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.

The Philips Norelco Series 5100 Beard and Head Trimmer includes the following:
– Series 5100 Trimmer
– Beard and Stubble Comb
– Short Hair Comb
– Long Hair Comb
– Charger
– Brush

Good Luck!

Awesome review and very professional camera work! I’ve been looking for a grooming tool that helps me get that 5 o’clock shadow look but on my head because I don’t like the Mr. clean skin close feel that I get with a razor. I’ve been looking at the Conair for men istubble but this is definitely on my radar now. How did “even trim at every angle” claim hold up? Would appreciate the reply and please don’t forget about my suggestion of the Conair istubble please!

First of all, this channel is very helpful. I am actually looking for an electric shaver or trimmer that would give me that 5’o clock shadow look but would also be decent enough for body use ( legs in particular). I don’t really want to break the bank so 60$ is the absolute max I would entertain. What do you recommend boss?

Adam R says:

Thank you bro, I personally love Philips, thanks for making this video ❤️❤️❤️❤️

Ahmad Naimee says:

Do you have any suggestions for trimming a beard into the sideburns so it transitions smoothly? I was using the Phillips Norelco 5100 at 4 mm setting all around my beard but I wanted a more natural finish into my sideburn. Should I use a 4.5 setting as I go higher up into my sideburn? If so how high up do I go?

Great review again.

Great review!

BlaZe iT says:

I’ve bought a Multigroom 7000 not too long ago, and I would love to have more length options. Would you reccomend buying this even though I have a 7000?

Pete Andrews says:

Great review – can you do some for hair clippers please?

John McGuinn says:

You didn’t mention trimming the mustache just above the lip, which is a tricky part for me. How good is this beard trimmer for that?
