The modern man should consider himself fortunate because he is presented with a lot of choices when it comes to styling and grooming. Whether he’s on a budget or he’s the type who likes to splurge no matter the price, there is always something for every man who likes to keep himself clean and stylish in a more convenient manner.
For a lot of men, facial hair has a lot of meanings. For some, growing beards and/or mustache may be part of their culture, while some grow them for personal style. Whatever their reason for growing facial hair, there is one thing for certain: they see facial hair as an art and an aesthetic addition to their personality. Perhaps depending on how a man styles it, facial hair may even make them look younger, or make them look wiser – and that adds to his sex appeal. And trimming facial hair properly does the trick.
If you’re the guy who is living on a budget but doesn’t want to be left behind in the stylish grooming department, you’re in sheer luck! The great news is that even the most trusted, blue-chip brands are offering electric groomers that fit just right to your pocket. Affordable they may be, but these electric groomers do not compromise quality, performance and style.
Take Braun BT3040 Men’s Ultimate Hair Clipper – it doesn’t cost a lot, but it provides incredible features that you would not believe that it’s a budget trimmer. If you are intrigued, check out what this grooming tool can offer.
The Written Review
You will be happy what the Braun BT3040 Men’s Ultimate Hair Clipper can do to your facial hair. It has the features that you will normally find on high-priced trimmers.
One of most important considerations for men who are looking for electric trimmers is that they should be easy to control. You don’t want to end up making a mistake by trimming the wrong angle of your beard. The Braun BT3040 has 39 length settings and a “Smart Precision Dial” which offer you 100% total control of your facial hair trimming style. It provides you an exact length and precision with each use, so less hassle and less mistakes when you trim. Whether you want to create a Jason Statham-style stubble or maintain a longer beard style, the Braun BT3040 delivers them all.
Apart from the two attachments that come every unit, the Braun BT3040 is also supplied with the Gillette Fusion ProGlide Razor with FlexBall technology that allows you to create clean, precise and flawless lines and contours. You can also use it to shave or trim body hair, which proves its versatility.
Aside from the ultimate precision and control that it provides, the Braun BT3040 has long-lasting blades. They are made of ultra-sharp stainless steel which is developed to withstand several uses and to resist rusting and dulling. Even if you tend to “abuse” this electric trimmer a lot, the blades will still stay sharp.
Battery life is among the primary concerns of a lot of stylish men who use electric groomers. Well, the Braun BT3040 is a cordless, rechargeable grooming tool that allows you to take it anywhere you go, whether you’re at work or traveling. But while other cordless trimmers do not have a long-lasting battery life, you will find no problem with the Braun BT3040’s new type of lithium ion battery. You can use it for up to an hour of precision trimming with each charge. The glowing green LED light indicates battery status.
Some caveat though that you may wish to forbid… BUT if you are the type who forgets to charge your electric groomer and wants to shave in a hurry, you may find the charging aspect of the Braum BT3040 a bit of a drag. It takes about 8 hours to charge from flat-zero, and requires to be charged again after about an hour. So, it’s definitely not for emergency charging.
The parts of the Braun BT3040 are easily washable, so that you can maintain clean and hygienic shaves every time you use it again. The simple, ergonomic design streamlines the way you shave, and it has a nice, no-fuss design as well. If you are especially a fan of Braun’s products, you will be surprised and delighted at their low-budget electric groomers which can be nearly at par with their more expensive options.
Final Mark from the Beard Institute
We will hold off on giving this tool a final score until we can put up a video review. The only glaring fault of the Braun BT3040 is its painfully slow charging time. But overall, it’s a great all-around grooming tool with a price that you can definitely afford.
