Although a clean shave provides a neat look, fashion trends change with time and carrying a bearded, rough look has become a common trend now. But I am not talking about letting your beard grow in any way you want. I am talking about a neat and clean bearded look with trimmed sideburns and mustache. A perfect bearded look can only be achieved with the help of a professional barber or at home with the help of a high-quality beard trimmer. And when we are talking about high-quality trimmers, how can we not talk about Braun!

Braun is one of the most famous names in the world of male grooming products. It is known to infuse a balance of efficiency, innovation, and durability on each of its products. While Braun has a wide range of beard trimmers, the one that has impressed me the most is the BT5070 Beard Trimmer. If you are looking forward to having that sexy bearded look, go through this Braun BT5070 review to choose the best trimmer among all the options currently available in the market.


Let us begin this Braun BT5070 review by talking about the accessories that are included in it. In the box, you’ll find-

  • 2 Trimming Combs

Now, let us have a look at some of the most impressive features of this trimmer.

4. Slide-up Detail Trimmer

While the beard trimmer does an excellent job of trimming any length of hair, mustaches and sideburns need finer detailing to get a perfect look. So this beard trimmer from Braun also features a slide-out detail trimmer to make sure that you get clean and precise results every single time.

6. Rechargeable Ni-MH Battery

The Braun BT 5070 Beard Trimmer features a rechargeable Ni-MH battery that gets fully charged in one hour. And once the battery is completely charged, you can use this trimmer continuously for about 50 minutes. Moreover, you don’t have to wait until the batter is fully charged to use the trimmer, as you can use it while it is connected to the charger as well.

7. Corded and Cordless Use

We all know how it feels when our electric shavers run out of juice in the middle of shaving. It will cause pulling and discomfort. To avoid such situations Braun offered both corded and cordless functions in this trimmer. You can easily plug it in and go on with your business without waiting for the battery to get charged at all.

Cleaning & Maintenance

One of the most important factors to consider while purchasing a beard trimmer is how easy it is to clean the trimmer. Braun is known to manufacture products that are carefully designed after considering all the aspects to make sure that their products are highly user-friendly. This Braun BT 5070 Beard Trimmer is 100% waterproof and you can easily wash it under running water. Moreover, it also comes with a small cleaning brush that you can use to remove the stuck hairs from the head of the trimmer.

It is highly recommended that you should clean the trimmer after every use. Once it is dry, use the included lubricant oil on the blades to prevent corrosion and ensure that the trimmer functions flawlessly for a long period of time. While the blades of the trimmer are made from stainless-steel which is not known to usually corrode, it is still recommended that you should use the oil after every use to further diminish the chances of corrosion. Lubricating the blades will also allow the trimmer to function smoothly.
