Best Beard Trimmer Philips BT3221/15 corded & cordless Titanium blade Beard Trimmer Fast charge.

Philips recently launched seven new trimmers in the Indian market. One of those trimmers was the Philips BT3221/15. Here, we will do a full review of the Philips DuraPower BT3221, including its features, pros, cons, and also compare it with similar trimmers.

What’s In The Box Of The Philips BT3221/15 Inside

The box of the Philips BT3221, you will find only a few things. The first thing is the trimmer itself, the blades of which are protected by a plastic wrap. You’ll need to remove the wrap before you can start using the trimmer. 

The second thing is the charger. It’s a standard 2-pin charger with universal compatibility. That means it supports a voltage range of 100-240V. That means that you can take this trimmer abroad and still charge it with the same charger.

Philips BT3221 Box In Philips BT3221 you’ll find the comb that will have to be attached to the top of the trimmer to use it effectively. You will also find a small cleaning brush inside, which will help you clean out trimmed hair from the head easily. 

The last thing that you will find inside is a travel pouch in which you can store the pouch and take it with you. However, the pouch is flimsy and of poor quality. We would recommend finding an alternative travel bag to carry the Philips-BT3221 with you. You will also find some paperwork and a user manual inside—but hardly anyone ever uses or reads it. 

Now here are the things that you will find inside the box of the Philips BT32221 Beard Trimmer:

  • The Trimmer
  • Philips Universal charger
  • Trimmer Comb
  • Philips Cleaning Brush
  • Philips Travel Pouch for carrying Trimmer
  • User manual , Warranty Card and other paperwork

In short, here are the things that you’ll find inside the box of the Philips BT32221 Beard Trimmer: The trimmer Universal charger Trimmer Comb Cleaning Brush Travel Pouch User manual and other paperwork Philips DuraPower BT3221 Features Complete List There are plenty of features in the Philips BT3221 which make it a very attractive trimmer for everyday use. 

The first important feature to discuss is Durapower Technology. It’s a fancy way of saying that Philips has included a battery that not only charges quickly but also lasts longer. Philips It’s similar to the fast-charging technology that we find in modern smartphones. And the battery life is pretty good. 

The Philips BT3221’s battery charges up completely in just 1 hour and lasts close to 90 minutes on a single charge. That is one of the best battery performances on any trimmer that we’ve ever seen. 

20 Lock-in Length Setting

The second feature is the trimming range. The Philips BT3221 has 20 lock-in settings which start at a minimum of 0.5mm and go up to 10mm with a 0.5mm jump or precision. Philips-bt3221-features-at-a-glance The blades on DuraPower 3221/15 are stainless steel based and have a titanium coating on top—which makes them strong and corrosion-resistant. 

Although, you will not get a clean shave to look as you would get with a proper shave. Apart from the extended battery life, all these features are present in plenty of other trimmers. Let’s talk about some of the features that are exclusive to the new 3000 series trimmers, specifically the Philips BT3221. 

Philips Titanium coated rounded tip Blades.

The twin-blades are designed in a way that the blades sharpen each other while the trimmer is being used. That results in an elongated blade life that lasts many years. Similar to other trimmers, Philips BT3221 also features a zoom wheel for choosing your look. There are a total of 20 settings available, which start at 0.5mm and go up to 10mm, each with a 0.5mm jump. You can also remove the shaving comb and use the trimmer directly on your face for a much cleaner look. 

The first thing to know is the new lift and trim system. The new shape of the blades and comb are designed in a way such that the hair is lifted and fed to the blade. This results in faster cutting, and Philips claims that the BT32221 cuts facial hair 30% faster. Many people also reported that they get cleaner shaves and don’t have to struggle or move the trimmer multiple times in an area to get a good trim. Lift and trim system Philips BT3221 review.

The second thing exclusive to the new 3000 series trimmers is the corded and cordless operation. Older Philips trimmers were recommended to be used only cordlessly, not while charging, although some users still used it while charging. The new 3000 series trimmers, including the BT3221, have gotten rid of the problem altogether. 

Philips Fast Charging Indicator.

Now you can use the Philips BT3221 while it’s being charged—which makes it very convenient to use. The last important thing on the Philips BT3221 is the new battery indicator. Older trimmers only gave a battery indication when they were being charged. 

You couldn’t know when the battery was low. It was quite a bummer, and many people constantly complained about it. Finally, Philips listened and include a decent battery indicator, which indicates when the battery is low, being charged, or is fully charge. Here is how the battery notifications work. 

Battery Low: The notification light will turn orange During charging. The notification light will blink green Fully charged. The notification light will remain steady green. Please note that the full-battery light turns itself off in about 30 minutes. If you accidentally left your Philips BT3221 on charging and returned to see the light turned off, that means the trimmer is fully charged.
