The blades it features are also heavy-duty stainless steel, with a design that makes them self-sharpening — meaning your trim will always remain sharp.
Designed for use on the go
With support for corded as well as cordless use, Mi Beard Trimmer is a versatile gadget. A 5 minute charge allows for 10 minutes of use, great for a quick trim in the nick of time. What’s more, thanks to the in-box charging cable, Mi Beard Trimmer can be charged using a USB adaptor or Mi Power Bank — truly on the go!
Mi Beard Trimmer also features IPX7 certification, meaning that it can withstand submersion in water for up to 1 meter for 30 minutes making it fully washable. Besides, an easy-to-use travel lock makes Mi Beard Trimmer an ideal inclusion in every toiletry kit. The quad-edge design allows for a secure grip while giving the trimmer a refreshed look that breaks the clutter.
