The Philips Norelco BG2040 trimmer is a great body trimming unit. It has unique dual ended capabilities, allowing you to get a super close shave with one pivoting end, and also groom anywhere with the trimmer on the other end. Both ends feature hypo-allergenic metal so you don’t get any painful razor burn.

Being cordless and waterproof, they’ve made the BG2040 trimmer a good option to travel with, as well as usable in the shower.

The Written Review

We’ll have a video review up soon, but for now, we know a fair amount about this product based on reviews from actual users from around the web.

The fact that this trimmer can do basically everything seems to be a pretty unanimous positive point. If you’re sick of having two different grooming units and searching around for bits and pieces, your search might just stop here. With 54% of people on Amazon giving a 5 star review, there’s got to be something right with it.

The trimming end helps you keep your beard/goatee groomed and even with extreme ease. On the other side, shaving head will give you a nice, smooth, even shave with the pivoting head to get around any angles and curves. To make sure you continue getting the best shave, this unit has a replaceable foil for the shaving end that you should replace every 6-12 months. This will avoid any nicks or pulls.

You’ll be able to use this unit at full battery after a short 1 hour charge. At full battery after 1 hour, you’ll get 50 minutes of cordless use to get all your grooming done. It comes with a folding stand for easy charging and storage when you’re not using it. A great feature on this unit is the LED light that indicates the battery power left. It will show you full, low and charging battery statuses so you can be sure to know when it’s good to go and when you might want to plug it back in for a bit.
