Babyliss 7107U Review
We thought we would do a review of the Babyliss 7101U beard trimmer as for £10 it is getting really good reviews and that always catches our eye here at the Shaving Emporium. This is a battery operated trimmer which can be used on both the beard and the moustache. The Babyliss company is a well known brand who are in the male grooming market.
Right away we noticed that this one comes with a 3-year guarantee and that should give you some peace of mind. Well that along with a really great price point.
As you can see it comes in a nice presentation box but what do you actually get for your money.
Babyliss 7107U – Main Features
We think this one is ideal for travel. We wouldn’t pick it as our main trimmer though it will certainly do that job. You can check out our top 10 trimmers to see which one we think is the best. Nevertheless this one is good and has over 120 reviews by buyers at Amazon who rate it at 4.2 out of 5 stars, and that is a nice solid and consistent rating.
There is a 5-position comb and it is that feature which allows you to set the length of your beard and hair growth. These cover a range of 3 mm and all the way up to 15 mm. If you remove all the guides then you can get the cut length down to just 1 mm. As always start at the highest setting (15 mm) and then work your way down until you get the right length for you.
As well as these it also comes with 3 jaw line combs, which allow you to vary and blend your beard, to suit the look that you want to achieve. These are 1.5 mm, 2.5 mm and 3.5 mm. If you have never used these types of jaw line trimmer combs before then be careful. They do take a little bit of practise to master the art and give you the style that you want to get. Again start with the highest setting and work slowly until you achieve your own look.
The actual cutting blades are made from good quality stainless steel and they do cut nice and clean.
It also has a small stand which helps with storage. Like most of these products they come with a cleaning brush. All in all it is a really good little package for £10.
Review OverviewWe checked through the reviews on various websites and the single common theme was that for this price you can not go wrong. This is not a super fancy trimmer, but it gets the job done and can handle thick beards with some ease. Often people and buyers are put off if the price is too low. At £10 that could be in your thoughts as it was certainly in ours.
That isn’t what the reviews say though.It uses AA batteries so getting a set of rechargeable batteries will save you money in the long run. Just be aware that products like these will use a lot of battery power, so always have a few on standby. This trimmer comes with a set of batteries that will at least get you started.
The good thing about being battery only is that you don’t have to worry about leads. It also means that you will need batteries for it to work. Usually I just buy those large strips of AA batteries at the Pound Store or the Pound Shop and have them in my drawer. I prefer rechargeable ones, but I don’t always remember to charge them. Nice to have a few spare ones.
In summary, just remember that this costs £10 and we think that you will be well impressed with that you get for your money.
