hairs to the blade, for efficient one pass trimming. It’s engineered for an even beard and hair trim at every angle, and said to achieve the perfect 3-day stubble.
Currently, the Philips Series 5100 trimmer ranks at #10 on Amazon for the category of beard and mustache trimmers.
For those that need tight incremental trimming lengths for beard and hair, and are happy with a stubble finish, this Philips Series 5000 trimmer is the grooming device to get the job done.
Taking a look inside the Philips Norelco Series 5100 Beard and Head trimmer box, you’ll find the trimmer, beard and stubble comb, short hair comb, long hair comb, charger, and brush.
Now, if you take a look at my previous video on the Philips Norelco Multigroom 3000 and Multigroom 7000, you’ll notice that these grooming devices have a metal trimmer attachment similar to the Series 5100, as well as their own set of beard and hair trimming guards.
While the Philips Multigroom 7000 and Multigroom 3000 require you to continuously switch attachments from one guard length setting to the next, the Philips Norelco Beard and Head trimmer utilizes 3 beard and hair combs that work in combination with a built in zoom wheel.
The beard and short hair trimming combs correlate to the red digits on the top row of the zoom wheel, while the long hair comb correlates with the silver digits on the bottom row.
For beard and short hair, the Norelco Series 5100 allows for 17-integrated trim settings, starting in 0.2mm increments from lengths 0.4mm to 2mm, 0.5mm increments from lengths 2mm to 5mm, and in 1mm increments from lengths 5 to 7mm.
For long hair, the Philips Series 5100 also utilizes 17-integrated trimmer settings, starting in 0.2mm increments from 6.4mm to 8mm, 0.5mm increments from 8 to 11mm, and 1mm increments from 11mm to 13mm.
As far as battery life, the Philips Norelco Beard and Head Trimmer has a Lithium-ion battery and requires 1hr of charge time for 70 minutes of cordless use.
Additionally, it has a 5-minute quick charge good for the length of one cordless cut and can be used plugged in for continuous use.
The trimmer and all the attachments are fully washable, however, the Series 5100 is only for use in dry condition and is not for bathing in the shower.
Overall, the Philips Norelco Series 5100 Beard and Head trimmer is great for trimming your hair and beard at tight length settings. I recommend this product for those with shorter hair or beards below 13mm, as the long hair guard only goes up to this setting.
For those that want to trim and detail with precision, the Multigroom 7000 is your go to trimmer, while those looking for a bargain price will find the Multigroom 3000 meets their needs.
